MySims News

Please note I'm currently working on the new site. I didn't want to take the site offline though, so you can still visit it. However me working on the site while it's still online means a lot of the pages will appear wonky. But not to worry, it won't take too long. Happy

My celebration nails today! :D


10 years!!

Woah, there is it. SNW is 10 years old today. If you would have told me about this 10 years ago I would have laughed and would not have believed you. But it's quite a milestone. I'll repeat it again. SNW is 10 years old today. Well, officially anyway. I started in January 2004 I think, preparing the website and content. And somewhere in March I opened up the site. But I never officially opened or anything. So at some point, about a year later, I thought to myself... When did I actually start? I should have an official date or something. So that's when I decided it would be the 24th. And if you were to go on the forums and look at my oldest posts there, those are from September, or even August 2003? Because I've actually had fansites since 2000. But it was just different with SNW. Clearly, cause SNW is still here :D Despite some bad times when we lost nearly everything. I didn't give up (but it has been hard at times). I managed to get back up on my feet and I started doing again what I love so much. Creating stuff and putting it on my fansite haha. I just love being part of this community. So here's to at least 10 more!! :D



As for the giveaway. Some of you may have heard that I was planning to go a giveaway for the 10th anniversary. There will still be one. However, all the stuff I am supposed to giveaway isn't here yet. I was planning to do a video to show all the prizes I'd be giving away. But yeah not much to show now so... I'll do that later for sure. Happy



I've asked if people would be interested in a Q&A video on my channel, and people actually are! So if you have any questions about SNW (or something else you want to say, that's fine too) just comment below this post, or on Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr.



I'd just like to point out that without a loving community, I probably would have stopped my fansite a long time ago. I'm glad to be part of this community. I'm glad I met and meet so many people and made a lot of friends. It's mostly because of The Sims and because of my site. That's just really special to me, and it's something I think about a lot. So, basically. Thank you. Thank you for being a visitor, a member, a fan, a follower, a subscriber, a friend. xoxo Rosie

Do you like creating artworks related to The Sims series? Then this should be perfect for you! Here's a blog from SimGuruLyndsay!

Hello Simmers!

Many years ago The Sims team moved to Redwood Shores – we got a fancy new floor with fancy new décor, we got to name our meeting rooms (Bladder Failure & Social Bunny hee hee) and make it our own.  Recently we've been given a chance to refresh our studio again! It’s time to put up some new decorations, new paint, new flair and we want your help!  You are such a HUGE part of why we do what we do – your creativity constantly inspires and motivates us.  We'd like to create some spaces in our studio dedicated to YOUR creations.  What does The Sims mean to you? Paintings, sketches, collages, digital art – what has it inspired you to create?  Send us your art – something that represents you and The Sims (any The Sims product that moves you) and we'll start creating a gallery dedicated to you.

What have you made? We'd love to see creations inspired by any of The Sims games – from the very first The Sims , to The Sims 3 , to any of the console games (hey, The Urbz had some amazing style)! Pieces can be any of the following:

  • Photographs
  • Collages
  • Paintings, drawings, sketches
  • Handmade crafts that can be hung on walls

Please send your physical creations to:

The Sims
209 Redwood Shores Parkway
Redwood City, CA 94065

Not able to ship something to us but want to share your creations? We’re accepting digital artwork as well! Send your digital wonders inspired by The Sims to: with the subject line: Artwork for the SimGurus

Get your stuff sent to us by April 4, 2014!

We can't wait to see what you will send us! Keep an eye out on our channels as we'll be sure to show off the creations on our walls! 

Thank you for continuing to be part of The Sims universe and helping to make The Sims the special thing that it is.
