My Prized Possession

To most, this is just a piece of junk. Anyone looking through my utensil drawer would think I should have tossed it long ago.  Afterall, it's no longer functional. It just takes up space!  In my eyes it is beautiful. All of its imperfections are part of its story. Part of MY story. In 1984 I was moving into my very first apartment.  I was about to have my own kitchen.  I had nothing to put in it of course except for a set of dishes I purchased at a yard sale and some glasses Id collected from work lol. My mother took me to the store and bought me a set of pots & pans.  She also reached into her own utensil drawer and took out this very spatula.  It was one of her older ones.  Its handle already had several battle wounds from being against the side of a skillet a little too long as she used it to prepare meals for my dad and me. Over the years I have used it to prepare meals for my own family.  My children used it as they learned to cook.   I

Good Afternoon!
It's currently 4pm and 45 degrees in the great state of Alaska.
Today, my daughter Summer and I went to brunch over at the Roadside Inn.
Its one of my favorite local spots. It's kinda like Cheers. Everybody knows your name lol
I got the Cheeseburger & steak fries. She got the western omelet & hashbrowns.
We both had plenty of goodies left over for the dogs lol.
Afterwards, we took a scenic drive out to Talkeetna.
We saw moose, lots of melting snow, mud and a beautifully dynamic sky.
I had wanted to stop and get you some pics of the mountain range, but the parking area was way too icy for my taste. Maybe next time lol.

This evening, I wanted to share a promo I did last month via Sympatico Studio.
It features Moon for Genesis 8 Female by Marcius. She is a beautiful little thing with delicately pointed ears and unique shape. She also has a lovely skin texture and great makeup options.

Id also like to draw your attention to those awesome gloves that Moon is sporting.
Those are the Delicious Gloves with the Harmony texture set by the creative folks at SynfulMindz.
You get 6 sexy mats that will take your render to the next level. Swing on by there & check them out!


I had lots of fun working with both of these products and I know you will too!

Precious Moments Stolen

Almost a month to the day of my mothers' passing I had a dream. It wasn't the first time she had come to me in a dream, but to this point, I was the last. I was standing in the circle part of her driveway. There was a chill in the air. The grass was brown and there were no leaves on the trees. I was standing there...waiting. I was waiting for her to get there. The driver showed up, took her into the house and pulled away. rather than her wheelchair, he put her on the sofa where she used to sit and watch tv. He left the front door wide open. I could see her sitting in there by herself. She looked out at me and smiled. I said to myself, I'm going in until someone tells me I have to leave. She was alone. I curled up next to her on the couch, just like I did when I was little. She put her arm around me and held me like that for the longest time. It felt so good to curl up next to her like that again after all these years. After a while, she yawned. She looked do

Hey peeps, let's talk about promos, and what makes a good one! Well, it really depends on what the product is. For example, if you wanted to promo a town or forest. You want to show as much of it as you can without it being obvious. Perfect example by Anita. The figure is just a part of the scene. It doesn't dominate it. It's clear that what we are selling here is the environment, not model. What about this one? It's a cool piece, but what am I selling here? Am I selling the architecture, the ship behind her, or the girl up front? WTF knows? I didn't utilize my camera properly! The model should be off to the side, and my focal point should have been on that ship back there. And this one!   There is entirely too much going on here. Your eyes go all over the place when they SHOULD be focused on that model. I know.  We have lots of toys we want to play with But when it comes to promos, LESS IS MORE! Here
