Winter is Magical: Winter Fair and Silver Lining Hunt

The Winter Fair opens December 1st offering you a plethora (yeah look at that big 10 dollar word!) of winter delights. And the Silver Lining Hunt is in full swing with tons of festive goodies to be had!

We’ll start off with the cute little houndstooth coat from .:[NMD]:. which is one of their exclusive items at the Winter Fair. .:[NMD]:. proves that there is still a place in SL fashion for well made system and sculptie items. I simply adore this coat! It also comes with the white tights I’m wearing, and there are matching houndstooth boots that are sold separately.

The comfy pair of knit uggs from Intrepid are 5L when you find them in the Silver Lining Hunt. Stunned? IKR? 5L! They are more than worth it, they’re super cute and keep my toesies cozy!

No visit to a winter wonderland would be complete without a suitable pair of gloves and a nice warm hat. Mine are from Tentacio and are available exclusively at the upcoming round of XY Room which begins on December 1st. This will be the last round of XY Room until February, so be sure and stop by!

And last, but definitely not least, you are probably wondering where I got the cute poses you see in these photos! They’re an exclusive item for the Winter Fair from none other than WetCat. I have had a long and happy love affair with WetCat poses through many of my various incarnations. They’re always so well thought out and really infuse the avatar with the emotions you’re trying to convey.

So, there you have it, Shiloh on ice! Happy shopping this weekend!

Where Does Your Inspiration Come From?

Katya Valeska, an amazing blogger and person, blogged earlier about the pressure she puts on herself to blog, and how it can affect her inspiration. Let me tell you, she is not alone.

Writers, artists and creatives in general, wax poetic about one word – inspiration. It can be the wind beneath our wings, and the bane of our existence, depending upon how readily available, or how elusive it is.

As a former paid writer in RL, I can tell you the well of inspiration often runs dry and yet, you have to dig down deep, past the hardened crust, and into the muck to pull out something, ANYTHING to meet your deadline while keeping your reputation as a competent writer intact. You might think now that I am blogging for enjoyment, that the pressure would be alleviated and I’d have inspiration out the wazoo. It just isn’t so, inspiration’s a fickle little thing.

My newest ploy to defeat the reluctant muse, is to keep a dream journal. It’s just a simple notebook at my bedside. Each morning when I wake, eyes bleary and my gorgeous bed head sticking out in all directions, and I will write what ever details I can remember about the night’s dreams and nightmares. Whatever I can remember… it doesn’t have to be a novel. If I remember a color (I don’t care what science says, I dream in color… they’re ridiculous) or perhaps it’s the way I feel… what I call the residue of a dream… I’ll write that down too. Perhaps I’ll find some good imagery to produce a new photo, or the perfect sentence to start that short story I keep meaning to write. I haven’t yet, but I’ll keep on trying.

Our subconscious mind is far more creative than our waking selves. It’s bold, brave and uninhibited. Unlock it and discover what inspiration is hiding right there under your nose, or behind your eyelids.
