Yay! I finally was able to get to do more hunting tonight! (I did have to break my own rule, however–my inventory is not yet perfectly organized. It probably will never be.)
I knocked out the first hunt of April on my list–aptly named The April Hunt, sponsored by Nefeli’s Gestures. There are 20 stops in all and the prize pics can be found on the website (which I think is cool because I headdesk repeatedly when I hunt for something for an hour only to find that I can’t use the prize). If you’re looking to add another touch of spring (even when the real life weather outside isn’t cooperating), spend a few hours on the hunt trail. You’ll find some cute stuff. 🙂
It’s an April Invasion! Squirrels, bucks, birds, and fairies are all overrunning my little Alpine Meadow yard! What’s a girl to do??? (Maybe they can magically clean my inventory–or at least blink up some new shoes!)
The dress is a hunt prize from Kat’s Clothing Boutique. The shoes–I cheated–they’re the Bollywood slippers from the SL default library, slightly tinted. The fairy log display is Dreamscape Wedding Design‘s hunt gift (cute, huh??). And, as for the critters at the fenceline–I picked this one up from Simply Shelby as part of the 35L Sunday this week–better hurry if you want one at that price!
That’s all from me for now–photos of the lovelies from this spring’s Twisted Hunt coming shortly. The theme this spring was AWESOME–Atlantis!!!!–and I’m still gleeful over my first survivor tag and trophy. 😀
I managed to “swarm” the hunts in February and March–gleefully earned my survivor tag for the Twisted Hunt’s 10th anniversary spring event (photos to come, hopefully)!
Needless to say, my inventory runneth over. I’ve been focusing on organizing before setting up any photo shoots. But today, I took a bit of time to look out of my little cabin at the spring countryside around the CDS sims. Is it any wonder I love calling this place home???
I took a break from trying to hit the final 80 or so stops for this year’s Peace on Earth hunt (really–the thing was MASSIVE this year!!!) and dropped in to the Caledon Oxbridge University’s New Year’s Eve bash.
Hosted by Miss Andrea Jones with music by DJ Kate, the dance was in a gorgeous venue–a giant winter pavilion in the shadow of Caledon’s flying city. I managed to snap a few photos, but alas, none of the huge fireworks display did them justice.
Probably no way to complete everything and get pics, so I think I’ll pick out my faves and photo those–after I invest in a new photo studio (oh sheesh, more shopping–I think I’m going to have to invest in some comfy shoes while I’m at it!).
Of course, I can’t blame it all on Yahoo. I’ve been AWOL from posting for long enough, I’d forgotten my password to my Flickr account.
Tried to log in yesterday and NOPE!–No Flickr for you! So I try to request a new password–“we can’t seem to find this email”. Ooooohkaaaay. Tried several more potential passwords. Newp. Nada. Sigh and try to sign up for a new account–“This email is already connected to an account.” ARRRRGH! (Dear Yahoo, if you really hate my virtual photography, just tell me–you don’t have to prep me for a rubber room!)
After several moments of glaring menacingly at the screen, I finally used an alternate email to sign up for a spanking new Flickr account–and felt rather smug about dumping all of my old virtual fashion photos that I could lay hands on into the uploader. Take THAT! (Unfortunately, now they’re not organized but give me the small victory, eh?)
The new photostream is here — as I find more of the old stuff, I’ll add it, plus the new stuff.
I finally got back involved in SL a few weeks ago, just in time to see the CDS display for the SL Big Birthday Bash. It was fun because I actually got to participate! They’d asked for pictures of the residents to make life-sized (avatar life-sized, that is) cutouts to make the display look like it was not only inhabited but rockin’ up in those Alpine villages! 😀
I was really honored that they used both of mine–one in a lederhosen minidress, complete with steins and pretzels and one with a full carnivale get-up. I had a blast taking the photos and was proud to have been included.

I haven’t taken the time to do much more inworld photography for a long time. I did just finish two hunts–the Hard Catch hunt and the Little Shop of Horrors hunt. I was just about to go head-first into the Lovefest hunt (last day is today!) but decided to stop for a few moments and write. (Since I finally remembered my blog password! Am I a bad bloggess or what???)
Muah dahlinks ’til next time (which I hope won’t be too long)!
Popped into SL long enough to pay my rent on my gorgeous mountain retreat and noticed that there have been some improvements on my street. The big block of apartments across the street have been replaced by these charming townhouses. One of the great things about SL–neighborhood improvements without the dust, debris, and noise!
