Hi!

aPPLAUSE

Hello! Long time no see!

No special reason for this image choice other than I was going through photos I’ve already used in this blog and thought this one was pretty, odd, and cute… a few of my favorite things 🙂

I’m back in SL. Been logged out/locked out (ooops) for a while. Sorry about it anyone who wanted/needed me.

Life is so funny. Sometimes things just BAM! Change! Well, that’s what happened to me after a move to live up North for the first time ever. About that, let me just tell you I now know for sure that I’m definitely a Southern Girl and I miss the South.

But anyway, I got pulled away from SL b/c of life, you know. We all do from time to time. More and more I realize how many other SL inhabitants go missing for long periods of time then come back. The open arms, the encouragement, the welcome backs are nice and loving! It feels good to be back. And it’s almost Winter now… simply a great time to snuggle up with the warm glow of SL while decked out in warm clothes with a cup of tea beside me.

I’ve always found it difficult to manage all that I want to do in SL and struggled with having enough time. As a friend said to me recently, she feels like time is flowing through her fingers. I know exactly what she means. That is often my experience too. So, this time in… I’m thinkin’ it through. This is what’s on my mind as I enter SL again, drawn for an 8th year into it’s loving embrace, as a content creator:

1) Devote time to exploring SL and staying connected to it and its inhabitants. Remember to have fun. Work a lot but not all the time.
2) Define work hours. Define play hours.
3) Define when and when not available to speak with customers.
4) Focus on quality, fun, and usability of products.
5) Keep it simple.
6) Spend time loading more old products on Marketplace. People still like them! (wow Thank You)
7) Spend time blogging.
8) Spend time Flickring.
9) Use profile feed and any other free method of getting the product and messages out there.
10) Define services, times available for it, and prices.
11) Stay positive.
12) Set boundaries.

Lazy Sunday’s 200th Event

Hello! My item for Lazy Sunday’s special 200th event, is an applier for Slink’s Visage mesh head. It includes the whole skin so even if you don’t have the Slink Visage yet, you’re getting something awesome you can use for only L$75! But I highly recommend the Slink Visage mesh head, it’s very cute, lovely and includes lots of fun expressions, closed eyes, and more. Later I’ll release a full applier version with eyebrow and makeup options. This is only a special price thru Sunday March 16 and only at my main store location, MIA14.

MIA14 SNEAK PEAK SPECIAL FOR LAZY SUNDAY POSTER

 

I’d like to also point out that if you buy the Slink Visage and like the skin that already comes on it… and say you want to use it just like it is, then it is good to know that MIA14 Ember Skin Healthy Glow actually matches the tone pretty well. This pic over at Flickr shows what I mean.

Theme Park Rock n Roll

Today an event opened called The Theme Park. This month’s theme is rock n roll! I have made 3 special items which are only available at the event now, and will be in-store (at MIA14) afterwards. The event runs for 3 weeks.

MIA14 Stardust Makeup Poster

 

Stardust makeup is based on Ziggy Stardust (David Bowie). It has to wrap around the avatar mesh so the lines get a little wobbly (as you can see in the photo) but that’s just the way it is and overall i think it still looks pretty awesome. Demo is available so you can see how it wraps on your avie.

MIA14 Leo Shirts Main Poster

 

Sexy Leo shirts come in 6 colors and include Lolas and Azz appliers, but may be worn without. Sculpted sleeve cuffs fit nicely over SLink wrists.

MIA14 ONLY MAKEUP POSTER

 

Only makeup, lashes, and death lock are based on the one and only, Jerry Only from Misfits! ❤ As you can see in the Leo shirt photo, you can wear the death lock with your fave hair (or alone).

MIA14 Group Gift!

Happy Valentines Day! I love youuuuu.

Just Tryin to Get My Items in Your Inventory

Snapshot_047

 

Hello. I’m just tryin to get my items in your inventory, because I think once you try what I make – you’ll love it. Then your friends will ask, “Where did you get that?” And you’ll say, “MIA14! It’s the new store by MiaSnow…. remember her old store MIASNOW? Well, she’s back in SL and creating again. Plus, you can still get the old thingys on the Marketplace!” And your friend will come to MIA14 and check out my hard works, spend a little skrilla, and the cycle will continue on and on and on 🙂 I’m not aiming to be a Lindenaire, you see… that’s why I make some things free. But the more L’s I can make, the more you get in return from me 🙂 Have I told you lately that I love you? I do. I love you ❤ !

So, how can I get my items in your inventory? Thanks for asking. I just updated my vendor at The Wash, FabFree Headquarters! “FabFree?” you may ask. YES! F-A-B-F-U-K-I-N FREE! While you’re there, join the FabFree group for all kinds of notices for L$0-L$10 items all over the grid.
