Forest Feet!

Spotting monster feetWhilst walking in the DEER LITTLE FOREST today we stumbled upon some green, fury, monster feet! Don’t you just love spotting magical things in the trees 🙂

Just as Forest Flo say’s ‘Magic time, let nature shine!’ 🙂

Happy Halloween!

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

Halloween in the DEER LITTLE FOREST

 

 

Rowan the Fox Loves Autumn Time!

 

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!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone from the Deer Little Forest!

What an amazing year 2013 was! Lots of hard work and creativity and bags of determination mixed with a touch of forest magic, meant that the Deer Little Forest had a fantastic first year!

As a small business with a big dream, we launched at the trade show ‘Pulse’ in May 2013 and then again at ‘Brand Licensing’ in October, to a wave of interest and excitement in our designs and products. We achieved the finalist nomination for the Henries ‘Most promising new artist/ designer 2013’ and met some new, fantastic people who have inspired and encouraged us along the way.

We have also had the most wonderful support from our customers, so a big ‘thank you’ to you all!

Christmas came a welcome break to spend quality time as a family, to celebrate our successful first year and to look forward to the year ahead!

2014 is set to be just as exciting! We are working on some new, fantastic projects, starting this January, as we begin preparations for our second ‘Pulse’ show. We also look forward to collaborating and working with some wonderfully creative people, which we cant wait to tell you about ……….but you’ll have to wait a little longer for that 😉

We wish you all, the happiest and most magical year ahead and hope that all your dreams come true!

Happy New Year 2014
