Matted Prints!

Being a DIY person, I sometimes forget people don't like to do it themselves. Or can't. Or won't. Matting stuff is one of those things that people mean to do, but never get around to...

Starting today, I am offering matted prints that fit into store bought frames. You just pop it in and its ready to roll.

I think I may eventually stop selling prints on their own with no mat. I just like the delivery of a finished product better. Its such a nice little package. And it safer, less likely to be damaged, and a better gift. Its just better! BETTER!

In other news, a miraculous thing occurred! Rocko the Cat actually sat in his cat bed!! This may not seem newsworthy, but indeed it IS. Rocko is a jerk who hates anything he is supposed to like.

I always try and shove his fat little body into this thing, but he jumps out of it like its made of fire. He would rather try and sleep in my photography light box or lumpy electric cords. But finally, in secret, he went into it!
Cat fantasy

HAHA. Photographic evidence that I rule. I put it on the table that sits in front of our window and he sat in it and watched birds. See him lick those little black lips?

As soon as I took these pictures he ran out of it. He doesn't like to be shamed on the internet.


  1. i love rocko's cat bed! where did you get it? or did you make it? great colour!

    haha, cats are so funny when they're bird watching. what's up with that sound they make?

    smart idea about the mats.

    hey, i didn't know you were a "house" fan. what did you think of the finale?

  2. -its an Ikea bed. It had a basket that went under it, but rocko PEED on it. He hated it!

    -You would think that sound would scare away birds!

    -I really liked House (Hugh) from Blackadder. But now I am officially heart him. The finale made me weepy!! :-)

    LMAO THAT IS AWESOME! My cat is the same way. Once you catch him he's oughta there. He loves his cat cubicle/cave thing now without shame.

    Oh, I'm so guilty about the mat thing. The print I bought for my bathroom is still sitting there on the counter in it's plastic.. no mat, no frame. I am SO LAZY! So, I applaud your idea to sell them like that.

    Silly Rocko. He thinks he's so tough, but he's really not.

  7. Lol, Rocko's caught in the act!

    I love the idea of offering matted prints. It does look nicer to have them all framing ready.

  8. Rocko is so adorable, and I love the way you write about him!

    (Hi, not a crazystalkerperson, I bought some awesome bat and Batcat stuff from you a while back, and owe you a photo of Stuffed Mamabat/Babybat with their intended recipient at some point!)
