    Hello :)
    I hope that your Graveyard build goes well :) It was great to read the results of the poll.

    Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun building it. :)

    Hi guys! Happy Halloween! This is the lot that won the October poll. It’s a graveyard built on a 40x40 lot in Moonlight Falls. Several of the ghosts on this lot are mine, though I have thrown in dead townies from Bridgeport and Moonlight Falls. This lot was made with store content.
    I was going to do a story build like Jude suggested but sadly didn't have the time. :(

    The Graveyard looks great! :) The bridge looks great over the pond! The lights at the ends of the bridge look great. The tombstones are nice placed through the build areas and the flowers are a pretty touch on them.
    It is a very nice place to remember Sims who have passed away <3

    Thank you! I struggled a bit with the bridge. I wanted to make it arched but sadly the building cheats weren't working with me. Awwww! Thank you for noticing the small details. I know I have said that before, but I truly appreciate it. <3

    Okay, late to the party. I was "offline" most of October. Just hadn't been signing in. I think the bridge is great, but I especially love the use of the red lighting. And who doesn't appreciate a little life fruit when hanging out in a graveyard?

    I completely understand that. Life has been so busy lately!
    Thank you. I felt it matched the environment well. I loved how the pictures turned out with it. You're right! A little life fruit goes a long way.

    Hey guys I'll be taking a hiatus as my life is really busy right now. There will be no December poll and the November one is currently tied so it'll be up until that changes. I'm burnt out on building and need to take a break. I'll be releasing the November poll build after that. I still need to post my Version 1 Festival Lot and then you probably won't see builds for a bit. Thank you guys for all the kind comments and support. I appreciate. <3

    It is best that you take a break from building. You can come back later if you would like to , when your real life isn’t as busy. You want to enjoy the time when you are simming, so taking a break from simming can be beneficial.

    I agree with Rose; it's about enjoying the game. I know that I am in a creative slump. But I am playing again, so there is that! Enjoy your time off and I look forward to when your muse returns. (And mine!)

    Thank you for all your support ever since the first build. I really appreciate it and I know you go out of your way. Thank you again. :)

    Definitely! That's great! My muse has decided to take a different direction, but I do look forward to seeing your next builds! Take your time. :) Thank you for all your support on my builds. You've been here as long as Rose and your guys's comments have always brightened my day.

    Hi guys! I know this is coming as a surprise and I’m sorry about it. Building in the sims 3 has brought me a lot of joy, but I‘ve decided to go on an indefinite hiatus. I may come back to it, but chances are so far that I will not. Thank you all so, so much for the support. I really appreciate it and I will not forget it moving forward.
    I'm really sorry about the November build and hope I haven't stepped on any toes!

    Sincerely,

    Mpart

    Speaking for myself, no toes stepped on. This is supposed to be a place to share what you've created. If you are moving on, that is totally understandable. I will miss seeing your work, of course. So, is your creativity moving in a new direction, or is life just redirecting your energy? If you don't mind sharing.

    I know I have many people "suggesting" that I put my energy into more solid creations. I do paper craft called quilling, and have a couple projects sitting unfinished. I'm also "supposed" to be picking up my piano lessons from where I left off years ago. Unfortunately, as of right now, no muse has appeared for any of these outlets. I do hope one surfaces soon. It feels like my creativity is a stagnant pool in my soul just waiting for at least a ripple to disturb its surface!

    Thank you so much! It's a bit of both actually. I'm moving onto a new chapter in my life and have found myself focusing on several other hobbies. One of them is art which is surprising to me.
    As for putting more energy into "solid" creations, I say do what you love. For me, I always have to have at least 3 hobbies or I'll burn myself out too much. I jump from one hobby to another. I completely understand the feeling! My advice would be to try something new and even if you aren't the best at it, see if it makes you happy. That's what matters the most. :)

    LOL, 3? Something new? You should see the boxes of art supplies scattered across my bedroom that cover a myriad of craft types! That's my problem. Staying focused at least long enough to finish one major project once I learn the basics. I tend to get easily disatra.... oohh, shiny!

    In fairness, my one, true love was cross stitch. Unfortunately, my eyes can't handle the strain anymore. Or, at least they couldn't last I tried. I am thinking of trying again, since I have a couple unfinished projects that I would like finished, even if they become my swan song.

    But, as long as I'm having fun, that is the most important thing to me. Which is why this slump is bothering me. I'm NOT having fun, or creating. I'm just hoping I pop out of it soon. Regardless of how or to do what. We'll see. If nothing else, spring will bring gardening back.

    Yep! I'm currently at five which...I don't have time for, but hey, I love it! Man, I understand that feeling way, way too well.

    I'm really sorry to hear that. It plum to lose a hobby!
    That is the most important thing. I can't wait for Spring myself. It's been a long Winter already.
