sandy is my favorite

“Adrift in Memories over Paris” by Sandi Snow of Lutz, Florida.

This is my personal favorite from the Florida Competition (aside from mine, of course). I love all of Sandi’s work, and this one has such ease and charm to it.

The background fabric is actually a print of a French map, and I love how she achieved the tucks in the balloon’s ribbon. Her border is absolutely perfect.

Any good sources for clutter CC? I love how you make homes come to life! It’s the little things :)

Ahhhh thank you so much! ❤ Decorating can be frustrating as hell when I don’t have the inspiration or the motivation to use 639020 OMSPs but when it all comes together, it’s worth it. :D aaaaaand that’s why I continue to download clutter even though I must have literal GB of it already. MY WEAKNESS.

ANYWAY. I have clutter from all over the place, but I’m going to do my best to narrow down some major sources!

Ano2uk used to be the go-to spot for clutter - the page still exists, but it’s quite outdated and a lot of the links don’t work anymore (Blackpearlsims, 8-3 Atelier, old livejournals, etc.). However! It’s still worth a look because many of those items are uploaded elsewhere (like Simscave, so definitely make an account there), and they’re organized nicely with pictures so you can find exactly what you need!

Onwards to links…

  • 8-3 Atelier (Simscave link, account required, huge zip with all sets)
  • Amovitam (tons of conversions with great clutter sets in between)
  • Around the Sims (one of my favorite sites since the TS1 days! Sandy has created for every iteration of the game, she’s the best and makes TONS of great clutter for residential and community lots alike)
  • Billyjean (formerly at BPS, maker of one of my favorite kitchen clutter sets which can be found in Simlish HERE!)
  • Cassandre (formerly at BPS, had a TON of clutter sets, especially food! I believe there’s an archive of her stuff at SimPearls although I’m not registered there yet and it requires an account, worth a try though?)
  • Chimerical (extracted maxis items & conversions, especially TSM, but other great/more versatile clutter as well)
  • Clutter-a-holic (another must-hit TS2 clutter spot, I mean it’s literally IN THE NAME. Those adorable plants that everyone uses EVERYWHERE? get them here! plus other great stuff!)
  • Decat (more great conversions, loads of extracted TS2/TS3 clutter, perfect for maxis-match games, great magical/historical-themed cc too!)
  • Delonariel (clutter, conversions, and hood deco OH MY)
  • Hafiseazale (TONS of conversions & clutter, like just go nuts. historical/medieval/fantasy-themed stuff too)
  • Lina-cherie (another favorite, conversions + bright & colorful recolors of some of my favorite sets!)
  • Mutske (T$R, great maxis add-on sets with clutter in between, plus PLANTS!)
  • Nemestnaya (formerly at BPS, random sets can be found on Simscave, account required)
  • Nuttydazesublime (TS4 conversions!)
  • Veranka (one of my all-time faves, conversions galore, can’t live without their stuff. Versatile furniture and clutter alike to please this maxis-matchy heart of mine ❤)
  • TSLD (clutter & TS4 conversions)
  • Zx-Ta (a lot of the images are broken, but I know I have a lot of clutter from here! extracted maxis stuff and conversions)

Like I said, I have a ton of clutter from other random places, so this list is by no means all-inclusive! These are just a few off the top of my head that either have a lot of clutter to download, or whose objects I tend to use over and over again in my game. Don’t forget to check out Garden of Shadows (threads like Secret Santa, CiJ, Advent, Founder’s Day, etc. are treasure troves of cc - there’s tons of clutter dispersed throughout!). And if I remember any obvious clutter resources, I’ll update this list. :D Or make an actual resource page hosted off-site so tumblr doesn’t eat all my links. AGAIN. Happy downloading!*

Because romance – also at this point, they’re both trying to find Marley; by that, I mean they’re trying to find her heart. 

Sigh. ToT @sandy-sims WHERE IS IT.

By the way I did trace back to my favorite scenery shots of yours. :3
If you don’t recall – Willow Creek // San Myshuno

Edit: I forgot here; I have a lot of the packs already – so I’m sorry, Sandy. I’m out the comp too. I just love your sims because they get me emotional.

Klaine one-shot - “As Long as We’re Together” (Rated PG)

Kurt and Blaine meet over summer vacation on the beach as children and start a relationship that grows during the three months a year they spend together. Eventually, they fall in love. But is that love enough to erase their differences and allow them to stay together? (3410 words)

A/N: This is another re-write. Warning for light angst. 

Read on AO3.

“What’s your favorite color?” Blaine asks, jabbing the hard-packed sand with the edge of his shovel.

Kurt bites his lip, searching up and down the beach for help with his answer.

“Okay” - he points to where the ocean stretches into the horizon – “do you see that line of blue out there? Not exactly the water, but not exactly the sky? Kind of hovering in between?”

Blaine scooches closer to Kurt to see what he sees.

“Do you mean with the shimmery bits of silver in it?”

“Yup,” Kurt confirms, nodding his head. “That’s my favorite color. But it’s rare. You can only see it at sunrise and sunset.”

Blaine giggles, returning his attention to his shovel as he continues to dig in the sand, hiding the flush rising to his cheeks.

“It’s the same color as your eyes,” Blaine remarks, careful not to look back at his new friend.

Kurt’s eyes pop open in surprise.

“Really?” He smiles bashfully. “I—I didn’t know that.”
