Hi Sara, I just wanted to reach out to you because I just came across your Captured design... I hadn't seen it before and there are some similarities with my Penned design, which was totally accidental! Anyway, love all your holiday submissions... they're so fresh and modern!

Sara, You are one the designers whose work I always love so it meant a lot to me to read your kind comments. I haven't dared look at the holiday entries except when I submitted so anxious to see yours. Let's hope we both get some winners/picks.

Aww, so glad my comment made your day! And thanks so much for your kind words! Submitting a non-photo version of my design is a great idea. Thank you for the helpful feedback! Looking forward to seeing more of your designs in the future too. :-)

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!

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 : )
