So make yourself comfortable and have a look around! I hope you will find something that interests you and I would love to hear what you think. I'm open to suggestions, too!

    What am I up to now?

    For once, I'm not trying to enter any contest or participating in any other events at the moment. Which is good because I'm swamped with homework more often than not. So when I get time to go in game, I'm just sitting back and enjoying playing my game and working on whatever strikes my fancy. That said, I plan on putting some effort into finishing the multitude of unfinished WIPs that are gathering dust in my library right now. So here are some sneak peaks at what might be showing up here in the near future:

    Okay, now that the setup's done, time to post some creations!

    First up is a build that for me really started me down the path to my love with building. I had just started poking around the forums and saw the many amazing things folks made. I decided to step up my building game a bit myself when I bought Dragon Valley and needed a consignment store for it.

    Welcome to the Brews and Baubles Consignment Store!
    Lot Size: 20x20
    Description: A consignment store made to fit in with the architecture of Dragon Valley. Features ambitions and elixir consignment registers, a reading nook, public washrooms and an elixir work area. Also has bees and alchemy insect and gem spawners.

    It is great that you have set up a showcase thread for your creations :) It will great to visit your thread and see your creations.
    Brews and Baubles Consignment Store is great! :) Very nice exterior of it! The texture and patterning of the exterior is great. The store suits Dragon Valley world well. It looks great how you have done the windows. Nice archway entrance to the build. It looks nice how you have placed the flowers on the edges of the building. The wishing well looks great there. It is great that you have placed hives on the lot, for sims to enjoy harvesting honey to use when making elixirs. Nice furnishing of the interior of the store. The shade of green of the curtains looks nice with the white of the walls. The grandfather clock looks great in the corner and suits the type of build. It looks great that you have placed the potions bottles on the register counter. Very nice window reading alcove. Sims will enjoy sitting relaxing on the comfortable sofa or arm chair there, reading a book from the book case. The floor rug looks nice. Great alchemy area. Sims will enjoy brewing up elixirs on the alchemy station and cutting gems on the gem cutter. It looks great how you have placed the bookcase on the side of the area. The books decor placed on the ground are great touches in the room. It looks great how you have placed the different types of bottles and jars on the coffee table there. Nice patterned floor mat that you have placed there.
    It is a great place for sims to visit to do shopping and creating alchemy elixirs :)

    @anette Thank you! I think asking for more is the nicest compliment you could have given me. :) Unfortunately, I haven't done anything else in that style and don't know how to go about making rabbitholes. That being said, I will be sure to take a closer look at your treasure hunt and see if I have anything suitable. I did have an idea for a converted barn home... hmmm. Thanks again for stopping by to comment! :)

    @rosemow Thank you for your kind words as well! The details that you pick out from pictures never ceases to surprise--and delight--me.

    Next up, I'm going to introduce you to the Bartlett brothers. They were created as entries into cmbaker's Design That Home contest.

    Age,Traits & Skills:
    Cornelius - Young Adult - Angler, Athletic, Loner, Loves the Outdoors, Brave - Fishing 6, Atletic 5
    Trenton - Young Adult - Artistic, Handy, Childish, Good Sense of Humor, Mooch - Painting 2, Photography 2, Street Art 2, Handiness 2, Charisma 1, Guitar 1, Social Networking 1, Writing 1, Inventing 1

    Cornelius and Trenton were born into a rich family, but when they grew up and showed no signs of independence, their parents kicked them out. They didn't go far, retreating to the family beach house. Cornelius loves nothing more than the solitude of fishing and never fit in well at high class social events anyway, but Trenton could charm anyone with a joke and is used to getting whatever he wants, although he tends to be flighty and can't even stick to one hobby. Can these two very different brothers pull together to fend for themselves?

    Cornelius and Trenton are very nice sims :) It looks nice how you have done their faces. Their hairstyles suit them.Very nice pictures that you have posted of them! Very nice sunset picture with Cornelius fishing and a boat in the distance! It looks a peaceful sight. Nice picture also of him running along the beach with the background of the light house and the moon. The brothers look like they are having fun playing frisbee! Trenton perhaps wouldn't like being hit in the head though!
    They are great sims. :)

    Thanks, rose! I'm no expect with CAS, but I'm glad you like them! I'm sure Trenton would have preferred not getting hit, too, but I laugh every time because of Cornelius laughing in the background.

    I should probably get this thread back up to date, but I have a brand new creation that I'm very excited to be sharing. It has been a couple months in the works, far longer than I expected it to take, but without further ado, I present the build that was meant to be my entry for Ivanna420's April Monthly building challenge (check it out over here: http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/819010/monthly-building-challenge-challenge-2-now-open/p1).

    Lot Name: Modern Beach Party
    Lot Size: 30x40
    Description: A lavish one bedroom, two bathroom, modern home built out over the water, this house is meant for those who live to host. Features a party room with dance floor, bar, DJ booth and karaoke machine in addition to ample deck space with pool and hot tub. The view is one to remember. Built on Cay to the City Island, but also places well at Palm Beach, Pirate Island. No CC or CAP.

    During my final round of testing, I found that it is a bit complicated to place a pre-built lot on the uncharted islands, which is why the description includes and alternative. Here's what worked for me, if you want to place it on Cay to the City. First, of course, you have to unlock the islands, either by cheat or meeting the requirements. Then, go into edit town mode and change the lot type on the island to any commercial lot type. This will automatically sell the lot so your sim no longer owns it and allowing you to place lots from the bin on it. Change the lot back, place the house from your library, then have your sim buy it. Hope this helps, in case anyone has trouble with it! :)

    Hi @KaytayRoall , just followed a link to this thread. What a lovely build. Great use of different heights and sunken rooms. The pool area is awesome. Love how creatively you used items... framing of the walkway with the angled post, mood lighting, taking full advantage of the views. Everything looks so clean and modern, yet inviting. Very nicely done. Way to go! :D

    @rosemow Thank you so much for your kind words! :) I don't know where you find time in the day to look at everything with such a keen eye for detail and write up all that you see so nicely.

    @soocoolsim Thank you! :D That build took me forever, but I'm so very proud of it. I swear I tried every single kind of pillar (and a few other things) on that walkway to make it look right lol. Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)

    @ciane Thanks! I tried to plan ahead a bit when I created the thread. Although I guess it is still a bit bare-bones. I do have a couple things in my studio I haven't made posts for yet... Hmm...

    Cameo and Motley are very cute cats! :) The colour of and markings on their coats are very nice!
    The background story that you have written about Eva, Barry and Holly is very nice! It is a special sims household with Eva being a fairy and the toddlers being plant sims. Eva is a very pretty fairy! :)
    Ethan, his sister Tessa and Asterope will be a great family to play as well. It is nice reading the background story to these sims as well. It will be nice seeing Asterope as she grows up as an alien.
    Family Friendly Modern is a very nice home! :) The exterior design and layout of the home is very nice! It looks very nice the type and how you have used the windows in the build, to create a very nice light filled home ! The tree look very nice placed along the front of the home. Very nice outdoors areas! The glass greenhouse is so very nice! Sims will enjoy growing and harvesting plants there. Very nice pond water fountain feature! Sims will enjoy sitting on the seats around the firepit, toasting food, chatting, and looking at the nice sight of the water fountain. The upper balcony with the sunken middle area is very nice! Sims will enjoy sitting relaxing on the loungers there, enjoying the views. They will enjoy doing star gazing using the telescope. Very nice pool and hot tub patio! Sims will have fun swimming in the pool or enjoy relaxing in the tub. The flooring of the patio is nice. Very nice outdoors dining nook for sims to enjoy cooking meals on the BBQ and eating the food at the umbrella covered table, enjoying eating outdoors in the air. Very nice furnishing of the interior of the home! The textures and colours of the interior walls in each of the rooms are very nice! The wall patterning in the dining and living rooms looks very nice! Very nice dining room! It looks nice how you have alternated the coloured dining seats, and the items are nice touches on top of the dining table. The wall picture complements well with the wall pattern. I won't post about each of the rooms, but am enjoying looking at the pictures of your very nice home! Each of the rooms and areas of the build are very nice! :)

    @Heledriel - Thank you so much! Light and spacious was exactly what I was going for! :) Oddly enough, I never much cared for modern-style architecture until I started doing a lot of building in the sims and discovered that style was great at accomplishing both of those things. Also, it lets me get away with using an over-abundance of windows. :D

    @rosemow Thank you as always for you kind words. I had a bunch of fun writing the stories for both families and got totally carried away with it, but that is the sort of thing my brain does while I'm playing, I just don't try to share it very often.
  • KaytayRoallKaytayRoall Posts: 877 Member
    I just realized there was one more gift I made for the exchange and forgot to post here! They don't have a story, but here are...

    The Lyons Siblings
    Kirana and Tay are brother and sister. She's a friendly, nature- and heat-loving natural cook, who always seems to make messes where ever she goes. He's an ecologically-minded vegetarian with a creative streak, who loves a good laugh and is easily impressed and just as easily distracted. It's probably good they each have the other to look after them, isn't it?

    Kirana and Tay are very nice siblings! :) The orange and red colour scheme of Kirana's outfits looks very nice! It looks very nice how you have used blue and green colours for Tay's clothing.
    They are very nice sims to play in the game :)
