Looking for a nice beaded necklace for someone special or just for yourself?  I recently started my own beaded jewelry website of handmade one of a kind beaded necklaces with some matching earrings called MiriBeth Beads.  I have a special 20% off Coupon going until September 30th use GPLUS at checkout.  All are semi-precious and other natural materials with some sterling silver pieces, and none are over $60USD with most in the $30 to $45 range with 20% off right now.  I will be adding new items from time to time and am designing new items each week.

Phase One Meet 4 year old Dyllon. Like most 4 year olds he likes books and movies and computers; unlike most, he is battling leukemia.  So the G+ handcraft and small business community is coming together to assist his Mom, +Jamie White  by offsetting some financial costs. 

Phase One is where you come in. If you can participate by selling or auctioning a piece of your work and donating the proceeds to #helpfordyllon  then please join our community at https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/105287632952313684700.
Simply post your item using the hastag and help out by sharing the catse.

Phase 2 ~ For those who would like to get an early start to holiday gift buying , or merely receive a lovely hand-made or hand-produced product or service, keep an eye on #helpforgyllon  posts in your stream, make a purchase or help spread the word.

Am sharing here. If interested, please let +Beth Akerman know.  
 
Would one or two of my artist or artistic photographer friends like to join me in a joint art project, and online art gallery/exhibition?  I am trying to get back into the swing of my ink drawings, and thought a joint project would be fun and motivating to produce some new work.  I was thinking of a theme like "Lines, Curves and Dots" or the "The Eyes Have It" or "Starts With An X".  Of course you would work in your own style, and I in mine, and we would do a minimum of 5 works each, and then put them together for an online art exhibition to be shown here on G+ and then on any personal website and or blog.  We would then also be able to offer the original works (each handling their own) and/or make prints available of the works.  If anyone is interested in doing this project with me, or knows of a G+ artist who might be, please let me know.

#gpluscollecting  The rich have their Jeff Koons and Damien Hirsts, and collections of Impressionists, Picassos, and Old Masters.  I though it would be fun to see how many of us regular people here on Gplus collect the work of others Google Plus People, and see their collections.  Do you collect prints from G+ Photographers, from +Joe Azure +Jay Patel  or +Athena Carey ? Do you collect original pieces of artwork,  from +Lena Levin or +Terrill Welch ? Do you collect Google Plus books, like the Plus One Collection put together by +Ivan Makarov or the How We See It book I compile for charity?  Do you collect awesome nature books by +Mike Spinak , fun items by +Paul Stickland , jewelry by +Jewelry by Rita Sunderland, or do you collect photos from G+ photo walks or photos with other G+ people you have met.  If you answered yes, to any of the above, please share your collections, and use the hashtag #gpluscollecting  Let's see how many Gplus Collections are out there.  I will start if off with just part of my Gplus Collection.

#helpfordyllon  A chance to get a signed 5 x7 inch print of this Dyllon approved Rooster Portrait. SEE BELOW FOR PRINT GIVEAWAY DETAILS!!!! As some of you have seen in my posts from the day,  I and a number of other G+ Photographers, Artists and Crafters are providing some financial assistance to a dear G+ friend +Jamie White and her family to help to defray the costs of her 4 year-old son, Dyllon's battle with leukemia.  Donations to the family should be made directly to their PayPal account Adam.white17@gmail.com, and I just made one myself.  Various auctions of items donated by the G+ Community will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks under the #helpfordyllon  hashtag and the Community https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/105287632952313684700  NOW HOW TO  GET A 5 x7 inch SIGNED ROOSTER PORTRAIT PRINT.  Private message me here on G+ or email me at akermansart@gmail.com with documentation of your donation to the family's PayPal account (a screenshot of the acknowledgement page is fine, you can cross out the amount of the donation) with your address, and the first 10 people who do so will get a signed print sent directly to them from me.  When all ten prints are gone I will post in the comment section that they are gone.  Also, look for my first auction item later today or tomorrow.

This green thistle was waving in the wind along with the cattail fronds on Saturday at the park during a brief break in the rain.
