This is one of my favorite colors in the world. So when I typed in “moss” in my inventory I was shocked to find only a couple of items. What I did have was some lovely mossy rocks. Now there’s nothing like a hike over the craggy peaks!
At a girl’s youth camp this summer I was teaching the kids about orienteering and doing compass courses, etc. The girls could not believe that I could figure out where we needed to go by looking at the sun, at my little spinning dial and at moss on trees. Where I live moss grows primarily on the north side of trees and rocks, since it gets the most shade. They were astounded—but completely excited when they figured out how to do it, too. Fun times.

Much of the US has been having a terrible heat wave, so I popped into SL for some hair that does NOT frizz in the humidity, jewelry that does NOT become rusted and clammy, and shoes that are not flip flops can be worn! I took my photos today at the wonderful Belle Bayou, by Lily Ixtar, who definitely knows what hot and humid looks like!!!

Today is my RL birthday and so it’s time for a big confession:
Sometimes I get really sick of taking pictures of myself.
Not that I don’t love blogging—I do, it is such a great learning experience and I absolutely love SL Fashion. I have also learned how much work it is to do high quality work. Most of all I have loved getting to know other bloggers and designers. I am not that great at putting together looks and backgrounds and what-have-you, and avatar adjustment is absolutely NOT my forte. But I feel like it’s okay, because it’s really about the people and the fashion, right? And eventually I will learn to do it better. In fact, one friend couldn’t believe the pictures for today were really of me. And guess what? They’re not.
This week, I asked some friends if they would be my models so I didn’t have to take pictures of myself—happy birthday to me. Today we have my girl Gypsy. She is great pal and is always ready to drop everything and pose if I need a model. That’s not easy to find in SL! Not to mention everything she puts on is amazing. Gypsy has done shoots with me before, but for this shoot I said “do whatever you want, I am just taking the pictures!” And in true Gypsyan fashion, she hit it out of the ballpark.
