I've known Cutewillow Carlberg for most of my SL years! Cute is a beautiful gifted lady who has many strings to her bow! She has lots of experience in running virtual clubs and is also a talented SL builder, creating many wonderful objects for the virtual world of Second Life.
Cute ran the very popular and famous New West End Club (regretfully now closed) with SL business partner Clive Hissop. As well as being part owner of the club, Cute had been the hostess in the early days before becoming a talented dj. Cute can look back on many magical evenings at the club, with her great music and easy going style she made sure everyone had a brilliant time. Among the other clubs Cute has dj'd at are Toby's Juke Joint, The Ratwarf and many other venues. She tells me that her favourite place and one that will always be in her heart is the New West End Club as well as her own little pub which she opened for a short time as well.
Just recently however, Cute has had to put her dj'ing on hold, her beloved real life dog Willow has been very ill and Cute is devoting her time to looking after her much loved pet. Cute told me that Willow is now blind and is also diabetic; Cute explained that she nearly lost her this year. So she has to treat Willow's diabetes twice a day and also keeps a close eye on her to make sure she is ok. Cute has promised to return to dj'ing as soon as she can.
Whilst Cute hasn't dj'd full time for a while, she still dj's occasionally for friends if they ask her to. She has also been busy with her virtual building and she has opened a shop in the Second Life Market Place called 'Unique Garden Creations'. I asked Cute how she got into building in SL and she told me she had always loved watching Clive build ("if he let you" giggled Cute!). Cute had always made the gifts for the SL Hunts she used to hold at the New West End Club and I can verify how beautifully made her gifts are.
Cute has stocked Unique Garden Creations with some exquisite mesh sculptures and fountains. They are very elegant and she also has them scipted with bird and water sounds. She tells me she is still experimenting with new builds and she intends to include plants and flowers later on. Take a look at Cute's artwork, her work would grace any SL garden.
I asked Cute if she had anything to say about her time in SL. She says she has made many new friends along the way, but still misses her days at the New West End Club with Clive. Cute added "I truly miss Fred (Clive), I called him, he called me Wilmmaaaa. I miss him so much, I miss dj'ing there weekly, I just miss my friends. I also miss vinnie (vinnie was the club's pet vulture, he swooped around the clubbers as they danced and became quite famous in his own right!), and Tasty too (Tasty was a regular at the New West End Club). I just miss Fred aka Clive . come back soon Clive I miss yah xxx"
I wish Cutewillow much success with her new shop in Market Place and I would like t thank her for this interview.
