Slowly But Surely ..

Hello my dear friends,

I am slowly but surely going to get back into blogland and I can 't believe that I have fallen so far behind with posts that I wanted to share these past weeks so I better get my typing fingers on and get working on it.

My laptop isn't fixed properly yet, just temporarily made-do so I can use it while I have to wait for the new keyboard to arrive but at least I can work a little on creative things now and share some things with all of you that have been going on starting in the next few days so do visit me again here at Todolwen, I can't wait to tell you all about what I have been up to.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

have a peaceful and creative day.

I Am 'Computer-Less' ..

Hello my dear friends,

I am so sorry that instead of me sharing something that I have created recently, the reason for this post today is to let you know that I am now 'computer-less'!

 My laptop had started to go crazy two days ago and wouldn't stop scrolling as soon as it was turned on so it had to finally go in for repairs today. All my photos are on my lilac baby and therefor I won't be able to share any of them with you today either and I have a few nice ones that I am sure you would all love, but I will do so on a later date. I am not sure when my laptop will be done ~ I should find this out in the next few days. My younger daughter is so sweet and she will let me check my emails and maybe write a short post like this one in between on her laptop until I have mine back.
I would like to remind all of you about my 'Christmas To Come' giveaway and that there is still time to enter your guess and name. I am hoping to have my laptop back in time for my giveaway and I am also going to be ready in time for this years 'Where Bloggers Create' ... so fingers crossed!
Other than that everything is well here at Todolwen so until hopefully soon ...
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.

So Thoughtful ..

Hello my dear friends,

I recently received several messages from some of you sweet bloggers asking if I was OK.
Firstly, thank you so much for being so sweet and thoughtful and for being concerned about me ~ I love you for that! Unfortunately I can't get in touch with some of you because you are a 'no-reply blogger'.

Secondly ... yes,  I am OK, just very busy. So much is going on and on top of everything, my poor laptop in need of repairs as well. I am working on reorganizing and de-cluttering our entire house and garage and will hopefully be finished soon. There has been a tiny bit of time where I have been able to do two quick creative things but there isn't really time at this moment to actually sit down and start and work on a new project and there is also almost no time to blog neither right now.

 I have much to share about what has been going on and I will hopefully will be able to put 'pen to paper' or rather 'fingers to keyboard' soon and tell you all about it, so do stop by soon  again and visit me here at Todolwen again some time ~ I always love it when you do!
For today I will leave you with some flowers (and a weed) from our garden and a huge hug from me to all of you.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

When Unwell ~ Rest!

Hello my dear friends,

my advice to all of you ... if you are feeling unwell, please take the time to rest and get better.

Something I should have done myself. After I felt a little better with my cold/flu, I so wanted to quickly get into work mode again. Instead of taking it easy I worked very hard moving furniture from one level of the house to another (on my own) and right after that I decided to cut the front and back lawn and doing so power walking (I know, a silly thing to do) which put me right down and out for the next few days and sicker than I was before. I hope a lesson learnt for myself. Right now I am getting better and the aches and pains are getting less. 

One good thing about having to sit and rest is that I have finally decided on what I am going to be making for my 'Christmas To Come' giveaway and I have already started working on it. I must say it is looking so lovely ... festive and beautiful!


So for all of you that haven't entered their name and answer to my question (which you will find by clicking either the link under my giveaway button above or on my right sidebar) there is still time!
Spread the word and tell everyone about it too! My giveaway has only one little rule and that is that it would be nice if you were a follower of Todolwen and maybe you will become the winner of my little Christmas surprise?!

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
