A Simple Life

A Simple Life

I have lots of news to share. I've been very busy creating a new Deer River sim which will open this weekend but I took a little break to create this image. I've been a total slacker blogger of late, partly due to time constraints and partly due to a lack of mojo. My creative [...]

Feelin’ Girly

Feelin’ Girly

I'm not often what I'd describe as a girly girl. I've never been one for the colour pink and never gone for cutesy looks for my avatar or for my home decor but sometimes it's really fun to move a little outside of the comfort zone and try something different. It's even more of a [...]

Gather the Family

Gather the Family

I am going on vacation in a couple of months. Like most of us it will be the first vacation for a few years and we have decided to go back to a hotel that we visited for the first time 20 years ago when our children were small. It's a family run, small hotel [...]

But It Would be Nothing, Nothing, Without a Woman or a Girl

But It Would be Nothing, Nothing,  Without a Woman or a Girl

Happy Monday everyone! I had a photo taking weekend and managed to catch up on several items I wanted to blog. The creative headspace comes and goes for me and I've learned that whenever I push myself to create a photo or scene when I am not in that headspace, it results in a photo [...]

Keepin’ Out of Trouble

Keepin’ Out of Trouble

Mr Smith is away on a family trip at the moment and, I am not gonna lie, my second thought after "I'll miss him" was "I'm gonna get soooooooo much stuff done!" So, I was pretty surprised to find myself last night bored and de-motivated to do anything. I played some Greedy, I sorted my [...]

Cooking to the Beets

Cooking to the Beets

I'm back in the kitchen again this week with a beauty of a kitchen with so many options I'd go over my word count if I mentioned them all. As I'd taken a photo of a lighter rustic kitchen a week or so ago I wanted to use the darker option in this kitchen to [...]
