About Sara Hicks Malone

Hi! I'm Sara- mom by day, designer by night. I'm a Florida-born, Southern-schooled gal that once enjoyed a creative career in NYC, including working as an art director at Martha Stewart. I now reside in Nashville with my sweet husband and awesome three and five-year olds, and couldn't imagine a better place to call home. I love being a part of the minted community!

Thank you so much for the great feedback -- feel like I'm really struggling with these cards. I see in your profile you grew up in florida -- I grew up in tampa - miss the warm sun and water so much! :)

Heh heh - my feedback's not always nice. Once I told Jen Wick that her design made me want to fling things at her out of jealousy. She won't let me live that down!

Thanks so much for your comment on my blossoming wreath design, Sara. I was thinking the same things & not liking the current version so will definitely give it a try. :) LOVE all your work!

Sara, thank you so much and big congrats to you as well with your festoon win and editor's picks! I'm bummed they didn't select your butterfly garden, because I still love that design! And I love your profile pic too. It just makes me laugh every time I see it : )

Sara just wanted to tell you that I LOVE your profile pic. It makes me smile every time I come to one of your designs while voting. I would say it may sway me a bit on scoring your designs, but you your talent stands on its own. Thanks for making me laugh :)
