Quiet Moment.

I’ve been on a bit of an unintended hiatus. My video card had to be replaced. It was only a few months old, so I had to go through a warranty exchange with the manufacturer and it took a bit longer than I hoped.

Sometimes, a break is good though. Now with the COVID19 situation, I am working from home. That has been a challenge and I find myself wanting to be back at the office. It’s funny… we are strange, habitual little creatures. “Work” is so awful when it’s all you do, but then you get some “freedom” from it and yearn to go back.

I hope everyone is safe and healthy. ♥


Those quiet moments, few and far between, when the world falls away and you can hear the sound of your own voice again…
What hides behind those silent eyes?

Home & Garden Expo

It’s that time of year again! Second Life is having their annual Home & Garden Expo in support of Relay for Life. ♥

The expo runs from February 13, 2020 until March 4, 2020.

More info here: H&G Expo


.:Tm:. Creation has two exclusive items at the event and 100% of the proceeds goes to Relay for Life!

➤ The Path of Flower nature scene
➤ Sack Planter mix red flowers

Here’s a taxi to the .:Tm:. booth at H&G: Tm Creation at H&G Expo

After the event, you can get these items at the mainstore: Tm Creation mainstore


Birds always flock to the birblady.

Look carefully… you’ll always find faeries hiding in the flowers.

Glamistry is back!

I know you shoe hoarders remember Glamistry! And I also know you noticed the big Glamistry-shaped-hole in your shoe closet when they fell off the SL map.

Well, make some room on those shelves! Glamistry is back with a whole new line of pretties for your feet!

Even better, the new shoes come with ALL the colors, so you don’t have to sit and pick just one, then have buyer’s remorse later as you wish you had bought the fatpack.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. There are 18 color options! Each section of the shoe is customizable – heel, base, straps, and metal. And don’t worry about broken ankles! The lock on these babies is the best I’ve seen!

Oh, and if you have Glamistry shoes from the good ole’ days, you have probably noticed the HUD isn’t working. Just drop by the new mainstore and pick up the HUD fix and it will work again – and an added bonus – ALL the colors will be enabled with the fix, so if you only bought one color previously, you get a little extra perk! 🙂


Heels PF1043. Matching my favorite violet poppies.

All Glamistry information and Mainstore SLURL can be found here:
https://glamistry.xyz/

Stop by, pick up your HUD fix, and some new shoes!!
