.. a bit of drama ..

blog-011917-kraftwork-c

Kraftwork has created this beautiful Victorian Theater for The Draftsman event that opens tomorrow (January 20th) and runs until March 17.  The event is a bi-monthly event focused on architecture and home decor.  The theme for this round is Victorian and Kraftwork’s Theater definitely fits the bill.

The detail of the structure and curtain is perfect and the backdrops fit the era so well.  The stage is loaded with multiple poses – puppet and drama style.  The 3 puppet poses allow for a maximum of 3 avatars and are adjustable so that the puppet strings can be aligned.  The 5 drama poses are unique and will allow a maximum of two avatars at once. These were created by Misty of Kiss Me Pose specifically for the Victorian Theater.

This is a beautiful piece for pose prop and pics, but could also be fit into a themed or eclectic build.

Be sure to check Kraftwork out at this month’s round of The Draftsman.

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.

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!

(remembering Leonard Cohen)

.. wanna keep on loving you ..

Because it was us baby way before them
& we’re still together
& I meant every word I said
When I said that I love you I meant that I love you forever

& I’m gonna keep on loving you
Because it’s the only thing I wanna do
I don’t wanna sleep
I just wanna keep on loving you
