We welcome each one of you and your support!
A GRAND Welcome to ALL of Our
And a HUGE
thank you to all of you loyal Members who have been submitting your most fabulous
Nature Work to our Group for a long time now.
Without you, we just simply wouldn’t be here. THIS
time our Admins. voted on our FOUR main folders for these two months, and I want to take this moment
to THANK THEM BIG-TIME for taking their time to do that! Over half did that for us, and I am very
time we will be back to a FULL MEMBERSHIP Voting, so we'll see you then!
Let’s continue to submit our own BEST QUALITY work, enjoy it, improve upon it, enjoy the work of others, and Nature in general. It’s what it’s all about-
combining our love of Art with our love of Nature, and coming together under that commonality!
Without further ado...Please Enjoy The Voted Top Submissions of NOVEMBER-DECEMBER.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL SELECTED!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ FROM OUR FOUR SPECIAL FOLDERS...
A Few Chosen Via Founder-Choice...
These FOUR folders were added a year ago, for the precise purpose to seek to broaden and deepen the meaning of our Group in a variety of ways, in general to cause us to think about Nature and its fragility and persistency and our human relationship to it.

Other "Animal Welfare" Issues
The above are super pieces! Please...

From: Humans, Architecture, & Transportation in NATURE
Today's WeatherUnable to decide, the day changed back and forth,
Attempting to accessorize its weather,
Between the sunshine scarf and strands of snowflake pearls,
And even tried to wear the two together.
From: Still Life, Concepts, Abstract, Crafts, Fantasy in NATURE
From: Holiday-Winter THEME 2014: Snowy or Decorated TREE Dearest Members AND Admins.,
I was incredibly amazed by the "wonderworld" which I encountered with in this gorgeous folder!
Thank you to ALL who participated in this lovely little theme- MORE participated than I thought, and it was truly a REAL TREAT for the eyes! Anyway, I rarely vote on ANYTHING within my own group- I have reasons for that- two of them are: TIME, and MORE SO, it is just way too hard for me to do it, - We have awesome artists in this group... thank you all for participating-
AND, extra thanks to those Admins., who worked this folder the most, when the rest of the group remained closed.
SO HERE WE ARE!!!
25 HONOURABLE MENTIONS
All of the above will be moved to the FEATURED FOLDER, and therefore
'd by our POINTS ACCOUNT at:Unframed-Nature-PTS

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Our Group’s MEMBERS of THE MONTH
Thank you to these fabulous Members who have been loyal to our Group in various ways, and for a while now!
For example, doing things like:
Voting in THIS here- our Monthly Event, Supporting our Articles with Comments and/or Fav's, Supporting our Themes by Participating in them and Promoting them, Supporting our CONTESTS by participating and promoting and/or donating prizes/points, supporting the group through donating points, or helping out other members when they have a question and by faving each other's work, or simply submitting work regularly, and even other ways, too!
(Of course NO single MEMBER of the MONTH is doing ALL of these, that doesn't seem possible!... but there are some Members, WHO strive as much as they can...
How kind and generous of them!
We are very grateful for all they do and for being such valuable Members of our Group here!
andoffermoord Introducing Our Newest Admin.Team Member!
Christian is our newest addition to our Admin. Team! We welcome him, and we are happy to have him aboard! However he is not completely new to Unframed-Nature
because he had been a loyal Member of our Group for a very long time by now. Here is a small feature of his wonderful work!Clu-art Becoming A Part of Unframed-Nature's Admin. TEAM
If you would be interested in becoming a part of our Wonderful Admin. TEAM,PLEASE NOTE ME, TeaPhotography
You should LOOK at our APPLICATION, first, and answer as many questions as you can or just simply feel like answering.
It's SO much more INFORMAL than it actually looks- REALLY!
It just gives us, the Admins., a little idea, as well as YOU, our newest Admin., a general idea of things.
Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
Before you apply, please know that volunteering for a large and active group here on dA, such as Unframed-Nature is a real and true commitment, which will take up some of your time on at least a weekly basis, maybe more.
Unframed-Nature is special in many ways, but from an Administrative view point, it is very special because we have always had good luck with our current Administrators, most of which have been with the Group, as Administrators, for a very long time.
We are a very friendly Team, both with each other, and with the Members, as well. This means when we do have to decline works, we do give a reason, and we are friendly about it. It means, that upon occasion if there is something that we disagree about within the Admin. Team, we disagree nic
You do NOT
have to be qualified in every area, AT ALL, to become a part of the team!
I certainly am not!
So think about it, and if you are a Member of our group, and would like to be involved a bit more,
WE just might be the GROUP for YOU! Unframed-Nature's UpComing News Articles
