Hi Everyone,
I'm a returning member to SCBWI. I was a member a few years back and had to take a break due to health and work commitments. I'm so excited to be back and working toward publishing a children's book or two. I look forward to meeting many of you! Have a wonderful evening!

Congrats on the encouragement, Kelly. And yes to what the others have said--query her with your next project (but don't send this one again).
How encouraging! I would keep that agent in mind for a new, future project.
I created my website on my own, but recently Molly helped me do a huge overhaul. She created some new graphics for me, and spent as much time as I needed to figure out the best customized colors and fonts for my post headers. She also cleaned up my top menu--people have been saying it's much easier to use now. She listened to everything I needed help with and did an amazing job.

I discovered Molly when Becca McMurdie gushed about her work on her author site:

:welcome and congratulations on a good rejection. I would def. keep her for a different project. Good luck!
I queried an agent and she got back to me within 2 days with such helpful feedback and kind words, but it was a rejection. I sent a quick thank you, but should I now take her off my list for the future? Or is it okay to query again down the line with a different project or a more workshopped version of the story she rejected?

Thank you for your advice – I'm a newbie!
Donna Farrell designed my website, and she was great to work with! She's also an illustrator.
