Butterfly Blogaversary Candy


This is a sticky post until midnight BST, 30th June.  Normal crafty service continues below!

Hello all!  Yes, unbelievably it's my 2nd anniversary here at Words and Pictures.  And, although we've been taking a dollshouse detour this week, I still wanted to celebrate.  (Would love you to check out the Tudor Tavern, the Opera Singer's House and the Dollshouse Gallimaufry if you haven't already seen them.  Or if you're new here, you'll get an idea of some of the more normal crafty stuff here.)


I feel so lucky to share in all the generosity and creativity of Craftyblogland.  Your comments and feedback are a constant source of joy, and the inspiration I find from travelling from blog to blog is immeasurable.  I only wish I could give candy out to every single one of you to thank you for your company on this amazing journey!

But no, my thanks and love go to all of you, but the candy can only go to one... so please simply leave a comment here if you would like to be included in the draw.  This sticky post will stay at the top of the blog until the end of June, when I'll pick the winner out of a hat.

It's NOT compulsory to join up as a Follower - though if you like the work you see here, then it would be lovely if you did (would be so thrilled to hit 500!) - and while it would be great if you shared the candy photo and link on your blog or sidebar, that's not compulsory either.

Thank you so much for everything and good luck!


Every day is a birthday; every moment of it is new to us; we are born again, renewed for fresh work and endeavour.

  51. Hello Alison, I am settling in and have time to visit, so I noticed after all the time I have admired your work I never became your follower! lol now you are at 489 so close! Those doll houses are amazing, I see so much love in them and your mom must really enjoy the help. I love the different decor and the Indian one is really awesome with the gilded box. I am not a fan of snakes so I would have to skip that room but the authenticity of your creations are spot on. Thanks for sharing, so fun to see.
    I love everything Alison so that is why I am going to display your candy! A very happy anniversary to you and thank you for the candy opportunity.
    Have a great day, I need to look at what else I missed here.

  61. It seems like only a moment ago when we were last celebrating your first anniversary, where has that past year flown to I wonder.
    Alison, as we knew, with a talent such as yours, the craft world was your oyster, knowing that companies would be knocking on your door, wishing you to be on their DTs or as Guest Artist because of the way you inspire every single time.
    It will be wonderful to view what your next crafting venture will be and with whom and of course.
    Thank you for your beautiful, inspirational blog and thank you for such a generous giveaway. I doubt I will be so lucky but please, count me in as it would be incredible to win.
    Wishes

  80. Sweet Alison, I overcame my present blog-lazyness only to congratulate you to your 2nd anniversary. And even though I have been following you through bloglovin, I will certainly help to make you reach your 500!
    Since my discovery of your blog and following you on all your creative journeys, I have been a constant admirerer. Not only of your art, which is extraordinary in all its facets and daily inspiration for myself. But I admirer your generosity of sharing all those bits and pieces leading to the final, artistic piece of art! You have certainly helped many of us to find out what to do with this structure paste or that crackle paint. Thank you so much for all those how-to's which help us others to transfer our ideas onto real material! And then, again, thank you soooo much for those verbal pieces of art which I am never tired to search at the end of your posts!
    And now, let's celebrate, dear Alison! And let me accompany on your future artistic and spiritual journey! Hugs, Manu

Thanks for all the sweet comments on my blog and about my Nihongo (Japanese) - I lived and worked in Japan for 7 years - I picked it up a little!

I so often see your little photo in the comments on many of the blogs I visit and wonder how you find the time. The haul of blog candy you have put together is wonderfully generous and I'm sure is a reflection of your very generous nature. So thank YOU Alison for inspiring so many of us and long may you continue to do so !!!! Xxx
