A New Little Frozen Man Named Dickens ...

 Hello my dear friend,

today I am sharing my newest little frozen man with you and all I can say that it has taken me a while to get here but here I am!

He is made from white cotton batting and is a tradition little snowman. I have given him little dark coal eyes, a neat little carrot nose that is all frosted and glistening and vintage buttons live on his body. Crochet snowflakes made from sparkly scrubby yarn with clear glass beads have fallen from the sky and are resting happily on him. A large crochet snowflake and a pretty scarf made from strand of beautiful yarn are keeping him warm.

I can honestly say that he turned out sweeter than I thought he would and that makes me so happy. 

He started like this ...

... a simple 'frozen man' with a cute carrot nose that was all glistening.

The next step is to give him the gift of sight ...

At first I thought a little hat to keep his head warm was the way to go but in the end I changed my mind.

And now he is done! 
Here he is and I hoppe you like him.

His name is "Dickens" named after Charles Dickens and I think it suits him very well.

He will be for sale in my Etsy shop tonight at 7PM ET!  I know it's short notice for any one that is interested in him but I feel that I am already late with things.

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting me here at Todolwen, it is always so nice when you do.

I am already on to my next project, a custom order for one of my little snowmen from last year. I am also busy working on another one or two simular to Dickens. So stayed tuned ... hopefully I will be able to share them soon.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.

Fluffy, Puffy, Sparkly Snowflakes ...

 Hello my dear friends,

it's been a little while again, hasn't it?! 

What have I been up too? ... 

Well, our basement renovations were and are still on and off and instead of weeks, they have turned into months now. Then they had come to a complete stop for a few reasons, one of them because I had gotten COVID and obviously didn't want anyone in our house and also needed the peace and quiet to rest. I am testing negative since three weeks now and thankfully it wasn't too bad but the after effects are still somewhat there which includes being tired a lot and just having not much energy for anything. I am trying to do more these days and slowly but surely it's happening including being creative which is the best part.

I had started to work on a little something before I got sick and was now able to finally finish my idea and that is what I am sharing with you today!

I just LOVE snowflakes so of course I made neat fluffy, puffy, sparkly snowflake ornaments! 

To me they almost look like sparkly and glistening snowflake maccaroons! 

They are also very versatile again. They can decorate your Christmas tree, be a emblishment for a gift or wreath, hang in your window and again once you are done with them, they are perfect to scrub your dishes!

My snowflake ornaments are now listed in my Etsy shop as a custome made item. Why not pop over and take a look?!

Oh yes, I have also relisted some of my other Christmas pieces today. My crochet sparkly snowflake 'trees' from last year are back again ... 

... and my little apples and pear ornaments are also available ...

And this little fellow ...

... is also listed again and he is my last one like this.

Talking about little frozen men, I am working a new design right now and here is a sneak peek for you!

I am making little carrot noses sparkle!

So that's all for today. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, it is always so nice when you do. I hope you have enjoyed your short visit here at Todolwen and I am looking forward to your next one.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
