I love the sea’s sounds and the way it reflects the sky. 
The colours that shimmer across its surface are unbelievable.
This, combined with the colour of the water over white sand,
surprises me every time. ~ John Dyer

Now I’m ready to start
I would rather be wrong
Than live in the shadows of your song
My mind is open wide
And now I’m ready to start

Now I’m ready to start
My mind is open wide
And now I’m ready to start
You’re not sure
You open the door
And step out into the dark

Now I’m ready

Happy New Year!

2013 seemed to fly by for me in some aspects and creep along in others.  It was a tremendously busy year that had a very difficult start and remained to be a bit like a roller coaster. I experienced lots of laughter with friends and cheered them on during beautiful life events.  And other times, I felt like my heart was split open and all the happiness was draining out.  I worked tirelessly with a dedicated team of people to bring the 2013 Relay For Life of Second Life event to the virtual world successfully.  I met new people and developed close relationships; said goodbye to a few;  and sadly lost contact with a couple of others.  I fought to keep the happiness within me and managed to survive emotionally to end the year. 

2014 is here… and I have hope in my heart that it will be a better year.  My goal is to have more happy days than sad; more laughter than tears; and to hold on tightly to the friends I cherish.  I am also hopeful that those friends that seemed to disappear once again resurface and that I have the opportunity to know them once again.

And for all of us, I hope that 2014 will bring love, success, happiness, laughter, and that special wishes will be blessed.  

Hugs ❤

.. sneaking a peek in the workshop ..

Blog 113013 Arcade 2 a

Every child that celebrates Santa’s visit always wants to take a peek into his workshop, right?  To see the magical place where all the toys are put together and bagged up to be delivered on Christmas Eve to all the good little (and big) boys and girls.  It’s tradition… and it has provided many fun film bits over the years too.  We watch those movies about the holidays and about the North Pole just waiting to see just where Santa works.  For the December round of The Arcade Gacha Event, Scarlet Chandrayaan of Alouette has created Santa’s Workshop.  You will have to play for all the stuffs with the house and the fireplace shelf unit as rares, everything is just adorable.  The chair offers assorted animations including Santa lap sits!  On the mantle, I have hung the cute monogrammed stockings that Emery Milneaux of Commoner created for this event.  In addition, I had fun playing with the Frostivus skating diorama from Sienia Trevellion of Lark.  This cute display has multiple skating animal characters that skate around on the ice.  While there is a skating base free for all, the Christmas option seen here is a rare prize.  The cute penguin putting the star on the tree is from Aime Takaaki for MishMash.  Her little animals are awesome and in the Gacha machine, you can also try for an adorable penguin avatar!  Zen Zarco for BoOgErS brings some all-time favorite toys to the gacha machines with a beaming red firetruck and a number train only two of the prize options.  Katharine McGinnis of Intrigue Co. offers her very popular Plushie Pals this round with the little owl and his forest friends.  While Hyasynth Tiramisu of SilentSparrow has created cute Elemen-Tails – stuffed animals that you can hold or display such as the Smoke colored Fire Foxy here.

Along with all the gifty goodies, we have some awesome items from Marisa Kira from D!va bringing us the beautiful Daisy hair.  The version with the long side pony tails, Type B, is the rare version…and it is worth playing the gacha many times to get the favored prize!  The awesome coat that I am wearing is from Kelly Iwish of Elate!  You can play for several colors including some lovely two-tone versions.  I am also wearing the Blair skin in peach tone from Nina Helix of Birdy Skins.  Each prize comes with appliers for Slink hands and feet and different brow colors too!  And those cute heels on my toes are from Betty Doyle of Ingenue – the Noella Heels in Pond.  And to top…er, tip.. it all off, the nail appliers are from Lynaja Bade for KOSH which are offered in cute holiday and other patterns for both fingers and toes!
