About SplendidElk

Sales 144
On Etsy since 2015

Splendid Elk was born out of my weakness for beautiful fabric, my absolute need to create, and a long-standing dream to be my own boss.

For the most part, my career has been focused on the world of retail and business, providing clients with market research and customer service insight. I have always wanted to be on the other side of the fence though, to be my own boss.

When my son was born in 2013, I chose not to return to employment in favour of staying at home with him, whilst setting up Splendid Elk. Honestly, I didn’t have a clear vision of what I wanted the business to look like, no eureka moment, only that I wanted to run my own creative business, allow creativity to flow unstifled and dance to my own tune.

Today I run Splendid Elk part time around family life, the work life balance is pretty good and I’m really happy with the direction we’re going in.

The two people in the photo are my mum and my son, we had a wonderful few days in the sunshine at the seaside a couple of years ago, treasured memories.
