Changes

I’ve just packed up my garden to move to a smaller and cheaper plot. Here’s one for posterity. I’ll post the SLURL to the new place when I’m set up.

Unplugged rather than upgraded

Unplugged

Sometimes taking pictures doesn’t go quite to plan. I got the original of this one to final edit after a couple of hours’ work to realise I missed an error that no editing magic could fix.

Back to the drawing board.

I then upgraded to the new version of Firestorm and had the black screen of death, the pink screen of death and some thinking time to read the jira entries while downloading 180 megabytes of updated graphics drivers.

Then I repeated the process as nothing worked and followed different recommendation for my laptop and downloaded another 180 megabytes of drivers. I have SL but now my images are too soft in focus (depth of field is off to no avail) and the new video drivers have made my screen blurry in places on the laptop.

I’ll try again another day when I have time. I can see an upside in that I somehow have shadows now and there’s a bazillion more windlight settings to play with!

Strawberry’s seven SL facts meme

Seven SL facts

I can’t recall ever participating in a meme but Strawberry Singh’s intriguing seven facts meme got me pondering about things you may not know about me. I hope you can share your seven things as well and post a link here or on Berry’s blog.

1 I am obsessed about not getting involved in SL drama. My RL has enough bumps in the road and I am militant about my sense of fun and wonder being disturbed.

2 If designers give me goodies to blog, I usually go to their shops and buy something else to spread the good karma.

3 I have more than 600 poses in inventory. I compiled the first 400 manually in an old and reliable hud but I’m too lazy to scroll through it; I usually go and buy more at the time I need them.

4 If I take a picture in someone’s sim, I always hunt down the tip jar and leave some lindens. I didn’t know owners could see who gave tips until someone sent me a thank you note — if avatars could blush, mine would have turned a bright shade of red.

5 12,000 is the point at which I fret irrationally about my inventory count. The total is about 12,600 at the moment so some items will have to go or I’ll keep thinking about them.

6 Even if I don’t have land, I still search for and buy houses. Much of my inventory consists of houses I can’t bear to delete as they hold memories of placing and decorating them. However, I live in a basic house with no furniture as all my allowance is used on the garden.

7 I haven’t been involved with anyone for about four years since a relaxed and affectionate thing with a man from America. It ended awfully after he accused me of contacting his RL wife (so many things are wrong with that sentence I can’t even begin). I’m not looking but maybe a nice man in a friendly timezone will emerge from an orange cloud and rez in front of me one day.

Bonus fact
My favourite creation in SL is the Happy Mood bunnies (but I guess that’s no secret). I bought all the variations in size and colour.

Flow

I focused on the scenery in my last post and didn’t get to show off this dreamy outfit. I adore the drape of the pants and how the jacket sleeves are longer than usual for a smart but relaxed weekend feel.

The picture is taken in a corner of my garden. You’re more than welcome to visit and take pictures.

my everydaydream*

I’m not online as much as I’d like and I wanted to find a way to share my pixel land and photo sets. So, I am opening up my sky platform if you’d like to visit and take photos.

This is not a cohesive or restrained space; it’s some old and new favourite things with some transitions so it’s hopefully not a totally messy brain dump. Most of the areas are new and unphotographed but I re-created a few of my favourite sets like my little ode to Happy Mood. Things will change as I find new goodies to rez but the loose theme at the moment is play.

You should be able to rez props and poses if you join and activate the everydaydream group.

I hope you enjoy.

Valentine’s Day

I saw a set of Adorkable heart poses on the marketplace last Christmas and have been waiting for an opportunity to use one. Good thing I only had to wait until February, and the trees kind of shaped themselves into a heart without my thinking about it.

The Boho Culture Fair – 3

We can be happy


We’re in the last days of the Boho Culture Fair so go and visit before it closes on 31 October.

Today’s look is from some blogger copies and a few pieces I bought at the fair. Thanks so much to Crisshoney Violet and Fiorella Clarity for pulling together so many established and rising star designers and allowing me to be involved.

Flowers for Neve

I wanted to make a picture for the lovely Nevery Lorakeet of Les Petits Details. She’s been generous of spirit, full of patience when I’ve accidentally deleted myself from her blogger group and has been an all-round kind and lovely person. Oh, and she makes rockin’ biker-cum-ballerina outfits, too. I’m honoured to call her a friend.

High tea (with pirate bunnies)

High tea (with pirate bunnies)

My original idea for a tea party with HPMD’s animals got a bit out of hand — I never imagined shopping for SL cakes and drinks could be so much fun!

Thank you to Rudh for being so patient while I moved animals around, contemplated whether a horse would fit in the shot and generally stuffed about with windlight settings.

Oh, if you’re a fairly new mesh convert like me, head over to coldLogic for some great basics, smart things and mix’n’match outfits. I’m not affiliated but just a person who wished such a shop existed IRL because the argyle patterns are to drool over and the range’s colour schemes are so well thought out.

Pirate wildlife yarrrr!

Just a quick one to say there are two gacha machines set up at Happy Mood at only 30 and 50 lindens each. Rudhmellowen Laguna told me about the pirate bunny; I immediately gave up trying to get into the Hair Fair and TPd to HappyMood to buy some new animals including a bat and a pirate squirrel.

Thanks, Rudh, for telling me!
