Without them, this Project would not be possible, let alone the success that it's been, and that we hope it continues to be. :nod:

They make up a good portion of the TOTAL donation business for The Shelter Project, and I can never be more thankful for what they've done and continue to do!

:note: The first HALF listed, have made multiple purchases or contributions, to the animals in need through The Shelter Project.

was a partner in a SPECIAL PROJECT, called:
"The Shelter ART Project":
The Shelter ART Project by TeaPhotography
in which she sponsored the Artwork that I donated and presented to
the *FIRST* shelter that was benefiting from
The Shelter Project, before I had moved.
There was even some left over for a direct donation, and due to all of this, it is why she is included here!

Each of the above friends/supporters are truly fabulous individuals, who are extremely compassionate people, that they would participate in "The Shelter Project", in this way which directly benefits animals, while receiving any of my custom made Artwork!

Thank-You by KmyGraphic

I am forever grateful from the bottom of my heart!
.... to think of the ANIMALS they have helped!

:iconlawooplz::iconlawooplz::iconlawooplz:

DUE TO THIS BEING THE 150th WISHINGWELL WEEKLY NEWS ARTICLE, *and* THE 55th TREASURE CHEST WITHIN THE ARTICLE...
This week only, I would LOVE to REWARD SUGGESTERS of THE TREASURE CHEST.
IF, YOU have EVER SUGGESTED TWO (Yes, two) OR MORE TIMES, during the 55 times we have had THE TREASURE CHEST, YOU MAY SUGGEST 2 (TWO) of YOUR OWN WORK!

Your-own-work. Yes, TWO. One is fine. No more than two, just in case we get a lot, but you earned it and deserve it and we have had LOTS of SUGGESTERS, all these many many many times since beginning the TREASURE CHEST, and it's wonderful! And some of THEM, have suggested nearly EVERY TIME!! :wow: :faint: ;) But participation like that is truly AWESOME, so C'MON! :nod:
THIS time, let's make this about YOU! :heart: Number of fav's does NOT matter in this case. Suggest by thumb or links in comments below... for next week! :la:



"The Treasure Chest"- truly OUTSTANDING work, found from around dA from Active Deviants, any genre, with 299 faves or less.

Keeping a Wary Watch by TeaPhotographyCanadian Snowflake globe by gigi50 I Think I'm A WitI don't know who I am ! Should this be a worry?
Thoughts pile up like snow - coming in a flurry.
They stick in my dull mind... forming gooey slurry.
Might help be on its way ? I do hope they hurry!
No one understands me, or makes an attempt to.
I have rational thoughts \ until they slide askew.
Totally paranoid * about each bugaboo!
You don't ever listen ! to my own point of view.
I try to stay in touch  ~  some people don't reply.
This happens frequently; of course I want to cry!
I'm afraid to ask them / but wish they'd tell me why.
Next time they say hello? I'll answer with goodbye!
I'm not using big words - misplaced my thesaurus.
I know fancy language (: but this mind is porous.
I forgot most lyrics; kicked out of the chorus.
I think I'll just become............... a tyrannosaurus!

The Treasure Chest- Ed. 15

Mon Feb 1, 2016, 6:08 AM


:icondevnews: DevNews :icondevnews:

:icongrouphugplz:Welcome To Our VISUAL News Showcase :icongrouphugplz:
What is it?
:icontreasurechestplz:THE TREASURE CHEST:icontreasurechestplz:
"The Treasure Chest"-
Truly OUTSTANDING work, found from around dA from Active Deviants,
any genre or media, with 299 faves or less.


:note: We've had a couple of good questions about what is considered ACTIVE for this monthly event.
ACTIVE: If the artist has not shown ANY signs of ANY activity within Eight (8) weeks, or so, I would not suggest them. At least not for the time being- they may return of course, because two months isn't  super long.

Activity does not necessarily mean submitting deviations, though. They could be here every day commenting, replying, doing features for other people, and otherwise being supportive, but perhaps NOT submitting their own work for say... a YEAR, for example.
And this is still considered ACTIVE, in my opinion.
I hope this helps. :aww:


This Activity began as a weekly activity within dAWishingWell's Sunday/Monday weekly summation News Article:
"WishingWell Weekly" about two years ago.

It has been well received and includes participants who want to suggest a few of their own.  SO, we decided to do a similar News Article, but one that's only focused on the treasures, as a MONTHLY Article here at DevNews. :D

We really hope you enjoy it!
:la:

Centaurea montana - mountain cornflower by CBKphotos 18.VIII.14Słucham jak milczysz kucając nad wodą
Nie znam widoku który w dłoniach trzymasz
Codzienne modlitwy w tę noc mi nie pomogą
Wierzę w Ciebie, w siebie wątpić zaczynam
Widzę Twą twarz, choć oczy dłonią zakrywam
Rytmicznie w blat stołu stukam palcami
Nastaje wschód słońca, noc leniwie odpływa
Muszę samotnie walczyć z myślami
Będę czekał i znów odprawię rytuały
Zapełnię swoje dni słuchając Twego milczenia
Przez wszystkie godziny które mi pozostały
Zaczekam, aż będziesz mieć mi coś do powiedzenia.

Loki (pencil drawing) by DegasClover FadingHave you seen my words?
I've searched everywhere.
I know this sounds absurd,
They're neither here nor there.
Have you seen my words?
Without them I am lost.
Please return them hastily,
I care not for the cost.
Have you heard my voice?
I fear I lost it too.
I've been so clumsy lately.
Oh, what am I to do?
Have you heard my voice?
I know not where it went.
I try to make a sound,
But silence supplements.
Have you seen my inner self?
I think she left me too.
Darkness has me surrounded
And I know not what to do.
She's not here to guide me,
She took my voice and words.
I'm alone with my demons
And I cannot be heard.
Have you seen my words?
Have you found my voice?
Please, it's getting darker...

Special Fundraising for:
“The Shelter Project”


:eyes:

UPDATE: As of JANUARY 15th, 2015



There has been some really super fantastic support through the donation widget since the end of last Summer!
It has become obvious many people have come to care about this project, which means the world to me, :earth:
AND also to the animals it continues to support, and this is excellent, because this is an ongoing project, which continues to seek ways to improve and seeks new and innovative ways to help animals through art, via “THE SHELTER PROJECT”.

Unfortunately, there will always be many animals in need, but, together our various efforts will ALWAYS make a difference to the ones we DO reach- and it is definitely a TEAM EFFORT. :heart:

:icongrouphugplz::icongrouphugplz::icongrouphugplz::icongrouphugplz::icongrouphugplz::icongrouphugplz:

:star: Born from the local events of this past Summer, came the idea AND realization of a charitable photo gallery right in the lobby of South Coast Humane Society
The South Coast Humane Society .
We placed framed, (thanks to PayPal donations) 11x14 prints from dA that many of YOUR previous points :points: from last Spring 2014, (when this widget first opened) had gone to, clustered in a few sections of the walls within the front lobby.

There was a section of shelter dogs, a section of shelter cats, a section of Nature, and a section of conceptual and miscellaneous.
Those original points :points: also went to dA mugs of shelter cats and shelter dogs.

I was surprised at the initial success from the last half of the Summer to the first part of the Autumn. Almost half of the framed 11x14’s sold, and a few of the mugs,
including a customized 11x14 and two customized mugs.

Then there was renovation/construction done to the medical and kitten rooms, which affected the lobby and the gallery had to come down mid-Oct. through the end of 2014.
The walls have been repainted, and we are ready to go again in 2015!!!
:excited:

:eyes: So I used your point :points: donations you all had donated from the end of Summer through toward the end of December to purchase these 11x14’s:
Paw Bullet (Brown) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre Dogs: fav.me/d87hkhe , fav.me/d7o20yh , fav.me/d7swbir

Paw Bullet (Brown) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre Cats: fav.me/d6wjdl1 , fav.me/d7swbjs , fav.me/d78xsxj

i heart u by ashblackthorn Others: fav.me/d813h4x , fav.me/d7kb38j

:eyes: I also used the points to purchase the following 16x20, to hang as year-round advertising,
because I had a few local local pet portraits toward the end of the year- dogs- for holiday prints and greeting cards, which was a pleasant surprise, so I thought,
if I advertised, who knows what might happen, next season.

Paw Bullet (Brown) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre Dogs: fav.me/d88f7x1

All of these new additions will be hung when I rehang the others, and RE-design the Charitable Art Gallery, via “THE SHELTER PROJECT”, by the end of this month of Jan. 2015!
:iconcatlaplz:

All framing was done by, yours truly, to cut down on costs, and afford more prints with your amazing points :points: , but paid largely through PayPal donations (the frames, only).
I can’t thank my donors aka Affiliates of “The Shelter Project” enough! So many ways to help! :huggle:

TO CONTINUE in 2015…


I really hope to be able to have enough points :points: to purchase more for this part of “THE SHELTER PROJECT” again, around late April or May…
Hopefully we will have had sales, with what we currently have now, for The Charitable Gallery, but the Summer months get busier around here, with more activities and events, and I would really need and want to be prepared. Other than more framed 11x14’s, I hope at that time, I might be able to get a few more mugs, magnets, and also stickers… though these for certain, I would have to get through VistaPrints, which I would purchase with PayPal donations.

So, I thank you in advance, for your help in this ongoing project to save and help animals, and for those, who’ve helped already,
I thank you ten-fold again for returning!!!

:note: REMEMBER: Points :points: is just ONE of many ways to help animals
of “THE SHELTER PROJECT”.
YOU can DIRECTLY purchase prints, photo greeting cards, jewelry pieces, and animal or nature stickers, as well!
A direct purchase is also a donation, but you get artworks from someone you know (me) in return- it’s a win-win, and we’ve helped animals…
TOGETHER!!!

IN RETURN ...


Though even 1 :points: IS very highly valued, and used toward this fundraising endeavor,
I will do as much as I'm able, and as time allows, for donations of 10-20 :points: or more…
such as:
:bulletorange: Give you a llama, if I haven’t yet. (I would certainly do this for less than 20 :points:!)
:note: It’s only that TIME is my main issue in general, and is the only reason I make any distinction, as such.
:bulletorange: Give you :+fav:’s on your work, and I usually find work that I truly do like!! :nod:
:bulletorange: Give you comments, & especially some constructive ones.
:bulletorange: For higher donations you’ll likely find yourself in some of my features I do.
:bulletorange: For higher donations, if you are someone that enables “CRITIQUES” and would like me to do any, link me to a couple of them, via NOTES. :aww:
:bulletorange: There might be something else I can do- Such as feature or promote a project for you or a friend of yours, or perhaps you've got a friend, whose work you would like to have commented or :+fav:'d?
Simply let me know where the need is, and I would be happy to HELP,
(of course, I probably would anyway! :XD: )

:icondoggyplz: :iconwalkingcatplz:

THE GIVE BUTTON:


I want to thank a few friends who have always donated to me personal points since before I ever had a points widget, and continue to do so.
:iconloveyouplz:
Those who continue to do this, it means a lot, because I can give a :iconcakebadgeplz: or maybe something else special to someone personally once in a while. There are also a few groups, I like to give to once in a while, such as: dAWishingWell and a few of their wishes, and Unframed-Nature PetPicks for starters...
and being able to give means a lot- I appreciate being able to participate in that feeling. :heart:

When you use the GIVE BUTTON I simply know for sure, you mean it for me, personally, and I can keep the points separate from the PROJECT, and this is very helpful.

Again, humbly, just thanks so much...

Gorgeous Videos Created For Me By Teresa Tigles1Artistry




The photos used for this video can be found HERE: teaphotography.deviantart.com/…

This amazing video was made for me, by my dearest friend Teresa :icontigles1artistry:
as a surprise gift...
She wanted to make this video to place in her Custom Box on her own Profile Page where she is so very generously promoting The Shelter Project: teaphotography.deviantart.com/… :rose:

Not long after, she also made yet another one which contains more of my animal work, and is more particularly about The Shelter Project: teaphotography.deviantart.com/… :rose:

And... HERE IT IS:
:iconlovesqueeplz:


The photos used in this video can be found HERE: teaphotography.deviantart.com/…
and from a number of other Sub-Galleries of mine. :aww:

And, THEN, as also a BIG Part of The Shelter Project she created another video to support my hand-crafted jewelry that also donates funds for the animals, through purchases:


She'd made THIS one for my birthday!
Teresa never ceases to amaze me with her creativity in seeking out ways to support this worthy cause for animals! :heart:
