My New Baby Doll

Well, my whole adventure as a baby doll this weekend has prompted me to write a children's story called, My New Baby Doll. I hope you get an opportunity to read it. It will be available in the online game of Second Life for free and in real life for just a few dollars. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed making it.
Enjoy Life!

Pictures of my Baby Doll Adventure

Baby Doll Viv with Friends.

Baby Doll Viv on the Beach

Baby Doll Viv relaxing in your heart. Awwwww.

I love these trunks! These are baby doll trunks. Sweet.


For the baby doll in all of us

Okay, if this was not an adventure I simply don't know what one is. Today, I took a class in the online game of Second Life. The class taught me how to use the software qavimator. Well, actually, I knew how to use it before but the class taught me how to use it correctly. It was a GREAT class. We not only created animations but we learned how to put them in scripts. It was really wonderful. I still can't believe how much I have learned in Second Life for FREE.

Anyway, after learning how to make animations and scripts for eating doughnuts, I just had to go to the place that gave us the doughnuts. The place ended up being for little people called, Tiny people. You had to be tiny to fit into the shops. A few friends caught up with me and they taught me how to become a Baby doll. Now that too was a new adventure. We ended up going all over because I wanted to be a cute baby doll with cute clothes Any excuse to shop will do.

There are so many shops with really wonderful baby doll clothes. I really had a grand time playing dress up. It was like dressing up a baby doll. To be honest with you I never really played dress up as a child. I found nothing wrong with taking the baby doll to the baby sitter and they did that sort of thing. I was a child that like to play, go to work!

Enjoy Life!

Everything will be kk

In the online game of Second Life it is not uncommon for avatars to end a sentence with, "kk". Somtimes "kk" is the sentence. Someone will ask a question, "I'm gonna be right back, kk?" or maybe someone will tell the other avatar what they are getting ready to do, "I'm gonna be away from the computer", and a response might be. "kk". What does "kk" mean? It simply means okay. There are many words abbreviated in Second Life but I think "kk" is rather cute.

In real life and in second life I constantly hear people complain about money. To be sure, I am complaining about it too but I think if we just hang in there things will change for the better. Here is to hoping things turn around for the better real soon. kk

Tamra Sands

I am so excited my friend, Tamra Sands sang today. If you haven't heard her sing in Second Life I hope you will. She was streaming live from New York. You may have seen Tamra Sands aka Tamra Hayden, on Broadway, as that is where she has been in many productions. Go Tamra! I'll put some of her songs up for you to hear. You might want to go to the bottom of the blogs and see the You tube video of her performance in Second Life.

Enjoy Life!


I met Torin yesterday. He was such a kind soul. Evidently the last animation I was in put me in the sitting position. As I walked around the online game, Second Life, I had no idea I was still in the sitting position. Kind Torin told me and gave me something to fix the situation. Thanks and safe paths Torin!

My Second Life Photos

I enjoy taking pictures in the online Second Life. I found this wonderful place to do so. It's so big that I have gone several times and still have not finished exploring. Above are a few snaps I took today.

Books by Melissa Mayhue

I simply had the most fun last night. I was invited to sit in on a "pitch" session. I met the most extraordinary people. These established writers were so kind to invite me and the conversation was intelligent, witty, and humorous. This writers group was very supportive and kind. Wow, what a great way to spend the evening? I was so inspired and can't wait to read their books.

Cute Little Bakery

It's raining outside and I love snuggling up by the fire with the one I love. He must love me because he listens to my stories with his full attention. He loves to discuss my stories and it makes me feel great that he loves me and takes time to be engaged with what I like to do.

No rain in the online game of Second Life. I am always inspired by the lovely things I find there. Today I traveled to a medieval bakery. I enjoyed visiting. I just had to buy the soup. On a day like today, how could I resist?

Enjoy Life!

I Love My Sorors

Sorors, I want all of you to know how much you mean to me. I never want to miss an opportunity to express it. Your unconditional kindness is appreciated. Thank you for all you do.

So True, So True

There comes a point in your life when you realize:

Who matters,

Who never did,

Who won't anymore...

And who always will...

So, don't worry about people from your past,
There's a reason why they didn't make it to your future..
Be kinder than necessary.... Because everyone you meet IS fighting some kind of battle.


I told you I love kitchen stuff. I went to A&W kitchen today and was very pleased. The kitchen stuff is fabulous but these pots caught my eye. Burgundy is my favorite color so I loved that right away but what I didn't realize was that these pots have wonderful sound effects too. The frying pan sounds like it's frying up some food and the pots sound like something is boiling. You know, I love the creative artists in the online game of Second Life.

Enjoy Life!

I Love this!! You know I love kitchen items so there is no surprise that I would love this. The doors really open and everything! Oh, I am such a kid, I know, but I really enjoy playing in the online game of Second Life. Go Vintage and....

Enjoy Life!

The Wonder Book

Wow! I just had a great time with Doobie. My friend Julia told me about this new kind of book in Second Life called, Wonder Book. I went over and purchased it and I am having a great time putting it together. They are really great books.

Japanese Food

Today I went to Kitchen Korner. It is rapidly becoming a favorite of mine. Please look for Karamel Madison, featured on my Fabulous Artist in Second Life blog.
I had lunch with Marsh. The food was incredible and I ended up ordering out for Real. You have to go check out Kitchen Korner. Not only is it fun but the attention to detail is marvelous.

My Little Teapot

Okay, this is more my speed. I love anything kitchen! I got a new tea set today and I Love it. It was made by Karamel Madison. I think her creations are wonderful. I hope to feature her on my Fabulous Second Life Artists blog soon.

I couldn't wait to bring it back to My Little Shop. I know it will look great in Nana's Noshes too.

It's the little things that make me happy and....

Enjoy Life!

Out of this world

One of the first things I learned was how much people really care about Star Trek! This was a labor intense museum. They really care about what they do as it's evident in the work I saw.

I also learned I'm not engaged by anything mechanical. It was all Greek to me. I did like the little kitty cat on the ledge. Great touch!

Oh, I got to sit in the captains chair. Thrilling as that was, I say, "Heavy is the head that sits in that seat".

I do recall seeing some Star Trek stuff on television and this room looked inspired by it.

This was a great little Star Trek reading room. I'm sure that's not what they call it but that's what it looked like to me.

Great effects all throughout the museum.

I enjoyed the time spent with everyone and the lessons learned about Star Trek. Hope you go and....
Enjoy Life!

Moving on Up!

Thanks to the generosity of Selina, I have a new place. There are more people to meet, events to plan and I'm excited about it all. I'll see you all there.

Enjoy Life!

Coffee Time

Yes, it was coffee time in the online game, Second Life. I am having a wonderful time decorating Nana's Noshes. I knew I would because I love this kind of stuff. As I was creating others came by to chat. It was wonderful meeting people. I find that language can be an obstacle at times. In a matter of minutes, there was seven languages in the air. Second Life is so diverse. You meet people from all over the world. I love that! What I find lovely is that even though there is a language barrier, kindness is universal.

I enjoyed telling them what I was working on and they were eager to show me their creations. The more I see, the more I smile at the great artists that find their way here. I still think Second Life is a wonderful outlet for artists.

I must get back to my coffee and playing with my ideas. Maybe you too will grab a cup of coffee and continue to....

Enjoy Life!

I Too, Marvel

Yet Do I Marvel

I doubt not God is good, well-meaning, kind

And did He stoop to quibble could tell why

The little buried mole continues blind,

Why flesh that mirrors Him must some day die,

Make plain the reason tortured Tantalus

Is baited by the fickle fruit, declare

If merely brute caprice dooms Sisyphus

To struggle up a never-ending stair.

Inscrutable His ways are, and immune

To catechism by a mind too strewn

With petty cares to slightly understand

What awful brain compels His awful hand.

Yet do I marvel at this curious thing:

To make a poet black, and bid them sing!

Piano Club

Now, I don't go to clubs in the online game of Second Life but this is a club of a friend of mine. It is amazing! This lovely creation is in the sky and the whole club is a grand piano! Pictured above is the piano club and on the right is the entrance. The pieces of music on the ground are an added touch of elegance. Speaking of which, be sure to wear your formal attire when you go.

Enjoy !

Cherry Tree Swing

Julia Hathor made this swing. I absolutely love it! Today I sat in her Serenity Falls Gardens and indeed it was named correctly. If you have the opportunity to play the online Second Life, do go by and you too will enjoy the serenity. I am continuing to write, The Adventures of Viv Writer, and it has been wonderful to create in this environment.

While you are visiting Serenity Falls, you must say hello to The Raven :)

Enjoy Life!

Even More

Well, it's another fine day in the online game of Second Life. I am enjoying it even more now. I couldn't believe my sorors are in the game. They are a true joy. As we continue to celebrate over 100 years of service and sisterhood, I am proud to be an AKA Lady. I know I will enjoy getting to know all my sorors. Just something else to love about the online game of Second Life. Yes, I will continue to....

Enjoy Life!

Playing Around

What fun I had today! I love to visit with Sue. If I could only play like that in real life. Well, we are all given talents. Sue has not only been blessed with musical talents but also the gift of treating people like they matter. Not everyone does that.
Anyway, I hope you visit her sim and that you too feel the warmth of her kindness.
I gotta get back to my piano playing now. I love to get swept away in the music. Hope you will too.
Enjoy Life!

I Love My Friends!

What I love most about the online game of second life, aside from the freedom to create, are my friends. I love my friends! I love sharing stories and spending time with you. I have met so many people that are kind and a pleasure to talk to.
It is still raining and I am still enjoying it. Rain is symbolic of many things but today rains means "new life" will begin soon. Spring will be here soon and the new and freshness of all that season brings, will be embraced.
I love that you can visit a variety of sims that are seasonal. Today I went to all four seasons. That was great! Ahhhh, I just love life! Please go out there and....

Enjoy Life!
