Be a Tarte. (20Ld Group Gifts & Info on The Hot Chocolate Crawl).

The “The Hot Chocolate Crawl” is basically a list of some of the top shops in SL such as Dust Bunny. Each shop has an item out priced at just 75Lds which is a bargain price to pick yourself up something really nice.  I personally was tempted by 2 items but managed to TP out before I caved in.  I’ve decided that before I buy anything I go through my invent and bin as much free and paid for items which I don’t wear and only then will I buy or pick up new things.

One shop involved in this crawl is Tarte and Tarte has some FREEBIES out for us….nope Sh*t for brains has struck again as it does cost to join the Tarte Group but only 20Lds.

This is my little workroom in my home and the freebies are the Christmas tree, the mirror with the photos on the floor and some of the clutter on the table and the plant in the window.  Although a lot of you may recognise the work desk as an Apple Fall Freebie.

The mirror comes with instructions on how to change the images on the photos for ones of your own and I think that whole set up is just 3 prims.  On the table is a small set of craft clutter.  I’m not showing you one of the other gifts which is a little pile of nail varnish bottles as they wouldn’t fit into this room but both them and this craft clutter I do believe are only 1 prim and soooo detailed!

In the first picture, you can see this planter and it’s too big, so although this is a close-up picture of it and it still looks big it has been shrunk down and looks so much better for it.

I’ll put the link to the start of the crawl where you can click on the poster and get the list of shops involved.

Happy Chrumpkins. (Freebies).

Not doing to well with clothing so I decided to do a bit of old LM hopping and thats how I ended up at Zen Creations.  Just before I was about to walk out of the shop, it’s an oversized barn, and do a fly over the sim I spotted FREE Christmas Trees.

You get a hud to change the baubles and star also you can have the branches with or without the snow and the addition of a tree skirt means you can have this tree either inside or outside of your home.  At 11 prims not too bad either and copy/mod as well.

This tree is a free for all gift, you just buy the hat gift boxes but if you join the Free Group then you can pick up these Chrumpkins as well.

I do not know why but it hurts my head even thinking the word “Chrumpkins”!  However I do love Pumpkins and Christmas so the blending of these two things make for a great decor item.  The Chrumpkins is unlinked so if you want to save 2 prims then you can delete it, the rest of them are linked inc the Mistletoe and I think it was only 3 prims for the lot.  Does say mod but I think I’d just leave them as they are.

Fabulous.(FREEBIES).

LeLutka is a well knows mesh head shop so to find that they have these AMAZING trees out for their Free group is a good reason for you to check the shop out BUT as it happens I checked the group and it’s actually there in the group notices so I’ve not been over to the LeLutka shop yet but it’s another one where I need to grab a load of the demo mesh heads in my never-ending quest to find a face that fits.

I also picked up from the notices, although you do have to go over to the Sevyn East shop to grab it, info about this free GG of a classic winter coat.

The coat comes in so many sizes you won’t have a problem finding a fit plus a small 4 textured Hud.  But the Hud is borked, it “adds” to your body not the screen, but it’s not a big issue and you can simply rezz it and it’s big enough to easily spot and just click the button of your colour choice and then delete it, you rezz a copy.  If this coat isn’t of any interest still pop over as although this is the December gift and it’s on the wall to your left in the shop not far away are other GG’s and they might be more of an interest to you.

The boots are an old GG but possibly/probably are still at the Belle Epoque shop, you get a nice selection of colours, great texturing etc so although they’re a repeat blog I’ll pop over to check they’re still there in case you’ve missed them.  I’m glad I went over to Belle Epoque as they have a new GG out but for the TeleportHub group and I’ve grabbed that.  These boots are still there and it’s only 10Lds to join the Belle Epoque group and there are other gifts but you have already seen them.

Back to the Lelutka gift.

Just excellent and I know my picture settings have changed the colour all round but these trees are 100% stunning.  As you can see they’re copy and editable.  You get 2 versions a low prim (11) and not low prim(20) and you can shrink them down to the size of the one I’m holding (3)prim.  Didn’t actually think about seeing how big I can make them but since I have to do a lot of clearing up when I log back in I might just do that.

From the picture you cannot even see what the difference is between the low and high prim tree’s and so I zoomed in and can you see it?

The tree on the right is the 20prim one and thats simply because of the faint lines on the baubles, apart from that these tree’s are virtually identical.  It’s the same with Mina hairs in that you get a “material” and “non-material” version, some people will find that just by using an item with just a little bit less detailing makes their SL life run smoother.

Rezz in Edit. (Shhh not “Free Tree” but a single Linden).

TreeeeeeSo poor I decided to cling onto my remaining Lindens and go hunting instead.  I chose the Christmas Candy Cane Hunt because there is so many shops involved including some I love so I thought I’d be almost guaranteed to get  some Crimbo goodies.  A big plus is a comprehensive list of LMs and Hints which for idiots to me is always appreciated.

OMG I actually walked past this tree and although I noticed it because of its unusual design and great colouring I didn’t even prim check it because I thought that there was NO WAY this was going to be as low primmed as it has turned out to be.  So with a little hunting I found the CCCH item (what you’re looking for is a cupcake with a candy cane sticking out of it and the clue given is “Sweet fairies guard me”) so when I’d picked up a couple of hunt items I TPed back to my platform and was more than pleasantly suprised that this is the actual hunt prize. So chuffed with it. The colours are bright and primary, the lanterns with the candle flame are old-fashioned and not only that but a total of 11Prims means this can be rezzed anywhere…as long as it fits LOL.  As you can see this is a big un and because it’s actually animated as well you cannot resize it but again at 11 prims this is not primmy at all.

Lots of really lovely and unusual indoors and outdoor decorations at this Christmas Market.  Special mention to the excellent 3 tiered Christmas tree style Village scene which would look really unusual instead of a traditional Christmas tree and amazingly enough for all the detail only 13Prims.

“Rezz in Edit” is something you may have heard of but not really sure what it means. Simply click on something and go into edit, I’m in edit mode on that plain prim,  and then whilst still in edit drag the item you wish to rezz from your invent and rezz it and you will now see that is now in edit mode.  This is very useful for items which have unlinked bits to it. Most of the time if you forget to do this then it’s easy just to edit the pieces back together but sometimes you may find that there are too many bits or you’ve broken something such as an animation because you should have rezzed in edit.  Not too sure if I’ve made it clear but practice makes perfect.
