Thanks To All!

I wanted to take a moment to say, Thank you to all who have viewed, commented and downloaded.  The last couple weeks have been hard here and you've helped to make it better.  We're in the process of packing & moving, which is always stressful.  If that wasn't enough, my father passed away.  So, yeah, creativity has slowed to a crawl...many Sims projects have been pushed aside for now.  But once life settles down and gets back to "normal," I'm sure I'll be back with tons of new stuff.  Thank you for your patience and support. 

*sigh*

The waters receded, repairs began.  The waters rose and receded.  Clean-up and repairs began again.  The waters rose once more...  While my home does not sit on a flood plain, the last year has disproved our county's assessment of flooding potential - or reaffirmed global warming (depending on one's viewpoint).  I had spinal injuries prior to the flooding, aggravated by the clean-up, and managed to injure myself yet again.  Thanks to medication induced memory problems, I am now having to re-learn much.  Thank you for your patience during my unfortunate hiatus and I hope you enjoy my personal files (until I finish my new items)!

Thank You FEMA!

Texas was declared a Disaster Area after all of our flooding, so thankfully we were able to call on FEMA for assistance.  It seems strange to be thankful for being officially declared a Disaster Area...but, I am truly thankful for the designation and SO grateful for FEMA!  We have been approved for help and assistance - which we are sorely in need of!  Hopefully this help will enable us to reclaim our home and repair some of our possessions.  (Sadly, many irreplaceable items are gone forever...)   I do not know how long this repair/reclamation process will take, or if we'll be allowed to remain in-house while it occurs.  Life is weird & strange right now, but I hope & pray it's looking better soon...  I just wanted y'all to know where we're at in our recovery process and I wanted to, once again, say "Thank You" for your support, encouragement, comments, and downloads!  

Flooding & Mold

We've had a lot of wet weather here in Texas lately. My house did flood. We managed to mostly recover from that initial water and damage, but we've got mold. I am currently in the process of ridding my house of that mold, a process which will take time. I have spent the last week dealing with this, but I still have a LOT of work ahead of me. I do have a few files here awaiting approval. Hopefully by the time my Pending list is empty, I'll be finished around the house and able to create more items for the Sims. Until then, thank you all for your support, kind comments, and downloads! It means more to me than I can express...

Theft Sites

Just to be clear:  These are the sites where I have discovered my "stolen files," my Kyanite Blue evening gown and my Henna Hands.

Sims 4 Planet  at sims4planet.net/%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%BE%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B8/Kyanite-Blue-by-DragonQueen  uploaded by  lorelea

Sims3Pack.ru  at  sims3pack.ru/sims-4/tatuirovki/11467-henna-hands-ot-dragonqueen.html   uploaded by Ossallea 

Everything.kz has posted my Henna Hands with a link going to Sims3Pack.ru  at  everything.kz/post/42424725/36212  Not sure HOW it got there!

Simov4.net did remove my Kyanite Blue evening gown after I contacted them via email requesting they do so. 

I have written to the others on a daily basis and am still waiting for them to respond and/or pull the files.  I fear Google Translate may be failing me.  (The sites are all Russian, not a language I speak.  lol)  As I am pretty new to creating, I value each and every one of my followers and downloads.  I am really quite annoyed about this issue.  I know I should take it as the "backhanded compliment" that it is... If it were just my Kyanite, I probably would.  But the misappropriation of my Henna Hands really annoys me.

How Do You Handle Theft?

In my last blog post, I mentioned how flattered and grateful I was to the individuals and websites who have featured my creations and provided links back to The Sims Resource.  I regret to say not all webistes are that honest.  I have since found a few of my creations available for download at other sites, something I specifically do NOT allow.  I have sent messages to the Administrators of the websites and am currently awaiting a result.  I wonder, how have you other creators handled situatons such as this?

I'm Flattered & Thankful

Just out of curiousity, I googled myself: DragonQueen Sims.  I fully expected TSR to appear, and it did.  Surprisingly, so did many other sites.  As I clicked on each one of them (yes, each one! lol), I was deeply flattered and grateful to see my creations appearing on such sites as Sims4Downloads, Sims4Updates, MySims4Blog, Tumblr, Pinterest, ScoopIt, and even a couple Russian websites.  Wow!  (If I left any out, I'm truly sorry! Forgive me...)  Thank you so much to each and every person who uploaded a link to my creations!  Thank you to each and every person who's downloaded!  -=Air Hugs To All=-

The Bad, The Good & The Bad

Our family has been heartbroken by the passing of two of our beloved cats in less than four months.  We'll always miss you, Cheech and Zeus!

I updated my laptop to Sims Get To Work. Now my newest creations aren't appearing on my husband's computer (the one I use to photograph my uploads). Surprisingly, even the base game items that I recolor aren't showing up on his computer. So, yes, he gets an update too. To those of you who download my items from now on: You may need to update to Get To Work to get my newer creations to appear in your game.

Thank You Everyone!

I just couldn't resist creating a set of henna hands for my game. When I realized there weren't any available here at TSR, I knew I had to upload them. I hope you like them too! Thank you TSR for Featuring them on the front page! :) And thanks, in advance, to all who download them!

Wow! Again, Thank You!!

I was absolutely amazed to find my Jaipur set on the Front Page! It took me completely by surprise. I love the set and I hope y'all like it too! THANK YOU SO MUCH TSR and Sims4Studio!
