Home for Christmas Hunt Starts Today!

Did you score some great shopping deals yesterday during Black Friday? I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday as well. The winter season is probably the busiest time for gridwide hunts in SecondLife, and SFW is participating in several this year. The Home for Christmas Hunt runs from 11/24/2012 – 12/24/2012 and is being run by The Cookie Jar. Each gift item will cost L$1

Product Release: Mesh Wooden Plant Stands

The last of everyone’s fall produce is starting to show up at the local Farmers’ Markets, and nothing does a better job of displaying it for easy shopping than these wooden plant stands. 100% mesh and a scant 1 prim each, these rustic stands also work great in barns or greenhouses.

Product Release: Ladder Shelves

I was looking around Pinterest the other day and I came across a ladder shelf which I really loved, but I didn’t love the USD$299 price tag! I decided to model one myself, and now you can have them for your home or office too. They come in three different shades and have the soft ambient shadows built in, so they will hold all your treasures with style.

Store remodel is finished!

It’s been over 1 1/2 years since SFW Industries was first launched, and I’m pleased to say that business is doing well. I’ve been carefully tending it with a tightly focused business strategy, which includes regular product releases, and finally the store is regularly covering it’s own tier (plus a little extra for R&D activities). The old building came with the land when I purchased it early in 2011. It was a simple brick structure with a minimal layout, originally designed to be a residential structure. Making changes to the architecture was one of my first lessons in how the permissions system works in SL when objects are transferred. I immediately deleted everything I considered non-essential, as I needed every prim I could get and I had not yet purchased the extra parcels in the region across the street. Original SFW Industries building, 2011 Earlier in the year I was starting to get bored with the business’s inworld presence and I began idly considering moving the whole works to a rental location on a managed estate, to further reduce my monthly costs and increase overall profit.… Read the restSFW Industries, Front

Product Release: Tekno Office Chairs

I’ve been working on some pretty neato projects lately and I’m very happy to show you my latest creation: the Tekno Office Chair. I’m extremely pleased at how they turned out. If you know me, you know I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist, so I couldn’t let these go until I had the perfect shadowing and five fun upholstery colors. The most amazing thing is — wait for it — I managed to keep them to just 1 prim equivalent each! How exactly I did that I have no idea, but if you want to see them for yourself, stop by the shop. As always, you can click the image to jump directly to that product listing on Marketplace, or buy the item in-world here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Dokkaebi/210/152/75/

Product Release: Mesh Single Wall Shelves

They say that one of the best ways to maximize your space is to organize vertically instead of horizontally, and this handy little shelf will help you do just that. It’s 100% mesh and only takes up 1 prim, includes the nice soft background shadow, and comes in two flavors of wood. Its also mod/copy, so you can duplicate it for every room in your house. If you need something to put on those shelves, check the row of mesh books (pictured), also only 1 prim.

The Great Melting Pot Hunt begins today!

This one should be good. Another fine hunt administered by Gina Redangel, of Redangel Hunts, this gridwide hunt centers around the the unique multicultural roots that come together inside of SecondLife. I expect to see some really creative, ethnically-inspired gifts on this hunt and I will certainly be doing the hunt myself when I return from my trip!

The “Swimming Pool Blues” Hunt starts today!

When I first heard about the “Swimming Pool Blues” hunt, I was intrigued about the challenge of creating a hunt gift which both fit the color scheme and was worthy of the price of L$5. I’ve been learning how to create mesh models so I used this as another learning experience (I figured out how to bake ambient occlusions, if that means anything to you, and I’ve been going a little AO crazy lately.) The beautiful photography in the frames comes from Elena Kalis, whom I found on Flickr. Her work is Creative Commons licensed, so I was able to use it in this piece. Her work is dreamy and breathtaking, and I highly encourage you to check out the rest of her photostream. Anyway, Mauricette Morane has handpicked a select list of 24 participating locations so you should come away with a great collection of gifts from this hunt. Enjoy!

Headed out on vacation/holiday

I’ll be leaving tonight for a family vacation/holiday into the deep woods, over 8 hours away. Internet connection will be scarce to say the least, so I won’t be logging into SecondLife between August 9th-20th. All IMs are set to go to my email, but if you have questions please feel free to email me directly: liya.caedmon@gmail.com.

Product Release: Cafe Table & Chair Set

Howdy folks, here’s another hunt item that has gone on sale at SL Marketplace and in the SFW Main ground store. This is a great little set to use in a virtual coffeeshop, restaurant, or business or educational meeting area. Or just put it in your home or office! It’s copy/mod so you can fill a whole room with them, and the chair comes preloaded with six general-purpose animations to cover most casual situations.

Product Release: Ladies’ Urban Pants

I’ve been meaning to finish these pants up for a long time. They are a great fashion staple, and their low-waisted, buttoned style makes them work with all the trendier tops — especially the new mesh tops that are coming on the market. They are also perfect for when you want to look a little bit smarter than jeans (and don’t we all have dozen of jeans in our inventory already??)

Product Release: Ladies’ Mesh Metro Vests

A new mesh-based ladies’ top, called the “Metro Vest”, was just released this week, both on SL Marketplace and in the LOFT store. Remember, the LOFT is being remodeled, so things may look a little wonky. This is SFW’s first experiment with releasing clothing that adheres to the popular “Standard Sizing” system, and I am anxious to see how it’s received. Standard Sizing has it’s pros and cons, with very strong opinions on either side of the fence, but from a business standpoint it makes sense for SFW. You can get copies of the Standard Sizing shapes for free from Marketplace, or for your convenience I’ve copied the information notecard that is packaged with it onto a post in this blog.

What is “Standard Sizing”?

With the rising popularity of rigged mesh clothing and accessories, we have discovered that it is difficult for shoppers to be sure that designers are creating mesh clothing in sizes that will suit their avatar shapes.  Likewise, it is impossible for designers to know how to size their rigged mesh clothing because of the extremely wide range of shapes used in Second Life.  In response, we have developed a solution: the Standard Sizing system.  The following questions and answers will inform you about the details of this system and hopefully encourage designers to implement it and consumers to take advantage of it.… Read the rest

Product Release: July 4th Lily Planter

I was in the mood for a little decorating today, so I started looking on Marketplace for some seasonal decorations to show my enthusiasm for the upcoming holiday. I couldn’t really find anything I liked, so I made something instead. You can find this new item at the SFW Main Store right by the front entrance, just right click and select “Buy” to purchase.

Feeling the love

“Forget Me Not” Hunt starts today!

I don’t know what it’s like where you are right now, it’s scorching here, and it’s not even the afternoon yet when the temperature tends to peak. Makes me thankful for our air conditioning, even though it kills any motivation I have to leave the house. This is ironic, because the theme of the Forget Me Not Hunt is “What is the last thing on your mind when you leave the house?”  For me, I’m always forgetting to turn off my electronics, including lights, so I created a new light fixture for this hunt. The Forget Me Not Hunt runs the entire month of July, and has 45 locations participating — none of them are adult oriented.
