My training is in marketing and merchandising but my love has always been graphic design: beautiful papers, inks, illustrations, and fonts all gathered together to celebrate life's events and non-events.

Susan, thanks so much for the sweet comment. It made my day :)
thanks so much for the nice comment Susan - I doubt it will get picked, but I had so much fun writing it, I had to do it :)
Thanks for your comment, Susan. I agree that "wish" should be "wishing" too. I missed it in the photo card challenge though. Doh! : )
Thanks! :) :) :)
Thanks so much, Susan! I've tweaked the spacing on my Three Cheers design, hopefully, it looks better! Thanks, again. :)
Hi Susan, just wanted to say WOW. I love all of your holiday submissions, great job! You are good.
Thank you so much for your sweet comment on "Festoon." I love your work, Susan! You made my day! Best of luck to you, I have no doubt you are going to rack up some more holiday wins :)
You're so funny Susan! I just made a new comment on your Holly design. Which I love. I hope the end of your trip was as wonderful as the beginning! Miss you too!!
Yes it was a great event sure is nice to see how supportive our community is . Can I request a friend request to your facebook link
Thanks a lot I had such a great day that day the still and landing are all part of the series.
Hi Susan! hahaha, yep, that was me! If you have a minute, I'd love your feedback on this design: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/167581 thank you!
thanks so much Susan. i was making it smaller already HAHA. thank you
Hi Susan, So glad I got a chance to visit with you in person. I hope you enjoyed your visit to San Francisco.
Hmmm...I don't think I was the one with a tape measure around my neck in a photo…Though I also have a fondness for all around craft loving folks. I'm so looking forward to meeting you!
Thanks for the sweet note, Susan! You inspire me so very much! And so sorry I am a bit late in congratulating you on BLACK status. Wow! HUGE congrats and so well-deserved :)
Hey there, Susan. I'm enjoying your holiday cards! Italian Leather loving puppy is my personal favorite. I was just looking at some of your other cards and noticed your "be wonder full" card. I actually have one that has "be wonder filled" and had no idea until now about your card. I think yours was up first? I love your card. Understated, elegant, minimal…I went in a big, bold, super hero direction, so it certainly has a different feel, but that phrase isn't so common. For that reason, If you'd like, I'd be happy to take mine down, since it looks like you were first to post. Incidentally, I like "full" instead of "filled"…totally had a face palm moment when I saw that. I am continually learning to not make things more complicated than they need to be!
Congrats on your BC card wins!
Hi Susan, thanks so much for your lovely message. Yes my first win does feel so good and it came on a really bad day while I was helping out a former boss (powerful designer in the branding field) with a PowerPoint template design and he like nothing. As soon as I get pass this project I can start on the holiday cards! Cheers, Robin
Thanks Susan ... you've always been supportive of my work. Love all your submissions in the Milestones & Holiday Challenge!
Aha. Well I'm glad you resubmitted it. I think it's sweet and cheery!
Sorry, Susan, I'm nor sure what you're trying to ask my help with. Can you explain?
Thanks, Susan! Ha - yes, I will still be sticking to simple illustrations and type, I think! ;)
Wahoo! Congrats on your CMYK accomplishment, Susan!! I'm a big fan. :)
Congratulations! You're big-time now! Well-deserved. :)
Congrats on K, I knew you were going to be there with your merry card I assume. SO great and classic.
Congrats on being promoted to the highest in the CMYK program ... you're an amazing talent!
Hi Susan! Thanks for letting me know about the font. Good use of resources and it fits the cute boat illustration well! Nicely done!
Carol, will you look at my edit for "cake toppers" (just did it so right up front place). Stronger colors from former pastels. Better or worse?
hi susan, here's the revised design. Better or worse: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/157615?filter=all&sort=createat
hi Susan, thanks for the kind comment on storybook design. never fear, I am working on the changes that everyone suggested and the whole cake stand is out! I think it's working much better that way. please stay tuned! I value your opinion very much!
First its without the '
Hi susan! Just a weird suggestion - maybe link the tiny 'YEAH!' Banner to touch the bucket on it's left just for that unexpected afterthought. But it's JusT a suggestion. I really like the design. Borders fine as is :)
Yes, I think maybe even a bit smaller, yet. It's simply adorable!
Have a great weekend!
Thank you for your kind wishes :)
thank you Susan, what do you think now : http://www.minted.com/design-rating/150909 (made the text grey as well)
Hi Susan,I just wanted to say that I totally love your work! It's fresh,modern & playful at the same time & truly inspirational :) I hope to see more of it in the future. Good Luck for everything!
Susan, thank you for the kind comment! I'm excited (and surprised) by second place… and of course also excited about our baby boy. :)
I'm bummed about missing NSS this year, but hopefully I'll back in 2015 and you are too!
Hi Susan, thanks so much for your comment. That's too funny. You are catching up! I love your work. Look forward to seeing it every challenge :)
Thank you Susan! I am definitely excited and looking forward to submitting more designs!
awww - thanks, Susan!!! :)
Susan, thanks for your lovely comment on my Botanical Frame. A nice comment from such a talented and successful Mintie makes my day!
Ha, thanks for the tip Susan! It is beautiful... the design and the font. :)
I like your new crop better, but I think it might have more interest if you kept him at an angle, just try to imagine a tic-tac-toe grid over the cropped space, and try putting the baby's eyes in the approximate spot where the top and right grid-lines cross. And don't worry to much about cutting off a little of his head. I hope that makes sense!
Hi Susan! You're welcome, I'm glad to help :) Good luck to you and have a great year :)
Thank you for the congratulatory note, and congrats to you too! :) Love your Spot On design!!
Haha...yes, incredibly fun! Even when I'm at my regular job I want to be working on Minted stuff;) Truly love everything you design!
No worries, Susan! Don't even give it a 2nd thought. Good luck in the business card challenge and happy holidays!
Awe thanks Susan. I totally wish I did design it :)
Hi, Susan! I just wanted to say I love your "Ours Too" new year card. I keep seeing it today, and it's so perfectly elegant!
I can't leave a comment on your design Our Wedding right now because of some glitch, but wanted to say I love your placement of "our" :)
It may work in faux gold but it may be too confusing.
Love your work so much, Susan! Thanks so much for your generous comment on my design - you made my day! :)
Thank you so much for you feedback.. I really appreciated!
Thanks so much for your sweet comment! I have long admired your talent especially with the minimalist designs!
when you get the time please se the reworked design thanks http://www.minted.com/design-rating/114645
I think the wording on "awesome baby" sounds just fine - I was not confused. :)
Sorry to harass you, Susan!!! :)
Maybe try a lower case "a?" Just a thought...
Hey, thx so much for your comment on bold baby. I tried the slab and seemed like too much with business penmanship, so I fussed with the gradient again... Take a look and let me know what u think if u get a free minute.
final tweaking and adjustments http://www.minted.com/design-rating/114179 thanks

Thanks so much for your critique of my Boldcuts design Susan. Totally hear what you're saying, I'm not 100% happy with it yet but will have a play around with the spacing. Love your work!
Thank you for taking the time to critique my "grace" submission - I appreciate it.. I created an option C (sans banner) per your recommendation!
Thank you Susan!!
Thank you, Susan! And it's only a pleasure :)
Thanks so much Susan!!!

Hi Susan, thanks for your generous words regarding my 'space fill it with a message' stationery design, I appreciate your feedback and that you took the extra time to give it. Cheers, Robin
Thank you so much for all the helpful feedback! :)

Thank you for your kind comment, Susan. It made my day :)
Susan, you are too nice to me... thank you! And a late congratulations on your CMYK win! You rock.
thank you Susan, appreciate you leaving a comment anyway!
Thank you for the really sweet comment on going country! You have been knocking them out of the park too! :)
Well aren't you sweet! Thank you so much for the kind comment - and right back at-cha! Now we get to play the waiting game...
Hi Susan! Thanks for the comment! It was great meeting you too – and so nice having someone to hang with!
Thanks, Susan, for the nice wishes. Appreciate it so much. Chris
Thanks for your sweet comment! I am trying really hard on figuring out the layout on that one still. It's kind of hard to corporate text within the illustration.
Thanks so much for your super nice comment this morning, Susan - you made my day! (which I needed because it was off to a bad start!) I'm so happy that design is being shown on the home page somewhere - I see birth announcements now. I learned recently that we all see different versions of the homepage at different times. Wacky! Thank you so much! btw - I am reminded how cool your "the porch" party decor is when I came here to your page - that was totally one of my favorites. Best of luck in the current challenges!
Ha! They ARE kind of coordinated... but I don't think too similar... do you?
Thanks for your kind note, Susan! Us minimalists have to stick together! ;-)
Hi Susan! I'm glad my comment made your day - you have such a wonderful design style and I'm happy to see your collection growing - you deserve it!! : )
