Recreate your first Deco Tag!

Hello Corner Cr

https://flic.kr/p/22i55bZeatures!

I have been thinking about this tag challenge for a week now and I finally got it up and ready! Woohoo! This is my first tag so I am not sure I am doing this right, but I so want to see what other peoples first photo setup was
The challenge is to recreate the first picture you took of a scene you set up in Second Life. You can recreate it using the same items that you used then, if you have them still, or create a completely new scene based on the old one. I chose to do the latter simply because I could not find even half of the items I used for the old one. I also can’t even remember if the building I used is something I got somewhere or one I made myself. But because of the simplicity of it I chose to make the new backdrop from scratch.

Recreating my first Deco old Tag

I think I managed to stay pretty true to my original setup. Having the room divider, a fireplace, candles, rugs, stuff on the wall and a place to sit.
In the video you can see me trying to get some pumpkins into the new setup, but I couldn’t make them look good in there so I dropped them and thought “plants will do”.
Regarding the awful tree stump in the right front of the original set, I do still have it and just – nope. I didn’t even like that one back then but I had it so in it went. I chose the Garden Comfort Chair from CONVAIR in the “Southern Comfort” Deco(c)rate instead. It had a similar organic and out-of-place-inside feel to it. I had a big problem finding this chair though. Could not for the life of me remember which crate it was from so I had to take a field trip to my family’s sim to check the name of it.

Overall I feel like I have achieved about the same look as the scene and am pretty happy with it. I am looking forward to see you guys do the same!

I tag: Jarla , Callie and Alicia

I hope you guys got time to try this!

 

Rules for the challenge:

1. The picture must be the earliest one you’ve got showing you flexing your decorative muscles.
2. You can recreate the picture exactly using the same pieces you used then or like I did use new items positioned similarly to the old one
3. Post both pictures either side by side or separately naming the “Recreating my first Deco new/old”. They can be posted on your blog, Flickr or any other place you use, just leave a link in the comments on this post
4. Tag your friends to do the same

Sitting Down and Shutting Up!

Sitting down and shutting up

Ages ago I promised you guys another video of how I do my pictures in SL. Well the day that you all have been waiting for has finally arrived! I am sure you all have been sitting on pins and needles waiting for this to happen, or not haha. But anyway I enjoyed setting this scene up and it captured a moment in my RL that happened only minutes before. Please watch it here!

To set the scene for you guys: I am on the floor playing with our dog and my husband is finishing up an article whilst listening to music on our stereo. I am sitting back towards a chair, the speaker right in front of me and I get the full blast of the music: Maria Solheim Behind Closed doors. In those precious few moments there was nothing else but the sensation of the music and the feeling of the floor beneath me. I was living in that moment and it was everything.

It was a rather lovely experience and the second after that moment disappeared I knew I wanted to recreate it in Second Life. I thought it was a nice opportunity to use some of the items I got in the Deco(c)rate as well.

Anyway, I hope you guys like the video and please check out Maria Solheim. She is an amazing singer!

And a special thanks to my husband who helped inspire me with his music. Please check out his work!

House Tour and packing it all up

Hi Corner Creatures!

Packing up Willowdale

Today I got a video for you guys. A few days ago I had to pack up my home at Willowdale Estate due to some unplanned events. I really will miss this place though and moving was a hard choice, but one that had to happen:( Well, I won’t go into the negative here. It is an awesome place with that little extra attention to detail and service. I don’t think I have waited more than two hours in total for a reply after contacting the owner about one issue or another, hehe.

A little about my land: I rented a corner lot with sunset view and a glorious beach, which I removed for winter though, so it won’t make a big appearance in the video. The potential of the land will however. At least I think so, but I decorated it so of course I’d say that, haha. Well, I’ll stop boring you now, please hop on over to Youtube, or check out more of my blog if you just came from there.

Check out Willowdale Estate to see what the fuzz is about: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Theron/54/191/57

 

Don’t remember all the credits to this shot as I forgot to take them:

Scarlet Creative Classy Manor
Framed bowties from Apple Fall
Jewlry and watch cases from Bazar
I think the lamp and jewelry box is from Dust Bunny.
Trees outside are from Studio Skye

Proud of myself!

Proud of myself!

Hello!
I am offering coffee again today, but it is not here on my blog, it is over at my second video on YouTube,  and I am speaking in it! Wohoo! It may not seem like a big deal to some, but I have social anxiety and it took a lot to actually do this. I have been wanting for over a year, just so you know! But in the end I decided to quote my dear hubby: “F**c it I’m good!” and uploaded it.
By the way I forgot to offer you guys coffee in my video, so please just pretend that I did;)
I used Lightworks for the first time today too. I am not very good at it yet, but I managed to cut out my nervous throat clearing tics and it sounded pretty good afterwards. I am hoping to get better as I hopefully continue doing this.

Why are you guys still here? Run on over to My Little Corner of YouTube before your coffee gets cold! But please do come back here sometime, I think this is probably where most of the action is gonna be. “For now” she said with a grin.

Excited ❤ from Nea

Credits are in my video today, not sure if I like doing it that way, but I thought I should give it a go.

Vlogger Challenge

Vlogger challenge portrait

So this morning I woke up, poured myself a lovely cup of french press coffee, opened YouTube, and ended up installing OBS for Strawberry Singh’s vlogger challenge. I had my breakfast in between of course.

I am not brave enough yet to talk in my videos, for me it is quite a big step to actually be putting one video up on YouTube in the first place. I am sure several of you can relate and that at least a few of you are in the same position I am in right now. Scared to death to hit that button that makes the video go public *screams*

The Video!

A video I made shortly after the first one that introduces me a bit better;)

Since this is my first video I would do something simple and as I am not talking to introduce myself I figured I could wear one of my own creations to show one part of my Second Life I have not put out there that much in this Blog/Vlog.

The dress I am wearing is the Sakura Sakura dress I made ages ago. It is not my favourite anymore, but it is my most spring like creation. I am wearing it here with the *lovely* prim flowers attachment, but it would probably work best without. Don’t wear physics with this at least;P

Vlogger challenge

I have been wanting to make a video to add to the listing of this dress on MP, so people can see how it looks in motion so thank you so much Strawberry, for the kick in the butt!
