Question: What lead to your becoming a sponsor this year?
Answer: It’s such an important cause, so when I heard about it was more than happy to jump on board.  I would think everyone has been impacted in one way or another during the course of their lives and should join in the fight to help finding a cure in whatever way they can.

Q: Tell us what inspires your creations.
A: It varies on the time of year, the seasons, my mood…lol but usually veers toward the feminine or girlie girl stuff.  Mostly I just make items that I would like to wear myself.  You can’t please everyone, so might as well at least enjoy wearing your own creations.

Q: How do you keep up with the latest trends in Second Life? How have any major changes in second life affected your business?
A: I love change and the challenge of learning new things.  Changes aren’t something I feel to be kept up with but a welcomed inspiration that otherwise, without, would probably leave me feeling stagnant or bored.

Q: Any advice to any other budding business owners in second life?
A: Yes, do what you like, everyone’s tastes are so varied, you’ll never appeal to them all.  Stay true to yourself and do what makes you stop and say….yeah…. I like that when its done 🙂  And don’t be afraid to ask others for help.

Q: Tell us about your shop or display at the 2016 Blossoms Of Hope Showcase for MSABC. Any new and exciting items you are bringing? Are you participating in the Blossoms of Hope hunt?
A: Yes, there’s a little micro mini skirt with matching tube top & boots, a girl need boots in the fall!!  Then a crop top & matching skirt with sequin trim.

Q: What is something we can look forward to in 2017 from you?
A: hmmm…. I don’t know yet.  Just doing my thing day to day on here, hope we both like it when its done 🙂
