The Childless Mother

I am the childless mother.
Dreams shattered, the pieces
lurk in dark corners
linger in shadows

I am the childless mother.
But not the only one
who weeps silent tears
from a seemingly endless well

I am the childless mother.
My day is not today,
when those who give life
are celebrated

I am the childless mother.
But never alone,
the sorrow cannot overtake
gifts given by those who love me

~Lucie Bluebird

Childless Mother

Dedicated to everyone who was there for me today… and to all who know my sorrow. But most of all, dedicated to the husband who loves me through every day, no matter what.

Getting my geek on

The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair opened this week, and this is an event that every geek/nerd simply must visit! There is something for nerds and geeks of all types… and the build for the event is very cute and easy to navigate (and I say that as someone who gets lost at pretty much every event ever). I’m definitely a serious geek/nerd and usually walk around in a group tag that says “Proud Dork.” So this fair was just about custom made for me (and people like me!).

I’m wearing the jumper of a dress from SySy’s for this event, along with eyeliner from Mons that’s also at the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair. My awesome boots are from fri.day. fri.day is a part of the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds fair, but these boots are a Shoetopia release! You still have a few days to head over to Shoetopia and grab all the gorgeous shoes. Remember, this is a charity event, so every designer has out at least one 100% donation item, and the charity, Soles 4 Souls is working to help, among others, the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. This is a way you can do your own part to help a great cause, while having fun shopping, so do be sure to check it out before it ends on the 30th!

My Favorite Dorks

The build I used in these pics is the Neva Captain’s House from Scarlet Creative for the current round of Collabor88. It’s a really unique, quirky build and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. I plan to take some more pics of it soon, but in the meantime, do take a minute to visit the demo at Collabor88! It’s a not-to-be-missed home for anyone who loves the unusual.

Most of the decor items are from the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair. You will find the full credits at the bottom of this post, with the ones available at the fair tagged accordingly. My cute pose, complete with prop, is from Kuro In Motion. It’s not a fair item, but seemed appropriate for the post!

To those who celebrate, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! More from me soon.

Witchy Business

I love Halloween. I love autumn. Both of these things have been discussed before, so I won’t wax on about them, but I had to say it again. Collabor88’s October round is just chock full of autumnal, Halloweenish goodness. If you’ve not yet been, you definitely should go over there before it ends because while the items are definitely inspired by the season, most of them will work year-round!

Kuro In Motion’s recent prop pose release was very helpful in my quest to complete the scene I’d created using the Remedy Caravan that Scarlet Creative has in this round of Collabor88. I fell in love with this caravan, and I bought it even though at the time I had absolutely no clue whatsoever what I’d do with it! Once I’d collected some other Collab items, like the chair from floorplan and the tarot cards from flowey, I figured it out. I knew this little caravan would be perfect for the travelling fortune telling witch on the go. My original concept was to wear something that felt… well… vintage. But then I built this sexy menswear inspired outfit entirely around Truth’s Dylan hair, and I realized I would simply be a modern, business woman witch on the go! Here I am resting up for my next session!

Witch at rest

Fortune tellers require clients, so I snagged a friend to be my victim. Uhm. Client. Though, to be honest, the cards were not kind to her.

Witchy Business

In this last pic, you get a better look at my Eerie jewelry from Cae, which is seasonally appropriate. However, it’s definitely not limited to just the Halloween season. You can change the charms via a hud, and there are many options including the moons I am showing here. There are also ghosts, owls, cats, witch hats, spiders, pumpkins and bats… you definitely need to check out this set! I love moons and owls, so I know I will get year-round use of this set.

I’m also wearing the newly released Vera skin from Glam Affair in the Jamaica tone. I feel like a broken record when I blog Glam Affair because a. I always seem to love each new release even more than the last and b. I just can’t stop talking about how gorgeous they are! Vera is no exception to the trend. It’s flawless.
