New Years Resolution

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

New Years Resolution, originally uploaded by Isla Gealach.

So I'm a bit early posting this up but around here New Years is a huge holiday. Bigger than Christmas. And I plan to not be around much this next week spending time in RL with the family. :))

I've made a New Year's Resolution for my store. I'm not using pre-made sculpt packs for my furniture anymore. All couches, benches (haha), beds, tables, etc will all be made by me. I have been doing this for the past 6 months but I wanted to make it official. All things that were made from sculpt packs have been removed from the main store.

(I just want to clarify I will still use SOME sculpts that I purchase full perm such as flowers - all flowers I use are made by the super talented Logan Bauer, which I cannot for the LIFE of me sculpt LOL) But ALL pieces of furniture will be made 100% by me. :)

For now I have placed all of my discontinued items that are not sculpted by myself into a skydome in the sky. There is a TP board at the front of my mainstore. I've discounted everything to 50l-100l. However this won't be around for long!! I will probably remove it in a couple months to give anyone enough time to grab things they liked. The bubble is at The Pea (228,201,801).

I want to clarify that in no way so I think that sculpt packs are bad. They got me through 2 years before learning to sculpt. I think they are a wonderful tool in the path to learning to be a creator. Without them I wouldn't be where I am today. I just feel this is the next exciting step on my creative journey and am really looking forward to challenging myself.

Heather Vintage Bedroom...

Heather Vintage Bedroom Announcement

Heather Vintage Bedroom Ad

Heather Bedroom

All the choices for the bed. The wardrobe cloth is also texture change, as is the rug.

This bed was inspired by a friend of mine, TrinityBelle Merriman. She asked me to make a wrought iron bed because she has always wanted one in SL. I love the idea of wrought iron but I wanted something simple - something inspired by the 20's and 30's. I didn't want something overly complicated or fussy. So the Heather Vintage bedroom was born.

There are a number of extra features with this bed. There is a set menu for couple sleeping poses with very sweet couple sleeping animations. The couples menu also offers a rezzable breakfast tray for breakfast in bed. There are laptop poses for those that like to play online in bed. Also several reading poses for bookworms, of course as well as the laptop with self-rezzing props. (No click to hold and messing with inventory!)

The bed comes in PG (regular) and Adult versions. The Adult bed consists of a full 2 extra menus with 20 carefully chosen poses.

This weekend a great idea that formed between myself and Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie has finally come to a culmination... the Designer Challenge has started~!!! I'm so excited about this idea we've had. It's a FUN project for us. The premise is as follows - 

Every 2 weeks 2 Home and Garden designers will take the same RL picture as inspiration and create what they see in Second Life in their own way. 

We are not dropping prices. This is about us,  the creators, having fun with other creators and inspiring each other to whole new levels of creativity and creating new bonds with our colleagues while enjoying ourselves and bringing YOU, the customer... a great item!

Follow our blog on www.designerchallengesl.blogspot.com or else join us on Flickr! http://www.flickr.com/groups/designerchallenge/

From the picture taken by both of us I've come up with this - the Old Saybrook Daybed set.

Coming soon. :), originally uploaded by Isla Gealach.

Welcome to Designers Challenge, in which every 2 weeks 2 home and garden designers will take the same rl picture as inspiration and create what they see in Second Life in their own way.

There are only 2 rules:

1. The 2 designers want to do this with each other and agree on the rl pic.

2. They both use the media available to them to create some publicity.

That's it!

We wish you all a lot of fun!

Coquina Beach Shack

Coquina Beach Shack, originally uploaded by Isla Gealach.

For Super Bargain Saturday this weekend!

Coquina Beach shack is all about fun in the sun. A bit old, a bit beaten up, but still standing. It includes a little toy boat someone stuffed candles in to keep them upright and a few hooks on the beams to keep some assorted stuff you need on the beach like a net, a few jars for catching lightening bugs at night, and a bit of rope for... who knows what. :D

This is mod, however if you unlink the prims on the shack the texture menu WILL NOT WORK. It's copy, so you can always rez another, but be warned if you unlink stuff, the texture menu is going to start changing all sorts of prim faces.

The candles and hooks are not linked to the shack so you need to rez in edit mode. Then if you don't want to use them you don't have to. :)

The shack is 29 prims, the hooks and stuff hanging from then are 16 prims, and the candle boat is 10 prims.

All are mod.copy.notrans. (scripts inside are no mod)

Laura's Bench

Laura's Bench, originally uploaded by Isla Gealach.

For Project Themeory this weekend. the theme is "Our Story". Every house has a piece of furniture that has been painted and repainted, stenciled, glued, piled with shoes and books, and you still sit on it staring out the window. In our house it's a bench. Which is probably where my SL love for benches - purchasing and making them, comes from.

So I'm sharing with from My story, a bench. :) Hope you enjoy.

It comes with everything in the picture. 75l for this weekend then it will be available at normal price.

<3 Isla

P.S. Just a quick note to say.... You may notice I love to use flowers and plants in a lot of my builds. ALL of the flowers/plants I use are from Arctic Greenhouse by Logan Bauer. If you haven't had a chance to get there do, his creations are amazing and you should definitely have a look!

Charity Event Participation

Monday, April 25, 2011

I've decided to stop taking part in charity events in SL.

The reasons are many, but mostly because I don't enjoy the charity event "culture" that SL has been inundated with, the millions of charity events with no accountability. I have learned the hard way not to trust that not all people do as they say they will.

This isn't me be scroogey or mean. I will continue to give as I always have done - through RL channels. I encourage you to do the same. That's not to say you can't shop at your favourite store participating in a charity event or with a charity aspect, of course if you can see the clear accountability for the money please do! I'm not saying that everyone that organises these is in the wrong, I just do not have the time, energy, or enthusiasm to research every single event I'm invited to, or to track up the records and accounts of those participating. I applaud those organisers and designers who put so much in to the events and have clear accounting practices.

I will honour the current commitments I have made, but past that... blanket ban for me. I will drop my coins in the SSPCA bucket, give to Oxfam, and participate in Red Nose Day... in RL. Charity starts on your doorstep, and that is where I'm going to focus.
