Thanks so much for the like Sara :) Your submission "Rejoice Star" is amazing!
thanks for liking my entry, appreciate the support :)
So I decided to take out the foil and do a poll. :)
Ok, good advice, I will move it. :)
Hi Sara, I was thinking having it faux foil. Do you think I should put it in the foil challenge anyway? I want to do the right thing.
Hi Sara! Did you leave feedback for me on Elegant Trio? I got an email but nothing was there... If you didn't mean to you can just ignore this. Happy holidays! LOL ;)
Hahaha, hi Sara! I was voting on shower invites and flashed on a convo we had when you visited SF... looks like you chose to go back to your original name after all! Good luck in the challenge! : )
Hi Sara thank you so much for the likes!! I love you style, your typography is so very inspiring!
Hi Sara! I just wanted to stop by and thank you for your lovely comment. You have so many beautiful designs in the baby challenge!
Thank you, Sara! Yes, I am fixing them hahha..
Thanks for the spelling error catch Sara! I'm such a terrible speller...how embarrassing :-|
Sara, thanks so much for your comment on my polka dot design. You were absolutely right!
Hi Sara thank you very much for taking my poll I really appreciate your suggestion and I will give it a try:)
Hi Sara, it was so nice to visit with you at minted. Hope you and your loved ones enjoy a happy Thanksgiving! Good luck in the wedding challenge!
Sara thanks for the congrats and back to YOU!!!
Wow! Thanks so much for the support, Sara! You're da best!! :)
aw no! totally deserved love all of them :)
Thanks so much for the nice comment, Sara! Just had a chance to go through your submissions. Tons of great stuff! Best of luck in the holiday challenge! :)
Thanks much, Sara! I hit the big double digits finally haha!
Sara, congrats on #100! (Right?)
You too! Your work is always so perfect! thank you for the nice note :)
Thank you Sara for your like on Snow Friends, I really admire your work.
Oh Sara you just made my night with your comment. Thank you, thank you!! You know I'm such a big fan of yours :)
Sara, thanks for your note. I certainly don't have a patent on "Let the Good Times Roll" :) The designs are so different and I saw all your designs today and liked them all and didn't even notice the phrase. So please stop worrying; I think both are fine and no harm done. And let me say I LOVE your entries. Great work. Chris
Thanks Sara, thanks for the + feedback... Looking forward to seeing your holiday designs!
Thanks for the catch! Oops. :)
Sara, your entries in the birth announcement challenge are fabulous!
Hi Sara! I've been meaning to say THANK YOU for your kind words on my holiday designs. It means so much. I've always been a huge fan of your work and style. I can't wait to see how things turn out for the holiday collection, but know you are going to have a ton a great sellers! Good luck and hugs!!
Hi, Sara! I just wanted to thank you for your very kind comment -- it meant so much. I always love your work, and I can't wait to have a chance to check out your submissions!
Hi Sara, I just wanted to reach out to you because I just came across your Captured design... I hadn't seen it before and there are some similarities with my Penned design, which was totally accidental! Anyway, love all your holiday submissions... they're so fresh and modern!
Sara, You are one the designers whose work I always love so it meant a lot to me to read your kind comments. I haven't dared look at the holiday entries except when I submitted so anxious to see yours. Let's hope we both get some winners/picks.
Aww, so glad my comment made your day! And thanks so much for your kind words! Submitting a non-photo version of my design is a great idea. Thank you for the helpful feedback! Looking forward to seeing more of your designs in the future too. :-)
Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Sara! I love your collection, too! So bright and festive!
Yes! I think there are just three of us for now. We should get together soon!
Thanks for your very kind comment, Sarah! So glad we got to meet too, wish we'd been able to chat. I hope you'll come again next year! And btw, your entries this year are awesome!
Thanks for all your lovely comments on my designs, Sara! Your holiday submissions are also awesome! Good luck!!
P.S. Made my day! :)
Aren't you the sweetest thing ever?! Thanks so much, Sara! I always love your work. Best of luck to you, too!! :)
Thanks for all your feedback on all my polls! I certainly value your opinion - love your submissions in this challenge too! good luck! xoxo
While I'm here, I love your Farm to Table wedding suite!!
Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my latest holiday entry, Sara - I really appreciate it! And huge congrats on your photo collage wins!!! I wish you many sales on those!!!
Thank you so much for the great feedback -- feel like I'm really struggling with these cards. I see in your profile you grew up in florida -- I grew up in tampa - miss the warm sun and water so much! :)
Heh heh - my feedback's not always nice. Once I told Jen Wick that her design made me want to fling things at her out of jealousy. She won't let me live that down!
Thanks so much for your comment on my blossoming wreath design, Sara. I was thinking the same things & not liking the current version so will definitely give it a try. :) LOVE all your work!
haha! Great minds think alike, right? Thanks Sarah! I'd never think that :)
Just wanted to say that I love your beautiful profile pic! Even though I loved your last one with the adorable little guy, it's great to finally see you : )
Thank you for the nice comment on Merry Modern! You produce so many great designs! I love seeing your challenge entries.
Sara, do you sleep? so many amazing designs! You are probably getting a "like" email from me every hour.
I posted minutes on facebook. Look me up, send me a friend request and I'll add to to the group (it's a private group, so you can only add "friends"). Kim
Thanks for your note! Congrats on your latest wins, as well!!! :)
Congrats on your wins !
Congrats on your four latest wins - yay, you!!! :)
Sara, thank you so much and big congrats to you as well with your festoon win and editor's picks! I'm bummed they didn't select your butterfly garden, because I still love that design! And I love your profile pic too. It just makes me laugh every time I see it : )
Sara just wanted to tell you that I LOVE your profile pic. It makes me smile every time I come to one of your designs while voting. I would say it may sway me a bit on scoring your designs, but you your talent stands on its own. Thanks for making me laugh :)
congrats on your moving announcement special award! great stuff -- keep rockin'!
Congrats Sara on your wins! Love your work ....and your profile pic!!!!
Congrats Sara on all your recent pics. I love your style and work. Way to go!!
