HELLO 2014

Another year over which was filled with enormous personal challenges, I had to make difficult decisions that I was not ready to make.  I took a huge step and made the tough decisions - I am positive that 2014 will bring positive results from these decisions.  I am truly blessed with close family and close friends who are family to have held me up during these times.  Heartfelt thanks to my angels - you know who you are ...................

From a creative viewpoint I have achieved something I feel is amazing - I entered the Scrapbooking Memories Masters Competition during an extremely stressful time in my life, I had been hospitalised, we were in the throes of moving house, and many more stresses at the time.   My dear friend Ebony supported my entry and kept me motivated to finish it and to mail it off.  
I was awarded an Honourable Mention for one of my projects that I submitted.  I was thrilled when I found out!   The first time I had ever entered the Masters competition and I received an HM!

I usually choose a word or a word usually chooses me for the New Year, but I have struggled to decide on 2014 word.

I have chosen my word for 2014 -


I need to be open to new ways of thinking in 2014 in a myriad of areas in my life.  

OPEN is my word for 2014

I would love to hear inspirational word for 2014............



  1. Love your chosen word Marelle - I hope 2014 is wonderful for you xo

  2. Hope 2014 is a much better year, your word is great! Lots of love xxx

  3. Good for you tough Mumma and congratulations, the HM is ace :D

  4. Well done on your HM.. I am looking forward to seeing all the entries in the next mag... Happy New Year too!

  5. May your new word open your mind and open many doors! All the best for the year ahead!
