hellowave  Blossoms! :flowersmilie:

This is both an entrance and exit of sorts, before I scamper off on my current Sims 2 mission.

I've been creating for the Sims since it's conception and finally have time to indulge in my creative endeavors again. However, in order to do so, I realized that I need to have a StephSim Renaissance of sorts! Basically, I want to create a bubble of positivity and simplicity around myself. For me, that means being a little more low key and delving into working on a few creative projects.

I am most excited about returning to the roots of my creations, which means inspiration is my guide and there are no limits around creating. Since, I've been in a medieval state of mind, there has been a great liberation of ideas as I pull non-medieval things in my game again and become reacquainted with old CC and CC I've yet to use.  Just the thought of these things sets my juices flowing.  summerB9

While I will comment on a few new creations and creators from time to time, I truly plan to exist in building, recoloring and actually playing the game for a while. I will share select things from time to time, but it is time I enjoy the game and create my own little oasis in-game.  Time for a bit of self-love and simplicity!

I did come in search of an item which I have a recolor for and no mesh, but realized that in truth, I have everything I need within my archives.  Oddly enough, my desire for doing what is practical, sustaining and time conservative is winning out these days. I plan to only "enjoy" my Simming time, as frustration can only exist when I indulge in things that do no sustain me. There will be no more of that really. It's simply NOT necessary.

Which is great news from a personal point of view. I will be around, mainly browsing and offering encouragement where I can. But, today...I must head back into my creator's workshop, as I have a few things to finalize and share, as well as a new inspirational lot that I'm bursting to make a reality for the sole purpose of starting a neighborhood and playing the game.

But, before I go, I just wanted to say:
To all the creators who have contributed to and created for Cherry Blossom Sims (in all of reincarnations) over the years. I am most grateful for the content I've collected over the years and now I plan to truly enjoy playing with them!

Hi StephSim,

Welcome to Cherryblossom Sims.  I visit Plumb Bob Keep often
and have a ton of wonderful treasures in my files.  I recently
featured your Storybrooke Mayoral Mansion in our Spotlight
Collection series because it is amazing. Here

I am a story writer so I play the Sims 2 game because it
generates my imagination.  Your Gwrych Village is a Kingdom
I play often.

Have fun in the downloads.

Hi StephSim, it is great to read how you go about to sustain your creative juices! Aren't we in all like that in a way. When I am really on a roll, I do not want to go look around the forums in plain fear of seeing something that is going to throw me off my tracks.

But, it would be absolutely lovely to have you around often!

Enjoy your stay every time!

Just popping in to say "thau for the warm Welcome. :girlie5:

I don't plan on leaving the community permanently, just relocating and prioritizing as I need to for the moment. flirty

@ Broomhilda cherry
Girl, I think you really must have a magical broom, because you are EVERYWHERE. :)  I appreciate your being the first to comment and for your support. I wanted to say that aloud to you, as I feel nothing but love from you always!  :redrose:

@ Easter cherry
I read your post just before logging-off yesterday. While I will no longer frequent PBK, the PBK "Community" has been wonderful overall. Most of the people there are truly beautiful and there is some crazy talent there as well. As so many others before me, the Universe let's you know when the Season comes to take the path less taken and do what is right for you in your heart.

About Storybrooke...
:thy: for the "Feature". I am honored and most grateful that the lot will be shared with as many people as possible, as it truly was a labor of pure creative insanity and love.

I am a new fan of Once Upon A Time and creating Regina's mansion was a major source of inspiration for me. It was a request by my good friend, The Ninth Wave (Jon). I needed so many things that I simply could not easily find. So, I started recoloring objects (mainly furniture), created my first shared Sim outside of self-sims (Regina in 3 Versions) AND started recoloring clothing (so far sharing the wardrobe for Lady Regina at PBK, with the wardrobe for Mayor Regina already packaged and ready to go). I truly have Jon to thank for all of that creative madness, but I learned so much from the experience.

Easter, I'm glad you enjoy playing in Gwrych as well, but more important...I wish you the best in your writing endeavors. I absolutely love how so many people use Simming as a segue into writing. Do you have a blog or site with your writing? I'd love to add it to my bookmarks for reading.  (I just found your latest story here on CBS and have bookmarked it for future reading).

I'm quietly reading and following several Sim (and a few non-Sim) stories. While I take a back seat, I do find something of value in everything I read and love seeing people openly sharing what they love in a way that is meaningful to them.

@ Lisa cherry
I giggled yesterday, as I ended staying on-line for a while multi-tasking and "exploring" CBS to see where things are and just getting a feel for the environment again. I was surprised to see that I posted 6 things before going offline. So, I am humbled by the fact that I must truly enjoy the environment, since I kept the site opened as I was doing other things. Thank you for indulging my "WHY????".  I was on a roll yesterday collecting things and planned to be in and out of CBS without notice. But, I suppose the Universe had other plans for me.  thlol

@ Crissi cherry and  Anneke cherry
Hello and Thank you for the welcome!

@ Anita cherry
Yes. I do think it is important to have and find balance with Simming. It's so easy to get lost in things, but we are always better for stepping back when we need to, as in returning we have so much more to share. And the 'distractions' can be endless.  But, despite my propensity to be chatty, I also am equally impressive and stepping back and simply allowing others to be, while I stay engaged from behind the scenes. :)

For General Simming Information (as I saw someone express concern):
I'm doing a bit of Sim multi-tasking at the moment and my desktop (which is usually empty) looks like a disaster area. First, I'm setting up a "small" Sim site to share my latest collection of downloads (mainly recolors since I am relatively new to recoloring) for now.  My Second task is to share different versions of the "American Gothic" lot I recently posted on MTS. The Third Task is to put the finishing touches on a Witches Academy for my husband, David (Sophie-David) and share that.  Then, I will lose myself in my personal Sim project, which will be the fledglings of my new neighborhood. The lot I'm creating is for my SimSteph (my self-sim) and a great way to take things easy for a while.  

So, I shall for now bid everyone adieu and get back to sharing the things I promised, before taking a little time to simply enjoy this crazy game that holds us willing hostage! :2hearts:
