My day …

How did my day go today? I think this snapshot at EarthStones says it all…


I have to say though, for all of you who came out to the shop for the gift card giveaway, THANK YOU! You guys made my day so much brighter!  I haven’t mentioned it before now, but I may as well. I’m a grown woman, a wife, a mother… and I have mono. Also known as the kissing disease or glandular fever, this stuff should be known as “oh my God, I’m going to die.”

I’m so darn exhausted I could sleep all day and then sleep some more.  And today, I decided to heck with it, I was getting OUT! I was going to go to the BOOKSTORE and enjoy being out. It didn’t last long, and I actually fell asleep in the car almost as soon as I got there. This stuff saps all your energy!

So when everyone who came by was so friendly, and so supportive, it really made a difficult day brighter. I can’t thank you enough. ❤


I was building this morning after being awake all night…

I was awake all night. Good conversations on SL tend to do that to a girl. And as I was building, the frame caught my eye… my av was breathtaking. Is there a more beautiful shot on flickr? Can there be anything more beautiful?

I am gorgeous. I am high fashion. Weep, those of you who see my beauty, for you are not me.


Mrs. Obama, why is your bottom dancing?

I was nPhotobucketoodling around with my friend Din, and we were trying to figure out what was going on with Michelle Obama’s outfit. Neither of us liked what was going on- she blamed the belt, I blamed photoshop. We started talking… “What if I removed the belt?” “Could you make the sweater higher?” Since I always save copies of my work, I ended up with several layers. I kept flipping back and forth between them, absolutely transfixed…

You can click this for a bigger image. I’m telling you guys, we laughed hard about that, including roleplaying dialogue between Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey. Some days I think we have way too much time on our hands. You guys should go look at the shopping pron post that triggered all this hilarity. It’s interesting!

~Tea Lane~ at the RFL Clothing Fair!


Holy wow, but I didn’t think we were going to make it on time for this one. Teagan and I are lucky enough to be participating in the RFL Clothing Fair! (You can find our shop on Sim 2.) We’ve got a bunch of brand new items iyou can only find there. Teagan’s listed hers, and now I have to share mine…

charisFirst off is Charis. I love this. I’ve been working on this one for 4 months, off and on. I know, I suck, I should have finished it months ago, but it’s done now! And it’s WONDERFUL, even if I do say so myself! It comes in two versions (for one price), the modest version and the more daring version with one breast exposed! Take your pick between 16 colors, and match it up with the tutu I’ve put out with it! I sort of lost my mind with this one, so there are 8 dark jewelly tones and 8 bright sherbetty tones. That’s why I made a black tutu and a white tutu… so <strike>I</strike> you could coordinate, of course! It’s all for you!

chariscolorsThen there’s Gertie. See, the theme for the clothing fair is pirates, and I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much I love pirate wear. This started out with a sketch, and turned into something that I am absolutely in love with.

gertieadGunpowder Gertie was known as the Pirate Queen of the Kootenays. After reading <a href=””>her story</a>, is there any surprise I wanted to make this gorgeous outfit for her?

Ok, maybe she wore pants. Probably, actually. But this is SL, and in SL, she’d have been a glamorous pirate! She’d have commanded her vessel in the finest of clothing… and maybe in her off time, she’d have worn this! 😉

We’ve also got the usual assortment of dollarbies hanging around, so please stop by, pick up some cute stuff, and do some shopping to help someone else. It’s one of the best things you can do with your Second Life!

Pinchyface is back!!!

OMG, y’all, I am so excited! I was working on a glamour shot for a new product or two this morning and then…

I looked closely. She looked familiar. Could it be? I haven’t seen Pinchyface in so long, and I’ve really missed her! She left without a word, just disappearing in the night. I kept hoping I’d see her face again…

And now she’s back! Oh, Pinchy, you don’t have to explain. I’m just so happy you’ve come back! All I ask is that you not leave me again… I was lost without you!
