It Is Already The New Year! ...

Hello my dear friends,

oh my ... it is already the new year!

Happy New Year to all of you Lovelies, may 2018 bring you nothing buy joy and happiness!

It seems to me that it has been a very long time since I have shared anything here on Todolwen but I must admit that the break was good for me. I have been somewhat busy and a little creative too and I have new things to share. Hopefully I will do so over this coming week, starting right away with today's post which is about my "Christmas To Come" giveaway 2017.

I was thinking of sharing this a few weeks ago actually, just before Christmas when the lovely Maggie received my gift in the mail and just couldn't stop herself opening it right away but I in the end I didn't get around to doing so after all. Again that will change right now because today I am sharing what I had chosen as my giveaway gift. 

To my surprise, it didn't take me very long this time to decided what the gift was going to be for my Christmas giveaway. It just came to me one day whilst I was sitting in my studio and there it was, resting on one of my shelves ... the perfect gift in my eyes.

This is what I chose ...

... it was one of my neat "Alice in Wonderland's" nests!

It was all wrapped with paper snow flakes and sent it on it's way. The lovely Maggie was so happy to receive it. She was happy and therefore I was happy and now I am already thinking of 2018's Christmas giveaway because I love doing this so much! So don't forget to keep an eye out for that post that will come some time soon about this year's giveaway. You might just be the one that will win it. And just so there is no confusion ... 

... please, only enter your name on the actual post with the title "Christmas To Come"giveaway 2018! 

Thank you all for taking the time to stop by today and visit me here at Todolwen. It is always so nice when you so and I hope you will come back soon again to see what I have been up too.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
