Sneak Peek the Hair Fair gifts.  This is going to be my final act for the day.  Then I'm going to see if I can navigate the 20 feet to the bedroom and find the bed.  At this point I'm 50/50 on if it's worth the trouble and could just end up sleeping on the floor curled up next to my fluffy orange boy. (My cat! My cat! Don't be getting any funny ideas. At least he doesn't snore.)

I've got two gifts - one for the men and one for the women - and since we can only put out one goodie box they're wrapped up together.
Behold! The gift box!  I even created the textures for it which is no small feat when you feel the onset of blind panic.
I was going to be a complete cow and just show little snippet pictures but right now I'm too tired to even moo so I figured I'd just post the images.  This one above is for the women. I thought I'd point that out in case anyone was confused on the issue which is entirely possible.  This is SL we're talking about afterall.  It's called Lady Antonella and you'll find the colors pictured above which is Abyss (black) and Cosmos (blond).

Meet Darby.  That's the name of the men's gift. Freaky (blond) and Abyss (black) are the colors that will be found in the box and speaking of colors...things are starting to turn into shades of yellow periodically so either my eyes have developed jaundice in the past 5 minutes or it's time to head out. I'm going with the latter at the moment because it's less work and I'll worry about the former tomorrow. :P

What's coming up

"Whaddya mean there's no coffee?"
This is how I'm feeling at the moment and you know it's a bad sign when you wander aimlessly around the house, not quite sure what you're looking for. I knew I was in trouble when I found myself in the bathroom to get a coffee cup.

A lot of things have popped up in the past 24's amazing how many things can come at you all at once (all in a good way) but I'm beginning to feel a little overwhelmed.  Okay...that's a lie. I'm feeling a LOT overwhelmed but I'll get over it. (That reminds me...I forgot to pick up more 'liquid sedative' when I was out yesterday - I'm taking Bubbles' advice to heart :P)  A couple of opportunities have come up for me; one is immediate, the other is a long-haul kinda project but one that's just too intriguing to say 'no' too.

I'm currently working on getting the men's Hair Fair gift done.  I've done the women's and I'll post a couple of pics when I get those all completed.  I hope everyone likes it....personally I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out but then not everyone has the same tastes.

I also plan to post some teasers of the Hair Fair stuff but, again, time has a way of getting away from you so depending on how close it is to Hair Fair I may end up just posting the full images.

Once the Hair Fair stuff is done I'll have some new releases.  I actually made something like 10 new hair (not sure about the actual number sitting in my inventory) for Hair Fair including one for auction in case that happened but it looks like it's not soooooo..... I'll get those out once the dust has settled on everything else which should be the beginning of September.

After that....we'll see what I can get at.  I had certain projects I wanted to finish to get out but things have changed somewhat so now there's a reorganizing of priorities and some frantic building.  But if we didn't get these surprising little irregularities pop up things would be pretty boring.  Right? ;)

Hair Fair Bandana Day

Ugh. I've started this post 6 times and have ended up hitting the backspace key to erase everything. Apparently I need more coffee....or sleep. Something. At least it's cooled off and I no longer feel like I'm sleeping on the inside of a clothes dryer. I feel there's a nap in my future.

The hair I'm working on is driving me nuts so I thought I'd take a detour to the blog to do a post on the bandanas I've created.  I've done 6 - 4 women's, 2 men's but two of them could be unisex. So without further preamble, here they are:
Hairoin - Bad Dog
Hairoin - Elegant Goth Bandana
Hairoin - Grandma's Shawl
Hairoin - Red Feathered Bandana
Hairoin - Roses & Clover
Hairoin - Skull Bandana
 Bandana Day takes place on September 19th but they'll be for sale throughout the duration of Hair Fair. Remember that all proceeds from the sale of these bandanas goes to Wigs for Kids so find your favorite designer or just bandanas you like and grab them.  All the bandanas at Hair Fair (not just mine) are transfer, modify, NO copy.

And thus it begins...

Today is the opening of the Hair Fair Flickr contest. Woohoo!! This is one of my favorite parts of Hair Fair. I love browsing through all the pictures and seeing all those wonderfully creative and beautiful shots people submit.

Many already know about the contest but for those who don't here's the skinny:
- The contest runs from August 1st - 22nd
- Anyone can enter and you can follow this link for the rules Click Here
- You'll need a Flickr account if you don't already have one

There's a lot of prizes to be had (a listing of the contributors is at the end of the rules) and you can submit up to 8 entries but make sure they are the entries you want to submit because you can't swap them out after they've been submitted or you'll be disqualified. Keep it clean and your only limitation is imagination. Have fun and good luck!! I look forward to viewing the entries. :)
