On one of the last patches something changed that no longer allows you to delete an item in the contents, something I used to do with shoes when I didn'tt want the walk.
Originally I had made these with a scripted walk at a customers request but now have had alot of requests for the shoe without the walk. If you purchased these shoes and would like it without the walk please contact me

I have had a miserable few days being sick with the flu, its been bed rest for me mostly with a a couple hours here and there trying to finish a wedding gown for a bride who was getting married monday. Thankfully I was just about done when I got sick. I logged in this evening just to check messages and I received this lovely photograph from Xanna, it really captured the essence of what his outfit was about when I initially envisioned it.

That seen became part of sight...
Yes, love indeed is light from heaven;
A spark of that immortal fire.
Secret Garden Wedding V1
This first gown is not a revamp but a new design that evolved from the Secret Garden series at a request from a customer who wanted it as a wedding gown. This gown went through a few transformations as the customer wanted a cathredal length train for it. I have to say after alot of fits I was thrilled with the end result.The dress has a light gossamer feel that exudes luxury and feminity. There are prim roses with diamonds encircling the semi sheer bodice and the delicate sleeves. The bodice also has layers that can be added so if you choose for the ceremony it can be more opaque. There is a cathredal length gown and I also have made a reception gown with out the full train, that is a bit more manageable. The veil has a white rose wreath and an over veil that can be removed after the ceremony. There are 2 bustles one long for the ceremony and one for reception. Available now at my main store only on the Island of ImagineNation. Please IM me if you wish to view the gown before purchase.

Ok for the record I HATE update days, and I also hate the cold and its been freezing in California, we even had snow by the beach for the first time in 20 years! Check out the video.
I do understand that we need some downtime and fixes but of late the fixes seem to be less of an improvement and more a stumbling block. Its far and few between that the days we have an upgrade it goes smoothly and often takes days for things to normalise, by the time we do another update day is here. Am I saying anything new not really but just needed to rant.
New Feature in todays update include:
Improved Search function - I hope so search has been broken on & off for weeks and been working intermittently.
Next and previous button functions for the classifieds - Not sure if this was really a necessary feature but it does help make browsing bit easier & cleaner.
Non copy items are returned to inventory - I thought we always had this one but seems like somewere along the way it stopped working as it did so glad its fixed hopefully it will help with the inventory items that people seem to just have vanish.
There been a sandbox time limit and autoreturn added.
Report Bug has been moved to tools menu for those of you who may need to use it, it hasnt gone missing.
There are a few more but these were the ones that stood out to me. A lot of fixes, substantially more fixes then new features, that makes me feel a little better about having so a long down day.
The first hour or so seemed a bit rough, with a few annoying bugs, but things seemed to have stabilised so hopefully things will go well for the week
The Bridal salon is slowly coming together, I have done bridal gowns since I started designing mostly as custom orders for some wonderful customers who inspired me to help bring their visions to life. For a variety of reasons, I never got the wedding gowns into the shop and then flexis came and I have had alot of revamping to do.
Initially I was kinda bummed about having to redo all the work but ultimately I think it was for the best as the designs are much stronger and fluid then some of my initial work. I think sometimes when your rushing
and are very focused on the intial design process you miss alternatives.
I always nit pick things to death when I am working but if I am able to leave a design sit for a while and come back to it with a fresh eye, I find I am able to see things differently that may just make that needed change. I am always trying to challenge myself to try and see things differently and push beyond my initial concept.
The above photo is actually of some of the orginal dresses I havebeen reworking. Over the next few weeks Ill be releasing the revamped versions and some completely new designs. Flexis have both been wonderful and a great frustration in this process. On one hand there wonderful as it does give you a bit of softness and fluidity that we just were not able to get before, the bad part is the flying prims in your face when you move and while you can attain softness its not always the kind you want so I find myself struggling trying to achieve a compromise with the limitations and what I see in my head and how I want the dress to feel to me as I design it.
Overall I am reasonably happy with some of the results so far and hope people enjoy them.
