Summer Finally!

blog_001

I’ve started the summer on a lazy streak! I confess I’ve really enjoyed just hanging out in SL and not working hard. I was playing with windlights and visiting one of my all time favorite sims, Salt Water, when I snapped this pic. Here’s a taxi: Salt Water. I really love how this windlight makes the beach look washed in sunlight while still picking up some very bright colors. It’s one of Torley’s windlights, Big Sun – Good for Marriage.

I have managed to remake an old favorite, the Inlaid series. It’s in mesh now and mod and comes with a HUD that allows switching between gold or silver and the three different inlaid colors.

I also have made two new ring sets, both in mesh and come with HUDs that allow switching between gold and silver with some options for gems.

Party!

Party 1

Yay! It’s Saturday and time to party. I added a short lacy flexi skirt to one of my fave dresses from Maitreya and a wonderfully sexy pair of shoes from Reign that I picked up for FLF.

I also worked on a necklace set to go with the Pink! Color Change set I released a couple weeks ago. I’ve had a couple requests for a matching necklace. It will be a Blushed VIP group gift, so stay tuned for that release.

I’m also including a little tutorial on adapting a flexi skirt to wear with your favorite mesh mini dress. If you have a cute flexi skirt from another outfit that has a very light texture you can try this yourself.

Party 2

First step is to match the color tone using the build tools. Do your best to match to the darkest color in the dress you are going to pair the skirt with. Each picture has instructions. You may need to click on the individual pictures to make them large enough to read the instructions.

Woe is Me!

Quick post today. Sinus infections are no fun! I crawled out of bed and took a quick snap or two of my “sick bed”.

In the Garden

in the garden swingingIt’s Saturday and I’m just being lazy after a very long week in the art classroom. There’s just something about my SL garden that puts me at peace making all seem right with the world. One of my favorite places to hang out on is my White Bramley Porch Swing from What Next. Of course you can see in the pic that it is no longer white. I made a swing support for it and “painted” the swing to match the dark wood. One of the nice things about nearly all of the What Next products is the ability to mod the items to fit your decor.

I ran home after work yesterday and grabbed the new top from Blueberry. I love how it has a built in necklace, which works so well with my latest jewelry release, Pink! Color Change. And, the Ingenue FLF shoes worked perfectly to complete the look.

Sneak Peek – Pink! Color Change

I’ve been reworking my old Pink! set. I’ve made it color change so that now instead of just pink you can choose from white/black, red, teal, blue, purple, orange, and of course the original pink. This new set will be sized and positioned for both Maitreya and Slink hands and feet. The old set came out before we had materials available, so the new set sparkles and shines with the addition of materials textures. And what I’m most excited about is the manicure set I made to go with this new jewelry. The manicure has attachable nail jewels.

The set will come in three packages: 1. Manicure, 2. Earrings, Rings, Bracelets, 3. Anklets and Toerings. You will be able to choose between gold or silver or buy all in one fatpack at a significant savings.

Feeling Blocked

This weekend finds me in a funk. I went exploring last night hoping to see something that would make me want to run back to my studio and create something beautiful, but it didn’t happen. The surroundings were lovely and serene and I enjoyed it very much but I’m still feeling blocked. Maybe I’m just too tired to tackle something before my summer vacation gets here.

Where's my muse

On a better note, I am in love with my new skirt from Blueberry. I paired it with a bodysuit from Snatch that made the perfect go-out-and-party outfit.

Spring Dawns

This long cold winter is breaking as the spring sun plays a light show on my terrace. The sound of water gently flowing over stones and into the pond sings a sweet melody as I sit here and contemplate the busy season to come. Summer has always been a time of work for me. Already images of new jewelry and lingerie are beginning to dance through my dreams both at night and during the day. I am eager to turn from the responsibilities of my first life and throw myself fully into the summer of creation that is nearly here.
