Summer Internship, Pt. 3 - August 2008


Life at the Cunningham home has been somewhat of a routine this summer.  To say "routine" and "Cunningham" in the same sentence, is unusual in itself.  There's usually always something that occurs to knock their plans right out the window!  If one was to sit still for a moment, they could sense an element of underlying sadness and tension in the air, but to look at the family on the surface, you couldn't tell it. 
Tomika's been so engrossed in her time with S'Ahmisa, the 'daughter' she never had, and with sewing.  Her renovated sewing room was hardly ever entered when the boys were home.  Now it's sort of become her sanctuary, well that is...when she's not spending girl time with S'Ahmisa; they clip coupons and make out shopping lists for the Butler, Vasyl, to pick up ingredients for new recipes the Culinary Group is trying out, or they go and buy the latest doo-dads for braiding and fastening S'Ahmisa's hair with, or they just sit in front of the huge TV upstairs vegging out while watching the SimLifetime movie channel.

Tomika, surprisingly, hasn't had time to really feel sad over her absent boys because she's been so pleasantly occupied, outside of workIf she could only spend some alone time with her husband, that would be the icing on the cake.

Default Replacement Plates & Matching Dishracks

Well, in case you've been wondering what I've been doing for the past few weeks...this is it.  :P  I've been teaching myself how to make Default Replacement Plates with Morague's Mini-Replacement Tutorial.  I love to swap out dishes for my households.  And let's face it, we all enjoy those heartwarming family dinner pics.

For me, it's important that every sim gets their own style and color choice.  And since I can't afford Lenox, my simmies will!

I promise, I'll get back to simming soon.  Recoloring is highly therapeutic for me and a break away from the game.  *smiles*  I hope you guys enjoy these!  Get them at MTS2.  (link is below the pic)  I'll be doing more plates/dishracks in the future.
