Carson, Who Stole Christmas

Blueberry - Holidays Gift - Sky Version Winter Cabin

Every Blogger down in Fab-ville liked Christmas a lot
But Carson who lived just North of Fab-ville did not!
Carson hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
He hated the Bloggers, he knew what to do
He would steal their presents to make them cry boo hoo!
Then he slid down the chimney, a rather tight pinch.
But if Santa could do it, then so could this grinch.
He got stuck only once, for a minute or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue
Where the little Fab stockings hung all in a row.
“These stockings,” he grouched, “are the first things to go!”
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then Carson, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney.
As Carson took the tree, as he started to shove,
He saw a small dog, “I’ll take it from Love!”

 

Alter Sweater Fatpack

Just North of Fab-ville Carson did go.
With presents and goodies and the dog in tow.
But the dog didn’t whimper,
It wanted to play.
And what happened then? Well, in Fab-ville they say
That Carson’s small heart grew three sizes that day!
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!

Just A Few Days Left To Advent!

2016 Advent List

The Fabulously Free in SL Advent Listing, which originally started with approximately 50 stops, has grown to 85+!  Some calendars allow you to pick up days you have missed for free or for a small fee, and some are day specific. Make sure you check out the listing for your favourite shops!  Even if you just make time to pick them up, and open after the holidays…  It will be like Christmas after Christmas!

Not sure what an advent is? Visit the Advent page and learn all about it.  You’ll find tons of free gifts and affordable offers every day until Christmas!  I have placed a handy button on the top right hand side of the blog so you can find the list easily each day.  You’ll find it below our Group Gift Listing and above the Photo Challenge Info!

Happy adventing!!

My Holiday Happy Place

Snapshot_001Hey  FabFree!  Are you ready for Christmas?  Unlike Carson who is running around trying to do last minute Christmas shopping as he mentioned [HERE],  I ordered most of the things on my list online this year to avoid the hustle and bustle of shopping centers in December, but… now I am stalking tracking numbers in hopes they all arrive on time!  I suppose ordering online does have it’s pros (being able to pick things up in the comfort of your own home), but also it’s cons (waiting for them to arrive!!).

My 80L Room

Fortunately I’m all cozy and comfortable in the sitting room that I put together with several 10L finds at The Wash Cart Sale while I wait.  My puppy is off frolicking in the snow somewhere (Serena, is he at your place again?!), but as you can see my kittycat is keeping me company just fine.  This whole scene is put together with just 80L.  I will list the items in my photo with direct TPs for easy shopping:

What I’m wearing:

You’ll have to forgive me, I know my posts have been a little longer than usual lately and that’s because I am trying to stuff so much in them – but there is just so much to talk about this month!  I also want to share with you the details of my outfit because I have some free and affordable finds ON too!

New Freebies @ Blueberry

Right around the corner at the entrance of Blueberry on the gifts wall, you will find that there is a new holiday gift priced at 0L.  Inside the gift is the pretty Mini Sweater I have on today (includes a ton of printed and solid textures) as well as the fun Unisex Antlers (also can be changed with the texture change HUD).  You don’t need to be in the group to pick this fab gift up, but… you can if you want to!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique, Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya, Venus

Snuggling In My Boots

I picked up these snuggly Beth Boots fitted with socks at Aleutia’s offerings at The Wash Cart Sale for just 10L! The best part about these boots is that they come with a texture change hud, so you can match them up with whatever you are wearing in a click!

Whew.. ok, onto my next project!  Enjoy your day 🙂

My Heart (Still) Belongs to FabFree!

skater8_001f

I’m so excited to be back at FabFree!

And this pose says it all. <3<3

For those of you who don’t know or remember me, I was originally hired by Renee Lowenhart way back in December of 2012. I blogged alongside Love and Pru (and various others) for 2 1/2 years until Real Life got the better of me in June of 2014, and I had to take a break. But I’m so happy to be back with the amazing FabFree Team, and with YOU, the wonderful readers. I’ve missed you all so much!

And yeah, Love has decided to call me “vintage” too, but I’ll never be as vintage as Carson! 😛

An Afternoon Skate

Ok, so on to the free stuff! My cozy skater outfit is a free group gift from Ever An’ Angel. In fact, it is one of 10 group gifts currently sitting under the big Christmas tree! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL), and the tights come with an OMEGA applier, as well as a tattoo layer for non-mesh bodies.

To complete the outfit, I stopped by Abranimations and picked up a pair of free skates. They are rigged mesh (from 2014) and cannot be sized, which is why my feet look a bit… er, larger than life here. But hey, they’re free, and I’ve been having so much fun with the skating animation, especially the “beginner’s wobble” every time I stop walking skating. Oh, and when someone rezzed on top of me at a busy sim, I went SPLAT on the ground! LOL! FYI, Abranimations also has a fantastic advent calendar with some crazy, goofy gifts, so be sure to join the free group and pick up the remaining gifts while you are there (past gifts will be available for sale).

skater13_001fMy lovely eyeshadow and lipstick are by alaskametro for On9, and you can play their gacha machine for just 20L at the current round. The box includes appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, as well as tattoo layers for system heads (that sounds weird, doesn’t it?). And as Love mentioned, there are oodles of free gifts available, so be sure to join the free On9 Fan Club to snatch those up!

Finally, this adorable reindeer headband is by Noodles for the MadPea Christmas Calendar. Now… don’t get mad at me. I know that at 1000L, the calendar is a bit pricey. So why am I telling you about it anyway? Because the calendar contains 25 AMAZING gifts by some of the best designers on the grid! And unless my math is way off, that works out to be about 40L per gift. All of the past gifts are still available, so even if you join up at this late date, you won’t miss out on a gift. 🙂

Oh, Christmas Tree

If you’re still in need of a Christmas tree, be sure to stop by FaMESHed and pick up the free group gift from The Little Branch. The tree is copy/mod, so you can rez them all over your land in a variety of sizes (which does change the LI, so be careful).

My pretty lantern full of Christmas balls is a free gift by Decor Junction/Shutter Field at Tres Chic. You do have to pay 1L to get it, but you will be refunded right away!

Oh, and Love, you’d better come and get your puppy. He wandered over and photobombed me as I was taking this picture, but he looked so cute in his little Santa hat that I decided to let him stay. 😀
