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

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!

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.

90 Days of AAcme City

Feeling guilty for not keeping up my blog! I read many blogs and love how they know just what to say with style and wit! and then I vow to ‘Add New Post’ to my own but keep getting sidetracked (rl gird and now building 3rg).  Today I joined a new google+ group ‘Virtual World Bloggers’ and felt compelled to finally blog again!

Since most of my online time has been spent building building building on our two regions in 3rd Rock Grid, AAcme City and AAcme City Southside, I decided to post some of the photos I’ve taken as we been building.   Come see us anytime and if you want to have a home or shop for FREE @AAcme City contact me here, google+, Facebook or inworld.

Step in Sunshine!
