Luckily, design is my job but doesn't (usually) feel like work. I am a freelance graphic designer and I also enjoy painting, sewing, yoga, and being near the beach. I think fine paper & good typography are like warm apple pie & vanilla ice cream, but my 3 kids don't see the connection! Maybe one day they will love good design as much as dessert.

The templates should be in the submission folder. I use Illustrator so I see mine under A7 Square Templates > AI > Illustrator > Die-Cut Shapes. Hope that helps!
Thank you so much, Taleen. I scan at Kinko's.
Hi Taleen, I changed the font and am wondering if you could take a look. Should i go with the original Anodyne or this fun one I found? Thanks again for your time. Chris
Taleen, thanks so much for your feedback on my frogs. I will work on the fonts to simplify.
Awe thanks so much Taleen. I am your biggest fan. I was so happy to see your holiday submissions. I have missed your work. I hope you are feeling better and likes don't mean anything these days :) Lol. I'll be pulling for you.
Thank you for your sweet comment, Taleen! I love all of your work and the variety of designs you come up with! :)
Thank you so much! I am a fan of her work ! (:
Thank you for your helpful suggestion on my The Sweetest Floral design. I took your advice and I feel like the layout you suggested works a lot better. By the way I'm a big fan of your work! Thanks again :)
Thank you so so much for your comment on Birds and the Bees Taleen. I think all of your work is so amazing so I am so incredibly flattered; I feel like I'm kind of trying to find my style and stumbling a bit, so I really appreciate it, :)
Wow Taleen, what a compliment. So much appreciated. Reaaally needed that right now! Thank you! Phrosné
Thanks so much for your congratulatory note, Taleen! I really appreciate it. I'm so excited, and little in shock. :)
Hi Taleen, Thanks so much for the feedback on my reindeer games design. I think I prefer the contrast as well but it still seemed a little unbalanced to me.. I added it to the main header and took your suggestion to justify that line.. Would love your thoughts on the changes. Thanks so much : )
Hi, Taleen! Thank you so much for your nice comment on my "Cocktail Party" design. I really love your design aesthetic and appreciate your input! :)
Thanks for your comment on Chilling Chalk! It was one of those designs that I'd been staring at too long, and I couldn't tell if it was working or if it was a hot mess :)
Thank you Taleen! I'm usually the one behind the camera and always cringe at the thought of profile photos ha! I love your work, your holiday designs being no exception, and am wishing you lots of luck in the 2nd round! :)
Thanks for the note, Taleen. I think they are different enough. No worries, and good luck! :)
Thank you so much for the note! Congrats on your wins too - Your designs are always amazing - I would buy them all!! :)
THanks for your note. I think the type looks great! I hope i didn't confuse you... i know how it is when u look too long at your own work. Definitely keep it without the frame (no frame:)!!
Here's the link http://www.minted.com/design-rating/60746
Thanks so much for yuor feedback Taleen. I went back to the handlettering and also added a thin black fram to the photo. Please let me know what you think if you get a chance. Thanks for all your help! Love yuor work so really trust your opinion!! :)
Hi Taleen, Here is the link to my festive garden design... http://www.minted.com/design-rating/60101
Hi Taleen, I've made some changes to my festive garden design. Would you mind taking a look? Did I ruin it? (Ha ha) Please be honest! Thank you!! Monica :)
Congrats on your latest wins!! You are really raking them in...great work!
Thanks so much for your message Taleen. It means a lot coming from you. You are a brilliant talent and I am a huge fan of your work. Can't wait to see more of your holiday submissions.
Hi Taleen, Thanks for your feedback last week on my Festive Garden design! I attempted to refine "Joy" and made some color changes. Please let me know what you think if you get a minute. Thanks! :)
Thanks, Taleen!! I was super excited about it myself!!! :)
Thanks again-will definitely keep messing with the fonts. For some reason it's a struggle on this design!
Thanks for your suggestion on my flower design! I'm unsure if we can have designs without names though? The submission packet said to allow for names about 20 characters, so I assumed that meant it had to have something able to be personalized?
Hi Taleen! Sorry for not replying sooner - thank you so much for the comment on my profile. :) Congrats to you as well on all of your wins and picks - you have been racking up the awards lately! I am in awe at how you are able to submit so many designs each challenge and they are all gorgeous! Keep it up - great stuff :)
Hi, Taleen! Nice to meet you. Wow, busy mom of 3 and just doing some really wonderful design work in all these challenges! Yup, there do seem to be a lot of believers in the minted community, really encouraging. Hope you had a great Easter!
You are very sweet, but I don't think it's too similar. feel free to leave it in the challenge. thanks for the message though. happy easter!
congrats on all the wins! great stuff!
Thanks, you too. Your store is growing leaps and bounds very quickly :)
Congrats on all of your recent picks! :)
Thanks so much for your comment - I love ALL of your work!!! :)
thanks so much taleen, same to you!!!
congrats on all your recent pics. You're awesome.
Congrats on all of your Moving Announcement Editor's Picks. That is awesome. Great up the great work! :)
Of course Taleen! Love bebe birds. You do great work :) Thanks for the compliment on the pic - thought maybe clients might not want to see my goofy face look. :-P
Thank you so much! It means a lot to me that you took the time to read the story of my ballerina paintings. You do amazing work so I am honored that you like them and liked my blog - Thanks so much :)
Hello Taleen, thank you so much for your sweet comment. I think you are super talented!
Thank you so much! You made my night;)
Congrats on your win Tal!!!
Hi Taleen! You should have received an email with the Editor's Picks. As for the winners, you can view those under the "winners" tab/link on the website. :o)
Thanks for your super nice comment on My Type...I'm laughing right now at the fact that it's "come a long way" - sadly, most of my designs do! :) And, the ones that get picked (of mine) usually don't have an evolution (I actually get them nostly right the first time)...so it doesn't bode well for this one! But I'll keep my fingers crossed! :) Good luck on all yours, too - you have some nice ones! (sorry for the novel...)
Thanks for your comment on My Type - great minds think alike! I had Buttermilk in there, and may add it back - I wasn't thrilled with having two of some fonts, but don't have enough different skinny ones! I see you have some lower case, too, which I had originally but decided to keep it all caps. Anyway, I may change out some fonts, but doubt my layout will change much from this. Feel free to submit yours, too!
Thanks for the nice comment, Taleen! It made my day! Congrats on your Editor's Pick, and good luck in this stationery challenge. All of your designs are amazing!
Hi!!! I totally remember, how are you? looks like you won, with some great designs!! congrats on those, thanks for your comments on Corbel. Great to hear from you!
Thank your for your advice taleen. I decided to scale back and go w/o the tangerines for a more simplified/uncluttered design. BTW - I love your clean style!
