Pet this

This set was inspired by Hayley.
Hayley loves animals
she knits blankets and toys for the animals shelters
to help make those animals' stay 
a little less lonesome while they wait
for their forever home.

Seriously cool.

Hayley has NEAD
(Non-Epileptic Attack Disorder)
a condition that can cause her to suffer from
up to 30 seizures a day. 
There is no cure at this time.
Her current wheelchair is a hand-me-down 
that is broken down, manual, and a poor fit. 
This fund is in hopes of procuring
a new wheelchair specifically designed for Hayley’s body and needs
as well as
a portable ramp so she may live as normal a life as possible. 

Please consider donating to help Hayley 
to help enjoy her life a little more.
The #CCforHayley tag has been created at Tumblr by Aminovas
to help gain attention for this campaign.
We've met our £2400 goal to release this pets set, but we have £2600 to go.

What? You want to know about this set? Okay . . . okay 
 
 When you own a pet, you accept that your pet has certain . . . tastes.
You don't understand it, but you take the good with the bad.
....
No more.
You, my friend, have a foot.
Put. It. Down.

Your pet has TERRIBLE taste. 
Plastic Bowls? 
Peh.
Faux Fleece? 
Shudder.

Today I have a set to help your pet 
to help themselves . . .
to be fabulous.
(jazz hands)
Pottery. How cultured.
Hand made with only the finest of wools. Stain resistant ... nautrally!
So retro! You can almost smell the irony.
You pet will be imbued with culture!
Each textile is guaranteed to be at least 45 years old. How many dog years is that!
Two sizes? Why that's just better than one!
In anticipation for this set, Aminovas
has been pulling together other pet related items.
She has greatly improved the impact of this set
with a couple of default replacements
Included (in the zip) in this set 
is the bag default replacement 
when your pet's bowl is being filled.
Choose one
(choose wisely grasshoppah!)

 This file also includes a default kibble replacment for game bowls
and 
the kibble that falls from the bag!!
No. More. Cornflakes. Yo.
Rock on!!

Aminovas has also made some tres cool pet related items -
like the Hayley's knit minion, a Marimo pet ... or what about this
 catnip knit mouse (modeled after the one Hayley makes!)
Oh Bernard! You don't get the effects of catnip! Or do you . . . .
Bernard? Do you hear sitar? Is the room spinning? Good boy!
 There is also the #PetsForHayley tag
where you can download (or upload your own) a new pet!
You can download my stray that stayed:  
An EA stray that was groomed to cuteness
Oh my god - he sits too? Wew! Doubleplus score!
We're at that time of year again
Season. Of. Giving.
Please consider donating to Hayley.
You don't have to be a meshing wizard
Just be you and people will respond.

The gift. Finally!
Please enjoy and
away
(both file formats, photos, and default bag [package format] from Aminovas included)

ALL THE DONATORS!

Surface Tension

It's the end of an era. TS3 is no more.
PFFT.
Riiiiggght. 
This IS the end ... table.
This is a celebration of an unsung hero.
Really, it's not that exciting.
It holds stuff.
You kind of ignore it.

But EA makes them big.
Real big.

Who has room for a 3 foot by 3 foot table in their home
that is also waist high?
No one.
That's who.

I bring to you,
the end table.
 Petite.
Holds little.
Impractical.
But stylish.
!!!

12 Styles
with some extras and even a bonus.
A bonus!
See how much I love you??
Star Crossed and Lens Flair each have a matching coffee table
Phloid's Leg has a matching coffee table
Schwing! Addition matched the Chess set chairs, so by request, they've become tables too!
Extra coffee, console and C table
(which is designed to pass through objects for cheat free placement)
They stack, yo!
This set was inspired by every time I do these promo shots.
Oh my ghad. 
Not one table from EA could sit next to a 'living chair' and 
NOT dwarf it. 
So sad.

That's not to say that every table will look good next to every chair.
That's why you have options, my friend.
Real.
Honest to goodness.
Options.

I know. You're welcome.

Take a look at these in action.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Some detail of the glass. Notice the way the edges refract.
If using for stills and you want a strong reflective surface, use the glass floors from ITF expansion
Have to admit this glass is pretty cool looking!
 I am happy with this set on a number of levels. 
The effects with the glass exceeded my expectations - wildly.
Hope you can find a table to enhance your game.

Please consider donating to assist in the cost of hosting.
This was an especially challenging year for both Heidi and I.
Heidi hosts my downloads on her site.
We both use the blogger interface, but we pay yearly for file hosting.
A small fee in the big picture, but still a huge challenge given the hurdles this year presented.
Thank you!

Doing the time warp . . . again

Hard to believe nearly four years has passed
A lot has changed and yet some things remain the same
Take art. Still love it. Still love creating it. 
It can so greatly influence the way a room comes together.
But in four years I have learned a lot more. 
And there have been some memorable sets in my catalogue
that have some cringe-worthy errors.
Time to fix them up.

Perhaps you are familiar with this scenario:
You're building and decide to change the image in CAS
when suddenly
"The current style is invalid"

Red. Alert.
 efff ewe little orange arrow. tschaaa .......
Fie.
Fie I say.

So it was time to say goodbye to some old favorites
and re-introduce them as 2.0
Yup - they are reborn
only better and bigger.
 
Bigger is better right?
Guys?

So.

Magick originally had 7 images, but 
it never felt complete
and the mesh had seriously too many polys.
Like four times the amount it needed.
Magick now has 13 images per set.
Two sets.
That's . . . like . . . twenty ... something images
Okay - swear - these are really different and the new one is much better. Pinkie swear!
 OH. And a new OPTIONAL FRAME.
Remember Noodie Cutie?
A whopping two images?
Peh!
Try 16.
Rebuilt, remapped, re-situated on the wall
AND
an optional frame for this one too
Just as filthy as you remembered.
Ain't no amount of soap gonna clean them eyes.
also ...
This particular mesh is a very handy dandy shape
that lends itself to so many images
so why not have two more sets?
Introducing Pulp
and Esoteric
And Factory Living?
Five images and only three of them useful.
It too has a new look ...
A completely new look
and a new optional frame 
But that's not all...
Remember X-Ray Specks?
Only Three box tops???
The complete etching set has been unearthed
and has been designated to a completely new (original, non-EA) mesh
that hopefully NOW
you'll be proud to own.
You made it painfully obvious that you were not having the original.
And finally ....
My very first set ever
has been redesigned the way it was intended to appear
on a larger (and finally original) mesh.
No longer assigned to a sad little EA mesh
This has been extended to 13 images
and only four years later,
I am honoring the promise of 
the female companion set:
So. Much. Academia.!!.
Here - you take a look at all this stuff while I grab a cup of coffee . . .
This wore me out!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh -
and some of you may have missed this
at my Tumblr site:
 
 
So, like -
This is a buttload of art.
Check it out!
