WE ARE DELIGHTED YOU CHOSE TO BECOME A 2019 SL CHRISTMAS EXPO SPONSOR! WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO GET INVOLVED WITH THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY AND THE EXPO?
Cancer rocks so many peoples lives and families in one way or another, from friends to family we know. If my creations in a virtual world can raise money and help even one person, I will gladly help anyway I can. I have seen first hand the devastation cancer can bring and would like to help those fighting fight back for the cure.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN SECOND LIFE?
WHEN DID YOU OPEN YOUR BUSINESS?
WHAT MADE YOU BECOME A VIRTUAL MERCHANT?
Wanted to turn my second life into a creative outlet for myself. Building requires alot of creativity and design, along with photography and graphic arts: all of which I love to do.
TELL US WHAT INSPIRES YOUR CREATIONS?
Life! From nature to the youthfulness of kids playing. I see waterfalls and think of flowing ballgowns, I see butterflies and think of tutus and wings. Then after I create I get the seal of approval from my children in real life. If they ask me to make that outfit in real life I know I have a winner. My 15 yr old is autistic and helped me design every autism awareness outfit in 2019. So real life inspires me to create and bring life into things I make.
WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN. REGARDING YOUR SL BUSINESS?
Build from the heart . People will love what you make when you make it with heart and soul. And never get involved with the politics of the business world.
EXPO VISITORS LIKE TO FOLLOW UP WITH OUR MERCHANTS. DO YOU HAVE A STORE ON THE GRID OR MARKETPLACE?
Both but I carry everything on grid.
WHAT CHRISTMAS TREE DECORATION ARE YOU AND WHY?
Snowflake ornament. I stopped comparing myself years ago to others and started accepting myself. I am beautifully flawed and unique like a snowflake, which is perfectly fine- because NO two snowflakes are the same or ever will be. All are beautiful unique and one of a kind.
WHAT ONE WORD WOULD YOUR FRIENDS USE TO DESCRIBE YOU?
TELL US ABOUT YOUR SHOP AT THE EXPO. ARE YOU OFFERING ANY SPECIALS AND IF SO, WHAT ARE THEY?
My store at the expo will be a child’s imagination and view at Christmas. Fun around every corner. The pure joy of Xmas time!
CAN YOU GIVE US A HINT AS TO WHAT WE CAN LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2020 FROM YOUR STORE.
2020 will be custom mesh designs and vibrant of childhood inspired.
