.. beginning to look a lot like Christmas ..

The SL Christmas Expo opens tomorrow – December 1, 2016 and runs until December 12th.  This Annual event benefits Relay For Life of Second Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.


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.

Life may not be the party we hoped for,
but while we’re here we should dance.
