Before my life as a wife, mom and stationery designer, I spent 10 years in newspaper design. My work tends to be sweet and simple, and I love when I can throw in a spark of personality or humor. I also love the creative outlet and community that Minted is, and I’m so happy to be a part of it.

Thank you so much for the suggestion, Lea. I really like how my joy stamp turned out in a multi photo layout.I think it's looking pretty solid, thanks to you. I really appreciate you sharing your valuable feedback! xoxo
Hi, Lea! Thank you so much for taking time to comment on my submission "Under the Tree". I took your advice and adjusted the overall size of the design. And yes, it looks better now, even with that little adjustment. Good luck to you! Grae
Thanks for your thoughts on my dotted design, apparently switching my email address means I am also not receiving emails with likes/comments. So awesome. :-P I'm gonna ask you for more feedback once I play around with that dotted one a little more. xoxo
Hi Lea, I took your advice and went landscape. If you have time I would love your thoughts. Happy Sunday! https://www.minted.com/design-rating/777987
Thanks for your comments on "Curly Joy", Lea! You hit the nail on the head - the layout was NOT sitting right with me at all either. I'd love your feedback on the updates. You have such a great eye! Thanks a million!
Yeayyy, thank you for the feedback on my design "christmas holly"!!! I took your advice and made some changes. Also, your designs are beautiful, I am honored to get advice from you.
Thankyou my friend for the lovely comment on Fall Forest, xoxo. Loving your lettering on IG! All the heart eyes!
Lea, Thank you SO much for the heads up on my submission. I read through the submission kit believe it or not! I guess all my brain registered was not religious. ha!
Lea, thank you for taking a moment to like my copy submission "All Aboard Crazytown". I appreciate the support and wish you the best in return! Erin

From Lagniappe Paper- Haha! I was signed into my other account.....
Thank you for your sweet message! We are really excited to join the Minted Team. Love all of your designs!
Dear friend, I was praying someone would get it. You did and took the time to write a comment. Made my day. Thanks L.
Hi Lea, thanks for the likes! It would be amazing to see some of my silly jokes in your killer designs!
your typography is rocking the pre-wedding entries :) LOVE them all. good luck :)
Hi Lea, Thanks so much for the like on my rings wedding pre-party submission. Congrats on all of the wins in the baby announcement challenge, and good luck on the wedding parties challenge. I love your designs!
I am also loving your entries in the Wedding Parties challenge. Your copywriting and design combos are so great.
I keep meaning to say congratulations, you killed it on the birth announcement challenge!! I seriously loved ALL of your entries, so glad you got so many picks! :)
Lea, thanks for your like of my 365 days entry in the text challenge. Best of luck on all your entries in 2017. - Corinne
Hi Lea! Thanks for your critique on my "Anemone Charm" design. It was really helpful and I'm always so grateful for a second set of eyes especially when they come from designers like yourself :) I'm so in love with all your work :)
Thanks for your nice comment, Lea! Love your work!
Thank you for the like on "Charming Classic." You're work is so clean and well thought out. Wishing you continued success!
Hi Lea! Thank you so much for you feedback on Azalea. I will try messing with the type some more. And I'm totally pumped to have you as an insta-stalker!!! :)
Hi Lea, Thanks so much for the like... I really appreciate it and your elegant designs! All the Best!
Hey Lea!Thanks for the comment and kind words on my Baby art design! I noticed your "What have we done" Birth Announcement design and LOVED it! So creative and fun! And I love the font in "Welcome Home". You have so so many awesome designs and love you took the time to comment on mine - totally made my day! Happy Weekend and good luck in the baby challenge!
So I saw your comment on "let's be honest" and I had to agree that it's really the only kind of shower I want to go to either. Single exception: one time I went to a shower where the activity was that everyone submitted their worst parenting moment and then the mom-to-be read them and tried to guess who each story belonged to. It was the best. Pretty much the only game I can tolerate at showers :)
Thank you for your sweet comment Lea! :) x
I'm noticing that in addition to losing a couple of points for grammar, if someone doesn't have an actual photo of themselves in their profile pic it can also make me vote a little lower. I'm weird.
Of course I saw your comments on Fly By after the deadline. Thanks for the tips, they would have been put to good use. Oopsies!
Haha! It makes me feel good you noticed my single entry so quickly ;) It's like I'm back from the dead. Haha.
THANKS so much for the grammar correction on my birth announcement. (How embarrassing!)
Thank you for the like on "simple type", Lea. I love the script choice on "center of attention". All the best!
Thank you for the compliment on my entry!
Thankyou Lea for that amazing comment on my Perfume design. You made my day :) xoxo
Thanks so much for your like Lea! Love the sense of joy in your work.... :)
No problem, you have lot's of good submissions! You're on your way to Y in the year 2017.
Hey Lea! Thanks so much for your helpful suggestions on my Be Modern submission. It's funny as after uploading the images I viewed them on my tablet and thought the same thing about ditching the bottom line in the portrait version. I made the changes and added a few photo options. Would love your opinion if you have time. Enjoy the weekend!
Hi Lea! Thank you so much for the like and feedback on my design! Your comments are encouraging..:) Best of luck to you!
I don't know what I'm going to do with noisemaker but I appreciate your feedback and took yours and Chris' advice and created a new layout with the same editorial look sans the noisemaker concept. Thank you Lea!!
ha! I guess i need to hang out on instagram more :) It's still a super cute design and I love it lol
HI Lea, Thanks for your feedback! Am definitely going to try it :)
Oh I know, I'm totally shocked, and happy and grateful...and shocked!! Ha! But I was particularly attached to that one, so...I will hopefully launch it somewhere!
Aww, thanks so much for your comment on Celestial Dreams, Lea! Of course I'm thrilled with my wins (like, over the moon in disbelief!), I'm bummed about this one!! Thank you, your comment made me feel so much better! I thought this was THE ONE. I wanted this one the most. Also, congrats on your win! I love it, so glad it's a winner! :)
Hey Lea! Thanks for the like on my Bon Voyage Grad entry! Hope you have a great week!
Thankyou Lea for your lovely words and help on my designs for the Grad challenge, friend. I'm loving your Holidays designs, so fun, bright and cheerful :)
Lea!!! I'm finally sitting down to read through my Minted emails and I loved loved LOVED the feature about you and your sweet family in the Meet the Artist article! Congrats!
Thankyou Lea for your wonderful words on my Chinoiserie Chic. As you had suggested changes on it, I tried & I tried & it didn't seem to work to me... I appreciate all the feedback. I loved reading your post and getting to know you better! I wish you all the very best! P.S: love your Holiday designs, your type based work is simply immaculate!
Thanks for your comment on Starry Skies, Lea!! I played with those colours a LOT, haha! I know you only had time for one wedding entry, but, it's a great one, love it!!
Thanks Lea! You are making me laugh with the beauty and the beast. :)
Dear friend, will you take a look if you have a minute. Thanks a bunch.
Thanks for the sweet comment, Lea. You made my day!
Ugh! You are so right about the registration. I'm obviously not thinking clearly... thanks for the feedback.
Hi Lea, I love it when you give me advice. Here's the change http://www.minted.com/design-rating/692181 I could get the info in italics after "Boston" but love how clean it is. Do you have entries w/out the reception info? Thanks L.
Hi Lea thank you so much for your great suggestions!! I'm going to work on the changes tonight. Looking forward to seeing the beautiful entries you will design:)
Thanks so much for the like on my "Fill My Heart With Joy" submission!
Thankyou Lea for your helpful words on my Lush design in the wedding challenge. I'm certainly lost with wedding entries & your input really helped, thanks once again friend :) <3
Hi Lea! Thanks so much for your nice note. I knew I was getting close...how exciting. Your holiday designs for sale are gorgeous. You have such a playful style and you marry photos and text so beautifully. x
Lea! Thank you for your sweet comment on my Party with a Purpose!! You were the only one who provided me with feedback on that design and I took all of your suggestions and the design looked remarkably better. I firmly believe your invaluable feedback helped me win, so THANK YOU!! I should send all my designs your way ;) Take care!
Hi Lea, Just stopping by to thank you with your suggestion to my Japanese Magnolia design. I truly appreciated your feedback, it was really helpful. Thank you ~ Paula :)
Lea, thank you so much for your thoughtful comment on my Gilt Medallion entry! I ended up tossing out the save the date text and stuck with a more clean font. Thank you for taking the time to help me with my entry. I sincerely appreciate it! Take care :)
Hey thanks for the like on my mag spread entry. I feel like something isn't right- im not getting the ultra crisp and fresh feel from it. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. If you have any suggestions, I'm open. And hey, I see your new year cards are launched already. They look great. And how frigging adorable is your Extra Cheer card?! It's so awesome. I love it.
Those little nit picks help! Thank you for taking the time to share. And congratulations on your holiday wins!
Congrats on all your holiday wins, Lea!
Sorry, I meant to say, I love your work!
Thank you, Lea on your feedback on my Bold Move save the date card, I appreciate it! I love you work!
Thanks for the feedback about my Walk in The Woods design. I'll give it another got with the leaves at top and work on the type. Thanks for your time and help!
Lea! Thank you for the feedback! It is my very first time us My my own handwritting so I appreciate it. You know I had the date hanging under the swashy line but I thought it looked like I was trying to hard to follow the curve. But I do like the ideas and I will continue to play with it. Thanks so much for taking the time to pay it forward! I really appreciate it.
Thanks for the comment Lea - fingers crossed other people agree! Will I still see you in Nashville in a few weeks?!?
Thank you for the warm welcome, Lea! Love your work! :)
Lea, I was on the call today and wanted to say how great it is that you stood up for your principles. Not easy to do but so honorable. Thanks from all of us.
Hi Lea! THANK YOU so much for your suggestions for my Party with a Purpose design, you are always so helpful! I knew there was something that needed to be tweaked, but I just couldn't my finger on it... I made the changes you suggested and I feel much better about the design. Thank you again!
Thanks Lea for catching that on my hot chocolate design! Greatly appreciated! :)
Thank you so much for your like on my ”Building memories" design. It means a lot to me. Great to see your wonderful photography.
Hi Lea, Thanks so much on your feedback on Painted Gate. I myself was wondering if the lettering was needed, and your comment just confirmed my doubt. So, thank you for that. Hope all is well!
Lea, thank you for the like on my Spaces and Places entry "Cabs in the Rain", much appreciated!
Thanks, Lea!! :) :) :)
I didn't know my design was up for a Louie Award. Thanks!
Hi Lea, Thanks so much for your feedback and input! I did make the changes and entered it in the right challenge this time :) Had my 2 year old on my lap pretending to design... so you can guess why that happened! Thanks again for your help. Glad i got to meet you in the city, even though for a brief time. Best of luck in the challenges!
Lea, thank you so much for your great advise
Hi Lea! THANK YOU for all of your sweet comments on my Record Year submission. I thought the modern was cool, too, but not festive enough. I used the old design with the new design's colors to make it feel a bit lighter. I'm going to work on the layout a bit more and hopefully it will all work. Thank you for your invaluable feedback!
Hi Lea, Wanted to thank you for taking the time to offer key advice on my Stylish Snowflake design. Your ideas made the difference! Much appreciated. : )
Hello,dear friend! Thank you for your wonderful words on Royal Guard and for your never-ending support :) Wishing you the very best for Holiday 2016,have been absolutely loving your designs,with heart eyes! xxx
Lea, You're a genius. Much better on the urn design. Thanks a bunch. So fun to see you in NYC.
Hi Lea, thank you for the like on my Year in Adventures entry, it totally made my day :) Your work is superb! Best of luck in the holiday challenges!
Thank you so much for your kind words! Your work is beautiful. O-H!
Hi Lea! Thanks so much for your like on my holiday challenge submissions! It's very encouraging as you have such lovely work! Thanks :)
OK, so I totally cheated and changed the message. ;) The "Y" on this font is way too much like a "G" and if I alter it, potential customers won't be able to change the message. It's a conundrum for sure. LOL I so appreciate your feedback! PS Congrats on making M!!!! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/608092
Thanks so much for your feedback Lea, I appreciate your insight! You have some amazing work! Best of luck to you!
Thank you so much Lea!
Hi Lea! Thanks for liking my designs! You have some awesome entries for this challenge. I really like your Happy Ho Ho Ho design. Best of luck! :)
Hey, thanks for your suggestion on folksy. It's a re-entry from last year, slightly updated, but the font switch is an improvement i think, good call. .thank-you!!
Lea! You just made my day, thank you so much! I started looking through entries just now and was feeling a little deflated about mine, but your comment put a huge smile on my face. THANK YOU!
Hi Lea, Thanks so much for always weighing in when I need an opinion. Once I get yours I pretty much know what direction I want to take. You're the best. Can't wait to see you at NSS!
Thank you so much Lea for your amazingly constructive words on my Festive Spirits design,really opened up my brain... I'm just enjoying creating patterns now so going overboard with the idea,haha! You have some amazing entries friend! Good luck!
Ugh, thanks Lea! :) Frankly, when I spend this much time agonizing over a design it never ends well, so I'm just leaving it be for now!
Hi Lea thank you very much for your helpful advice:) I made a change and started a poll I would love to hear your thoughts if you get a chance to take a peek.
Haha anytime, friend! Always love your work!
You are very welcome, Lea, it's a great classic design!
thank you for the like! I'm wondering if I should just get rid of the date completely? I was trying to do a little something different than just a basic border. I like when a date is incorporated into a design but maybe I should just let it go? I would love your opinion on this if you could please spare another minute?!
