So so sorry for the late reply! I thought I had replied to you. I so appreciate all the wonderful words, can't thank enough! You're a wonderful soul inside out, xoxo.
Hi Dawn, thank you so much for your comment on my "Papercut Village" entry. Your feedbacks were very helpful! Congrats on your wins too!
Thank you Dawn for your sweet comments! Congrats to YOU - on all of your wins! They are each so great! Love them all! yay!
Hello Dawn! Thank you so much for all your critiques. It definitely helped me with one of the win on the Every Mother Challenge! Congrats to you too on the Critique Award, you deserved it. I can't thank you enough :)
Dawn, what a well deserved "congrats" on the Critique Award. I only regret that I didn't take the time to also commend your fine work. So happy you've been recognized Dawn and thanks for all your help.
Dawn, Congratulations on the Critique Award! Thank you for the like on "our baby love"...really appreciate it! Love your work...good luck in the challenge! Thanks again.
Congratulations on the Critique Award Dawn!! Thank you for the like, and the feedback that you have provided. Your comments are always welcome and very helpful! Best of luck!
Yayy Dawn! Congrats on getting the Critique Award! Well deserved and I can't thank you enough on all the helpful feedback you had given me in the Baby Shower Challenge! :)
Thanks so much Dawn for your sweet comment on my Autumn Bliss entry. Your amazing! Your encouragement means the world to me :) Have a lovely day
You are so incredible Dawn. A design that was struggling at the start became so much better with your help. After several more of my tweaks and given up for dead you again gave me good advice and encouraged me to keep going. It's better because of you and I feel so much better about the design no matter what happens. Thanks so much.
Hi Dawn! Thank you so much for your help on "gilded swans". I think your feedback really has helped the design and I appreciate your eye on this one! :) Good luck to you in the challenge! You have such great submissions!
AHHH NOOOO DAWNN!!!! I SWEAR I've had this llama design for weeks!! My sister is law is pregnant and I talked to her over Christmas about what kind of shower she would want, and I randomly suggested llamas and she loved it. I promise I didn't copy you!! And I do love your llama-- so cute and fluffy ! I'm rooting for both of us!!
Ha on the leaves. Thanks as always for your suggestions, Dawn! I was super last minute with these, so your great eye is very appreciated! x
Hi Dawn! Thanks so much for your advice (and the like) on my "Simple Sip and See" … it's silly, but I got attached to my little icons and I didn't really want to get rid of them. BUT I found them a new home, and I think this design really does look much better without them. Such an eye for design – and the capability of just saying "lose it" –hahaha. Much appreciated, have a great week.
Thank you so much for your feedback on my submission Dawn! I've altered the design according to your suggestion and I think it looks much better! Best of luck to you in the challenge too!
Thank you so much for the like Dawn! Your designs are wonderful. Wish you best of luck in the coming challenges!:-) Benita
You're the best Dawn. Thanks for the like on my Baby Portrait. And now I'm hating the stroller one but you've been such a help. Hugs
Thanks for your feedback on Motherlove. I'm still learning so much with design, it's all just experience for me at this point until I can get to the level (hopefully) of designers like you. Good luck in the challenge!
dawn thanks for your comments; if you have a chance please check out my poll with background color ideas ;) https://www.minted.com/design-rating/750323
Thanks for your helpful and complimentary comments on my design, Dawn. Best wishes to you in the challenge!
Thanks so much for your feedback, Dawn! I LOVED your idea about making the quote in the baby shower invitation a quote from the older sibling-to-be. Super cute and clever. Will work on making the text more readable. Thanks again!
Thanks Dawn for your feedback! Hopefully the "grass" reads better now ;) !
Hi Dawn thank you so much for your great suggestions, I really appreciate it. I have made some changes and started a poll but I think I need to still work on it lol! Thanks again and have a great night :)
Such a sweet thing to say, thank you dawn!
Dawn Dawn Dawn! Thank you once again for your awesome feedback. Always so helpful and I truly appreciate your critiques!
I'm giggling. Do you even recognize it? And I'm not done yet...shoot me. Please. BTW these pun things never seem to win but learning a ton.
Dear Miss Genius, I had tried landscape and abandoned it. When you suggested I kept plugging away at it and I think it's better. Please take a look when you have a minute. hugs
Hi Dawn, thank you for your nice comment!...I make the leaves slightly smaller, i think it's look better now, thank you!
Thank you for the like on "baby's room"..so appreciative. It is always so hard 'not to fiddle' until the end..will try :) All the best!
I'm the one who owes a thank you Dawn. Always so happy to have your help. Hugs
Please check it out w/out the lines and bigger font. I think I agree with you. Better?
Hi Dawn, your first comment made me laugh because I spent hours moving all the text and the ticket around. The ticket has so much weight it was hard to find the right blend. So after your advice I made the font bigger, bolder, tried the lines in red, the text in red and so it goes. I'm really unsure about the lines at all but have gotten a few likes as is. OK smarty pants, what do you think? xx
Thanks for the note, Dawn. You're the best :)
Thank you Dawn :) for the nice feedback on the little tigers-Rain forest :D I'm already happy it's much better without leaves ! I'll look forward to seeing your beautiful work on BabtShower ,Good Luck xx
Thank you so much for your feedback on "Finally Home"! It definitely helped improve the design and tie it all together. So so appreciate it!
Dawn once again thank you for more feedback on "Woodland Bunny"! You are so helpful with your critiques and I really thank you for that. Just made more changes and also added a few more elements in the floral/leaves at the bottom half. My only thing I keep wondering is my font choice for "Shower". I do hate using too many font styles so I'm wondering if it doesn't feel connected? I didn't want to use script for both Baby Shower. Anyway thank you again! xx
Thanks so much for your helpful feedback on my "Oui Oui, Bebe" shower invitation, Dawn. I totally see what you mean & updated a new version today. I appreciate your insight! Thanks again. :)
Hi Dawn thank you so much! Good eye! I just made your suggested changes and couldn't agree more! I really appreciate your critique on my "Woodland Bunny"! Best of luck to you in the challenge. ~ Paula :)
Hi Dawn, Thank you so much for your super helpful feedback :) I will take all the leaves off and play around with them a bit.Your birth announcement entries so fantastic ! xx
Thanks Dawn, your suggestions were spot on as always & much appreciated :)
Dawn!!! Thank you for your super sweet comment - you totally made my day :) I can't believe that design had your daughter's name AND birthday!!! What are the odds!!!??
Thanks for the feed back! I appreciate it. This is my first time trying out a Minted Challenge. Love your work!
Thanks for the suggestion about removing that extra black line overlaying the photo in my "sunshine hello" design, Dawn! You were totally right :D Good luck in the challenge! Beautiful entries as always :)
Hi Dawn, thanks so much for the helpful feedback as always! You have some beautiful entries, good luck!
Thank you so much for the likes, Dawn...so appreciative. Your entries are great this challenge..all the best!
Hi Dawn! Thanks so much for all the brilliant suggestions. I have played around with all the designs as per your suggestion and you were right all the time :) I truly appreciate you taking the time to like and leave feedbacks on my entries, this is my first!!
Thank you for your sweet comments Dawn! Love your entries as well. Hopefully will see you again at NSS this year?? Cheers! ~
Hi Dawn! Thanks for the great suggestions-- I edited the smartest baby and changed a few colors. Please let me know what you think if you have time :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/742749
Hi Dawn, Your suggestion, as always, was a good one. I played around w/all the usual plainer scripts (thirst, melody lane, rolling pen) but think this one best/better? I wanted it convey it sense of joy too. What do you think? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/742695
Dawn, I'm very sad to learn about Magnet. He is soo adorable in the photo, almost like a stuffed animal! I'm sure you miss him very much and from the photo I can tell he was very well loved and had a fantastic life. I hope you and your family are doing well and please let me know if you need anything!
Thank you so much for the like, Dawn! Bold Entrance is really nice... best of luck!
Haha! Thanks, Dawn! Mugshot hadn't even crossed my mind! I was totally thinking those board I see all over Instagram. I can see it now, though!
Dawn! So glad you liked my watercolor, it took me forever to do :) Also, I think your advice is rubbing off on me--- I originally had gray text but changed it at the last minute and last night I thought the picture need a frame because it was being absorbed into the watercolor. Thank you for your suggestions! ALSO-- I finally got your Christmas card in the mail-- we have had some delivery issues over here in NC-- and how cute is your daughter??? I had to hide the card from my daughter as she had those same panda shoes, but we lost them and if she saw them in the card I was afraid she would demand I go buy them again, haha. Hope you are having a great new year and take care :)
Hi Dawn , Thank you again for the like and soo sweet&helpful feedback on my story :)You always see the things I didn't see on my work that help me a lot to change it and make it much better ! Best of Luck for your gorgeous design :) xx
Hi Dawn, thank you so soooo much for your help. I have already updated my "Party Hat" as per your suggestions. You're right. The design is better and much cleaner now, I really love the outcome! However, I'm not really sure about the confetti. Can you take a look at it one more time, if that's okay with you? :D Thank you again and best of luck!
Great minds and all of that Dawn. Thanks.
Hi Dawn, Thank you so much for very helpful feedbacks :) I agree with you about the photos in 'my story' and foil pressed on the letters ! and I'll play around with the size of the photo on my 'her grad' :) Your Hashtag collection is really cool and super fun ! Best of Luck :)
Ok, so one of my sentences got cut off. "One day I'll be an expert and won't make all these embarrassing mistakes!" My fingers are really cold right now, it's hard to type, sorry!
Dawn! Thanks for the comments on my designs. I'm embarrassed to say that I've never aligned the stroke before ( I've done the cap and corners bit, but not the align). One day I'll be an expert! And the pennant, that line was bothering me too, so now I have justification to move it. HA! Thanks as always :)
Hey Dawn, thank you for your help on my poll. The photo was modeled after the periodic table, that's why that white bar is there-- not really great design but true to life, haha. I'm going to take your suggestions and try to make something more presentable out of the design. Thank you for your feedback!!
Thanks for your comment on my grad entry "In Frame" :) I took another pass at some options to try to incorporate more white space. Much appreciated!
Hi Dawn, Thank you so much for your very helpful feedback and so kind of you :) I've change it and I'm going to make a poll again ! It's much much better !! I love it since I removed the exclamation :) wow thank you again.
Hi Dawn, thanks for the likes on my Valentine's Day entries-- it's one of my favorite holidays! I love what you did with Bugs and Kisses-- totally one of my favorites! Best of luck and take care :)
Hi Dawn thank you very much for your great suggestions! I made some changes and started a poll if you get a chance to take a peek:) Your Bugs & Kisses is one of my favorites such a cool idea and love your illustration!!
Hi Dawn! Thank you so much for the likes on my Valentine's entries!! I LOVE your Bugs & Kisses design so much!! I definitely think it'll be a winner!! Best of luck in all the challenges!! Have a great week!! :)

Hi Dawn. Thank you so much for taking the time to offer recommendations on my "so sweet cupcake". I am polling a few versions. Take a look when you get a chance and let me know what you think. :)) I love your bugs and kisses!! Best of luck.
Hi Dawn, thanks for helping me with the doorbell! I know what you mean about the red orange version, I like it more than the new one - which I made to look more "brassy" as not many people seemed to have noticed it. Now I'm stuck with it, have gone with the teal, as I am away in Italy and don't have access to my files here. Thanks again :)
Never mind. All over the place and now back to original. So appreciate your insights Dawn.
Always great to hear from you Dawn. cuter?or revert to first? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/683791

Dawn, thanks for your help with my Jotted Love Valentine's design! Great suggestions! I really appreciate it.
Thanks Dawn for your feedback on my adoorabell idea - I am going to change the color and fill of that type you suggested. You're super good at typography so I am all ears :)
hi dawn....thanks so much for the input on my Super Hero entry.....my friends little boy is always says "Superheros Rule"...so i thought i'd try it....but i can see that it was confusing since i heard the same comment from not only you but another minted artist as well......i so appreciate the input....i have changed the wording...hopefully new wording is better understood:))
Yes, I so appreciate when people love insects as much as I do! I also appreciate that you incorporated beetles-- they are my favorite. If you need inspiration google giraffe weevil. ADORBS!
Thank you so much Dawn! I totally agree!
Thank you SO much Dawn!! You are so sweet :) I never would have won for Tropical Vibes without your suggestions ~ cheers to you! Hope you are doing well <3

Hey Dawn! Thank you for your feedback on my luggage tag notebook. I took out the text box because it felt awkward-- I never know what to do with those personalized boxes! Thank you for taking the time to help me. Best!
Thanks so much on your comments on True Colors. I will definitely play with the type placement a bit and get a poll up. Appreciate you taking the time:)
Thanks for the "like' on my design "Birmingham Blue" ... good luck in the Design Challenges!
Hi Dawn, Thank you very much for taking the time to like and comment on my entries. It means a lot coming from a community member as talented and successful as yourself!
Dawn! Thank you for your most insightful critique of my Welcome Baby New Year entry. I had such a hard time with the layout-- but in the end I liked the sun on the bottom, too so I went for it. I'll just hope for the best... and if not, maybe self-launch it as an art print :) best of luck in the challenge!
thanks for your support, not repair my pc :(
Grats on winning a Cheers to a New Year challenge Critique Award!
Dear Editor-in-Chief, did new look. Too ordinary? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/632804
Thank you so much for the feedback. I appreciate your perspective! <3
Thanks so much for your kind words! I've been shooting like crazy so I have a lot of submissions I've been waiting to enter in a challenge. I absolutely adore your robots--wish I had little kids, but mine are all teens and tweens now!
Hi Dawn, thank you for your helpful comment. Great to meet you on minted.
I like your Robots. Greetings from Berlin, Germany!
Hi Dawn! Thank you for the lovely comments and support of my submissions. Though brisk, I would highly recommend seeing a glacier in person if presented with the opportunity. Best advice, wear lots of layers and bring warm beverages! ;) Best of luck with challenge! Cheers! K
