{ The Green Guys Are Coming! }

AlienInvasion_FINAL

Do you get hit by inspiration in the middle of ordinary everyday tasks?  Well I do, particularly in the shower.  (sorry if that’s TMI) Maybe it’s because that’s when I have the most time to just think uninterrupted.  And originally as much as I thought all the items at this latest round of The Garden event were super cute and creative (I mean, how can you not love laser blasters and green alien lawn decor?!) no ideas were immediate on how to blog ALL THE THINGS!  Then, one day, in the middle of rinsing my shampoo, this scene came to me.  It made me giggle to myself, and I do hope the irony isn’t completely lost on you, the audience.  Despite SL trying to keep me from completing my vision and crashing me upon every attempt to shoot this… I finally won.

Leave it to the kids to save the day, as the little green guys infiltrate this trailer park drive-in movie scene unbeknownst to Mom and Dad enjoying a little sci-fi movie of their own.  Sometimes those 3D movies seem so real, or are they??

The Garden ends September 10th, so you still have time to get over there and get your Area 51 goodies!

{ The Color Purple } More Love Donna Flora!

Although I was away from SL, Plurk and blogging for the past week and a half while family was in town visiting, I am glad I didn’t miss the chance to get back and blog some of these items I had picked up at the Love Donna Flora! Event in support of Squinternet Larnia.  The event is still going on until August 11th and some of the items are exclusive to this event so they won’t be sold in stores after that time.  So I do encourage you, if you haven’t been over to the sim… stop in to check it out!  I know what you’re thinking, do you reaaaaallly need more stuff?? (Yes of course you do, if I have to have an SL closet bursting at the seams, so do you!)  But seriously, even if you’re not interested in shopping the event itself, perhaps you’d consider just monetarily helping support a fellow SLer, designer/creator who, just like you, is a real person beyond the computer screen who is battling one of life’s biggest adversaries: cancer.  Every little contribution can help ease the financial burden she is facing in keeping her store afloat as well as trying to find alternative medicines in fighting this deadly disease. 

To read more about Squinternet’s journey and see the amazing support of the SL community rallying for her, read the Love Donna Flora! blog HERE.

I chose the color purple for this blogpost because 1. the monkey was purple and how could I not do a post including him and his cuteness and 2. the Love Donna Flora logo itself was purple and I felt that was somewhat symbolic.  Purple is a color often associated with royalty and really, when it comes to all things vintage in SL, Donna Flora IS the queen.  For those who are of a spiritual nature, the color purple is also synonymous with suffering and patient endurance.  Considering the scope of what Ms. Larnia is going through in her life, that too seems quite appropriate.  And lastly, it is also a color that signifies honor and victory and sacrifice (i.e. the Purple Heart).  May it also be true for Ms. Larnia that though this journey is full of sacrifice, I pray she comes out a winner in her own battle.  And I hope she feels the love and support of all of us cheering her on along the way.
