Holiday Skins!

I’m a SUCKER for a beautiful skin. Especially with beautiful makeup, or in an interesting color – like green 🙂

Aikea Rieko of The Plastik has put out a bunch of different skins for the Holidays and they fit perfectly into my obsession. The skins that are in her elven tones come with several makeups – the special holiday makeups (24 Carat, Ice Queen, Hollyjolly, Holly Blooms) and basic makeups (plain, freckles, cult, evel, tribe, shade). I am in love. Is it inappropriate to propose over virtual creations?

These are from The Snowflake Experience… (I’m not sure if they’ll be available after the event is over, but I’ll update when I do find out.)

Plastik Emerald Plastik - Holly Plastik - Candycane Plastik Cranberry

These are from Holiday Hill (on Harold)… again, I’m not sure if they’ll be available after the event ends, but I’ll update when I do know. Also, the Holly Blooms are available for all of the standard Lionheart skintones, I’m just showing Fable here.

Baking Treats

The first day of holiday baking starts out optimistic.  So many people on your list, and all of them love cookies!

TSE - Baffle! & TJunction

Except, I keep forgetting that making cookies takes forever.

Somehow, the amount of dough you have to work with never gets any smaller… not on day two

Or day three…

Eventually, all of the cookies are done, packed and ready to be given to your friends and family, which means that it’s time to check on that stocking you left by the fireplace and see if any goodies have magically appeared.

Just be sure you don’t get caught, or they might disappear.

For more stocking shenanigans, there are a few more pictures (and bigger versions of the pics here) on my Flickr.

Have you checked out the Snowflake Experience yet?

If not, you should definitely go check it out.  If you have, then you should go back again – and not just because I said so!  The creators involved have provided great items – some exclusive, some new, some free, and some that split the proceeds with Toys for Tots. Many of the Toys for Tots items are exclusive, so to get them you’ll have to get to The Snowflake Experience before it closes (it closes tomorrow, December 23rd).

Snow is Falling…

…somewhere in the world. Actually, there are snow flurries at home, but I cleverly avoided them by heading South.  While I’m here, you should check out the Snowflake Experience.

This event has been beautifully organized and has some amazing designers with exclusive items.  Even better? A lot of these items benefit Toys for Tots!

Instead of taking my word for it, check out the Snowflake Experience for yourself… and these couple of pics I took (more to come, of course).

Landing Point - TSE

Winter Wonderland - TSE Santa's Playground - TSE

Candy Cane Lane - TSE Kids Zone - TSE

Divided into four distinct areas around a central hub, I have named them (so this is totally not official): the Winter Wonderland (the area with the igloo in the middle), Santa’s Playground (the area with the sleigh in the middle), Candy Cane Lane (the picture explains this one pretty clearly), and the Kids Zone (stores seem to be mostly for SL child avatars, but everyone can enjoy the decorations!).

The Snowflake Experience runs from December 4th (today) through December 23rd. You can find it on the Sugar Shores sim (click on the sim name for the slurl).

Have a great weekend!
