Whoops Of Joy From The Henries Finalists

“Oh bloody wow!” exclaimed Jo Wilson, founder of Dandelion Stationery on hearing that she had reached the finals in The Henries. “I’m absolutely, totally, utterly over the moon! I am lost for words and my hubby will confirm that does not happen often!” she added, one of the many very happy publishers who have been spreading the good news about making it into the finals of this year’s Henries awards.

Rhian Apgruffydd, founder of Gruff Pawtraits 

“I am so thrilled and of course so grateful for being nominated for this award!! The first time I’d ever heard of The Henries at The Ladder Club, I clearly remember thinking “I want one of those!” So, to come this close and actually get a nomination is reward enough for what I have put into this little business.”

Iain Hamilton, founder and creator of Bewilderbeest

“Well, knock me down with a ginormous feather! I am delighted, and slightly shocked, to be a finalist for The Henries – It’s more exciting than when I first found out about king-size chocolate bars! Hats off to all the other finalists, and top marks to the judges for recognising that I’d done my very best colouring-in!”

Hear it from Iain himself…

Rosie Harrison, founder of Rosie Made a Thing

Woohoooo! Over the moon to be nominated in four categories this year and so excited for the big night!  Thanks so much to everyone who voted for us.”

Bex Hassett of Bexy Boo

“OMG I couldn’t be more happy than I am right now. I am literally jumping! The Boo-anicals range originated from an idea during the first lockdown where my family and I were spending a lot of time in the garden marvelling at the amount of daisies and buttercups we had in our lawn. These little gems from nature sparked off the idea to add pressed flowers to a card and I have never looked back.

Thank you so much to all those that voted me, I am so grateful x”
