Merry Xmas

So, we sent out our xmas-cards the last day(s) with the cute little pressies in it.... As it showed the "open me!" mouse, when you hovered over it, we assumed, that our friends will know what to do (O-tone me: "Oh, our friends are no noobs. They will know!").... ha! We had to tell 3/4 of our friends: "Open it! Copy into inventory! Follow the instructions!"
Inside they'd find our little snowglobe. Took me a while to build it so little, as SL is restricted in the minimum size. But I think, it's quite cute:


"Touché" - that's the name of the new gallery in our store. As mentioned before: We're doing some rebuilding at the store. So we moved the gallery with the (mostly Gorean themed) paintings up into a skybox. The building was quickly done... a bit Art Deco.... I know, I could do better with more time and more prims, but I did a lot with sculpts to save prims. And for 23 prims or so it's not a bad building at all, I think.
Sooooo, we thought about a name and finally agreed to "Touché" as it means as well "brush stroke" (in painting) as also "Touched", used in sword-fighting, when someone landed a hit on the opponent (you know... Goreans and their swords - duh!), but also means like "Good arguement!" in a debate as well as a kind of "counterattack"- as I like to see it as counter to some greedy guts...
For now it's mostly Gorean-themed paintings, but sooner or later I'll add some others too, especially in the second floor (which for the moment is mostly empty)
I also started to experiment with animated pictures. The dancing Santa and his reindeer, the bouncing cat and the buttnaked Santa are some of the first results. We offer them as freebies (copy, but no trans), so if you want them, come to the shop and buy them for zero! And tell your friends about it!
Next thing will be a reconstruction of the shop itself on the ground. Still lots of work upcoming....

Room with a view

I just like the view from my office-window... especially at twilight... especially when it just snowed... especially when I don't have to drive to work and got a surprising day off, because of the snow!

Winter Hut

Yeah, finally I got my snowy log-cabin ready for the MP. Friends will think it kinda looks familiar, when they open their xmas-pressies... *winks*

the season

The Xmas-season started and we started decorating our house last weekend.

Afterwards Santa and his sexy lil helpers went to our traditional Tabor OOC dance:

After a weekend full of RL-work, work, work I'm always enjoying the sunday evenings, looking forward to two days off.

I started to make animated pictures and offered this one for free at the dance. If you missed it, don't worry! - We're working on a rebuild of our shop with an extra gallery for the paintings. Next to selling paintings we will offer some freebies too.
