  1. Hi Ana,
    I really enjoy your patterns – they are very cute! However I have a problem seeing yellow colored font on a white background (I’ve got OLD eyes!). Would it be possible for you to change the font color and/or the background color on your website? Thanks!

    • Hey Kelly! Thank you for the feedback (although I am a bit late to reply you). I will fix this about the yellow/white for sure! Now that you mention, and I paid attention, for me is also a problem! Thank you thank you! And I hope I can fix this soon (I am the one creating this website and I am not an expert…I just learn on YouTube..hehe)

    • Hey Kelly! I just changed to dark pink. You think you can see it better now? I am open to suggestions!
