A New Little Christmas Music Box ..

Hello my dear friends,

the creation I am sharing with all of you Lovelies today took me longer than I thought it would and then a little longer for me to take some photographs of it. I had actually started to work on it several weekends ago. My daughters, one of their friends and I had a Christmas crafting evening at our house that went on until after 2 am in the morning and was so much fun.

 I already had the bottom part that I used leftover from a year or so ago, when I made my first music boxes. All it needed was the 'pretty part' which was the display. It unfortunately didn't get finished on our craft evening because the glue needed to dry much longer than I thought it would. In a way it worked out though because it was the perfect thing for me to take my mind off things on the first day of the cutting on our willow tree. At one point I wasn't very happy with my little frosty man but then I added one thing and that was it ~ I now loved him!

And here it is, my newest Christmas creation and just like many times before, I couldn't decide which photos to share, so I am sharing them all.

I have named this creation simply ...

'Merry Christmas'.

My little snowman has just put the first star onto the tree and is now thinking of where the second one should go.

I am so happy with my decision of giving my little frosty man a scarf made from crinkled seam binding ~ it made him beyond perfect in my eyes. And so you are able to not only see my creation but also hear my little music box, I even made a short video. It is not the best but I am sure you won't mind that at all.

Thank you for visiting me today here at Todolwen. I hope you have enjoyed your stay. Be sure to stop by from time to time again, you never know what I might just have to share.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
