My name is Monica and I am honored to be a part of this amazing community. I earned a Fine Arts degree in college but my true creative love has become graphic design. I have enjoyed designing cards since I was a little girl and, like many other Minties, I discovered a genuine passion for stationery and all things paper while planning my wedding.

Monica, what a sweet message! So kind of you to say that. Really made my day! We've come a long way since those first steps! You have really blossomed and come into your own. Your work is so recognizable. I am still exploring, ha, ha! I am a slow learner! Good luck in the challenge - loving all your designs!
Oh, and your sunshine is the CUTEST. Love it.
Haha! You are so funny. I doubt they were terrible, but we all improve with a little time here. LOVE your work now... always so unique, particularly your color palettes. :)
Monica, I'm a big fan of your work, so your compliment on this challenge meant a lot - thanks :)
Hey Monica Congrats. baby must be keeping you busy these days . but so good to see you back in action :)
Hi Monica, your advice was spot on. Thank you!
Thanks, Monica!! :)
Hi Monica, Well that design started life as Asterism and morphed into Dasha which is now one of my favorites. Lower case very effective too. Glad you like it now go buy Dasha.
Thank you so much for the nice comment Monica =)
I haven't had much time to comment lately but wanted to say your work has been so beautiful! I love it every time :)
Hi Monica, thanks for your sweet message on hooray, hooray. I can see what you mean about the lemon reading a bit somber. when you say "festive" what do you mean exactly? I will give it a try - have been struggling with this design for a couple of days. Thanks!!!!
Haha, I'm glad you got it, it's totally a take on that Seinfeld episode, I was wondering if anyone would get that;)
Thanks for the sweet comment, Monica - you made my day!
Hi, thank you so much for your sweet note! It means so much coming from you... and right back at ya, as I am a HUGE fan of your style and work :)
Thanks for your sweet comment Monica! And congrats on your holiday picks as well!
wow, that's so sweet of you to say that, monica! I guess I'm feeling a bit prolific in this challenge because I am a hopeless romantic, ha, ha! always love and admire your work and loving your submissions as well!!
how sweet are you! thank you Monica, means so much coming from you :)
I just needed a new power cord so good to go. I made some changes. if you get a chance let me what you think. Thanks so much for the advice. :) Chris
Thank you for you comment Monica. My Mac died so I have to wait to make changes but totally agree with you and Danielle. :)
Did not want to put on your design entry page - How about a more 'generic' color for voting instead of the orange? I do love it and it is so you (the bold colors - stunning!), but i think purely for voting purposes the audience might still want to see something a tiny bit more traditional with the soft green. Just a thought - and please dont do it if you dont want to :) x
Monica, it is still a great design. Good luck!
Congrats Monica on your minibook win. Such a nice design. Chris
Hi Monica! It hasn't been selected... yet? Fingers crossed. Thanks for the nice words! :)

Thanks Monica for the compliment and feedback! So appreciate it. Chris
wow thanks Mon, such a lovely compliment :)
thanks Mon, i was pulling my hair out over there!;0
Hahaha, thanks so much for your funny and sweet comment! I think I should say that more often, because I honestly sketched it as I was sketching logos for a client, and it was more promising then the logo sketches. So maybe tell yourself your finished, and boom, a few more ideas will come! : )
Thanks so much for your sweet note, Monica! I really appreciate it! Your submissions for this challenge are lovely as well! Best of luck as we round out this last week! :)
Thank you so much for your time Monica! I have 2 versions up now. Thanks again, I really appreciate it! :)
Hi Monica, thanks for the sweet comment on santa's little yelper! I was feeling in a silly mood! good luck with all of your beautiful submissions!! Carol
Aww, thanks Monica - that means a LOT to me!! I'm really pulling my hair out.
You too - your submissions are always beautiful, and so original :)
Thank you so much for the sweet comment on Peace Love Joy Monica -- I really appreciated it!! :)
You're all good, Monica. I once told Jennifer Wick that her design made me want to fling things at her out of jealousy. I actually loved your comment. In fact, when I got the email with the "you got a comment" thing and the preview of the comment, it got cut off at "I don't like" and I got all nervous that my first comment was negative and so I was extra happy to see that you liked the design, just not me. :)
Monica, i made few change based on you feedback let me know what do you think of it now..http://www.minted.com/design-rating/92352?filter=all&sort=createat
Thanks Monica. You are so sweet. I was not in NY tho. I had to back out because of taxes. Maybe next year:)

Thanks Monica! I your nice feedback really means a lot... mostly because I think your work is great too :) Cheers!!
I guess it is so much clearer to see how to make someone else's design better and tough to see in one's own. Your work is amazing.
congrats Monica for your editors picks :) awesome
Congrats Monica on your EP's !!!! So awesome, love your work !
Hey Monica, I was just going to say your comment made my day, but I see Olivia wrote the same thing! Seriously though, I so appreciate you liking my handcut Joy, because I submitted it a minute before the challenge closed, so I wasn't sure if it was finished enough. Your designs are stunning for this challenge, with my favorite being the bell one!
Thank you so much for your kind comment, Monica! It made my day. And I have to say, you're rocking this challenge yourself :)
Hi Monica! if you have a moment, pls let me know what you think about my new submission: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/85803 would really appreciate your input :)

Hey Monica ! Thank you so much for your nice comment ! You made my week ! ;) I've been trying really hard and pushing myself to be better and it feels really good when someone talented like you notices. I need to learn and improve so much more, but with kind and nice people like yourself it gets easier. Thank you, and you too keep up the awesome work !
Hi Monica, I would appreciate design-loving eyes any time! Yes, feel free to comment on any of my designs. I have been struggling with this competition, for sure! And you must be doing something [everything] right with all of your well-deserved wins, Monica! Thanks in advance!
Thanks to you too! Your comments are so appreciated! I'm not feeling really good on this competition either - its so big and I bombed the last two announcements so I'm feeling like I'm not doing well. Thank you so much for the positive feedback - and good luck - though you don't need, your work is wonderful :)
You have some awesome entries in the holiday challenge. Winners for sure!
Wow thanks Monica!!! That would be a coup!! Fingers crossed... :)
Thank you so much for the comments on the silhouettes --- I"m about to bang my head on my desk i've been so frustrated with it. I'll give those changes a try -THANK YOU!! :)
hi Monica, made few changes based on your feedback on my " wall art" holiday business cards....if you get a moment let know what do you think of it now .. :) thanks again
Thank you so much for the feedback on the evergreen Monica -- I've been stewing on it for a week! and just can't make up my mind. :)
Thanks so much Monica for your suggestions on my "wall Art". i will work on that :)
Thanks so much for your congrats Monica! It totally made my night (and all the other submissions worth my while) Gotta keep at it don't you? : )
Thanks so much Monica :)
I emailed Minted just to be sure - feels weird to enter it twice when it looks the same but I think it's a separate category too
