Goodbye Grixdale

Grixdale is closing down at the end of August, I have a been a fan of Tyranny/Grixdale for quite a number of years now. I have always been able to tell Tyr puts her all in everything she makes, clothing, skins, poses what have you. And I must add she has always had the most excellent customer service I have come across in my four+ years in SL. Always on the ball, positive and with a kind word and a smile, she works it all out for you. I will certainly miss this brand very much, Her carefree and relaxed but destined to be pretty style is something I always looked forward to in every new release. Grixdale also has a very greedy Pack of dresses and makeup available@the new event Collarbo88 all for only 88L. Also scoot on over to the Mainstore where everything in the store is on sale for 50-100L and worth every little penny to pick up before the end of the month when this classic store will be gone. Good Luck Tyr and thank you for the many years of dressing me in style ๐Ÿ˜‰

*** she also has a whackload of Makeup up for Super Bargain Saturday, all Free! Go Go Go!!!!

Monday Morning Mashup

Waves hi to everyone, I had a very hard notebook-nvidia-driver-crash while on sl beta in shadowmode, over the weekend, so I spent 4 hours yesterday with a very nice techie in my local Futureshop. But I am back and hopefully up and running again. I am thinking about going Mac now though lol, although I am not so sure how well sl will run on it long term, they let me download sl on a store model and it ran excellent! But I will be looking for some input, anyone running sl on a MacBook Pro? Leave a comment, or im me inworld if you do, before I take the plunge!

Here are some pretties I managed to pick up over the weekend and this am. Hope you are all having a great day, now off to get my second java, what would I do without my coffee! hehe

In the Shadows

I have spent the past couple of days learning about taking pictures with Shadows, and wow talk about being a lagfest. I have taken direction from the wonderful Strawberry Singh, who has a great Tutorial section her blog StrawberrySingh.com . I have concentrated on using a few windlight settings with and without the shadows enabled. Let me know which ones you like! And I apologize ahead of time if some are a bit pixelated or dark, I am learning and you cannot learn anything unless you screw it up a bit, can you? lol

This is a picture heavy post, and not as much rambling like I have been doing, which I know some people who read my blog will just love lol.

Ok ok, you got me, last picture was just to show off this very beautiful limited lucky board skin that I won from hsh. If you want this one you better hurry it will be gone soon, you do have to join the group to win this skin, but so worth it, don’t you think? This is a release of her brand new line so go go go!
Now I use SL 2.4 viewer, and I have a brand new notebook, with an Nvidia GE Force GT 425M chip for graphics, which can handle just about anything I throw at it, but when in Shadow mode, I can barely move, so when the suggestion is find the spot first you want to photograph in, do it! It will save you a whole hella bunch of lag and crashing!
Ok off for now, but thank you Strawberry for all the great tutorials, hopefully within time I will get better lol
