Hi Susie, I'd be happy to give you some feedback on your forum post but I may have to circle back later as I'm at the office right now. :) BUT I have been meaning to tell you that I ordered my first Minted art print last week and it was yours! I've had my eye on Thaddeus for some time now. He be perfect in our playroom! I have two other of your prints saved in my account to order in the near future too. I'm doing the newspaper & flowers one for my daughter and we're having a little boy in February so I have to wait for his stats to order the sail boat. :) And I had no idea they were all yours until I looked closely at them! I'm a true fan. lol ttys!

Hey Susie, Thanks for your comment on my quilted comfort design! I'm going to try your suggestion but won't be able to until Monday morning (out of town and just have my laptop with me) so may not be able to get any feedback before the challenge ends. Guess I will have to trust my own instincts... not always easy for me to do... haha :). Thanks again!

hey Susie, I just noticed a couple of our recent submissions are similar, your fresh squeezed and my Elegant tag, and your Lemonade journal and my Lemons and mints journal. I hadn't seen either of yours until just now. Ha even the name on our journal both has Lemon in it. How freaky.

Thanks, Susie - I really appreciate your kind remarks on my wall! That backer makes it for me - the beauty of it, is someone can go without it if they are so minimal. Not TOO kind - that design really is amazing. :)

Hi there Susie – thanks for the nice note! I felt like it was high time for a profile pic change...I was inspired by everyone's pretty faces, so I scrounged up an old one. More importantly, congratulations on your win for "Peace is Cool"! It has always been one of my favorites. :)
