About Carrie ONeal

I’m a wife, mother of two teenagers, and owner of a graphic design studio near Cincinnati, Ohio. I love ice tea, cozy socks, and rainy days. With a 'less is more' approach, I strive to create designs that are traditional with a twist. I still get giddy with each and every Minted order, because it means that I get to play a small part in someone else's big moment. Thanks for visiting!

Hi Carrie thank you very much for your nice comment!! I'm trying hard to simplify my designs for the photo challenges and this was one I really had to work hard on. So I'm so glad to hear you like it:) Your entries are just amazing every single one of them! It's strange but I feel like I really "know you" just by looking at your work.. a beautiful style you have:)
