At this rate I may bury myself in a box and dig a hole because of my lack in posting/blogging. What is going on with me? It’s cause of school and life and friends and family and my new relationship… did I use all the excuses in the book? Good. I’m not sure where I’ve been because honestly I’ve had the time. I think it’s just been laziness mixed with changes and that equals a deadly combination. No promises of a tomorrow…

One of my most favorite blogger’s is Strawberry Singh. I tend to glance at her blog site every so often to catch up on new and upcoming products, events, and “really-cool” gadgets that should be in my inventory. I’ve learned a lot from her and even use much of what she uses as resources for photography. One of her latest entries was the Avatar in a Box Challenge that she picked up from Vanessa Blaylock, whom originally started the challenge. Vanessa was inspired by Hugh Kretschmer‘s 2006 art/fashion piece Special Delivery where he lovingly assembled outfits and body parts in a box.
I agree with Berry when she stated that cut up body parts isn’t really her thing… it’s not so much mine either, but what a fun challenge to express. I’m going through quite a bit emotionally in regards to SL family and felt my pose fits that emotion along with the family wall piece at the bottom and then I’ve assembled just a few of my favorite things. You’ll find there is quite a bit of Nylon Pinkney‘s items assorted throughout and that’s because she is one of my very favorite designers and artists in SL.
I had a lot of fun doing this and I hope you all take a moment to put together something a little bit extraordinary with a splash of creativity for this challenge. You can upload your challenge pics here.
