Five-Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway!

Thank you, everyone, for your lovely comments on my last post. It's good to know that there are still dedicated bloggers out there. Since that's the case, it's finally time to celebrate the five-year anniversary of this blog, which happened back in February - oops! 😃

Flossy and Sophie are modeling the prize:

I had a giveaway a few years ago that featured a sewing box like this one. That giveaway was very popular, so when I recently found this second one, I decided to give a sewing box as a prize again. Hope you like it! It is 1:12 scale and has a lid that opens and a drawer that pulls out. The box is made from wood.

To join this giveaway for a chance at the prize above, just:

1) Be a member of this blog or become one now using the Google Friend Connect gadget on my blog's right-hand sidebar.

2) Leave a positive comment on this blog post stating your intention to participate.

3) Not required, but very much appreciated: Please post this giveaway (with a photo and link back to this post) on your blog and/or Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, etc. For help in how to post a giveaway photo on your blog's sidebar, there are instructions here.

This giveaway will end Thursday, November 10, 2016, and I'll announce the winner on Friday, November 11, 2016. Thank you, and good luck everyone! Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer

Hello, Hello!

Hi All! I've missed each and every one of you. Sadly, just as Facebook has taken many people away from blogging, Instagram has done that for me. I've been creating stories with Blythe dolls there, and I'm starting to work Flossy, Sophie and Bluebelle into the stories now too. In case you're interested, I'm at

This blog allowed me to express an interest in plushies and miniatures that has now turned into a successful greeting card business. Along the way, I met amazing, sweet, and generous people and had a ton of fun. I'm grateful for all of it.

Back in January, I promised a blog giveaway. If there are still readers of this blog, there will be a giveaway. :-)

But first, Flossy and Sophie want to say hi. They're busy as always, having fun baking goodies in Cupcake Cottage. Here, they're taking a break from baking for a yummy snack, including bubble tea.

You may have noticed that there's been a change at Cupcake Cottage too! Sophie no longer hides the fact that she eats her natural diet alongside the amazing cupcakes and cakes that she and Flossy bake together:

Let's face it, we need both! Healthy with a sweet treat go hand in hand. Maybe Flossy will eat more salads now too! ;-)

I hope you're all well and having fun. Blogland is a wonderful place full of friendships that can last a lifetime. Big hugs! xoxo Jennifer
