Tuesday Updates!

Ok so I am giving you all a few things that have been going on to update you on the Roawenwood. Even though I am making sure to not overextend myself as much in world I still am trying to keep things interesting.

I have been working with MadPea more, I like games. I think bringing people in and actually getting you doing something around the place is an awesome way rather than just sending you arbitrarily shopping. I know in the end it might hit my bottom line a little bit but really, I mean come on. There’s more to life and Second Life than running to the latest shopping event.

I’ve been looking at a few other things too. Organizations or events to give back a little bit more. So if you have things you believe in. Send them my way, I’ll look into them.

As far as all of that today is Tuesday! Which means you get a discount or new item marked down to next to nothing. This week it’s a little bit of both. Not something in normal store inventory rotation, and some seasonal fun. Ta dah! I just love this stuff.

25L today and tomorrow only

So onto the next. There’s a few things, Trick or Treat Lane as well as the Fallen Gods Anniversary celebration.

Alia is celebrating something like 12 years, so he’s almost as old as I am. Scary that. Every year he does a little something and by a little I mean not so little. Alia doesn’t like to do anything small. Contests, a market, a hunt, events, dances, parties. Geez I don’t know how he does it but he does. As part of his market I made up a little something. And then as part of his hunt a little something else as part of the prizes.

Fallen Gods Market Item

Free Hunt Gift

So to get in on the hunt fun you have to go here to get the HUD, and then go to all the stores… find the orb that is hidden on each one then you get to go to the prize vault where you gather up all the presents. You see now why I say Alia never does anything small? *laughs*

TP TO ALIA’S ANNIVERSARY MARKET

Trick or Treat Lane is a little easier. I have a gift out there that you can pick up in front of my stall, much much easier. What I have up for sale there is just some fun for the Halloween crowd.

So good!
Gift for Trick or Treat

>> TAXI!!! GO HERE TO GET TO TRICK OR TREAT <<

Basically that is what I have for updates. I’m kind of keeping this post simple because with all the pictures and all of those things I don’t know how much story you’re looking to see.

Maybe we’ll have a story time soon. That might be nice. I’m thinking of bringing you all into some stuff in world.

Take care, have fun, and come visit!!

October. Already?!

Twisted hunt is done and so for a brief period you are all safe again from the madness. The month slipped past before I realized it though I have if you’ve been listening in on the mailing list participating in a few newer events.

Weekend sales and in store things. I like these, brings you to me and then I get to spoil you.

Up and coming things, MadPea has a couple things they’re letting me play in. I’m very excited for that.

Writing this up mainly because it’s been a little too long since touching base. There’s a new line that was started. A more Viking inspired sort of furniture set that has a few pieces out at the main landing.

Rugged, rougher wood. I’m hoping to add to it over time much like I did the Vilnai series.

Have you seen this?

It’s a medieval sort of stage, loosely inspired by festivals. Of course with my own flair for the dramatic. It looks really good and in the vendors in the role play section.

I have a lot of product stuck in inventory that I will be highlighting so maybe I’ll start making a post once in awhile just to refresh the memory.

Talk to you soon and have a good one.

TWISTED!!

Heya!! So now that the opening blubbery post is done there is the next one.

The one that actually TELLS you what’s going on besides me being all sniffly because it feels like I’m letting you all see my baby. Sniff.

Anyhow….

Twisted Hunt started today! OMG!

I’ve been doing this for so so long and I love love love it. Always. I have a gift out too……. woot! But besides that there is a HUGE ass sale going on just for today.

Since I was re-opening and it is the beginning of not only Twisted Hunt but the Renaissance Hunt I decided to go for it and put the store at a 50% discount/refund thingie for the day.

September 1st Only there is 50% off the entire store excluding gift cards.

All vendors, all things… slashed.

Not a bad deal I suppose.

I’ll be hopefully adding to the Twisted fun things. I’m going to be doing more stuff this month getting things around and have a lot of plans up and coming.

So…………

There be two free hunt gifts around the landing.

One for the Renaissance Hunt and one for Twisted Hunt! Those are the latest newsworthy pieces along with the 50% off sale and re-opening of the store.

Have a good one and take care. Talk soon.

So it’s done

Relatively speaking that is. There is always something to be done, or a place that can be changed. Tweaked. There’s always a thing that you think should be switched around or redone however….

With all of that being said….

The sim is “done”.

The build is open for business, and for your viewing pleasure. There’s a lot to this particular build and it isn’t going to really change much anytime soon. There’s a bit of story, lore and history to it.

It’s really magnificent in my opinion. I love it. I know it isn’t the easiest for shopping. I also know there are a lot of changes to it that will make some shoppers wince. Vendors and things… spaced apart, sections all over but damn…. Sometimes flying through. Or finding a really pretty little spot to overlook the waterfalls. The spots that lead up and out on those massive stairs with beauty just swallowing you up whole and immersing you in a different world.

This is part of my world. The world I wanted to share. It is a crossroads sort of build. It isn’t here nor there. It isn’t above ground but it isn’t entirely below ground either.

Caves, and dark spots with mushrooms glowing, crystals shimmering all the while magic carpets of ivy and grass bring color into a world that could be dark but isn’t. The sun shining down over the top of the world that has been created. Trees, bushes and butterflies. Massive waterfalls to the depths below while cliffs rise from the ground.

This isn’t just a store and it never will be again. It’s something more, it’s a safe place. A place of healing, a place of solitude and serenity.

I hope you will share it. I want people to just come, I want them to come even if they never spend a single solitary linden. I want people to experience it and enjoy it. That’s what this life is all about and if people find in it what I did. If people can use it as a crossroads within their life to find the light as they struggle to come out of the darkness……

Well then…..

Then there are no real words to express what I’m thinking or feeling.

Come visit. Wander the misty pools that glimmer and breathe.

Welcome to the Roawenwood.

Teleport to the Sim

Building of a temple…

Obviously lately I am feeling like a story teller. Really though this isn’t all that different from where I began or who I am anyhow. I’ve always liked to tell stories.

To entertain, to talk. Sometimes I talk too much which would surprise some of you since I’ve become so very quiet too.

I am working on so many things at the moment that my plate isn’t just full, it’s overflowing. A lot of really good things too both in world and in the real world. It’s been an amazing summer so far even though there was a hitch with the spring. It never wanted to end. A LOT of rain. My backyard is more like a swampy pond area than a backyard this year but it’s been good.

When I am in world I can be found working mostly and I’ve been in more lately than in recent history. I’ve found my footing I think. Where I want to be and who I want to be. Finally.

Instead of worrying about if my store build is going to be this or that or will be good for shopping. Worrying who it will annoy if I make it how I like, or what kind of business I might get… I would get obsessive about these little pieces. The little details, over thinking every little thing. Not letting the artist shine, not putting to rest the less important things.

So I’m building my temple.

I’m going to share it with you all. One of my big shares. Some of you will recognize parts of it when you come after it is complete. It has it’s own history already. It’s own lore if you will.

Stories, legends and myths surrounding what it is, and it is glorious for that. A build with feeling, life, and sentiment. I couldn’t let it go, and I don’t think it was meant to be let go. Not yet.

A tiny bubble in the online world kept but modified. I have been thinking about releasing all the lore and stories as part of the re-opening process or just in general.

It seems like a fine way to begin the celebration that is my 13 years in Second Life and you’re all invited. I may not throw really big parties but I am celebrating and I am going to be doing a lot of little things I think to commemorate this milestone throughout the course of the rest of this year.

I get to say I’m a teenager again!

I was hell the first time around, wonder what’s in store this time.

Much love and talk to you soon.
