About bluisthenewblack

I'm a Second Life Avatar who loves talking anything photography. I'm what I call a classic "WIP" Work-in-Progress. I'm trying to "hone" my skills in PhotoShop and by challenging myself with GREAT designers within Second Life this gives me a greater ability to showcase their designs as well as make myself a better photographer, blogger and help keep my purse strings a little more closed these days. *grins* As a side note I have been on Flickr for some time. I just recently decided to Blog as a way to further develop and highlight the smaller items sometimes missed in bigger pictures. https://www.flickr.com/photos/132125807@N06/

~Crab Kindgom~

Hi Everyone!  So I love all things Summer (minus the bugs) but I saw this little set from HEXtraordinary and I knew I just had to blog it.  I’m originally from Maryland and crabs are a part of the lifestyle up there.  My family, when I was younger, would meet up and do crab boils and beer and this was all before I was 10.  Yes we drank, ate, were in the sun and I loved every minute of those get-togethers.  So this was me reminiscing of the summer of years past…with a little fun thrown in.

Hi Everyone!  It’s been a few days I know.  I’ve cut back on my blogging a bit to help slow things down.  I’m kinda a small details person and I feel that when I rush I miss a lot of things that I don’t when I go slower.  So, with that I’ve drawn back on some of the folks I blog for hoping that I like what I put out vs. having the feeling “I gotta put it out”.  Blogging is about Designers you love, and items you love and I just don’t like feeling rushed.

So…let’s get to this shall we?

Hi Everyone!  *sips her much needed coffee*  This morning I woke up super early and I couldn’t go back to sleep.  So, I got out of bed and decided to write up my blog.  Today’s outfit is what I’d call a cute picture.  You all know I struggle with that but the outfit I thought called for it.  I still struggle…the STRUGGLE is real.

Hi Everyone!  So I wanted to do something a little sweet for my friends who are recognized as LGBT.  This little number just told me, do something sweet, a bit hot, and something to commemorate the strides we’ve made over the years.

Love is a beautiful thing.  When you find it and with the right person it can last forever.
