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.

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at hello@inwhirlofinspiration.com, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
