It is January 2013 and I have a bunch of new fabrics in the studio! Here are some new Cat Canoes now available:
I will warn you right now, there are some funny pictures in this set!
Available in my Etsy store.
Look. It isn’t easy to do.
They know that you’re up to something, so they either try to sniff the camera lens, or they walk away, so all you get is a close up of cat nose, or a long shot of cat bee-hind.
In this photo shoot, I’m using a radio control device so I can wrangle the cat into position and then take the photo, or at least that was the idea. I was having a hard time making the radio thing work though, and the end result is really hilarious serious of photos. Enjoy me looking like a complete dork in this set.
Thanks to Pacer Stacktrain for taking time out of his busy birdwatching schedule to help me with this photo shoot!
Sometimes I get the funniest, most charming photos during a photography session!
I learned that people aren’t that great about leaving feedback for sellers on eBay or Etsy. I think we are just busy and we forget to do it. Well, it is a really different story when our cats are involved! My Cat Ball customers are really good about remembering to leave me feedback! Not only do they leave me feedback, they also often take the time and effort to send me letters, thank you notes and photos! Here are some of the fun photos that my Etsy customers have shared with me.
How To Photograph Cats #2: An Exercise in Futility
I’ve been using a tripod and remote shutter control device a lot lately. This allows me to reposition the cat frequently (these things move around a lot). The disadvantages are that it can be hard to get the camera to “hear” the remote, and my butt seems to be in about 50% of the photos. I figured this set of photo outtakes was worth a giggle.
The story that I heard is that Nikko was rescued as a wee lad and bottle fed. Kudos to his people for taking on this huge job! I really appreciate people who adopt pets, especially black cats.
Nikko lives in Seattle and his people bought the Cat Canoe in an auction to support their local school. I love the story in the scrapbook, describing how Nikko simply knew that this new thing was for him!
I’ve received so many new fabrics and haven’t had time yet to make many samples. Here is my new butterfly fabric worked into a Cat Canoe.
I can make a matching Cat Ball from these fabrics, too – until the fabric runs out!
This product can also be purchased in my web store if you aren’t an Etsy user.
