All About Todolwen And A Little About Me ...

Hello my dear friends,

I am sure that most of you know the very talented and lovely Michelle Palmer and her artwork.
She makes amazing drawings and also does watercolorings amongst other beautiful things and I am happy to say that I have a few small pieces of her artwork already.

Recently she started to make notepaper that is embellished with some of her lovely drawings and I was taken by how lovely it is. I was taken so much by it that I just had to contact Michelle about it. You see, when I sell any of my creations, I like to add a card with a few words thanking the person that bought my creation but seeing this notepaper, this is something I wanted from now on. I wanted something more personalized and that was all about Todolwen and a little about me and that is what I am now owning!

I now have my own very special and so lovey note paper made by Michelle. OK ... I don't actually have it just yet, it is in the mail as I am writing this post but the actual design is mine for ever. Once my neat note paper has arrived I will take a photo or two and share it with you upclose.

Here is a little preview of it and I am loving it so much already! 

This is the original and uncut design Michelle made for me.

I had asked her to incorporate things that are a part of Todolwen for the 'all year round' note paper and for a special little something for Christmas time with snowflakes and a little candle. (The snowflakes are the bit about me and my love for the snow.)

When I saw the design for the first time, tears came to my eyes. It was all about Todolwen and a little about me just like I had wanted it to be! It was beyond perfect and I am so happy. The all year round notes have a nest and ribbon, buttons and one of my strawberry pincushionsand  lace and pussy willow twigs. The Christmas one has many delicate snowflakes and a tiny burning candle that lives in a little tar tin which is resting on a pine tree branch. I couldn't have asked for more, it was like Michelle had looked inside my mind and saw what I was talking about. 


My dearest Michelle ...
 thank you so much for doing this for me and for making me very happy. 
You are such an amazing artist and such a lovely lady.


And now to you my dear friends, if you don't know Michelle Palmer, then it is about time that you get to know her. Why not pop over to her shop or blog and say 'hello' to her and see what beautiful things she creates.
