Thanks for your comment on Jolly Holly , a cool tid bit of info I'v discovered over the years I dont use strokes a) because they dont convert properly when sizing your illustration b) they are very limited and you can not put a texture or patern on them properly. I use offset paths and so far it has made my world just a little bit awesomer.

Hi Karen, I was just checking out your new etsy shop. So sweet things. The one suggestion that I have for you on the stationery sets is to include the amount in a set somewhere in the introduction of the product. It took me a little bit of time to figure out that it was 15. Just from my personal experience from etsy, most people want to know all the info up front and don't want to have to go searing for the info. Simple saying set of (15) A2 note cards instead of set of A2 note cards would be helpful. Just a suggestion : )

I thought "sweet amelia" was beautiful in the beginning but I have to say I wasn't prepared for what I would find when seeing the finished suite just now. It is absolutely stunning. I am in awe of the backer and envelope liner. You totally outdid yourself on this one. You should win an award for "best complementary designs for an already award-winning design"!

Hi Karen! I wanted to thank you for the honest comment on one of my birth announcements. I definitely did not mean for it to be offensive to anyone. Although I clearly understand where you are coming from, I did not mean at all that twins are not unique individuals. I was just very thankful you shared your perspective while I was still able to delete it from the contest. I promise that I do try to be tasteful with my designs, and had I thought of your perspective in advance - I would've never posted it!
