Snow Bunny

Although my mind is already turning towards Spring and warmth, sometimes I’m reminded that we’re still stuck in the midst of Winter and we have to battle through! Two things that really tick my cute buttons with this snowy chair is that it contains a snow angel animation AAAND there’s a snow particle animation too. Both very very cute. Sadly, I couldn’t show the snow angel animation, so you’ll have to go see for yourself, while I sit here with a wet backside….getting grumpy.

Cast Your Eyes Forward

Look forward, to the horizon. That’s where your future lies. Embrace it. Don’t let your fears be the bars on a self imposed cage that holds you back.

Today I’m stepping out of my comfort zone a little and I have a person and a group to thank for this. I recently participated in the Blogger Vlogger Network (BVN) group’s Secret Santa and I was drawn Jarla Capalini. “So, how do I blog about a blogger as a gift?” you ask. Well, it’s a very good question and one I’ve thought about this week carefully. You start by profile perving, flickr perving and blog perving. Generally, you perv and I learned a few things:

  1. Jarla takes amazing photographs. Her use of lighting and shadows just makes me think “Wow!” every time I see them.
  2. Jarla has a couple of quotes in her profile that really resonate with me. The window bars in this picture are inspired by one of them.
  3. Jarla loves motorbikes!! This makes my heart sing because I have a trike in real life and I admit, I drooled at her rl profile picture (sorry Jarla, still profile perving).

So, what does a little blogger like me do with this information? Well, we take risks. We play with lighting and projectors. We edit windlights, play with shadows and then a moment of brilliance emerges. Obviously, this moment of brilliant includes a motorbike and an excuse to wear leather. So Jarla, this is my gift to you and it comes with thanks, for inspiring me to develop my skills further.

Two fingers are better than one?

This week I had the honour of working with Ms Zexy Queen herself on this picture. I’d posted on facebook this week regarding some of the things I’ve learned being a blogger over the last 8 months and one of them was about collaborating with other bloggers. I’ve done it once in the past and always love the opportunity to work with people and learn from them. What have I learned? I take too long getting ready! The Boss would agree, I’m sure lol.

If you want the credits for Zexy’s look, check out her blog HERE. In fact, why don’t you follow it? Lots of gorgeousness to drool over! Needless to say I had a lot of fun putting this picture together and I look forward to future collabs with Ms Queen!

Music is food for the soul

I love music. Listening to it on my walk to work, in the car; if there isn’t anything to watch on tv I’ll pop a music channel on and knit to my heat’s content. It’s an integral part of my daily life. I adore attending live music events and am signed up to a bunch of newsletters. If I see a band I like the look of…that’s it. I’m there. I’ve been going to gigs by myself for years and I love the freedom that comes with it. It’s my experience, it’s my way of connecting with other like minded people and sharing something…tribal…with them. It touches my soul and nourishes it.

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been DJing at one of my favourite clubs in SL, the Twisted Cork. It’s been baby steps so far but what excites me is the prospect of sharing something I love dearly with like minded people. It also gives the Boss a break from my incessant IMs asking for song requests. Now he can just tell me “play it yourself” and I can! He’s been my mentor through this experience and I’m enjoying learning a new craft. He jokes that they’ve ‘created a monster’ and maybe they’re right. But, somehow I don’t think so 🙂

If you’re ever at a loose end, come listen for yourself: Tuesdays 1-2.30PM SLT – my 90 min rock block at the Twisted Cork.

Enjoy x
