2006 - Simthing for Everyone
DeathKat has done 56 walls and floors. Gorgeous Wood floors, and more bricks, plains and patterns.
As usual - you go to DK's Walls Index, the pages with new walls are circled.17 August
It's my turn this time. I do love Plate decorations. There's oodles of them - and more to come.
You can find it in the Basics section.6 August
More Updates - From Mere this time... (She's going to have LOTS of updates!)
23 Gorgeous 'Harmony' living rooms (those that DK made matching walls for)3 August
From DeathKat - more walls than you can poke a stick at...
In Ireland with Internet. Yay! OK. There is 8 months worth of stuff to go up, and I'm not going to upload it all at once. But be assured, there are more updates coming.
First up, is Hannah's Houses. There are 7 new houses, and a link fixed. Yup! I found a non-empty package for her 'It's a Man's World." Please feel free to download.

Sims 2 News
Desert Spice Walls - modified. Two requests now fulfilled - Desert Spice Walls with Modern Light Wood moulding, and with no moulding. Also there's collections for all 3 sets.
A New Section: Blast from the Past. We start with the complete set of Maxis Wallpapers from Sims1 for Sims2. There will be more in this section in later times. I'm particularly pleased with the wallpapers, as I discovered a new way of enlarging the sims papers, to reduce the pixellation at close range.
We hope you enjoy the new Sims2 things and have a happy holiday season.

Sims 1 News
This is likely to be the last object update from us for Sims 1, as I'm fully engrossed by the possibilities of the Sims2 game. I'd like to express my gratitude to Maxis for inventing such an inspiring and consuming game. Also to the people who emailed me in the last 4 years, I've appreciated your mail, your ideas and thoughts.
Walls from DeathKat - these are the ones from Stone Age Sims, that have come home here.
Old Curiosity Shop from Kiri is a new section for sims1. This is the section where all the stuff that didn't quite make it as a set, and some that are very old sets that don't match a theme are going. Its worth trawling through the pages - there's previously unreleased stuff on most all of them.
Houses from Hannah is another new section. Hannah has made houses for sims1 Mod Squad, and now that Mod Squad has closed down, she's come home here.
Sims 2 News
There is a new version of C.E.P. - Please go get it to continue to be able to use recolours for Maxis meshes.

My Hotmail has stopped working - I'm not able to reply or forward mail. I've changed the site email address to yahoo - celebkiriedhel @ yahoo.com
Also - could the person who emailed me with the title "South West Sink" please email me again. Hotmail decided that it was a junk mail and deleted it before I had a chance to read it. Thanks.14 Aug 2005
James has excelled himself with his new meshes - magazine racks, menu boards, tables and chairs for a cafe, tables and stools and ceiling light for general living.
Mere has started to make meshes too! Her first published mesh is a painting mesh, with paintings by Roy Avis. She's also recoloured some of James' meshes to make beautiful mosaic tables with matching chairs.
Hannah has done 2 houses for Sims2 .
I've converted another set from Simports International - and opened up a new section: Simports International for Sims2. I'm also going to start putting the Juniper Sun Bus tour stuff in that area. Simports also has a new sims1 wall and floor set. Lots of recolours of James' meshes, and lots more carpets and floors for your basic home.From Hannah:
Hannah's Homes 2 houses - A bachelor pad, and a 1 bedroom home
New Meshes 5 tables, 2 chairs, a menu board, a magazine rack and a ceiling lightFrom Kiri:
26 June 2005I apologise to all of you for the delay in the update. I've been distracted/obsessed by the Legacy Challenge that I'm running at SimPixels and Graphics, and then with the EZboard being hacked and trying to recover years of data ... well it's been an interesting 2 months, just not that productive.
Today we've got a lot for you:
Site name-change: Now it's Simthing for Everyone!
First up, and most importantly - The Site has changed it's name. For the first 3 years, I maintained this site, and made most everything on it. But that's changed - firstly by the addition of my dear friend DeathKat, joining the site and then with James-SimWardrobe making meshes for us, and Hannah with her houses, and now Mere has given us some beautiful objects as well. It seems to me it's no longer Kiri's Simthing - it's ours. So "Simthing for Everyone" it is!
Stories has been updated with my Legacy Challenge story (6 episodes so far), and also links to the rules and gifts page. The gifts are things that you can't download - but are rewards for completing different parts of the challenge.
The FAQ page has been updated with Sims2 information.From DK:
Hope you enjoy it all,
Sims2: DeathKat has made some more beautiful walls for us. You can find them all on the update page
Also look up and to the left hand side - there's a new button "Stories". It's the continuing saga of Pleasantview in my game (which I've now started any number of times). Jimmy Phoenix is the first Sim to have his story told. It's been an ongoing tale at SimPixels and Graphics (my home forum). There's a few other story tellers at SimPixels and Graphics - so if you enjoy stories drop into SimChat and have a read.
Also - have a look at Previews... there's a new set there that will be coming soon.18 April
Sims2: SimWardrobe has made more meshes! This time 2 new screen meshes. One plain one and one with a rounded top. I've done a stack of recolors for them. As usual, they are free to recolor for free sites, and pay-sites that allow recolors of their meshes.14 April
Sims2: I'd like to welcome Hannah as a house builder to this site. Hannah has built some fabulous houses in the past, and her first home for us here is a real sweetie. Beachy Living is two apartments on one block, with lockable front doors. Very playable and quite affordable for the starting Sim!
For the moment, the homes will be unfurnished, until we've built up a library of objects that can be included in the Sims2packs.2 April
Wondrheart was a sweet and generous person that I had the good fortune to work with in 2004 on the Honey Dipper's site. She died in January 2005, and is much missed by those who knew her. Her love of the South-West was illustrated by her website: Wondrheart's Santa Fe Sims and e-group: Wondrheart's Sim Stuff, so I've made this collection as a memorial to her. I hope that you enjoy it, and keep Sandi Wondrheart in your remembrance. Kiri.15 March
In the meantime - SimWardrobe has done 2 new mesh bases that are re-colour friendly : A 3 tile frameless painting, and a small circular painting that can be used for clocks.
In fact, Kiri has - and you'll find them in Basic Art - 5 Clocks11 March
There's a Santa Fe Lounge that I did as a part of Juniper Sun Bus Tour for this month.2 March
PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD THE TAPESTRY MESHES (the recolors are ok and unchanged) THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THEM THAT HAS BEEN FIXED (that would have caused trouble for recolor-ers). Thankyou Very Much to Didi who picked it up!1 March
Next - SimWardrobe and I have been collaborating on some Sims2 objects on New Meshes. Our first offering are a 2-tile and 3-tile tapestry. I've done a stack of re-colors for them in Art Nouveau, and there will be more to come. You'll also find a tutorial on how to create recolors of your own.
Also some housework - I've decided to convert Simports International objects that I have made from sims1 to Sims2 - but they will be on this site, not on Simports. I've started with Rugs.
Finally, I have more paintings of another Art Nouveau Artist - Tamara de Lempicka23 February
Today's Update is HUGE!!
Sims2: DeathKat has done a ton of walls! 6 more Brick walls - some more interior walls, slate floors and BLISS! Tiled wall sets - completely gorgeous ones that I've been pining for. As well, she's done some single tile walls that will make any room into a bright, colorful extravaganza!
Important Notes: C.E.P. has been updated and you should download the new version.
THE SIMS2 OBJECTS TO BE EXPANSION PACK COMPLIANT
6 February 2005
Another Update - Another person who's precious to me has affiliated with my site - James of Paladin's Place (also known as SimWardrobe). We've been collaborating on some new mesh objects for Sims2, and I hope to have some re-colors available for you soon.
Next - DeathKat of DK Designs has been having trouble with bandwidth. So I've invited her to join my site with her Sims2 Walls, and she accepted! (As you can tell, I'm excited by this)
Her recent walls are now available here in the DK's Walls section.
As a site-warming welcome gift - you'll find furnishings matching one of DK's walls on her main page. Welcome DeathKat! I hope you enjoy your time with me here..

Who'd have thought - 3 years! This anniversary I have birthday presents for me as well as you!
First up - I'm pleased and honored to announce that I have affiliated with two sites, and two people who are very precious to me. The first is DeathKat of DeathKat's Designs. The other is Meredith of Mere's Folly. Please visit their sites - both are talented creators.
Next is something I'm very pleased to offer: The Art Nouveau Theme for Sims2! This was my most popular theme in Sims 1, I hope that you'll love it just as much in Sims2. All the Walls and Floors have been re-done using the original textures, and I think improved as well. There is also all new Art work - 121 pieces of it to be exact. What's the point in having a house furnished in Art Nouveau Style if all the doors and windows are modern? You can find new Doors and Windows in the Build Section! You'll need furnishings too - how about a Sofa Collection (Living Room) in William Morris style and a bedspread? (Bedroom)? And if you look carefully you'll also see there's a partially furnished house too!
Over 200 new pieces for your Sims to enjoy!
So Happy Birthday to Us and I hope you enjoy your gifts as much as I do

I got Sims2 last year, and finally got the new computer to run it properly just before Christmas. I am looking forward to creating many of the themes I've loved for Sims2.
In the meantime - I've been fiddling with the new Home Crafter Plus and there's 52 new carpet tiles for you in the Basic Carpets Collection.
2004 - Kiri's Simthing for Everyone
Note: There's a new 2x2 Rug Base - that's free to clone for non-pay objects!
DeathKat has more Walls! This time some New ones, but also some old ones from a previous site that are no longer up.
23 April 2004 - Later that same month!
DeathKat has made some more beautiful walls. See her pages for them. I've set up a page that has her new papers
I've got a new tutorial for you. How to make plain wallpapers.
Not quite ready with the things I'm making at the moment - however I've got something very special for you from DeathKat!!!
She has very kindly allowed me to host some of her wallpapers - And there's 5 pages of them - Vaulted Wallpapers, Interior Sets and Miscellaneous. I've been having a grand old time playing with them in the game - and they're here for you now.
The Tutorials are back up! The old A-buffer tutorial has been updated. More to come later...
The Links are back up. They're some great sites that I appreciate there. You may too.
1 February 2004
Just over 2 years ago folk from a group called the SimZMisfits talked me into having a site - Thank you my friends. 2 years and 3 host servers later, here we are - still going strong, if a little slower than the beginning. Thankyou to Lerilai who hosts both this site and Simports and does a splendid and worthwhile job at it too!
This Update has been brought to you by the letters ATS and the man SimWardrobe. Two Love beds made from Sandy's DIY love-bed base and headboard and footboard. SimWardrobe has gifted me with a new 3-tile base for painting that needs no expansion pack. He's also been teaching me to hack - so I've got 2 fire-safe fireplaces to replace the 2 I've already made. Also much thanks needs to go to Koromo who listened to me panic and tested the objects on her system. Good on ya Matey! And a big thankyou to Chariss who made the PSP template that I used to do the love beds with.
The New things:
In case you were wondering what happened to December? The Christmas update made it as far as the e-group. You can find it there still.
2003 - Kiri's Simthing for Everyone
Another Return to Simthing for Everyone - New York Loft theme is back.
I got kinda carried with the Tudor stuff - so there's some more build objects. There's another half-wall divider cause I wasn't happy with the last one - this one's based on a one-tile rug and the z-buffer's have been fixed for all directions, also it can go against the wall no troubles now. There's also stairs, an arch piece, window boxes and all :)
Speaking of all - there's a new section called "Walls n All" - for wallpapers and floors, and miscellaneous stuff that doesn't fit a theme. It has a new "Urban Stone" collection of plain wallpapers. These owe in great part to the example of Simorphor's excellent plain wallpapers. I finally worked out how to do them.
Special Update - October 2003
I wish to announce a new page. It's called "The Honour Roll." See the button up the top. Listed here are people who have been nominated because of the honour, generosity and kindness that they've shown within the Sims Community. If you're feeling like everything is terrible - go read this page to see what some people with huge hearts are doing in the background. If it makes your heart swell - why don't you go email that person and let them know that you appreciate what they are doing for us. It's not about the quality of their objects - its about the quality of their hearts. The finest quality - and we are blessed to know them. If you have had an experience of kindness, and want to honour them - feel free to drop a note in the e-group. I'll post it up here.
(Also the Tudor Cottage has been posted in the English Country Garden section)
Unfortunately - there is a delay with the Honour Roll and the Tudor Cottage. I hope to have them up next weekend. Sorry to all involved.
The new bits and pieces for the English Country Garden Set is an architectural set of objects, wallpapers, floors and roofs to make a Tudor Cottage.
I've popped up the Art Nouveau section as well, just the one new object for this set, but I hope to expand it for the proper October update later.
English Country Garden is now back up due to demand.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh - Architect, Interior Designer and inspiration! His page is now set up - you'll find it's a little different to the previous layout - there are buttons at the top and down the side - all the furniture is on the furnishings page until I decide which room it all goes into.
White Stone Living - Also up. It's a little messy at the moment, but at least you'll be able to get your hands on the new build items.
Just a temporary Page to let you know that the site is changing at Simthing for Everyone. Most of the links don't work - but the latest objects can be found at the New button above.
The FAQ button works - and there's been a change to my cloning policy. Please take note - all T-moggers.
The Email and Egroup buttons also work - so I am contactable during the renovation. If there's anything you particularly want - ask for it at the Egroup and I will upload it there.
Also I've joined the TSR Fansite listing - feel free to use it to find other worthwhile sites.
