I’m a hoarder.(Cheapies n Mention of FREEBIES).

I have an artists soul but the talent of a 4-year-old.  That doesn’t stop me from slapping paint onto paper and occasionally I do manage to make something decent enough for it to go on the…..fridge LOL.

I picked this up from the Kei spot stall for just 25Lds because you can never have too much crafting stuff in SL and esp RL.  Only 4prims as well and it comes with poses, I especially liked the “admiration” pose which has you kneeling and admiring your work of art, trust me that never happens in RL lol.  I do believe it also has cuddle or couple poses but of course this for me is just decor.

A lot of the items here are items that were offered as 25Ld Tue or 30Ld Sat items but also lots of discounts and I bought a burlapped bath for just 50Lds which I’ve not even looked at yet but it looks great and is a cheap price.

As for the FREEBIES you will have to join the Free VIP Redeux group and on each stall is a gift and there are a lot of stalls so a lot of gifts.  Yes a lot of them will be small things such as jewelry, tattoos etc but just because I don’t wear them doesn’t mean they’re no good plus I mainly grab everything so I can have a lovely and relaxing time unpacking all the goodies, binning, sorting and more often checking out the shops they came from.

Be quick though as this event is over on the 21st so at least you have a couple of days.

Yes & No.(Freebies and Cheapies).

First the Freebie.  Sorry but branches for horns is just one of those things which aren’t my cup of tea but these are pretty decent and in the dark, those lit bits really light up and people do love them.  I picked them up from a shop that is new to me or should I say a “sim” as this home and garden shop is spread all over a whole sim so when I get some SLing time I’m going to have a nice wander around.

There is another GG out for us at the Love Home LM which are stars for you to scatter on your land or wall.

“The Cookie Jar” Christmas Market, where I picked up the wreath, is neat and tidy little event so if you’re short on time then it’s a nice little pop over and since all the freebies are on the table at the LM then it will take you even less time but I did have a wander around and spotted this super wreath for 50Lds which is just my cup of tea.

I actually haven’t had the time to open any of the Freebies so I have no idea of whats there but there is plenty of them to ensure you find some keepers. The wreath is on the DD (Dreamland Design stall) and I said it cost me only 50Lds and is 3 prims.  I actually love Hellebores and have them in my RL garden and as soon as I spotted this it was in the bag as we say.  What you can’t see is that it does come with a delicate sparkle but there is a copy of it on the stall so you can check it out for yourself.  My only grumble is that it’s non-mod because after Christmas I’d like to keep it up and it would look better without the bow.

PS.  GIVE BLOOD! Ok, I’m not after a pat on the back or anything because it was only a couple of years ago that I finally decided to man-up, or woman-up, and go give blood.  Yes, it’s 2 pricks (they prick your finger for a drop to test for iron first) and pricks hurt! BUT it’s nothing, it’s a couple of seconds of “ouchie” and especially at this time of year when people are busy doing stuff the blood banks run low.  AND at the moment in the UK, they’re so short of O & B Negative blood that if you have this blood type you can just walk in, you can do that in any case but it’s better to make an appointment, and they will DRAIN YOU as they’re desperately short.  So check out the nearest blood donation service to you and just go because one day it might just be YOU who needs that donation. PS They give you biccies and a drink afterwards so it’s not all bad.

1x10Lds Overwhelmed!(Ooodles and Ooodles of Gifts).

I TPed from the Roiro shop to check out their Christmas tree which you can only buy at The Chapter Four event so I TPed over and for a measly 10Lds joining fee you get “Ooodles” of gifts at this event.

Virtually every stall has a gift on it but I ended up with rezzing exhaustion and so out of all of the gifts I unpacked I’m just showing you the 1 item because I thought it makes for a very interesting Christmas card lol.

As always lots of this n that and all excellent quality.

Got To Go Back (Freebies).

OH Lord what an SL morning, too much “Borking” going on for me but I managed to get to a special event for Moda called “Moda Free SL 1st Anniversary Event” and that means LOADS of FREEBIES!  Almost every display has a freebie or dollarbie and I grabbed them ALL but I still have to go back because the full priced items are actually really reasonably priced.  I had picked up a couple of demos to try on (a strappy top and floaty skirt) and they’re so good, so handy and so cheap I have to go back and pick them up for myself.

But now for the Free stuff.

This bright and quirky outfit is not to everyone’s taste but I thought it was cute with a paler skin and more outlandish hair a Kawaii little look.

This simple black and white dress fitted like a glove.  Comes with SLink Med basic black shoes as well so a good full outfit.

This outfit is a one piece.  Although the 2 last outfits are black and white this isn’t a colour theme of this event.

OK I basically ended up with a whole folder full of stuff from here and I’m only showing you the few that I managed to unpack.  TBH I think most of it will end up in my trash folder but then I do have an invent which is embarrassingly stuffed so I just don’t need to hold onto things but one thing is sure,  I was pretty impressed with the variety of Appliers that came with a lot of outfits and of course the socks and tattoos that are there so I may not have a use for them but I highly recommend you pop over.

PS You’re going to have to be an adult to get onto this sim.

Have you ever?

A lot of people might not know it but Faith and PD had an in world and MP store which ran successfully for many many years.  Sadly over the past year or so this was pushed to the back burner but now the Creative Bug has bitten Faith on the ass and once again she is stood on her platform, rezzing, texturing, shaping and basically making a mess but out of this will come some seriously Super Kawaii items.  Then on my SL meanderings I came across this lovely new shopping area and what I was wondering is have YOU ever thought of setting up a shop or maybe starting small with a little stall. Lots of shops offer excellent Sculpties Full Perm Packs.  If your more Teccie minded then you may even want to try some Mesh.

ShoppingWe all know that sinking feeling when a shop rezzes and we can see instantly from the design of the shop and where it is that it’s going to contain TAT, not even cheap tat just tatty tat but on the other hand when we find a shopping area as lovely, well planned and landscaped like this then we know it is going to attract equally as good quality shops the  area and in fact it was the shop Olive which I came over to check out and that is most definitely a shop that doesn’t sell Tat.  So new that Rose Olive Doe (owner of Olive) hasn’t completely set up for business yet but I can see that this place will be filled soon with stalls and shops stuff with great stuff.

Shopping1So pop over check out the prices and prim allowance for the stalls and shops which are still available and you never know just like Marks & Spencer’s a small stall today a massive conglomerate.

So FREAKING SIMPLE (SAH Freebie)

Honestly if you look closely you can see me having a swing in the middle of all those lights but what the heck..artistic licence rules and I just love the twinkly lights.

As it happens I almost didn’t go for the hunt item because not only do I have swings aplenty but because I know Catnip stocks some great stuff (I know because I have quite a few items and I can recommend their belts for amusement and details) I figured I would swing by (joke geddit) and pick it up.  The swing has a nice flow on it and looks great but an added plus for me is when you jump of it slowly slows down so none of that annoyance trying to click on it to stop.  So this is the Suicide Awareness Hunt item and I say go for it because if you have  a tree and no tree swing then shame on you.

Now this is the “FREAKING SIMPLE” because how simple and yet amazing does this floating clock look?  3 prims and an all so cheap price of 70lds and what an amazing touch for your home or land. I almost missed it! A good lesson to search out every nook and cranny because downstairs you will see a chair in front of a fireplace and an invitation for you to sit..SIT! because you’re then tped to the room next door and it’s an Alice In Wonderland shopping experience.  You can transform your home into an insane world of painting white roses red or sitting down to a Mad Hatters tea party and this is also where you find this floating clock. Remember only 3 prims! CatNip is a shop of the weird, wonderful, freaky and downstairs a bit of kink I highly recommend a visit.
The Sim.  I’m giving you 2 LMs the first is for the landing area and I recommend you land here and saunter down to the carnival through the wooded area and don’t mind the corpses they’re dead and can’t hurt you.  This is a carnival themed sim and in SL that means dark, scary and gaudy and they have created not only a great shopping experience with all the tents set up as shops but loads of carnival games and a big wheel and just a damned good place to visit.
