My main overall project, both where I am from locally, but especially HERE on dA,
where the project was born is this:

The Shelter Project



If you stay a bit, you will find my Galleries reflect various works of art-
each with a purpose, and special meaning for me. :aww:
You are welcomed here, and I truly DO appreciate your visit.

Updated 1-21-2018

YES, "The Shelter Project" is STILL up and running, and has had a GREAT start in 2018, already!


Can't wait to finally get an updated JOURNAL out also- it's been too long- as in years!
I know, we'll all believe it when we see it, me more than anyone! :faint:

Here's the current link of where "The Shelter Project" has supported our animals in need, for the last nearly 8 years:

South Coast Humane Society



There has been A LOT of changes with this shelter in the last few of years,... & a couple of the more pertinent ones I'd rather share in this journal I HOPE to get posted.

Flower Divider by AlbinoSeaTurtle Flower Divider by AlbinoSeaTurtle

This :points:Points:points: Pool Originally Began as Special Fundraising on Behalf of:


The Shelter Project



rainbow paws web bullet by Xiahism And, It will remain as the primary purpose.

By purchasing photos, photo products, & jewelry line products, directly from ME, Tea of Tea Photography- monetary donations go directly to the animals in need who we've all been helping.

The Product List has grown significantly over the years, and now the variety of art products available is quite substantial.

The Product List WITH Prices and Price Ranges can be found near the bottom of this most up-to-date journal HERE:

THE SHELTER PROJECT 2018 and Beyond



:iconcatlaplz:

Flower Divider by AlbinoSeaTurtle Flower Divider by AlbinoSeaTurtle

This is an ongoing project. I always need to save up again, in order to get more materials to create ANY of the products, including photo-product supplies, as well as jewelry line materials.

HOW IT WORKS: 30% of ALL purchases goes TO "The Shelter Project" - the REST goes back into a separate account via PayPal, specifically set up ONLY FOR The Project, in order to purchase more materials & supplies, in order to keep it going!

And, round and round we go, because there will always be domestic animals with medical needs. This includes spays & neuters of domestic cats & dogs.

And btw, I will ship ANYWHERE- to the MOON, if necessary!
Cresent Moon Emoji by kawrisu
Or FARTHER:
:thumb555949865:
Anything that would help our domestic animal friends. :nod:

:note: PayPal, has seemed the easiest & most efficient way, now that I've been doing this for nearly eight years, IF you have a PayPal Account.
Simply put in my email: teaphotography@mac.com
but :bulletred:WAIT:bulletred: until we've agreed on your final TOTAL. :XD:

If you do NOT have PayPal, firstly it is super easy to set up the most basic type; if still this is not the route to go for you, I AM VERY OPEN TO DISCUSSING OTHER OPTIONS! :)

If I was 100% self-efficient, I could donate the full 100% and pay for/donate my own supplies etc., but being disabled/on a fixed income, this just isn't the case.
:note: However, due to success over the years...

we are entering the 3rd year of the 30% donation, over the previous almost five years of 25%! :la:

:iconbigpointsplz:

Now, (FINALLY) What Do You Get By Donating POINTS?


:iconloveyouplz:

This is going to be more informal than in previous years:

Admittedly, it is true that the more you are able to donate, the more I will do my best to make time for what I would :heart:LOVE:heart: to do for YOU!

Anything from 1 to 3,000 or to infinity and beyond... :points: points, WILL be acknowledged and/or rewarded, starting with the following, and working it's way toward more of what you see here:

rainbow paws web bullet by Xiahism An acknowledgement of gratitude, (a Llama if not previously given), a visit to your own gallery, a couple to MANY Fav's :+fav:'s on your work, a couple to several comments SWEET-ness Icon 03 by Gasara on your work- (and it will be work I genuinely like- & I tend to find something I like in everyone's work. :aww:
rainbow paws web bullet by Xiahism It is possible, that I will be able to request your work to Unframed-Nature , depending on your type of work. Your work will most likely show up in one or more of the various types of features I do on dA.
rainbow paws web bullet by Xiahism Promotion of your own work may appear in a Custom Box somewhere on my profile page, or featured at the bottom of this Points Pool Description for an unknown length of time. Additionally, I would be willing to Promote an Event or a Project of your own, and/or perhaps the same for a dA friend of yours- either within a journal, somewhere on profile page, or at the bottom of this Description box.
rainbow paws web bullet by Xiahism If you can think of anything else I could do that would be of help to you, please let me know. THIS, as well as the above paragraph would need to be reviewed simply to be certain that the event/project is legit and for helpful reasons.
Mini E-mail Icon by Gasara It is true that Email is still the best form for me, for significant communications.

:iconquestionmarkplz:BUT...
How Are Points Helpful to the Project?


Mostly, I've purchased 11x14 prints and mugs to sell at the shelter, animal hospital (vet), & events, such as the annual "MUTT STRUTT". Currently another location called Redwood Wellness Center, has agreed to showcase such products as well, and therefore POINTS :points: ARE needed!

I frame the prints myself, to save on :points: points, & make purchases more economical.

Here's an older sample of one of the walls at the actual SHELTER,
that had just some of JUST dogs and cats, that YOUR POINTS PURCHASED:
sta.sh/0113tc6f3cpf
(Mugs are on a shelf below this area).

WHAT WERE POINTS USED FOR, FROM 2017
I sold 4 existing mugs from the shelter, and created two custom mugs.
I sold these 11x14's from off of the wall at the shelter:
Hidden Joys of Jezel by TeaPhotography , Ode to The Good Listener by TeaPhotography ,
and created this:
Peggy Sue by TeaPhotography and this: Athena, Goddess of Dogs by TeaPhotography
into 11x14's taken & uploaded here long ago, the first as a request,
and the second as a gift for the recent passing of Athena.
The family has always been extremely supportive of "The Shelter Project"!

SO, this is what YOUR :points: POINTS allowed me to do, which helped immensely to earn actual funds for the animals in need.
Thank-you by vafiehya

~~~~~

What ELSE Could The Points Be For?


rainbow paws web bullet by Xiahism IF, your points ARE for "The Shelter Project"
-everything mentioned above-
PLEASE say so in the "Donors Comments" area.
This is vastly important for my accounting!


:star: If you want to GIFT points for some other specific reason, I would prefer if you tell me that, too, but of course you do not have to. :XD:
If you simply just want to GIFT me a couple points, that's okay, too, but I will still use them wisely for others.

If you do NOT make a comment... I may choose a different way to dispense points, unless "The Shelter Project" is quite in need of points.

Here's what I often do with points NOT designated for The Project:
I have MUCH interest in helping out certain :groups:'s
:groups: Some of them are, but are NOT limited to:

:groups: 's : Unframed-Nature, dAWishingWell,
DevNews, Fractal-Love TheJoyOfFlowers .....

Once in a while, I will give to an individual, especially if they give a reason for wanting/needing points, & especially if it seems they could really use this type of support. :aww:

MY GUILTY PLEASURE FOR USING POINTS THAT ARE NOT DESIGNATED FOR ANYTHING:
Giving out :iconcakebadgeplz: 's !
Each :iconcakebadgeplz: = 80 :points:

:heart: I JUST LOVE DOING THIS! :heart:
(Sometimes, it happens randomly, when it's not even on a Birthday!)

Thanks-smiley-emoticon by poisen2014
in advance to those who help me do these nice, good, fun things for OTHERS! :heart:

To those specifically HERE for DONATING TO:
"THE SHELTER PROJECT",
I either continue to thank you for your ongoing support...
OR, I do thank you in advance, if this is your FIRST TIME, helping out with this project, in any type of way, however much.
CONGRATS on BECOMING PART OF SOMETHING RATHER BIG.

It DOES take a TEAM. The Project isn't ME; It is WE.
There is NO way, I could do anything like this by myself. :faint:
Thank you for being a part of "The Shelter Project" TEAM!

FABULOUS WORK BY ALL ARTISTS!

Note RULES FOR SUGGESTING:


DO FEEL FREE TO SUGGEST THE WORK OF OTHERS, AS YOU DEEM THEM TO BE SUPER AWESOME, AND BELIEVE SUCH WORK SHOULD BE FURTHER VIEWED!

1. Suggest up to TWO, maximum, (in a comment below), MUCH Preferably Work of OTHERS!

One is fine, TWO is MAX.
It is preferable that you suggest ONE work PER EACH Artist. :) (Smile)

2. The work should NOT have more than 299 fav's at the time that you suggest the work.

300+ fav's on a work, may certainly be awesome enough to be even further viewed, but we are mostly looking for work that should have more attention.

3. Neither you nor the artist, need to be a Member of this Group,

Note but feel FREE to Join! Aww

4. All-media is welcomed; MOST subject-matter is, too - simply use a good judgement.

We've not had trouble with this so much in the past, but I know other types of news articles in other groups have, so I just thought I'd mention it.

*** Depending on how this goes, I may have to stop at the first 10 or 12 suggesters, but we'll just see how this goes and flows, for now. It is NOT a rule at the moment. I need to keep in mind what is manageable for me, in order to attempt to continue this. I am not certain what that is at this point.

Lastly, if you feel like suggesting, go right ahead... and your suggestions will be reflected in next month's dAWishingWell 's 2018 Treasure Chest!

The photos used for this video can be found HERE: teaphotography.deviantart.com/…

This amazing video was made for me, by my dearest friend Teresa :icontigles1artistry:
as a surprise gift...
She wanted to make this video to place in her Custom Box on her own Profile Page where she is so very generously promoting The Shelter Project: teaphotography.deviantart.com/… :rose:

Not long after, she also made yet another one which contains more of my animal work, and is more particularly about The Shelter Project: teaphotography.deviantart.com/… :rose:

And... HERE IT IS:
:iconlovesqueeplz:


The photos used in this video can be found HERE: teaphotography.deviantart.com/…
and from a number of other Sub-Galleries of mine. :aww:

And, THEN, as also a BIG Part of The Shelter Project she created another video to support my hand-crafted jewelry that also donates funds for the animals, through purchases:


She'd made THIS one for my birthday!
Teresa never ceases to amaze me with her creativity in seeking out ways to support this worthy cause for animals! :heart:

:note: To SEE ALL JEWELRY which Supports the Animals of THE SHELTER PROJECT, GO HERE: teaphotography.deviantart.com/…

MY OTHER WISH LIST:

You, Me, Other Things, and Groups

... Under the "ME" Section, & in small script.

Stars Purple by daniya-ART

Tea's Medical Help & Wellness Wishlist



I won't be linking it again in any other journal, but mentioned I would place it on my Profile Page with my dA Wish List. :heart:

I was only going to keep it up for a year (thru Dec. of 2017), but for I humbly decided to keep it, because...

:bulletgreen: One of the biggest "things" I've learned during 2017, is that there are no cures for ANY of my disorders/illnesses, AND so, in order to maintain any health at all, I will need to choose from various specialists, therapies and activities, including regular check-ins with my primary care and my regular neurologist for the rest of my life.

Unfortunately this means I will always have high medical bills and medical/health needs.

Again it remains that I will NOT ask for money directly- I just can't & won't. However as it has happened anyway a couple of times, I either sent something of art in return, or shared it with "The Shelter Project".

Anyway, as to this wishlist itself,
Those who know me BEST, KNOW how much I take generosity extremely seriously- even if YOU think it's very small,
even a kind encouraging word to me, takes time & effort.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: to anyone in some position to be of support to me.
:huggle: :happycry: :huggle: :happycry: :huggle:

Editorials on 3 Treasures From The Well's Sept.Treasure Chest

From the :groups: :icondawishingwell:
and this News Article HERE:

The Well's September 2018 Treasure Chest


:new: I am going to TRY to start something NEW by choosing THREE works from THE TREASURE CHEST from PART TWO, (the ones I have chosen for the Article), and taking it a couple steps further by expressing why I chose it as a treasure in a bit more of a personal way.
So beginning here:

:iconmetal-bender: Here Comes the Rain Again by Metal-Bender
"I love umbrellas in art... in photography, or in traditional work... I think with one lone person under it, in rainy weather, I get the feeling of growing inward with the change in seasons or weather- a recurring theme for me. This wondrously emotive piece here is unique because of the feeling that someone is looking onto the child- perhaps wondering after her, how she is doing, how she is growing up, how she is interpreting the world around her. This onward looking is made through the raindrops on the glass that divides them, which is beautifully done. It's a very soulful piece."

Avatar 25 by smault23 Avatar 25 by smault23 Avatar 25 by smault23

:iconwhimsicalblue: When your heart cries... by WhimsicalBlue
"This is a very moving piece. It captures the mood and feelings perfectly. Maybe it's the downward cast look of the eyes, the textures used- especially the way it looks across the face and skin, the colours used, or all of it together. Either way, it's a combined, well-balanced, beautiful piece. The rose on top of the head seems very significant, since roses are often associated with the heart, and given the title, it appears perfect. I adore this heart-felt piece very much.</i>

:iconarte-de-junqueiro: The PicnicI stand on the hill, watching.
A little below, close to the trees, the friends are starting to arrive.
Everyone knows this place – we have all walked here so many times.
Then we had no other plans than to walk and explore. We had energy to burn.
Now a picnic would be fun. Some hours in the sun, some sandwiches, salad, some drinks.
Maybe there will be some news to share; families, sadness and joy, everyday things.
It’s almost half a century since we were all last here.
The skyline has changed, I prefer it as it was before.
Now there are many more “tourists”.
We have changed too. Some more mellow, some less so. Many reasons why.
Our lives and circumstances have all changed – some dramatically so!
Life is no picnic..


To be honest, I admire anyone who is courageous enough to put their innermost thoughts into words online in the form of poetry, prose, short stories etc. Lately, I've had some encouragement by a couple of dA friends to do just that myself. I don't know how to get past that initial hurdle. Mel here, has always been an EXCELLENT WRITER here on dA, for as long as he's been, here (I think), and I am impressed not just by his courage, but by his actual literature works. He is very talented and not afraid to write in honesty and from the heart. This piece here is no different. It is about change, and how difficult it is to accept change, and for me, it causes me to wonder how not all change is good, but that not all change is bad either, and how to discern which from which at times. This outstanding written work, expresses the utter twist of irony very well, using "picnic" as the theme. I love written works that really give important food for thought, and that is exactly what this wonderful work of literature does!

THANK YOU!
