Grand Opening Success!

Collage by SeleneLily Galicia
I wanted to do a follow up blog on the Grand Opening we had November 20. What a day! We had a blast and it was a great success. We literally had 15 to 20 people on the sim all day and all evening long. What a wonderful turnout and now I think more know that the sim is here and hope they will return again and again :D I've noticed quite a few have posted pictures they took while visiting, and they're all beautiful. I just love to see everyone's talents and their favorite areas of the sim captured in pictures. I hope if you haven't already, you will enter our photography contest with some of those pictures. The blog before this one explains it all in detail. There's also a poetry contest going on.

Faery Sola of Studio Sidhe launched her brand new Unicorn multi-pose prop (5 poses) at Enchanted and it was very successful. She now has it available at her store, too. The pricing is amazing for all the work that was put into it...only 500L! We had other vendors on the sim that day, Simply Fae, Evie's Closet, Fallen Gods and Elvenbreath all participated. All the vendors were very generous and gave a percentage or all of their sales to our animal rights fund we donate to, Friends of Animals. The total we made from the vendors alone was approximately 20,000L! That is excellent for one day of sales! All of this money will be donated to the fund.

We also had a DJ who played at the sim for 2 rounds, 3 hours each. His name is Jack and he played a variety of music, anything from Enya to Rock. The second round we had quite a few out on the dance "pond" showing their moves. Even Squiffy the unicorn was out there dancing!

I want to thank my good friend, SeleneLily Galicia for her help hosting the Opening and also for helping with getting the word out about the Opening. Also, thank you to Faery Sola for all her hard work on the Unicorn and having it done in time for the Opening. She's become someone I consider not just a "business partner", but a nice and good friend in the process :) Most of all, thank you for everyone's support of the sim! I'm so glad you are enjoying it! I've heard so many different descriptions, "peaceful", "beautiful", "amazing", "so much put into it", "reminds me of my childhood", "like a fairy tale", and the list goes on. Thank you all and please visit any time!

An Enchanted GRAND OPENING Saturday, November 20!

I know I've rather neglected this blog since Enchanted opened! I've been busy working on other things, plus have been out of town off and on quite a bit. I have something very special I need to tell you about. Yes, we opened Enchanted a while back, but never had an "official" Grand Opening, so we plan to do that next Saturday the 20th of November. I hope everyone can come :) Our major event is the launching of one of my favorite creator's (Faery Sola of Studio Sidhe) latest and most magical creations yet! If you're a fantasy buff like me and love beautiful and magical things, you can't miss this! Here is the slurl to the sim:

We will also have a photo and poetry contest you can enter at the event. There will be first, second and third prizes for each contest given away. All photos need to be taken in Enchanted of Elven Realm, plus poems written should be original, fantasy themed, and use Enchanted as inspiration :) I can't wait to see all that creativity out there! You may submit pictures to the Enchanted group site on Flickr. Please just type "contest entry" as the caption and upload the picture. You will have to join the group first, it is open enrollment. Here is the link:

As far as the poetry contest, please submit your poems on a notecard in Second Life to my avie, Natalie Montagne. You may also submit to my email at Be sure to put your name on them! Both contests earliest entry must be on the day of the event or after. We will accept entries up until December 5, and the winners will be announced on December 7.

We are planning to have a DJ off and on the day of the event and possibly some other things in store. A percentage of all proceeds from the event will benefit the Friends of Animals fund. Hope to see you there!
