Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the Jungle

Featuring Meva and Lyrium

Welcome to the jungle, it gets worse here every day
You learn to live like an animal in the jungle where we play
If you got a hunger for what you see you’ll take it eventually
You can have anything you want but you better not take it from me!

Sunshine On My Shoulder

Sunshine On My Shoulder

Featuring Promagic and Fashiowl Poses

I started this picture the other day…the day before I found out my dad had passed away.  Of course Second Life was put to the back burner as I made travel arrangements, talked to family, etc.  If you read my blog, you know my dad had a stroke right before Christmas and just kept having complications that left his health slowly deteriorating so the news was at least not a complete shock, though is was just as devastating.  I may have also mentioned that I moved from Michigan to the southern US, Alabama actually, and have ZERO family here.  Its just me and my husband who has been my rock.

The sitting around and waiting is probably the worst thing so I pulled this photo back up and went to editing.  I thought a lot about my dad as I was editing, not really focusing, just letting my fingers work.  The photo is bright and cheerful, a bright spot in my mind….perhaps a message from my dad, who was also very creative, to do my best not to be sad.  Then my brother said the same thing to me…”Dad would not want us to be sad”….and he’s right.  Of course sadness is expected, and important actually, to grieve and let the pain escape and I have shed an enormous amount of tears….but later this afternoon, I will start my road trip to Kentucky and say my “until later” tomorrow….rain is forecast…but I am going to do my best to keep sunshine on my shoulder.  I love you daddy!

Furry Hitchhikers

Furry Hitchhikers

Featuring Fashiowl Poses

I’m an animal lover, you know, one of those who treats their pets like children.  I talk to my dog all the time and I think that makes them super smart.  My dog has a HUGE vocabulary.  It has been a while since I have had a cat due to my hubby being allergic and I don’t count the strays that were living under the porch since I was never able to get any where near them.

Being an animal lover is hard!  I can’t tell you how many times I tried to save mice and chipmunks from my cats because I love mice and chipmunks too…guinea pigs, ferrets…pretty much if it has fur, I’m a fan.

At one point in time I had two cats at the same time, Sammy and Falcor.  Sammy was a stray who had been caught in a trap (so of course I had to save and keep him) and Falcor was a solid white longhair.  Falcor was a hunter but wouldn’t eat his kill.  He would drop them at the door or if I didn’t notice he had it in his mouth he would dart in and drop it on the kitchen floor, be it bird, mouse or chipmunk.  I remember the time he made it in with a chipmunk without me noticing.  He then quickly dropped it, now that his mission of sneaking it in was successful….only it wasn’t dead and it took off down the hall with both cats and me in tow.  Ahh..good times!

That was over 26 years ago and there have been a few more feline and canine members of the family since then.  Pets…bundles of love wrapped in fur!

Friday night and the strip is hot

Sun’s gone down and they’re about to trot

Spirit’s high and legs look hot

Do you wanna get down?

Now, don’t you ask yourself

Who they are?

Like everybody else

They wanna be a star

Featuring Meva and Lyrium Poses

Taking it back to the 80’s a bit here when there was no such thing as DVD’s and blue ray.  I remember clearly going to the video store to pick out 2-3 tapes to watch with my friends and if you were looking for a new release you better hope you reserved it or you were going to find the shelf empty…and who can forget those late charges!!  Times have changed for sure!

My dress is by Meva and will be available at Vanity Event which opens on January 5th.  My pose is by Lyrium and it will be available at Pose Fair which also starts on the 5th.  See the credits for full information.

Fresh Flowers

Summer in Paris

“She sprouted love like flowers,
Grew a garden in her mind,
And even on the darkest days,
From her smile the sun still shined.”

Daydreaming

Daydreaming

I often wonder what everyone’s thought process is when they are about to take a photo.  Of course it’s about showcasing a sponsors product but it’s not only that.  Not for me at least.  I like to look at the picture and wonder what they are doing, thinking….Do they look like they are having fun, feeling terrible….these are the photos that capture my interest.  This photo was not the photo I went out to capture but as I was testing out poses, this is the one that jumped out and captured my attention.  She just looked so thoughtful, her mind somewhere a million miles away.  It just came together perfectly, the way a good photo does.  If I am having to work too hard at a photo, fussing with the pose and lighting, I have found it best to just move on and start with a fresh idea. Make sure to check out the credits below.  I love the shirt and it is the new group gift at Meva.  Be sure to go get yours!

Caged Bird

Caged Bird(2)

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
Of things unknown but longed for still
And his tune is heard on the distant hill for
The caged bird sings of freedom.
