More new releases for Home & Garden Expo

You have to love the WordPress function that allows you to schedule a blog post for delayed publishing. As you read this, I am on an internet/cell phone free vacation somewhere in Italy. Yay!

But I had to share some more brand new releases from –Hanaya- that are available at the Home & Garden Expo.

-HanayaMesh- Curved Bridge

I do a lot of custom work for store and home owners, and one thing I find is that many people like curved bridges and walkways that allow for extra interest as you move through the landscape. Our curved bridge is a building component that is part of our custom-landscape design portfolio, but it works well as a stand alone piece. The bridge itself is 4 prims, with a Land Impact of 15.

The piece is fully retexturable – it comes with a simple wood finish but can be modified with any wood texture you like. Talk to me if you need texturing assistance!

-HanayaMesh- MIA Floor Lamp

This lamp bears my name .. because it is a total replica (from memory) of my first lamp in my first apartment after I finished university. It is pretty and multi-functional – the glass shelves work great as a display area for a plant or a special item, and the lamp itself turns on/off by touch.

The set includes a low poly as well as high poly model for your convenience.

 -HanayaMesh- Snake Plant in Wrought Iron Clay Planter

A final piece I want to show you today is a brand new mesh Wrought Iron Clay Planter. We stuffed one of our snake plants in it, seeing as they can tolerate fairly dry soil and obviously this planter will not hold in much water 🙂

We hope you have time to visit all the awesome stores at the Home & Garden Expo, and that you will drop by and see us as well.

We are located at Dreamseeker Home Expo14 .

-Hanaya- new stuff @ Home & Garden Expo

My team and I are excited to be one of the exhibitors at this year’s Home & Garden Expo – a fabulous event which benefits Relay for Life.

We have been working hard to ensure that most of the products for sale at the Expo are brand new and exciting. Let me show you a few of them …

-HanayaMesh- Cowry Shell

The Cowry Shell is probably my favourite piece for the Home & Garden Expo. It is a 100% mesh 3-D sculpted piece that I hope will look great in your house, store or garden. Although I generally sell my art pieces as no-modify – this one is mod, so that you can size it to fit appropriately into your space.

-HanayaMesh- Miku Table & Chairs Set

I have to admit that I get teased about making primmy stuff. And I do, and will likely continue to do so. But for those of you who have come to appreciate the quality of the products from our store may like this simple table and chairs set. At only 5 prims / 5 Land Impact points for the whole set, even a prim-miser should be happy! The set is 100% mesh with baked textures, and includes chairs with menu-driven poses for guys and girls.

If you like this set, and have more prims available, you might like our Miku Modular Deck Set.

-Hanaya- Miku Modular Deck Set

The Miku Modular Deck Set includes the table and chairs described above, plus 5 types of deck building  blocks as shown in the image. The basic slatted and solid blocks are only 1 prim/1 LI each including shadows. The cacti building blocks vary in prim count, depending on the type. Our mesh salad bowl, based on a real life one in my pantry, holds colourful peppers to add a touch of tex-mex ambiance to your outdoor environment.

So come visit us at the Home & Garden Expo starting on May 19th – we are on Dreamseeker Home Expo14.

May News + Group Gift from -Hanaya-

It has been absolutely ages since I have blogged! And no, it does not mean that there is nothing new.

One of the reasons for being quiet is that I have been learning some new techniques in 3-D modeling. And after careful consideration, my team and I have decided to limit our use of meshes made by other creators in -Hanaya- products. Instead, we hope to continue to bring you meticulously crafted and textured  creations (made from prims, sculpts and original meshes) that are not available elsewhere.

And speaking of sculpties …

-Hanaya- Welcome Sign (Daisies with Robin)

The group gift for our VIP Customer group, -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles, was sent out today.

It is a summery welcome sign embellished with sculpted daisies and hand-drawn textures. The sign is mod/copy, and comes in 2 sizes – a standard avatar size and sized for petites.

If you missed the group inventory offer, the gift will remain available, as always, in the customer information area of our in-world store for the month of May. For those of you not part of our VIP group – I invite you to join us. The one time group-join fee is 250 Lindens.

March news from -Hanaya-

March – a month of uncertain weather and the promise of spring. And thorough house cleanings – you know, out with the tired and dusty and in with the new.

First, I am happy to announce that the -Hanaya- in-world store has shed most of it’s winter look, and is starting to look like spring is just around the corner. Wintery demos of products have been shelved and new stuff will be appearing before you know it.

One new thing is this month’s -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles VIP Group Gift, which is being sent out today on the group. If you miss yours, please grab it from group notices, or better yet, stop by the store – it will remain available in the Customer Information area for the whole month of March.  For those of you not members, please note that there is a 250 Linden group join fee.

-Hanaya- Driftwood + Glass Table with Potted Caladium

T H I S    M O N T H

Three major undertakings for -Hanaya- this month.

First, a summery line of yummy collectibles, plants, as well as home & garden decor is currently in development. Expect explosions of colour and texture and delicious primness.

The second is ‘running-of-the- business’ related, but of interest to those of you in our VIP group. Our plan is to have a new vendor system in operation by the end of March (as promised here), which will:

  • give our VIP group members 10% off on all -Hanaya- in-store purchases,
  • enable gift delivery options on all in-store products
    (already available on the Second Life Marketplace),
  • make in-store gift cards available.

Part of the vendor system may see a few changes to the layout of our in-world store – so keep an eye out on things, and please excuse the mess.

Lastly, we are taking a lead in a large sim development project, so notices may be a teeny bit scarce over the next few weeks. Yay, less spam from us for a bit!
