INK AND BOBBIN my little side business...

 Hello all. Heather here.  How is everyone enjoying spring? It sure is getting nice here.

If you follow me at all on Instagram @quiltstory, you may know that I started a little watercolor portrait etsy shop, under my new account @inkandbobbin. I have really had fun with it. 

I have painted, drawn, created art for as long as I remember. I sold art prints on Ebay to match Potterybarn betting sets before Etsy was even around! Well, I started playing with watercolors early this year, and started painting my sketches. Then I started painting cute kids from Instagram. I finally decided to start a little tiny Etsy shop to sell my custom watercolor portraits, thus Ink and Bobbin was born. 






I can work from direct photos like the example above....


Or I can throw a bunch of photos together to get the look you want. We can change outfits and colors easily. 


I love doing family portraits...




or just a single special child. 


Please visit my new shop. Also, I am offering my QuiltStory readers a coupon code, SPRING for 30% off your order. It lasts through the weekend. Let me know if you have any questions. I would love to paint your child or family!

I love the customized illustrations! I bet the family portraits come out very unique, especially if you throw a bunch of photos together and make them as one. Anyway, I'm glad to see you starting a business of your own. You're doing such a great job! Thanks for sharing that! Kudos and more power to you! :)

Your illustrations are so fun and creative! I'm sure grasping success in the field of arts was elusive, but look at where all that hard work got you. Ink and Bobbin is an amazing print shop, and I can tell how much your followers love your products. Good job in making that little side business skyrocket to the top, Heather! Thanks for sharing that! Kudos and more power to you!
