The absolute best thing about having your own sim is there is always somewhere to go take pictures. I am loving seeing all the photos people have been creating at Deer River and when I wanted a backdrop for this photo I immediately thought of the landing point area for Deer River. I was going [...]

Drop Outs

I'm totally the bad sister in this relationship and Sady, believe it or not, is the good sister! Actually pulling together this collaboration made me giggle. I used to work with someone that whenever you asked them if they had done something they would say 'I was just about to'...without fail that would be their [...]

I'm sure I'm not the only one that has nicknames for neighbours, or people you need to refer to, to other people but you don't know their names? Many years ago I used to work for a publishing house and one of the ladies we would see every day walking through the office was nicknamed [...]

Photoshop introduced the sky replacement tool a little while back but recently I've been using another plug in for Photoshop called Luminar AI...I have to say I love it!

We all have words we love and words we dislike and there is often a concensus on the latter. Take 'moist' for example. I know a few people who literally have a physical disgust response to that word. I love words that sound like what they mean. I got thinking about this when I wrote [...]

Work Time Corner

Work Time Corner

I'd long had an idea of making an outdoor work area at home but have never gotten around to doing it. We all have our habits and routines and I find that when I am working in SL, and it requires periods of time in lots of programmes and flipping back to SL occasionally to [...]

My parental unit visited twice last week...for the first time in nearly 2 years due to lockdowns etc. To say it was stressful was an understatement. My father and I are chalk and cheese on almost every issue known to man. My lip is sore from biting it because I didn't want 3 whole days [...]
