Crafty Sunday Afternoon’s spell L-O-V-E!

1

It was a typical Sunday and Ryleigh and I were looking for something to do. I had seen something on SLPinteresting – on one of the boards of arts and crafts that you can do with your child and I thought that it would be fun to try, plus we both love the excuse to get out the paint. This was not a thing to do indoors so we went into the greenhouse – which is new from Vespertine at Collabor88.

2

I put out some old newspapers, and she watched me sitting on the table wondering what I was planning giggling when I used the paint brush to paint my hand! She watched as I first painted the Letter L and she is very smart so she recognized the letter right away. After I did that I put my hand down on to the red paper. She sounded out the L and smiled when I told her that she got it right and then I picked her up and put her in the chair.

I said give me those piggies! She laved and shook her head no but smiled really big when I explained that I was going to paint her feet! I told her that we were going to spelling out the word love with my hand as the O and her feet to make the V and she wiggled her toes and giggled and as I painted her feet, it was pretty ticklish!

3

I picked her up as not to get the paint everywhere and helped her step on to the paper to make her foot prints form a V holding her hands up to give her balance. She pressed her feet on the paper and made a perfect V! I painted the E in after that and we stepped back for a moment to look at our work.

The craft had turned out adorable and we decided to find a place for it in the house. But first we wanted a snapshot of ourselves – to show off our little project! After the paint dries we will find a place for it in our new home!

I am wearing – A white mesh tank top from Decoy at Collabor88 along with a pendant from Noodles – the Millie Rose pendant is also available right now at August’s Collabor88. I’m also wearing jeans from Maitreya, my hair is older E! hair.

The gardening set in the back ground you can get at the Dream Garden from Petite Bowtique.

The outfit that Ryleigh is wearing from Baby Pie is from Limited 50 along with the pose set from .click that we used but those are all sold out but you can still find some really nice limited edition items if you teleport to the Limited 50 event going on here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Jubilee/154/94/23

This is probably my favorite round ever of Collabor88, why you ask? Because its the Fantabulous birthday round and there are around 70 designers – this includes guests, people from the past and its just unbelievable the quality that is put into this and how it all came together. I’m in awe. Happy 2nd Birthday Collabor88!

Lark – Floating Tiki Bar

t1

The Lark Floating Tiki Bar was released a few days ago and is now for sale at Flux and is totally adorable and perfect for a summer party. I love the little flamingo lights. You can check out the Floating Tiki Bar and purchase it here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/BabyLicious/170/75/23

t2

I took this form Sienna’s blog but these are the details of the floating Tiki Bar:
• There are 5 animated poses accessible by a menu. The menu also offers a drink that will rez and can be worn with one of the animations or just held. Poses include 2 sitting, 1 floating, 1 treading water and 1 floating at the bar.

• If you’re in a no rez zone, it will give you the drink in your inventory.

• The flamingo lights turn on/off by a simple touch.

• 2 textures included so you can change the tiki sign and customize it to your liking.

I am also wearing the new Clubkini from One Bad Pixel and hair from Lelutka.

Ice Cream Saturday

ic1

It’s Saturday, and I wanted to write about a few things that I have gotten recently. The first is this brand new outfit from a favorite clothing brand – One Bad Pixel. The textures are lovely and I love almost anything silver. The pants fit so very well. I am wearing this outfit with my brand new Silver Gos shoes from Fameshed.

ic2

The poses are from this round of Acid Lily from Elephante. They are some cute ice cream sandwich eating poses and I thought about the ice cream cart from What next in our back yard and a picture was born! Acid Lily has really revamped and there are many new good stores involved and they are worth checking out here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ai%20Atoll/104/52/26

Dear Ryleigh/Cora,

It’s been an amazing month, and yet I feel like I’ve known you longer. I can’t really explain all that it means to me that you came into my life but I’m glad that you did. As if by magic you appeared.

I just want you know that you are very special to me and I hope that this is the first of many months. Thank you for getting my attention and thank you even more for becoming my kiddo and friend and being an adorable little sister to Syleee!

You made our family complete and our house a home.
You are my princess, starfish, tator-tot, Ry Ry Boo Boo!

Love, Mom.

Under the stars

Every so often a skybox will inspire me to make a little hide-away from the world. Vespertine made just that skybox for Fifty Linden Friday and I put a bunch of my favorite things in it and made a cozy little spot for snuggles.

I used furniture from LAQ, The Loft, Trompe Loeli, Alouette, Fri.day, Apple Fall, Zigana, Floorplan, Lisp, Dutchie, and Bazar. These are some of my favorite furniture places to shop in SL. If you wanna know where something is from – ask me! I love comments😛

Apple Fall & Scarlet Creative at Collabor88

c

I finally got my bedroom shaped up how I wanted it and wanted to show this very pretty bedroom set from Apple Fall and Scarlet Creative (who did the Wardrobe and Stool) which you can still get at Collabor88 for about another week or so.

The bed is beautiful and I love the soft look of the covers, the dresser and night stands to the dream sign over the bed and doll house complete with the botanical pics are just perfect to me. I love these pieces that really make your Second Life Home complete.

I also used things in the photos not at Collabor88 from Trompe Loeli, Tres Blah gacha vanity stuff, and emm shop (the little craft cabinets are new and adorable) I hope you like my bedroom!
