All you have to do, is place the thumbcode or link of the deviation, in a comment below. And that's it! :w00t:

Yes, this is for the work of someone else, besides yours, in this type of activity. :XD:
Just please remember, that "three" is a MAX number. One is fine- and please don't suggest more than three... per week! :la:

:note: A Question came up: Yes, the intent is ONE work of Art, per ONE Artist each. So three different Artists featured, at the most, with one work each.

The Treasure Chest- Ed. 10

Sun Jul 26, 2015, 2:15 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" a year 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:

:community: Becoming A Part of Unframed-Nature's Admin. TEAM :community:

:note: If you would be interested in becoming a part of our Wonderful Admin. TEAM,
PLEASE :note:NOTE:note: ME, TeaPhotography.

:note: Feel free to look at our Application first, just to get an idea of the body of knowledge that it can take to run a whole group efficiently.

It's SO much more INFORMAL than it actually looks, really.

You don't actually need to answer each section, or even be qualified in every area! :faint:
I am definitely NOT! :XD:

It just gives us, the Admins., as well as YOU the newest Admin., some general idea of things. :aww:
 
:eager: Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
Introduction
Before you apply, please know that volunteering for a large and active group here on dA, such as Unframed-Nature is a real and true commitment, which will take up some of your time on at least a weekly basis, maybe more.
Unframed-Nature is special in many ways, but from an Administrative view point, it is very special because we have always had good luck with our current Administrators, most of which have been with the Group, as Administrators, for a very long time.
We are a very friendly Team, both with each other, and with the Members, as well. This means when we do have to decline works, we do give a reason, and we are friendly about it.  It means, that upon occasion if there is something that we disagree about within the Admin. Team, we disagree nic
:eager:

If you already have enough group experience you don't have to look at the application first, but I may ask you a couple of questions. :aww:

We just may be the group for you! Thank you!

:thanks: :heart: :thanks:

PLEASE NOTE ME, TeaPhotography.

You may want to LOOK at our APPLICATION, first, and answer as many questions as you want, or feel like answering.
It's MUCH MORE INFORMAL than it looks- really! :nod: :aww:
It just gives us an idea, as well, as you, our potentially newest Admin., a general idea of things. :aww:
 
Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
Introduction
Before you apply, please know that volunteering for a large and active group here on dA, such as Unframed-Nature is a real and true commitment, which will take up some of your time on at least a weekly basis, maybe more.
Unframed-Nature is special in many ways, but from an Administrative view point, it is very special because we have always had good luck with our current Administrators, most of which have been with the Group, as Administrators, for a very long time.
We are a very friendly Team, both with each other, and with the Members, as well. This means when we do have to decline works, we do give a reason, and we are friendly about it.  It means, that upon occasion if there is something that we disagree about within the Admin. Team, we disagree nic


:note: Obviously you do NOT have to be qualified in every area, AT ALL, to become a part of the Team!
I certainly am not! :giggle:

:thanks: :heart: :thanks:

Thank you to all of our current Admins., for such willingness to be so helpful! :heart:

It's GourmetThe squid writhed in my hands, its skin flashing from white to violent red.  It choked its tentacles up my forearms, its beak gaping open and closed.  I slid my thumbs to either side of its voiceless screaming and cracked the thing’s cartilage skull.  The squid’s skin faded from red to pink and finally to a lifeless white.  I removed my arms from the mess, now just a stack of tentacles on my cutting board, and wiped my bloody arms on my apron.  “There’s got to be an easier way.”
“There is.” Yur said beside me.  He could have passed for a human—but who really wanted to? 
I threw the squid’s body into a bubbling chili that could have stood in for any number of species’ excrements.  The fact that I could spot floating artifacts of the previous week’s meals didn’t help the comparison.  I snatched a lid and capped off the pot before the squid’s gelatinous body began to
The Coffee GodThe Coffee God behind the counter shuffles foot to foot, a dance of steam and espresso.  Black painted fingernails, inch gauged ears and a gray striped sweatshirt, hood crooked on his back.  There's a cigarette tucked behind one ear; it bobs and twitches with each step.
“Non-fat caramel latte,” he calls, just as he always does, part of a spell, part of a mantra, toneless (just a tuck at the end).  I reach.  He looks up.
The espresso maker hisses.
There's something like a grin, something like a spark, something like a shared secret linked eye to eye.  When he passes over the drink (rough cardboard sleeve hot to the touch), he lingers.  Our fingers brush, a shiver, a jolt, a ten-watt shock.
The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine.  I follow him out the door.

All you have to do, is place the thumbcode or link of the deviation, in a comment below. And that's it! :w00t:

Yes, this is for the work of someone else, besides yours, in this type of activity. :XD:
Just please remember, that "three" is a MAX number. One is fine- and please don't suggest more than three... per week! :la:

I will list the schedule of "WishingWell Weekly" in COMMENTS. :aww:

The Treasure Chest- Ed. 9

Thu Jun 25, 2015, 2:52 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" a year 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!

Graffiti Skies by berguntyTiny pink roses by Nexu4 Dead Girls Aren't Always Who They Seem To Be.There is a boy I know who refuses to leave, he's stuck in my own skin.
And that's what I am too. Stuck.
Maybe I'm a hidden love letter
Who writes to the little girls I claim to live inside of me
But shelters the little boy who wants to come outside.
Maybe I'm afraid you will take him away from me,
Or maybe I'm ashamed that you will judge my parenting skills.
He may not be my body,
But he is more than just this poem.
He is my heart, mind, and soul,
The very thing that animates me
And I would be nothing but a bottled love letter,
Lost at sea without him.

Alzheimersi hear my grandfather breaking shore on D-Day,
the muffled black and white German blaring
on the History Channel. the memories etched
in his face fading as the rabid fear, break-neck
hug, anything, to hold on.
and his fear seeps into my clothes, my spine,
lingers there for days.
Dead Girls Aren't Always Who They Seem To Be.There is a boy I know who refuses to leave, he's stuck in my own skin.
And that's what I am too. Stuck.
Maybe I'm a hidden love letter
Who writes to the little girls I claim to live inside of me
But shelters the little boy who wants to come outside.
Maybe I'm afraid you will take him away from me,
Or maybe I'm ashamed that you will judge my parenting skills.
He may not be my body,
But he is more than just this poem.
He is my heart, mind, and soul,
The very thing that animates me
And I would be nothing but a bottled love letter,
Lost at sea without him.

Unframed-Nature's Earth Day Project Results!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 19, 2015, 5:14 AM

:icongreenflowerplz:Unframed-Nature's Earth Day 2015: "Project Going Green" PROJECT Results:icongreenflowerplz:
    
    
Dear Fellow Admins., Members, Affiliates, & Friends of Unframed-Nature,

It is more than time to share the results from this time of the year's BIG CONTEST that we always host, which, this time was set up much more like a PROJECT- though simple enough, consisting of just a couple extra steps.

In the past few years, we have always held some sort of "EARTH DAY" themed Contest at this time of year, in order in order to have at least one of our two BIG CONTESTS per year, be one of awareness and education so that we can find a way to add more meaning to our deep love for Nature in our Group.

In every year that we have hosted such an Earth Day Contest, we have had a great and successful contest, with many amazing, talented, and well thought-out entries.


This year, just like past years, our Contest/Project had a ton of positive feedback, and was backed by many groups,
including Community Groups, and had many wonderful and generous prize offers. This didn't seem surprising, as once again it was for a good cause of awareness and education, specifically for ways and ideas to conserve and protect our planet. :aww:


However, one key place where it continued to lack throughout the time period, was in enough actual participants, to truly hold the "Contest" part of things.
A few weeks ago, the Contest Article:
:icongreenflowerplz: Earth Day 2015, PROJECT GOING GREEN-UPDATES:iconjoyloveplz: Welcome to Unframed-Nature's Next BIG Contest :iconjoyloveplz:
:note: UPDATES ARE LOCATED:
1. AT THE CONTEST END DATE, with a FIVE DAY EXTENTION, and
2. WITH THE PRIZE LISTINGS, in relationship to slow participation or lack of.

:iconearthplz: About Earth Day, And How It Relates To This Contest :iconearthplz:
Earth Day is a Global Holiday which began in 1970!
:cake: IT BEGAN 45 YEARS AGO :cake:
This year in 2015, this international celebration which aims to promote awareness, education, and action in order to help preserve and protect Nature on our common home Earth, falls on Wednesday, April 22nd!
This is Unframed-Nature's THIRD year in a row having an EARTH DAY contest. I think this is a celebration, in and of itself.
:eager: :party: :eager:
It began as an attempt to reflect that not only do we love and enjoy the
:icongreenflowerplz:
was amended, and updated to reflect the possibility that we would not have enough participants to have our usual BIG CONTEST at this time of year.


However, we WILL celebrate the brilliant entries of the participants who took amazing interest, took the time and put in the gorgeous effort that they did, on behalf of this PROJECT.

We did have two BRILLIANT participants, and they should definitely not go unnoticed. Instead they truly deserve to be acknowledged for their outstanding entries both in imagery and the matching required information that they provided. They each really did an awesome job!

First Submission: "Rain Barrel"
Rain Barrel by donnasueb
by: Donna donnasueb :icondonnasueb:
Donna's superb photograph clearly depicts a creative view of a close-up of the rain barrel that is the subject matter of Donna's project, which was reflective of her choice from the list that was provided, of "Water Conservation". Her Artist Comments also gives great examples of ways the rain barrel is environmentally beneficial, accompanied by photos along the way. This is such an exceptional submission!!

Other Examples of Donna's works:

Congratulations, Donna! Thank you for participating in our "Earth Day's Going Green Project"! You did an excellent job!
I hope you continue to live a "green" life as much as possible, for the sake of our beautiful planet, findng opportunities to share your ideas with others!

Second Submission: "Growing Communities"
Growing Communities by I-am-the-wanderer    
by: Zachery I-am-the-wanderer :iconi-am-the-wanderer:
Zachery's impressive traditional piece is illustrative of the environmental subjects from the list "Community Food Plots" as well as elements from "Recycle/Reuse" and "Planting a Tree".
This alone, just goes to show, that these things are often very much connected! Zachery provides a lot of great information, with wonderful links to check out! I really love how he describes that the work of art itself uses nearly all recycled materials. This is one incredible submission!

:party: :earth: :heart: :party: :earth: :heart: :party:

Other Examples of Zachery's works:
Night Lights can Only Protect us so Much by I-am-the-wandererArctic - Sea Jellies by I-am-the-wanderer

Evening, October 31 by I-am-the-wandererShell Monochromatic by I-am-the-wanderer

Congratulations, Zachery! Thank you for participating in our "Earth Day's Going Green Project"!  You did a marvelous job! You put a lot of work into it, and it shows. I appreciated your enthusiasm for this project, and your comment about art and conservation helping one another! Good luck in this area, professionally!!

:icongreenflowerplz:
the original prizes planned for a full BIG Contest are not feasible or practical without any level of actual competition,
but wth TWO FANTASTIC PARTICIPANTS, it was amended that there would at least be a :new: new prize package for these such participants, which is as follows, for EACH ONE:


:star: 300 :points:
:star: Llamas from:
TeaPhotography Felizias Annissina KiwiCocktail
LacedShadowDiamond Andorada bobonishu
Unframed-Nature-PTS
:star: Unframed-Nature will copy your PARTICIPANT SUBMISSION to the FEATURED folder, and our Point Account Unframed-Nature-PTS will :+fav: -
:star: Unframed-Nature will also request SIX or so EXTRA of your other works of art from your gallery to the FEATURE folder, and then Unframed-Nature-PTS will happily :+fav: those, too.


:note: Many groups (eleven) and a few individuals (six) offered features as prizes-
however under the unique circumstances...
I am not holding them to this, though they ARE still welcomed to do it, if they want to. :aww:


:note: After the above prizes are completely distributed, this Earth Day Contest/PROJECT, will be considered officially and completely over.

:iconearthplz: However, it is with great hope that we might always keep it in mind the wellfare of our great and universal home of planet Earth.  It's certainly more important that we at least make the time to do what it takes to live a "grean life"- one that is consciencious of how we as humans are living in relationship to our beautiful home. Let us not waste her resources, or abuse them, or pollute them... etc. etc.
This is a global effort, that begins with each individual, for the vital benefit of all, and certainly for our future generations. This is definitely worthwhile and worth our time and effort. :heart:

Interestingly, half of these are fellow-Administrators of mine. (The "A." designates six who offered things directly for the PROJECT, and the other FOUR LOVELIES, are simply sweet and awesome people who I know! :love: ) As far as the Admins., when I think about what these very same people already do for our group, or at least strive very hard to do, I am doubly amazed by some of our Administrators, and their loyalty.

Without them, our group would cease to exist, and I say that because personally speaking, I have been having way too many challenges which have only increased too much since 2015, and I am unable to keep up with any single "thing" without certain assistance.

There are a couple of other wonderful Admins., who do show up on some regular basis, aside from the other "A.s" mentioned above, and I am very thankful! :nod:

I would like to name them, but I'm afraid to leave someone out, and I'm the kind of person who would abhor to hurt someone's feelings in that way.

However, I would like to point out at least ONE of my other Administrators, WHO, I've been wanting to find a time and place to give more acknowledgement and credit, for her REALLY BIG HELP, in just keeping the basics running on a daily or at least near daily basis. I don't know if she or anyone realizes how much this has meant to me, and how much this has helped.

Our group is HUGE, and active, despite a fairly limited submission limit, and yes, while there is some other help- (don't think I don't know it! ;) ), it's simply that I have noted that she is able to be there and often, doing the part of the group, that is what I call "the daily grind" - and thankfully so!

Thank you so very much Kezia!!! Keziamara :iconkeziamara:

Admin needed by Felizias Admin. Changes at Unframed-Nature Admin needed by Felizias
    
This is nothing TOO major, but it is important enough to announce it with fellow-Admin. and Members alike.
There will be a few changes within our Admin. Team here at Unframed-Nature.

One of our "top" Admins., has asked to be moved "down" and that was a while ago, and still I have not done it yet... :XD:
... waiting to work on all of the changes at once.

There will be approximately 2-3 Admins., being moved to Membership, simply because they haven't been active on dA, let alone here at the group, for a super super long time!!

There might be a bit of movement upward... NOT certain yet.

But regardless, even among others who I will have stay, there are those who aren't as active as they once were, but due to their immense longevity with the group, and their role as advisors, holding a very specific job, or supporting the group in some other specific way, they will certainly stay.

My role continues to mostly be behind the scenes in management- permissions, keeping up the back area, planning events like themes and contests, every-other-monthly TOP SUBS event, taking the votes, writing our news articles, moving work, moving folders, and managing our Points Account, etc.,- not to say I don't have assistance with some of this from time to time.

And I do check in on voting on submissions from time to time, and I DO check logs etc.

However all of this on its own, is very challenging- and has become more so, and makes it nearly impossible to be as active as I would like to be in my other Admin. positions of other groups,

which is my own problem, of which I will be working on this summer, and trying to re-organize my time and life, in general, around my issues...

:star: This all being said, what we are really :eyes: LOOKING FOR here at Unframed-Nature is to recruit about 2-3 ENTRY LEVEL Administrators to join our family of team-members! :eager: :heart:

The "Entry Level" position is technically called "Supporting Team Administrator", and it basically involves very basic work, as you get to know how the group works from the inside.

As an Administrator you get quite a few perks. If you are a Founder of another group, you get ongoing advertising with us, for one thing.

You are also provided a Mentor, to help you navigate our information in the back area, or help you answer anything that comes up.

There IS an "Interview Sheet" but it tends to look too formal, and it is not meant to scare anyone off. However, it can be provided simply as a way for us to get to know you better, and vice versa! :nod:

We would prefer if you were already a Member of our Group, or at LEAST familiar with our group, through working with us or supporting us in some kind of way. :heart:

:note: Please, NOTE me, TeaPhotography if you think you might be interested in helping us out at the Entry Level, as a "Supporting Team Administrator".

Thank you so very much!

heart bullet. by valokilljoyWhat IS "The Shelter Project"?

"The Shelter Project" is an ongoing charitable project, that seeks teamwork in order to raise funds for animals in need- usually those who need rescuing, medical help, to be spayed or neutered, etc.,- animals that need food, shelter, ongoing medical treatment, and for animals who are waiting for adoption to a new home. The project does this, primarily through purchases of a wide variety of artistic works available, by Tea of Tea Photography. 

"The Shelter Project" is NOT one person's project. It is the TEAM'S project. Never once, could any one person do any of this, not even a part of a project surrounding something like this, alone. In this case, this TEAM is the dA Affiliates of this project, for they formed themselved. Without them, there would be no project.

heart bullet. by valokilljoyThe History & Evolvement

"The Shelter Project" began on deviantART, in August of 2010. It is well into its FIFTH year now. I used to create Anniversary Articles up through the 3rd Anniversary, but missed doing the 4th one this past August, (completely for personal life reasons), and therefore to due to lack of time-
Notice, I've not published any journal on my own profile since August of 2014, which is the longest, I've ever gone since joining dA!

I decided, being a year and half since any Article on the project, I would do a "Report" instead.

In nearly the first year, the project supported Merced County Animal Facility, Merced California.  Since moving, it has supported the animals of South Coast Humane Society, Brookings, Oregon, :star:South Coast Humane Society:star:. However, there are two other local shelters, not much farther away. It is possible that someday one or both of them, might also benefit.

When the project first began here on dA, the first two Affiliates were philippeL and JocelyneR who practically ordered something about the same time, that I can never truly figure out who was exactly the first. :XD:

They ordered things like prints, and greeting cards, WHICH at the time, were the only types of art products I offered. I felt bad later, thinking about the first greeting cards orders, because as I was first starting out, my greeting cards were not quite the great quality that they are now! I've had all the professional materials needed to create the quality greeting cards truly worthy of selling, for quite a while now. Luckily the friends that my first affiliates are, they never mentioned anything negative. :XD: :heart:

I decided to try a project like this in an effort to help and support animals, when something drastic had occurred in my own personal life which would forever affect my financial and earning capabilities. 
At the time, I had been volunteering with two different animal foster groups, and two shelter/pounds, since January of 2008. Part of my volunteer work, would sometimes include some financial contributions, but when this personal event occurred in my life, I was utterly devastated- both financially, AND emotionally.

While of course I knew I could still volunteer in various ways, and vowed to do so, I knew that I desperately wanted to find a way to still be able to give financially... somehow. I needed time to brainstorm, how I was going to do this. I had joined dA in March of 2008, not very long after my volunteer work with animals had begun. My passion for helping animals, as well as for creating and the courage to share my art had BOTH been growing enormously!
Sooo...

It hit me! Could it be possible, that I might be able to sell some art to help the animals I so desired to help?  The only thing was, again, due to my circumstance, I would not be able to donate 100%. Still, I did NOT want to make a profit, as this was not, and never has been the point. So, I carefully set it up from a separate account, and decided that I could do 25%, and the rest would go back into all the materials it takes to create the products (of which the product line has grown over time)!
Materials include, but are not limited to, printer ink, quality photo paper, card stock, framing, and jewelry supplies. These things are very expensive, but in such a circular organization, I would have a much more hope of keeping this project going.

The early affiliates simply began to refer to the project as "The Shelter Project" and I simply suddenly realized that this was exactly what it was, and that it should have a name, and that this was perfect. It was not named by me, but by the affiliates themselves.

About March of 2013, I opened my jewelry line, which I automatically included with "The Shelter Project" and just like the Greeting Cards, no matter the style or subject matter, any of my jewelry pieces would also go toward "The Shelter Project". I had been heavily into jewelry making over a decade before that time, but stopped for other things, but being back into it, has been like coming home to something very familiar and so exciting. I love it so much!
I have included such a variety just within the jewelry line by now:
necklaces, bracelets, earrings, wire-wrap rings, friendship rings (elastic), MATCHING SETS of the previous of 3 or 4, anklets, hair jewelry. And I use and do a wide variety of styles... if it's NOT uploaded, talk to me about something! :D

AND, I have finally but gradually been able to obtain all the professional and necessary equipment, and I try to use good quality materials while keeping prices affordable.

Not long after this I began expanding into other products, such as stickers, magnets, mugs, custom mugs- even two-side custom mugs (a photo on EACH side). Of course, I try to use deviantART whenever this is possible, but I use VistaPrints, when I can't use dA. I do my own photo greeting cards, and my own prints up to 8x10/8x8, as I have my own photo printer and guarenteed inks. But bigger than that, I encourage prints from dA- and to be notified if an image needs to be activated.

Let's look at what's happening in recent times, and currently.  I've always wanted to do more to engage "The Shelter Project" in the local community. It's taken a long while and a lot of work to break into the community, especially when you're new, but I feel that 2014, was finally the big year.

And YET, I always come back to the dA Affiliates of "The Shelter Project" - believe it or not, the Affiliates are largely responsible for this.

We planned a "First Annual Tea Photography Open House for THE SHELTER PROJECT" for last Spring, and a big part of the planning was opening a :points: widget, in order to purchase 11x14 prints to frame, as well as shelter mugs. While it went pretty well for the first time, we didn't space, to display most of the framed 11x14's.

BORN from this, was the idea to have a CHARITABLE Art Gallery on behalf of "The SHelter Project" which was up and running by the end of last Summer!!!
Four 11x14's sold and three mugs, plus two custom mugs, including three local photo shoots came out of this gallery display!!
ALL TO BENEFIT THE ANIMAL!!! :nod:

Now, after only eight weeks or so of being up, it all had to come down, for a medical area remodel and then a total repaint. It took a while to get the green-light to put it all back up, and at least at this point most of it is back up:

:star: sta.sh/012eacuazl05 :star:

There are plans for more to go up, in the near future, but this is a great start! :clap:
Thank you DONORS!!!
We will also put back the mugs, and advertise custom mugs, and we plan to put out shelter animal magnets, stickers, and photo greeting cards!

:note: EDIT: The MUGS were put back out on FEB. 26th, and one sold on the first day!
:iconcatlaplz:
I don't have a photo of them out, though, on the new shelf they have there now.

I also would like to bring in some of my jewelry line I have recently obtained creative and organizational ways of displaying my jewelry.
We'll see how it goes.

To see ALL jewelry I've been able to upload:
:star:teaphotography.deviantart.com/…:star:

Know that I have TONS more of finished pieces that I have yet to have uploaded to dA. I love to do a wide variety of styles. Feel free to ask me about what I have, or what I might be able to do. :aww:

The truth is, I DO plan to focus more again, or find some sort of balance between local and dA people. I will always remain 'specially loyal to dA, because everything was born here, and continues to be supported and maintained through the dA Affiliates- I will NEVER forget that.

In this year ahead, we plan to have TWO "Tea Photography Open Houses for THE SHELTER PROJECT" - likely either one in MAY and then JUNE, or it will be JUNE and then JULY.

And then there will be "THE ANNUAL MUTT STRUTT" in August, whereby I always do the photo portraits of the dogs and the dogs and their human families, AND sell my various artworks there at the same time all in the same booth. So that would be three big public events throughout this Summer.

And lastly, I am looking toward the possibility of having a 2016 calendar for "The Shelter Project"... I've always wanted to do this... but have had some trouble to figure it out.
Anyway, this year, at the last minute, I found a huge discount, and got the go-ahead from the Exec. Director of our Humane Society, and put one together fairly quickly directly, for the humane society itself. It contained pages of my photos of cats and dogs, alternatively. It was a big success. They did sell out by the end of January, which isn't too bad, considering it was last minute and we didn't get them in until after Christmas. :XD:

So these are some plans, and some ideas we are looking toward for "The Shelter Project" for the rest of this year.


heart bullet. by valokilljoyThe Difference Between "An Affiliate" & "A Super Affiliate"

ALL Affiliates are so extremely appreciated and valued, and there are such a wide variety of ways to help and support "The Shelter Project" and therefore to become an Affiliate.

Remember, all Super Affiliates are, actually Affiliates. There is no designation in that direction.

The difference between an Affiliate and a Super Affiliate is this:

An Affiliate, is anyone who has done any kind of advertising for "The Shelter Project"- such as, they've made a Custom Box on their profile page about it, or they've made a journal about it. Perhaps they've made some kind of poll about it, or even their own widget collecting points for it.

I've seen all kinds of creative things as the years have gone on. There's been charity adoptable events with cute kitty and cute doggie characters, for "The Shelter Project" to help raise points, and I even had a great offer for a homemade skin to use and sell to raise points.

I've even had gift art created such as this amazing stamp:

Shelter Project Stamp by Astrikos

I may be forgetting a few things, but I must say, that in all of these advertising efforts, none were my idea. All were generous acts conceived in the minds of generous and compassionate people.

There is no right or wrong way to make an advertisement, unless you want me to check your info. or the features. The creativity of such an advertisement is yours. Creating such advertisements, was never something I set up, rather was born through the evolvement of those who then became Affiliates for choosing to help.

Last Spring, when for the first time ever, I set up a Points Account on my page, specifically for "The Shelter Project" and it's Charitable Art Gallery- 11x14 Prints, Mugs, Magnets, those who donated :points: where it was their first time ever helping the project, became Affiliates. However read the Points Widget for details.

Some may have done any of the above once, or repeatedly, or continue to be ongoing active Affiliates, in some way!
:iconcatlaplz:

But the truth is, once an Affiliate, always an Affiliate. :highfive:

A Super Affiliate, is someone who definitely may have done any or all of the above- in fact many of them have, and repeatedly. On the hand, maybe they haven't.

The only distinction is that they have directly purchased something on behalf of "The Shelter Project", therefore donating funds directly to the project immediately in exchange for some kind of artwork made my yours truly.

In this way, donations are direct and immediate, while simultaneous I am promptly put to work, for something that means more to me than I can express.

In some instances, these types of affiliates have made multiple purchases. In a couple of other instances, they've also found other ways, to be directly beneficial to this project.

In a couple of unique cases, kurios-kat
became a Super Affiliate when she sponsored a rather large art project, from the first animal facility which "The Shelter Project" served.
She sponsored it, and I created it, and here is the end result:

Also, a Super Affiliate, MirachRavaia painted me an actual gorgeous T-Shirt, as a gift, for work, such as when I go to take photos at the shelter for the newspaper, otherwise volunteer, or do other photo shoots... it helps me become a walking advertisement, and I just LOVE IT!
It is beautiful:
