After The Show…

 

To me, punk rock is the freedom to create, freedom to be successful, freedom to not be successful, freedom to be who you are. It’s freedom. – Patti Smith

Magical Universe..

“When the reason for a thing’s being illuminated, it doesn’t hold the same mystery it does when it is unknown, which is both a wonderful and a horrible revelation. It’s wonderful because it’s like peeking into the universe and understanding a tiny bit of its complexity. It’s also horrible because a little bit of magic is removed from the world with each discovery.” ― Bradley Somer, Fishbowl

The Joy of Gardening – Designer Showcase: Apple Fall

A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. A garden is a grand teacher. – Unknown

 

Currently Apple Fall is having an amazing sale inworld; where items are marked to 25, 50 or 75L only. Please note that giftcards are not included for the sale; those are still full price. Also the sale is only inworld and not on Marketplace.  The sale started on Monday July 17, 2017  and will be going until Friday July 21, 2017. There are so many amazing deals at the sale; that everyone should take a moment and check out. I’ve also personally found 15 items in the mainstore that were marked down to 0L. Free everyone!, of those items; a few were plants and one was the Apple Fall – New York Studio Apartment. The Studio Apartment has a menu where you can change the texture of the walls & floor to 4 different themes, reflecting New York. It’s an amazing steal; and there are many more free items hidden around.

 

Today I bring you a tutorial of how to create your own personal planters using items that I’ve gotten at the Apple Fall Sale. Below you’ll find my video tutorial/vlog on how to unlink items and relink with other items to create your own planter. The possibilities are endless of what you can create with items that are modifiable and can be unlinked.

I hope that you enjoyed the tutorial/vlog and that I helped to show what is possible once you know what to do.

Monday Meme: Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge!

I’ve mostly been out of the blogging loop and have decided to stay that way for the most part. But as always I am slightly pulled back in by; The Mother of Bloggers, Queen of Photography! Yes this is my personal name for her and I will continue to use it but who else could I be speaking about other than Strawberry Singh!

So she has decided to being Monday Meme’s once again and I couldn’t be happier, as it’s something that I have always enjoyed doing. Also I must note it’s something that can make me blog at least once a week again which isn’t too much for me. Anyways onto this week’s Meme!

Meme instructions: Share an image of your Second Life avatar smiling for a yearbook photo. Don’t forget to share the link to your post in the comments and add your pictures to the new Second Life Yearbook flickr group, you can also share them in the Blog Memes flickr group if you like.

 

Second Life Yearbook Challenge 2015!

I know, I am not smiling but there is a reason for that. I have the AnyPose Expression Hud, which I find quite useful for pictures. There is one thing, I HATE the smiles.. looks like I am going to break into someone’s home and murder them as they sleep…or as if I was giving too many ‘happy’ pills to try to stabilize my mood. So then I went looking at the Loud Mouth which also had me left more than a bit disappointed. So my theme slowly began to take form, I’m angry; this should be so fucking simple! And there I got it, channel my anger into this and make a future mug shot picture because truth be told, I hated smiling for school pictures and was made not once but twice to retake pictures by my mother! So I just used my [Whatever] Teeth 2.0 Pierced that I always wear but with the ‘Hooked’ Mesh Alpha Included! So there you have it, perhaps a bit outside of the box but this is me that we are talking about after all.

 

 

Practice Makes Perfect!

I know that I haven’t really been blogging as of late; lack of inspiration and the realization that it is now indeed summer; meaning my time is split in half between RL and SL. But I think that I might have finally gotten my groove back by playing around with pictures once again. I was finally able to do a few things that I had been wanting to do for a while now; Making water drops and figuring out skin and eyeshadow. To many it might not see like that big of a deal but to a beginner like me it means to the world to have finally figured these little things out.

 

Meh...

Falling Apart

 

 

Falling Apart

“I knew that somewhere God was laughing. He had taken the other half of my heart, the one person who knew me better than I knew myself, and He had done what nothing else could do. By bringing us together, He had set into motion the one thing that could tear us apart.” – Jodi Picoult, Harvesting the Heart

When Memories Overwhelm You…..

I’ve become a bit lack with my Sunday posting habits so I thought that I would try to pick up it once again. A while back when my blog was still on blogger, I declared that Sundays would be Pose Day. A day where I would showcase a pose or two that I really like. Now back near the beginning of May I went to the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and came across some wonderful poses by . Infiniti . called ‘Forgotten Memories’. The maker of this wonderful pose and many others is Brandi Monroe who has her own blog that I love to read quite a bit. So here is what I created with this wonderful pose and I hope that you all enjoy!

Flaming Pear: Flood Photoshop Plugin Part 2 & More Highlights of The Week

Alright since I’ve discovered the Flood Plug-In from Flaming Pear due to the every wonderful Strawberry Singh; I’ve been having quite a bit of fun with it.  Perhaps a bit too much fun but my mind is thinking of all these different ways that it can be used while I debate getting the full version once this trial runs out. It’s almost day 3 of my 14 day trial and I can honestly say that I have fallen in love. This is the very first plug-in I have tried and now I want.. no I crave so much more. If someone can point a novice such as myself in the right direction of some wonderful plug-ins; I would be ever so grateful.

The first picture I’m going to post is a bit NSFW but it is a pose called; Pressure that I found at Double Take this evening while on my FLF (Fifty Linden Fridays) run through. It was too good of a deal to pass up!  I grabbed it and my husband and flew a bit below our skybox above the land beginning to play around with windlights while changing. (Also if anyone can point me in the direction of a few more windlights I would be ever so grateful as well! I’ll bake you cookies!!!) I have to admit that the husband is becoming more used to this me taking off when inspiration begins to take over me. Hope you like the picture and the few others that I have created over the last 72 hours or so.

 

**Wanted To Note: The first two pictures were taken just in the air above my land while the last one was taken at a place that I stumbled upon due to Luna Jubilee due to her being the cover model for Fusion Magazine this month after the article about her there was one about a very nice sim that I hadn’t heard of before and I was quite impressed. If you have a chance stop by *Frisland*, You can join a group that allows you to rez so that you may take photographs but in order to do so you need to contact one of the owners of the sim. I will be doing such in a bit, it was one of the many things on my to do list but as always I get a bit sidetracked during the best of times.
