Stay Focused! (25Lds GG’s).

I’m trying my hardest to remain focused on the job in hand, landscaping our sim, but damn I’m so easily distracted esp when it’s a backdrop BUT don’t stop reading because there is a lot more than the backdrop/photo room I’m showing you in the Kraftwork shop.

How zingy is that yellow!

Just another view, because this is a backdrop rather than a room it means the 4th wall is missing so you get more camming space.  You also get a hud with 3 shades in it and the third is a superb dark blue.  Obviously not something everyone needs for their SLing but there are now a lot of, decor only, gifts at the LM for the Kraftwork shop inc this cutie.

It’s a little brum brum loaded with cacti and succulents.  A decor item only, I will say that at I think 14 prims maybe a bit primmy but you can’t deny it’s cuteness.

As I’ve said there is actually a few decor items, I remember showing you the concrete picnic table and chair set but since then there is a lot more set out for group members and I’m pretty sure than for your 25Lds joining fee you will find quite a few things for your home and garden.

PS There is also another skybox as a GG which is deffo a livable in one or maybe better as a shop.

SIMply Fantastic.(Freebies).

I’m so easily distracted, I’m supposed to be landscaping our sim but yet again I got sidetracked by this brilliant gift from Little Branch.

I thought it was a Silver Birch, I have one of those in my RL garden and it has a special place in my heart but this one is called a “Golden Birch” as you can see it has that silvery bark that all Silver Birches have.  What you can’t see is this tree has a lovely delicate movement to it plus it’s SEASONAL! and I’ve only just recently did a post where I said if you can afford it buy your landscaping that is seasonal.  It’s a FREE group gift and the board it and the group invite are on is right next to the LM.

This is a really big tree which does show in the prims, I do believe it’s 12prims, you wouldn’t want to make it any bigger but if you shrink it down you obviously reduce the prims.  Even shrunk down to the 5prim mark you will be left with a tree which was still a decent size.  For me, since I’m after sim stuffers, ie extremely low prims I would only use this as a feature tree-dotted around, however, if you have only a small plot with just the space for a handful of plants this is perfect.

Check out this close up to see why.

You also get a couple of patches of grass and a shaped piece of land, I have used one of the patches of grass which is 4 prims for just that small plot but it’s so dense and really looks like real grass.

PPP=P*ss Poor Planning!(New Mina & a Dollarbie).

To save your sanity I will leave all my insane rambling till after I’ve shown you the goodies.

This is a new hair from who else?  Mina’s of course.  As you can see with “Maddie” she’s kept the double hud colour option that is a new look to this and another recent hair, just scroll back a couple of post ago to see that one.

I wasn’t going to use these pictures at first as they were just a test “ooo let’s see how they look” set of snaps but when I relooked at them I rather like the simplicity.  Anyhow this hair, if you click the options tab, also comes with 2 ways of wearing the fringe/bangs.  TBH I really don’t like how it looks without the softening effect of the fringe but that’s totally my preference and not the design.  As I’ve said you get the 2 huds, one for left and one for right and each comes in the colour pack you chose.  Love those big fat bunches and if you look closely you can see that she’s even used the hair texturing to cover up where a tie would have been used in RL to create this effect.

This new hair is only out at Kustom 9 so don’t even bother trying to get in there esp as it’s only just opened so it’s gonna be heaving!  I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog because you can see whats up for sale at this event and as always you can use the Mina Mainshop to go check the demo out in lag-free heaven.

PS.  I don’t bang on about it enough but the Group Membership for Mina’s in only 200Lds and she’s recently added a new hair to the room that has all of the shop quality hairs in it.

The dress is the dollarbie and there is a reason the hem is slightly cropped in the picture and I bet you can guess why?  Yup no SLink fit but you do get a fit for SLink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya & Isis and although I could find a nice fit it wasn’t a perfect fit.  Again you may have the mesh bod that does fit or of course you don’t even use one and have an alpha in your invent which will work.  The sleeves are attached as well which is a lovely touch but that might make a struggle if you do go for your own Alpha.

You might want to rush as obviously this is a lovely Valentines pressie off Spirit but it is only on the MP(Marketplace) and it might be pulled soon as Valentines is well and truly over.

You can skip all of this part as it’s just boring waffling…I’m good at that.

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day and remember even if you’re on your own there is no reason why you shouldn’t make sure you have a treat to spoil yourself or in my case our cat because we remembered it was his RL BD on Valentines lol. So me and my OH probably spent more on him than each other plus we spring cleaned the house so let’s face it Valentines for a lot of people is overrated lol.

I’ve also been MIA because it was also my RL BD(say that so it rhymes) and I’ve had a lovely time which has only been slightly marred by Windows desperately trying to force me to do a window 10 update even changing my computers setting to allow it!  I won and Windows lost, this round at least lol but if you don’t want the windows update then check they haven’t changed your settings.

I’m also trying to sort out sim out, I should have maybe started next week rather than this as we stripped it all back and I started to rezz away but then had to stop as RL was fun, fun and more fun but now I need to get sorted and get all those bald sim patches filled, get my new studio sorted and make my mind up what house I’m finally going to live in for the next several months which I have to say is much more fun in SL than RL lol.

It’s VD Day. (Mention of freebies ‘n’ cheapies).

OK going to try my hardest to make this a short post, but no promises.

A little lingerie set from Dirty Princess, free GG and super sexy panties and bra set but a rotten fit for my SLink body which is why this is a long shot because I could not take a close up without all my SLink flesh breaking through. I promise you I’m not boob flashing, the outfit has sexy sheer lazy panels which is why I look like I have very pink boobies. So not sure what body it’s meant to fit, prob a Maitreya but it cost nothing to try it for yourself.

The shoes are also freebies from the SL frees and offers group but you pick these up at the Legendaire shop entrance.  There are other paid for GG’s as well as some excellent discounts and scattered around are heart-shaped boxes for only 10Lds each.

Then I treated myself to these from one of the stands just outside of the Legendaire shop.

I’m not usually a big fan of these thick soles shoes but they have their uses and I thought these with that bow had a retro vibe to them plus with the 10 colour hud they’re going to be a handy pair of go-to shoes and only 67Lds

If you speed read this post it will deffo seem much briefer than it actually turned out lol.  The reason for quickness is I do believe the Dirty Princess gift is a Valentines one so you might want to grab that quickly.

PS. That’s my new gym/sports hall and sorry it ain’t free but at only 15 prims it was almost perfect for what I wanted, it’s a skybox and I want a land based one.  Anyhow I can’t wait till I’ve got time to shove all my gymmy stuff in there and pretend I’m a gym bunny.

Romance is DEAD!(XOXO Hunt).

Boo Hoo! So far in this hunt, all I’ve won is Pizza and whats even worse is I can’t eat it!

This is the XOXO Hunt and you have to get the Free hud, either from the MP or inworld, check out the blog link for the details and more, you simply wear the hud and you can click on the shops you’re interested in and not only does it send you the LM but the image at the top changes to show you what the hunt prize is which makes it easy to pick and choose what goodies you want to hunt for.

What you’re looking for is a box of chocolates and tbh the shops I’ve hunted in have them out in very obvious places so even a useless hunter like me found them with no problem.  You stand close to the box of choccies and type “xoxo” in chat and you either get the goodies or a b*tch slap that your “romancing has failed” and you walk away with your heart broken and a tear in your eye.  You can try again but only 24hours later OR pay a small sum for the item, 50Lds.

Follow the blog link at the bottom for the LMs and Links for the hud plus there is a link to the pictures of the prizes and there is a nice mix of clothes, nails, and decor.  There is a couple of items I’d even pay the 50Lds for but I’ve been eBaying in RL and plant buying in SL and I’m broke! So I will slap that hud back on tomorrow and “XOXO” till I win the damned prizes I want.

PS.  This pizza came from a shop I’ve not visited in years, Lost Junction, and it’s full of great and funny decor items and other odds n sods so it’s well worth a visit as you can’t get this stuff anywhere else in SL.

FREE, 25Lds and “you paid how much”!!!!

Faith has waved her fairy wand and our sim has gone from blinding white to green in celebration of Spring, and yes I know it’s early but it’s our SL and in our SL it’s getting warmer.

Anyhow, I decided it was time to refresh the tree’s, any excuse to go shopping.

This is the FREEBIE from Nadine Reverie’s shop called 3D Trees (but there is more than just tree’s in her shop or rather her sims).

I’ve rezzed 2 copies of this Hawthorn Tree and shrunk the one that’s slightly in front of the larger one.  Both sizes are 10prims but this is a substantial tree and if you have a small plot then a tree of this size is a perfect plot filler.  Although it’s a freebie it lacks none of the quality and a nice little bonus is that it’s copy and MOD, my fav word.  I didn’t tear it apart limb from limb but I know that you can take big chunks of it to create big shrubs and they work out at just 1 prim.  So I’ve left these 2 on our sim and when I get back in I’m gonna shred em.

These trees are the 25Ld ones and I will be back to the “Over the Moon” shop as there is other landscaping items at more than reasonable prices.

All of these pictures were taken in our sims setting and I think there is a lovely haze around these trees but they stand up so well in so many settings and again only 25Lds! Copy as well, not sure about mod as I’ve only just started slapping stuff down and will get to the finer landscaping when I’ve got all the planting I want.

These trees come in sets of 6 linked together and for the linked trees they’re only 2 prims and they have a nice random link to them and I have spotted they are mod but I’ve not played with them yet.

These are the “you paid how much”trees.

TBH I can’t remember how much I paid for these Larch tree’s it probably was something like 1,250Lds and they were worth every Linden.

One of the lessons I’ve learned is that if you can buy landscaping that is seasonal then buy it because if it’s as quality as these are they will last you not just for SL years but SL seasons as changing out seasonal landscaping can cost you so much money in the end so trees, shrubs etc like this can end up being a great investment in the end.

You can also buy these trees at cheaper prices, I think they start at 300Lds, of course at that price they come with some restrictions ie non-copy, non-seasonal etc but it’s clearly marked on the box as to what that set does.  As I’ve said I’ve got the seasonal and in this picture they’re set for spring.  This is a great shop even if you just have a small plot as you can buy eveything from a single tree to a forest and with if you check out her MP shop you can buy from as little as 10Lds!

PS. These massive trees and unbelievably only 2-3 prims.

3D Trees. (Inworld) OK, The LM will take you a set LM and in front of you is 3 boxes clearly marked and you just click on the one for the trees and once you’ve TPed you just  follow the path through the”golden archway” past the AV, I swear he has been stood there for a couple of days now, past the grapevines on the trellis and VOILA it’s just there on the small hill in front of the Swamp Cyprus tree’s LOL.  Sounds a bit convoluted but honestly if you go over I think it will all seem clear as to where you have to go to find it plus I must add that I don’t think the tree is marked as being free but when you click on it you can see it is.

A fun way to kill a Sunday. (lots of randomness & Freebies).

Just like Faith I’m still waiting to be able to get into the “Shop your heart out” event and the rest of them so I decided to throw in the towel and rummage in my invent and I came across a very old Freebie which still made me chuckle and I was off to see if the stuff was still there and IT IS!

Tooter Claxton is or was the only creators of a whole load of what was at that time, about 10+ years ago, inventive, creative, weird, wonderful, basic FREEBIES for everyone.  Everyone has or even still has things they picked up from the old Arcadia shop and even now all this time late I had a lovely time looking at the old stuff and some of it has now gone full circle and that “basic prim look” makes them almost look classic.

All those things in the boxes to your right are free and the stuff on the stall and what you can’t see do cost put only a few Lindens.  In the free boxes there is everything from pizza boxes to full builds.  The AVs on the stand are really unique and funny and a great way to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

Then I TPed to the next LM in Tooters profile and it brought me to this and the other free builds.

I actually not only still have this slum apartment complex in my invent but I actually always intended to live in it….I might still do it now I have a whole sim to play in lol.

This is just inside the entrance of this building.

This is one of the rooms inside of this building.  It’s a primmy build but then you do have it fully decored in and out plus stairs and corridors all done in this unique basic tat style.  I don’t know how many rooms there are in total but what  a unique place to live in and I don’t see why you couldn’t even become a Slum Landlord.

So check out Tooters profile and check out his “picks” for the list to some interesting places and have a lovely relaxed lazy Sunday.

PS. If the buildings aren’t in the first LMs boxes you can simply click and buy them as they are set out on the sim in the second LM.

PPS This stuff is copy, mod and trans BUT you NEVER EVER SELL IT! This stuff even from the start was meant to be free for all and people always stuck to that rule.
