Generous, talented people

This should have been posted Monday, 10/27

The generosity of Second Lifers never ceases to amaze me. A week ago Saturday, I was in the Bliss Couture main store when I was addressed by a woman who wanted to tp me to a store (where she worked) which sold beautiful dresses, skins & jewelry. When I communicated my thought that it seemed a little unethical to solicit customers in someone else's shop, she moved on to another customer. So I reported the conversation to Amutey Decuir, the owner of Bliss Couture. I figured, hey, wouldn't I want to know if someone was solicting my customers? To my surprise, Amutey responded with a thank you and a gift of her "Goddness Collection" - 7 very cute dresses. I am only commenting now because I am cleaning inventory...

And I have very clever friends, too. A while back, I contracted with Cas for a hat box to use as a tip vehicle and she responded with very cute striped hat boxes that she did not put bows on because she is so fussy she had not seen anything she liked. Well, yesterday she surprised me with another hat box and a new striped one - and they both have bows. YAY!!! my task today is to move my tip script to the hat boxes so I can use them rather than the ugly one I have been using for months.

The other night I told another friend that I had been looking for just the right Japanese benches for Linri's for months, he offered to make one for me! It is perfect - a simple Japanese Zen bench. The seat is gently curved, as if it has been used for a long time and looks so comfy. Only 3 prims and perms so I can tint the bench as need be. How generous he is.

I sometimes wish there was some way I could thank these wonderful people in a very special way, but I am neither creative nor artistic. So I will just have to offer sincere thank yous.

Pfui. "Neither creative nor artistic" my pixellated behind. Anyone who's ever had the privilege of dancing in one of your choreographed dances knows that you are both of those things. In spades. Ain't gonna let you put down my friends when I'm around, not even when the friend is you yourself.

You are so sweet, Creag. Hugs!

As a reference for your readers I posted a picture of your hatboxes on my site.

I second Creag! Dance is absolutely your artistic expression.
