Bobbin Designs!

While I was in New York, I discovered a beautiful stationery company while shopping at Kate's Paperie, called Bobbin Designs. I went their website right when I got home and found out that the company is based in Winston-Salem, NC. A mere 45 minute drive from my hometown, where I have been for the past few weeks since my return from MSLO. I contacted Jean Johnson, the founder and owner of the company and have had the opportunity to help her out a little bit for the past few days. I learned from her the life of an independent business owner and was totally inspired by her creative process. [[please note the cutest dog in the whole world, Chaucer, laying down behind me in that picture]]

Yesterday, I helped Jean think of new ideas for a huge Christmas card order she is shipping next week. Here are some of the ideas I created.
Jean and I are looking to do a little collaboration work soon. Here is an idea of how to use one of my patterns with Jeans adorable characters.
The woman behind it all! Jean Johnson, everybody.

I had such a great time helping Jean for the past few days. I love meeting new designers to learn from, especially ones that are as inspiring as her. Thank you so much Jean!
