MadPea at the Arcade

… Listen to the tree; it tells you where it wants to go ~John Naka …

I’m thrilled to share my first post as a blogger for MadPea!!  I’ve been a fan of their interactive games, immersive hunts and quality products since the first time I stumbled upon them in world nearly four years ago.  If you haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing one of their productions before, I can not encourage you enough to check them out.  Today though, I want to focus on their new release for The Arcade.  Most of the grid is aware (if not addicted) to this unique quarterly event and I’m no different.  The allure of the gatcha machines, exclusive items for barely any L$ and the thrill of collecting sparks something in most of us.  MadPea has produced Bonsai Madness for this round of The Arcade and these little trees are stunning.

At just one to three prim a piece, the quality of these little trees is beyond compare and each has its own unique look complete with pot.  With sixteen to collect including two tall rares with glittering trunks, there’s certain to be a size and shape to fit into any decor.  As if that wasn’t enough, they contain an extra delight for the ears as well as the eyes.

When two bonsai of a kind meet, they will share the most wonderful moment of song and a soft aura will mark them as a pair.  I couldn’t hope to capture the beauty of this creation but I do hope you’ll get an idea of how stunning these bonsai are from what I could share.  At just 50L$ a try, this is a gotcha machine that everyone should be certain to hit a few times.

I hope you enjoy your own Bonsai Madness as much as I am delighting in mine.  There’s still time to try your luck at The Arcade or to perfect your cam skills and shop from The Galley.

…The dream that you wish will come true…

So… its been a while.  I’m not the kind of person who typically shares my real life details with those in my Second Life.  This is both for my own safety and because I don’t believe anyone will actually care.  In this case however, after being gone for almost three months, I felt this time it was warranted.  I made commitments to blog for a designer and an event just before I disappeared and I was not able to fulfill those promises as promptly or completely as I would have liked.  I’d like to think that I have a good reason for this though.  The fact is, I’m pregnant.

Expecting Announcement

Without sharing too many unnecessary details, I will say that this has been a long awaited and desperately desired development.  There were complications and the very real possibility that this wouldn’t happen for me.  Needless to say, I’m being more then a little careful and that has led to my disappearance.  I hope that I can redeem myself to those who have given me a chance to be a part of their amazing work and that some of you will share my joy with me.  I promise not to bore with all the details of this journey I’m on and I will continue to strive for a balance between my two lives.  Thank you for letting me share my news with you all.
