UPDATE 8 - As of Saturday, November 17, 2012, we are at 125,125 points, with only 34,875 points left to go! I was able to purchase 2,000 points a moment ago to put directly into the pool myself. My original intent was to get 8,000, but I ended up working less than I expected this week and was unable to, but as of my next paycheck (in two weeks), I will be able to purchase 8,000! That will leave us with 26,875. And after TimberClipse's AWESOME point doubler, like the one that helped out and did so amazingly earlier in the year, that will be another 8,000, leaving us with only 18,875! And his doubler is already halfway full with much thanks to rainylake for immediately putting 2,000 points in
Thank You deviantART, Thank You! (People to Thank)People To Thank: Heidi for Noting me! grieves05 in the Retail Department for working with her to make this happen! Thunderstatement for sharing this!Thank You deviantART, Thank You! (People to Thank)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just received a Note from Heidi informing me that they've heard word of my Warm Winter Project and that at the time of my purchases, deviantART would like to match me the amount of hoodies on their behalf!!! This means if I reach my goal of 50, I get 50 more! And if I don't, I get just as many from dA as I can myself!!!!! The awesomeness and appreciation I feel could never have enough emotes to describe!!! :iconimtoohappyplz:
With this many extras, not only will I be able to donate to a shelter in Savannah, I'll also be able to have some to carry with me while driving around Jacksonville, where the issue of poverty is much, much worse, and I'll be able to help out those who can't even be taken into a shelter that's too crowded!!
Thank you to Heidi, grieves05, and thank you EVERYONE at dA HQ!!!! :
Join Me on a Weekly Challenge to Spread Some Love!Hi guys! I'd like to introduce to y'all a small challenge that's very simple to spread a little bit of love around the site this year. I personally plan to do it for as long as I'm active on here, however to challenge you all, I only suggest trying it at least once (unless of course you all get as excited about it as I do!). This is mainly for me anyway, but I'd love if it you all gave it a shot! The challenge involves finding five people, completely randomly, and showing a little love to each and every one of them in a special way! I've received so, SO much help with the Warm Winter Project, I STILL don't feel like giving critiques, thanking everyone, and doing my weekly features is enough to last me all year until the Grand Finale Thank You I have planned, so this help me tide myself over until I winter. And I thought it'd be fun if each of you could try it out at least once, too!Join Me on a Weekly Challenge to Spread Some Love!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

BIG HUGE UPDATE ON WARM WINTER PROJECT!GUYS! I have to update on the Warm Winter Project. Now, I completely forgot that with Black Friday, there would be a sale. When I saw the 30% off ALL PRODUCTS sale and the note in the announcement showing that the 10% Premium Member would be added on as well, I figured if I got 40% off my entire order, why not go ahead and order some of the hoodies?BIG HUGE UPDATE ON WARM WINTER PROJECT!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So, I originally intended to order 15 Medium Men's and 15 Medium Women's hoodies, but when I saw that I would have PLENTY left over, I went ahead and put a total of 25 of each in my order. Unfortunately, my order couldn't go through when I received a notice saying there were only 16 of one and 19 of the other. I went ahead and filled the order to it's max and order the remaining 16 of my 50 hoodie goal in another design.
WITH YOUR DONATIONS, THE BLACK FRIDAY SALE, AND MY PREMIUM MEMBER DISCOUNT, AS OF TODAY, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2012, I HAVE MET AND PURCHASED MY GOAL OF 50 HOODIES.
As for the deviant $taff's offe
TimberClipse's Point Doubler Special Feature!Today is a special feature! TimberClipse was recently running a point doubler, where they would collect 5,000 points and several sponsors would match that 5,000 for a whopping 10,000 points for my Warm Winter Project donation pool! Well, the other day, they completed that goal and I now have over 99,000 points towards my goal of 160,000! Here are all the donors and sponsors who helped make such an impact on my pool!TimberClipse's Point Doubler Special Feature!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Thank you all for your support, I am so glad that this was completed with such great support. Thank you to everyone.
Please fave and comment on this journal to help others see it!
I almost never buy "extra" things, for me this includes items like points from deviantART. However, that has changed as of today.
Earlier this year, ToxicAlice92 announced a project
On my profile, in the top right, there's a donation pool. I want to spend the entire year raising up enough points to buy 50 Vertical Zip hoodies to donate to the nearest homeless shelter at the end of the year next year.But that wasn't it!
UPDATE 2 - I also received a note from Heidi earlier today (1.4.12) letting me know that deviantART would like to match my donations on their behalf!! That means when I reach my goal of 50, I will be receiving 50 more
PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b
