Silver's Campfire Stories (Formerly A Sim Campfire)

«13
SilverDaybreakSilverDaybreak Posts: 2,076 Member
Hi everybody and welcome Silver's Campfire Stories. Grab a marshmallow or weiner to roast on the open fire then sit back and enjoy the adventures of my new Sim families. Comments are always welcome.


Let me start by introducing myself:

My real life name is Janet (Jan Tedfor in my studio is myself) but I go by the the name of Silver which is taken from my username, SilverDaybreak (In memory of my part Arabian mare that I use to ride). I am from Sussex, New Brunswick and live with my wonderful husband and 2 cats Muffy and Buffy. Currently I'm unemployed and have spent the last two and a half years trying to get my health and life back which I can say is finally coming together.

I am basically an 'As it happens' type player and like to see how the game unfolds by helping my Sims achieve their wants, goals and reach the top of their careers as well as help romantic relationships along when the opportunity arises. My current Sims 4 legacy is called 'Celtic Heritage' where the founding Sim is/was my new special friend in RL, Renee. If you have Facebook my Sim stories are all on my 'silversimstories' page. Please feel free to add me as a friend there, too. I always enjoy meeting new Simmers and making friends. Will try to post pictures here if I can figure out how to do it as well.

Would love to see my former Sims 3 friends join in, so if you're out there Jazen, Sharona, Fairybird, Fru, Arrowleaf, Dreamerz, Ivory (when she returns to us), Madhatter, Spidergirl, Wickichick, Anon, Faye (or whatever name you're using here), and Anna please stop by and say 'hi' and I want you to know that I miss the old regulars from Wickichick's old Sims 3 thread.

I have retired 'Celtic Heritage' but am beginning three new legacy families:

1. Hardy Crime Busters with founding Sims: Frank & Joe Hardy with Callie (who is now Frank's wife) along with Ned & Nancy (Drew) Nickerson

2. Valley Bakery featuring my Simself & husband, Janet & Grant Tedford

3. Golden Gate Medical Center starring one of the best TV docs of all time Dr Gonzo Gates (from Trapper John, MD)

Make yourselves at home and enjoy!

Silver

    Hi, Silver! Hope you're having a good day and enjoying your Sims! Please feel free, also, to stop by the Writers' Lounge thread anytime you want--it's a friendly group there, and you'll be welcomed with donuts, cupcakes, blueberries, coffee, tea, and hugs. I'm looking forward to seeing your Sim pictures posted here!

    To post them, just save them someplace on the web, like in your blog or Flicker, then grab the URL for the photo and click the Insert photo icon (looks like a page with the corner turned down) and the copy the URL in there!

    Cheers,

    Cathy

    Hi Ivory, I haven't had much traffic in here so I've joined CathyTea's thread "Writer's Lounge", so you can also find me there and I'm sure you'd be welcome there, too. It kind of reminds me of Wicki's old thread. Hugs back.

    It's so noisy in there, I can't hear myself think! And crowded. I'll just sit here in a quiet corner for a sec and sip a little Indian green tea while I write my newest post. Hope you're happy and well today and daydreaming of horses! :)

    Hi, this is Nathan Barton (co-heir of generation 3 in my family's Celtic Heritage legagy). Silver told me to come an introduce myself and a little of my family and what I for a living.


    13401_386707438196563_2691155203656117900_n.jpg?oh=abf0e988eda44910cf953175ea450b1f&oe=5632ADBB

    This is me, Nathan fishing in our backyard with my brother, Cameron (who will introduce himself tomorrow) cleaning up the picnic area. Cameron moved in with me after our mother, Violet passed away while visiting me a few Sim weeks ago.

    Let me introduce Diyan Johnson who is now my lovely wife and mother of our son, Dylan who is pictured below.

    I'm am currently working my way to the top of the painter career while fulfilling goals to reach my ultimate goal of becoming a 'Painter Extraordinaire'. Here are some of my masterpieces:

    That's all I'll share for now but I am happy to announce that Diyan & I are eagerly awaiting the birth of our second child.

    Please come to visit us in our home located in Willow Creek in the middle class neighborhood of the neighborhood. Welcome to any of you who would our neighbors (if we weren't separated by separate games.)

    This is Nathan signing off for Silver

    PS Please feel free to introduce some of your Sims 2 & 3 Sims, too for those of you who still play there.

    Time for today's Sim introduction:

    Please meet Fernand & Ellen LeBlanc who were started in Sims 3 but due to technical difficulties (Sims 3 not loading for me), I recreated them in Sims 2 and they are now settled in the lovely country neighborhood of Pleasantview. During their first week, Fernand got a job in the architecture career while Ellen decided to follow her dream of reaching the top of the Entertainment field. They also adopted their first 2 pets so that Fernand could begin working towards his lifetime goal of having six pets reach the top of their career. Heidi (a black cat) is in the show biz career while Lulu (a black lab) is helping others in the service career. Fernand and Ellen also welcomed their first child, a son whom they named Cody into the world.

    Their legacy is called, 'Country Folk: Generation 1: Pleasantview Entertainment.

    Here are a few pictures from my update:

    This would be the number one reason for not taking shelter under a tree in a thunderstorm.

    Last but not least we have Ms Queen B, Heidi cat surveying her domain.

    Hope you enjoy and please don't forget to douse the bonfire flames so it doesn't spread but enjoy your hot dogs, marshmallows and Smores.

    Have also been playing in Sims 2 the past two days and please meet Reuben Shelley (transplanted from Sims 3) in his new home in Strangetown.

    Reuben thought that building his home in the shape of the letter 'R' would fit right in Strangetown.

    Silver, I love your alphabet homes! The B one was really cool, too. I especially like the interior spaces--the bedrooms are great. Are you creating an entire alphabet town? That would be fun for neighborhood rotation!

    Cathy: I'm working on doing the alphabet in both upper and lower case letters. There aren't enough lots to put them all in the new neighborhood but will do what I can and continue as new neighborhoods are added to the game. I just did a lower case 'a' called Lil' Green Apple and shared it, however it's not showing up in the gallery. Will post pictures later.

    Always a fan of your alphabet houses Silver, as well as your flashbacks to S2 as well, always makes me smile and think "Oh I SO remember when that was THE BEST graphics!"

    Well, I managed to get my Newcrest 'Village' sorted with Medieval houses and a few community lots too, now just need to populate with Sims that suit and then I can make my Sims for my story.

    Also, Happy Weekend guys!

    Hello and hugs to my two faithful followers,

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend with family and your Sims.

    This is my 'Baby Blue' house that is decorated cheaply for the single or new couple Sims with room for adding an upstairs in the future.

    Cathy, Thanks for your comments on my Sims and Baby Blue (aka: little b) house.

    Ivory: Hope you had fun Simming, yesterday and that your appointment went well.

    Here are a few pictures of my Sims 2 game plays over the past two days.

    This is Eveliniah Murray who moved to Belladonna Cove in hopes of making 'A Better Life' for herself. Her first week in town ended on an upsetting note when she got fired from her job (after I picked the wrong choice in a career pop-up situation). Early in my visit, Eveliniah found a job in the 'Slacker' career as a golf caddie and has had 3 promotions since.

    10660237_395829603951013_1312785995226859622_n.jpg?oh=e7ab4815c34701946801e5deebf137b4&oe=561AC520T

    Two of Eveliniah's neighbors, Calista Fuchs and the man in the apartment next to her, fight almost nonstop. Eveliniah usually calls Calista (who is now her best friend) over to try and calm her down.

    Please meet Ellen Otaguro who is the second daughter of Charlie & Cathy (1st generation of Hawaiian Roots legacy). When Sims 3 stopped working I recreated her in Sims 2 to save the legacy.

    Yes, I am making some 'letter' houses in Sims 2. This is Ellen's sideways 'E' home.

    That's all for now.

    Silver

    Note: If you have FB, you can find my Sims and their stories on my SilversSimStories page if you want to friend me or give me your FB username to find you.

    Hi Everyone,

    Cathy: Thanks for your visit on my last update and for you're response on my last comment in your thread. I'll start reading your story when I get a chance.

    Love this neighborhood! Every time I see your placement of furniture, I always want to move my SimSelf into your houses! The rooms look so fun and cosy!

    Hope you have a great weekend! :)
