Many men go fishing all of their lives
without knowing that
it is not fish they are after.

Arcade 3b

Arcade 3a

The first quarter of the year ends and we will arrive at April Fool’s Day…  But before we get there, you have that one LAST day to visit The Arcade Gacha Event to pick up some awesomeness. Tonight I’m hanging out in the Fisherman’s Delight build from 22769. The set includes furniture and the cabin structure which actually can perch over the water. I’ve also included a few items from Aria and llorisen along with the letter shelves from Sway’s. I can never resist including a puppy or cat so you might also see those from +half-deer+ and Kite, respectively.  Since I’m just hanging out, I threw on the cute shorts from Parker and a fun tee from e.marie. And furthering the sporty look, hair from Tableau Vivant and the shoes and glasses from Versov.

This round of Arcade has been fun with lots of options for decor, dressing and role- playing.  Run over tonight and tomorrow and finish out your collections!

.. doing a bit of vlogging ..

So I have decided to just try to do some vlogging in a way to learn something new but also as it provides a new way to display things – regions, creations, fashion, etc.  It provides the ability to showcase things in a different way.  My last blog was my first attempt and when I started the process as I wanted to show Kraftwork’s Le Plateau Loft in a more ‘real’ way.  I have also created a “intro” for my YouTube channel which you see here.


Now to figure out what the best video capture software is for me.  I am not quite ready to spend the cash for the widely suggested Camtasia, so I’ve been playing around with other options for capturing browsers or other applications.  Trying to stay on the “free” route so far… we shall see!

.. an autumn house ..

I want my home to be that kind of place–
a place of sustenance, a place of invitation, a place of welcome.

KraftWork Loft Blog 10.29.17

It has been a while since I’ve had a home to call mine in Second Life.  I designed my region and there are spaces that are homelike but it is open to the public so it isn’t really “my space”.  When NODNOL Jameson shared her creation for the semi-annual 6° Republic event that opens on November 4th, I opened it with great interest.  I have really been enjoying so many of the items that NOD has created for KraftWork and was ready to see another very cool build.  I wasn’t disappointed… the Le Plateau Loft is no exception.

I was actually inspired to try something that I’ve not done before  – a video blog or er..  vlog.  The last time I edited any video was years ago so it took me some time to get this together and while not awesome, I’m happy that I got it finished and I’m actually even happy with it.  I learned a few things and I think I’ll be better prepared next time!

As you can see from the video, the Le Plateau Loft from KraftWork is awesome!  The textures are spot-on and the amazing clerestory style windows are so inviting!  I stood inside and imagined the warm and cozy atmosphere that could be created here and then I got to work.  As I set up my new home in the sky, I focused on an autumn theme in much of my decor.  Using various items from so many different creators, I was able to create a space that I feel might just be inviting.

The skybox is a build within a box so when you peer through the windows, you see a residential street scene out of one and a wooded area from the other.  There is a window seat that includes single/couple animations, a built-in book shelf, a cool fireplace (fire is included separately) and a great loft area as well.  The build feels spacious and is scaled very realistically.  Since we are talking about a loft, NOD didn’t skimp on metal, wood and brick. She threw in the exposed duct work as well as great skylights to let more light inside.  And this Loft is set up to carry you year-round as NOD includes a HUD which allows you to select sunny or snowy scenes from the windows:

The 6° Republic event opens on November 6th.  This event is a decor and landscaping event that runs in May and November annually.  It started in 2015 and is widely anticipated.  The designers create some of the most innovative items for this event, so be prepared to be wow’d by not only this amazing Le Plateau Loft from KraftWork, but by all the other creations too!
