My "Christmas To Come" Giveaway 2019 ...


Hello my dear friends,

it is a little later than usual but the time is here again!


It is time for my "Christmas To Come" Giveaway 2019!

 This year's giveaway will be my sixth one and for all of you that are first timers to this, this is what happens and why.

Let me start with the why I do this first ...

I love Christmas and I treasure the memories of Christmas when I was a little girl.
 I would wake up early and run to the Christmas tree on Christmas morning all excited to unwrap my presents. Oh, the joy of finding out what was hiding under that pretty wrapping paper! That is why I do this giveaway. I love to give someone that same feeling, even just only for a short moment, of being a child again on Christmas Day.

And now for the what you have to do if you wish to take part ...

Please follow me here at Todolwen and leave a comment on this post and this post ONLY.

 Then ... nothing for a while.

This July I will a winner and notify them.

The winner will receive a little gift for them to place under their Christmas tree, some time in late November/early December and just in time for Christmas Day. As in the past, the gift will be kept a secret until the winner has opened it on Christmas Day. This way the surprise will stay a surprise til the end.

Last but not least ...

What will the gift be?

As I am writing this, I myself don't even know what the gift will be. My past gifts have been creations I have handmade or just a collection of lovely bits and pieces to be creative with or both together. I

And now you all know how this works.

So feel like taking part? ~ You know what to do!
But please ensure you are not a "no-reply blogger". If you are, then make sure you add your email address to your comment otherwise I will have no way to contact you.

Thank you for visiting me today here at Todolwen and do come back some time again.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.

  8. What a lovely idea Karen. I remember as a child not being able to sleep on Christmas Eve and then being awake before day break. It was so exciting. The excitement fades as we age but I still love it. Thanks for the opportunity (I am in Australia so I may not be eligible and I understand if that is so). Kind thoughts.

  14. When I was a child we celebrated Christmas with just our immediate family as our extended family lived at a distance from us. This made Christmas a very personal and cherished memory for me. There was no waiting for late sleepers to wake before opening gifts. The first awake, woke everyone else up and Christmas Day began. I miss those days.

  45. Thank you for the chance to win Karen. This has been the roughest year in my life. My dear husband of 38 years died in January. He had been sick but we were not expecting anything like that. I still feel as though I am in shock some times. I really don't know how I will get through Christmas this year. I have my sweet grandchildren. One has been added since he died. She is a joy to this Grandmama. Thank you again. I love to look at all the things you come up with.
