Did you know….

That Roawenwood started out in a garage sale?

Way back in 2006-2007 one of the ways that people made a little bit of spending cash was the garage/yard sales. You could have a small little spot usually costing nothing where you could rezz a couple things.

I rented from Anshe Chung. She was THE name for rentals. She was essentially the land baron that owned it all and one of the perks was they had a garage sale for its residents, if you rented from her you could put out stuff in this sand box sort of thing. Anywhere. Just… drop it.

It was a huge mess with a ton of really bad builds but it was where I started oh so long ago. I was so nervous… Putting myself out there, creating. There was another one I frequented to put out a build or two owned by a private citizen.

I would find them, and put out little pieces. My very first ones were sun bathing towels with a few animations in them, a sun lounger with an umbrella. Though the term animation is used loosely. They were usually poses. Stiff and unyielding… at the time very hard to find, and IF you found actual animations that moved you moved heaven and earth to get them because damnit, they weren’t really available. The sun lounger did pretty good actually.

It was a simpler time, kind of. Most of the time people didn’t ask for much. And once a week or so the garage sale would be wiped clean, all the prims returned and I’d have to go back. Lay it out again, and wait to see what would happen. Trying to find a little spot in the sand.

Of course… it wasn’t Roawenwood then, and we are still a little bit away from where I actually had a “store” or land for it but that is how it all began.

A new Roawenwood

I realized something the other day.

I’m going to be 13 years old in Second Life this month.

Thirteen.

It’s strange how time goes by and the thing is. Thirteen years in Second Life seems like many many lifetimes. I think that SL years are kind of like dog years. You know, for every one it’s really something like seven. It feels that way doesn’t it? So if we went by that then….. I’m almost something like 91 years old.

Ouch right? But you know sometimes that’s how it feels, *laughs*

So why am I here right now, why am I talking to you.

I’m going to do the thing that all of you dread. Well maybe not exactly but whenever I say the following words most people who know me wince and say ‘oh god,’.

I’m rebuilding Roawenwood. I’ve been working on it over the past month or two on a different sim and I’m going to begin bringing it over this week. What does this mean? That the main store is going to be unavailable. I might keep a landing up above so I can still do things like 25L among other things. We’ll see.

I wish I had all my marketplace listings up to date but I don’t quite yet. I will be working on those as I can. I have satellite stores in a couple spots, and events still so I’ll be doing what I can but it’s time.

Time for something different. I’m going back to my roots even though at the same time I am moving forward.

It’s long overdue. My friends, my group members, my family and all those who I have had contact with over the years. Thank you. Thank you so much for sharing the journey. I love each of you.

Here’s to the next chapter. It’s going to be glorious.

Look forward to more coming from me, maybe some teases. Maybe some gifts. Maybe some of just…. me! Since I know you’re all here for that anyhow right?

Have a great day… and I look forward to talking to you all again very soon.

We just love our RP

It’s the beginning of the month so I am SWAMPED. All sorts of events starting or opening but February just seems like one of those months where everyone wants to do a little something something.

Today We <3 RP opens up. It’s a great event and I’ve been blessed by being allowed to participate from the very beginning. Years ago. This month I decided to redo an old one into this cute little set. It was a part of my pottery line and this one is the Quaint Potter.

The Quaint Potter Set; available at We <3 RP

The set itself is not large in the sense that it is made with a smaller scale. A little thing that will fit into even the smallest spaces if you want to be able to role play out something like a potter. Or if you want it outside you can. A table with rags, lump of clay and water on it. The wheel and a stool to sit. There is one work animation for the potter, and then there are 12 single ground sits. Some for men, some for women. I did try to think of everyone in this.

The wheel is scripted like my other pottery wheels. You click it and there is a menu with various speeds on it from insanely fast to slow. You choose the speed, click again and click stop to stop. Obviously. It also comes with the rug as pictured, it just seemed too small to not have a piece tying it together like that and then a pallet of sorts with pieces all ready and waiting. A nice little scene for your rp.

Right now at We <3 RP and at a 30% discount for the round.

Tormented and Chained Up

So today this months round for the Kinky Event opens up. You know me, I just can’t. help. myself.

Kink is something that I have a lot of fun creating for. Which if you have been around me long enough know oh so well. I’m always trying to come up with a bit of something different or a twist because things can end up looking the same or just being the same.

Today I’m releasing a newer version of something I made a few years back, the tortured slave post but this time it’s a bit wider. More of a ‘horse’ with bondage fun for two not just the tormented soul who gets chained to it like the first post.

It’s completely redone, with more chain points. More poses. More fun. And I really like the new rug beneath it. I’ve done it up in the wood tones for the Vilnai range, so you get 3 different options, default, medium and dark. I like all three but tend to favor what I call the base or default one. It’s a reddish sort of wood coloring that just looks good together when it’s all set out.

The horse has animations for the submissive/victim. She can be trussed up to stand over top of the very uncomfortable looking bar with her head up or down in a variety of animations. There is also two single bondage ‘horse’ sort of animations all with particle chains. After she has suffered enough all on her lonesome you can then join her. The dominant can either stand by idly or there are 4 animation sets for couples. Bound up to be spanked, or to please the dominant there’s ways to enjoy her predicament.

Out now for the Kinky Event. And is on display both there as well as at the Roawenwood home sim.
