NOV/DEC Challenge - Winter Theme
#1 04-11-2014 
This one is a little different to what we've normally done - it's still a decorating challenge (because those seem to be your favourites. Big Grin )

And we've got two months to do this one in - because I know how busy December can get.

Winter is my favourite season. It's cold, there's snow, it's dark and I don't need any excuses to stay indoors. Smile So the theme is winter.

We have so many wonderful builders and decorators - and what I'd like to do is between us all, make the beginnings of a winter-only vacation hood. Smile based on Three Lakes.
You can either pick a lot and make it over - or replace it entirely with something the same size. Note not all the lots are flat edged.

5 community lots
Wallowa Park (30x40)
Three lakes Market (40x50)
Lumber Mill Range (60x40)
Three Lakes Plaza (50x20)
Smooth Rock Spa (40x30)

Three Lakes cabins (50x40) $$
Sky Vista Hotel (50x50) $$$$$ -- Kiri
Hunters Bedrock Inn (40x30) $$ -- Shasta
Blau Hills Resort (60x40) $$$ -- Jones, Karen
Axe Woods Campgrounds (60x50) Free

2 residences for sale
Copper Ranch Retreat (30x30)
Villa di Simoleon (40x40)

The theme is Alpine/European. think Pine trees, Skiing, skating and other winter sports.

A page to inspire you (and it's Prague, so it's beautiful) : Prague Christmas including Christmas Markets

For people who don't want to build or decorate - there's other tasks!
a. Create CC that can be used.
b. Find CC that can be used.
c. Share your favourite Winter memory.

In particular - skiing, snow tubing, and any other winter-themed mods or CC. Also anything that's European Winter traditions - like the Christmas markets, the Gavle goat from Sweden, St Lucia, etc, etc. with so many nations represented on Leefish, I think it would be really cool to share our winter with each other.

Deco skis here:
Snow terrain paints:
Ice walls and floors:

Are TSR links allowed? Because they've got some icicles...

I'm happy for that Esme. Just not Paysites. Lee may have other thoughts? But work on the basis that it's ok until we know otherwise.

This is such a great idea Big Grin Now excuse me, I need to go decorate/make a list and check it twice Wink

Ooh, I like this theme! Big Grin I just might have to jump in.

Also, gold star for knowing about the Gävle goat! Hmm, maybe I should make one... in two variations, one that's untouched and one that's on fire. Tongue

I love following the Gavle Goat! Big Grin That would be so wonderful if you did!

I just might have to jump in on this one as well! I love winter!! (of course, living in a desert climate does make me a bit more, um, shall we say, longing for snow! ha ha)

What if someone picks the same lot? Does it matter?

Oh! Over on MTS they're allowing TSR Sims 2 stuff because TSR has made all of their Sims 2 creations free, so I wouldn't think it would be a problem. Wink

Puppetfish - just let people know what lot you are doing - and I'll put your name next to it so if people don't want to double up, they don't have to. Of course, it doesn't actually matter. Smile


Sorry, that is a members only option
