Three!

   
That's right! Three years ago I decided I needed to do something more creative, more me, so I typed those first words "Saperlipopette!" and Kickcan & Conkers went live. What a fun journey it has been!

Another 2,800+ posts and K&C is still going strong. Of course, blogging has changed a lot in that short space of time, and I have spread my wings... You will also find 'me' chatting, curating and sharing on twitter, facebook, tumblr, flickr and pinterest (which I love!), in addition to running an online shop.

I would like to say thank you for reading, commenting, sponsoring and supporting me. Un grand merci !  Blogging has changed my life in many ways (Repetitive Strain Injury might be one of them!), and I have met many wonderful, inspiring people both online and off.

Jess Quinn, doll-maker extraordinaire, was one of the first really original, outstanding artists I wrote about. I have followed her progress ever since and try to promote her work whenever I can. She is incredibly talented and hard-working, I'm sure you'll all agree. Jess has very kindly offered one of her new Molly Dolly dolls to celebrate these first three years and I think Honey Bee makes a perfect thank you present from K&C.



If you would like a chance to win this charming, purple-haired young lady, standing 20" tall and dressed in vintage cotton clothes, please leave me a comment below. The usual drill applies, anyone who relays the information via twitter, Facebook, pinterest, etc will get two names in the hat, providing they let me know!  This three-year thank-you giveaway ends on Monday 9th July, 6pm CET.

Good Luck!

  9. I have been following your pins for a while now - love the way you see the world. Your blog is darling... I live vicariously through you as it has been a profound dream of mine to live in the south of France since I was a child and learned of my family's heritage. I am an artist and seamstress with two little girls and am inspired almost daily by the items you collect/share/sell... Here's to three years!
