About Shannon

I've set out to live a life full of creativity! Second only to my crazy family, taking ideas and playing with how they can be expressed visually is what I love. I studied visual communication design at the University of Alberta, and I continue to learn from other artists and designers here on Minted.

Hi, Shannon :) How are you? Hope your summer is lovely :) School year is about to start for MyKids, so it will get busy for us once more :) Meanwhile, there's still a few days left for the Kids Wall Mural Art Challenge... I hope you'll be submitting some of your wonderful work :) Fondly and Sincerely, Mariecor :)

Hi, Shannon! How are you? It snowed in San Diego this past week, which is mighty unusual (it's only happened three times the past ten years)! How's your Mom doing? I hope all is well. And how does your schedule look? If you have time, I'd love to collaborate with you once more for the Greeting Card challenge. If your schedule permits, I can Facebook message you the new, original copy I'm thinking can pair up well with your winter themes :) Just let me know. But more importantly, have a lovely February and March -- spring is arriving soon! With fondness and sincerity, Mariecor :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Shannon! I hope you are doing well, that your Mom is doing better, and that it has snowed for you! January is usually the time when they make those ice castles and snow palaces up in Canada -- such a dream! MyKids return to school tomorrow, and I have to return to work as well <sigh!> :) But I'm looking forward to all the new art you'll produce, Shannon, whether for the Large Format Art challenge or the upcoming West Elm and Pottery Barn challenges :) HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and yours, Shannon :)

Dearest Shannon ) Happy Belated BDay :) Thank you so much for designing a card for one of my copies :) You've realized the vision I had in my mind perfectly -- I'm ever so grateful and appreciative :) Hope the work garners good votes :) Meanwhile, there've been other projects outside of Minted that've required my attention, so I just focused on creating copy this time around. Not to worry, there are other Minted Challenges I'm gearing up for -- like the upcoming Pottery Barn Challenge :) Hope to see more of your work there, too, because I'm always a fan of all you do :) TV shows and films that I've been recently watching naturally show Canada in captivating ways, hence I hope this late spring going into summer is proving to be lovely for you :)

Hi Shannon, You have some clever phrases! I'm slowly learning. Trying to find that happy medium between what I like and what I think others will like. My first submission was horrible. I wish they would hurry up and get them deleted! But, with each submission I get more 'likes' than the last one...but its such a slow process. ugh

Dearest Shannon :) How are you? I hope you did not bruise during that spill you had a while back! I had a horrible spill in my undergrad days in Spokane, Washington. I forgot that ice lurked beneath the melted puddles and lost all manner of traction. It was so embarrassing, and I felt the jarring in my bones! Anyways, onto happier things -- so what's this I keep hearing about maple syrup snow candy? I haven't had the pleasure yet :) And all the ice castles and snow palaces -- it all sounds so dreamy! I hope you'll have some designs soon that might incorporate them and all things about Canada as well :) Have a Happy + Lucky St. Patrick's :)

Hi Shannon, thanks for the note. We haven't been skiing this year at all... hopefully we'll be able to ski during spring break. We should get together when we're in Canmore. Good luck with your submissions.

So glad you found my advice helpful :) It's funny the things we get attached to. I can tell other people to lose it but my own designs I get way too emotionally attached lol. Glad they found a new home though because they were great icons!

Dearest Shannon :) Thank you for stopping by to jot a note of uplifting encouragement :) I've grown increasingly fond of the welcoming cordiality and jovial reassurances you bring :) Meanwhile, how are you? I trust all is wonderful for you and yours ) Last year, some of my family members in the Midwest (e.g. Chicago and Missouri) had a rather cold polar vortex; I hope you are keeping warm, cozy [in the spirit of Scandinavian 'hygge' -- which seems to be the recent trend this winter season], and healthy where you are, Shannon :) As for me here in Southern California, we've had extensive rain since this new year (2017) began. And while it has alleviated the drought and brought forth blooming desert flowers, the ground's not too good at holding water, so there's some flooding in areas, and certain California drivers are not as cautious on the road... But, we like to look at the bright side of things, so we hope the weather turns up better soon here as well as for you up there in the mighty North :) With sincere appreciation for you, Shannon, and all the aesthetic things you do with care :) Marie :)
