Stitch-n-Sew Challenge #1Challenge theme: Green
It's our first group challenge! Every month (or so) we'll have a different theme that you're invited to participate in. Feel free to take the theme and be as creative as you like! This month we are using the color green for our inspiration.
The Monthly Challenge is not a contest.
It is a great a way to encourage inspiration (and use up some of your supplies!).
Only work created during the Challenge month is accepted (new submissions only).
If it is something that you would normally submit to this group, you can submit it to the challenge.
A new folder will be provided for you to submit your work into. Please make sure to add your work to the Challenge folder so it can stand out!

The Lonely Whale’s Cry for Love
52 Hertz Whale:
Is Anyone Out There?
Each year he makes his migration south from the Aleutian Islands to a breeding area in the Pacific Ocean parallel to Central California, looking for a mate. Unlike other blue and fin whales, his more than 6000 miles a year round-trip swim is a solitary one. He does not travel along with the blues or the fins, because he is neither. He is most probably either a hybrid blu

Deal With It!
Fire Ferrets 3 Korra Mako and Bolin
The Legend of Korra
Fans sadly bid adieu to the The Legend of Korra series as its run on Nickelodeon came to a close this past December. A sequel to the popular Avatar: The Last Airbender, the series takes place 70 years after Avatar and follows 17 year old Korra as she tries to master the last element needed to become a full Avatar.
Strength and Discipline
When “strength” is the topic, do you think of physical or machine power—or of will power and determination to achieve the goals of your cause?
Relative to size, no human being has ever been as powerful as a common ant. And one person’s life ambition is often another person’s conception of total madness. Context and perspective is everything — as you’ll find illustrated by perusing the following gallery of ima
Leonard Nimoy: Millennial Renaissance Man
Millennial Renaissance Man ACTOR, DIRECTOR, POET, PHOTOGRAPHER LEONARD NIMOY PASSES INTO ETERNITY

In a business of massive ego and terrible behavior directed at slicing and dicing their competition, Leonard Nimoy was known as a total gentleman, a class act all the way and a consummate professional at every turn.
For several generations around the globe he will be forever “Mr. Spock,” the half-human, half-Vulcan first office
Fan Art Friday: Muppets
FAN ART FRIDAY: Wocka! Wocka!
The Muppets are celebrating their 60th birthday this year!
Jim Henson created the group of puppets back in 1955 for his first TV show, called “Sam and Friends.” Henson said the term Muppet had emerged from a combination of “marionette” and “puppet.” Henson’s wildly imagined collection of characters has been delighting children and adults with their absurd antics and comedic sketches ever since.

Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci couldn’t stand each other
You might think that the two artists, who both lived in Florence in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, could’ve learned from one another, shared secrets, or otherwise bonded over their mutual passion. Instead, each thought of the other as inferior. An anonymous Florentine author, known

They knew there would be no escaping the security measures of the Arizona “llama ranch” where they were incarcerated, spending their days growing out their woolen coats, greatly valued by hipster trendsetters. They received no benefit from their wool, expropriated with no recompense by their rancher overlords. They were allowed to live so long as the quality of their wool remained high. But there would be n
Valentine's Day Art Exchange 2015 Wrap-UpValentine's Day Art Exchange 2015 Wrap-Up!
February often signals the spark of new or lasting love, and this February was no different, marking the fourth annual Valentine’s Day Art Exchange! This year’s event was a grand success, with over 23,000 deviants sending over 130,000 valentines!
Not to be outdone by last year’s event, almost 10,000 artists created and submitted Valentine-themed deviations to the 2015 Valentine Exchange category, a nearly 50% increase from the number of artists who took part in 2014! We also saw deviants spread the love even more than in previous years, as over 65,000 deviants received a valentine.
We’re always happy to see positivity and good feelings withi
