I am starting something NEW and I am so excited! On Fridays, I want to feature a local Utah product/business that I personally LOVE, and call it Feature Friday. There is so much talent, wonderful products, and small businesses in Utah. I love shopping and supporting local, so I thought it would be something fun and interesting to share one each week. I will also try to always get a discount for you all as well.
And look how fun! The very first business I want to feature is poppy+ink. Nicole (the owner and artist of poppy+ink) drew and painted this picture of my family. I love it so much! I found her on instagram and fell in love with her work. She can take any family photo and draw it exact, or she can just take each family member and put it in a whole new picture, with outfits you create.
I sent her a family photo of ours, and had her change the outfits and poses. This portrait is what she came up with and I am going to cherish it forever!
I asked Nicole how she got started doing these portraits:
She said, “It started with Mother’s Day gifts for my mom and mother-in-law. I wanted something different. Neither family had recent family pictures taken, so it was a fun way to include all of the new family members. I had never done anything like this before, but I got brave and tried it out. I was instantly hooked. I did a few more for family and friends, and then Poppy + Ink was created. I love the creativity behind it. It is very therapeutic to me. I love creating something that people can cherish for years to come.”
She is giving 15% off their order to the first ten people to book.You can email her at email@example.com and mention Utah Deal Diva to get the discount. Prices start at $40 for 2 people and then each additional person/pet is $10. This includes a digital copy as well as a printed copy. Also, booking dates will be for the New Year since she is booked out for Christmas. But right now is a great time to book, because she will be increasing her rates after the new year.
I hope you like these Feature Fridays!
