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