There is no order to the above people, unless it has to do with an artistic image that was dedicated to me... as those are listed in the order from which I found the image by a LINK in notes or comments OR finally stumbling across it. :aww:

I thank the above people for the various GORGEOUS Artistic images, for the features, for the Points, cake badges, and for the P.M.'s, and the songs/videos/dA Muro drawings, AND for gifts/cards by snailmail!

I also wish to thank everyone who stopped by, to leave b-day wishes on my profile page!! This also meant very much to me, that you took that time... :heart:
If there was space, I would name each of you, as well...

:note: The actual gift from each one above, is listed or featured in the "Gift Box" on my profile page... :heart:

An EXTRA feature of their work, can be found below. :aww:

I hope you will accept this token image, as my total appreciation for each and every very thoughtful gift AND b-day wish!

:iconwhiteflowerplz: Personal NOTE :iconwhiteflowerplz:

:note: So yes, I am back, in case by reading this, you didn't figure it out. ;)

I have been a bit overwhelmed, on returning, due to all there's been to catch up with...
but I will be better with it all soon, hopefully. :aww:

I DO want to thank you all for your time and patience, especially where my time and work is required.

:icongrouphugplz: :icongrouphugplz: :icongrouphugplz:

I was away for 9 days in a row, and for "in a row" that's a lot of days away from dA and the internet, for me.

For a few of those days, I was actually able to go out of town!

The highlight, during that time was visiting a Wildlife Game Park!

I got to pet, play with, and photograph a baby cougar, a baby bobcat, a baby bear, and for the "smaller babies"
I did the same with ferrets, a white skunk, a raccoon, and a possum!

I also fed and walked among peacocks and wallabies, and we walked among a variety of types of deer, and llamas, and goats!

Just a couple parts of this place was more "zoo-like", with the more adult wild animals in enclosures.

I could not get any good photos of those as a result, BUT... despite ALL THE RAIN, I did get good photos of the animals who we had the interactive experiences with!  It was soooooo awesome, and I hope to share a few photos with you all... one day. :nod:

I spent the rest of the time off, doing a few other different things than usual, and getting other types of work finished.

Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
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

And remember, that each item listed in the application section is NOT a requirement, but as a whole, we are simply assessing what might be known by the applicant. :nod:

November ThankstivityIt is easy to point out the flaws....
Cliques, lack of communication, bad art that gets too many views, good art that doesn't get enough views, crappy DDs, and on and on and on. The complaints people have about deviantART could fill a book the length of the Bible, but November is a month for remembering what we have to be thankful for and so I challenge you, Solutions Seekers, to take a look around and find at least three things about deviantART that make you thankful for the community.
The Challenge
Create a deviation or journal that explores at least three reasons you're thankful for deviantART. It can be anything from tutorials and other resources to friends you've made to great art you've stumbled across to a favorite group. Whatever it is that keeps you coming back, I want to know about it.

:icontreehuggerplz:     Art for Trees - project:iconspringtree-1plz::iconspringtree-2plz::iconspringtree-3plz::iconspringtree-4plz::iconspringtree-4pl5:
"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

is holding a game! WIN POINTS :points: ! :nod:
sifro. - solve the codes and win points! IMPORTANT: the login into the submmitting system currently doen't work. I'll try to fix it somehow, but until then, the "Try it without login" link still works. If you submit the solution to a cipher, it will give you a link to the next one. It just won't remember your position in the game, so better save that link, or remember the solution so you can get it again.
:new: July/7/2014 - After a year and half, we finally have a next winner! It's Dimensionwalker21, winning 360 points. Congratulations!
Dec/24/2012 - We have a next winner! It's WintersRead, winning 306 points!
Nov/11/2012 - The second winner is nuvak! He generously refused the point reward, so there is still a lot of points in the pool for the next winner!
Oct/12/2012 - We have the first winner! It's ninquetari, who wins 475 points!
The easy day was yesterday! Today, the game begins! And It's just in time for dA's birthday! :D

The Kindness Quilt Community ProjectThe Kindness Quilt is a blanket created from the love of deviants right here on deviantART. This quilt is built upon love, respect and gratitude. Every person has a reason to and a means to create their own quilt square. To say thank you, to share a collaborative work, to show off a gift, commission or request, as a present, or simply as a design. The quilt square is 500x500 pixels, and when included in a completed quilt, can be resized smaller. Quilt squares are submitted to the Quilt Squares gallery.

Acts of Random Kindness!Hello fellow positivity promoters!
The time has come to announce our plans for ARKs. Acts of Random Kindness are those little things you do for others that make them and you feel great! You might leave a nice comment for a new deviant welcoming them to dA, leave a helpful critique for a struggling artist, grant a wish at dAWishingWell, answer a burning question to help a deviant out, donate to a donation pool, give a premium sub to another member, and more! If it is kind, promoting positivity and makes people smile, it is probably an ARK!
This is a great project created by MzzAzn and expanded by Hardrockangel!"...each month you commit yourself to doing at least one or two (or more) random acts of kindness to spread positivity throughout the community. "Hardrockangel writes, "This can be done by leaving small positive comments on pieces that haven't been commented on yet, by making art for someone, by giving points to donate towards someone's

Pets in Action contest winners and important newsFirst, I want to start with the important group news.
PetPicks founder, :iconIluvbiscuit2: has been blocked from dA. The location where she usually does work on dA, which includes her groups. Sadly, for the time being she cannot be on dA. For now she has made me, WindintheCoffeeCup, founder. She is very sad that she cannot work on PetPicks and is very sorry to everyone.
And I want to say nothing will change at PetPicks. It's still Sandy's group and I'm just taking care of it for her. :)
Now, to the winners of our contest!
The theme was "Pets in Action"! Because Sandy and I where the judges and Sandy can't be on dA to vote, I judged the submissions by myself. I choose the winners on the best capture of their pet in action.
1st place is Out of control by W-a-r-l-o-c-k
2nd place is Cat Fight by Fra-Emer

Repeat business, is not even all that a few of them have done, even though that's the epitome of awesome, and is direct help. But the repeat & ongoing promotions on the Journals and Profile Pages of Philippe, Jocelyne, Cheryl, Dana, Cecelia, Sandy, and Teresa, is phenomenal.
They have worked so hard to help promote, in addition to their purchases. I never could have imagined, not just awesome customers, but as if partners, throughout this whole Project. :nod:

[I am sorry to not include everyone from this time period. Truly so difficult to do.]

Special Random Artist Feature!

:bulletorange: Special Random Talented Artist Features Began in March 2009!! :boing:

In over three years that I've been doing this certain type of feature, I've finally featured ONE-HUNDRED Artists! I hoped this day would come! :party:

:new: The 105th Special Random Artist goes to Kiah :iconkick-artist:
He's a great traditional artist and photographer. I hope you'll visit him, but here are some examples:

:bulletblue: Active on dA for 1 year or more.
:bulletblue: 10K page views or less.


Page views alone do not necessarily reflect levels of creativity & talent. I think there's a lot of wonderful art/artists out there who just haven't been seen enough.
[For all the immense support and generosity that I have received since being on dA, I Pay it Forward ...]

Special Edition Feature: "Umbrella Art"

For a respectful tribute to the rain, the rainy seasons around the world, or perhaps for keeping off the bright sun, or for the sake of Umbrella Art, itself, I give you "The Art of Umbrellas":


A few of my own:
