Step one – position cat28 May, 2011

We’ve been working all month on taking new photos for our Etsy shop. Bright, spiffy photos using our new, super lo-fi set up. It consists of a board painted gray, a window, and indirect light. Oh, and a cat in a box.

Our shop is slowly looking more coherent. We’ve celebrated 50 sales. Every month we make a little more money than the month before (almost enough to cover our electric bill). Somedays it really feels like we’re running a business here!

  • Has the cat ever woke up and gotten out mid picture?

  • CJA – no. the cat doesn’t really wake up and get out ever.

  • You are so talented! I have to go check if my second order ever went through. This post made me realize it never came in the mail nor did I hear from you about it. Never a good sign when it comes to Nicola and technology.

  • Sadly, as I thought, it was my tech glitch. Luckily, you hadn’t sold the one I wanted, so I bought it. I think. Ha!

  • Nicola – you did! we’ll have it in the mail to you today.

  • As I bought two of the cards above, seeing how they were photographed now makes them even more endeared to me. They were intended as gifts but now I am reluctant to part with them…
