It's the end of the world as we know it...

... And I feel fine. We survived the apocalypse, the Armageddon  the end of the world. We're still here, and it was a blast, or was it? Anyway up to the next versions of Armageddon coming in 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2024, 2028, 2029, 2038, 2047, 2060, and 2076. So we have some great parties coming up the next couple of years.

With Love... For Sway


This last week I have been spending some time hunting for lovely items in The With Love Hunt. In this hunt you can find some awesome items, like amazing dresses, accessories, skins, and even some pieces of furniture! I am about halfway myself as I'm not dedicating all my time to finding the items in the hunt. So I still have a little way to go. For anyone still wanting to do the hunt, There are 73 boxes containing a product worth 400L or more, and they will be for sale at 10L in each participating store. The hunt will run until the end of the month, December 31st.

This post isn't completely about The With Love Hunt, though. During this week I found a link on my login screen of my Firestorm Viewer for another event, Together for Sway. This is a charity event for an SL designer:

Sway Dench has been a fixture in Second Life for years. She creates some of the cutest furniture and decor, and is famous for her Cookie Bears. Recently she learned that there is a benign tumour in her brain, and in 6 to 8 weeks, she will undergo surgery to have it removed. While our dear Sway will make it through this, unfortunately her finances may not. She will be out of commission for nearly 6 months, and her inworld store is her only source of income.

Together for Sway was created to help this sweet woman deal with her time in need.

Various Designer have banded together, and will set out their items (new or otherwise) all in the same venue. 100% of the profits will go directly to Miss Dench.

I have had a peek at this venue and found some marvellous items there, even from some of my favourite designers. In the pictures below you will find various items from both the With Love hunt as Together for Sway. In the credit I will this time also credit the decor because nearly everything in the pictures comes from one of these events.
