Holiday Skins...

Ok, so I figured I'd keep the freebie Holiday Skins up until Jan 1st. Not sure what time I'll delete them from the shop, but sometime on the 1st when I'm recovered from tonight!

Onto group news! If you'd like to continue to receive Nyte'N'Day related news please join the group named "Nyte'N'Day Updates". The Couture Isle Update Group is closing tomorrow. Since the sim that houses Nyte'N'Day is no longer Couture Isle, it just doesn't make sense to keep the group name.

Lastly! Have a happy and safe New Year everyone!

Merry Christmas!!

WOOT! It just officially turned Christmas here! :) Merry Christmas everyone! Hope it's a good one!

Ooooh! Before I go, gotta tell this story!

So here I am, self-banished to a room wrapping presents and I hear sirens. Whatever time passes, still wrapping (doing a lousy job too), still hear the sirens. I think "Wow what an asshole...whoever that is they're chasing. It's Christmas!". 5 mins later STILL sirens.

Ok. Time to investigate. So me, sister, sisters boy go outside to check what's happenin. JUST in time to see a firetruck...decorated with Christmas lights ALL over it, BLASTING Christmas music. Santa and Ms. Claus were on the top, spotlight on em, waving to everyone! Then, after that, cop car with all his lights & siren on! Then cop van, all his lights on, siren!

It was really neat! I'm sure all the kids in my town thought it was the THE coolest thing they'd ever seen.

It was a nice thing the cops/firefighters/ambulance people did. It made us all smile. It's heartwarming that a group that already does *so* much for society as a whole did this too.

Holidays... sorta.

Hi Guys! :)

Just wanted to leave a quick note that I'll be mostly offline until the 1st. I will still be able to login sporadically to answer IMs. Please be aware responses will be much slower then normal.

I'll also be taking the freebie "Holiday Skins" offline sometime on the 26th. Make sure to stop by and grab em if you want em!

Also a cute poster I made for the store recently...

Hope you're all having a great holiday season so far! :)

Bit of a rant...

Is it just me... or do people seem extra uptight lately? Just in the last week or so. I mean, people just bitching because they can, or being rude where it's just totally not necessary, impatient...etc. Now don't take my words wrong, the vast majority of you are great to deal with! :) However, the crankypants seem to REALLY be coming out lately. Even some of the customer service reps *waves at you guys* have been noticing a spike in general spazzyness. If we're experiencing this - others must be!

So here's my official public notice to the angries:

Be nice to us designers. We're not evil. We never have set out to "get you". We don't purposely do things to make you mad. Quite the opposite in fact! I always try to keep the consumer in mind. Always. I think the majority of larger SL retailers do. Things we do or don't do, generally are chosen by what we THINK will make the majority happiest as possible. Anyway I kinda went off on a tangent there. The bottom line is: when you're dealing with people please just try to be respectful. It's a stressful time of year, so while I understand being grouchy, it's just really not needed.

THAT being said. Lemme address something:

I know no transfer sucks in gift giving times! Really, I KNOW...I've heard, LOTS! lol. However, I've tried to make it as easy as possible, within SL's limits, to still give gifts. There are gift card vendors located through-out my in world shop. Gift cards are transferable.

However if you'd like specific items sent to an avatar, you can shop through SLX or On Rez. The majority of the older items on those sites are still transferable. Oh, and they come in pretty gift bags!

So those are the options for gifts. No, I will not budge on the permissions of my items. Those that still insist on asking - you will get the same spiel. :) For the reason's why Nyte'N'Day is no transfer please refer to this blog post.

Ok I'm done! Whew.

New clothes, new store, new sim!

Ok! Lots to talk about...

There's a bunch of new stuff out at Nyte'N'Day! Three separate sweaters in tons of colors, 4 longer skirts, and cargo's. And not 100% new, but a little bit, sculpted pant legs for jeans! YAYYY! SO many people have asked for these. I admit, I put it off because the texture work was tedious. The good news is, I'm also selling the pant legs separately from the jeans for those that already own jeans. You might have to take the flare of your original jeans in from appearance mode however.

New store! New sim called "Nyte N Day"! Teleporting to the old store will land you right outside the new, so don't worry! :) I know the shop is a nice little lag machine. My hopes are that with a bigger store and faster sim some of these problems will be eased. The new store takes less then half the prims! Woot!

What else? Hm. Oh! I put the holiday skins out again for $1L. They come in a bunch of skin tones and have two festive makeups!

That's it for now I think!

Ok, fine! :P

*Shakes fist at Tigerlily and Chica for tagging me* ;)

(1) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
(2) People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
(3) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
(4) Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Here goes, now we'll all know just how geeky I am:

1. Ever since I was a kid I've had a fascination with "little worlds/things". For example - I really like aquariums because when done right it is a little world. A mini-ecosystem. I've been like that forever - loved Barbie, loved miniatures...etc. Haha my childhood "dream" was to have a miniature town similar to the one like in the movie Beetlejuice. So it makes sense that I like SL so much! :)

2. I really enjoy drinking socially and I'm not so sure I'll ever grow outta it. Heck, I'm 26 and still love the bar scene. BUT I get the worst hangovers known to man. Seriously. Day after going out to the bars, I'm LUCKY if I can get out of bed to do anything but vomit before 5pm. EEEEEEW. Most times the night was so good, it was worth it though!

3. I'm a loner with only a handful of people I'd call friends. This is 100% ok with me and preferable.

4. I believe strongly in Karma and I enjoy seeing "instant karma" profusely! For and example of instant karma: lol, ok not the best example, but the only one I could think of off the top of my head. One day I listed something on SLB for $0L by accident. This is when my things were transfer still and it was CLEARLY not a freebie. There were other colors of the same shirt, for 65L listed at the same time. So some girl starts to buy copies of the $0L shirt. She gets about 3-4 before I notice. I think "oh shit, but meh, my fault". So, I raise the price to what it was supposed to be. She however did NOT notice the price going back to what it's supposed to be and continued to buy about 6 more copies.

5. Forgetfullness is one of my biggest vises. I'll forget your name, to call, your birthday, etc. If it's possible to forget, most likely, I've forgotten. Lemme just apologize ahead of time for all those who have to deal with this. lol.

6. Pretty much everything I know that I find useful in my life - has been self taught.

7. I enjoy learning - to the point that I actually STOP liking something if I've learned everything there is to know about it.

8. I have Lupus. An auto-immune disorder where your immune system attacks various organs/functions of your body. For me - it attacks my kidneys, my joints, my brain and my blood.

Ok, last fact is a cop-out if you've read my blog, cuz it's been said...but I can't think of anything else right now and wanna stop doing this!

And um, I don't tag anyone back... because, man, the blog feeds are getting outta control. LOL! Nah, really, I just have no clue who hasn't been tagged now.

Lupus Canada donation, store info

I made The first donation to Lupus Canada today! Total raised so far: L$58070. Thank you to everyone who's purchased any Lupus outfits and/or made donations! :)

The new store build is pretty well done. I'm aiming for Friday sometime to open. I'm giving myself a few days to create some new stuff first. So hopefully I'll stick to that deadline!
