Hi! I just wanted to say thanks for your input on my All About That design. I played with the colors - and you're right, it definitely stands out more in white. But of course I had to play around and make a poll. Ha. :) Anyway, thank you! Love getting your input! Means so much.

Hi, Meg! Thanks so much for the feedback on "Botanical Blooms." I changed the font to a lighter weight Cyclone -- I'm trying to keep the design from tipping too far to the "delicate" side. Let me know what you think if you have a chance!

Thanks for the reply, Meg! What a year for you! I think that's so awesome that your designs were so well received at the stationery show. I've seen some of your non-Minted designs recently (i.e. your collage cards) and they really are beautiful... can't wait to see them in the stores! And those Anthro cards are to die for... so love that edge painting & your letterpress is lovely! Thanks for the info and I appreciate you offering to answer any questions I may have. I will keep it in mind as my business grows... thank you!! :)

Hi Meg! I just started a thread on the forum about getting your products into stores then I saw on your blog you are selling cards at Anthropologie. Congrats! They are beautiful... so fun! I feel pretty stupid asking this, but how do you do it? I know you have a ton of stuff in all kinds of cool stores across the country and your work is amazing (I'm not there yet!) but I feel like there's some little secret that I can't find the answer to :). Do you mind telling me how you got your product in actual stores? Did they come to you or did you go to them? Thanks Meg. By the way, that kitchen of yours looks so pretty.

I will try harder next year!

Hi there, Meg! I just read your helpful comment on the forum and clicked over to see your work (I'm new around here). I love it! I enjoyed what I saw so much that I ventured to your website to admire some more and finally ended up following all your pinterest boards! I promise I'm not stalking you :) It's great to see the thoughtfulness both of your design work and to read your wisdom relating to the process of continually grappling with expressing your unique voice and communicating well.

If he has to attend, then I won't be able to go because I'll be at home with our little girl. If he doesn't, then I should be able to. It would be so great to finally meet everyone in person!! :o)

Meg, you just made my day! I've had a design crush on your work since I joined Minted, so that's a huge compliment coming from you! I know you're a letterpress maven–do you ever collaborate with other designers? I've always wanted to get a letterpress myself, or at least take a class, but it hasn't happened yet.
