Hi! My name is Karidy (a combination of the names Kari and Dee), and since early childhood, I've had a passion for art and creativity. I graduated with a BA in graphic design from Western Washington University, and I feel so blessed to be a part of the minted community. When I'm not designing, you'll find me baking or decorating while hanging out with my husband, two beautiful daughters, and big black cat at our home on "Walker Hill".

Hi Karridy. Just noticed you used the name "Madeline" on your garden design. Strangely, I also used the same name for my garden design. Anyway, just wanted to let you know it was a total coincidence- I had sketched my design over a week ago, but just had time to work on it tonight. If it weren't so late I would change it, but I'm too tired. BTW- I love your designs! Portia
Yep. Love your designs! Congrats on your mini book win!
Congrats on your mini book!! I love your illustrations, they are so perfect! That Camp Nathaniel is just adorable :)
