Are there any craft bloggers here. I have mine linked in my signature. I post all kinds of stuff on there. Do you have a blog you want to share with us?

Cute blog! I like that you show how to make kitty toys. I might just have to try that crocheted cat ball.

 

One thing - you might want to build a lightbox for your pics. It's super easy! You just need one large cardboard box, some white tissue paper, tape/glue, a large sheet of posterboard, a box cutter, and a rule. It takes about half an hour to build and makes for great photos!

Here's a tutorial. Just make sure that you take the pics in natural sunlight, and possibly with an additional light source to brighten it all up.

The only thing I recommend changing is doing a 2" edge instead of a one inch one. It makes the box more stable without hindering how much light is let in. Also, if you use a lamp for more lighting use a compact fluorescent bulb. They burn cooler. You do NOT want your tissue paper catching fire! Luckily I haven't had this problem but I have heard stories...

My blog is in my signature line...I blog about my crochet projects and the books that I read.  Lately though it has been more about crochet then books.
