Hi Karly, thanks so much for your comment. I wanted to check in with you about my profile pic. You have such a good idea of adding text on the photo. I've updated mine to include my name, not the company name, b/c it kind of bothers me that people can't see my name when they click on my designs. It seems like you're the only one who's added text, and if it bothers you at all let me know and I will change it. Thanks! :-)

Hi Karly! Thank you for your sweet comment! So nice to see your gorgeous designs at Minted again! Actually, I was gone for a couple years, too, and just started back last Fall. It's so neat that we were both here for the very first Minted Holiday challenge. We were part of their early beginnings! Anyway, you've always been one of those designers that everyone (including me) looks up to. You'r work is so impeccable, and you're always so gracious + kind! Thanks again!! Lori :)
