.. 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!

I always love finding new creators and creations in our virtual world.  This time I’ve been blessed to find that new creator amongst my friends.  Nodnol Jameson is not new to Second Life, but she is just now bringing her 3D creation skills to the grid.  With her new store, Kraftwork, she presents whimsical, unique, useful and cool creations for our homes.  Nod is very creative and fun-loving and this shows with the items that she has created.  With the help of her  partner, Oobleck (Allagash) the Kraftwork brand has been pre-marketed and received very favorably via social media and word of mouth.  If you are familiar with the couple, you might also remember that this is the team that brought us “West of the Rain“, a sim that I blogged a few months ago.



I finally had the opportunity to visit the new store last night.  First of all, the Kraftwork store makes me smile from the landing point through the build.  It is located inside a cardboard house in the sky – the same house that as a smaller model serves as the packaging for the goods sold in the store.  As you walk in and follow the arrows drawn on the cardboard, you pass cardboard flowers, trees, and even a car!  The actual store build is also Nod’s own design and is available for sale too – a concrete open space that works perfectly for this purpose.


Nod has put together a variety of items to start up Kraftwork including chairs, tables, a bed, wall decor, lights, etc.  It has an eclectic creative vibe and most anyone will find something that they love and will fit well in their virtual home.  The details on the pieces are well defined and you can see the care that Nod has taken to present a good product and design for her customers.  The textures fit the pieces wonderfully and there are color change options in several of the items too.  I liked all the animations too – good smooth fun single and couples options.


Awesome packaging and the CPH Arm Chair


Bajio Bed, Bajio Bench, Marfa Denim Chair, Shoreditch End Table, Marfa Mystery Lights


The Restless Rocker, CPH Arm Chair, Third Wheel Tables, Moo Day Bed, Texas Flag, and Marfa Denim Chair

Kraftwork officially opened to the public today.  I think you should all check out this new designer and store as soon as you can!  Nod plans to release new items every week or so.  And I have a feeling we are in store for some more amazingly fun, creative, useful and artistic items!


The ZED Chair – perfect for a bar stool!

blog 103115 an larPale amber sunlight falls across
The reddening October trees….
Are we not better and at home
In dreamful Autumn, we who deem
No harvest joy is worth a dream?
A little while and night shall come,
A little while, then, let us dream…
