Sunshine, drawings and a lamb.

Everything has been all go since we returned home from our wedding and honeymoon! We had such a lovely and special day - the sun even managed to come out despite the forecasted rain! 

Here we are getting confetti thrown at us! such a fun day with lots of great memories.
Donald the lamb - our guest of honour! He was being hand reared by a relative so he came along to join in on the celebrations!

After the honeymoon I definitely came home feeling refreshed and ready to crack on with W&A. I started by adding more designs to the new mug collection, which are now all available from http://www.whinberryantler.com/product-category/homeware/ceramics/. You will also see that Whinberry & Antler Greetings Cards are available to buy too. These are blank for your own special message and printed onto FSC rated card by a British company. Finding the right supplier for these was a little tricky, but I got there in the end.

Creative Thursdays have also been very productive recently. If you follow W&A on Facebook or instagram (http://instagram.com/whinberryantler) you will have had a sneak peek at the drawings I have done. The hare in particular has had a great response, so a really big thank you to everyone for your likes and feedback - it is always so lovely and motivating to get such positive comments and certainly one of my favourite parts of the job.

Really looking forward to getting these onto a screen to get creating!

Whilst I am writing about instagram, I recently came across Benjamin Hole. If you do not know him already, he posts the most beautiful photos of working life on his farm and I would highly recommend taking a look - http://instagram.com/benjaminhole. The website for the farm is also beautifully designed and very inspiring - www.holeandsons.com

Country Living Magazine have just launched their very own general store this week. Similar to notonthehighstreet.com, this is a great place to find unique and high quality gifts and lifestyle products. And I am delighted to say that Whinberry & Antler is one of the featured sellers this week - so thank you very much to them for featuring us! http://www.countryliving.co.uk/homes-interiors/interiors/country-living-general-store , it's well worth a look.

Well, I had better get back on with some work - I have a couple of shop orders to sort out, including one for Simon King Wildlife who will be taking W&A products to Bird Fair this August - a great show for anyone who likes wildlife!
