About us

Hey there,

I’m Elle Turner and I’m thrilled to welcome you to my online world!

Not long ago I gave up my day job to launch Emerald and Lime, my very own business! I now love to spend time writing, and designing unique, elegant stationery - stationery made for my words and yours.

The route from there to here

For a number of years I knew I needed to make a big change, so I did what every self-respecting writer would do and turned to a blank notebook to figure out what was wrong with my life! Call it what you will – a notebook, a journal, a diary – it was the place I worked out what I wanted to do and then planned the way to make it happen. It definitely wasn’t a quick process, and a lot of the time it’s still not easy, but I’ve finally got my own business and made the change I wanted to make. Hooray for that!

Doing things differently

At Emerald and Lime you’ll find original, inspiring, earth-friendly stationery products. I hope our fifty-word-fiction prints will encourage you, our note cards and writing paper will keep you in touch with those who matter most and our notebooks will become home to all your thoughts, plans and dreams.

As well as being pretty and colourful, Emerald and Lime's products are earth-friendly - printed on, and with, materials that show concern for the environment. It’s so important to me to produce products that are lovely, but it’s equally important to me to consider the impact of doing so.

Elle Turner lives with her husband and two children in Edinburgh where she is so lucky to run Emerald and Lime. Elle has pretty much no sense of direction, if you offer her a 50:50 she will ALWAYS get it wrong and, despite living in Scotland, she has no shoes that don’t leak. All Emerald and Lime fiction and designs are Elle’s own. If you would like to find out more about her writing, she’d love to see you at www.elleturnerwriter.com
