Yesterday was a busy day for me.

It was 21 Shoe so, you know – SHOES!!!

I’ve been busily trying to blog, photograph, and organize items I’ve collected over the past several weeks.

I’m making progress, but not there yet.

My schedule tends to be kind of fluid lately, so I’m hoping I can make it to the Velvet Vixens show tonight at 6pm. 😀

I came across a great tutorial from Alicia Chenaux about making a smile shape – editing your shape so that when you smile (using a classic/system avatar), you don’t look like a complete dorknoid.

I’m kinda mad at myself for not thinking of this – but she does a great job of explaining how it works.

So yay!  I can try my hand at pics where I actually have an expression on my face. 😛

Bright Canopy (the group that may be an alternative to SL Go), has a blog and is currently running a photo contest.

It sounds like the service may be up and running much quicker than many people (including me) expected.

So yay again!

I’m still debating over changing up the theme of the blog (I hate change :/), so if things look a little different, don’t panic. 😀

Happy Hump Day, y’all!!

It’s Wednesday?

This week has been all screwy for me.

My husband has been working crazy hours thanks to a recent storm – he got home early this morning after a 22 hour shift.

Yikes!

So while he sleeps, I blog. 🙂

And we’re supposed to get another humdinger of a storm today – lots of hail, wind, and possibly tornadoes.

Gotta love spring!

I spent most of yesterday attending a Creative Live class about using eCommerce solutions with WordPress.

I had worked with some of the add-ons for a client previously, but at the time, I was overwhelmed by it all.

After watching the class, I was struck by one thought – what the heck was I afraid of?

It’s not rocket science, after all. 😛

I am planning to use some of what I learned as I work to get my book published and available online.

So thanks Nai, for turning me onto Creative Live!

I also had a chance on Monday to try out the new mesh heads by Lelutka.

I’m torn.

On one hand, I am not a fan of mesh heads, because I think they make everyone look too similar.

Plus, they almost all seem to have turned-down, pouty lips.

Is a neutral mouth so much to ask?

On the other hand, I did like the Lelutka heads better than many I’ve seen, though I confess that the 3 different heads look almost exactly the same to me.

I love that the heads made the neck seam disappear when wearing my mesh body.

However, I just don’t see myself wearing a mesh head every day.

And with the steep price ($2500L), it isn’t worth the investment to me if I only wear it occasionally.

I must say, though, I am absolutely loving the mesh body I have.

I’ve been using it for a lot of the LOTD photos and it has reduced considerably the amount of time I spend fiddling with the pics in Photoshop.

No weird pointy bits that I need to smooth out anymore!

I have a ton of things to get done today, so I’m off to get busy.

I am debating wrapping my cars with bubble wrap to try and protect them from the giant hail they keep saying we’re going to get this afternoon. 😦

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

I was searching through my archives today, looking for something, and I suddenly realized – my blog is now a year old!!

My first post was born on March 21, 2014.

A fitting birthday, the first day of Spring. 🙂

It’s a few days late, but better late than never, right?

So, happy birthday to my little blog.

Hopefully there are many more birthdays to come!

I am still busily working on articles and projects and pictures, so stick around and see what happens next.
