SL18B ends in three days so don't miss your final opportunities to collect both the special commemorative passport stamp for the event and the ten personal stamps from our SSiD-carrying staff on the BBB stand.
We make announcements in the BBBug chat when members of staff come onto the stand so be sure to monitor it when you're in-world. We enjoy meeting you all and look forward to you stopping by. Even if you don't have a Bellisseria Passport (shame on you, pick up a form while you're here) come visit us anyway. Our Chief Designer Sun and her team have made one of the event's most beautiful builds.
We are going to miss our secret garden when SL18B ends.
We are sorry to report the sad news that Bel (jezebel.bailey) is leaving the BBB. She's been with us almost since the beginning. She has been a great colleague and a cheerful, teasing, uplifting leader to us more recent recruits.
She's planning to revive her old SL clothing brand and is busy acquiring the mesh skills necessary to do so. Knowing her determination and application as we do, we are sure she will succeed and look forward to wearing her creations! On that subject, our colleague Ghost said;
I would wish Bel luck but I know she won't need it if she approaches her new venture with the same passion, skill and eye for detail that she dedicated to the BBB for so long. I know she will do so well, and keep making SL an even more beautiful place every day.
Our CEO Boo said
Bel has been with us pretty much since the BBB poked its bureaucratic head into the world. In part the BBB owes its continued existence to Bel. She has always been generous and enthusiastic and I think her optimistic outlook is what I'll miss most. I wish Bel well in her SL future!
Our headquarters were in Bel's Linden stilt home but our very own Pru (prudence.anton) kindly offered us a new – and very elegant – home. The details are in the new locations below and we'll also be sending out a new LM to BBBug members.
Something magical is going on at Invoke – our new location this week. We're not too sure what it is but if you fly in to check it out, bear in mind that broom parking is 25c per hour. Our new HQ also appears below, but technically it's not a new location as it's handing out the same stamp as before.
By the way, for those of you who were disappointed last week, Fenella spoke to Jexxan, the owner of The Beehive. It opened and closed in the space of a week because, sadly, there was a family emergency in RL. When things have settled down, perhaps next year, Jexxan plans to reopen and the stamp will become available again. In the meantime, best wishes to her from all of us at the BBB. It was a lovely build while it lasted and we look forward to seeing it back on the grid in due course.
Three other stamps were discontinued this week: Time Lost Art, Time Lost Cafe and The Platy Beach House. So, if you have collected them already, congratulations. For everyone else, sadly it's too late.
