I'll be very scarce on dA, for about a week.AWAY from: AUGUST 17th - AUGUST 23rd
I doubt I'll be able to check in on dA, or online at all.TWO REASONS
I never had a chance to actually seek medical help, when I was away for much longer in July...
I didn't get better... things are the same. I have finally been seeking help at the beginning of August.
I've had one appointment so far, and had some lab testing done... as well as "homework" in the meanwhile, before my NEXT appointment, which will be more involved, on AUG. 19th. Lots of paperwork, including some that involve how to figure out how to pay for this help, now that I've finally begun to seek it...
I am not keen on any medical details, in public places, like journals/blogs, but I know a few of you have wanted to know "what is up", and there's where I am with this.
I am grateful for the support and encouragement I've received via email and Notes, it is much appreciated-
as well as your understanding and patience with delays in replies, and certain commitments I have here on dA.
The annual "MUTT STRUTT" is just this coming Sunday August 18th!!! This will be my 3rd year in a row, to do it. It is the humane society's biggest fund raiser of the year. I do their photography booth. This usually involves taking portraits of dogs, and dogs with their human families... THEN I spend the following WEEK, emailing out the BEST image to each customer, all for a donation to the humane society.
We have a new board of directors, and I have had to present "THE SHELTER PROJECT" to them. As a result, this year they would also like to have my greeting cards, and jewelry as part of my booth/tent. While this is exciting, of course, I am so very busy lately, creating enough product for the event, and preparing and organizing AHEAD of time, too. I will have a couple of assistants with me that day... so that is good...
I just wish I was in better health for this, and in general, and I could enjoy everything much better,
but hopefully I will be better soon.
Love to all! Special Groups & Info.! %Unframed-Nature

:iconcuteheartzblue: Welcome to Unframed-Nature's Special Edition Article, Vol. 2 :iconcuteheartzblue:
:iconlovethesunshineplz: MAIN PURPOSE :iconlovethesunshineplz:
In Addition to our FIVE original folders that we've had since the beginning of 2012,
and the News Folder that we added in the middle of 2012,
we added FIVE Special Folders to our Group, at the beginning of 2013.
WHY DID WE DO THIS?
The main reason we did this, was to bring a deeper meaning to our Group, as far as our love and concerns for Nature.
With special news articles after every three months, which will reflect the work submitted to these folders, we are able to help share and spread awareness about particular issues that have an impact on Nature, which we would likely care about given the original idea for this group, to begin with. If you joined this group it is because you love and care about Nature,
June's TOP Subs of Unframed-Nature and NEWS!Welcome to JUNE 2013’s Top Submissions of Unframed-Nature.

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
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 salts out of the earth and lift them up to the leaves, sometimes over 400 ft above. By means of photosynthesis the leaves combine the water and salts with carbon dioxide from the air to produce the nutrients which feed the tree. In this process, as well as wood, trees create many chemicals, seeds and fruit of great utility to man. Trees also remove carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, from

Ood Sigma: We will sing to you, Doctor...Recently deviantART has added a new way to browse art. This article series is intended to feature art found by using the What's Hot? feature.
I'm doing the article series as a way to promote smaller facets of the larger categories, in hopes of sharing what I find and maybe you'll like it.
Today is April 19th, and here's What's Hot? in this category:
Digital Art > Drawings and Paintings > SciFi
Digital Science fiction depicting speculative scientific discoveries, space travel and scenes, and other world life forms.
I begin with this category because it is personally my favourite to browse. When I need inspired and want to get some creative juices flowing, I turn to this gallery to jump-start the process. I read a great deal of SciFi books, watch movies and television series, and even have found myself playing card and role-play games centered aro
The Timeline of deviantARTThe Timeline of deviantART
As of today, it's been 13 years since deviantART was founded. I've taken this opportunity to gather up some historical information with the help of $Moonbeam13 and some members of the Community Relations team.
I hope you enjoy taking a step back in time!
Please note: it is extremely difficult to track down some events in deviantART's history (in particular, the first few years) and that some dates are only approximate.

What is Sketchmatch™?
Sketchmatch™ is a very simple but fun game, in which you'll be prompted to make a drawing with a specific theme. The catch is that...
You only get 10 minutes to make your drawing!
The themes could go from drawing a cat, to drawing your favourite vacations, to drawing Pyramid Head! Here are some examples:
How does it work?
We'll see you at our official chatroom, :#communityrelations:, next August 7th at 6:00 PM PDT
We give the theme
Once everybody's ready, we set the theme. From that very moment you'll now have 10 minutes to draw your entry!

My game here wasn't as creative, but we had fun...

:iconhurrahplz: As of this month of August, "The Shelter Project" is TWO Years Old! :iconhurrahplz:
~~ Intro., Purpose of Article, History, and Info. ~~
Welcome to The TWO Year Anniversary of "The Shelter Project"- http://teaphotography.deviantart.com/gallery/2537930!
EVERYONE is welcome to be here, to be a part of the celebration, to learn more about this project and why it continues to be so important, and find out all about those here on dA who have even made this worthy cause even possible as something to participate in, right here on deviantART!
Truly the MAIN PURPOSE of this News Article is to give thanks and gratitude to ALL of the outstanding AFFILIATES of "The Shelter Project", as THEY are the ones who have made this
Thank you so much to everyone for all the truly outstanding support of this project during its FIRST TWO YEARS,
and since then!
It has meant so very much. COMING SOON! As August is the Anniversary of "THE SHELTER PROJECT", VERY soon, there will be a THREE YEAR Anniversary Article coming out, mostly to celebrate all of the Affiliates over the past THREE YEARS! It is due to come out at the end of August / beginning of September...
REMEMBER- The South Coast Humane Society
DOES welcome The Shelter Project: teaphotography.deviantart.com/…
as an official fundraiser of theirs.
They are happy to have this, and help of any kind. A Couple Changes to "The Shelter Project" There are exactly TWO changes, and it's very simple
1. From now on, ALL
of my images may be purchased as Prints or Greeting Cards, regardless of the subject matter, in order to help support the animals of "The Shelter Project".
[Previously, the work that supported this project, HAD to have SOME kind of animal as the subject-matter.]
2. Additionally, I have begun to create jewelry again-- something I did a lot of, about a decade ago-
And, ANY sales of ANY of my jewelry will ALSO go to "The Shelter Project".
Here is the FIRST example, and with more info. inside:
This particular pair of earrings have already SOLD!
However, I am slowly [apparently, VERY slowly] working on getting the rest of my pieces photographed, and uploaded! But, the sub-gallery where I have everything I've uploaded so far is HERE: teaphotography.deviantart.com/…
As always, I thank ALL OF THE AFFILIATES for EVERYTHING they've ever done to support this project!YOU
DO make a difference in the lives of these animals in need! SPECIAL THANK YOU'S! First of All...
THANK YOU, [AGAIN] to those who have
'd "Part 2"
of THE SHELTER PROJECT,
HERE: The Shelter Project
was presented first, HERE:
I had updated with:
as a SPECIAL Thank-You to ALL dA Affiliates of the Project.
This was the most recent upload which thanks those who purchased during 2012, and gives the total donation amount for 2012:
Thank you to all who continue to
the Project to at least simply spread the word, about helping animals in need.
is a big deal with a project like this, because by
'ing it DOES at least spread the word for a good cause. EXTRA SPECIAL THANK YOU'S! The following artists on dA, just made their FIRST purchases on behalf of "THE SHELTER PROJECT"!!!
Thank you to Crista, who purchased a standard set of 8 greeting cards!
Crista is the longest friend I've ever had, who I still talk to 'til this day. I've known her since our school days. And we met in band...
She created an account on dA, years ago, to assist better in supporting me, and indeed, she has followed my work well, and always has had a kind word. But she has no work there of her own for me to feature.
Feature for Crista:
I would if I could... but I have ALWAYS known Crista to be very artistic, especially in the creative crafty sense.
I was delighted when she placed her first order with me!
Thank you to Stygy, who bought this set:
I've sold earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, but this was my FIRST set!
Feature for Stygy:
Thank you to Sue, who purhased a standard set of 8 greeting cards!
Feature for Sue:
Thank you to Mel, who bought two sets of eight, for 16 Holiday Pet cards!
This isn't her first purchase, and she's already mentioned, where I keep permanent features.
Like, Crista, she does't have work on her profile, but she is a great photographer, and an early inspiration of mine!
Everyone's new PERMANENT features are now on my Profile Page... forever, and ever... An Extra Special Thank You
to the Following Artists and Groups who have recently featured for the FIRST time, or re-featured The Shelter Project
on their Journals or Profile Page, created something or even donated
on behalf of the project.
Those who CONTINUE to feature, have featured other times before, or also maintain
a Promotion of The Shelter Project
on your Profile Page or Journal- Thank you for your ongoing support.
The names of those who have taken The Shelter Project further in a variety of ways, through their various types of features of the Project,
on behalf of the project, and Purchases DIRECTLY through Tea Photography
© are placed on my Profile Page inside the Custom Box, titled: If Only- The Shelter Project
and are listed in the AFFILIATES
SECTION, because their type/s of support have earned them their official AFFILIATION with this project. Their names, or Group's names are also placed inside,

are ALL there, and will remain there, for their business AND in a few cases, their repeat
business of my work.
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, etc. ... is phenomenal.
