Jump Rope For Heart – Help make a difference! Tuesday, Feb 12 2008 


First I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to read this…

I don’t usually post stuff like this, and in all honesty, it isn’t easy for me…

Not very many people know the person behind Sensual Casanova as I do not tend to get very personal with too many people within Second Life. I try very hard to keep the two lives and people separate when it comes to feelings and emotion.

Well… as some of you may know, I lost my father back in December of 1994. I was only 16 yrs old… My father suffered with a bad heart, multiple open heart surgeries, a stroke and other health conditions a good portion of his life.

He was never able to meet 7 out of 11 of his grandchildren but all of them know and won’t ever forget their grandfather.

My niece and nephew, Angelina and Brandon Jurado are raising money for Jump Rope for Heart in memory of their grandfather, my father, Dave Briones Jr.

These kids are so passionate about this, and try really hard this year and last year to raise money for Jump Rope for Heart. I am asking for anyone that reads this to please help them make a difference. Any amount will be very helpful and appreciated.

Donations online can only be done in $25.00 increments, and you have the option to make a dedication or a shout out on the right scrolling image of the page which can include either your RL or SL name.

If you want to donate, and don’t have a credit card, or want to donate a different amount you can send the donation to my personal PayPal account to debrub77@msn.com and I will send it in a lump sum or pay by my credit card online depending on the amount.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me in SL or you can email me at Sensual@SensualDesigns.net.

Thanks and God Bless,
Sensual Casanova

Cleaning up! Thursday, Nov 15 2007 

I decided today I was going to attempt to organize my inventory a bit better, and the first folder I went to was “calling cards”, I have 11 different folders of calling cards… at one point I use to try and keep them organized, you know, business, friends, associates, stranger, etc. hehe

Well it is getting a bit out of hand, I have 872 calling cards, YES 872! That’s just insane, especially when I only talk to a handful regularly and at least half of them, I never ever spoke to and have no clue how I got their cards lol

So anyways, you guessed, I am going to be deleting a lot of cards today. If for some reason yor card was deleted please do not get offended and if you are someone that got deleted and want to get to know me, I am all for it, but to have 100’s of cards just floating in my inventory telling people when I am there and when I am not isn’t necessary. Also, there are so many, if I make an oopsies hehe so please forgive me 🙂

Public Announcement: PLEASE READ Wednesday, Nov 14 2007 

Public Announcement:

The time has come…

After nearly 4 years of SL together Asri and I have decided to part ways… our plans, our ventures, our futures, our anticipations have all started to curve in opposite directions. Some of you may have noticed that I have moved the Chaotica sim where Asri has “the House in the Hat Box” and it can now be found North of Le Cadre’.

Asri Falcone Originals will remain in Le Cadre’ until the end of year, there is no current information as to where it will be located after December 31st. We plan to continue working together in the future, with shoes, furniture and possibly some other projects, although our “business partnership” has now dissolved.

Please spare the drama on any future blog postings or “gossip” lol there is none, Asri and I are still best of friends and will continue to be as always, we just decided to go different directions.

My main reason for even announcing this is because…

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD I AM NOT HER SECRETARY!! LOL

Please STOP IMing me in regards to Asri’s products and customer service, the amount of IM’s I get for her are outrageous and only a waste of time since I can’t not help you and the only person that can is her! I have enough to keep me busy lol. Anything in regards to Asri Falcone, PLEASE contact Asri Falcone.

Thanks for understanding =)

Boy do I need to get out more!! Monday, Nov 12 2007 

Well there I was… answering customer service calls, planning for the up coming fashion show, and juggling around 10 other things going on around me as usual… and one of my IM’s was from Guy Goodman… he is a member of Second Life Wholesale and he was IMing me to put me to work… lol, yes thats all I need is more work! Just teasing Guy!

Anywho… when I was able to reply to him he informed he was singing and to take a break… I thought, wow a break? Guy sings? OK! So there I was at Shop & Jazz listening to Guy sing live!!

I was just amazed and I turned my speakers up… shortly after my husband and son come into my office, making themselves comfortable hehe and we are all just staring at my computer screen watching and listening to Guy Goodman doing what he does best, entertaining, singing and putting smiles on every face around him!

I haven’t had this much fun in quite sometime… all you designers that are like me, and I know there are alot of you, keep to yourselves…stay busy in your own lil world, I encourage you to get out more… I know I should do it alot more than I do, but every time I do, I am just amazed by all the wonderful and talented people in SL!

lol and to top it off, as I am typing this Guy is singing a song called ” I don’t get around much anymore”, he must be reading my mind lol! If you are ever just wanting to kick back and relax, or even work in a relaxing environment, find out where Guy Goodman is doing a live show, I can assured you he will make it the perfect setting 🙂 Thanks Guy for making my Sunday, a pleasant one!

A Note To Ginny… Monday, Nov 12 2007 

My condolences to the family and friends of Ginny Talamasca

Ginny,

I was one of the unfortunate ones that didn’t get a chance to know you too well, you were always an inspiration to me and always made me want to try harder and become a better designer… I looked up to you from such a far.

The last time we spoke, you told me some very personal things about you and what was going on in your life, and in fear of asking too many questions or prying into your life… I listened, I cared, I worried, I cried, I prayed and I walked away. Instead of trying to become closer to you and be there for you, I walked away. I can’t believe I walked away. I left you to deal with it with your current friends and family in hopes of not being a burden or making you feel uncomfortable. Please forgive me… 😦
I am sure the other people reading this don’t understand, and for all I know I may not even make sense…

All I know is I wish I could have been there for you Ginny! I really do!

You will forever be in my thoughts and heart… your family and friends will forever be in my prayers.

With All My Heart,

Sensual Casanova

Thank you for making my day! Saturday, Oct 21 2006 

Today I was contacted by Raven Pennyfeather because she had lost her dance bracelet due to that nasty bug we had over the past week… She was very sweet, kind and patient… Don’t you just love when a customer comes to you with a problem, but yet makes the problem seem so pleasant? I know, weird huh? Anyways, it was a great experience and she asked me what color I prefer blue or red? I wasn’t sure why she had, I just replied, red hehe… Well moments later she passed me one of her outfits called Jagged Edge! I hurried up and put it on as I was anxious to see, and all I could reply to her was “Wow, just wow!” It was beautiful!! I went to go show it off to Asri and next thing I know Raven passed Asri the blue one! It made Asri’s day as well, as she has been stressing and working really hard trying to get a big project finished. I can’t wait to get a free moment and go see what else she makes!

A little about me, and Give it a rest! Friday, Sep 15 2006 

First of all I want to thank everyone that has supported me, past, present and future… All the support that I get in and out of SL, really has a dramatic impact on my everyday life.

As many of you already know, I am disabled Irl, I have what is called Factor V Mutation and have sufferd several blood clots in a main artery in my right leg, causing me not to be able to stand, sit, walk, or lay down for long periods of time (4-5 more hrs at a time), also chronic swelling and pain in my right leg.

As one can imagine, being 29 and disabled is not fun, in fact, it is very depressing… I have a wonderful husband of nearly 12 years, a wonderful 10 yr old son, and a 14 month old stubborn, very active german shepherd lol…

I have a degree in accounting, I am bilingual (English/Spanish), I am a translator and help immigrants with INS paperwork and court papers on the side… I do this all from home and my clients come from word of mouth. I am only allowed to work 20hrs a week…

Anyways, there are lots of things I can’t do, being a 29yr old wife and mother, I can’t travel, I can’t hike the Rocky Mountains, I can’t chase my son around, play soccer with him ( his favorite sport), I can’t go to Veracruz, Mexico with my husband and son when they go to visit his family for 2 weeks every year… very depressing…

Things I can do, I can help my son with his homework, I can watch him play at the park and do sports, I can watch movies with my family, I can make a pretty good income doing side jobs and designing in SL, I can still be thankful that God has allowed me to have such a loving family and friends, and that I am still here to watch my son grow up…

So there is a little background on me… now for the DRAHMA! I made this blog so I could express myself a little more and allow my customers and friends to learn about me as well as keep updated on new products and changes…

I did NOT make this blog for some low life to leave comments such as, “Yuck, low quality clothing you have, i wont shop here” and “I would never wear this rag”… I know that my designs are not low quality, I take several hours making an outfit, sometimes even days, this person is obviously just trying to hurt me, fair enough… but why not leave your SL name instead of hiding behind another? Seems pretty silly to me… Well I have deleted these posts by this person, not because they were just cruel, but because if you are going to talk shit to me at least do it under your main SL account name. Don’t be a coward! So thanks to this loser, people will have to be registered to leave a comment on my blog. If anyone wants to leave a negative comment, please feel free, I will not sensor it, unless you are going to sensor your identity.

I know the person that left these cruel messages on my blog, and all I can say is give it a rest! I guess because your fake death threats didn’t work, you are going to try something else? Seriously, seek help!

Now before I start rambling off topic and not making sense lol I am going to close this for now, maybe I will post more about me later… 🙂

I hope everyone has a wonderful day and aren’t getting to stressed and upset with all the SL Downtime 😦
