Time for a nice cup of tea and time to get the next book started in the DEER LITTLE FOREST series.
High Tea for me please! 😉
I received a wonderful package from Finland today containing samples of our lovely cards now selling through Karto in Finland. We just love the font they’ve used, isn’t it super cute!
Karto produce a gorgeous range of postcards, greeting cards, gift wrap, as well as interior and tabletop products. We are delighted to see our range of DEER LITTLE FOREST designs sitting well alongside our favourite MOOMINS brand. Exciting!
It’s all been a bit quiet here in the DLF blog………but It’s been the busiest time ever in my studio! I’ve almost finished the first book in the DEER LITTLE FOREST SERIES, yay! It’s been a mammoth task to say the least! Half way through I decided to make changes to Forest Flo and so I had to start all over. Then I decided that I wanted to change how I was creating the illustrations, so this meant yet another change. well I guess it’s never worth doing anything unless you do it right and I wanted to make sure the first book looks really special 🙂
Phew! It was worth it though, as I am soooo happy with how the book is looking and soooooo excited to get it printed in time for the BLE licensing show in October. Here’s the new Forest Flo with the rest of the woodland gang!
Along with illustrating the first book, we’ve been busy signing a host of new deals aimed at supporting ecologically oriented charities. DEER LITTLE FOREST has joined Digital Giving’s T-Shirt Booth in support of The Woodland Trust and Timbergram for a range of greeting cards to champion Tree Aid.
Also, I can’t tell you excited I was to receive these examples of my cards which are due to sell through Karto in Finland! How totally cute! The Forest Folk love them!
We are really excited to be showcasing over 100 new greeting card designs, including Birthdays, New Baby, Valentines, Mothers Day and Fathers day and we hope to welcome lots of lovely visitors to our colourful stand in the launchpad section on LP25.
The Pulse trade show marks our first year in business and so it’s going to be pretty special! It’s been an exciting first year as DEER LITTLE FOREST has moved from being a greeting card company to a new and inspiring children’s brand.
We look forward to seeing you there!

A lovely little May feature for us in ‘Greetings Today’ magazine. The regional focus feature for the South West asked us about living and working in the New Forest. What can I say…. it’s so lovely, especially on a sunny Bank Holiday weekend 🙂
Wishing you all a very happy and sunny weekend where ever you are!

This week we’ll be leaving the little, green forest to visit the fantastic Top Drawer show in Earls Court, to have meetings, see friends and generally have a mooch around. I’m also excited to be preparing ideas for our 2nd Pulse show this week! We will be launching so many brand new designs, including Birthdays, New Baby, Valentines, Mothers Day and Fathers Day and we aim to design a stand as colouful and as magical as the last years!
This week I have also updated my little Etsy shop with new ‘Valentines’ cards, and even a ‘Get well’ card too, to send all you lovely people happy vibes on these chilly January days. If you’re anything like us and you’ve been suffering the colds and sneezes going round “Get well soon and Big Bear Hugs from the Deer Little Forest!”
