Broken Links
I've gotten a few messages from people saying that their link to the day one treat broke after half an hour. If that happened to you (or if it happens with any other treat), let me know and I'll resend it.

Kirsten, Peter, Lisbeth and Anna picked raspberries for their mothers to preserve. Lisbeth explained how they would take the jam into town to trade during the Fourth of July celebration. When Kirsten heard that it was common to trade goods during the holiday, she couldn't help but think of the honey in her bee tree. July 4th was only five days away.
While the others continued to talk about all the activities they expected to see in town, Kirsten snuck off into the woods. She was startled to find a bear cub. The two looked at each other, but the cub was focused on eating berries. Suddenly, it took off. Lisbeth had approached, searching for Kirsten.
Tumblr media
The girls argued for a bit. Kirsten thought that the cub was cute and harmless. Lisbeth warned that the mother would be nearby, and wouldn't hesitate to attack. Finally, Lisbeth managed to drag Kirsten back to the raspberry patches.

Reblogging myself, but I got to thinking how I'd like to have these bags not only IRL but also in Sims. They'd probably have to be clutter objects, but they're just so cute.
Tumblr media
This is the most interesting collab I've seen AG do in a while. The last thing I need is more travel bags but when I saw it being hinted on the AGIG last night, I was intrigued.
In addition to these pouches, there will be different types of bags and, I'm guessing, patches and other travel accessories. But their products are pricy, so I can't see myself getting more than one.
I like Kirsten and Samantha's prints best.
These will be available on Stony Clover's website starting October 22nd.

One more week! I'm looking forward to it and hope you are as well.

FOR THE TRICK-O-TREATERS
Tumblr media
• Be OFF anon when sending a trick or treat
• READ THE PORCHLIGHT POST of EACH creators and follow their rules
• Always make sure to check DIRECTLY on the creator’s page that their porchlight is still on before sending a trick or treat
• Send IMs rather than asks when the creators are okay with it, so you can avoid hitting the dreaded ask limit!
• To know who has their porchlight on, either check the tag #porchlight on and/or consider turning your notifications on for the creators you want the gifts of so you don’t miss them!
• Say please, say thank you, and most importantly, be PATIENT. The creators may be dealing with hundred of asks/IMs, it might take them a while to answer!
• If you’re worried your ask got eaten, wait before sending another one in, give a chance to the creators, maybe they haven’t had time to answer yet. Sometimes they’ll even make an announcement to say they’ve answered all the asks, and you can then send a new one.
• Add a spoopy pun if you feel like it!
• Private thank yous are always appreciated, but don’t feel bad if the creator doesn’t answer you. They might be swamped in asks, but they’ve seen it, and they appreciate the gesture, believe us!
• If you don’t like the treats, just don’t download it, no need to tell the creator! Not all treats are for everyone and that’s perfectly fine!
Tumblr media
FOR THE CREATORS
Tumblr media
Consider making a Schedule post that includes what days you’ll be active, what your timezone is, and any other relevant information to help out your followers.
What to include in your porchlight on posts:
How should the trick-o-treaters contact you (IMs or asks)
What should they do if your links may include tricks
How long will your porchlight be on & your timezone
If you give multiple gifts in the same day/weekend, put numbers on them and say which gift they’ll be getting for this particular porchlight on post.
Whether the link to your treats (or tricks) may include jumpscares.
Are the treats exclusive to Simblreen or will they be released later on?
How to tag your porchlight on post:
The game (#ts4 #ts3 #ts2)
#porchlight on
#simblreen and #simblreen 2021
trigger warnings of your gifts #(the trigger) tw
What to include in your porchlight off posts:
When your porchlight might be back on (and your timezone) and whether it will be a new treat, or the same one.
How to tag your porchlight off post:
The game (#ts4 #ts3 #ts2)
#porchlight off
#simblreen and #simblreen 2021
Please consider pinning your porchlight posts for the duration of simblreen (on or off) so they are at the top of your blog and easy to find.
Include preview pictures of your treats on your private post/page, so people know what they are downloading. If it’s cc, consider also mentionning the polycount, or at least whether it’s high poly (over 10k) or not.
Do not put your gifts behind paywalls and early access. That goes against the whole free-giving spirit of Simblreen.
If you don’t think you’ll have time to answer trick-o-treaters, consider doing a scavenger hunt, a riddle, a hidden page, or anything else that crosses your mind!
HAVE. FUN. If you’re not enjoying the event, if it’s too stressful, it’s also perfectly okay to just release your gifts publicly. You don’t have to participate every day, and YOU choose when your porchlight is on or not. Don’t put pressure on yourself unnecessarily!

Kirsten and Peter went fishing for trout. It didn't take long to fill their basket with enough for supper. Just as they were finishing up, their dog Caro started yelping. He had been stung by a bee.
Kirsten heard humming and smelled blossoms. This must mean there was a bee tree nearby! She had Peter stay at the creek with Caro and went into the woods to investigate. Sure enough, she found a large swarm surrounding a basswood tree. There were scratches in the bark and bear pawprints on the ground, but she was too excited to be concerned. Not only would there be plenty of honey for baking, but they could use it to trade for items they needed in town.
Tumblr media
Peter didn't sound nearly as enthusiastic when Kirsten announced that she planned to collect the honey herself. She said that she was being brave, but Peter thought she was being foolish. Kirsten wouldn't be deterred and told Peter that if he didn't want to help her, he should at least keep her secret.

Completely remade the fedora. It no longer requires the hat slider and is tagged for male and female.

Agent Carter CC Set - Part 2/3 - Agent Carter Season One
This season features a lot of outfits in red, white, and/or blue as a tribute to Steve Rogers (Captain America).
The blue dress (so named because I couldn't think of anything more creative) was given a thicker border around the neck so that I didn't have to mess with the base texture as much. Done in the Equinox palette by @saurussims
The plaid blazer was originally shown in the one shot from the Iron Man 3 bonus features, but I like how it's worn in season one better. The best clone I could find didn't have the most accurate lapels, so I took some liberties with the shape. Equinox palette.
The skirt suit and fedora are arguably the most iconic outfit from the show. The suit will have some clipping on the collar. The hat works without the slider and is tagged for male and female. Both are done in @waxesnostalgic's Vintage Neutrals palette.
I thought the club dress was going to be the hardest piece of the set, but it ended up giving me relatively little trouble. Done in @felixandresims Georgian palette (couldn't find the link).
The long sleeve blouse is a full body outfit. The skirt is in Vintage Neutrals. When Sims are outdoors and in CAS there is shine around the top button, but I didn't notice it so much indoors.
The value dress is so named from the quote in episode 8. I actually have a very similar dress IRL that I got from Modcloth. Equinox palette.
The belted dress is supposed to have faint pinstripes but I left them off so it wouldn't warp. As it is there will be a little blurriness on the belt. Equinox palette.
The sailor dress is done in @sourgalaxy's From the Flowers palette. I had to pick my battles so the stripes do not extend onto the sleeves. If anyone is interested, I might consider making a sleeveless version of this dress.

Molly McIntire, 1954
Molly was sad to see her friend Emily Bennett return to England after the war, but they promised to see each other each time Emily visited her American aunt. Molly even visited her friend in London a few years later. Inspired by her father’s time as an army doctor, 19-year-old Molly is studying to become a nurse at Northwestern University in Chicago. She keeps in touch with her long-time friends Linda Rinaldi and Susan Shapiro and sees movies with them often.
Molly: hair / eyes / blush / lipstick / glasses / earrings (ember) / top / skirt
My grandmother was around the same age as Molly so I used her for inspiration.

Since I have a number of new followers and people are going to be stopping by for Simblreen, I figured there are probably quite a few out there who aren’t familiar with the American Girl characters.
To make my blog a little easier to navigate, I’ve updated my tabs. Now each character will have her year next to her name. If you’re looking for Regency, you’ll know to check Caroline or Josefina. Same with WWII and Nanea or Molly, etc. I’ve also combined all of my own CC into one tab instead of two, so Dear America and Agent Carter will be mixed in with American Girl.

Meet Nellie and Nellie's Pajamas (BGC) -
500 Followers Gift Part 1
Nelllie O'Malley grew up poor in New York City, working in a factory from a young age. Her parents decide to send her upstate as a domestic servant to improve her health. In her new position she meets Samantha Parkington, who refuses to let class boundaries get in the way of friendship. When Nellie and her sisters find themselves orphaned and threatened to be split up, Samantha's family takes them in. Nellie appreciates the opportunities she now has, but she would choose the practical over the frivolous any day.
The dress comes in @serindipitysims Scientist palette. Light swatches are going to be more shiny than medium and dark ones. The ruffle is only on the front of the dress to minimize clipping. There will still be a little at the shoulders.
The hat is in the same swatches as the sash on the dress. Originally I wanted to add transparency but that didn't look the way I envisioned. At least this way it will work for more people. Slider compatible.
The pajamas and slippers also come in Scientist, with the extra canon swatch. It involved a lot of mesh-mirroring so hopefully I took care of at least most of the little gaps.
At first I considered including the Celtic cross necklace, but the ruffle makes the dress not necklace compatible.

The barn had been raised, supper shared and now it was time for the party. The adults danced to fiddlers playing Yankee, German and Swedish tunes. The girls did some dancing of their own. Papa tapped Kirsten on the shoulder and asked for a waltz. They spun around and around, leaving Kirsten dizzy.
Tumblr media
That night after all their guests had left, Kirsten sat with Mama. She pulled put her quilt square and Mama asked what she planned to do with it, since the friendship quilt had been finished. Kirsten thought for a moment, then decided that she would start a brand new quilt for the baby. It would take a while to make, but there was no need to rush.
(If you’re wondering why I didn’t include the subplot about the barn cats, that’s because I have so many Sims in the household that the UI is already very small, and I didn’t want to chance messing anything up).

Kirsten Larson, 1864
Kirsten is a Swedish immigrant who made the journey to America as a 9-year-old girl. Now, she is 19 and a schoolteacher in a small town in Minnesota, which gained statehood in 1858 when she was 13. Kirsten excels at helping other Scandinavian immigrant children learn English.
( I kept Kirsten’s signature color scheme— her look hasn’t evolved much from when she was a child. Kirsten was my first and favorite AG doll. )
Kirsten: hair / bonnet / eyes / blush / lipstick / dress
