A FEW ANNOUNCEMENTS:


1. For those of you who were interested in my sales, thank you. If you have already informed me of your interest, I will be going through the accounts and the requests over the next week or so and I will get back to you if I haven't already.

MY PLAN: To sell the majority of the items in my extra accounts, giving priority to those who have already shown interest.

I also plan to have some $2 sales for items I don't care as much about. I will also have some normal sales where you can get some great deals.

So, if you continue to check this blog, you will be among the first to know! :)

2. YES, I do plan to have SMW make another return as a comps blog. In just the few days I have been back, I have missed the comps. I feel it gives us all something fun to do and challenges our creativity. My last final is May 4th so stay tuned!


In the interim......what do I need????? JUDGES, WRITERS, GRAPHIC DESIGNERS...

If you are interested let me know what you would like to do. A note, I will pick first from those loyal members who have been around for awhile. SMW Royalty I guess you could say. So, if you have the time, let me know.

HOW LONG WILL THIS LAST?: Honestly, I don't know. At least for the summer :). My main objective will be to get rid of a lot of the extra items I have as prizes.

We all know that life and college tends to get in the way of the best laid plans. So I will do my best to not get so overwhelmed again.

3. I would really love to work with the blog and give it some sort of makeover, so if there are any graphics designers interested in helping please contact me. Anyone who knows me, knows I stink at graphics. That has not changed lol.


So ta ta  for now dollies! I hope you are as excited as I am!  

OH AND PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD TO NEWER MEMBERS WHO HAVEN'T HEARD OF SMW!

ALSO, PLEASE LIKE THE SMW PAGE ON FB AND FRIEND ME @JENNA STARDOLL ON FB.

So I have decided to consolidate some of my old family accounts down to 2. That means I will be selling off a lot of old stuff. I may be keeping some for potential prizes, but most will be going.

So, if you still check this blog then yippee for you, you will be one of the first ones to know. I am concentrating on stardollar items first because I seem to have more starcoins than I know what to do with, but I will sell some of those items too...especially if I have multiple.

The accounts are:

Dinahdoll22
Dallas1212
Dallas_1212
Prettygirl1212
Sparkle_Magazne
Devon223 (boys clothes)
Smtopmodeljan08
Smtopmodelmar08
One_of_a_kind_
Jadenmarie08
Sparklefashions
Butterfly_shop
Fashion_Patrol_
The_Pet_Shop
Jaelin-Rose
Ms_Sparkle_2008
SparkleBallroom

Contact me in my Emorox4eva gb and give me a detailed list of you are interested in, the account and price. It also helps tremendously if you take a photo as I don't remember the names of half the stuff.

(I am not auctioning or bidding. Just looking for a fair, honest market value. I don't know or have the time to find out what everything is worth).

Hello.....Hello....Hello....

Just wondering if there is anyone at all out there and if this would reach anyone. If so, hello! I have been gone for a long time and just decided to stop in and say hello and see if any of my old friends are still out there. If no one see this... well, then thanks for the memories SMW. 

And if you happen upon this blog, take a look back at all the old competitions. It was truly an amazing ride and we had a blast doing it.

xoxo, Jenna

No goodbyes, just hello


I began blogging in 2009, and in that time I wrote for this exact blog. I never got to say goodbye when I stopped in 2011, for reasons unimportant, so maybe this is a goodbye for both times, as yes - I am leaving SMW today. Brigitte will fill you in soon as there is more info to come, but for now I just truly felt that I needed to put my voice out here.

DESIGN WARS - THE FINAL ROUND


Apologies for the incredible delay, I must say I was in trouble with the prizes of this comp. I was hoping that Jenna would return sometime, but now that all of her accounts are deactivated, I want to finish off a few things on my own - including the results of the Pink for October challenge and Halloween Couture comp.

Design Wars ended up being a mess because lots of people left or changed their minds during the half year (!!!) this comp lasted. Here are the contestants who have made it to the 5th and final round:

HB Embellished Prep Sweater poll


Poll is open until April 12 (Sunday)

Vote for your top 3 favorites!

Please no asking for votes or cheating. Polls are for blog members only.

Spoilers


A whole bunch of new spoilers were revealed today, thanks to Maria-0077 for the picture. There are various items, but majority consists of windblown gowns from all kinds of designers. We're not sure what this could be yet, some say it's new JetSet, while others predict new floors of the Royalty store. Well, I can say that it's not supposed to be limited since the beginning of this week was still for Subcouture (it's so sad that basically every week we get a kind of limited store...)

Feel free to help me look for the real versions!

The Price is Right: HB Edition - Sky Boots

The second Hot Buy of the month has been released! Here are the results for this Hot Buys..

Subcouture comp winners


 Decided to pick 4 winners!
They are...

New collection of Splendid


This morning a few new pieces were added to the accessory shop Splendid. The collection is pretty small, but I didn't even expect a larger release since the Killah/Miss Sixty sale and Subcouture will still remain available for today. You'll find all kinds of jewellery from hairclips to piercings, plus a remake of Lady Gaga's infamous The Fame crystal glasses. Prices range from 2 to 14 stardollars and the ruby lips are SS-only.
