Attached

I still work with more fashion designers than decor, but I am slowly but surely building up the decor side of things. I fall more and more in love with decor with each scene I create. I tend to spend more time on my decor scenes and sometimes I get more attached to them than I should. This is one of those. I’ll probably remove the shower, the puddle, and the clothes on the floor….perhaps even the shelf behind the tub and the decor on it. That’s manly so I can save prims and space. Just don’t be surprised if you see this bathroom as a background for a fashion shot I do later.

Picture Perfect Patio

I’ve had so much fun creating all these decor scenes lately. I only have like six going all the time. *laughs* This one was a huge favorite of mine, bringing together some of my all time favorite stores. Not all of them, mind you, I’m not sure I could even do that. However, one thing I’ve always wanted in the real world was a deck like this. Somewhere to hang out alone or with friends, surrounded by lush greenery and the sea. This is the second week of 6 Republic and that means you’ve got until the 20th to get all the goodies, cuz this is a two week event that only happens twice a year. So, all you decor junkies best get on over there and scoop up the goods, so you can create you own picture perfect patios.

We Are All Different

Well, another post on Facebook has inspired me to write. Someone asked why bloggers don’t credit skins…or this…or that. This was met with tons of replies from more people pointing the fingers at bloggers for how they do this wrong and should do this and shouldn’t do that. There were bloggers defending themselves. Others were saying how they don’t blog certain things. I even commented that I rarely list appliers, because I usually don’t remember what I’ve got on.
That thread has stayed with me ever since. The thing is, we all blog for different reasons, and we all have our own way of blogging. Just like stores and events look for different things in bloggers. I think people that don’t blog and even some that do are under some misconceptions that there are certain rules about blogging. There aren’t. We all blog the way we want to blog. We set our own standards. The only rules we are obligated to follow are rules we agree to when joining a designer’s team and that’s IF the designer has rules in place. Not all designers do.
Whether you’re a blogger or you like to follow the blogs, the only thing you accomplish by attacking bloggers is drive them from their passion. If there’s a particular blogger that you admire and you really want to know more about what they post, please go to that blogger directly. Please don’t assume we are all the same. Please know that we are as different as the people that follow the blogs. Some like to read stuff, some just want the photos and the credits. So, unless you want to be attacked as an audience, please do not attack us as a community.

Grab ’em & Save Time

I’m going to sing the praises of Grab My Credits again. Do you see this picture? OMG, it would have taken me hours to list everything and make sure I didn’t miss anything. I was done listing in under an hour! If you blog decor and you don’t have this. The one thing I’ve always hated about blogging decor was grabbing all those credits, but THIS has made everything so much easier and now I can go absolutely crazy with decor. I get so much more excited about my decor scenes now, large or small…THIS is epic. I’m telling you….get this!!!

Possession

“Listen as the wind blows
From across the great divide
Voices trapped in yearning
Memories trapped in time
The night is my companion
And solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here
And not be satisfied
And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear
Through this world I’ve stumbled
So many times betrayed,
Trying to find an honest word,
To find the truth enslaved,
Oh you speak to me in riddles and
You speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath,
Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear
Into this night I wander,
It’s morning that I dread,
Another day of knowing of
The path I fear to tread,
Oh, into the sea of waking dreams
I follow without pride,
Nothing stands between us here
And I won’t be denied
And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear
I’ll hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes”

Let Heaven Commence

There are few things in live that feel better than slipping into a hot bath. If a bathroom is nicely decorated it’s even better. Add a few candles and relaxing music, let heaven commence. While I can only do this little trick in the winter time, I’ve found that I can extend life of the hot water by closing the door and cranking up a small space heater. It far too hot for that trick in summer time, though in the summer sometimes a cool bath can really hit the spot. Either way, I love my garden tub and I have a true weakness for the amazing bathroom designs available in Second Life.

nothing feels better than this

Roots

“I thank you for all the lives you’ve led
I thank you for every word you said
I thank you for walking away
I thank you
I thank you for the promises you broke
For always watching, watching while I choke
I thank you for teaching me
Yes, I thank you for your hurting
I bite down a little harder
My blades a little sharper
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
Strike back a little harder
I scream a little louder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
I’m stronger than I ever knew
I’m strong because of you
I hit back a little louder
Fuck you a little harder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
I thank you for the hole you dug in me
Filled it with cement, sunk me in your sea
Thank you for being so obscene
I thank you

I thank you for never facing me
Swimming in the mud, never coming clean
I thank you for nothing in between
Yes, I thank you for leaving
I bite down a little harder
My blades a little sharper
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
Strike back a little harder
I scream a little louder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
I’m stronger than I ever knew
I’m strong because of you
I hit back a little harder
Fuck you a little louder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
You wanna know why I like the pain, you say?
There’s a sick part of me thankful for the hate, I
I stay positive and I, I push forward, ya see?
I, I gotta do the right thing for my family!
So I smile and I say that the world is just fine,
as these fucking parasites eat up my spine,
So I ask you once, and I ask you again
Where do your roots start
And where do your roots end?
I bite down a little harder
My blades a little sharper
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
Strike back a little harder
I scream a little louder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
I’m stronger than I ever knew
I’m strong because of you
I hit back a little louder
Fuck you a little harder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow…

Wash It All Away

Many years ago, I learned how to let go of people, places, and things. To release my attachment to them no matter how deep the connection. If these things were toxic to me or other people in general, I had to let go. I can’t sit here and pretend like I have somehow perfected this act of release. However, thanks to being an Army brat, letting go of people and places has been a lot easier for me than most.. It’s important that we recognize the not so good stuff in our lives and learn how to wash it away.

In Second Life, that’s a much easier thing to do. Simply block and mute, done. So, what you come across a blocked avatar from time to time. If you feel the need to explain do it, but don’t attack them. You really have no right to point fingers and place blame on them. The best way to go about it is to simply tell them, that for whatever reason  you don’t mesh well and you don’t like the person you become around them. Because at the end of the day, isn’t that what it’s all about? I don’t like how someone, something, or somewhere makes me feel…so I remove myself from said person, place, or thing as soon as possible. While it seems like common sense, it also seems to be damn near impossible for some people. I can talk about this topic all day, so if you need help figuring out how to let go, I’m happy to chat about it. Otherwise, I encourage you to do some mental spring cleaning and wash it all away.
