============================

Each year a few friends of mine like to do this awesome thing.  A circle of giving. Each place usually has a holiday tree with gifts.

We all go to each others stores dropping off a little something for people to get.

This year I didn’t do a tree but I did do a cute lil winter scene.

I have 4 gifts out there last time I checked, and will probably add more.

There’s also gifts from Fallen Gods, On a Lark, The Looking Glass, and Artisan Fantasy.

Roawenwood Giving Circle

I haven’t picked it up yet so I’m reminding ya’ll that it’s there. I’m considering making a lil display for group type of things to have there always.

I have a spot for group gifts but its so out of the way most wouldn’t know it is there if they didn’t use the TP pads. So I guess we’ll see.

Depends on if I find a way to make something that I like lol

Have a good one and talk to you soon!!!!!!!!!

30L Sales, Gifts & Updates!

============================

LETTERS TO SANTA UPDATE!!!

============================

ALL letters have been initially answered… everyone should have received their gift if they sent one. There was A LOT to go through… around 140, so here I am trying to figure out which are the very bestest so they can win a prize.

I’ll be getting prizes and notifications out to the luckiest of those who put some effort into their letters. I am so thrilled with the responses, I’ve been having a lot of fun with it so THANK YOU!!! You guys all are awesome.

============================

Rye Bread Bowl with DipOnto the rest… well this weekend there is a 30L Saturday round for some deals. The shopping list is available in the NC I send to my group but I have two items marked down for 30L! My butter churn, and a snuggler.  The snuggler is adorable, it’s a reindeer.  I think it’s so cute but you know sometimes I can be easily amused.  If you want them then go to the landing, they are there in vendors that will stay on through tomorrow.

FREE gifts include a Firepit and a pullsled where you can walk with a bunch of presents.  Sure a lil late but it’s cute too.  BOTH items are free through tomorrow as well.

I did put a little something out there that is new… a rye bread dip thing. I don’t know how many of you have this but it is something that I have seen around me traditionally around the holidays. You scoop out the middle of a round rye bread loaf and put this dill dip inside of it.  The parts you scoop out are cut into cubes, placed around the outside.  Guests generally enjoy it at holiday parties, we have a buffet type thing we do each year for Christmas eve and generally that is one of the dishes on it.

I have it priced at 60L for now, don’t know if I’ll raise it or not but there it is!

Newness, gifts and lots of letters…. Thank you thank you and talk to you soon!

Whole lot goin on this week

The new store build was finally complete and with trepidition I finished up, moving the last final things like the greeter, and the contest boards down to the ground.  Drawing in a quavering breath trying to still the butterflies in my belly I sent out the first notices about the new look and re-opening of Roawenwood.

Whenever I redo the store I’m a little nervous, this time I put a lot more effort into the build and I was trying really hard to create more than just another store.  Something that was fun to wander, interesting to look at, as well as a decent place to shop.  Wanted ya’ll to be able to find things without going too crazy too.  I think I accomplished it and like for the most part how it turned out.

Lots and LOTS of new.  I released the Gunnhild Kirtle/Camisk set in my clothing lines.  The great thing about this set is that the top rw-gunnhild-kirtle-camisk-steelcan be worn alone as a sexy little camisk, rope belt wrapped around the hips or you can add one of three skirt options to have a softly flowing kirtle perfect for any northern bondsmaid.  It’s available in 6 colors, from steel, blood red, rose, moss, cornflower, and lilac.  I really liked how it turned out and have had some awesome feedback already from it.  Through the weekend the kirtle set will be 50% off on the new group discount board that is near the landing point!

Also released some distressed and worn slave furniture great for kennel or dungeon or wherever you want to have something with a bit more of a rough look.  Three pieces, a grooming/relaxing mat… a slave shower… and a grooming table.  The grooming table has two animations built into it, one where the girl brushes her hair while kneeling in tower in front of the mirror, the other is just a kneeling pose… role play out putting on your make up that is scattered across the top of the table.  The slave shower has a kneeling pose where the girl bathes beneath the water that comes down from the faucet.  Water turns on and off with touch, can either face the shower or face outwards.

sa-fora-grooming-picThe kennel mat is a little bit nicer even though it only weighs in at 5 prims.  Frayed rug with some beat up pillows there is 4 sets of animations.  The first is two girls, one kneeling in front of the other while her hair is being brushed and they sit talking.  The other three poses can be used singly or with a friend, they are all relaxing type poses so you have a place to curl up or kick back.

Now on top of the releases, the new store build and everything else there has been lots goin on at the store.  The lucky tribe stuff is sooooooo great!  I see lots having a blast with it.  I’ve also added a prize pyramid to the landing area.  Along with all of that I just added TWO Midnight Madness boards.  One with a set of silks that isn’t available in the store anywhere else, and one with a piece from the gardening section.  Ok so I’ve been feeling generous.  You guys ALL benefit from that!  The newbie gift for folks under 30 days has been put back out too.

What else….. hmmmmm……… *scratches her head*  oohh!!  Grid hunts!  hahaha the Gorean grid hunt is finishing up.  Tomorrow is the LAST day to get that freebie!  I may put the camisk up with the clothing but if you hurry you can get it for free.

The SL Discovery hunt will be going until the end of June, AND on the 25th another hunt starts!  Through the Looking Glass Grid Hunt starts and guess what… mhmmmm I’m in it so a new freebie!  Just have to find the little mirror with the cheshire cat peeking out on the glass.

I think that’s about it for now.   I’ll have more stuff soon.

Freebie lovin and an upgrade!

It’s the weekend!! And with that lovely piece of news there’s been a lot going on at the store!  The Gorean Grid Wide Hunt kicks off today and my lil heart with a dagger through it isn’t that hard to find.  It’s near the landing point just take a peek up and you should see it without too many problems.  It has a few things in there, I couldn’t decide what to place… along with the fact that I was -trying- to have a little bit of everything so most can find a use for it.

A sexy little camisk is one of the included freebies in there which won’t be put out for sale till after the hunt is over with… can get a free copy now if you like and feel like dropping by.

The Lucky Tribe event through the Lucky Chair Company is supposed to be kicking off today around noon SL.  They’re being secretive about it but it sounds like it could be a lot of fun.  You play games and go round the grid to participating stores to earn kudos points.  As you earn points you can redeem them for prizes at stores that are in the event.  Both of the lucky chairs placed out at my store can earn kudos points.  A twist on the grid wide hunt idea with some added fun and challenges! Lucky Tribe teaser post.

I added a new little chore… a harvest bag.  Nothing too awful major really but a little accessory that you can use for role play or whatever.

Dance Pit Upgrade Offer: When I created the Desert Opulence Dance Pit I included a texture change option.  The script that was used for it worked alright but on a reset could end up wiping the thing clean so you couldn’t do  the texture change anymore.  This really isn’t a good thing… you are paying for that functionality and it shouldn’t get broken that easily.  I have since had the script redone and now it won’t.  Safe from resets and safe from lil LL or SL snafus unless they change something.

In this vein I am offering a FREE upgrade to the latest version of the dance pit.  Anyone that has this dance pit is welcome to send it in a folder along with a notecard with the name of the person to send the upgraded dance pit to and I’ll replace it free of charge.  Rename the folder to something like Dance Pit Upgrade Request.

Have a great weekend!

An apple a day….

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.

~Martin Luther

Last evening I planted my apple trees… well, sort of.  I have always loved trees and whenever I build my private home or have some land to play with one thing that tends to be rather integral is the landscaping.  I’m very particular, I don’t like flat and I don’t like cartoony unless I’m in a specific mood.  Generally I like having different kinds of ‘areas’ or spots to recline or spend time in whether alone or with the few friends that I have.  Tonight I released a set of apple or larma, if you’re so inclined, trees for landscaping and one that is a ‘chore’ I suppose.  A couple 1 prim sculptured apple trees that are copy/modify/no transfer so you can fill up your space and not look too crappy… building an orchard.  Then a 14 prim fuller tree which honestly… looks really good in my opinion for having so few prims.  It’s modify/transfer so you can make it bigger or smaller even.

Apple/Larma Picking Chore Set

Apple/Larma Picking Chore Set

The chore tree is a little smaller… 23 prims, it has a bushel set atop some crates at the base.  One thing that makes this apple/larma picking chore a little different than most that I have seen is that it has a few more options.  Along with the picking animation I embedded three lounging animations where you can sit on the crates kicked back beneath the tree.  So not only does it function as a work area… it also has the delightful option of being a lazy day relaxing area where you can sit.  I have been considering embedding another set of sits so more than one person can sit at it but I haven’t decided or gotten that far yet.  It can be purchased through Xstreet or at my store.  I also added a lil wheelbarrow with some sacks and a bushel of apples that you can pick up just for decor.  I really like it, and I hope ya’ll do too.

Other updates?  Ohhh… more grid hunts.  I have the Gorean Grid Hunt starting this weekend, and I have the Through the Looking Glass hunt on the 25th.  To be honest… *whispers real low*  I don’t have anything made for either of them yet.   *coughs and raises her voice again* The idea that I had for the TTLG hunt someone else is doing and I don’t want to be too similiar, so I’m a little unsure what to do for that one anyhow… but that one is further off, so I don’t feel that much pressure.  The Gorean hunt I’m sure I can whip something together.  I’d like to have something unique and not just something from my store in it but I might toss a few things in there.

I’m also involved in an event with the people who do the Lucky Chair stuff.  Shep has something new coming out and I’ve been selected to be in the first wave of testing for it.  Very cool, but that means I need to come up with a prize for that by friday too!  No rest for the wicked… or so I hear and damn it seems like it’s true enough for me.

So tons of freebies and things coming out this month for ya’ll who are interested between the three different hunts and such.

I finished the Kirtle/Camisk set too…. buuuuuuuuut I’m being naughty and holding onto that release for a wee bit while I work on the new store build!  I know, I’m terrible but I want a few new things for the opening, and yanno something… I fought with the textures for this outfit so badly that I am not in a huge rush at the moment.  I have all the ads and pics done, the outfit…. so that will be coming out SOON!

Until I get a bit of time to write again, I gotta get back to work!!  Be safe and have a lovely week.
