The FabFree Mesh Body and Head Listing is Live!

Miss Caroline Walker came to me a few days ago with a great idea:  to have a page that lists which mesh heads and bodies are currently available on the grid for free or as group gifts!  We get asked this question pretty often, and with designers being so generous these days, it’s nice to have a resource that will guide you.   This is a working document, with updates expected as we progress!  If you have any tips, please contact Caroline Walker (rawumber) inworld.

Even more importantly, if you want to thank her for her hard work – please be sure to do so.

THE FABFREE MESH BODY AND HEAD LISTING

Thanks Caroline – Fantastic work!

The FabFree Advent Listing is Coming!

Heya FabFree!

It’s *almost* the most wonderful time of the year!  One of the best traditions we have here on the blog, and in SL, is the unveiling of Advent Calendars across the grid during the month of December.  We aim to bring you the most complete coverage of these awesome events every year, and this year is no exception.  Work has already begun on the massive list, with many designers confirming that they will indeed have a calendar in their shop.

FabFree is a vibrant community, and we look to our readers, designers and group members for inspiration, help and tips at all times.  To that end, if you are a designer, or know of a designer that is planning an Advent Calendar this year, please let us know!  Please send Aline Passiflora a notecard inworld if you have a tip, and she will happily send designers a 3 second form to fill out for free coverage of your event.

We can’t wait to unveil it all on December 1st!

The FabFree Picks Contest Takes Off!

 

We at FabFree are all about sharing the love.  The whole reason for the existence of this blog is the importance of giving back to the community!  We see things we love that are free or affordable, and we just know we have to tell you all about it!  We’ve got a bit of a contest coming up that’s all about sharing.   The picks tab in your profile is a spot where you can share your favourite things with all profile peekers, and we’d love to see FabFree take up one of those tabs.

To that end, we’re holding a contest!  Yay!

___________________________

How it works:

Step 1 – Create a pick in your profile, and set it to the location to the FabFree Info Hub

Step 2 – Add a photo to your pick.  It could be the FabFree logo, or something that makes you think of FabFree (perhaps a photo of you in freebies you heard news of via FabFree?)

Step 3 – In the text section of the pick, write about what FabFree means to you, and add a link to the blog.

Step 4 – Send a notecard inworld to ALINE PASSIFLORA telling her that you’ve entered the contest.  Make sure your name is in the title like so:  FabFree Picks Contest – YourNameHere. 

Step 5 – Make sure you’re in the FabFree inworld group.

Deadline:

The winner of the picks contest will be chosen by lottery on Monday August 31st!

Prizes:

The winner will receive 2000L!
