Happy New Year Drynoseblog readers. Yes, its not quite as new as it was a couple of weeks ago but it wouldnt be right if I didnt send you this January greeting, so Happy New Year.
Well, the Christmas decorations are down and back in the loft for a few months, and here at Drynosedog we are raring to go. Fresh faced, bushy tailed and fully rested after a lovely break, we have a long list of newness waiting to happen. First of all, we have updated the website (Im hoping that you like it, but its about the best I can do with my limited technoloy ability) The webstore is full to bursting and our postage charge is now just £3.50 for as many items as you wish to buy.
Next, we have published photos of our newest range- Hector and friends. As many of you know already (as so many of you have bought one) we brought out a tealight last year with a little painted robin on it who goes by the name of Hector. (He was inspired by our friends tame garden robin who visited her for mealworms and suet treats) This was quite a new thing for us, as most of our designs are created using just paper, only using paint for really fine details and finishing touches (Hedgehog spikes, duck bills, sheep legs etc!) The base colour of the tealight is still paper, but the design is all paint. The design was so well received, we expanded and introduced a few friends for Hector. We hope you like them and we hope to add a few more to this range over time.
The studio has been cleared of all the chaos that the run-up to Christmas brings, and it needs to be, as we are going to be working flat out again soon to refill the shelves of all our lovely stockists. I think its going to be a busy few weeks settling back into the day to day running of Drynosedog, and getting ready and organised for 2016. We have also started the process of applying for fairs and markets and should be hearing back from organisers very soon, and as soon as we get confirmation of events, we will let you know. Follow us on Facebook to be the first to find out where we are going to be this year.
