About Stacey Montgomery

I just love stationery. Always have. I love art in general. I particularly enjoy seeing the art in nontraditional items. I love beautifully plated food-- that is art. I love thoughtfully designed, modern packaging-- that is art. I love a business card that is so clever, I just have to keep even if I have no interest in the business it represents. That is art. I enjoy peering into the forest after a snowfall-- that is art.

Stacey, definitely don't get discouraged and try to take the ratings with a grain of salt. Even the top designs get some 1's... it's baffling, but that's just how it is. And Minted does have their own aesthetic, so just b/c something isn't picked, doesn't mean it isn't good. It just might not fit with Minted, you know? Anyway, I like having you in the community and I'm sure you'll get a pick soon!

Hi Stacey, I wanted to thank you again for being the first designer back in March to 'like' and comment on one of my designs (my grey 'surrender' New Years card). Your encouragement kept me going. I am making the attempt to follow your lead and to engage with the design community by pushing myself to give feedback. I look forward to seeing more of your design work and receiving your feedback on my designs. Good luck with the stationery challenge. Cheers, Robin

Thanks for your comment Stacey, so much of what we do is subjective that in the end you have to go with what works for you. But it's always good to get feedback, if for no other reason than it proves someone's taken the time to look at your design :) Good luck with it!

Hi Stacey, I have noticed the Minted design community likes handlettering and flowers. Two things I don't do all that well. But if the editors are going to select a card design that is funny, flowers are not going to do it. Robin

Hi, Stacey! Thanks for your comment on my Home for the Holidays design. I really appreciate it. I've changed the color yet again... Also, I've reworked the original tree design into a holiday photo card, instead, to use in the next challenge because I think it will do better there - we'll see! :) Thanks, again!
