Sweet Lady To My Rescue

Hello my dear friends,

I am sure you have noticed the new look of Todolwen!!!! And I hope you love it as much as I do! I have to thank the amazing Karen Valentine for this great look. She is my saviour!!

 My blog had run into a major problem which would not allow you to view it properly anymore it just came up in squares. I was so worried! I am not a computer/blog person really. I can do the basics and that's about it. My dear friend Dawn  from 'The Feathered Nest' told me to contact Karen and I must say ~ this lady is AMAZING!!! She not only fixed my problem but she gave my blog a makeover that has made me love it even more. Thank you so much Karen, I don't know what I would have done without you.

Karen at 'My Desert Cottage' makes beautiful creations and she is also a blog designer and "fixer" so if you ever run into any problems with your blog, she is the one to contact! If you don't know her wonderful blog already, you should really go and visit!

And here are her websites ...

And last but not least ...

I am still sick in bed with a very nasty cold/flu, resting as good as I can. Unfortunately my creating is on hold right now and I am hoping to feel better very soon since I would love to do a tiny bit of Christmas creating  before Christmas is over.

I hope you are all well, keeping warm and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
