Congratulations!!!
Without doubt the daughter beats the top, no contest. But she is getting a very early start in the art!

I'm getting a top for Chrismas,  which I bought online at trompos space.
Since my father gave me the money from my grandfather,  who died,  I decided to buy something he would be proud of too.
So, after some time on the world wide web,  I got this one!



It would be a while till it gets to Belgium,  but it arrived today,  the Day before Xmas eve  :)
My mom made it into a beautiful gift,  stored in a small box , gift wrap ...
But she said it should be a suprise,  even for me,  so I was not allowed to look  >:(
Luckely,  tomorrow Xmas eve.  We have a feast at my grandmother's home.  Then the presents!   :D
We will have a great time together :)
 I wish you all a Merry Xmas and a happy , healthy 2020!
Picture of my own coming soon !

Thank you  ;)

Today is a great Day! Not only it's Chrismas eve,  but the package I got from Chris Neff also arrived!
I can only discribe it as a box full of awesome-ness ;D
It was worth the long wait,  and when I opened up the box ...



One of the greatist gift ever ! Together with Larry D's gift  :D (Not in picture )
I can't thank you enough  :)
I sure will have a GREAT time practicing and having fun!
Many warm greets,
Jolien

I had  a great Chrismas eve,  and I love  my top!

When I opened it, there was a very tiny piece off of the inner cap. But I don't think it will affect play  :)
Love it! 


My sister also had a great gift for me.  A bag for storing my tops!



She designed the image herself.   :D

Congratulations on all your holiday presents! You've got tops, a place planned out to practice indoors, and such a cool bag. Your sister has an eye for design, I really like it. New year, new tricks. Have fun.

Nice present!
Spintop in Basque language is Ziba.
But I'm pretty sure that top was manufactured by Can-Cels of Barcelona, so it's actually a Baldufa (spintop in Catalan).
