I'm Sandy, the owner and designer behind The Occasional Hello. I love paper, school supplies, browsing in good old-fashioned stationery stores (remember those?), the smell of freshly-sharpened pencils and the search for the perfect typeface. I have a penchant for design that is unconventional and unique and, of course, makes people happy!

hang in your home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have in
making it. Best to you, Annie
Hi Sandy, Thanks for taking the time for the nice comment on my rock star entry. I truly appreciate it and so admire your work. I am sure you will have some winners! Chris

Hi Sandy! Thank YOU for commenting on my page. Your designs are absolutely beautiful and inspiring. I'm so glad to be a part of this community and look forward to many more challenges to come! :-D
Awww! You're so sweet! My reindeer card actually didn't get picked up this year (I didn't do so well with the holiday picks). I still tried to sneak him into the party decor challenge though, haha...
Best of luck with your Foliage design... I LOVE it!
Hi Sandy, Thanks so much for the welcome and comment I appreciate it! I really admire your designs :)
Hi Sandy! I so don't want to ruin your design with my feedback. I was thinking more of a dark taupe or dark rust color, but I would say, ultimately go with your gut. You're a great designer with great color sense, so I know whatever you decide on will be fabulous! Actually, the original with the black type is kind of growing on me. :)
I tried out your suggestion on my 'gifted' design... what do you think? I'm not sure... looking at it too long! :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/60912

thanks for your comment Sandy, I have no idea what I'd change it to if Minted chooses it and doesn't buy Kewl. It was exactly what I wanted. Chances are, they won't and I use it myself!
Thanks Sandy - I love your work too. Your illustrations are adorable!
Thanks! And congrats on your Top Shelf card!
