Spotlight on a New Year!

No Gravatar

Happy New Year!  Today I am sitting talking in group thinking about the awesome Amaretto Community and how thankful I am to be a part of this beautiful and wacky community.  It has been over 5 years since this wonderful and wild ride with Amaretto Breedables started and it’s still the greatest adventure of my life!  Mostly because of all of you, the breeders, the community, the creativity and the caring for one another.  Logging into Second Life each day to check on your breedables but also stopping to check on your friends and fellow breeders.  Nothing beats this Community …nothing!  Remember each other in the new year to come, take a moment to show a friend you care, take a moment just to talk to one another and remember we are all human behind this computer screen with our own issues and burdens.  You never know when one kind word or caring action can make the biggest of differences in someone’s life.  Keep our own Maleficent in your thoughts and prayers so that she can continue on her journey to health and get back here with us all soon!

For my Spotlight today I want to let you all know you matter and send to you my wishes for you all in the New Year.  I found this poem online and thought it expressed the sentiments I wanted to express perfectly:

 

My New Year Wishes for You…

Happiness deep down within.

Serenity with each sunrise.

Success in each facet of your life.

Family beside you.

Close and caring friends.

Health, inside of you.

Love that never ends.

Special memories of all the yesterdays.

A bright today with much to be thankful for.

A path that leads to beautiful tomorrows.

Dreams that do their best to come true.

Appreciation of all the wonderful things about you.

Have a GREAT Year.

 

Until next year … Happy Breeding.

Spotlight on Holiday Cheer!

Merry Christmas Eve!!! I want to wish each and every member of the Amaretto Community a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!  On this day before Christmas I sit reflecting on how blessed we all are here in this big wonderful Amaretto Community.  We might not always get that exact bundle, kennel or nest that we want but we always have a community we can log on and talk to about anything and everything, we have many blessing to count each and every one of us and I want you to know that you all have inspired me this year to focus on more blessing counting and less complaining about what I don’t have. In ways you will never know many of you touch my life daily and for that and all of you I am thankful this Christmas!

Speaking of you in the community and your inspiration I want to share with you all some Christmas creativity Amaretto Community style.

When I logged on this morning MrDarkWolf Resident posted this in the Amaretto group and I have to share it with all of you …

‘Twas the day before Christmas, when all through the pen, Not a creature was stirring, not even a Blue Colada Crazed Rhode Island White Hen; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes a Ponie Pal soon would be there; The breeders were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of new drops danced in their heads!

 

Darkwolf family first Christmas

 

Thank you Wolfy that makes me smile so much!!

 

Now yesterday as I sat here chair dancing to my favorite Christmas Carols another of you amazingly creative breeders came into the group singing an Amaretto Christmas Carol that I swear she was making up as she went along!  By the time she was finished I had to message her and ask her if I could do my Spotlight today on her song and share it with the rest of you.  Thankfully she said yes! Thank you so much ScarletBegonias Boucher this is the best Christmas Carol I’ve heard since …well the original version!!

First you need to pull up the original song Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt.  After you have the melody in your head sing this amazing version to yourself and watch your smile light up like a kid at Christmas!!

 

Santa baby, just slip a good bundle under the tree for me;
Been an awful good girl, Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a Charmed Demon too, light blue;
I’ll wait up for you, dear; Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I’ve missed;
Think of all the SL boys that I haven’t kissed;
Next year I could be just as good… if you check off my horsey list

Santa baby, I want a Cosmic and really that’s not a lot;
Been an angel all year; Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa honey, one little thing I really need…
The deed… to make the horsies mine, Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with the food and salt;
Put a Monarch on the line, Santa cutie,
and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree with some LEs bought at Josaphine’s;
I really do believe in you;
Let’s see if you believe in me…

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing… A Wind…
I don’t mean just the eye; Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry, tonight!

Applause!! Applause!! Applause!!! Thank you so much Scarlet for sharing that with all of us.

Now I will leave you with this …. Happy Breeding, Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good night!

Interview With an Amaretto Breeder

No Gravatar

Happy Friday Everyone !!! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day !

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Crystal Glasswing. Crystal is in the Amaretto Groups so when you see her give her a big hello.

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?

Hi, I’m Crystal, and I’m from North Central Arizona. I came to Second Life in February 2010 out of curiosity, and I decided to stay because it is amazing and fun.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?

I own around 120 Amaretto Horses, and I also have 4 Amaretto K-9 Kennels (huskies) …though I haven’t started breeding the K-9s yet.

How did you get started in breedables?

In January 2013 I was in a building contest, and a friend rezzed this cute little just-born Amaretto Horse in the sandbox. I mentioned how cute she was, and my friend told me I could buy her for a great price, so I did. Then I got her a mate …then another …then a few more …and the rest is history haha, I was hooked.

*Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?

No, just Amarettos

*What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?

Well, I have the 8X Whites, and I’m adding ear tips to them to make 9X Whites. I’m also working on both the Emerald and Amethyst Dazzle Saddles, on matching color horses. Also I’m doing Christmas/Holiday Horses (A Red & Green project, and a Snowflake project).

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9s

I haven’t started breeding the k-9s yet. Maybe after the Holidays.

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable ?

Amaretto Horses! I really enjoy them.

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?

Well, I build a little, and I love exploring new places in Second Life. There is always something new to see here, and people here are so creative. I enjoy learning as well and I learn something new every day in Second Life.

Thank you Crystal for letting me interview you this week 🙂
I have included some pictures of Crystal favorite Amaretto Breedables

Until next week Happy Breeding !!

Final Spotlight on Holiday Inspiration

No Gravatar

Happy Thursday!  I have really enjoyed writing these Spotlights on Holiday Inspiration and I hope many of you have taken the ideas provided here and started your own Holiday projects!  I think I have saved the best for last!

I was out and about the other week and spotted a display from across the sim.  After going over and having a closer look I knew that I had to talk to the owners and do a Spotlight on their Holiday creativity!

 

The Elf project was started by venere00 Resident and her partner KillerTrex Resident.  I spoke with venere00 who was happy to share their project with everyone here in my Spotlight.  This is what she had to say about their fabulous Elf project:

 

Hello my name is Venere00 and I started to make horses Amaretto
a little more than a year ago with my husband Killertrex.
Breeding Amaretto horses is a passion that we share. They’re
a lot of fun to create stand for them, and all of this for us and
a beautiful game.
We had a lot of difficulties at the beginning due to the language we are
Italian and we do not know the English language.
But all breeders of Amaretto Horses were always
kind and helpful, and told us about the site Amaretto
where we learned a lot, and more we entered college.
We never had much luck with the new features, for this
why we really enjoy creating projects because that way the
horse design will be unique … lol
For this time we decided to create the Christmas elf
are four months that we work and the result we really like we got
what we wanted … we later found out today that Amaretto created the new eye of Santa’s elf and this makes us happy because it ‘s perfect for our project.
What is the Christmas Elf you ask?
In our imagination there are two types:
The Green: Ripe Lime Crazed Coat Sorrel, with hair Mystic Siam,
the red socks and saddle roses Heart (because ‘the elves have big hearts lol)
their wives are instead
redheads: Sizzling Red Coat Crazed Walker with green socks
wing grim and saddle Rose Heart
Now we just have to hope that they can both have new eyes
to be the perfect Christmas elves of 2015 especially hope
They will appeal to our breeder friends.
Dreams for the near future, will be one of the many ‘what I and killer
we crown our love with a wedding Amaretto spouses and friends riding
I am sure that we will achieve it.
Now we just have to say goodbye and to wish good luck to all breeders
especially to our friends Brillantecometa cloud.funizza and wishing them good luck
for their project secret …… shhhhhhhh

 

A secret project?!?! Sounds like I need to do some further investigating and find out what venere00’s friends are up too!

 

Thank you for sharing your beautiful project with us all venere00 and KillerTrex!  Check out the pictures below and look for the displays out in the markets because they are fabulous!

Until next time … Happy Breeding!
