Hi Amy, I’m laughing again about that 2 steps into the litter box comment. I can relate, had a cat all through the college, found him at my mailbox on state line road in KC, and he had the worst litter box manners and that brought back memories. Mostly with going #1. We’re using our dog’s poop bags with our kittens stuff because they just go all the time and it’s potent. Our dog too is a terrier mix. Jack Russell and Beagle. She’s amazing! Our oldest cat, Adja, is 16 as well and is going strong despite having that dreaded thyroid condition for a couple of years now but it’s a very low grade so no real effects (yet!). Her sister developed diabetes and eventually succumbed to that last year and that was super hard to manage (one of the reasons I didn’t do much on Minted at the time). My wife plays in the Peoria Symphony though she nearly won a slot in the KC Symphony right after her UMKC stint and had she gotten that we would be in KC right now. Peoria is a nice regional outfit but it’s almost an hour away and really taxing on the rehearsals and performances but she enjoys it. I used to catch more of the concerts but the Harry Potter one this weekend is the most popular and everyone gets into it. Hey I wanted ask you - do you know Andy Goldsworthy, the artist/ sculptor? I’ve always known his work and got really excited about that wall he was creating at the Nelson Atkins which I just read is almost coming to an end. Wondered if it caught your attention. That museum is quite something! Ok, you have a great day, catch you later!

Hey there, Amy :) How’s it going? Fall settling in yet in Lawrence? Thanks for your like. I managed to squeeze in one more entry. Even if it doesn’t bode well, I enjoyed the process and maybe it’ll open up to something else. And thanks for your note the other day - I’m really sorry to hear about your recent loss of your dogs. That’s what happened to us - having lost one of our oldest cats just over a year ago. Never easy though having the new little guys has helped ease the loss. They are a handful and lots of fun. What kind of dog did you get by the way? The kids can’t get enough of the kittens though the litter box duty has fallen mostly to me as I predicted and it’s never ending. Our dog too loves them and got in sync with them right away. They play and entertain each other. Our other older cat, Adja, (a sister to the one we loss) is having a hard time adjusting to Taco and Jinx but it’s getting a bit better. My kids are doing well-psyched for Halloween and this weekend’s Harry Potter Symphony concert with movie (#2). My wife is performing (cello). Lots of great artwork in the challenge (I’ve plunked down just over 200 votes so I need to get busy and do some more). Best always, Eric

Hi Amy, hope you are well! I'm just starting to come up for air as it were and check out what's going on with the recent design challenges. Hardly a dull moment on Minted. Thanks for all your support and comments - really appreciate hearing from you. I scrambled on PB and the Save the Date entries but ya never know what catches their eye. Did you get your West Elm stuff up and running? Sorry I didn't get back earlier on your other note, so many summer things just cascading over each other (plus we got two new kittens :) ! I bet Claire was excited to have that first win in her pocket - she's talented. And I was hoping you'd have some pieces for PB Challenge and you didn't disappoint! I suppose it'll be a few months before we find out and I'll forget about it until then but nevertheless, crossing my fingers. Best wishes! Eric

Oh good, I’m glad to know all is okay with you. Ditto on our family - apparently, through that area around KC, it went aloft and into to a reorganization mode, so lots of circulation but no touch down. I can’t believe the daily onslaught of these twisters but apparently people are taking protection because lives lost has been minimal though any loss is terrible. And just putting things back together with all the scars of the tornado damage lingering around for months or years changes things. We’ve had some threatening systems and tornadoes up here too but nothing too close to us yet. Stay safe! Looking forward to your West Elm splash and congrats to your niece as well!

Hey Amy, I was thinking about you last night during that horrific tornado. Are you okay, friends & family? We were keeping a watchful eye because my in-laws live in Mission and my wife’s uncle in Parkville. I hope it’s not on repeat for tonight!!! I hope everything is ok.

Hey Amy, sorry not to get back to you sooner-hope you’re having a nice weekend so far. Wow, you hit the jackpot - 26 buys from one customer, one print? Which one(s)? That nuts but way cool. Maybe to resell in a local store? It bugs me too that the sale notice doesn’t mention size. But extra Xmas spending money for sure, eh? You were asking about the graphic design projects - yes, I use Adobe Illustrator. an iPad and Procreate too, not so much Photoshop. It’s really why I first thought about joining Minted years ago but the Challenge at the time was either Wedding or Baby related and I just didn’t have the imagination for those topics. I felt my style wasn’t relevant at the time or I wasn’t caught up on trends. Fonts and Type a part of that. I wish I could do more but it takes a lot for me just to make one or two cards and if you win it’s time consuming getting the project polished off for Minted. I guess you can start small and see where it goes. You asked about my kids - you’re right, son and daughter. They’re twins :) They just turned 9 on September 9th (2009)! Fun birthdate. He’s finally recovered from his ordeal but they found a couple of small hernias while in there so he’ll have to go back for another similar type of non-invasive surgery. I couldn’t believe the amount of entries for the West Elm challenge - it’s exciting. Ok, talk with you later. Have a good one!

Hi Amy, thanks for the note and likes. Truly a big fan of yours - glad you "cranked" out some art - really amazing compositions. I wish I can just like them all in one setting, got kind of tired going back & forth on the browser but got a few in. I mentioned to Minted long ago to allow users to stay on one artist page to view several works of art at once and not be driven to other parts of the website...oh well. That's really cool your niece is getting involved. I'll look for her works. Family talent! I was under crunch time myself this morning - just as previous challenges, had something come up that kept me sidelined but not complaining, life has it's own say most times - my son had an urgent appendectomy Monday morning, a Sunday night all-nighter included, surgery. It went fine and just getting back on his feet and to normal routines. Glad to keep in touch - good luck, I'm seeing some picks for you for sure :)

Hi Amy! Sorry for not getting back sooner. Glad to hear things are going well for you. The art in the park sounds terrific - I'm sure it's a big undertaking but you got the stuff for it. I'm trying to sort through this current PB Challenge and get something going....we'll see...what do you do to get locked in and get the creative juices going? I kind of went back to my first "win" of that abstract photograph and exploring that idea further - maybe something will come of it that I can build on. Are you taking up the PB Challenge? Hope so :)

Hi Amy, yeah, I've been rather aloof here on Minted this past year but hope I can get my footing for the next. So many things sideswiped me beyond my control - family tragedies, older pets & their care, house projects, my busy family, you name it. A lot of it ran right into the Challenges and I had no way to put things together other than a few photos and cards. Just seemed like an endless drip of struggle & new reality and routines. It was nice to look at some wonderful artwork here and there as a way to cope. But how are you and things back in Lawrence/KC? Glad to see you're still submitting work and getting some wins, well deserved. Again, Congrats! Thanks for reaching out and staying in touch. My kids are turning 9 tomorrow so it's a birthday bonanza weekend. Catch up with you later - Eric

Hello Amy, a quick thank you for your support and appreciation of my Happy Couple entry in the card contest - much appreciated. I do love your paintings - why not pop one on a tshirt for the current contest? I've put 2 in for that - but generally I don't wear them with designs on, however I would be tempted if there was something more abstract in the shops :)

Hey Amy, just wanted to say thanks for all the support! When do you think they'll share the results? Usually takes quite a few weeks and with more than 5,000 entires - yikes! Hope Minted opens up another West Elm Challenge which should around the corner - I'm sure you'll be ready for that one as well :)

Hi Amy, thanks for taking a look at my latest entries and the likes as well. You had asked about spray paint for that one work, I hadn't considered how it might look like spray paint and I had to think back to how I developed the work but it's actually a macro photo of lines on a piece of paper with some heavy digital tweaking that ended up looking like a painting so I went with it...I wasn't going to do anything with it at first but as the deadline got closer I decided what the heck. Love your pieces. Hope you get some awesome results :)

Hi again, Amy. Sorry not to get back with you, got swept up with the weekend/family stuff. Are you working on new paintings, any shows coming up? To answer your question...Phase 2 of greeting card copy is just creating graphics for first round copy submissions or creating an entire card with copy/graphics. Hope to nail something down. Have a great day!

Wow, just a day to get it ready?! Crazy! I bet you were glad to have someone there to help it along in a quick turnaround. I probably don't have the desired set up to DIY the paintings - I do have a lightbox and some lights. I'd have to experiment with it but may end up having to use someone in the area to make the shot. So, with as many paintings as you have I bet the cost would add up just to stock your Minted store. I noticed you don't have anything currently for sale on you store....personal choice or too much to aim for? I'm curious how that might work out for me as an outlet...So, yes, the greeting card copy. I've always enjoyed graphic design but feel quite rusty about it these days. The fine art seems to call out to me more but I used to make my own christmas cards and I was initially drawn to Minted because of the card challenges. I've had some success with graphic design but I can't seem to pin down anything yet for the card challenges. I have never tried copy and it was not easy to come up with stuff and then you get in a zone and it's hard to stop. Let's see if any of them catch Minted's eye. I'm trying to work on the Phase 2 design aspect now but not moving as fast as I wanted to with it.
