About Susan Brown

I live on a lake in Wisconsin and amidst some of the tidiest farmland in America. The dominant Scandinavian and German cultures are a constant influence. And plenty of Irish to keep it all fun.

I'm so sorry I didn't see you Tuesday night to say good bye but I have a strong feeling we will be seeing each other again. I had a 7a flight home on Wednesday. I wish you the best of luck as well on the upcoming challenges. You are such an inspiration. xx

Hi, Susan! Thank you for your kind note. You're speaking my language: going through so many iterations of a design that you lose all perspective (and see it when you close your eyes, haha). Good luck with the holiday challenges, and congrats on another year of earning Magenta status! ~Laura

Wow, Sue, that is really kind. Thank you. I had to miss my grandma's funeral, which was really sad, but my husband had to leave town and we couldn't afford for me and 3 kids to fly across the country to the funeral. But I am alright nonetheless. It's better now that it's over and I don't have to wish I could go so much! And that design is really striking! Hope it (and your others) do really well for you! Thanks again for your kindness. That was really so sweet.

Sue- I'm sorry for the delay in responding! I had to look hard, really hard for the design you were referring to. I vaguely see what you're talking about but nothing to worry about here! I usually hide most of my designs most of the time in large part because it stresses me out to worry about overlap with others! I hope you did not consider mine too close to yours? Regardless, love your entries for save the dates and best of luck! xoxo

Thank you!! I totally see it now. It's like the top mimics the bottom almost. A little too cutesy for me. I'm going to go with that photo since it was the clear winner, but darken the sky so it works better.
