DOTY 2011

I decided to enter the DOTY (Designer of the Year) Competition over at Black Pearl Sims this year. I did okay..made it through the first 3 rounds, then my game died..... I have lost everything and have to start from scratch again. It happens to the best of us so I am sure I am in good company. I had to pull out of the competition, which killed me but hey shit happens right?

Modern English Cottage Garden

My challenge to you. 
"A young couple just brought a modern house that he fell in love with and they both have grown to like it a lot... but the trouble in paradise is that she can't stand the bare garden (as they often are in newly developed areas). She is a sucker for romantic English gardens, but knows that a full out English cottage garden will properly not fit the house very well... so she called you... do you think you can help her?"

Easter Shot

Romantic Bedroom 2 Styles.

I was asked by SF Mag to create a Romantic Bedroom using the color of the year "Honeysuckle Pink" I couldn't decide on a modern or shabby room so I did both..lol They picked the modern one for the issue.

EA Makeover

"Make over this EA space. Bring some life, color and stylish d├ęcor to this “bad room.” Decorate the space for a Sim looking to buy their first home, fully furnished and decorated so they have to do no work of their own" Living Sims

Pre School Playground.

"The local pre-school wants to hire you! They want to makeover their outdoor space, because they just got a special grant for it! Last time there was money to do anything with it was in 1985, so you can imagine that everything is pretty run down by now. They want a sandbox, some pathways for tri-bikes and play-carts, swings with a good soft area under it. And they want a teaching garden, so they can grow tomatoes with the kids and talk about where food comes from. They also wants some flower, but they have to be sturdy - who knows then they will be able to replace them if the kids are too rough on them.
I hope you will help them out.

Vampire Crypt

"All people need a home, even the dead ones.
All people want a nice place to live, even the dead ones.
All people want a spot to relax, sleep and have fun, even the dead ones.
We need to give a home to those who don´t like the sun but love the night.
Lets make a home for your friendly neighborhood vampire sim."
Living Sims

My poor lonely Vamp lives here in this crypt waiting for eternity to end. He lost his one true love while he was mortal, days after they were wed. He sits in here and waits till they can be together again

Modern Garden

"Fence of a 40-140 square space behind their house (pick any nice 3 bedroom house). This will area will be their garden space. You should turn this empty canvas into a nice garden for the family. Remember they have two small kids.
The garden should be one of the following styles: modern minimalism, country, water garden or Mediterranean."
