After  a lot of organizing and set ups, I am so excited to announce you the opening of In Whirl of Inspiration Shop: Colors and Textures!

Wow, where this came from, you may wonder. This blog was born back in 2011 from my need to share stories and culinary and artistic concerns. Coming to today, I put some thought in it and I decided that sharing snippets (of mine) inspiration wasn't enough, I wanted to share a bit of tangible creativity. Such one, that you could use in your daily life. Thus, In Whirl of Inspiration Shop: Colors and Textures was born.

For now, we have developed the section of Colors in collaboration with my awesome dad and we offer watercolor and pencil  portraits for yourself or your loved ones. Great personal gifts for holidays if you ask me. [The section of Textures will be announced soon (I can only say that this has to do with crafts :))]. For now (because we still work on our shipping strategy), the portraits will available digital form. Explaining: we will create a portrait based on the photo that you will send us, scan it at high dpi resolution and send it to your email address. You can use it as you desire after this (printed or digital use)*.

In order to celebrate our opening, we offer 2 free portraits in 2 lovely readers.
