One of The Most Moving Gifts I've Ever Received... In Life, Created by Candy candysamuels
"Tea by Candy" The self-portrait I am holding in this photo, is a traditional work done by the extremely remarkably talented Candy Samuels candysamuels This was the original upload: Then she mailed it!
She's such a dear, sweet friend, who is simply FABULOUS!
This gift was such a unique surprise for me, and I'll always feel moved by her amazing kindness.
This amazing video was made for me, by my dearest friend Teresa 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/…
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/…
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!

A feature of Teresa's 's stunning work:
I thank you profoundly, my dearest Teresa, as this is so very special to me from the bottom bottom of my heart- the same way I am always truly humbled by your ongoing support and friendship! You are a fabulous and beautiful friend!

Sometimes, certain quotes & music lyrics can reflect bits of me here and there, the way my own writings and photography can. But it's difficult to truly presume to know me, no matter how much is on one website, or in one gallery... I run deep and I've lived broad...

ATTZ. OF GRATZ. #37
Welcome to "ATTZ. of GRATZ." whether it's your FIRST time here, or if you've been participating for a while. I've been trying to keep this going since Sept. 2018.
If you're new, and this seems interesting enough to you, feel free to just jump right on in!
Many of us have been on Lock-Down or Self-Quarantine for a long time. For a lot of us, it's easy to feel stir crazy and forget to think about things that are good and what we can be grateful for. Coming here used to be helpful, a place to escape, but thinking about Eclipse becomes worrisome the closer it is getting.
