This week, I bring to you a dear fae and sometimes kitty who I met in my early days in IW. I was exploring her sim Midsommar and saw her lovely creations. I messaged her about something or another that I was trying to find – a shop for my sim I believe, and she kindly passed me along one of hers. From that time on, I continued to furnish my home and my rental homes with her furniture. Not only does she make furniture, but she makes garden items, decor and some lovely quality builds — but the BEST thing is that she is simply one of the most wonderful people I know 🙂
So, without further adieu, Leanna Caerndow!
Birch -Hi Leanna, thank you for taking the time to do this interview with me
Leanna- You’re very welcome!
Birch – I admit I’m a huge fan of yours. 90% of my furniture in Inworldz is made by you *grins*
Leanna. – *blushes* thank you!
Birch – First of all, how long have you been in Inworldz for?
Leanna– almost 4 years now
Birch – What brought you here, how did you first hear about Inworldz?
Leanna – A friend sent me an email telling me about InWorldz. I had never heard of it before. So I decided to create an account and check it out. I liked it, so I stayed 🙂 This friend of mine gave me a lovely home and I moved in \o/
Birch – What was your first impression of Inworldz when you came here, and what did you find most challenging or most difficult to adjust to?
Leanna- My very first impression was that it was like SL a few years ago but emptier. Then I learnt about the prim limits and prices and I think I was unable to pick my jaw up off the floor for a month.
The most challenging experience was to decloud, lol. I’d been a cloud for a week before I read on the forum how to decloud. I think I could have gone to a mentor but back then, I still avoided people as much as I could. *blush*
Birch – What do you enjoy most , now that you’ve been here awhile?
Leanna – My friends – the wonderful people I met here – and my sim. I love to decorate without having to worry about prim limits. It’s nice to be able to make a place look “alive” or really lived-in. It adds so much realism to a scene.
Birch – Have you been able to fulfill what it was you came here to do?
Leanna – I just wanted to create…so yes, I’ve definitely been able to fulfill that.
Birch – Do you want to talk a bit about your store, and your sim etc? You have recently been doing some talks about Mesh, correct?
Leanna- My sim is called Midsommar and my store is called Offbeat. Yes, I’ve given some talks on mesh – a super easy blender tutorial, actually. I tried to show people that creating mesh in blender is a lot less intimidating than they might think.
Birch -What are you hoping to achieve in the future here? Any big plans you’d like to share?
Leanna – No “big” plans, I just want to help enrich people’s virtual lives.
Birch – Leanna, Thank you so much for taking the time for this interview. And thanks for providing us with such beatiful quality creations
Leanna- *blush* Thank you for your kind words, and it was my pleasure.
