The Swallow Family

Create something lovely to keep

Em Swallow

Hello and thank you for visiting Something Lovely's webpage.  I am the founder of Something Lovely.   I grew up in Sidmouth and moved back to the beautiful valley  in 2017 with my husband, two boys and our dog after moving to Lincolnshire in 2003.  I have been working as a PA within the charity sector for 10 years and really wanted to change careers to enable me to focus on my creativity and people skills and importantly spend more time with my boys (enjoying all the wonderful things Devon has to offer!).  I have always been creative and have enjoyed painting as a hobby.  I really enjoy working with people and bringing a smile to peoples faces - with pottery painting I can combine the two!

I have wanted to set up a pottery painting business for over 5 years, but the timing has never been right - is the timing ever really right to start up a business!?

We have really enjoyed painting as a family when on holiday and even my husband has enjoyed creating some wonderful painted items - our sugar bowl is a massive talking point.  I Love the phrase "if not now, when?", So here I am - ready to bring Something Lovely to East Devon!!!

I look forward to meeting you and helping you make some brilliant memories and taking home your own"Something Lovely" to treasure forever.
