“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

A New Year

Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
 I've been absent from my blog for so long it seems....we've had a bit of a struggle these past few months. Ive been ill since the end of October, with a cold that comes and goes, makes breathing quite difficult at times. Other things have also been going on that are both frightening and sad. 
What can I say, it was a rough year.
(A big thank you to the amazing lovelies that stuck around)
But I'm getting better, feeling hopeful and I'm anxious to get back into the land of blog once again.

 Lot's of people have an affirmation or word for the year,
But I can't decide on just one though..how about: 

or Glittery....
Maybe sweetness....?
oooh!I know!Magical-glittery-sweet-wonderful-fairyland!!
That's how I want my year to be.

Have you all picked your word or words?I'd love to hear them.

Happy New year to everyone, may this year be an improvement from last.
& may you achieve your own magical glittery sweetness!

See you soon,


  1. I was just thinking about you Marfi! I'm so glad to hear from you and to hear that things are getting better in your corner of this globe. I think my word for this year is going to be bravery, or brave. I want and need to be brave in my heart, my resolve, and mostly, my actions. I need to be my own hero (heroine). Okay, maybe the words would be glittery heroine with a brave heart and belief that I can act heroically for myself. This is nice. I like it a lot. Happy New Year art friend, hugs, Norma, x

  2. Hi Marfi!

    Happy New Year to you :)

    I'm so sorry about your cold you have been battling for the last several months.
    Having asthma, I tend to battle them out forever it seems.
    So, i feel for you and wished I could zap that cold bug away from you.

    I am so glad 2013 is past and I
    LOVE your words for 2013"


    Those words give me a smile and hope!
    Just the way I always feel when I leave from visiting you and your blog.

    Big hugs,

  3. Welcome back. I hope you are feeling better. I have definitely missed hearing from you in our little blog world. I hope 2013 is a better year for you. I like the word magical, because it seems to encompass so many things. :)

  4. THRILLED when I saw your name move up on my blogroll. Good to have you back, Marfi. Happy New Year...again. :)
    Out of the words you've shared my favorite is WONDER. There's so much mystery to it, isn't there? I think I'm going to borrow it as a favorite for 2013. ;) My word for this year is PERSEVERANCE. Let's see now, if I combine those two I think I shall persevere in wonderland. ;)
    Always good to visit with you, my friend.

  5. Ms. Marfi: So sorry to hear you have been ill for so long but it is wonderful to have you back here in blogdom. I love your choice of words....they hold hope and sparklies.....what more could one hope for?????

  9. Oh Marfi, I am so sorry you have been ill and that life has been testing your strengths. And look at you, up and being your beautiful self despite it all! It just goes to show you can never keep a fairy princess down, particularly when she is a warrior woman. It is so wonderful to hear from you sweetie. I hope 2013 brings you nothing other than Magical-glittery-sweet-wonderful-fairyland time. Love ya girl! Mina

  10. I do so hope you are feeling better. Being sick is horrible. I hate how it seems to rob us of time that would could spend with magical-glittery-sweet-wonderful-fairylands. :-)
    I love your word choice. I didn't choose one this year. So glad you are back in bloglandia!
