Sunday, Nov 29th 4pm SLT
Tonight our Masterminds take to the stage for an exclusive production. You can’t see these designs anywhere else, you’ve got to be at the show to peek into the minds of our creators.
ALL are welcome to the show.
You’re a Mastermind, you were born to create!
Join us today.
Velentis Presents – second Mastermind Meet up!
Yesterday, Novemeber 8, @ 4pm SLT (Pst) we brainstormed!
Velentis Presents – Brainstorming!
This week we brainstormed big ideas and got a quick look at two masterminds at work as they showed off their inspirational rendition of what “It’s a Wonderful Life” is inspiring them to create!
Panundrum presented images of a 1940’s outfit and Kizmut showed a tree while telling us a tale of peace that the tree means to him.
Ashuri, though unable to attend, also submitted his title and inspiration for his interpretation of the times, the magic & the message of the film.
We dove into hard topics, answering the question:
What keeps you from completing your projects?
Even if you could not attend this week’s meet-up, I encourage you to do the exercise on your own & reap the benefits because when we know better we do better.
If we can identify our distractions, fears, & negative self-talk we can begin to catch ourselves in the act, and redirect that energy into succeeding.
Next Sunday, November 15th @ 4pm SLT (pst) is the official launch of our very first Velentis Presents Show & tell! Audience members are both welcomed and encouraged to attend!
Haven’t signed up for the challenge yet?

Velentis Presents – First Mastermind Meet up!
Yesterday, Novemeber 1, @ 4pm SLT (Pst) we kicked off the very first
Velentis Presents Challenge!
The meet started with a getting-to-know-you/getting-to-know info session followed by the reveal of the “It’s A Wonderful Life” Challenge theme!( challenge details & printable sheets coming later this week.)
Next up we had a fun-filled brainstorming session to answer the question “What does It’s a Wonderful Life mean to you?”
The crowd was filled with ideas. Kizmut talked about the gadgets and doodads of the 1940’s, Jeran, Ashuri, Panudrum, Selina, & Wynd joined in too! Other members of our audience talked about the joys of Christmas & there was even chatter about faires! I totally forgot about the angel fairy part of this tale; did you too? With the crisp winter winds this morning, maybe it’s a good day to snuggle up with a cocoa in hand & rewatch this film & relive the memories again.
It’s fun to take these nostalgic walks into the films of the past and learn the subtleties that bring emotions ranging from the sorrows of the Great Depression to joyous memories of our families, piled in the living room with cocoa & cookies on Christmas Eve.
Lastly, we wrapped up the night with Q & A!
We passed out VP group invites, giving exclusive use rights to our private build box, & everyone got Gifts sponsored by Wynd Ling of Wyndaveres.
Wouldn’t you like to become a Mastermind? Join us & let’s see what goes on inside your creative mind!

The Meaning of Life.. Solved
Now that I have your attention with the heavy click bait title, I come open to you and promise more than click bait, as I believe I have really found the meaning of life, or the meaning of MY life as I am sure your purpose and meaning of YOUR life is unique to you. Why else would we have so many humans on earth ?
We all must have a reason to be here, a purpose that only you understand, a gift that is yours to give.
Without begin a total buzz kill – life has a funny way of telling us to love what we have.
Sometimes to take a break, we’ve gotta get knocked out health-wise and that’s exactly how it happened to me. I got sick.
Life, the limited time we get to visit earth was put into perspective, forcing me to take long walks, enjoy sunsets, and learn to appreciate all the tiny details of life. The experience has been amazing, I have never paused to learn to love me, always pouring all I have into the work, the thrill of busy always calling.
Through my illness I learned what I value most- family, friends, artists, creators, inventors, innovators & being a member of your team-cheering you on in ALL of your artistic endeavors !
I also got to explore the very depths of my soul and my soul is an artist. This work, job, my art, & being able to teach & encourage you is my reason for my life. A piece of me is in all of you and in my art too.
My passion for creation is as strong as ever!
Please visit my Second Life Marketplace to see the pieces of me in each of my creations. Stop by my home in Second Life to share your creations with me.
Completed! The Popcorn Tree
It was a fun project created the 3D model (mesh) for The Popcorn Tree children’s clothing store & working to meet the needs of little Miss MaddiesonRose. This was just the type of project I needed to keep me cheerful in our nearly post- apocalyptic scenario with the onset of Covid-19.
With all the bad news out there, let’s take just a moment to celebrate that we have Second Life !
Second Life residents have been practicing the art of staying home, keeping our hands to ourselves *winks* & creating vivid virtual worlds to escape to for YEARS!
Imagine if we didn’t have our online friends, family, homes, clubs, stores, and virtual experiences?!
IMAGINE if we had…NO INTERNET !!! *gasps* that would be awful.
BUT, since we do have our virtual lives, let’s take a moment to be thankful, to wish good health to ALL the people of earth too.
Thanks for being here- enjoying Second Life & thank you to all of you- the artists, builders, painters, content creators, business owners, scriptors, hosts/hostests, DJs, live entertainers, riggers, and model makers who make this place the greatest escape!

What’s your big idea?
Years ago I found myself in a conundrum. I was missing out!
I was missing out on conversations, friends stopping by to say hello, hugs and kisses from loved ones all for one reason- I had a a problem, a flipping problem.
I’d be at a party, or in the audience at the Snail races, or on my own sim brainstorming with clients – all the while missing key moments flipping.
The moment would hit me, the “My Big Idea” would come and I’d start flipping. I was flipping back and forth between Google Docs (now Google Drive), scribbling on post-it notes, in my sketch book, on napkins scattered on my desk – not only was this a fire hazard and caused many ideas to got lost on the floor or to have fallen into the trash, but I was going flipping mad!
Somewhere in those piles of frustration “My Big Idea” was born. The “My Big Idea HUD” is an inworld, UI driven HUD for Second Life. It allows you to stop the flipping and to jot down ideas on the go, AND you can even hit the “e-mail icon” to send those ideas to your phone, all from Second Life!
We’ve got many styles to choose from, your ideas are unique and so should be the HUD you write them in.
Don’t go flipping MAD like I nearly did, purchase your very own “Note Keeper” today.
Get it on Wyndaveres Second Life Marketplace.
For a full list features see our Note Keeper Support page.
