R.I.P. My loved Grey

 

R.I.P. Grey Love 6_9_2017

R.I.P. My love Grey! ❤️
I am coping with one of the saddest day, my beautiful and sweet Dutch Bunny “Grey” passed away unexpected last night 6/9/2017. He was only 3 years old and was coping with an abscess near his jaw discovered 2 weeks ago, abscess is a common condition in rabbits but very difficult to treat without surgery,  at the moment for the past week he was under antibiotics shots treatment before decide for a surgery.  Until yesterday morning he was doing pretty well. Last evening something happened that we don’t know he had his shot and he started to develop a condition and eventually complications and passed away during the night! I am very sad, I loved him very much he gave me so much happiness during these 3 years that it is hard to explain. The beautiful bond and unconditional love I was able to experience with him, is something I will never forget and would be always inside me! Today I miss him very much and he took a piece of my heart with him… ❤

I Love You Grey

 

Unconditional Love

 

I will love you forever Grey!

Thank You!

Golden Sky – Photography ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone,

today I am celebrating a special day for me, something that I would’ve imagined was ever possible! Two years ago I started this Blog in connection with the opening of my first Etsy shop for the launch of my Jewelry designs collections. Yes today is “YesterdayAfter two Years Blog Anniversary!” ❤ So much has happened during these two years lots of new experiences, lots of art,  lots of amazing connections only possible because this Blog. So much appreciation and encouragement I have received from all of you that follow me and so much encouragement I have the opportunity to give  to support, inspire and motivate others that crossed my path here, it is so beautiful! Having this Blog became part of daily life there is so much work behind it but I love every minute. This is my open window to the world, the opportunity to fly and share my art , my photography, my poetry and everything I am doing in all my creative ways.

Congratulations on getting 1,000 total follows on YesterdayAfter!
Your current tally is 1,004.

 

Two days ago I received from WordPress the message of this beautiful milestone of 1000 Follows today are already more. I cannot believe it! I would love to have all the 1000 in one place, it is lots of you and I truly want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, without you all this wouldn’t be possible! Thank you for taking your time whenever you stop here to see or read what I post,  thank you for leave me your beautiful comments and thank you for your amazing blogosphere friendship!
It is not about any number, I am very grateful for each one of you that from time to time showed a presence and that presence is telling me “I am here I like what you’re doing” this it is a great motivation for me and keep me going! I also want to thank everyone that purchased my creations supporting my art and my dream, it means the world to me since I am an independent full-time artist and will not be possible without your support! During the two years I have come across a wonderful group of artists and  together we are the “world watercolor group is nice to do challenges together, I have participated to beautiful worldwide art challenges like the World Watercolor Month, InkTober when I created my character ©Ylia and many more. I came across great Literary and Anthology Press and I had several of my poems and short stories published, also I have participated to Poets For Peace and have my poem “Peace” published in their Anthology. I am so happy about that.  Thank you to everyone that featured my Blog and interviewed me I am so grateful! I loved to Feature Blogs and inspiring people and once in a while lately I am interviewing other inspiring artists, bloggers, music composers I will keep doing this. As today I have more than 500 posts, 11.000 of comments and close to 50.000 views it’s amazing. I only mention these numbers to inspire new Bloggers that here great things are possible there are many of my blogger friends that have numbers way bigger than mine and I repeat is not about the numbers, but about your passion to love what you’re doing and that passion shows and shine out and that is what matter, love what you do no matter what if you have 1 follower or 50,000, keep spread love, shine your light and inspire others!

Stay connected and have a great weekend!

MY VERY FIRST POST – #MYFIRSTPOSTREVISITED

My First Post Revisited!

My First Post Revisited!

MY VERY FIRST POST – #MYFIRSTPOSTREVISITED

A tag started by a blogger/writer called Sarah Brentyn, asking us to revisit our first ever blog posts! ❤

I have been invited by two of my dearest friends here on the blogosphere my dear blog brother Syl65′ and my dear blog sister Erika Kind they both tagged me for this challenge! I thought that was very kind of them thinking of me and what a great way to look back and see how all this amazing time started. Actually It is almost two years ago that I started blogging, to be precise it was the end of March 2015! Soon this month would be my second Blog Anniversary!!! I remembered that my first post was about my Jewelry, that was one of the reasons my Blog was born, to launch one side of my art, my Jewelry Design Collections! I went to look back and found my very first post written on March 24, 2015 only few words, one of my photos and a shy  update announcement! After two years my Blog forged and developed greatly in something complete that reflects what I am. My Blog became also a showroom of all my Art ways, form and expression of my creativity and inspirations. A place of my own that I love so very much, a place where I can share with all of you. A special thanks goes to all my dear followers and friends that supported and encouraged me during these two great years! Thank you!

❤ Here it is my very first Blog Post:

New Update!

New update “Jewelry Portfolio” is a gallery showcasing my work, I will keep updating!
I am now up working on new designs for my  “Among Nature Jewelry Collection” and on some custom orders.   Soon my Etsy shop would be open!

Thank You!

 

Here we come to the rules:

Obvious rules:

  • No cheating. (It must be your first post. Not your second post, not one you love…first post only.)
  • Link back to the person who tagged you (thank them if you feel like it or, if not, curse them with a plague of ladybugs).

Other rules:

  • Cut and paste your old post into a new post or reblog your own bad self. (Either way is fine but NO editing.)
  • Put the hashtag #MyFirstPostRevisited in your title.
  • Tag…um…tentwotwelve five (5) other bloggers to take up this challenge.
  • Notify your tags in the comment section of their blog (don’t just hope they notice a pingback somewhere in their spam).
  • Feel free to cut and paste the badge to use in your post.
  • Include “the rules” in your post.

Completely silly rules that I’m making up as I type:

  • Drink a glass of wine, bottle of beer, cup of coffee, mug of herbal tea or whatever floats your boat after you hit “publish”. (In other words, toast yourself. Go you!)
  • Read the post out loud in a Mickey Mouse voice.


Here there are my tag choices:

❤  Miriam

❤  Mark Lanesbury

Jodi McKinney 

Joleene Naylor

Just Plain Ol’ Vic


You are by no mean obligated to participate but if you do would be a fun way to look at your Blog growth and transformation!

Thank you again Syl and Erika for including me in your Tag it was fun to look back to the beginning!

Love you all!

Carolina

Goodbye to Meet And Greet Fridays!

Digital Art - Light And Darkness ©Carolina Russo

Digital Art – Light And Darkness ©Carolina Russo

If you made it here please read

Sadly after more than two years of this great weekly event “Meet And Greet Fridays…” I came to the decision to suspend it for now. Lately l have seen that there is not much participation anymore, like it used to be. We used to have great time every weeks full of Blogs and their links left here. I noticed that observing the past few weeks, fewer people came here, very few left a real link to their Blog in the comments, mostly only left a “Like” without any word or comment related to their own blog! How new bloggers are supposed to know who you are without a link and few words. Today only four lovely people came here to leave their “like” and I appreciate them very much.  I take time to make this post every week, and I make sure to share the event on other social media platforms to make it successful for you! I made this weekly event for you to be able to connect, engage and meet others here in the “Community ” I also made this especially for the New Bloggers so that they don’t feel lost and lonely on the blogosphere. We all know how hard it is in the beginning to find, friends and followers and be able to find an audience interested in what you write and what your blog is all about. It is almost scary when you are new here and nobody reads your blog because nobody knows that exist. You all are the ones that can make this event successful with me and if there is not participation or interest to share your own blog, then all this effort doesn’t fit the purpose of giving the opportunity to connect and be Featured on my Blog. I really gave my time and space with all my heart to help others.  I am sorry but I think it’s time to take a break from this event, I don’t know for how long, maybe sometimes I will host some Meet And Greet again.
We had amazing connections made here and I want to thank from the bottom of my heart everyone that participated during the past two years. I will keep the Archive Page up so that you can always come back and dig through the many links left, sure you will find great blogs.

Right now I will focus on my Art and on other interesting things in plan here on my Blog.

Thank you love you all ❤
