HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017

Sunbeam took some TIME off from blogging in the year 2016.  A lot of TIME off! A whole year of TIME off ! NOW she’s ready to start anew. 2016 was so full of lots of fun in OpenSim: special projects, special builds, HG VISIONZ magazine, many changes and much more she was involved with there just wasn’t any TIME left for blogging.

time

Anything and everything under the ‘Sun’ is fair game.  We decided to revamp the way we do our blog for 2017.  Instead of 50+ images showing her travels and friends and what she’s was up to in the OpenSim Metaverse each month, we choose NOW a simpler life, a simpler blog focusing on one subject at a TIME.    We may blog on thoughts, on a word (or two or three), on an OS destination, on an OS event, on a friend, or an enemy, or a spirit.  The main objective is to K.I.S.S. my blog (Keep it Short and Simple).

TIME is the word for today’s blog.

TIME: noun> “the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole”.

TIME: verb> “plan, schedule, or arrange when (something) should happen or be done”.

TIME is that one thing one never has enough to do all they want to do.  We must use the verb TIME to make the noun TIME fulfil our dreams and visionz.  As most everyone knows, the best laid plans of Fairies and humans often go awry.  Things often go wrong even though you have carefully planned what you are going to do. With that said our new 2017 mottos shall be: ‘Go with the Flow’ and have a ‘Devil may care’ attitude and with thoughts like those TIME will always be on my side! I’m gonna ‘live in the moment’!!!

In closing I’d like to say “Happy New Year! Have fun, enjoy life and may 2017 be your best year ever!” Step in Sunshine

Delightful December

December has so many facets; A) End-of-the-Year month      B) Winter Solstice month     C)  Christmas Day.  All Delightful! End-of-the-Year conjures up hope for a better tomorrow and an exciting future.  Winter Solstice brings sparkle and beauty to our world, all bright, white and positive.  And Christmas Day bringing family and friends closer oozing love and unselfishly sharing our hearts and humanity, true and giving. We believe the Magic of Giving indeed brings happiness to all.

Sunbeam was so busy in this month of December 2015 she took over 200 photographs: building her Happy Holidays area at AAcme City, GCG, attending various HG tours, attended OSCC, began Mentoring at GCG, going to fab Winter/Christmas parties including a Masquerade Ball, where Sun won 2nd Place in Theme Dress contest,  joining in on two ‘Treasure Hunts’ (Tangle HG Hunt and GCG Winter Hunt) and chillin’ with friends and family! Of course we didn’t post all 200, lol, but do hope you enjoy our Delightful December Slideshow below.  Enjoy !  Smiles!

YAY 2016 is here.  Happy New Year to ALL!  and after much reflection and thought about Metaverse Magic,  the virtual adventures Sunbeam has experienced over the last three years, we have decided its time for a change.  A change to our format for 2016.  After reading a post by Selby Evans on blogging “Keep it Simple” Google +, that is exactly what we intend to try and do.  Instead of cramming a whole month of her adventures into one post, we will do a Simple Post detailing one event or activity at a time.  Hopefully blogging a few time per month.  Smiles!

As always my valued friends, and soon to be friends, thank you for visiting my Metaverse Magic and Step in Sunshine!

Obsessed by a fairy tale, we spend our lives searching for a magic door and a lost kingdom of peace. Eugene O’Neill

NOVEMBER NOTABLES

November was a HUGE month for notable events that Sunbeam was a part of.  Sun started off with the Premiere  of the Immersive Edge, a hypergrid story, then on to the celebration of being an avatar at the AvatarFest and then the exciting Grand Opening of Leighton Marjoram’s new grid ‘Lighthouse Point’.  There was a Birthday party for Nara’s Nook, Happy Birthday Two Years Old! AND her home grid GCG (Great Canadian Grid) celebrated their Two Years Old Birthday!  and Sun and the team of VISIONZ produced their biggest issue ever with a whopping 90 page edition.

Christmas came to our Virtual Worldz with lots of winter regions popping up to explore and Ice Skating parties to attend.  Naturally our party girl, Sunbeam,  jumped in with both wings! She set up a Free Christmas shop at her friend Linda Kellie’s Christmas region on GCG and she also built a little Christmas scene at the Winterfest Expo on the Tangle Grid.

Of course in between all these notable events Sun went to HG tours, concerts and parties, enjoyed a private tour of her friends’ Anna and Steve Ford’s ‘Pet Gallery’, plus her friend Jessie Campbell taught her how to play the game ‘Greedy’.  May of been beginners luck but Sun won both games they played! Sun also did some fun exploring and went shopping and bought some new gowns.

Sun also set up two new shops in AAcme City, one a Mermaid shop and the other Aine’s Statues (Of course all items are free to copy).  She did some landscaping around the city (terraforming really relaxes us), added some animals to the forest and cleaned up some areas that were overly primmy.  She moved the Halloween graveyard to a new area by the AAcme Airport and ser up her Happy Holidays HO HO HO area in it’s place.  All in All November was a busy, fun and exciting month for this little Fae!

A high note in Sunbeam’s life was when she took her friend Scarlet ‘Abby’ Rose to meet Elsie and Anna, Scarlet’s idols,  at Fred Beckhusen’s Ice Castle on his Outworldz grid.  Scarlet was so excited and really loved riding the dragons.  Scarlet was born with MD and is a very special young lady who guided by her nurse and my virtual sister, Kat Ewry finds fun and love in the virtual environment.

A low note in Sunbeam’s life was when she lost her dear friend and virtual nephew, one of the great musicians of our worldz, hunter Montgomery to a heart attack.  hunter went peacefully in his sleep; may he rest in peace as he lives on in our hearts.  Also there was the world wide tragedy  of the terrorists attack in Paris, France.  Sun has many friends in the Franco grid and was thrilled to hear that all of them were safe and survived this unfathomable incident.

If I must say what the most notable event that happened in Sunbeam’s journey it has to be when she FINALLY broke down and used her voice.  Yes, she does has a voice.  Ever since ‘Voice’ came out in Second Life (about 10 years ago) Sunbeam was distinctly opposed to it.  Sunbeams’ typist being hard to hear and having ear problems most of her life aslo was against the activating their voices.  The awful sounds from the ear plugs and the ear splitting feedback and the confusion of 20 avatars talking at once hurt their sensitive ears.  Even though Sun’s ears are huge and pointy, they don’t work well at all!  Plus she really liked ‘type text’ where she could always go back and review conversations, maybe something she missed or needed to make note of.  One night after a party everyone was chatting and having a gay old time while Sun was typing away and no one noticed. We decided right then to ‘activate’ our voice and early the next morning she went to her friend Daisy Coronet who patiently taught her how to use the voice system.  Thank you Daisy!

As has become our custom, here are a few pictures taken during the month of November… please enjoy the slideshow showing the fun Sunbeam has in her virtual worldz with family and friends this month of November 2015:

O O O O O October

What amazes me about the month of October is how long it seems to last.  In reality it is only 31 days with the majority of our months being 30 days, so why does one day make such a difference? A puzzle to me. So 0 0 0  0 October month Sunbeam had way too much fun with her favorite holiday “Halloween”. She created a ‘Halloween Haunts’ area in her virtual home, AAcme City, and attended many Halloween themed regions and mazes and parties not to mention shopping for a costume for the BIG night itself!

In between her Halloween build (AAcme City Halloween Haunts) and various other activities she finished up her Scene Five-Immersive Edge:A hypergrid story project which opens November 7th spearheaded by Nara Malone ‘Nook’ and Shannan Albright, two of the sweetest real life romantic authors you’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.  Shannan is new to the Virtual Worlds, about one and half years learning the ropes. Nara has embraced these virtual worlds for a long time.  Sun took the time to sit in the audience during the filming supporting the Immersive Edge team while they were guests on Mal Burn’s InWorld Review Metaverse Broadcasting TV show, cheering them on and beaming with pride to be a part of this unbelievable Virtual World history in the making. It’s hard to believe it was just started a few months back when it was discussed and now it is really happening!

Mal Show Immersive Edge_001

October was the month Sun published her VISIONZ Halloween Issue putting it out 10 days early so the Hyperverse would have plenty of time to absorb the Halloween spirit shown by the Metaverse community.  Such fun and such fabulous visual sightings to explore tickling anyone’s fancies, especially those of us that love the spirit world and the conjuring up what could be beyond our imaginations and beliefs.  It’s Magical indeed!

halloween-COVER1

Sunbeam designed two exhibits; one with her love and soulmate AAcme Fall, together setting up an AAcme City display and the other all about her beloved VISIONZ magazine. to be shown at the upcoming ‘Avatarfest’ event opening November 14th. A joint effort of many talented promoters who so love the community spirit they wish to spread of the word of how awesome it is to be an ‘Avatar of the Metaverse’.  It would be great to say of the Hyperverse, but there are still many closed virtual worldz they put up non penetrable walls for Hypergrid travelers.  .

Avatarfest AAcme_002

and she went to a wedding of her adopted niece Shayna to Will Ingly:

Wedding Shayna and Will_005

plus she was given a ‘peek’ preview of Fred Beckhusen’s additions to his Yo Frankie game and a tour of his Ice Castle, she was honored to be its’ first visitor.  If Fred reads this I’d just like to say “Am not a bug!!! nanny nanny nanny.  I just like to find them and play with them”.  It’s always fun being with Fred how he makes me laugh out loud for real with his wit and charm.  Then when he goes into his ‘techo talk mode’ listen attentively and perhaps a bit greedily to try to absorb and retain as much information as I can because Fred is truly the Da Vinci of the Hyperverse community, in my humble opinion and any time I’m with dear Fred my wings glow brighter and my virtual experience is enhanced.

O O O O O Sunbeam also attended quite a few Hypergrid tours with the HG Safari and HG Nights groups. Insert Drumroll here.  Sunbeam Magic was honored by being selected as ‘Miss March’  2016 for the online and real paper version of the HG Safari calendar created by Thirza Ember.  Thirza is a go getter organizing the best tours (did some Zombie killing and reunited with my favorite all time video game Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda virtual representation.  Wowsa was I in game heaven, I remember how that game really brought out the strong connection she developed with her grandson during the Zelda days ((of course that was a few years before I Sunbeam Magic was created)). Thirza also is an artist and clothes designing and creator and full avatars and a zillion other virtual items she shares with the Hyperverse.  Sunbeams’ Halloween costume was made the talented Thirza Ember.

Calendar girl Sunbeam ltrs

Sunbeam attended many, probably should say that twice, many many virtual parties, Of course a Halloween Costume one at Marina Bay Beach Club, one at the Bleeding Rose with dj ladyjo, a couple on GCG with wosy ogrady at the Starlight Ballroom and a couple at the new Hot Rod Cafe with DJ Nox.  She went shopping with friend Talia Sunsong, she attended her friend Isis Ophelia’s birthday day where live singer and long time CECI Dover sang and a couple parties at the Summer of Arts 2015 event on Metropolis and then there were a couple parties on the Tangle grid too.  Phew, October was surely party month indeed!  Oh and she set up a new shops on her friend Kamira Shirah’s new Moroccan build which is totally beautiful and set up a shop at Anna May’s new region too both on the Great Canadian Grid! She visited friends and friends visited her.  What a grand O O O O O October it was indeed.

She took so many pictures this month of all her activities and adventures that it would take a month of Sundays to scroll through them all if posted one by one so we will close this O O O O O blog with a slideshow of the those images (about 88 of them wowsa) …

Sit back and relax and view the show!

SEPTEMBER SIZZLES

The month of September found Sunbeam busier than ever! She learned a lot about NPC’s and how to direct them like actors in a stage play, she worked long long hours on ‘Immersive Edge’ A Hypergrid Story (and game) which is a collaboration of many talented creators and scriptors coming together to make a vision of Nara Malones’ come alive.  Sunbeam also set up a Steampunk exhibit at the Tangle’s grid Steam Expo that ran September 12th to October 7th.  Of course Sun took some breaks from building and went dancing at Hedoism and visited some friends and went on a couple Hypergrid tours.  The magazine VISIONZ September issue was the biggest yet with 46 pages.  She attended the Farewell party for an OpenSim Core Developer, Justin CC, who is moving on to a new job.  She attended Opening day of the Summer of Arts 2015 event on Metropolis grid and was amazed at the art displayed.  .

September is also the month of Sunbeam’s rl typist, me, birthday. We celebrated with family and received many well wishes on the social site Facebook.  Seems Nara Malone also has a September birthday and Sun went to Nara’s virtual birthday party.  Fun times!

Sunbeam also went Dragon Flying! Yeah Baby! What a fun time at Fred Beckhusen’s Phaze Dragons region where you can fight skeletons, ride dragons and explore some great builds by Fred.

Sunbeam attended Market day at the River Lands, went fishing with fellow fae Talia Sunsong, and attended the HG Nights’ tour to explore the new Fairy region recently added to the River Lands community.

Since I’m a bit late getting this month’s blog out, we will just do a slideshow of images to speed things up !  Again thank you for reading my blog and reliving our virtual adventures.  As always my valued friends, and soon to be friends, Step in Sunshine!

AUGUST ADVENTURES

August was an unusual month for Sunbeam, as about ten (10) of those days Dude and I were off in the RL grid on summer vacation. August was a lonely month as many other virtual friends also take off into the RL and are greatly missed.  Well, let me tell you when Sun returned to her world, she made up for lost time and went to a dozen or so concerts and music events, whoa slow down girly!!!  Sunbeam’s partying even went to the extreme of dancing in her birthday suit, baring it all at Hedonism, Refuge Grid.

Sun got herself a couple new outfits: one from the returned and beloved Linda Kellie Free templates, a mesh mini dress. Her second new outfit was a gift from the Guest Writer, Linda Diva (in Augusts’s VISIONZ magazine issue).  Her third new outfit was gifted by Shannan Albright, called Fantasia.  Sun felt so behind and was in such a hurry to publish on time, she made a real boo-boo adding the wrong picture set to the wrong article, (oops and ugh!) but all in all the magazine was well received.  Sunbeam is truly a blessed fairy with so many kind and giving friends.

Sun got right to work on her HG Story, Scene Five (with Nara’s Nook grid), and Sun attended a most informative NPC seminar put on by Nara Malone. I think even though she was totally overwhelmed,  a few things did penetrated her virtual brain and my old real life brain.  Giggles.  She is such a lucky little Fairy having Fred Beckhusen work with her on her Scene Five portion of the HG Story.  He has spent hours and hours patiently teaching her how to do animations and make her NPC’s walk, talk and come to life!

Sun made sure to check all her scripts and teleporters on AAcme City and at her FREEBIE store after the great move to a new servers hosting company (Great Canadian Grid).  She also visited her friends Kat and Lion Ewry’s new regions on GCG kayaking around and visited her friend, Kamira Sirnah’s completed Bath House and Temples.  Wowsa to both regions’ fanastic look!  She also went to the Drum Circle and the Market Day weekly events on the GCG The River Lands. There she learned how to gather essentials and bake bread.  Time permitting Sunbeam is planning on engaging in Role Play with tRL perhaps starting sometime in January 2016.  Smiles.

July Highs

July was a extremely hot month for my rl self, while my vr self saw ‘hawt’ things exploring the Metaverse.  Sun attended meetings, some cool parties and concerts (Mr. Mikie String and Torben Asp) and published a great issue of her VISIONZ magazine. She visited the Wizard of Oz (Kitely, Talia Sunsong)  and Alice in Wonderland (Franco, Cherry Manga)!  She also worked diligently on her contribution to the HG Story, Scene five. There were two tour groups who visited her beloved AAcme City in the month of July (HG Nights and HG Safari).  She also went to see her bff’s (Minethere Always) new huge 4×4 var region on Metropolis grid.  AND she won first place in a Kayak contest at the Grand Opening of Brantley No. 3 (Kitely, Ruby O’Degee).

Overall Sun had some really fun high times the first part of this summer.  Summer means sun and fun. Hope you’re haviing a wonderful Summer so far too!

Below is a slide show capturing some of her adventures.  Enjoy and always ‘Step in “Sunshine” with a happy attitude viewing your worlds with awe!

JUNE BLOOMS

June was filled with magical realism in Sunbeam’s virtual worlds.  Sun experienced many magical moments such as being a “Guest Guide” for the HG Tour group ‘Metaverse Tours‘,  The group visited Tangle grid’s Kling Kingdom, Aqualand on Metropolis and The River Lands on Great Canadian grid:

She was asked to be a guest on the INWORLD REVIEW TV show to talk about VISIONZ and AAcme City.  Inworld Review is  hosted by Mal Burns.

( since Sunbeam does not have a microphone she asked her VISIONZ Sr Editor and also a AAcme City shop owner, Avia Bonne to appear in her place ) .  She watched quietly below the stage area.

Sunbeam and AAcme also celebrated over 100 visitors who have come to see our beloved AAcme City and share our joy in driving around the magical roadways, fighting off the zombies and strolling along the boardwalk.

 

102 Visitors

Sun also enjoyed visiting with friends and family and going on many HG tours and trying out the new daredevil jump on our 2nd level roads and overall she had way too much FUN spreading Sunbeams.

“Crazy as a Loon’

My title reflects my insane laughter as I merrily skip from grid to grid making new friends and new promises! Another ‘slang’  phrase that comes to mind is ‘biting off more than I can chew’  or perhaps I just drink too much coffee…LOL

The month of May found Sun pretending she was a Movie Star when asked to be in Nara Malone and Fuchsia Nightfire’s 2nd tutorial video on “NPC” fun  , Sun also visited about two dozen grids, went on three HG tours, complied and published the 3rd Issue of VISIONZ magazine (38 pages woot), went to a couple of Metropolis’s 7th Birthday parties, partied at the Tangle grid’s Fashion Expo exhibit, worked on her Enchanted Village (Hidden Glenn region) on Tangle, started progress on a castle for her Fairytopia sim at SimValley grid, visited Kamis Haven  – The River Lands  – Cedar Point and Shoalwaters Bay  regions at her home grid of GCG, hooked up with her dear friends Lion and Kat Ewry and Daisy Coronet and DJTommy Seetan, had Balpien Hammerer visit AAcme City and ride the chopper and then declare it “an amazing build, had fun!” ,  added a couple new blogs to the Blogz “R” Us offices, and of course continued working on tweaking and creating AAcme City with her soul mate AAcme Fall.  Judy Muircastle specially scripted a couple of her awesome vehicles (The Chopper and the Bonnie and Clyde car) so that now anyone visiting AAcme City can rezz a ride and drive all around the 3×3 var (downtown area, country, beach, forest and mountains)  and we finished connecting our paved roads land level to the two story roads hovering above the city.  Phew!

Of course I took lots and lots of pictures which I will display here as slide show (40 images wow and I could added more ☻) instead of my typical laundry list of images 🙂

June looks to be just as busy for Sun. She is so excited to hold the first official VISIONZ magazine meeting now that we have official staff members! And on June 13th, Saturday, Sun is the ‘Guest Tour Guide’ for Metaverse Tours… hope you will join us.  I’ve chosen 3 regions on 3 different grids  hoping everyone will enjoy.  So stay tuned as Sun continues to be Crazy as Loon ha ha ha ha (insane laughter).

As always my valued friends and soon to be friends, Step in Sunshine, enjoying your time!

May Day May Day May

April was such a busy month on the RL Grid I for one am glad we have moved into the month of May!   AAcme City is now completely moved  on to a 3×3 var region on the Great Canadian Grid and Sunbeam has acquired two Fantasy regions (works in progress).  One called ‘Enchanted Village, Hidden Glen’ on the Tangle Grid and one called Fairytopia @ SV-66 on the SimValley Grid. More on those next post.

When not imagining great things that we should be creating and trying to create them,  then I’m  running around the Hypergrid space systems delighting in the awesome builds popping up like magic all over the place.   It’s gonna take forever and a day to see all the glorious things the metaverse has to offer.

Finally made it to a group tour (with Metaverse Tour) and got a couple snapshots.  Sunbeam always plan to go to these event, but somehow time slips away from me all too quickly. Next thing I know its the next day after and I missed everything I wanted to atttend.  Sometimes, like this week I was off running some errands that took twice as long as I believed and ~poof~ missed another tour.  Was really disappointed I missed the new WIP show put on by Serene Jewell and Selby Evans, hope to make it next time.  Sure wish someone would invent a ‘time travel’ code so I could pop back in the metaverse and rewind to any missed events.

After promising TeslaCoyel for weeks and trying in vain to HG to his home grid, the Atek Grid, Steam Punk City Sunbeam finally made it albeit without hair, skirt or shoes. I loved the City and the big ships and the imagination used to create the most wondrous metaverse Steampunk space.  Got myself a Landmark and plan to roam around again soon.

Stopped by to see my long time friend Peter Veliz (IamSambard Kingdom Brunel) who is very active on the Tangle Grid with Expo’s and his own region> Brunel Isle of Steam and the Brunel Museum of Steam. You have got to see his amazing steam engines and vehicles. Some of Peter’s items are built as exact duplicates (1/3 scale) of actual products on the rl grid.   A little birdie told me he does rl models of steam wonders and may put up a website soon.  Gosh, it’s been five or six years I’ve loved and admired Peter’s work and his sweet disposition.  I was thrilled to connect with Peter again after about a year or two since we last interacted.  Quite the family affair, his daughter, wife, niece, sisters (??? who knows who all else) have joined Peter in his favorite past-time torturing prims.

Of all the tours Sun missed we were totally thrilled to be part of the group that traveled over to the Tomb Raiders region on (grid.kitely.com:8002:Tomb Rider , temporarily on display hosted by Min Tigerpaw) created by the most talented artist Avia Bonne (Avia 3D Designs). Since it’s one of my favorite places to roam and get inspired I was excited to see it once again!  If you’re a lover of all things fantasy or you want to pretend you are Lara Croft herself then  jump on over and experience the thrill and joy of this very special region.

One early morning Sun popped into the Tangle Grid (residents mostly European time visits) and attended the ‘Meet and Greet’ with Isambard Kingdom Brunel.  Hooked up with my disco buddies Gary Kling and Leslie Kling and ended up with a second location for my  ‘Blogz R US’ (see separate page this Blog coming soon). Was amazed they still had the fantasy oar from the old Olantica grid where I had designed a fantasy region a couple years back.  Its was great to see Sarah Fairport, a very dear girl and true friend, and meet some new folks that call Tangle grid their home.  Sunbeam felt so welcomed!

The month of April has always been a lucky month for me as my previous blog stated  Sun attended an impromptu Dance Party at the Welcome center on Great Candian Grid (with awesome DJ Stormy Nights) and entered a Lotto drawing.  We walked away with $1,000 Maples WOOOT Hooooooooooooooo! New hair!

Party @ GCG

AAcme and I purchased a 3×3 var region to accomodate the growth and imagination we have for AAcme City’s future.  On 4/20 (yep I said 420… puff puff pass) our var was erected and on 4/27 our OARs were uploaded.  Well it did take two times for the OARs to come in correctly… but we couldn’t be happier with the new lands where we’ll now have a country area and forests surrounding our urban fantasy AAcme City.  Feel free to hop on the next ship heading our way and fly around to see all the improvements  coming soon.
