Starting October 15 are two hunts that builders will enjoy, and a Tiny Swagtastic weekend.

USC Textures Hunt

The weekend of the 15th-16th only at USC Textures.  The theme is “where the wild things are”. Eagle often puts on fun themed hunts, and has bunches of MM boards and lucky chairs about. And he puts up with me!

USC Textures is located at:

I have had a little shop upstairs in the Texture Tomb ever since I was a small otter on Miriam’s coat tails and put all 12 of my plant textures up for sale in her garden shop. Now I have a fun corner shop of my very own in the upper level.

So for this hunt I made a set of vine textures that I think will be useful for landscaping and adding a bit of wildness to builds.

Full Perm Mini Hunt

Also starting on the 15th is the Full Perm Mini Hunt which will run till 31 October.  These mini hunts are always fun, and a very nice way to stock up on building supplies. There will be a charge of 1L per hunt item.  For this one I made some seamless berry bush textures (and one berry-less) for non-alpha bush and hedgy uses, or wherever one might need some non-alpha greenery.

Tiny Swagtastic Weekend 15-16 Oct

Tiny stuff! For those who haven’t realized it, I’m usually NOT human. I am usually a tiny otter.  Which can be the cause of much hilarity for new customers “You’re the shop owner!?! But you’re a tiny otter in a… is that a Lady GaGa outfit?!”

However, if one heads over to Raglan Shire normal size humans are considered outside the norm. This weekend is another Tiny Swagtastic weekend in Raglan Shire with 50L offerings for tinies. My friend Mutley is kind enough to let me put stuff at her store Pawesome in Raglan Shire, and I got myself together enough this week to make an autumn tree with 3 seats for tinies in a small patch of dried grass.


Latest stuff that is useful for the season: pumpkins and cats! And not just any pumpkins or simple cats, nonono.

Check out this punkin set – not just a nifty 1 prim pumpkin with stem, but also 2 pumpkins of the same size in 1 prim, 2 pumpkins of different sizes in 1 prim and 6 different texture colors because I always get carried away with textures…

Sculpted Pumpkins

And the new kittys! Thane is back (yay!!) and within minutes of his arrival he uploaded this fun cat sculpt that I just fell in love with and had to start texturing right away. The body language! The funny hat! I made 3 different textures for these 1 prim cats with hats, and these black cats have the same blinky green eyes as the other black cats – so 3 prims all in all.

Thane and I have lots of joint projects out where he makes the sculpt and I do the texturing – you can tell our joint stuff by the two logos on the sign, and they are all named *RH* & DBS

Cats Wearing Hats

Thane Woodford is the owner of Raven’s Heart Sculpts.  He has a lovely shop at:

We are rarely organized enough to have a sale of our items – so now is a good time to stock up on bulding supplies!

A short while ago I had a crazy hankering to set up shop in Caledon. Of course I would be lonely if it was just me, so I dragged Miriam Donogal of TexWorks and Tigger Genira of TiggerWorks along as well! We found a lovely plot in Port Caledon, and Tigger made a build that fits right in with the area and accommodates our stuff nicely.

Here is a fun pic of Tig and I  – doesn’t she look happy to have me sitting on her?

I love being in Caledon – everyone has been SO nice! We have lovely neighbors, and I have had the pleasure of meeting the Guvnah himself! So please, come by and join in the fun and bickering.
