MELLY CLARINGTON
ACCOUNTS MANAGER, PHOTOGRAPHER

Melly joined Second Life in late 2008 and ever since her pixel feet hit the ground, she has been an avid shopper. A firm believer in sharing and supporting all the talented creators in this virtual world via blogging and her work through LTD. It is amazing to take a blank, empty space and make it actually feel like home - you always need a place to go home and be comfortable.  Ironically, Melly's platform is a constant chameleon, for blogging purposes, her "home" is never the same, but it's always home-especially when her sister stops by to help!  Being a part of the Love to Decorate team is an absolute honor, as it adds another dimension to how she can be the best support for the home and garden designers.

PETALS JINX
WEBSITE CONTRIBUTOR

A Member of Second Life® since 2008, when my college professor introduced the virtual world to our small communications class. This sparked my interest, and ever since I have enjoyed exploring all that Second Life® has to offer. From beautiful sims to blogging amazing creations from talented designers. Having seen so many wonderful sites, I decided the best way to show my thanks to them was to start a blog, which has been successfully up and running for 2 years now. In continuation of my passion for beauty in Second Life®, I am now honored to be part of the Love To Decorate staff.
