-Hanaya- Mesh Cedar Greenhouse

A new release we are really proud of – materials and low land impact. YAY!

Our brand new Mesh Cedar Greenhouse is a 100% original handmade mesh creation made in our shop. The textures comprise of 3 layers to provide a superior look and to take advantage of Materials in current Linden Lab and TPV viewers.

And the best part – the entire greenhouse is only 9 LI with a foot print of 10 x 10 meters.

Other features include opening/closing doors, with optional security and greeting message. To enable these optional features, first make sure you have a backup copy of the greenhouse. Then rez it, edit linked parts and select one of the doors. In the content tab is a notecard called ‘door setup’. Follow the instructions in the notecard to set up group or individual keyhold access, as well as a custom greeting message. Repeat the process for the other door. We do not recommend you unlink the doors.

Now available for purchase on the Second Life Marketplace, -Hanaya- in-world store or PrimBay.

And coming soon, a texture change version with 2 options for each of the 4 seasons. Fitted greenhouse shelving will also be available in the next week or so. For a sneak peek, take a look inside the demo greenhouse that is on display at -Hanaya- in-world.

During the month February, March and April 2014, the greenhouse is on display at -Hanaya- in-world store. Eligible for our VIP group members discount, and purchaseable as gift or via -Hanaya- Gift Card.

-Hanaya- gifts and news!

We’re back!      Almost.

Exciting happenings in our real life have conspired to keep the -Hanaya- team busy over the last weeks, and likely will continue to do so for the next few months. Happy things, like plenty of international travel, an upcoming move to southern Germany, and most importantly as it relates to Second Life – more time spent on 3-d modelling.

That is not to say that we have been totally lazy in Second Life.
Some news:

The new -Hanaya- flagship store is complete, and will open soonish. We can’t wait to show it to you guys!

All that is left to do is to implement the vendor system, which we promised you guys ages ago. Finally, we will have proper gift cards, a redelivery terminal, an ability to do group discounts etc.

And speaking of groups – here is the May group gift for -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles VIPs.

Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas!

Today is a day to give back a little something to loyal -Hanaya- friends and customers to thank you guys for your support and encouragement over the last 12 months.

-HanayaMesh- Gift Box Earrings

-HanayaMesh- Gift Box Earrings | in-world group and Subscribe-O-Matic gift

First, a little gift for the girls – teeny little mesh Gift Box Earrings. And yeah, that is me modelling them in my Edelweiss Santa dress and reindeer horns. And since we have a few guys in our various groups who may not want to wear them, if you IM me in-world, I will pass you a no copy/transfer version so you can give it as gift to your fave girl.

-HanayaMesh- 2012 Christmas Gift Boxes for Giving

-HanayaMesh- 2012 Christmas Gift Boxes for Giving

This is the third Christmas that -Hanaya- has been in operation. And each year, we have new gift boxes – ones that you can stuff your own gift into and pass to a friend or loved one. The pack contains 4 round and 4 square gift boxes and there are 2 of each included – so you get a total of 16.

This year’s gift boxes are, as usual, for sale @ -Hanaya- in-world and on the Second Life Marketplace. As well, a set will be sent out on the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles in-world group.

Lastly, please note that we will be on vacation from December 24th to January 2nd, and will only have access to Second Life and email via iPhone.

-Hanaya- does sci-fi @ CINEMA

Not to be missed, the fabulous CINEMA event opened yesterday evening.

Even if you do not spend a single linden on all the cool stuff available for sale, you must see the complex, all-mesh build commissioned by organizer extraordinaire RubyStarlight Writer (Exposeur + Hottie Cooterati). The amazing custom build was created by Isla Gealach-Nayar (Cheeky Pea) and Kaz Nayar (Pilot).

Moriko Inshan of -Hanaya- makes final adjustments before opening

-Hanaya- has 5 brand new, exclusive products for the event – original mesh pathfinding robots.

A collaborative effort between Moriko Inshan and Lance Corrimal, the 5 adorable robots made their first global appearance at the Cinema 2012 event in Second Life yesterday.

Utilizing the Havok physics engine, the robots are programmed for pathfinding, which allows for real-time collision avoidance in three dimensions.

“Designing the robots and then creating the meshes was a really fun project”, says Moriko Inshan, lead conceptualizer, designer and creator. Moriko is the creative force behind -Hanaya-, a 2 year old virtual business in Second Life.

Lance Corrimal, developer of the Dolphin Viewer, is the scripter who makes the robots tick. Lance says: “Designing the behaviour of these guys was fun. I just wish pathfinding wasn’t so limited – right now all you can do are things that move on the land or on firm surfaces. Imagine what you could do with this if it could drive flying or swimming things.”

Visit -Hanaya- at Cinema in the Sci-Fi theatre section, and grab our customer gift.

Hammy the Hamster: a gift from -Hanaya-

Hi guys!

To celebrate my real life birthday, which is tomorrow, we decided to bring you guys something extra cute and sweet as a group gift for the month of August.
And better yet, the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles group will be free to join from today to Sunday, August 5th, 2012.

So if you are not a member yet, find us in search, or stop by our in-world store to join up and get your own Hammy Hamster.

-Hanaya- A Day with Hammy Hamster

Thanks to custom scripting work by my darling brother-in-law, Lance Corrimal, we are proud to introduce A Day with Hammy Hamster – an addition to your Second Life home or store that is fun to play with.

Our smart little hamster, Hammy, will go through his day doing hamstery things – either with you, or all on his own.

When he is alone, Hammy will exercise on his wheel (which really turns), then hop off and eat, drink and go into his house for a rest.

But if you join him, it will be twice the fun, because you get to stuff your face. Or quench your thirst – but with coffee, not water like Hammy.

I like the exercise part the best – grit your teeth and do sit ups! When you get tired, have a little nap with Hammy. But be careful, Hammy sometimes gets out of his cage!

The renovations at our in-world store are coming along:

  • the store teleport system is now installed and operational at the landing point
  • an additional garden space has been added on both sides of the store, providing more greenery and cute stuff
  • products are still being shuffled around, but feel free to browse and IM if you can’t find what you need

Our storefront at the Vintage Fair 2012 is all set up and we have lots of brand new products to offer you. Next blog post will feature some of what you can expect from -Hanaya- at the fair. The fair opens on August 4th.

New for Summer Days @ -Hanaya-

I know that the stuff I sell in my Second Life store is often inspired by my real life, and today’s new releases are no exception.

Even though the weather in Europe has been rather gloomy and cool, my tomato plants are doing well. I check on them every morning, coffee in hand, inspecting the size of the little green blobs and drooling at the thought of toasted tomato sandwiches, salads with grilled tomatoes, and yes, fried green tomatoes with our Sunday morning bacon and eggs. Yumm!

-Hanaya- Charlie Brown’s Bagged Tomato

My better half offered up the name for our cute Bagged Tomato plant – and on hearing it, I instantly agreed. A juicy, shiny, perfectly ripe tomato hangs from a non-tomato vine, begging to be harvested.

Planted in a vertical bag planter, it will hardly take up any room and is a cute edible decor item that can be attached to a garden or house wall, or a fence. Or how about growing it inside, right in your kitchen?

Eight prims, including shadows and copy, modify permissions as always with our products.

-Hanaya- Picnic Table + Benches with Lantern *

I am a nature girl from way back, so camping and hanging around outside is my thing.

The -Hanaya- Picnic Table comes with 2 benches, and contains 6 synchronized couple cuddle animations (3 for guys and 3 for girls). The animations are fully adjustable and are menu-driven.  The camp lantern adds a bit of gentle light on summer evenings.

The Bagged Tomato and Picnic Table set are on display on the main floor of our in-world store, where they are available for purchase. Or if you prefer, buy in our web store on the Second Life Marketplace.


O T H E R    N E W S

We are thrilled to announce that we are once again participating in Vintage Fair 2012. Lots of new stuff is currently in progress in our workshop and we can’t wait to show it to you guys!

The Vintage Fair starts on August 2nd (my real life birthday), and ends of August 29th. It promises to be a wonderful event, so please stay tuned for more information.

If you have stopped by our in-world store lately, you will have been greeted with a message about … ‘we are under construction, please excuse the mess’.
The mess is not over yet, but progress is being made.

First, we are installing a store teleport system, which will take you seamlessly to the 4 product areas:

  • Main Floor:                    Flowers + Plants
  • Second Floor:                Furniture Sets
  • Third Floor:                    Decor + Buildings
  • Outside at the rear:      Art Garden

Big thank you goes to my brother-in-law, Lance Corrimal, for scripting the system.

The customer service area on the main floor is currently being re-worked as well – to make room for our redelivery terminal and gift card system (coming soon I hope), and to tidy it up. We have also added lots of new plant life to decorate the gardens – look especially for the wonderfully detailed dragon flies near the creek.

Thanks for reading and have a happy weekend!

* Please note the shadows in the Picnic Table product image above are client-side.

-Hanaya- for Keep Calm and Keep Shopping Event

A one-of-a-kind mesh shelf with 3 Fleurs Japonica is the -Hanaya- item for Keep Calm and Keep Shopping Event.

The event starts on May 14th and continues through May 28th. Unlike other shopping-related events in Second Life, this one has a twist that will take shoppers to individual stores rather than one laggy location. For a list of the participating merchants, check the Keep Calm and Keep Shopping Event web site.

-Hanaya- Fleurs Japonica + Wave Shelf

Each store has at least 1 brand new, never to be sold again item. Promises to be tons of fun shopping, and perhaps you will discover stores that are new to you.

Have a great day!
