WHILE WE WAIT :hugs: by Synfull

I sent out the voting notes to the judges for Project Stacee this week. I plan to announce the top 3 project submissions on the 17th of this month. Thanks again to everyone that made the time to get involved. You all made a big difference in someone's life.
While the judges deliberate, I'd like to feature some fun autumnal deviations since fall is my favorite season... Enjoy!

FEATURED ARTIST Surprise by Deadman2

Each time I update my journal I like to feature an artist that has used my stock in their art. This week's featured artist is...

valkiria-art: This Polish "deviant of many talents" has been at deviantART for a year this week. Her gallery has traditional art as well as digital art for you to enjoy. In addition to her own art, she supports other artists by offering stock images and textures at valkiria-stock.

It's moving into Spring here, always seems weird that you are having Autumn at the same time :)

I think of you at the Equinoxes - when our days and nights are exactly the same length of time.

Happy leaf tumbling!!
FantasyStock's avatar
I know what you mean. It's difficult for me to imagine Christmas without cold and snow. In the States, May through August are the prime months for weddings. I thought you might get a kick out of that, since that's your winter.

Thanks! Here's another little photo of autumn for YOU!


Leaf tumbling! LOL! Grey was helping his brother rake leaves on his lawn a couple of years ago. They raked the leaves into big piles, and he took a running leap, and he jumped into the leaf pile. Too funny - you know, jumping into leaf piles when you're a little kid is fun, but jumping into a leaf pile as a full grown adult is painful. The leaves didn't break his fall. He said it was like flopping onto the ground with his full weight. Teeheehee! It's like rolling down hills... Excellent pass-time for little kids, but it's a nauseating afternoon of repeating vertigo as an adult.

LOL that is so cute!

Though, I did the rolling thing in adult hood - it's still fun :P

Something about knowing that you can still roll down hills without losing your lunch makes me really admire you even more than I already have.
tehkella's avatar
The trick is to do it before lunch ;)

The project has been a wonderful one and I do hope it has provided Stacee's Grandmother with a little bit of comfort :hug:
FantasyStock's avatar
Yes, I'm very happy with how the project turned out so far. I'm eager to see which 3 submissions will be chosen. From what I've heard, Stacee's grandmother has seen most of the entries, and she was very touched by people's work. Thanks again for your help!
