I´m finally Back and with a GiveAway

 I´m finally back.
My internet connection is up and running again
You just can´t image how hard these last 11 days
have been or maybe you can.
Not been able to connect with anyone.
Not being able to visit you all.
I feel so out of the loop

It´s amazing how lost you can been
with no internet - what did we do before....


In the meantime I have reached 500+ followers
isn´t that amazing.
I still can´t believe this
and I´m so truly honoured
that so many wants to pop in here
and visit me and my humble little studio.

I want to show my gratitude
to you all and have been working
on a giveaway to celebrate this.

A sweet little altered project
using an old music sheet

a little bit of vintage lace

and a wonderful vintage glove

 used as a pocket

If you´re a follower of mine
and if you would like to win this,
all you have to do is
leave a comment on this post
and I´ll draw a winner on

February 1th

Thank you so much everyone
for visiting over here.
Sending you all lots of hugs and love
and wishing you all a wonderful day
