A Part Of Us ...

Hello my dear friends,

I had planned on making a neat Christmas blog button with a grab box for last Christmas already and for some reason I just couldn't make it work at all and in the end I just gave up (sad I know), saved the image I had worked on and left it as that. But ...

... I returned to it this year and low and behold ... it worked this time!
 (I hope?!)

This was the image I had decided to use. 
It was an old Victorian Christmas card image I had fallen in love with and when looking at it the words just were suddenly there and made it perfect or so I thought.

Last year Google had this neat thing going, where they would add falling snow to some of your pictures and then send them to you again and that is what they did to the image I had chosen for my blog button.

And now it is perfect!

Just take a look at it!

Isn't it just magical?!

And you know what ... a part of us will always believe!

Thank you Google for making my button the neatest one ever and ...
... I wish you a Merry Christmas!

If you like my Christmas button and wish to place it onto your blog you can! 
You will find the code under the image on my right sidebar. 

Thank you for taking the time and visit me here at Todolwen again ~ it is always so nice when you do.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
