Golly gosh! Over 600 followers! Seems like yesterday that I hit the 500 mark. Thank you each and every one of you! I've said it before and I'll say it again, blogging has changed my life, I've "met" so many interesting, inspiring people since I started Kickcan & Conkers a year and a half ago. I am grateful for your loyalty, enthusiasm and creative energy. Thank You!
I really love the things that I post. I'm passionate about art, crafts, design and it's so satisfying to know that my finds are appreciated by readers around the world. When talented people like children's author/illustrator Charise Harper go to the trouble of making an animation to share their love for Kickcan & Conkers I am overwhelmed, and if the truth be known, a little teary eyed!

Un Grand, Grand Merci Charise!
And, as you know, "jamais deux sans trois", good things come in threes...
On a more official note, I found out a couple of days ago that the leading online trend-analysis and research service for the apparel, style, design and retail industries WGSN has chosen Kickcan & Conkers as one of the Top 20 Blogs for Kidswear Inspiration!
This is what WGSN had to say about their choice:
“There are a vast number of inspirational blogs for the kidswear market. But each of WGSN’s featured kidswear blogs provides a more focused view and insight into current trends for kids’ apparel, product and lifestyle. The Kidswear team chose blogs that offer clarity, a fresh perspective and effectively communicate and inspire.”
I am thrilled to bits to feature in this report alongside my friends at Pirouette, Fine Little Day, Bloesem Kids, Vintage For Kids, Ribambelles & Ribambins, Qu'rky Collective, Handmade Charlotte, Kenziepoo, Little Scandinavian, Bambino Goodies, Ohdeedoh and all the other fine blogs.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
