Hello! I am Anna, the designer and creative behind Splendid Invitations & Events. I work part-time for the Ontario Provincial Police and part-time creating all the beautiful pieces you see on my Facebook and Instagram feeds. I am a wifey, to an amazing and very supportive husband and a Momma to two sweet boys who are my whole world.
I started this little venture just over 4 years ago, while I was on maternity leave with my first son. We had gotten into a great routine and while he slept, I found myself craving a creative outlet. My first piece was an engagement print for a close friend of mine. It went over so well that when another friend was having her first baby, I decided to create a birth stat print for her as a gift. Suddenly, I was being asked by friends and family to recreate these pieces for them to give as gifts. So, after a lot of discussion and encouragement from some of my favourite people, I decided to take a leap of faith and start a Facebook page. I had no idea it would turn into the success it has today.
Over the years, my focus has shifted from custom prints to invitations and event stationery. There is something really extraordinary about getting to create something that sets the tone for people’s most special events. Bringing people’s visions to life has now become my passion and I get so excited to create new and unique pieces every day. I am so thankful.
Since starting Splendid, I have made some pretty amazing friendships in our little maker community. It has opened my eyes and my world to shopping local and handmade. I am so honoured and proud to be a part of such an amazing group of hardworking and talented entrepreneurs.
