Christmas @ Studio Sidhe!!!

Merry nearly christmas everyone!

Okays, first things first... Today we released our embroidered flower jacket in a limited edition christmas colour set. AND it's 2 for the price of 1!!! So you get the Green with Red and the Red with Green trim plus the sleeve fillers for $150L plus sleeve fillers to go with. This special is only available until christmas day and only from our main store.

I've also been decorating my mains store, and decided that my tree looked a bit naked! >.< so I've made some gift boxes to go underneath =D ... they have store cards in each, but at a 20% discount, from now until christmas day.

I've just finished my sl christmas shopping and had set myself the task of getting all my friends stuff from shops other than my own! *rubs sore shopped-out feet* and I have to say by the end of it, I was walking into stores, seeing items that where no trans (which is cool, most of my items aren't either), I immediately looked for a store card or a gift certificate... if I couldn't find either, I just TP'd out... which is a shame, cause there is just sooo much cool stuff out there!!! (sl is bursting at the seams with talented people I swear!)

Anyway, enough about my shopping; except to say it made me resolved to make life easy for other shoppers... and so the gift wrapped store cards came into being... the boxes themselves are mod/trans so you can resize, retint, do whatever to jazz them up for your friends :)

the store card prices:
$1000L is $800L
$500L is $400L
$300L is $240L
$100L is $80L

You'll find the gift boxes under the tree in my mainstore at Alpha Centauri, please note that the store cards in the normal storecard vendor are not on sale, only the ones in the gift boxes =D

I hope that makes your shopping adventure a bit easier,
Have fun, and have a great christmas both in your SL and RL.

I've been TAGGED!!! (Thanks Ryan :P) LOL

Ok, so I totally admit that I have been of two minds about this and the fact that I am one of the LAST to be tagged... One half of me has been all "*phew* I got under the radar!...Woot!" the other more contradictory half of me was all "WTF! EVERYONE else has been tagged except meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! ;o( "

Before I try to find a happy balance between my two opposing views and get on with this; I would just like to say that I have really enjoyed reading previous tags :o)

The Rules:

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

1/ I was born and raised in gods own city of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia (seriously, it's the greatest place to live!) It's a place where you work to live, not live to work... we all enjoy our leisure :o) The weather is great, the people rock and nothing really ever happens in rush... I love it! I have lived elsewhere in Australia, but still Dizzy-Brizzy is the best to me =D

2/My Avatar's name Faery Sola was taken from "Faery" which is what most of my RL mates call me, because I ran a faery theme children's party entertainment business for 9 yrs. (working as a bardic faery for a total of 10 yrs) I loved it and that stage of my life, I love my present stage of life too, but I have moved on from performing arts to something where I can incorporate all my faery-ness...Teaching!!! But once a faery, always a faery! *grins*

3/ I am ADDICTED to Crocs... I have 7 pairs... Orange, Purple, Pink, Green, Light Blue, Red,Black. (the black are for evening wear! LOL... kidding! (a bit) ;)

4/I cannot cook on ANY level, I have even managed to stuff up two-minute noodles :P I love eating though, and happilly can dial the phone, so can order in, call friends who can cook and offer my services as an appreciative taste-tester, and I can use the microwave... frozen meals are the greatest invention of the modern age!

5/I HATE shopping in RL, I see absolutely no point in browsing through EVERY store in a shopping centre or mall just to see what is on offer.... I know what I want> find the shop> walk in & find item > buy... done!

6/ I love cricket, it's our national sport, and it's bloody BRILLIANT! I am a complete yobbo during cricket season and will sit for a whole test, drinking beer, eating pizza and yelling at the TV, I have also been known to make obnoxious answering machine messages for those unfortunate soles thoughtless enough to try and interrupt my cricket time :D

7/ My favourite non-alcoholic drink is a Pub Raspberry (lemonade with raspberry cordial... heavy on the raspberry) & coffee (very white, easy on the coffee, with two flat halves of sugar... which is *different* to one flat whole teaspoon... trust me it is) LOL My favourite alcoholic drinks: guinness and XXXX ( XXXX = beer, Queensland beer to be precise)

8/ I hate yellow gold jewelry and will refuse to wear it in RL or SL for that matter... I only wear silver, white gold or platinum XD

Ok done! now for the next victims... hmmm, who will they be? (the list as yet is not published as I am one of the LAST people in SL to be tagged... so am kind of out of ideas...for the moment!)

UPDATE: Wednesday Soon has been tagged!

Where the hell is Faery???

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know that due to EXTREME & unforseen circumstances(well probably not *that* unforseen given the regularity of my crashing LOL) AKA my little compy breaking, I will be unable to log into SL in the next few days =(

I would just like to take the opportunity though, to say that while my little mac was not made for the massiveness that is SL, she served me well and *sniffle* I will miss her. (ok so you've probably realised that I am one of those people that gets sentimental over the most bizarre things :P

That being said; I eagerly await my shiny new mac, and will be hanging near my phone in the next few days! Then I will be able to finish the new womens garments that I have been working on for the last week or so preceeding this debacle... hooray!

ATM I am writing this on the compy I got from RL work that is totally hideous... it's only two weeks old and I swear is powered by gerbils in need of palliative care >.< (not to mention a *shudders* PC... no offence intended to PC users out there, but I just don't work well with PCs on ANY level :P

Anyway, that's my auto-rant for this evening done. If you need any assistance in world, I thank you, in anticipation, for your understanding =D and will be in world soon.

Until then, take care and have fun,

Studio Sidhe Joins the Autism Speaks in Second Life Campaign

Ok, so last week end I was supposed to hold my Grand Opening for my new store at Alpha Centauri, but due to technical difficulties had to postpone it until this weekend... LUCKILY! It was so one of those "meant to be" things, because during the week I found out about this wonderful cause that Daphne Molinari has bought to SL; Autism Speaks in Second Life.

Since reading Daphne's blog and contacting her, I have been busy setting up a combined event to both celebrate the opening of my new mainstore and raise funds for Autism Speaks. We will be holding a scavenger hunt at our new store tonight, Friday at 5pm SLT. The event will run for two hours and 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Autism Speaks =D.

You'll find a Kiosk at the store which allows you to donate directly to Autism Speaks in SL. We have also made a t-shirt to promote this cause (see pics) in two different versions. ALL of the money raised from the sale of the t-shirts will go to this cause AND we've also made a Free placard with sign hold animation and script to link you up with the Autism speaks website, so you can show your support and help to spread the word!

Now for the scavenger hunt details!:
You'll be looking for boxes, each one containing a store card valued at between $10L and $300L. (see pic)

How it works:

We hope to see you there, it's going to be fun, we'll be raising money for a great cause AND you get to check out my new shop! LOL
Take care,

Our Main Store Has Moved!!!

We have a MUCH bigger store that we've just built at Alpha Centauri... it was a bit sad to leave Stradtrand, I think being the first land we bought, you kind of get attached. But it was time to move on and scratching for prims has a way of forcing the issue LOL.

I really like our new location, it's by the ocean and has a great airy feel to it... everyone that has dropped by while building and moving was going on has commented on that, so I'm happy :)

Studio Sidhe has some room to grow here, and it's when I contemplate just how far we've come, I am very proud to say "yup! that's me, 'THE Sidhe'" =D

I had originally planned a great event to mark the opening this weekend, but due to a number of factors that has had to be postponed until next weekend. I'll let you know the all the details sooner to the big day!

Until then, thanks to everyone who has supported :+:SS:+:

take care,

New Release: Men's Leather Case

A couple of days ago I released this case, and I must say that it’s reception has been very warm indeed!

I am very proud to present this new piece; the textures are rich and full of realistic detail to be an accessory that will add a sense of casual style to your avatars ensemble.

The texture is complemented by fine prim work buckles and findings are done in a warm bronze texture to complement the rich leather. When I conceptualised this case I researched and took guidance from prominent SL fashionista’s with the view of creating a piece that was a meeting of old-world style and modern chic… whether or not I hit the mark on that one, I will let you be the judge!

I  love this case and am currently in the planning phase for a black case and perhaps later a reddish hue. I have taken to wearing it around a lot myself LOL, proving that stylish accessories, while made with a particular gender in mind, can look great on anyone!

I hope you enjoy wearing this case as much as I have enjoyed making it… this truly has been a joy with everything just seeming to come together.


For those of you interested in what I’m wearing:

Welcome to Studio Sidhe!

"Greetings one and all, we're all so glad to see you here... we'll play your favourite songs while you all soak up the atmosphere, we'll start with Ogal River then maybe Stormy Weather too, there's nothing else you have to do -- On with the show, good health to you!"
(Rolling Stones, "on with the show")

Ok so you might have guessed this blog is going to be like me (for those of you that know me), which is to say; not of the norm.

Intro to those of you that don't know me; I am a designer in SL and my shop/label is Studio Sidhe (or :+:SS:+: might ring bells for some, as you dig through your inventory =D). I am a RL artist and started out selling limited copies of my RL art in SL. I then progressed to making a few simple tops featuring my RL art. I now make all sorts of random attire... I say "random" because pretty much, I just get an idea of what I'd like to wear, then I make that, and people so far have seemed to like it.

The biggest buzz for me is seeing someone wearing something I've made... I love it! The fact that someone liked my stuff enough to buy it is a thrill, it's one of those things that never gets old XD

At the moment I am working on quite a few things... I do that a lot LOL I am sadly not one of the designers who has new releases every week, I am in fact quite possibly the slowest designer in SL :P But when I release stuff I seem to either do it in either a big way or with quite a few items at once :o)

Anyway, thank you for reading my first entry, I had better get back to my drawing board =D
