About Gwen Bedat

I work for television by day, and use my free time designing stationery and surface pattern. I am fond of long distance flights, morning coffee, Donald P. Bellisario TV series, cheese fondue, Swiss wine, American literature, ice skating, and am very much addicted to modern technology.

Hi Gwen!! Thanks so much for leaving me that note on my Bouqs design! I figured you'd recognize that painting! I'm just glad I was able to put it to good use. :) I miss that creative time we had at the retreat. Hopefully, Minted will be putting together another creative retreat for this year! And if they do, you are going, right?! :)

Hi Gwen, I just saw your NY design on Instagram and of course thought darn she used my same line only better. Turns out my card came in 2 weeks after yours. Ack. It was coincidence and a line I've had in my stash for a long time. You probably did too. Sorry if it was a problem for you. See you soon.!
