It Is Giveaway Time ...

Hello my dear friends,

... it is giveaway time here at Todolwen!
(I still can't believe I forgot my 2 year blogging anniversary ~ silly me!)

Over these last few days I have sat down and put some thought into what I could present to you as my giveaway gift and I was successful, which made me happy.
 
I have put together some treasures for one of you lovely bloggers that will be picked by one of my daughters.
 
Since I love you being creative I have not only made a creation for this giveaway but I am also including something for you to create and these are the gifts I have chosen ...
 
 
My millinery head pattern ...
 
 
 
... which includes the pattern for the pincushion as well ...
 
 
... and my scissor pouch tutorial.
(You will receive both of my PDF~patterns via e-mail.)
 
And via the good old fashioned mail service you will receive the following too ...
 
  
... I made some of my little flutter~bys for you and ...


... I am also adding some of my lovely vintage lace too.
  
And last but not least I also created a new 'Heart~Felt' for this giveaway.

 
It is my Dream Heart~Felt.
  
 

 

 
Every time you look it should remind you to never stop dreaming! 

And those are my giveaway gifts for one of you lovely bloggers.

Oh, dear I almost forgot something again or didn't I? ... You can take part in this giveaway from all over the world and it would be nice if you were a follower but it isn't a must.

Now if you wish you can leave a comment on this post and a name will be picked on February 11th ~ I am not sure at what time though.

I would love to hear from all of you and it would be so nice if you were to visit me here at Todolwen sometime soon again.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day,


Karen B.

  5. Hi Karen, congratulations on your two years!! I am so glad I have found you and I am a happy follower thru email. I have made your nest (yours looks so much better-my yarn wasn't 100% wool, so didn't felt properly), I also have small tins to make your pincushions, but oh would I dearly love your gifts if I am chosen. Thank you for sharing your ideas and your gifts for your give away.

  7. Hi Karen, Congratulations!! I just found you recently, and am following you thru email. I have made a nest from an old sweater sleeve, (thanks for the instructions)and plan to make another one after I get to town and buy yarn like you have used. Yours is just so amazing! Also, found small tins to make some pin cushions like yours. Your creations are amazing and I would dearly love to be the winner of your hand-made gifts. Oh, pick me, pick me!!! Thank you for sharing, being an inspiration and your give away.

    Thanks to the lovely "FlowerLady".

    Your blog is inspiring, in case you haven't heard,

  62. Wow! Two years! Congratulations! Yours is one of my favorite blogs; I love all of your creations and the tutorials. That's why I follow you via email in case I forget to go online and check your blog while there. I never miss a post!

    Someday I am going to learn crochet so that I can make my own little flowers, flutter~bys, etc! In the meantime, I sure would love some of your flutter~bys! I have made your pretty little paper flowers and placed them in a silver salt shaker. They reside on top of my piano. They are so very pretty!

    I am always pleased by your tutorials - you do a good job of explaining, and the photos are such a help.

    Your giveaway will truly be a gift to whomever receives it. I would love to win it, so count me in.

    Your squirrels are very different than the ones we have in Wyoming. Ours are a light brown. Are your squirrels black or just very dark brown? I am glad you are enjoying them.

    Thanks for all you do,

  77. Hello,
    Just wanted to say thank you for uplifting my spirits with your beautiful blog. After losing my Beautiful Mother and Precious Sister both from Breast Cancer in these last few months, I have been to sad to do anything really. I was greatly inspired by your Wee Birds and Beautiful crochet flowers and butterflies. I am going to make some I think and would like you to remember, that you just never know what little things you do that may touch someone elses life, without even knowing it. For this...I thank you. For all the good you do and joy you bring to others, no matter what, you are the truth. A kind and gentle spirit.
