Hello everyone during the past few months I made beautiful new connections.  Thanks to everyone for  the participation to our weekly Meet and Greet Fridays I had the opportunity  to discover and connect with numerous and inspiring Blogs and it is not easy for me to choose only one each month. Sorry I had to skip the month of July cause I have been very busy with the World Watercolor Month event. But finally I was able to made  my pick for the month of August.

This month we will have the opportunity to travel around the world of Maria and read all about it !

Today I am very pleased and honored to introduce you my new friend and Featured of the  Month and featured is…Maria Jansson  and her beautiful  Blog


“I am passionate about; exploring the back roads, being fit, healthy food, hiking, camping, horses, wide open spaces, road trips, the joy of hearing my daughters laugh, and ending each day in peace.
My grandmother gave me my first camera when I was five years old, and I’ve been taking photos ever since.

See you soon!”



Love for Horses

I connected recently with Maria I came across her Blogs because my passion for photography. I loved her beautiful Photography and after visiting and following her Blog  we stayed connected, we have many things in common that we can relate and love. Maria is a lovely new friend for me here on the Bloghosphere. I am very happy I was able to connect. I love to read her comments to my posts and see her stopping by. She has a great love for nature, horses and photograph them beautifully! And I am happy to share her Blog with you!

This is an excerpt of her About Page…

My grandmother gave me my first camera when I was 5 years old. The photos on this blog represent the beauty I experience, in my not so ordinary life! It would be my greatest joy if they could serve as a source of inspiration for you!

Horses have been my passion even longer than photography, and for a while I had an Equine Photography business. I decided to travel some side roads in life, and to temporary let go of full time photography. I grew up in a small mountain village in Sweden, and I have traveled extensively in Europe, and the US. I believe in the law of attraction, in kindness, and a humble attitude to life. I have a BA in Natural Science, and Early Childhood Education. I’m genuinely interested in a sustainable lifestyle. While not working full time as a photographer I’ve been learning valuable skills connected to my goal of having a homestead on a few acres. Lately my fingers have been starting to itch to make photography a full-time business again. Right now I am learning more about the business side of photography, and collecting all the equipment I need to start out in the best possible way, when I’m ready”... (Continue reading here)

dreamsToday I am more than happy actually I am truly honored to be able to introduce a freshly new Blog and Feature here on a Hero like Nick.

Someone that I admire and consider a great example and an amazing Soul. Nick is conquering his journeys pushing himself to the limits, turning his life upside down after it was almost taken away from him.
Having hope and believing that “Dreams can come True” .
In 2009  Nick was left for dead, stabbed through the brain in an unprovoked attack that caused his life to change. My followers maybe remember my mention about this when few weeks ago I featured Sue Vincent which is Nick mother. I was so touched when several months ago I came across Nick story and miraculous journeys, how he is overcoming the result of this horrible attack that influenced his life. Nick was told that recovery was unreal and that he would never walk again and be independent. This year Nick participate to a Triathlon race and archived many other great things.

Walking again!

The immense strength, determination and will power he has is an amazing message of Hope and to “Never give up” because dreams can come true if you truly believe in it.  Congratulations Nick for all your achievements and for being what you are! Thank you for giving us an amazing message and great inspiration.

YesterdayAfter Original Questions:
(Never change them!)

1. If you describe or picture your inner soul how will you describe it?

“These are My Answers”

My soul is deep blue I don’t know why but if I have to imagine what color is I see it in all the shades of blue. My soul is very receptive and absorbing a lot from the outside. Is very balanced but sometimes can have some great picks on things I like and love. My soul has perseverance and takes challenges I am always been thinking “if you don’t try you never know!” I refer this quote to my Art and creativity! My soul fight for what I believe in. My soul wouldn’t ever tried things that would harm myself in a negative way. My soul is encouraging and positive to others and myself.

2. What are you working on right now?

Right now this year 2015 I am working mainly on my Jewelry Collection on custom orders and non! I am trying to promote my creations and online stores as I want to share them with the world. I am also working on designs for other future projects I have in mind. I always keep sketching and I take notes of any kind of creative idea pops in my mind. I also took a break for a while from watercolor painting and I would like to go back on it soon! In the main time instead painting I am more working on Digital Art who I love. There are so many things that my creativity lead me to want to do that I feel like I don’t have enough time during the day!
Update 2019 as today my Watercolor Painting is my primary focus, it is my life and daily work as a full-time independent Artist and Illustrator! Still creating Jewelry designs too! <3)

3. What is your creative Dream Project?

My Dream Project it is a real dream! One day I would love to be able to have my own Atelier Studio Gallery in a nice place, where I can work, display and sell all my creations of every kind together. This magical place will reflect my Art and taste in everything from the interiors to the products I design extends to my paintings, Fashion, Jewelry, Art and Interiors it would be so magical what I have in mind…for now my Atelier is virtually here on YesterdayAfter taking shape day after day… the future?
