E!

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.

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

Things that piss me off- about or in SL – a Strawberry Singh Meme

petp

Ok, so I changed the title a bit. If you want to read the original Meme that the lovely Berry wrote you can do so here: http://strawberrysingh.com/2013/04/01/my-sl-pet-peeves-meme/

There are of course exceptions to this and some of this is just meant to be funny:

1. Right when I log in I like a few minutes to read notecards or look at group notices. There is a very short list of people to where this does not bother me at all but if I don’t know you too well it’s going to annoy me a little.

2. When people misspell my name as “Silvia” or when strangers call me “hun, sweetie.. etc.” especially if you are someone that is wearing a system skirt with 2009 Damselfly hair and bling or if you are a dude with basically anything “Gorean” in your profile or your wang is exposed or any combination of anything I mentioned, basically you are gonna get muted.

Speaking of wangs and such.. why do certain guys deem it necessary to IM you out of the blue with shit like “Y U SO SESSY for me.. giv me a BJ girl..” Yeah let me get right on that.

I also hate it when people downright lie about their gender. There is no need for that.

3. Flickr groups: Please don’t paste me your awards, I don’t want them. I don’t care if you saw my image in the “Big Booty Bitches of SL group” I do not want your big ass tacky gif in the comments. Please GTFO. I love regular comments though and when you comment and favorite or comment or favorite my Flickr Photos it makes my day.

4. My current annoyance is with a store that I just went to recently. I do not want to use your almost all white HUD with no contrast to where I have to squint my eyes to the point of pain just to shop with or deposit money so that I can shop at your store or get a million folders for your demos and then try on said demo and realize you have to buy everything else separate and there is not even a demo for that and if there is I don’t know how the fuck to find it. *takes a deep breath* Shopping in SL should not have to be so stressful.

5. When you are just sitting there minding your own business and a group IM pops up and you close it and it pops up again. WTF is that? Or when someone IM’s the group and asks for a LM or when you tell someone the name of a store and they say LM? Why can’t you use search?

Anyhow, take what I said with a grain of salt if you made it this far.

Dreaming of Beatrix Potter

bp

I did a previous post of The Noble Storybook but I returned this afternoon after having done the post and I saw new things to fall in love with all over again. I was so excited about doing the post and taking the actual pictures that I missed some details. I think this is going to be one of those sims that I can return to many times and find something new each time. That is the beauty of the world.

I looked down on her desk and read: “There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they’ll take you.” ― Beatrix Potter

As I was walking around the second time I was thinking a lot about Beatrix Potter and It was cool to think about walking around in her home, touching her desk.. sitting in her chair, warming up by her fire and smelling the ocean as it wafts in through the open window while listening to the music of birds. It was quite inspiring for me. I have missed that “wonder” of Second Life where you can feel like you are in a living breathing replica of the real thing.

I am wearing a dress from e! that is new and from Fameshed as well as the brand new Truth hair that is also from Fameshed. Jewelry from Cae, shoes from Gos Boutique and skin from Glam Affair.

The place is changed now, and many familiar faces are gone, but the greatest change is myself. I was a child then, I had no idea what the world would be like. I wished to trust myself on the waters and the sea. Everything was romantic in my imagination. The woods were peopled by the mysterious good folk. The Lords and Ladies of the last century walked with me along the overgrown paths, and picked the old fashioned flowers among the box and rose hedges of the garden.”
― Beatrix Potter

Stumbled my bum unto some sales!

You know, designers are making such cute things lately that I can’t keep up. Stumblebum’s Insanity round that began on May 15th has many cute things and I’m featuring the top and short set from e! and the dresser and picture frames from Cheeky Pea. The stuff is amazing and well the colors are very bright and uplifting.

I’m also wearing brand new hair from Elikatira called Indulge and Belleza’s brand new beautiful skin Lily. My feet are from Slinkthe best mesh feet maker on the grid. My poses are from Purple Poses which you can get for super cheap at this round’s Perfect Wardrobe as well as my crazy cool color change nails from Virtual Insanity.
