Still here

It’s been so busy recently I haven’t had much time to update this blog. But I just wanted to let you know I am still here.

Trubble is going through some more of the promised updates, including a whole new range that will be released in bulk in the very near future.

I’d also like to announce that I’m bringing out 2 new ranges under the Trubble brand. “SHU” which will be a range of footwear and (Jewelry Box) which, of course, will be accessories and jewelry. This way you can get a whole new outfit at the Trubble mainstore, without having the hunt the grid for the finishing touches.

Of course, I will post some preview pics here before the launch of the new ranges, but for now all I’m saying is… Trubble is ready for the Summer 2010, are you?

its gone…

Yup, for you members following the saga of the dying laptop, it officially went to silicone heaven.

Thus far I don’t know what happened. I was taking a picture and it went black. The ram isn’t registering, and when it does the graphics are borked. It’s overheating still and … just won’t work.

So, now I dunno what to do. I’ve started the RL savings but they’re not amounting to the minimum of £200-250 (100k+ L’s) I’ll need to get a second hand one.

All in all, right now Trubble is hanging in the balance.  I have around 5-6 weeks tier left. I can’t release as I can’t create. As you know my only other option is hubby’s pc, which he uses most of the time and which has no photoshop and limited graphics.

I am taking the laptop to an expert today to find out what happened and see what can be saved. Hopefully my textures can be rescued if not the laptop saved.

The store will stay for now, and I will keep you updated.

For now though…

Everything in store is 100L or less. plus theres a donation thermometer where you can see the amount I’ve got towards my target…

Plus a lovely 11 outfit special for just 500L!

british thyroid foundation

As some people in world know, I was diagnosed with a serious thyroid disease and graves disease around 8 months ago. I have now been told that the only way to return my system to normal is to have an operation. Which led me to think about the last 8 months and how I didn’t even know much about the thyroid until I was accidently diagnosed at an asthma clinic!

The british thyroid foundation want to change that and are fighting to raise awareness of this disease and other thyroid related illnesses.

You can visit them here for more information.

To thank them and help them with their task, I wanted to raise some money, and where better than the place I spend a lot of time in.
I have a fundraising package for anyone wanting to help with this fundraising, contact Tracy Rubble, or any donations can be paid directly to Kimmie Madfess.

Thankyou x

I’M NOT DEAD… JUST FLOATING

I recieved a rather worrying IM this morning so I decided to clear something up….

[2009/03/12 8:38]  random friend: (Saved Thur Mar 12 01:41:16 2009)ARE YOU DEAD OR SOMETHING? WHERE ARE YOUR RANDOM IMS?

Reading this over a coffee… that promptly got choked on… made me realise how oddly quiet I’ve been… so I thought it was a good idea to let you all know that I am very much still breathing… and working on some new things.

I’ve been trying to get out some new lines for months, but since I am the queen of procrastination it hasn’t happened… until now.

I’ve been working hard in my little studio and getting ready a nice new range of accessories including flowing scarves and other bits and bobs. I’ve been learning to create shoes, and I’ve been working through my textures to get prepared for some hair creation! So it’s all go go go.

Now due to primage, the hair will be going in its own store…which will be under the Trubble brand… so it needs a name!!!!!! That’s where you come in….

I need suggestions for the name… which must include the name Trubble… so Trubbleforhair or along those lines.

Send suggestions on a notecard to Tracy Rubble, and name it…

Trubble hair suggestion {your name}.

The best one will be used for the new store…. and the person who suggests it will win… not one… not two… but the complete first line of Trubble Hair…
Grand Opening, and other details will be confirmed soon so… get suggesting and watch this space!!!!!
