DyaniAU is taking a short break


Note from shop owner The Little Deer Studio shop is currently closed, while I focus on building my future home (in a bus LOL!) which I need to finish soon.
I will be relaunching under the name "DYANI" in November 2022 with more journals and lots of new goodies too.
In the meantime, please send all enquiries to dyani [!at] dyani.com.au

Stationery with Soul

There's something magical about a handmade book that can stir the senses and inspire the imagination - the texture of the handmade paper, the feel of the stitching, the smell of the ink, the sense of connection to the maker, the promise of the empty pages and wonder at the stories and images they may come to preserve...

But Little Deer Studio is about so much more than just beautiful handmade books.

It’s about giving you the space to take time out from our fast-paced, high-pressure world. Time for you - to slow down, to reflect, and just "be". Whether you want to express yourself through art or writing, remember an amazing holiday, preserve treasured family recipes, or simply reflect on events of the day, it's about focussing on what's important to you. Creating your own story.

And because all my journals and notebooks are handcrafted using recycled and sustainable materials, they're not only good for your soul, but good for the Earth as well.
