One of the many creators that is participating in the Expo this year is KraftWork who is also an Emerald level Sponsor for the event.  KraftWork has created the Kozy_Fireplace set exclusively for the event.  It includes all the things – a fireplace, an advent calendar, art frames, candles, greeting cards and stockings!   You can set it up as you like but KraftWork also provides a linked version of all the parts.  So if you already have a fireplace mantle or would prefer to set the items on a shelf, you CAN!  The set is bright and cheery and will bring a very happy Christmas spirit into your virtual home!  I would actually love to have that advent calendar in my first life home!

This item will be sold in a 100% vendor so that the entire purchase price of $250.00 will go to Relay For Life of Second Life.

We are just around the corner from the next round of The Arcade Gacha Shopping Event.  The December round is always one of my favorites because so much of the focus is on Christmas and holiday activities, winter fun, decor and all. The designers put their fingers to the bone and bring some awesome items that you will want to collect to decorate your home, your avatar and your surroundings.  Another good thing about The Arcade in December is that it opens with plenty of time to do ALL your Christmas shopping with everything so easily transferrable!  Take a look at the Shopping Guide and plan on just how you will spend your lindens!

.. the marfa collection ..

blog-112016-kraftwork-marfa-collection-lost-and-found

Nodnol Jameson has been a busy busy bee over the past weeks as she prepared for the opening of her new store – Kraftwork.  I shared the amazing store location last post and today I’m previewing her release for the “Lost and Found” event that opens tomorrow (November 22, 2016).  This set includes a sofa, small side table, a rug, a 2-frame set and a longhorn skull – all part of The Marfa Collection from Kraftwork.

blog-112016-2

In this second pic, the pose is from the sofa which has both single and couple poses. It’s great for 2 friends or a more romantic couple.  The cute little table holds a diary and the detail is so awesome.  The prints are simple but have such a sweet message.  The skull (seen in the top pic) is colorful and very detailed as well. And the rug has a fur texture that you could just bury your toes in.

Be sure to check out Kraftwork at this month’s Lost and Found starting tomorrow.  And to keep up with all the awesomeness that Nod is bringing to the grid – be sure to like the Kraftwork Facebook page too!
