About Michelle Taylor

My name is Michelle and I am a freelance designer and a stay at home mom. Most of my time is spent taking care of my two young children but when I do have a free moment I love designing. I specialize in branding, logo and print design, but I have a passion for creating invitations, announcements, stationery and patterns.

Michelle, I was so touched by your message on my "just a moment" design. I really feel the need too! I don't have personal experience with losing a baby, but my best friend died from breast cancer in December 2016. I was so heartbroken and when holiday came around, I realized there is NOTHING for a bereaved family to send. I submitted a holiday card for families who have lost a loved one last year and it got picked up. It didn't sell much, which was actually great, because it was physically painful to see the sales emails come through. I know there isn't as much demand for sad cards, but I so want to fill that need for every grieving parent. I hope that I executed the "just a moment" card well enough that Minted will pick it up to round out their collection. Thanks for your kind words and all my condolences on the loss of your little ones. I have 3 kids and can't imagine the pain. lots of hugs.

oh my.. uuurghh I def how that feels! Dunno many times already =D But don't give up, you have so many good stuffs (some of them was really my fav without knowing you are the designer!) Outdoor whimsy is so unique! and the truck! I remember that truck and loving it so much!! So, you are not alone! Nobody can predict what Minted picks hahaha.. it's still always a mystery! But really, I like your design and style, so I am really looking forward to see more of your amazing stuffs. Good things, there's always challenges =D

Hi Michelle, OMG thank you so much for your nice comment! Flower is not my expertise, but that invite was prolly the best 'flowery' design I have made ;) Minted has so many nice flowers invites already, maybe that was the reason? And there are so many other gorgeous ones in this challenge as well that I was bumped didn't get pick! Nevertheless I am so grateful and happy with all the support I have from the community (including yours *.*) I love some of your designs! Angular, statement, Embrace are some of my ultimate favourites! Keep them for next time, you never know!
