Hello everyone! Welcome to my new website! My name is Emma (or as most of you know me, Bilby) I have been creating Enamel Pins for almost Two years now! Here you can read about my journey and see some Behind the Scenes of my Workspace ♥
Yep, its just little me here packing your orders and creating Artwork every day. I truly appreciate every order I receive, without it I would still be stocking shelves, and that wasn't much fun.
I hail from the little Scottish town of Cumbernauld, and now I live in Glasgow. Every order is packed and shipped with love from bonnie Scotland!
I try my best to use as little packaging as possible in my orders without skimping on protection! Please Recycle
After studying Art, Animation and Photography at College I was mostly working Full-Time in a Supernarket while drawing in my spare time. I first began buying products and stock when I signed up as a Vendor at BronyScot, a My Little Pony convention. After that, I was hooked and quickly began to connect with other Pin Makers and Artists on Instagram ♥ After releasing my first enamel Pin of The Last Unicorn I eventually began chatting to Evy Benita and we decided to collaborate on a Kickstarter, which was to be my first! The Kickstarter was a HUGE Success and we funded all 10 pin designs, which featured British Wildlife with Bohemian Patterns. Since then I have continued to build my product range and released more and more enamel pins! Soon I was even doing more conventions and even shared a table with Sophie Eves at MCM Scotland Comic Con!! I eventually began looking into more products to create and recently added Lanyards and Charms to my collection. With Etsy sales booming it was finally time to open my own Online Store and take the next step in my Freelance Journey! ♥♥♥ ~ Bilby xx
Over the past year a lot has happened in my little business. I moved in with my partner and we added a fluffy little bundle of joy to our family ♥ My business continues to grow everyday and I couldn't do it without the help and support of my family ♥
Setting up Highland Bilby Illustrations has been an amazing journey and I'm so excited for what the future will bring! Who knows where it will end up ♥ During the day I work on Artwork for future projects, Pack Orders and try to keep on top of Instagram and more! Did you know I'm also an Children's Book Illustrator? I will frequently be working on Book Projects in between running highland Bilby too, and its so much fun! I would never have thought in a million years that this would be my job ♥
I take most of your orders to the Post Office and help with packing when its really busy. I usually am the one keeping track of the times and when we need to eat, because Bilby would just sit and draw all night if I didn't remind her its time for food!
I think I'm helping but really I just make things even more difficult! But I'm so darn cute I'm always forgiven ♥
" Such amazing quality! I couldn’t believe it when I found stickers of my favourite childhood movies and a print of my favourite Disney sequel! So so happy!! " ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
