First of all, yes, I’m back. Don’t worry I hadn’t given up this project, not by a long shot, it’s been one of the best things that’s happened in my SL to get out there and explore and meet new people, I was just on vacation. The week or so before vacation was stressful preparing and the week after was spent recovering and trying to settle into a routine, but I’m back!
Just in time to tell you about the The Magic of Papillon Spring Fair & Hunt going in right now, March 17 to 25th at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sanctuary%20Key/78/104/23
From the Notecard.
Papillon Breedables are designed and created by Butterfly Bellflower. They are a breedable like no other. Butterflies, fireflies, dragonflies, wisps, all congregate in a garden community to grow, flourish, and build together! Join us in celebrating the one year anniversary of these amazing little bugs in a Magical Hunt between March 17th & 25th!
The hunt item, a small yellow flower pot, will be hidden all over the sim the Fair will be held on. Look for your pots, buy them at 0 Linden, and enjoy the fair fun! We will be hosting vendors, a maze of Papillon’s releases over the year, not one, but two auctions, as well as butterfly races, trivia, and so much more.
Dare to be pulled in…to the Magic of Papillon!
Come join us in celebrating the first year anniversary of an amazing breedable. We hope to see you there!
If you’ve ever been curious about Papillon products or thinking about getting into breedables this is the perfect opportunity. In addition to the market, the hunt, the fun maze and just touring around this the fair there are several events going in.

Papillon has become such a huge part of my Second Life. Not just that I enjoy the relative ease and low cost of seeing what kinds of butterflies or dragonflies I can breed, but the group makes up a big part of my social life, from auctions to classes and the silly and helpful banter in chat.
If you are looking for a new hobby in Second Life this just might be it.
