We’re having a very happy Halloween here in the DEER LITTLE FOREST!
Taking time away from sketching in the studio, the DLF folk set off for the woods in search of fun and magic! We found friendly, talking trees and skeletons made from leaves and twigs. We warmed ourselves drinking yummy hot chocolate and had a jolly old time toasting marshmallows round the camp fire. It’s been a wonderful time, relishing nature, Autumn and friends!
Happy Halloween everyone! X
The days following our second BLE show have quite simply flown by! It was a fantastic show for the DEER LITTLE FOREST and we’ve been really busy here with interesting follow-ups and exciting plans! (updates coming soon 😉
With the first book in the DLF series complete, I am all set to forge ahead with the second. Last week I tidied the studio and re-stocked with paper and pencils, this week I’m searching for inspiration. I’m loving the feast of Autumnal colours and textures available this time of year and find my regular forests walks the most inspiring. I find everything about this time of year seems to evoke the ethos of the hand-crafted DEER LITTLE FOREST, from cosy knits, warm rustic fires and yummy, home-made, veggie stews.
The pumpkins are ready to be carved and lovely, leaf collages have been made by Loki for the studio. I even think Rowan the Fox is loving the Autumn season too!
It’s a bit grey and cloudy in the Deer Little Forest today, so we’re using up the last of the Easter craft bits to make some colourful decorations to brighten our Bank Holiday weekend. We hope you all have a wonderful and colourful weekend too!
Big Bear Hugs!
Deer Little Forest will be at Camden Market this Friday, forming part of the selected 30 Designer/makers for ‘We Make London.’
We will have a great selection of our Eco-friendly products on sale, including a huge selection of cards, notebooks, invites, prints and wall stickers. We hope to see you there! We’re hoping for a little sunshine too……. 🙂
We hope you all had a super weekend and are feeling refreshed and ready for the week ahead.
Our weekend was filled with wonderful friends, parties and ceremonies. I became a Fairy God Mother/Guardian Angel to the beautiful Matilda Rose, during a Humanist ceremony held in the same field as our Wedding took place last year. So lots of happy vibes there and many, new, wonderful memories made.
I read a poem I’d written for Matilda and gave her a painting I’d created for her, depicting her as a fully grown ‘Warrior Queen’ of the forest. I hope Matilda will enjoy looking at this as she grows through the years. Here’s a snippet…

Have a great week.

The Deer Little Forest Loves Pulse and what a absolutely fab time we had!
Since returning from our first Pulse show, we simply haven’t stopped! New orders to get ready for our new, fantastic and fabulous stockists and so many new leads and delightful people to contact, it really was a wonderfully, successful show for us.
Our stand was met with much excitement, with so many visitors delighting in our unique and colourful designs. It was an utter pleasure to chat to every single person who visited us and we really have appreciated everyones positive feedback and support.
It’s all go now, with orders to send, and a new and exciting brochure to get ready. New designs and projects too! An exhibition of my original work to organise, oh, and, really exciting little project…………… a Deer Little Story book to finish…………………;-)
The Biggest Thank you and Bear Hugs to all of you who visited us at Pulse and a special thank you to everyone who have helped us to create the most perfect, first, Deer Little Forest Trade Show! X
