The truly incredible works inside of these fabulous Nature folders, makes it very difficult to narrow it down and choose so few to vote on. And given that we are such a large group, we DO need enough Members (and Admins.) to vote, in order to present a good enough representation of what is reflected in our folders.

This does take some time, therefore it is volunteer effort that we greatly appreciate! It is a generous and kind way to support our group! :love:

It is why we feel it is very important to recognize those who have been assisting us by participating in this event! Thank you ALLLLLL!

:rose:INTRODUCING NEW ADMIN. TEAM MEMBERS!:rose:

We have been in need of new Admin. Team Members for quite a while. Things have changed, some temporarily- a couple a bit more permanently. The result has been several of us, including myself, finding ourselves being stretched a little to a lot more thinly than usual. :aww:

But we DO want to keep the group going, best we can. So we just need a little help! :heart:

In order of recruitment only, we are very very pleased to introduce to you our newest Admin. Team Members!!

And we are so thrilled to have them... they each jumped in right away, and have been doing a GREAT job! They are amazing! :la: :heart:
We warmly welcome them, and thank them for being here to help out! :w00t:

:note: The truth is I would actually like to see us have about... at least TWO (2) more new Admin., if anyone is interested note me personally TeaPhotography , thanks! :thanks::heart:


:love: THANKS to Fellow-Admin. TEAM MEMBER for Custom Skin :love:

Lily created our Custom Spring/Summer Skin for us a while ago, but we got our wires crossed and I didn't realize it soon enough... but it WILL be used, oh yes, it will. ;)
Lily has created a couple other for us, and she is doing an awesome job at this for us! I love them all, but THIS is just gorgeous!!
:iconcatlaplz:

She has *never* asked for anything in return, no kind of commission or anything, and she is truly one very busy girl. She has done this out of the pure kindness of her heart. I have given her what few points that could be spared, but if you should feel so moved, I think it would be a nice gesture.
Thank you! :thanks::heart:

And it is fun, and people are participating, and so should YOU! :XD:

Check inside the actual submitting folder for BOTH the rules AND to submit:

Our front profile page, at the top, also has the rules, as well as our last couple of group journals.
Have fun! :la::




:iconpointsplz:POINTS for OUR GROUP:iconpointsplz:

Believe it or not, the truth is, we are in need of points :points: .
IF we are to continue to give out a tiny amount of points as prizes for "Themes" which are like Mini-Contests, which do NOT hold EVERY month anymore, but as often as we can,
and especially if we are going to host our Annual Autumn-themed contest, which is usually big with BIG points, AND renew our SUPERGROUP status in December,
then we might be in some trouble... :hmm:

Because I've been worried about it for a while,
I decided to seek help outside of our group...
I made a wish at dAWishingWell for 1,700 points :points: to help us out.

I had no idea how much to ask for as I did not want to appear greedy, and I've only made a couple wishes in all the time I've worked there...

Well, I *just* noticed that the wish WAS granted in FULL all at the same time, anonymously. I have not logged in, so not even I know what happened yet... but someone, or the group itself was very generous to us. I will thank them SOON! :D

I do not yet know, if this will quite cover everything, but I will NOT ask for help outside our group again this year.

Donations from ourselves have been recently low... and no worries, I can understand any and all reasons, but if you should have anything extra, especially between now and December 1st, it would be super helpful!  Thank you in advance!

:new: We now have options about being featured! You can choose one of those options. If you don't mention any specification, the admins will select themselves the art to feature, as usual.
If you don't want your art to be featured with your wish, please add "Do not feature my art" in your note.

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!

: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:

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.”

“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.

If you would like to participate in "The Treasure Chest" feature, simply refer to the criteria above, and IF you are an Admin., Member, or Friend of dAWishingWell you may feel free to suggest, UP to three deviations you feel are worthy of being found in the Treasure Chest.

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.

Thank you!!!! :love:

The following EIGHT (8) Members and Friends of The Well, helped by suggesting the first 24 works!!

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!
:la:

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.
