New Light Through Old Windows

Hello... gosh, I really need to clear away all these cobwebs and dust bunnies...

Anyway, I've started making things again, sort-of.

When I first converted the EA 'BahHaus' build set, I couldn't be bothered to convert the fence, but I've finally got my finger out and done it. And fixed a couple of bloopers. So, all the components of the set now have prices (sorry, no more free windows!). I've also realigned the diagonals for the two corner windows, so that they do now sit in the corner. Finally, I've also made centred versions of the two corner windows, because I wanted them. Et, voila!

Let's Go To Bed

It's finally time to share this!

What it includes:

1) Plain white base textures for quilted and plain bedding.
2) A PSD template with shading overlays, and some ready made sheet/pillow layers for you to mix and match with your own quilts/blankets.
3) PS actions (and written instructions) for creating seamless single bedding and your own sheet/pillow layers.

Please be aware that this probably won't be completely straightforward to use for beginners in PS. However, full instructions are included (in PDF form) in the download, and if anyone has any questions or problems, then please do feel free to ask me here. I'd be especially interested to hear about any 'bugs', so that I can fix them.

Some credit would be very lovely if you share beddings that you have made using this Kit, but of course that's up to you.


I almost forgot! Huge thanks to my testers - you're all marvellous: shastakiss, Whispers, Hafiseazale and 13pumpkin.

Santa Claus Is Coming to Town: Part II

The second part of my gift is a whole bunch of content inspired by the lots posted above, but obviously can be used in other contexts too.

All sorts of odds and ends and bits and pieces... )

Sister Moon: Addendum

A small add-on to the 'Sister Moon' eye set, with a few more colours created by StormPup:

The main downloads in the post linked to above have also been updated.

Sister Moon

As it says on the tin: this is Yumedust's 'Eye Love' eyes, on Pooklet's sclera, in a whole host of new colours (taken from my 'Nothing Like the Sun' edits of the same eyes, plus a few extras). These were made as part of a Wishing Tree request on GoS a few months ago, but of course with recent events they had been lost... until now!

Eye love, you love... )

Last Day of Summer

Since nothing is too much trouble when it comes to shastakiss, and I would do (almost!) anything she asked, here is a little add-on to yesterday's post: the California Dreamin' summer-themed wallpapers with shastakiss's moulding top and bottom, for those with AL.

I jiggled the patterns a little on most of these, to make them line up nicely with the new moulding ('cause I'm funny that way), so I also remade the original wallpapers to align exactly with them. Just allow the new versions to overwrite the old, if you choose to replace them. (There's nothing wrong with the old version at all, but if for some reason you want both types of border/moulding and want them to line up, then grab the new version instead.)

The Unbirthday Song

It's probably no secret that I think shasatakiss is altogether delovely, so when she asked me to make these meshes, and I discovered that it was her birthday, all in the same week, how could I resist? Unfortunately, I'm as slow as slow can be, so this is at least a month late, and probably more... so it's an unbirthday gift, for an unbirthday.

Included is my usual gold recolour for the frames. The meshes are slaved to Maxis 'Bella Squared' for the painting texture, but the frame texture is independent.

There are base-game (nothing special to say about this) and AL-friendly (will appear at the bottom of the wall when selected from the catalog and can be shifted to the desired height) versions included in the download; please select the correct one for your game and discard the other.

Since on their own the frames looked a little lonely, and as shasta seems to appreciate a cute print as much as I, I also made a handful of recolours of 'Bella Squared' to go along with them:

{preview courtesy of shasta herself}

And then I just went mad, and made some additional recolours for the BV travel poster too (because I came across too many cute pictures that were unsquare, but that I wanted to use anyway!):

{these will work with HugeLunatic's base-game version of the Maxis mesh, if you don't have BV}

I'm so behind on posting stuff! Anyway, if there's anyone out there who missed the GoS Advent this year, here is my contribution:

Just something oldish that's been buried in the GoS Wishing Tree for a while...

Who Needs Sleep/BTO for Jacci: Updated!

While I was making the new default and custom bedding that I posted yesterday, I noticed a few little things that bugged me about the two sets of bedding I had made previously. So, I have updated those two sets - mostly just in terms of rescaling the patterns slightly to fit better, and tweaking the shading overlay (which was a little off-centre before).

The original download archives have already been updated, but here are the files again - just redownload and allow them to overwrite the old versions:



Au revoir!

Project Default: Secondary Phase

Feeling crappy today, suffering from my second cold in less than two weeks, so I'll let the pictures do most of the talking on this occasion...

Who Needs Sleep?

It seems I never shared these on my blogs - shocking! ;P

Anyway, here they are now, my contribution for the GoS Treasure Hunt earlier this year (in case anyone didn't find them, although given the number of downloads I think that unlikely!) - 25 patterned recolours of the Maxis bedding:

Hello City

I've had these 95% complete for a while now, so it was time I finished them off and uploaded them. Just to clarify, these are the 'basic' versions of the TS3 Late Night buildings - i.e. they just sit there, looking buildingish, and don't light up at night. However, there is also a bonus wharf building, two cranes (with flashy red lights on top!) and some scaffolding included.

We are still working on the lit versions, and they'll be ready when they are ready. ;)

In the meantime, enjoy!

Wedding Vows in Vegas

MESH NOW INCLUDED! The custom version of the short wedding dress default that I posted last night, because I thought it deserved a post if its own, since it's all new and shiny. :)


Maxis, Mr. OstrichBird, Sentate and Jaccirocker for the mesh

Fashion Fever

Default replacements! I can never have enough default replacements, I tell you! So here are some more, made by my good self, with lots of help from Marja's splendid tutorials. Before I forget, I must also thank the lovely [personal profile] xjoelbabix, for taking the previews for me. <3

Oh, and for those not into default replacements, there are also custom versions of the new recolours I have made. :)

Runaway Horses

A quickie...

These are basically recolours of my 'The Snake and the Moon', but this time binned as eyeshadows. Most are Huning's colours, but the three on the bottom right are my own additions to the set.

Incidentally, I have also rebinned 'The Snake and the Moon' as (non-layerable) eyeshadow, over here, if anyone is interested. :)


Texture - Anva, heavily edited by me
Alpha - Bruno, edited almost beyond recognition by me
Colours - me/Huning
