Gosh, it seems like it's been AGES since I've uploaded anything here! i do apologize to my fan(s) - I admit I've been extremely busy (4 kids, 3 dogs, 2 jobs, 1 husband, and going to school full time), and slightly lazy. That, and I'm not overly thrilled about the new upload system here at TSR. Creating is so much fun! Submitting it sucks dirt. I mean REALLY. I mean, if I'm going to forgo my study time, it shouldn't be so painful!
On my lazy (but no less creative) days, I've been submitting to my sister site, Simaholics R Us: www.simaholicsrus.com . You'll see things there that I don't have uploaded here. Ricci2882 is the site owner, and she makes it really easy (and fun!) to be in a creative frenzy! She's also an awesome creator/recolorer/lot builder in her own right. I've really enjoyed working with her.
Where do I get my inspiration? From everywhere. I may get a request for a kitchen, and then all of a sudden, I'll see (or create) a texture that absolutely SCREAMS kitchen, and I'll whip one up. My most successful recolor to date is the Star Child nursery. I whipped that texture up in just a few minutes, just because it came to me in a dream (or something). My worst recolor, the butterscotch, i did because I liked the color and the texture. Apparently I was the only one :) so you see, anything is possible in Simland!
Ok, that, and I am the proud owner of a narcoleptic pekingese and a schizophrenic chug (pug/chihuahua mix). Am I making light of those two very serious illnesses? Absolutely not. Cecelia (the peke) falls asleep in her dinner bowl almost constantly. The kids have even held her upside down to see if she still snores (she does).Pebbles (the chug) hears voices. Or at least, she tells us she does. I'm thinking it's probably because she is about 900 in doggy years. poor thing. How does this help me to create? Inspiration, absolute total pure inspiration. The Blue flowers set is a take on Cecelia's (we call her sis) favorite blanket. Daisies are Pebbles' favorite flower. to eat. you see what i mean?
Ok, I'm supposed to be at work now (I love Krystal's what can I say), so I guess I'd better get lost for now. and I have class tonite. Creative Problem solving. hmm...maybe i can figure out why Ricci2882 isn't an FA yet......
