The sunniest spot in my studio is the window on the west wall. That's also the place I was instructed by my fabulous felines to place the kitty bench so they could enjoy a nice sunbath in the afternoon. On occasion, I have to borrow their bench. I photograph my beads under studio lighting for the most part, but once in a while I have a set of beads that just beg for natural sunlight. What I hoped was a natural admiration for my beady creations turns out to be them wondering what the heck mommy is doing on their cat bench. You can just about bet that any beads I photograph in the sunlight have been properly "cat-scanned". Below are some photos of cat-scans in progress.....

Into Every Life......

...... A Little Cat Hair Must Fall.

Try as I might to keep the cat hair out of my packaging, sometimes a stray hair is just unavoidable. You see, the problem is that my shipping supply storage shelf also doubles as a "Feline shipping assistant bunk bed". The little slackers think anything resembling a box (or a laundry basket full of clean underwear and socks) must be a bed, so in effort to keep them off of my shipping boxes I had to give them boxes of their own. So if you ever receive a box of beads from me and notice that single cat hair prominently displayed under the shipping tape, please take pitty on me. I'm the one wearing the angora underwear!...Oh meow! >^..^<
