Well, I do want your gold but I'll settle for points!! :D

Points by TuxedoToaster

Over the next 2 1/2 months I have 3 groups due to renew super group status -

My very special favourite group (Cause I started this one from scratch :) )

:iconall-fractal-art: All-Fractal-Art Super group renews 14th October


:iconthejoyofflowers: TheJoyOfFlowers 14th November


:iconunframed-nature: Unframed-Nature 2nd December

:iconthejoyofflowers: TheJoyOfFlowers has a point account here - :iconjoyofflowerspoints:

:iconunframed-nature: Unframed-Nature has a points account here - :iconunframed-nature-pts:

:iconall-fractal-art: doesn't have a points account for itself.

I have a points widget on my page where you can donate for any of my groups and you can say if you want it to go to a particular group

- :iconbgai:

I would really appreciate any help you can offer!

I try to support donors in various ways like faving their art to my 'special people' folder or specific folders for donors in the groups, plus journals specifically for people who donate, to say thank you and to give their art more exposure.

My thanks goes to all these wonderful people who have donated at my page or one of the groups over the last 12 months!!

From :iconthejoyofflowers:

It's coming to the end of winter in my part of the world so I thought it would be nice to put together just a few of the flowers images in our 'featured' folder to give us (me) a reminder of spring.

Enjoy this feature and I hope you show the artists your appreciation :)
