Painting and Insect Adventure Set

Hi! I created a couple of items to help us get to the Chromosome 18 conference this July in San Antonio!

(Added by Mom: Thomas’ older sister, Lillian, has 18p-. We plan on driving from Reno as this seems to be the least expensive option. If need be, we will take a tent and camp at campgrounds on the way down. Should take about three or four days. Thanks a million for taking a look at Thomas’ creations!)

I’m selling a painting of a leaf I made with a sunset in the background. (Added by my mom: It is made using recycled materials, acrylic paint, sealant, and made ready to hang.) Here’s a picture of it:

I am asking for at least $20 (plus $5 for shipping if you are not local to Reno). I’ll leave the final price open to you. Please use this PayPal link and enter your amount.

I’m also selling a nature adventures set. Here’s a picture of it, along with ideas of what to do with it. (Mom added this: The possibilities of how to use this set is only limited by your imagination. You can also add your own pieces to it. Hand painted and decorated storage container made using recycled materials.)

And last but not least, I’m selling prints of the mini-figure 365 Photo A Day series.

(Added by my mom: You will receive an 8 X 10 print on high quality paper. The photo series is currently being made into a book! These are being sold as part of pre-ordering the book. Tentatively titled Grand Adventures of the Biggest Little Photographer. Visit this link to learn more.)

Painted Rocks By Thomas

Hi!

I had been asking my Mom what I could do to help support our trip to The Chromosome 18 Conference this July 2016 in San Antonio, Texas and to help with day-to-day things.

She told me to do something that brings me happiness and joy and that I like doing. I love painting rocks. So, I hand painted 10 rocks in various colors and styles. These are special rocks. They are from Boca Reservoir and Washoe Lake. The Boca Reservoir rocks were collected Fall 2014 and the Washoe Lake rocks were collected from the DRY lake bed in Fall 2015.

While painting some of the rocks I described to my mom some thoughts I felt. She suggested I include that information as a message with those particular rocks.

I am selling them $10 for the rocks only and $15 for the rocks with a message (plus $5 for shipping). You are welcome to offer more if it feels right to you. If you would like to offer more for your rock, use this link AFTER you have already made your purchase below.

All of the rocks.

All of the rocks.

Spread Love With Love Cards

Thomas Bookmark Design May 2015

I want to help my family get to the 18p- conference this year so I am selling love cards. You pass the cards around to spread the love! On the back you can add your own messages. (My mom helped me write this post.)

My family (Team TLC) attends the Chromosome 18 Registry conference every year. My sister, Lillian, has a chromosome abnormality called 18p-. This conference is an opportunity for us to be with other families who have a family member with a chromosome 18 abnormality and learn about the latest research.

It’s important to me to attend the conference because I am friends with Lillian’s peers and because I get to talk and share with other siblings. I participate in the sibling panel and I think it’s so important and helpful.

I want to help pay for our hotel room this year. It’s $169 night! So I decided to use a bookmark design that I submitted for a bookmark contest. I won runner up!

In June 2014, I mailed myself a letter through the U.S. mail. My mom, Camilla, said I sent myself a “love letter”. Ever since then my mom has been wanting to use the love letter idea in a way to spread love to others.

So, we designed a small two sided card for people to use when they spread a random act of love to another. One side let’s the receiver know that they have just received a random act of love and the other side has my bookmark art with space for the giver to write a personal message.

Use these cards to spread love and there’s room on one side to write a custom message. Maybe one day it will come back to you!

First, these cards are to encourage more people to spread kindness and love and second, for more people to be mindful and notice when they have been the recipient of kindness and love.

My mom feels that sometimes we get so caught up in our thoughts that we don’t notice an opportunity to spread love and don’t notice when someone has shared love and kindness with us.

They can be used to simply pay someone a compliment, pick up the tab for another, give an extra big tip, leave on a windshield with an encouraging note, and for any other acts of love and kindness that you can imagine.

These cards will continue to be for sell after the conference too. My sister is selling prints of her artwork to help with the conference too! Also, my mom is selling prints of her Heart Art.

One Side:

ishot-1080

Other Side:

ishot-1079

Now for the fun part! You get to choose the price you pay. My mom actually prefers to call it a “love offering”. YOU choose your love offering! ($5.00 will be added to the love offering for shipping & handling.) You will receive 20 (twenty) cards with which to spread love. They are standard business card size.


You Choose Your Price!




**If you choose an extra generous purchase option, we will spread the love by gifting cards to others and spreading financial acts of love.

Let’s Celebrate! 170 Days of LEGO Photographer Photos

Hi! I’m celebrating 170 days of taking and posting a LEGO photo a day on instragram! Every day I post a photo of a LEGO camera man taking a photo. I’ve added a hint of mystery in that you never get to see Mr. LEGO’s mans face. 

To celebrate reaching the almost 6 month mark, I am selling my LEGO photo a day photos starting at $19. I will use the money to pay for my computer coding and 3D modeling class (see the attached flyer). Any money left over will be donated to Team TLC. Thank you to my Mom’s friend, Stepnanie Stokes, for the idea!

thomas nclab 2014                                                                                    

8 X 10 Matte prints on photographic archival quality paper are $19 (plus shipping and handling) each (bulk discount available). Gallery wrap canvas starts at $79 (plus shipping and handling). I will place an order every Friday. Meaning, if you order a print on Monday, I will order your print from the supplier on Friday.

This is the first photo that one of my Mom’s awesome friends, Stephanie, purchased. It’s her favorite!

Visit my instagram store and if you see one you want to purchase comment with your Paypal email address. We will send a Paypal invoice. If you don’t have an instragram account, visit my instagram website (no account needed), and comment to this post which Day # you want to order. Thank you for your support.

The LEGO Group in no way endorses this project and has nothing to do with it.

Something is there!

(Rising music)
Something creepy,
One night,
I turned around,
And to my surprise,
Something was there!
A moon crisis,
I thought it was,
But,
I WAS WRONG!
(Crisis music)
I made it one night,
It rose,
I made a mad dash,
But,
When I ran outside,
I ran into,
The cemetery!
Ghost’s were rising,
Zombies were digging,
Bats were flying!
I flew home,
Locked doors and windows,
Closed all blinds,
I checked the date,
Guess what it said,
OCTOBER 31!

warning!
