Jewelled hearts

Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.
George Bernard Shaw

Happy 2012 lovelies!
Hope you've all had a great time celebrating and relaxing. I spent a rather quiet but cozy time with my family, and it was just the right thing to do. It rains buckets here and i still feel like staying in bed, but i played a bit with jewellery and my camera, to add some brightness and cheerfullness to the start of a new week and a new year. This week is dedicated to imagination, visualizing, planning and setting things in motion - have you made any plans yet, for the new year ahead?

    and that all your dreams come true!

    A big hug,


    I so hope that this new year will bring you health and much joy Martina! I think I am finally FINALLY over that dreaded cold of mine, but rest is truly the key! TOmorrow I go back to school and I just can't believe that!!! LOVE THIS IDEA with the beads and the heart, and of course, the IMAGINATION. What would we do without that outlet.

    I am looking forward to a year of great growth. Be well my dear friend, Anita

  4. Love the hearts and all the imaginative creativity that goes along with these beauties! I spent a quiet time with my family too on New Year Eve.

    May 2012 be full of JOY and lots of laughter, liebe Freundin.

  9. Oh my dear Martina,

    I am so sorry that you still do not feel well. I know that this "bug" is going all around and many of my friends are still so sick. I cannot believe that my NOSE IS STILL RUNNING! I am no longer sick, but it is very annoying!

    Well dearest, tomorrow I go back to school. AHHHH! I am not ready. I love the coziness of my house!


  10. Imagination is the beginning of a creation! Such lovely words and good ideas to start a New Year!

  11. I have been doing a lot of daydreaming and wishing for the new year myself. I had a week off of work and it's hard to go back tomorrow. However, I feel excited to begin anew and set some intentions for my creative life and personal life. I'm turning 40 in two weeks so I just feel like I'm really entering a new chapter.

    Happy New Year, Martina!


  12. So itching to do something creative! It's coming too! It has been far too long. I don't know if you are on Pinterest but if you are like me, you have pinned lots of ideas (I'm sure you have your own creative ideas too!)
    Happy New Year!

    We are making a few plans for the New year,,some traveling to visit family, hopefully. And family visiting with us. I plan to create a little more with painting, sewing, and to continue to learn to crochet.

    Your jewelry hearts are wonderful. Thank you for always inspiring me!

    Blessings for a wonderful week!
