Thank you, Laura! ;)
Laura, your holiday entires are lovely! I am really enjoying your hand-lettering. It is divine!
Loving your holiday work - your lettering is gorge!
Laura- loving the canvas entries for the West Elm Challenge! Awesome work!
Thanks for the compliment Laura, but you have some truly amazing holiday entries! Don't ever think you shouldn't try!! It's going to be tough for anyone to get noticed in these challenges, there's just so much good stuff! Best of luck to you! :)
Ha! Thanks Laura! Trying to be done but keep finding things to tweak. Its driving me crazy :)
thanks so your super duper comment on my floral frame, Laura!
Hey, fellow Laura! Absolutely do not remove your design!! It's lovely and I've actually had this same issue before (I accidentally created something similar to and similarly named as another designer). I wouldn't think it was an issue at all if our first names weren't also the same- that might be confusing to voters. I wrote to Minted to ask what they think is best, but I think a simple name change should do it. DO NOT delete something so lovely!
Thank you so much for your kind words Laura! I am so behind on getting back to everyone but it really meant a lot to me. I squealed out loud for you when I saw that you had gotten one of the special awards! I am so happy for you and it was so well deserved!
Hi Laura, I didn't realize it was so close to the edge! I've updated my design, thanks so much for your comment!
Laura!!! Congrats on your "Cool Colors Award." Joyful Reindeer is such a beautiful and well-deserved win!!
Thanks so much, Laura - youa re so sweet! :)
Laura - your joyful reindeer design looks great! I hope it sells lots and lots.
