Around the Sims 3 | Stuff for Summer Festivals
When I set up my game for the annual rock festival, I realized I was missing many things I needed:
1- I wanted a cheap looking barista bar, that you could decorate your way. I kept the sophisticated coffee machine, though, because it’s not because you can’t afford a super bar that you have to drink bad coffee, right? ;)
2- My students and I needed a cheap Late Night bar. I meshed that one from kegs and crates. It will also be perfect for student parties!
3- I also wanted to have a small and neutral stylist station (I wanted my Sims to be able to have cool make-up or dreads, for the festival). I ended up by not using it much in my game, but a small stylist station was still needed, according to me! :)
4- I needed sound equipments.
5- No summer festivals without a camping. I needed more contemporary tents! I cloned these ones from Wolrd Adventures, but they probably work too if you have only Island Paradise.
I hope you’ll enjoy!

Around the Sims 3 | Baby Carriers
More re-use of EA Store playmat with these baby carriers. I had already used the playmat as base for my baby “day beds”, but when I caught one of my Sims mother putting her baby on the floor while she was shopping at the market, I made her putting her baby on ones of my previous day beds, as she got one in her inventory, but thought it was silly as there was no handle. Ha. Sure, it’s not bothering for Sims who can have a car, and twenty books in their pockets, but still, it was annoying me.
So, I remeshed more "baby comfort" items, but with handles, still draggable into Sims inventory, so your Sims can put babies on at any time, anywhere.
Playmats keep babies happy. Too happy. They gain energy, hunger, bladder, fun… If you find them too cheaty, the Great Ani made a tiny mod to prevent this.
The site might be down next week. For a couple of minutes if I’m lucky, for a couple of days if I’m not. I have to change of server again because I can’t pay for this one anymore.
In any case, the site will be back, dont worry! And if I’m smart enough to make this move smoothly, you shouldn’t even notice! :)
Around the Sims 3 | Garage sale and more
If your Sims have old stuff they want to get rid off, why not selling them to the neighbors by organizing a garage sale? All the objects you’ll place on the trestles, blanket or in the cardboard can be sold and bought, thanks to the EA Store Savvy Seller set (or Ani’s mod Savvier Seller).
Also, what would be a garage sale without a garage? ;)
This set also includes garage doors, dedicated to Dee chérie. Sadly, these can’t be opened (but honestly, I didn’t even know garage doors could be opened before working on these! :D)
You might have noticed that I’ve been using trestles for my garage sale. I had already trestle tables in the Music Festival
set, but two things had been annoying me: the direction of the wood wasn’t correct, and there was a tiny seam on the 2 and 3-tiles tables, because I was a bit clueless when I made these, 3 years ago. So, I redid them, and you can redownload them here
Around the Sims 3 | DIY Plants
When I meshed some pen pots on my previous updates (here and there), with spring knocking at my door, I felt like recycling those pots to put plants in, instead of pens & pencils. So I’ve used EA plants to create smaller plants for these pots.
I might create more pots, or more plants, or different size plants in the future. Feel free to create your own pots or plants if you’re an object creator! :)

I’m the wort Simblr owner ever, I know! After one week without Internet, I disappeared again for another week, and now that I’m back home, I still haven’t tried to catch up with your amazing posts. Baaaaaaaaad me. :p
Around the Sims 3 | Desks & Accessories #1
For years, I’ve been needing stuff to decorate my Sims desks, but I kept postponing because of more urgent projects, but here we go! Desk accessories!
First with pens & pen pots, that I split into two different objects to have more colors options. Pots have 2 or 3 channels, plus some stencils (as shown above).
Also, a came-back of the IKEA theme with the Expedit desk, plus an IKEA box, just because.
Some of the objects shown on the preview will be available on next update.
NOTE: I’ll be offline all next week long, so don’t get upset if you send me a message and that I don’t reply. I won’t be able to before the 16-17th of March.
