Where to start?  I am going to be leaving the game for a bit - I have some real life opportunities that I just can't pass up!  I do hope to keep my account at silver and be able to peek in from time to time, until a time I can upgrade it and really play again.  So... this is my farewell posting. 

This is a house that 2 amazing friends of mine went together and bought for me (I won't mention any NAMES but Jaylah and LL I loves you both).  I had a vision for this house the first time I set foot in it, when it wasn't even available and I wanted to bring that vision to life.  When I found the house to be LoN only - I opened 55 packs of cards hoping and praying, but that was not to be (although I scored a pretty cool raptor).  Let me just say I had heartfelt tears when my friends GAVE it to me.  /sniff

I will miss my friends in game so much - Rkulaa - Afista - Kahlef - Jaz - Aerfen - Swift - others too numerous to mention (and the above mentioned 2) thank you for helping me through this time in my life and I will value your friendship forever.  I hope to peek in to see you soon!

On to the house!  This house has not been finished, but it will be a long while before I get to work on it again.. so decided to post what was done in it - and the bareness?  well thats just a part of the finishing I get to do when I get back!

House is located on Crushbone server - evil side LoN Blades house - it is not on the leaderboard.

Ya'll take care of each other - I'll miss you tons!

Absolutely gorgeous!  Love the kitchen - it's absolutely spot on and I know these houses are quirky to work with.  Lovely colours and patterns throughout 

Good luck and hurry back, you'll be missed SMILEY

*sob* I'm going to miss you soooo much!  I loved seeing your works in progress as much as I loved seeing the finished work!  Your talent always amazed me, and inspired me to keep working on my own projects rather than getting frustrated and leaving them half finished.  

This Blades house is no exeption...I got to tour it in it's early stages and it was as impressive then as it is now.  I'll have to swing by and check out the changes you made since my last visit!

I wish you all the joy and happiness in the world...but I secretly hope you'll visit Norrath whenever time allows!! hehehe

I'm very very glad that something exciting is happening for you..but at the same time, as has already been stated, so sad to know you won't be around for a while.  You're always so very helpful and kind to us n00bs SMILEY Always ready to roll up a weebie to help walk people thru or give your opinion on a house in progress.  Please hurry back to us!!! <3

The house is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!! I see several things that...provided I can figure out the editor, and with your kind permission, that I'll have to "borrow" SMILEY lol

I am sad to hear you are leaving, even if temporary, but it seems it is for good reasons so I wish you all the luck in those new endeavors! SMILEY

By the screenshots it seems like you added quite a bit to the house since my last visit. I will try to log in tonight to take another peek in the house if you don't mind.

I'm sorry to see you go, but I love your optimistic mood about being able to return and keeping in touch with friends.

Your house is absolutely beautiful. I never would have had the eye to decorate such a hideous place and have it turn out to be so beautiful. As always your work is awesome!

There's a puddle of pink Arasai tears in your Blades house.  SMILEY 

I sure am gonna miss you!  I hope you have a great time in your real life adventures!!! I hope we'll see you in game from time to time.  Free to play has at least one giant plus - you can log in and say hello when you have the time!  I'll be watching for you!  /hugs, Gracee!

Gracee, you have always been a bright spot in a game where often people aren't as friendly as they could or should be.  You are perfect example of how well the decorating community works together.  The time you took to teach me (on Tigerrlilly) to use the LE during one of your many classes meant the world to me.  You wouldn't give up even though it took me 20 minutes just to be able to find the file, lol.  I am truly thankful for the time I got to spend with you over those few classes.

I wish you the best and hope to see you back soon.

Wow that's astonishing, I love it all. The best part is the balcony with the trees behind it--I did a double take at the picture thinking it was really a look outside! SMILEY

I hope we see you back soon here, good luck with your RL opportunities!

Oh Gracee, I can't tell you how much I will miss you and your beautiful designs.  I've become a forum lurker and house visitor myself these days with very little time to play, so I know how it is to have real life things that you simply must do.  I'm glad you have an opportunity you can't pass up.  Good luck to you, you're a terrific person!

I love this place.  As always, you have combined items beautifully to make your own unique construction details and furnishings.  I'll be heading out to visit soon, as I must examine all of these lovely creations in person.  

Bye for now, Gracie.  Much love!

Gracee, just wanted to say thanks.  Your classes were the best, helped me understand the layout editor, and you were very patient and kind to all us beginners!  Your houses are just beautiful, this one being no exception.  I wish you luck in your real world opportunity, and hope to see you around.
