Because I just can’t make this shit up!

Sooooo, I just spent the last hour removing flypaper glue from the kitten.  Yeah, this is the kind of shit that happens to me… quite often, actually.  Not glue specifically, but random chaos.

Between screaming howls (kittens are really LOUD when they’re not happy) and tearing flesh (mine of course) I was able to catch a few shots.  Not with the Nikon, but with my phone, because the Nikon is in the shop.  Again, more chaos.

Notice the crazy spiky sticky hair?  Nice huh?  Even her little paws were sticking to the carpet.  If only I were home when it all went down!  I can imagine her tearing through the house all tangled up in a sticky mess.  And speaking of the sticky mess, it has yet to be located.  Awesome.

So, in case you find yourself in the same predicament one day, all I have to say is VEGETABLE OIL.  Douse them in vegetable oil.  Then lather, rinse, repeat.

So, for those in the know, it’s a Wharf Rat kind of night!!

Photo Facelift

It’s amazing how new pictures give a fresh look to old inventory; an alternate view has the ability to catch the eye of a prospective buyer.  Something that has been viewed numerous times is shown in a new light and just like that it finds a home!

Rephotographing old inventory is something I’ve been meaning to do, but for lack of urgency it ended up becoming one of those things that fell by the wayside.  Finally the time has come to get this mini-project into motion!

First to go back in front of the lens: Flower Pot Covers.

I had gotten the idea for these little cuties back in ’09.  I had given them as holiday gifts for my plant-loving friends, along with placing several in my Etsy shop.  The original images were all taken with my old point and shoot, inside with a flash.  I rephotographed them outside with natural light.

Clearly, the new images speak for themselves!  I’ve swapped out the old pictures on Etsy and have begun listing them in my Artfire shop.  I’ve only had a couple of sales through Artfire, but that is due to my lack of interest.  I opened that shop several years ago but never gave it much attention.  Now that there is a monthly fee for sellers, I’ve decided to give it another go since its popularity has grown.
