Thank you Botanica Patrons for making this a memorable  year and holiday seasons.

This year Liz came joined the staff as PR manager and has been an invaluable help with sales, notices, hunts, product testing and generally catching all my oops. We launched Creatix Enterprises to make one big group for all my product lines.

The season began early with the Winter Festival for Team Fox for Parkinson’s Research at Creations Park

Barbie Alchemi, the Team Fox Lead, requested we design large 20M Christmas Carousel for the venue which was donated as a sponsor item and ended up gracing a few more Christmas venues and parks in Second Life.

Botanica doubled down on sponsorship at the Relay for Life Christmas Expo with an indoor and outdoor Gold Sponsor Sponsorship.

Liz and I had a blast setting up an exposition of or holiday wares, took out all the stops making interactive space for all, and were rewarded by high attendance and good sales, of which 50%  we direct donations to the ACS. Our sponsor donation item was a downsized 10m Christmas Carousel which could fit in a great many more personal winter wonderlands.

During the two weeks of the Expo we recouped the full sponsorship donation in sales at Botanica and the Expo sim. Thank you dear patrons for donating $200USD to the American Cancer Society through Botanica. I hope all your holiday decorations glowed especially bright for you knowing that they are helping to find a cure for cancer and Parkinson’s disease.

What a wonderful season! Soon the snows will melt and we will be decorating for the Lunar New Year of the Monkey (Feb. 8), Mardi Gras (Feb. 9) and Valentine’s Day. Liz is working on a new educational Mardi Gras hunt. Botanica was such a gorgeous winter wonderland this year, I captured some of the ephemeral beauty of the season in  in photos before it disappears.
