Small Business Spotlight: The Littlest Falcon

I first met Merlyn at a Christmas Craft Fair in York back in 2018. It was a kinda quiet day and we got chatting after the cutest little penguin print on her stall caught my eye. I followed her on Instagram and ever since have been mesmerised by her work. The intricacy is shown first hand with behind the scenes videos, coupled with cute cat pics and hilarious talking stories. What's not to love? Let's get behind the paint and learn more about Merlyn and her small business, The Littlest Falcon...

1. So, first of all your actual name has to be one of the coolest ever. Merlyn Griffiths. It's like something out of Harry Potter! Is there a story behind your name? Thank you! I do love my name, definitely character building when I was younger, but I wouldn't be me without it! I'm technically named after the bird of prey, and spent years saying 'Merlyn, like the bird' when asked what my name was. These days I do tend to just say '... like the wizard', as so many people used to say 'Eh, what? There's a bird?!' I really like my surname too, and thought that if my other half and I ever get married I'd probably like to double barrel it... however that would make me 'Merlyn Griffiths-Corr' but I think that might be way too wizardy, even for me! 2. Sticking with names... The Littlest Falcon is the name of your business. Can you tell us a little bit about why you chose that and what it means to you?
