I'm a professional in design direction and communications strategy. Stationery design is an outlet I enjoy because of the creative freedom it affords. I can plan layouts and create sketches on paper, or just go for it with a blank screen. I love the process and find it a fun challenge to bring something unique to each piece.

Thank you for purchasing one of my designs. There is a quote by Dr. Seuss that describes the out-of-the-box creativity I strive for. It says "think left and think right, and think low and think high - oh the thinks you can think up if only you try!" I love designing and hope you enjoy the end result.

Hi Wendy - Just wanted to say that it was great meeting you today! Hope to see you at the next CO meet-up. Also, congrats on your fabric pick! It's a really nice design. :)
damn, woman, your floral calendars are blowing me away!!! seriously beautiful, each one in its own right! hope you win big!
I know what you mean, I felt the same way about a border I had on one of my holiday submissions. Go with your gut, but yes, I think it looks more focused and refined without.
Best of luck to you!
Thanks from me, too, for your very helpful comment about color. It was boost to get the feeling of being on the right track. Your color management is far more sophisticated than what I was doing as a painter.
Thanks so much Wendy for the comment & help.
Thanks so much for the constructive feedback Wendy! Really appreciate your advice : )
Hi Wendy, Thanks so much for your comment! I was wondering about a white background too and wondering if that was what Cecile meant :)... will try it out tonight. Yes, definitely going to change out both fonts. I was working on a different computer and didn't have all my fonts on hand :).
I did - I just didn't have time to finish it, but figured I could save it for next year :) Thank you so much for your feedback on it. Too many challenges, not enough time! :)
oh, the bracelet idea is cute! I was just hoping the design would let the parents know that the kids would be making things, and it could get messy - not a super, girlie princess party, if that makes any sense.
hi wendy, thanks for your sweet comment on my paper princesses design! no, not necessarily - those would be some tiny little heads!
Thank you so much for all the great feedback on my america christmas card! I'm working furiously but i don't think I 'll make the cut to submit today, but at least if not, I can keep working on it for next time. I really appreciate all the great feedback. I love your work!
Hi Wendy ! thank you so much for your nice comments on my designs :) Good luck !
Aaw thanks Wendy!
Hi Wendy! Thanks so much for the great comment. I appreciated it very much. Take care and god bless you always.
Good to hear. Haven't been up to much...seems kids are taking front seat. Have a photo job coming up and hopefully will for the holidays. Haven't touched my site in awhile but need to since I do have a few new things. Take care!
Thank you so much for you kind comments, Wendy! You have some amazing wedding entries, looking forward to seeing them in the winner's circle :)
Thank you!! How are things? Adjusting to CO life? Saw your profile on the front page...congrats!
Hi Wendy! I'm new to the minted community and just submitted some designs for the wedding challenge. While I was going through and rating other submissions, I found a handful of yours that I just loved. Wanted to stop in and say hello! I too, am trying to build my portfolio and do the freelance thing much more. Hope my journey ends up as successful as yours seems to have been!
Wendy, thanks so much for your valuable input! I would love to know what you think about my changes! I dont like the flowers too small, but I think there is more balance now? (only if you have a moment) thanks so much!
...and good luck to you, too! :)
Hi Wendy! I love love love the changes you made...it totally looks like a seal now! :) Hope I wasn't too overly 'helpful'...I think it is a great design.
WoW Wendy - Fantastic showing in the second round ~ biggest congrats to you! I'll be rooting for you :o)
Thank you Wendy, that is so sweet of you and means a lot. Congratulations to you as well on your picks, well deserved!
Thanks so much Wendy - and congrats on all your picks as well!!
Wendy, thanks so much for the congrats! Right back at you with all your picks! Awesome work.
and, btw, did you see how close you and I were to Top 30?! just missed it!
and thanks for your sweet note!
Congrats on YOUR 3 picks, too!!! Corset is my favorite - so glad it got a pick! :)
Hi, Wendy! Thank you so much for your comment on my page, and congrats on all your picks! Good luck in the holiday challenge, too. I especially love your Noel Medallion and Winter Woods!
I just admire all you gals who do such beautiful florals! I'm an artist and can do a variety of techniques and mediums, but I can't seem to get ahold of the digital process for flora. It seems there is a lot of layering going on? I've drawn some and scanned and traced but the outlines are hard to work with. So frustrating ~ I need some lessons :o) Anyway, your designs always catch my eye, and I hope they catch Minted's and their customers eyes too. :o) Thx for the kind note
Thank you so much Wendy, you are so kind !
Me, too, Wendy! That's what I get for begging for an announcement...I'm scared to see the wedding party results...Good luck to us!
See? There was no need to be envious! You had such nice designs - bummer we didn't get to add to our award #... :)
You're welcome, Wendy! I just loved the design and thought it might "finish it off" : ) Best of luck in this uber competitive challenge!
Thanks for the helpful feedback on "snowy stroll"...I think I managed to smooth out the type a little bit better. :)
Thanks for the suggestions on my holiday card! Really appreciate!
You're welcome!!! It really is fabulous - it looks like it took so much work and attention to detail. Wish I had the patience and skill to come up with that. And, if you put it together quickly, I am even more impressed! :)
Hi Wendy, Thank you for your kind comment on my baby shower invitation! Best of luck to you :)
hi Wendy, thanks for you comments on my Shake, Rattle and Roll design! Ha, yes, great idea for backyard BBQ for couple's shower! LIke that!!
Yep, It's Melissa! I saw a bunch of Princess and the Pea designs too on the nursery challenge. It's kind of cool to see how different people interpret different ideas, and kind of fascinating that designers end up with the same idea inspiration also! Thanks Wendy, we'll see where my design goes, it could land in the ole flop bucket as well :) Hope you have a nice evening as well!
Hey Wendy! I just saw your darling pickles and icecream invite! I've been working on one today with the "weird food craving" idea and it also contains pickles and icecream, and just wanted to make sure that was ok with you since yours is up first! I don't want to step on any mintie toes :)
thank you for your comment on my superhero design. What do you think of it without the blue box like you suggested? i like bold (obviously) so it feels a little naked now, but it is growing on me after looking at it a little bit;)
hi Wendy, thanks for your thoughtful comments! I really appreciate it, especially when I know deadlines are looming! I have been wrestling with those two designs for a couple of days - thank God for duplicate spread in ID!! I will give your suggestions a whirl. Stay tuned and thanks again!
Wendy- Thanks for all your comments and suggestions! I am definitely going to go back to them and make some additional tweaks. I added a couple new ones last night, if you're interested in looking. Thanks again! ~Rachel
Hi Wendy! Please don't worry about it at all. We all fill our brains with so much visual data (via Pinterest, blogs, and Minted) that of course some unintentional similarities are going to show up. So again, no worries! But I do thank Leslie for her vigilance :)
Thank you Wendy for the compliment on Lunaria :) Love your work!
Thanks Wendy for the helpful feedback! I've been playing around with the colors, and so far, I haven't had much luck. I think I've come to the conclusion that it is just too childlike to be used for a wedding, so I might actually just delete it. Maybe I'll try submitting it for the art challenge that starts next week! Thanks again for the feedback, I really appreciate it! :)
Wendy, you have some wonderful submissions. Good luck in the Challenge!
Hey thanks for the comment! Hope your weekend's going good so far :)
Thanks for the comment! You are one of my favorite designers here, I absolutely love your style :-)
So funny!! A neighbor! Would love to meet you one day and swap Minted/design stories! I actually live in Henderson, am a full time mom to two little ones and sneak in design when I can. :) Let me know if you are up for coffee one of these days.
Congrats on your Editor's picks, Wendy!!!
thanks.... i was thinking the 'right' wording! Your suggestion was certainly helpful.. ^^
thanks for your comments Wendy. I'm so amazed at how many great designs you produce. You must work fast.
Thanks for the comment Wendy! See... no mention of miniature humans in this one! ;)
Hi Wendy! Thanks very much for the input on my designs. Good suggestions that I'll definitely be implementing. I really appreciate your time and suggestions. Thank you so much. :)
Hi Wendy! Thanks so very much for the feedback on my design! I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my work! I am going to play with the type a bit more to make the design better. Thanks so very much again for all of your help!
wendy, wish there was a button to click for a VERRRY helpful comment for your insight on the read of we heart baby -- thx so much! totally makes sense what you're saying that favoring simplicity/abstraction might be too risky to assume most/all/any :) customers and card recipient will read it the way we do. going to take a look at this, and thx to you and tolani for helping us to see the need for clarity. your (and all) suggestions are ALWAYS greatly appreciated!! we're new too, and just learning card by card and comment by comment. xo!
Thanks for your comment! I appreciate it!
