Happy New Year CE Friends! I hope you are all having an amazing start to the New Year!  Cheers to a happy, healthy, prosperous and creative New Year to us all.

We are having 2 challenges and you are welcome to enter both. Our monthly  challenge where you link up your project here to this post (details below) and a Facebook challenge. The Facebook challenge is a bit different. We would love to see how you use our chipboard, wood veneer and stamp products. Please share any new project (as of January 1st 2014 using at least 1 of our products)with us on our Creative Embellishments FACEBOOK Page by uploading your photo to our timeline and just add >>  #CEJAN14  << to the post. This is so we can easily find your project when randomly drawing a winner. The prize is a $20.00 gift voucher to our store. Every Friday we are going to feature your projects with our products on our blog so please share away!

January’s Challenge is an inspiration picture (below) with a twist of your wishes, hopes and dreams for 2014.   I try to pick out inspiration pictures with many different elements in it so you can be easily inspired. There is so much fun going on it this picture. You could be inspired by the shapes ( stars or circles), colors, or use glitter on your project like you see in the title. There are many elements to draw from. Most important of all HAVE FUN.







Nicolle here and one of my hopes for 2014 is that my hubby and I are a successful team. We want to make sure Creative Embellishments not only has unique high quality products but top notch customer service. Of course working together causes us to butt heads at times but we are both in it for the same reasons and have the same goals. We are working on many new ideas and hope this year will bring us tons of prosperity.

I also want to add we are always open to new ideas and suggestions and if there are any problems along the way we want open communication with our customers so we can fix or improve on any of the products.  We are human and we make mistakes. However we do not want any unhappy customers. There are many ways to contact us … through email (nicolle@creativeembellishmentsblog.com), Creative Embellishments Facebook and even my personal Facebook.  

Now here’s Doris’ take on the challenge:

Bright Future

For my example, I chose a photo of 2 of my children taken on the day I pulled them out of the local brick and mortar school after enrolling them into an online cyber school. This was done primarily to improve the quality of their education as well as removing them from an undesirable environment at school. My take on the challenge reflects my dream for a brighter future for my children. 😀
