A Little 'Christmas In July' ..

Hello my dear friends,

oh ... Christmas in July ~ how lovely!
I better be careful not to get too carried away and leave some Christmas creating for December!

Remember my tin egg creations I made for Spring/Easter?
 Whilst working on them I also made first Christmas creation for this year already and it was using one of my tin eggs as well. I so wanted to share it with you back then when it was finished right away but I decided to wait for 'Christmas in July' to do so and that is what today's post is all about.

This was the little preview I gave you before I turned it into a little Christmas creation.

It went from this ...

... to this! 

I called it ... 'A Frosty Christmas Morn'.

I love the way this creation came together ~ the tiny birds, the Swarovski crystal stars and everything else ~ perfect for this lovely Christmas piece and I hope you have enjoyed it!

And finally ... just to give you an idea how small the wooden birds are that I used ...

... so here is photo of them unpainted  ~ pretty tiny!

I am sure you all can all already guess that I am working on more Christmas ideas as I am writing this post and you are right. I am actually in midst of a very neat new project which has to do with an old ball jar of mine but that's all I am going to give away for now since it is still a creation in progress and I am not for sure if it will work out the way I hoping it will.

Whenever you have a spare moment, do stop by and visit me here again at Todolwen ~ it is always so nice when you do.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
