Early October Update!

I’m hoping to be updating more frequently now, especially since there will be lots of new things added (and a few things demolished). I don’t have to spend copious amounts of time plot resetting, so that should make my updates more frequent. A few quick notes: -My dream address changed (again…). It is now 4200-4705-7130 but it has been updated! I updated before I started making all the big changes and I will update again when I am finished with them 🙂 -I will be at home (which means I have wifi 😀 ) this coming weekend (10/10 – 10/12) and next weekend (10/17 – 10/19), so if you want to wifi, tell me and we’ll see if we can find a good time 🙂 -I am looking to grow more blue roses but I just have the one so far, so if anyone has any tips on growing blue roses, that would be awesome! If I could get one more blue rose, I could breed those two, but no luck yet…Also still need gold roses but I’ll need to start my second town first, which reminds me… -Hoping to start Lilywood soon, but, as always, I find myself being super picky…It’s also super annoying that you only have a 1/5 chance of getting apples, which is my main requirement for Lilywood. Hopefully I’ll find a town soon! I want to start growing gold roses and more hybrids!

Introducing: Autumn and Noelle!

Autumn

I’ve had Autumn in my town for awhile, but have not gotten around to doing too much with her until now. I finally came up with some concept ideas for Autumn (beyond the fall theme, which is very broad). I want her character and house to have a “country style” and “harvest” feel to it (of course with one room of Halloween furniture). I love the combination of her bright blue eyes (color of the fall sky) with her orange/red braids (the color of the changing leaves). The braid hairstyle also strikes me as very “country” as well. I still need to upgrade her house to a castle so I can have a castle for every season.

Noelle

Noelle FINALLY gets to move out of her tent and into a house 😀 It needs a few more renovations to the outside (blue arched fairytale door and a fancy fence), but it’s coming along nicely! I’m thinking of changing her hair color to light blue, but we’ll see. I like the fancy hairstyle since it reminds me of getting dressed up for holiday parties! Noelle’s concept is going to be Holiday party/snow themed with maybe a cozy library and/or a bathhouse for relaxing on those cold winter nights. I’m also toying with the idea of a star room, since the stars are often out early and very bright during the winter, but we’ll see! Villager Happenings Not a ton of villager happenings in this post, but I’ll put up the few I have! HNI_0074

I sure hope so, Beau! I still get a party and cake at 26 but I’m not sure if that counts as being “grown up” lol 😀

I’m confused as to why Lily has a frog costume in her house when she is already a frog? She needs a better Halloween costume than that! Wait until you see what Lenore has in store for her Halloween costume 😀

Kiki was taking a walk in front of town hall and was right under the Luna flag! I can’t get over how much they look alike! So cute!!! ❤

HNI_0096

Well, Julian, we are in my spring/flower room so that MIGHT have something to do with it!

Around Town

Lots of stuff has been happening around town!

HNI_0097

This cardboard table appeared at my retail this morning!

HNI_0063 HNI_0062

I got my last statue about a week ago! Now I just need to collect paintings 😀

HNI_0064

I love how you can see the lighthouse from the dock! Helps Kapp’n see at night! HNI_0071

The first double rainbow I’ve seen in Citaluna!

HNI_0066

Finally finished Noelle’s winter illumination garden! Need to add a few more white/blue flowers and put down some cool patterns once the snow falls!

HNI_0061

I took down the PWPs in front of town hall and decided to go with some nice landscaping and some cute water patterns! I love it and it looks so much better now 🙂 HNI_0060

Town hall was especially pretty that night! Love the tiny crescent moon! I want to put in blue roses with the pink tulips to match the town hall roof!

HNI_0073

One of my favorite spots in town!

HNI_0085

The waterfall picnic area is coming along! I want to add some more trees and bushes. That darn rock is going to be a pain to work around though 😦

Coming Soon!

HNI_0098

I put this fence in as a garden for Resee, but there is too much fence and not enough garden and it takes up a lot of room. Plus the fence is sort of ugly…(it looks good in other towns filled with fruit baskets and such, so I think it’s just that the space is too small). I also could not find any pumpkin patch or vegetable garden qr codes. I’m thinking of putting a windmill here (kind of nice fall PWP) and then putting some flowers/bushes/trees around it.

HNI_0100 HNI_0001

I’m going to move these topiaries somewhere else. The water pattern around them sticks out (it really bugs me) and I want more room for roses and trees since it’s a rose garden. I want the flower arch to be the center of attention since it has all the roses on it!

HNI_0099

I just came up with this idea for the area surrounding the river on the other side of Lenore’s property! I’ll have to see how it turns out, but I’ve got some landscaping and PWP ideas I am excited to try! I’ll update and post pictures as it develops!

Ideas Welcome!

There a few places around town that I need to add some more things to because they seem kind of boring…HNI_0002

This area just above Melody’s summer castle-I was thinking maybe some landscaping, since I am almost at my PWP limit 😦

HNI_0003

Melody’s front yard needs some work. I have a pattern of bushes I want to try using but now sure how good it will look…

This little area just to the left of Noelle’s property by the front of town

HNI_0081

And the other side in front of the train station. I’m going to need to use patterns since there is no room to plant/build anything. The flower clock is just below the yellow cosmos.

Photo Gallery (Finally)!

UPDATE 05/08/2014: My repaired 3DS XL with the town of CItaluna will most likely be returning to me on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week!!! 😀 I will be updating again so after I get it back! Expect some new pictures!

So I have sent my 3DS XL off to Nintendo to be repaired. Nothing major, but the R shoulder button is very “sticky” and is very annoying to play with and the warranty is still good, so I figured I should get it fixed. That said, I will be without my Animal Crossing town for about 1 and 1/2 to 2 weeks 😦 I figured this would be a good time to put up some photos of town and talk about town happenings and whatnot! Enjoy!

Featuring: Lenore’s Castle of Spring

Image

Finally found a spring-like ground pattern for Lenore’s castle garden (her season is spring)! I love the azalea bushes in bloom! I’m thinking of maybe replacing the fountain with a flower clock but I can’t decide 😛

Image

Someone finally suggested the statue fountains! Now if they would just suggest those elegant metal benches to put behind the fountains! I did a an arrangement of springy colored flowers as well. I planted tons of cherry trees and was really sad when I found out that only the non-fruit bearing trees turn pink 😦 Oh well, I’ll know for next year!

Image

Finally finished Lenore’s Princess bedroom 😀 It still needs a few minor details but I’m so excited to have all of the Princess furniture!

Image

I was redecorating my main floor, when Kiki stopped by for a visit 😀

Around Town

Image

Citaluna’s town flag featuring Luna! This was my first attempt at making a pattern and I think it turned out pretty well!

Image

Taking a break with Bob-Bon 🙂

Image

Did a lot of plot resetting and FINALLY got Cookie’s house where I wanted it! Her house is one of my favorites in the game and thought it would look so cute next to the pond ❤

 

Image

Lenore in her element (err, season I guess)!

Fun with Friends!

Image

Amy (whose blog is here, check it out 🙂 http://aforestlife.wordpress.com/) and I did some Wifi with our mayors! I got some amazing items from my wishlist and I was able to help her out with some of the items on her wishlist as well! Thanks Amy!!! 😀

Image

Estel and Lenore inside Lyra’s (one of Amy’s characters) house in the throne room she made! I love the bright colors!!!

Image

My RL friend stopped by with her character, Dove, who hails from the town of Kingdom! I love the crown she has! I want one too!

That’s about all I have for now! Hopefully, my 3DS XL comes back soon and I can do more picture posts! In the meantime, I’m having fun playing my cycle town (which is a mess) and playing Bravely Default. I’m glad I kept my original 3DS!

Public Works Projects/Landscaping! (And some advice for screen caps)

So I really want to start putting pictures of my town up and I was wondering which methods people find the most helpful for putting up the screen caps. I know many different ways, but I want to know what works best and what is easiest. There have been many new PWPs that have been built and I have been working on my dream villagers and flower arrangements so I want to put up pictures 😀 For now, I have updated my dream address which is 4200-3677-2937 so feel free to come visit 🙂 The statue fountains are up in front of Lenore’s house but I am sadly still waiting for the beautiful metal benches to put under the cherry trees 😦 My rose garden needs some work too, since I took lots of the pink roses to put around my front garden and still need to put the coordinating flowers on the right side so it’s symmetrical. Here is a list of the PWP projects I am still looking to get and where they are going to go!

Flower Clock – in front of the train station where I have the place mapped out (and maybe one in front of Lenore’s house to replace the fountain if I can have two)

Metal Bench – For Lenore’s front garden under the cherry trees behind the fountains to add to my elegant spring garden

Bell – Will go near re-tail where the yellow bench place holder is in the Fall area (Fall always makes me think of school starting and school bells ringing, so I figured it would be fitting to have a bell near Autumn’s house)

Picnic Blanket – It’s not summer without a picnic and what better place to have it than right by the waterfall! (Will replace the outdoor chair place holder to the right of Melody’s house)

That’s about all I’m missing for PWPs I want (as of right now). I am still working on getting hybrids, specifically pink lilies, black lilies and pink roses. If you have any other ideas for PWP’s that may look good, let me know!
