Next Week's Crayon!!


  Cultured Pearl

245, 245, 245


The salmon crayon comes in the Standard 48 and up packs and is one of the older crayons having been added in 1949 !

When this color came up, I HAD to use it to show off my beloved Steelhead, as our mascot is the Steelhead Salmon! I asked Lunar for a short list of places on each sim that he feels shows off Steelhead to its best. He provided me with a list of builds that are based on Real world Buildings or places. I will happily pass out that note card to anyone that wants it! I am going to show off one photo from each location and if you want to see all the photos I took of the builds go to this handy link here

Steelhead is wanting new blood! So if you want to come live in a fantastic set of sims with one of the most amazing groups of people you will ever met, Come give us a visit! You will be welcomed with Open arms! we take all types no matter your fancy. We are an active group and work both to have fun in world but also have a presence at Relay for Life of Secondlife. Steelhead holds a weekly town meeting on Tuesdays and a weekly themed dance on Fridays. As well as many other events throughout the week.

Now onto the builds!
