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.

Hi Monica, Remember when you took some time off to take a class a few years back? Were you enrolled in school or something online? I need to learn more. Thanks
Hi Monica thank you very much for the likes!! I love your work…so many beautiful entries you have!
Thanks for your nice comment, Monica! And so nice to see your lovely entries in the holiday challenges. Hope all is well!
Thanks for your feedback Monica, I really value your opinion. Something about my just JOY does seem a little off balance, so I may try playing around with the name a bit more like you mentioned originally. Thanks again!
Monica, thanks so much. It is so nice to see you back with such beautiful entries!!! We missed you.
Hi there Monica I just wanted to say thanks for the poll. All the best in the challenges. I love the way you do your design it has a subtle but yet a beautiful presence.
Hi Monica, I had a 2nd look at your design,you could also go with the teal/aqua color...just a thought :)
Thank you for your sweet note Monica,it's a pleasure :) I absolutely loved all of your submissions,your style is so unique that I instantly know it's your's even without looking at your name :) Good luck in the Holiday challenge. P.S: sorry for the late reply,I had Spring Break going on for my kiddos,so was busy keeping them busy & spring cleaning ;)
you are so lovely and generous.
hi monica, thanks so much for commenting on my "one of their own" design. I was actually thinking of killing that one because it wasn't strong. I will give it more thought. thanks for commenting though, it gives me reason to try harder!
Thank you,thank you for your super awesome comments on my travel inspired designs,means so much :) As always your work is so sweet, just as you are :)

Awww, thank you for the sweet comment! I was nervous about that submission... since it's not the usual Minted look. I appreciate the vote of confidence. :)
Hi Monica, So fun to have you back in the game and especially that you like one of my designs. Thanks for always being such a great community member.
Thankyou so much Monica for being so supportive in thus challenge. I'm sure you agree that sometimes you get stuck on a particular design moment & can't seem to think beyond it...I was going through that! Thanks once again for being super helpful!

Thank you for your suggestions for my Watercolor Chevron design! I've been back and forth with the "and," and I will tweak the white spaces. Super helpful, thank you!

Aw Monica, thank you for the nice compliment. I keep looking for you and hope your beautiful child will let you have some free time soon to do your killer designs.

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 so much Monica! You have some amazing entries in the stationery challenge. Looks like your mojo is back :)
aaw same to you Mon. You know I love your designs too :) And super congrats to you too, so honored to be there next to you ;)
Monica! congrats on your top 20!! you were so worried you got nothing.. but i knew you deserved a win;)

Congrats on your fabulous wins! :)
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 for the kind message, Monica! Congrats to you, as well! :)
Thank you so much, Monica, and congrats to you too ! You are an inspiration, cheers !
