So, I suppose I owe you all an update.

It's not a really big secret that my business doesn't do fabulously. Some of this is my fault, but some of it is that I'm not terribly lucky. I'm about ready to throw in the towel, but I'm going to try giving things six more months. I'm working on some things now -- landscaping things, jewelry stuff, eye stuff, and possibly another project -- and will shut the sim down for a few days in mid-December; when I reopen, all the new stuff will be out, and I plan to get back on a weekly release schedule after that.

Jewelry Expo raised US$256.81 total for Heifer International. (The total is so much lower than last year's mostly because sim rental is expensive. The auctioned jewelry didn't pull in quite as much, either.)

When donating, I rounded up to an even US$260. This bought us a water buffalo and a share of a rabbit trio, though I'm not sure that the money isn't just dumped into one big slush fund.

Still working on the trees. I don't know if I'll ever finish them. I keep thinking that if I were just more clever, I'd be able to come up with trees that look better than a bunch of flat alpha planes, use fewer prims, and aren't overly full of polygons. There's always something that trips me up, though (right now it's the horrendous alpha sorting of sculpted prims), so I keep floating ideas and shooting them down...

I'm also toying with the idea of switching over to a system whereby all my jewelry (and hair, maybe) is color change. You'd buy one piece and get all the colors of it, effectively. I'd have to raise my prices, though. Thoughts?

TP now!

Come enjoy dozens of jewelers in one of SL's lowest lag fashion expos. We have merchants you've heard of and merchants you haven't, so drop by and discover someone new. You won't even have to move around on a box to do it.

When you're done browsing, try your hand at our treasure hunt. We've got a dozen free, aquatic themed items scattered around the sim, some in places that are easy to find, and others that... aren't. Or do some good with our charity auction. Several truly beautiful sets are up for grabs all week, with the proceeds going to Heifer International.

Visit Jewelry Exposition 131, 129, and come see what made last year's fair such a success.

All these product images at Jewelry Expo are making me realize just how blah my own are.

Ah, well. Back to checking booths and bitching.
