2015 Reflection…

 

Hello Everyone,

I want to say a few words and give some thanks before the end of 2015, one last post for this great year that in few hours is walking away! I wont be too long, since sadly I am sick with the Flu ;-(( really not a nice goodbye 2015!!!
I don’t even know how I got the Flu! Well that’s life and also if I am sick I will shine my light and be positive!
I became active posting on my Blog at the end of March 2015 and I am speechless for how much joy and happiness it brings to me every day and to see that in less than 9 months I received so much encouragement, inspiration and beautiful words, lots of compliments for my Art and ways I express my Creativity here!

Lots of Award Nominations thanks, this inspired me to create “The Starlight Blogger Award”  I created and launched this Award in May to highlight and Promote Inspiring Bloggers, I know it went a long way around the world from all the links I received! I am very proud of it!

Also I loved My over 40 weeks event every Friday a Meet and Greet and every Saturday I Feature an Inspiring Blogger this weekly event had a great success and give us the opportunity to get to know beautiful Blogs.

Thank you to all my loyal and great amazing Followers you guys are magic! Many of you turned to be great friends! Some of you I had the privilege to meet in person isn’t this all truly amazing???
Some things happened that I never expected or could have dreamt of. I also had the opportunity to came across great Artists otherwise impossible if wasn’t for my Blog.

I want to thank every single person that stopped by YesterdayAfter also if it was  only for one minute! I am so humbled and amazed that you took your time to look at my work leaving beautiful comments, they are all into my heart where I will cherish and treasure them forever!

Thank you to everyone that Custom Ordered and own my Jewelry  I hope that will bring you happiness every moment you are wearing it!

After only 9 months My Blog has close to “20.000” of Views, I cannot believe it has been visited by 108 Countries all over the world from so many people! Thank you very much, but like I always said it is not about the numbers…it is beautiful to know that my Blog travelled so much sharing my Art and bringing joy and light into the hearts of people! I can’t wait to see what will happen in the 2016 for all of us. I am not going to list any name you guys are so many and the ones that are really close to me you know who you are! I don’t want to miss anyone my love is always with you all! Please Send me some light so that I will get well soon…

Thank you so much for walking with me day by day during my journeys.

I wish you all a wonderful and Happy New Year!!!

Over the Hills…

Over the Hills

 

Over the Hills

Looking over the hills
I lose my sight in the beautiful horizon

the immensity of Mother’s nature
that I cannot hold

brings me back and lost
in memories of  beautiful places

so dear and
so far away
called home.

50 Words Story – Deep Water

64ec4179ffabbd4b6a5f9cac5768ea28

 

Deep Water

Surrounded by the blue deepest water. The reflections of floating emotions, loaded the mind and body in a fearless state. Tranquillity and silence flying through the broken branches of a life experience,
were glowing under the warm sunlight.
Suddenly warm rain drops of happiness joined the deep water becoming one.

Peace on Earth…

LOVE and LIGHT....

LOVE and LIGHT….

 

PEACE

a precious word I have been thought
from the day I was born

a word made of many words
a word made of many colors
a word made of many thoughts

a word to be shared

a word that rhyme with love
and acceptance

find harmony inside yourself
to walk peacefully during your life path
with enlightenment

love yourself to love one another
open your mind to freedom
and maintain it possible in this world.

 May Peace and happiness be yours this Christmas
and throughout the New Year!

This Is My War

I loved to read this post from my friend James Radcliffe …I am sure that every artist and creative can relate to it ! Have a wonderful day! ❤

I am smack-bang in the middle of the hardest part of my current project.

No longer the fresh excitement and boundless possibilities of the new, nor yet the fragrant and tantalising promise of completion, just the work; the seemingly endless and repetitive no-mans-land of the daily grind.

But still everyday I get up, brew my coffee, and get after it.

This post is about why.
