Yay!! Fixed!!

I had to fix my blog, I couldn’t get into the admin area so I wasn’t able to do updates on it like I wanted to.

Egads what a pain in the backside.  Soooooo much to say, and soooooooo much has happened!

I’ve been blogged about a couple times this week too!  Yanno, whenever that happens I always feel really teeny tiny.  Silks of Second Life blogged about my harvest bag chore attachment.  Thank you so much!  I appreciate the feedback.

I was told about a german blog that highlighted the hunt gift that I made for the SL Discovery hunt.

And then I found quite by accident by clicking through profiles another blog that highlighted a couple things from my place too.  Bound by Silk blog has a wee little post about the kirtle I just released and the camisk I made for the Gorean hunt that ends tomorrow.  Looks like a new blog, I wish the author the best of luck!!

As far as updates!  Woot!! The new store is complete and opened up!!  Will write a new post just for that in a lil bit.

I’m slackin!!

I haven’t sat down to write anything for a lil bit.  The horror… the tragedy of it all.  *heaves an overly dramatic sigh.*

Ok, I’m done.

Anyhow… I’ve been doing a -whole- lot behind the scenes that you may not have seen yet.  The new store location is finally finally getting closer to being done, I’m moving product and getting it all set up.  It’s a bit different than my previous build.  Different buildings and feel.  I have put a lot more work into the way it looks, hopefully it won’t be too difficult to navigate.  Things are set up to be categorized somewhat… clothing in one area, furniture type stuff in another, work related and so on.  Landscaping, trees and all of that intermixed with the rest in a pleasing atmosphere so you can almost feel like you strolling through someplace and not just a store.

Thank you so much for all the positive feedback I’ve been getting on the hunt items!!  I keep getting nice little notes from people that appreciate the freebies in the grid hunts I have been a part of.  I’m very glad that everyone is enjoying the offerings.

I have a whole lot coming up.  With the opening of the new store build I’m going to have a special 50% board for groupies with items from around the store knocked down to 50% off!!  I tossed around the idea of closing the open enrollment aspect of the group but decided against it.  It’s hard enough trying to manage groups, and if you want to take advantage of a sale you should be able to.  It’s like in real life, yanno all of those stupid cards you need to have for different grocery stores, drug stores, etc… if you don’t have the card you are S.O.L. on their sale.  Well I didn’t wanna do that to everyone so I’m leaving it open enrollment.  Take advantage of my sales when they come up.

New outfit coming out!  New furniture!  New stuff for your kennels!  New chores!  New Store!  Coming soon!!

Whew!  I need a vacation.  lol

Byeeeeeeeeeeeee *winks*

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.

New and exciting stuff

It’s been awhile since I wrote but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been putting things out.  One of the things about me is I am almost constantly putting out new items.  I end up putzing around in my workshop or unable to sleep… something new will come around and out of it.  The past bit after releasing the Flutterbee silks I’ve added a large garden with 5 different spots for workers, a sawing wood chore, and a potters set.

The potters set is rather nice I think.  It has a potters bench that’s a little different than the normal potters wheel, also there’s the kiln which I rather like… a few shelves and some accessories.  It can be bought in part or in whole at my store.

I have plans to be putting out some new clothes of course, and lots of things but I am swamped swamped swamped with plans lately.  I have three hunts coming up, and I have to redo the store.  In between I make little things or work on bigger things but it is these few things that I really need to crack down on and get done.  I am convinced that the creative process becomes a big old stumbling block when deadlines and expectations come up.

I am convinced because yanno… I have -no- idea what to make for these hunts.  *laughs*  I sincerely want to place something in for each of them that makes them worthwhile and something that ya’ll would want to have.  I definately want to make something that is more than just some ugly stinkin freebie…. sooooo now what.

Ahhhh I’ll think of something.  Anyhow…. keep checkin back, and even if you don’t see something here on the blog, there’s probably a really good bet that there is something new in the store anyhow.  Have a great weekend!

Weekend Wonderings

I hope everyone is doing well.   Been so sick this past week so not a whole lot is getting done but that doesn’t mean I’m not thinking about it.

This coming week is going to be a real busy one for me so hopefully I can get some updates done or something new in the store.  I tend to put out new things constantly without updating the blog for every little thing.

I’m trying to come up with a new look for my place.  I like the buildings I’m using but the layout is bothering me some.  And I think I’m sick of the snow on the sim.  I think it’s time to bring back some color.  Nice and green, and bring back some warm weather feelings!  I have so much snow in real life I don’t think I want it for extra time in my second life too.
