It all started on a school bus. My 7-year-old self traded a brand-new heart hair clip for a tattered notepad. How could I pass up all that paper? I'm still an ardent paper lover, who thinks good typography and beautiful photos will never lose their magic. I also think it would be impossible to ever have too many days at the beach or freshly sharpened pencils or books you can't put down. Or hand addressed envelopes in your mailbox.

Hello, and thank you for choosing a b.wise design! I hope that it puts a smile on your face. All best wishes to you and yours --

Please write a short statement about where you call home
and what inspires you as an artist. (Limited to 275 characters
or less). This note will be displayed to customers on the
product details page of your art prints on the Minted website.
Sample: Annie Clark approaches her art with a graphic
designer's eye. A long-time resident of the Mission in San
Francisco, she is constantly inspired by the diverse color and
texture of her neighborhood.
Having lived in several cities across the U.S., Alston Wise is inspired always by new places. Currently living near the coast of Florida, she finds endless inspiration at the beach. Her training in both oil painting & graphic design influence her compositions & use of color.
Please write a short note to customers who purchase your
art prints. Every Minted Art Print will come with a special
folded card that includes your picture and a thank you from the
artist, adding a special personal touch that helps customers
remember you and your artwork. This is separate from the Thank
You Note above and is important to position the art piece as a
high-end piece with credibility.
To help us prepare your special card, please make sure that
the image of you on the site is a photograph, not a logo, and
please draft a thank you note to customers, limiting yourself
to 150 characters. No words will be added to your statement,
so your statement should be written in its entirety,
including your name. Please do not include your contact info or
a URL. This information could create confusion for follow-up
Sample: Hello! I am so honored you chose my artwork to
hang in your home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have in
making it. Best to you, Annie
Thank you for choosing my artwork! I hope it adds to the beauty of your space, and brings you much joy each time you look at it. All the best, Alston
You have so many beautiful holiday entries, Alston!
congrats on your well deserved calendar wins!
Hi, Alston! I love your calendar submissions. I saw on your blog that you went back to school!! How incredibly exciting! I'm sure you are crazy busy, but what a wonderful opportunity. I hope you are loving every minute of it. All the best! Carrie
Wow...all of your holiday submissions are fantastic! Great work! :)
Hi Alston -- it was so great getting to know you at NSS! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit and had safe travels. All the best to you!
Hi, Alston! Just wanted to let you know that I ordered 4 of your "We Ate Cake" journals with my Trunk Show Host Certificate recently - I think they are perfect gifts! Didn't want you to be disappointed that there is no revenue associated with that purchase when you get your quarterly statement...
Hi Alston! I noticed that your Stock the Bag design had a thin line around the white background. I assume you put it in because of the drop shadow issue so i just wanted to let you know Minted fixed the drop shadow thing this morning so you might want to try it out. :o) I'm so glad they fixed it because it was bothering me. Oh, and as a side note, thank so much for your sweet note about my holiday card. It definitely put a smile on my face when I got that note. :o)
Thank you so much, Alston! I adore your designs, and have swooned over your Merry Ribbon lettering (among the many others), so I really appreciate you liking my Born Free design! : ) Thanks!
Hi Alston, i appreciated your note! :) Hope all is well! Wondering if you have a minute to help me with a design? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/51255

Hi Alston! Sorry so belated! I just wanted to thank you for your absolutely GORGEOUS holiday card! The photo of your children is sooo beautiful! That's what I LOVE about photography - capturing these magical moments and turning them into timeless works of art!!! Makes me want to pick it up again! Well, hope you all had a beautiful holiday season filled with joy + wonder! And I pray the New Year finds you all healthy, happy + blessed! See you around Minted! Can't wait to see more of your beautiful work!! Cheers!! :)
