The 5th Annual Home & Garden Expo

HOME EXPO 2012 SIGN TEXTURE

HOME EXPO 2012

The 5th Annual Home & Garden Expo benefiting Relay For Life of Second Life, part of a fundraising campaign for the American Cancer Society, has less than 12 hours left. It close at tonight 10pm SLT, May 28th and covers 14 Sims with all kinds of amazing home and garden & breedables wonderfulness. That wonderfulness will include everything from prefabs and furniture to flowers and swimming pools not to mention living, breathing, breeding creatures from a mix of well-known and some not so well-known creators. There is actually a really impressive list of 1s and second level event sponsors this year, and I would strongly encourage you to make sure you visit before the opportunity is up. You can find a list those sponsors here: http://slhomeandgardenexpo.wordpress.com/expo-sponsors/.

One of this years biggest sponsors has become near and dear to my heart as it is one of my most recent SL addictions, one which I never thought I would succumb, Breedables! Yes, it is true, I am just starting to raise KittyCatS. Breedables. You have probably noticed several of my cats in recent pictures and those sprinkled through this article, and they aren’t the only breedables there this year. There is so much to see I will barely even be able to touch on any of this, but here goes. So don’t waste time reading all the details of the article. Glance over the pictures and then run for the Expo before it is too late. Check out the official website, http://slhomeandgardenexpo.wordpress.com, for all the details of maps and TP points.

All the Exhibitors is selling two original exclusive-to-the-Home-Expo items, the sales of which are earmarked for Relay For Life.  These items are new to the grid, making their first appearance in the SL market at the Expo.  The price of these items are set by the designers and every penny will go to RFL.  After the Expo ends, creators are free to continue selling the items in their main stores, if they so choose. Some of the creators are also participating in the event Hunt. The items will be hidden around the 13 sims at each participating exhibitors display. This is NOT a free hunt – Hunters pay a fee for each hidden object that is donated to RFL.  For more info, those interested in hunting can visit the Expo Hunt  info page. There is also the RAFFLE FOR RELAY! you can still get in on. Lots of awesome prizes, including some valued at more than 10k each!  Daily & Grand Finale Drawings. No need to be present to win Expo Fair Entertainment (19,97,23).

To My Friend, Khloe


My Velveteen Rabbit

The Velveteen Rabbit is one of my favorite stories. I think of it many times a year but always at this time of the year, because of the association of bunnies with Easter. My love for this story is one that I share with my friend, Khloe. So I decided to make this blog post dedicated to her, because of my desire to do something for her this Easter that both represented this story we both so love and gain strength and inspiration from and that represented how much she means to me.

 For Khloe 1

For those of you who don’t know the story of the Velveteen Rabbit, you can find the full story here: http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/williams/rabbit/rabbit.html. It is known as the story of how a toy becomes real. Now if you don’t know the story the smothering with love might not make that much sense and you might not understand how that is part of the journey to becoming real. It is the story of a stuffed rabbit that becomes the favorite toy of a sick little boy, who eventually is loved so much he is worn and so much he becomes a real bunny.

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.
“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”

For Khloe 2

So off I set, on a journey to find an outfit, some poses, a bunny which I could I could smother with love and maybe someday help become real, and a place to take pictures of it all. Khloe wasn’t available for dressing up like a bunny, but fortunately just in the nick of time Olaenka Chesnokov, creator of oOo Studio, released this bunny pose set, complete with accompanying bunnies that I could use. Once I had the poses and the bunnies the FreebieFriday hunt gift (a skirt, bodysuit, shoes, glasses, belt and bunny ears) from VERSHE landed in my lap. I was ecstatic and decided to use it when, Vershel made the decision to extend the freebie hunt for this outfit through Sunday. That way anyone seeing the pictures would still be able to get the free item. I used everything in the outfit except the adorable shoes. I was just in a barefoot kind of mood and wanted to show off my new Gaeline bare feet. I also wanted to remind folks that in addition to this freebie outfit from VERSHE (The item will be hidden in a small eggs somewhere around the store and for group members only.), group members at VERSHE would also be getting my Spring Eyeshadow from my blog on LpD. By the time this article is published there will be an extra egg added to the hunt with that free gift will be set out at VERSHE.

For Khloe 3

So the only thing remaining for this endeavor was a place to take some spring inspired pictures. After TPing around the grid to several promising but not quite right locations, I tried out one that I found through Flickr, Frog’s Garden. I discovered Frog’s Garden (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bonaire52/35/56/23) because of this picture, http://www.flickr.com/photos/liqueur/6892608244, posted on flickr by Liqueur Felix. When I TPed in to check it out, it was the perfect spot. Exactly what I had in mind. Small and quaint and beautifully decorated. A store in the most unobtrusive way. It inspired be so much to create my own similar space that purchases are sure to ensue in the future, but at the time I was all about the picture taking. I am pleased with how they turned out and there are a few more I posted in my Flickr stream. I had a blast playing with the windlight options and various presets and combinations of my own. I strongly encourage you to go get some pics of your own and either before or after drop by VERSHE to pick up your freebies and the last ever Fashionably Late to get your own set of bunny poses.

For Khloe 4

Happy Easter Everyone! Here’s hoping that this year you are loved so much you are worn to the point of becoming real.

And Happy Easter, Khloe.

Keep Calm and Keep Shopping


DON’T Step Away from those adorable new items…

keep calm and keep shopping

Keep Calm and Keep Shopping May 14th to May 28th

The Keep Calm and Keep Shopping event is a two week event featuring some of the most fantastic stores in Second Life! They’ll have a wide range of stores including furniture, apparel, animations, houses etc. All participating stores will have one (or more) brand new, exclusive, never to be sold again item(s) placed in their stores. You know what that means … no extra laggy event locations. The items will be spread out all over and you will be able to experience the stores in their entirety not just a sample of their wares.

This not a discount event, items will be full price. It’s also not a charity event, all the money will go straight to the designers. It’s just an event with some amazing creations.

The idea behind this is exposure and exclusive items, because the creators of the event feel we need more events that are aimed purely at Second Life designers. The money they earn goes towards creating new and amazing items for us (the consumers of SL), paying land rent/ tier, and for some even helps cover their real life bills. It’s time to say thank you to all the fabulous creators that make Second Life the way it is today, they don’t get thanked enough!

The event runs from May 14th until May 28th. All participating stores will be listed on the blog along with their slurls. There’s an inworld group for shoppers and a separate one for designers and bloggers! For more info, rules, links to applications and all other information please check the website! http://keepcalmandkeepshopping.blogspot.co.uk/. Bloggers and Designers get your applications in NOW! And everyone else get ready for some amazing, once in a Second Life opportunities.

Thank you for reading and we now return you to your regularly scheduled reading and shopping tasks.

‘My Attic” Is Open To The Public


You are all invited to ‘My Attic”, an event hosted by The Deck sim, and its owner, Sasy Scarborough. It starts today March 21st and ends on March 31st. The theme this session is “Summer Abroad 1955-1960” and all items are 95L for the duration of the event, and will then go to regular store prices afterwards. I personally grabbed almost everything there.

From left to right: That’s me in the beehive and Maitreya Jackie O glasses on the left, next to me is Whimsy Winx (creator of W.Winx Home & Garden), then Sasy Scarborough (blogger extraordinaire and sim proprietor / promoter), then Helyanwe Vindaloo (creator of all kinds of amazing things at .ploom.), then Ashia Tomsen (amazing skin creator of Idiosyncrasy), and last but not least the solo man in the group, Kavar Cleanslate (Exile creator) who has been making some incredible hairs, its no wonder he has a “Hair”em of women around him. Everyone here but me adds something of value to the sale.

Several of us are sporting items from the event as well. Sasy has on the dress by Maitreya and we both have on the glasses, and the the exile hair (although not the hair I have on in the group pic), I have on the Idiosyncrasy skin as well, Hely has on the hair from .ploom. and the dress from DKNY (the dress comes with a matching sun hat and basket, too). Now just to be clear. This is not my attic, that is just the name of the event, “My Attic”.
