Wow, can y'all say forever? lol I've been away for awhile and have been tied up in mad real life stuff. Someone very close to me passed away recently, and needless to say, it was tough. It still is. BUT I am starting to return to normal, whatever that may be, soo...

I'm UPDATING my boutique! :D :D Finally, I know..I still owe a contest prize to handbaghailey. She was the winner of Project Girlsense: Season 1 on Girls United, the girlsense forum. She worked hard on all the challenges and created these beautiful outfits week after week. So please watch for her winning fashions appearing in my boutique very soon!

Next catch up item is FASHION and OUTFIT of the week! Although I love the ones that are up, they have been up for-eva!! So I'll be on the hunt for new ones. If you have someone you would like to suggest, please comment here, PM me on Girls United, Polyvore or Runway Vixens and of course Girlsense. My username is, as always, Stylechix19!♥

Please do me a favor and visit fresno559, angelinamc and mamabee. They are great designers and more importantly, awesome people.

Stay tru y'all♥

Saying Goodbye to Summer

My gals went back to school on August 17th but I know most other gals started more recently. September 22nd marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. Time just seems to fly by. Already the holidays are fast approaching. I will be 10 times more busy than I am now, which, believe me, seems near impossible! LOL But what fun is life, if not busy? =]

GUPS will be starting up at Girls United again pretty soon. Won't you come over and follow? If you are not familiar with it, it's a Polyvore Set creation contest. Each week the contestants are given specific criteria they must use in creating their set, and each week the contestant with the lowest score is eliminated :( The last designer the WINNER! It's always a lot of fun and since last season I was a judge, I decided to try my hand at contestant this time around. It's gonna be tough as there are some really incredible set designers out there! So please stop by and cheer me on! =]

Have you tried out yet?? Please click HERE and scroll down, to get an idea about what this amazing site offers. The people there are amazing and it's a fun, friendly, dress-up your dolly fashion site. Please come visit me there! My user, as always is StyleChix19♥

You all are amazing for reading and once again I apologize for my sparatic posts...I am trying harder :D Thanks for reading!

I will miss you all...

I will not be on Girlsense or the forum much in the coming week or so. My mother-in-law, who lives in a very small town, will be coming to stay with us while she receives some MUCH needed care. Since transporting her back and forth (4 hours each way) is completely out of the question, I will be her round the clock nurse. I know you all understand and I will update how things are going. You all are so awesome and I can't even begin to tell you how much all your sweet comments mean to me. VERY appreciated and taken to heart! I will miss you all! =D

When I get "back", I PROMISE to update the Fashion and Outfit of the Week, so keep creating your wonderful works of art!

Stay tru y'all!♥

I know it's been 4eva!!

LOL I haven't wanted to post cuz it would push down my poll and hair tutorial and I want people who aren't familiar with how to navigate blogs, to be able to find them, but I will post soon and I'm fixing to update the Outfit and Fashion of the week, and I think I might add a Boutique of the Week feature...I'm on the hunt! LOL

Stay tru y'all and THANK YOU to my constant readers! (((hugs)))

Oh My Feature!

I put up a poll on Girlsense, to ask the users what is the ONE feature they would want to see on Girlsense first??

I must confess that I want ALL of that! LOL but realistically, if Girlsense could only do one or even two if we're nice, which ones would I want? Well I desperately want to be able to price fashions for a specific user. There are girls from around the WORLD and it's sometimes near impossible to price something and hope that others don't buy it first =D....having said that, I think I would appreciate a Save for Later feature first and a clone tool second. Sometimes it takes a very very very long time for me to make something, and being able to save and come back, would make it all the more sweeter! Also the clone tool!! Sometimes you need to move a deco that you have already placed, well now you have lost your shape, your rotation, your color, everything on that deco style and now you have to try and replicate it! FRUSTRATING to say the least! xD

Girlsense is constantly updating and all the new and past stuff we have is just GREAT! I can't tell you how much I love the new FDS compared...the possibilites are endless if you let them be! ;o) But wouldn't these features be the icing? I think so!

On a side note, there is one other feature that I left off the poll as I thought these above were more important. Girlsense introduced the Outfits feature! BRILLIANT! Just one more creative outlet, but how about if we could PRICE that outfit as ONE. In other words, I make an outfit, (dress, shoes, purse, hair, etc.) and I wanna price the whole group for 500 gcents....then a buyer can come along and get the outfit as one! :D It's so sad to see a beautifully created outfit split up between buyers! :( Pricing OUTFITS, would fix this, but so would being able to price for a specific user! ;o) (hint hint Girlsense)

So tell me what you think? Let's vote and let Girlsense know what we think! After all we are the ones that play, right? :D

How'd you make that HAIR?!?

LOL I get this question A LOT, so I thought I would work up some screen shots and post them here. Hope it helps some of y'all out!

First take a dress or skirt (any will do as long as it covers the head with some to spare so you can cut away a shape. I usually cut out the face and bangs first (above), cuz it's easier for me, but you can start however you like. Then cut the basic shape of the hairstyle you want (below)

After you have the shape you want, carefully cut away all the dress/skirt so that all you are left with is the shape of your hairstyle! (below)

Now you can just select and delete the opacity cut and change the color as you like. The paint and stamp decos are used for textures and shading (below). Use the filters menu as well. The stencil and 3-D filters are GREAT for making hair textures. It takes practice, practice practice. Try different color combos, opacity levels and filters to experiment and see what YOU like! But these are the basics! =D

The Sims 3

I am totally addicted to this game...I waited and waited for them to release it (I already have Sims and Sims2) and now I have's AWESOME! There is something about controlling imaginary people that is FUN! xD Anyone got it? Anyone playing it? Comment! :D

Who will you be today?! :D

Thursday, June 11, 2009


LOL I know, jeez....but finally I am ready to post! There is so much work BEFORE you go on vacation and then so much work AFTER you get back, just trying to groove back into normal routines! xD But I have finally unpacked everything and cleaned house, put away luggage, threw out bad produce and the list goes on and on!

So I had the amazing opportunity to go with my husband to the 2009 Husqvarna Viking convention. And although he had technical training for all the days, we were able to see the resort in all it's glory, at night. I'm a simple folk y'all, so I was dazzled! Enjoy the pics!

Front Entrance of the hotel, it was near impossible to get the whole thing in the shot! lol It was MASSIVE!!

The theme of this resort is an ATRIUM. The whole inside of the resort area is created to look and feel like you are outside! And they did...other than the air conditioning, you couldn't even tell. There are plants and small creeks EVERYWHERE inside! lol

SEE!? lol, the pictures do not do it justice, y'all! Remember ALL of those are from inside the hotel! This last pic is of the ceiling! And now you can see why it seems outside. The entire roof is made of glass and it allows the Texas sun to shine through...just gorgeous!

These next photos are of the various artworks/sculptures that they show throughout the entire resort area. My fave is "Rose", isn't she gawr-geous?! =D

So there you have it! Some of the many pics from my trip! We visited the Dallas World Aquarium as well, but I'll save those pics for another post, another time! I did have a blast and would go again in a second BUT it's good to be home!

Stay Tru y'all♥

Well the countdown is on! My 14 year old leaves in just 8 days to Tennessee for a month! Gaaaaah it's brutal! xD I will miss her so much. A few days after she leaves I am going to join my husband in Dallas! Woohoo! He has a convention but we will have the evenings and a day after convention finishes up! I have never been to Dallas, so if any of y'all know of fun stuff to do there, comment!! I'm looking for ideas! I will have my trusty laptop with me, so hopefully will not be outta touch! Wi-Fi at the hotel for a mandatory 10 stinking bucks a day....ROBBERY! hahahaha, but at least I will be on the information superhighway known as the "Net"...

GUPS wrapped up this week. Now, I know, I know, I missed a couple of updates, the GOOD news is that, if you follow BB's Blog (which you should), then you are all caught up, if not, please head over there and check it out!

I WILL feature the winner though...who was it? Marla? The wonderful set designer who steadily made her way to the top with her consistent improvement and her beautiful and soft sets . Or was it Moose? The fabulous art set designer who wowed us throughout the competition with her excellent attention to detail and her awesome ability to layer. I have to say that as a judge, it was soooo tough to judge the finale, cuz the gals just worked so hard and showed why they were there! So get on with it Speedy, I get it xD....The winner.....MOOSE! (ŊŐ.ΓЄĢΓЄŤς) Check out her awesome feature on BB's Blog!! Now please enjoy my favorite sets of hers. Visit her PV profile and fave and comment these competition winning sets!
