My Top 12 of 2014

2014 had it's ups and downs; one of the ups was that a card was chosen to be published in the Craft Stamper February 2015 issue, it's out now,  you can find it at page 95. I'm eagerly waiting for the issue arriving to Sweden so that I can have a look myself. I guess it'll be a surreal feeling to find it there. I could never imagine that something I was inspired by at the bus home from work could end up in a magazine.
My dear friend died of cancer and Mum got the diagnos, you have to believe  in all things good here in life.
Remember and never forget.
Give thanks!
Enjoy life!

Enjoy Nature
You can't win them all!
Enjoy a cuppa and a choccie now and then!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  3. Maarit, I am so sorry to read your sad news, but please Maarit have positive thoughts about your mum. I am a great believer in positive thoughts. I went through Cancer treatment two and a half years ago and all the time I never once had negative thoughts as I feel they lead your head the wrong way and ones round feel them and it doesn't help. I made all my friends and family only think them, it help me get through the horrible days. Your cards are stunning and your message provoking and lovely. Sending you ((((((hugs)))))). Hazel xx
