“And one fine day, even if you tell me that it was all a dream, I’d still smile, teary eyed, knowing that I spent an entire lifetime in it”
Good morning and happy almost Friday!
I finally made a picture for the Epiphany and I’m happy to share it with you today. The event has opened since the 15th and the creations are more than I can count and wonderful. If you haven’t visited yet, you have the weekend coming up so save some money as you’ll definitely need it!
I’m showcasing the gorgeous skybox MINIMAL made for the event along with the releases from Valentina, RAMA and Zenith. Also, the skin is from Glam Affair, currently available at Collabor88 and the shape is included!

Here’s also all the necessary information about The Epiphany:
Am I at the beach? Nope…Not really at least. Virtually I’m SO there.
I’m hoping this will be a quiet weekend. I’ve been working so hard the past few months, so now I feel exhaustion all over my body and mind. Today will also be the day I will know if I leave for vacation or not. I know it’s something I’ve been looking forward to, and need, big time, but it’s not entirely up to me unfortunately.
Anyways, last night, I read Kess’ poston SL Blogger Support blog and I really liked it. I could totally relate to everything she wrote. I believe every blogger/blogger manager and designer/sponsor should read it. It’s something I’ve been thinking a lot about writing recently, but I blame my poor english! I’m so glad someone more fluent in it, did it and did it well.
Only thing I would like to add to all that is, the lack of support from designers to their bloggers. Kessis right, designers don’t spend time to meet their bloggers, which is understandable considering all the time they spend on designing and promoting, but the way I see it, if you choose your blogger team, you’re proud of it and you trust in it to make a good job and showcase your products well, least you can do is promote your bloggers work as well. Most of the designers, have websites. Whether it’s flickr, or just a simple blog, I would expect all of them to have a section there, with their blogger team, their info, flickr pages and blogs. That way you get mutual support from both sides and would start to feel more like a collaboration than just work or advertising.
I have so so much to add to this whole story as well, and hopefully I’ll make a post about it soon. For now I believe Kess said it all. I’m a new blogger so I haven’t had tons of experience yet, but for the few months I’ve been doing it, I can tell for sure that blogging can be a fun thing to do, when you have a cool designer sponsoring you, trusting you and looking forward to seeing what you come up with, without telling you what to do all the time or it can be a huge chore, where the pictures are biased, the quality is bad and the result is just another vendor image. I think both cases are legit, it all comes down to what you like and you’re on board with. We know what we’re getting ourselves into. We can’t expect designers to ask for less, only thing we can do is stop and let someone else do it if we realize we can’t.
