In A Nutshell ~ Part 3

Hello my dear friends,

today I would like to share the third part of my 'in a nutshell' creations. It is a wee boat. I made many of these little things as a child but not as detailed of course. It was my daughter Ashleigh's idea to use my favourite poem for this creation and as you know of my love for the poem/lullaby of 'Wynken, Blynken and Nod' it seemed the perfect theme to use. I am 'over the moon' with the way this creation turned out because it is more than I would have wished for. When I look at it I find there is something special about this wee boat ... almost enchanting.

Again I took many pictures to share with you ~ I just wanted to make sure you don't miss a thing!

I hope you have enjoyed my latest creation today ~ I had so much joy in making it.

Last but not least ...

... there is another part, part 4, to my 'in a nutshell' creations but unfortunately I can not share this one with you until Valentines Day because I made this creation for my daughters Ashleigh and Caylagh.

So don't forget to pop back from time to time. This doesn't mean that there won't be anything new to see here at Todolwen in the mean time. I am trying to work on something every day or every other day. It helps me right now with everything that has happened and ...

... I am making Mum smile!

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.

    My aunt had the Wynken, Blynken and Nod book and it was a favorite when I was a little girl. I just did a search and found the book. Thanks for the reminder.
