Ferret Friday #25-Photo shoot

Most of the time, I capture A. E. wherever and whenever I am able.  For Halloween, I wanted the shot to be a bit more posed.  I knew that this would take some doing.  Of course, the week before Halloween went by so fast that I didn't get a chance to make the pirate hat until Sunday night.  This made my window of opportunity very short indeed since Halloween was on Monday and the post needed to be up before I left for work on Monday.  After I had finished the hat, I gathered everything that I would need so that I would be ready when A. E. appeared from his latest snooze. I also enlisted the Hubster to be the ferret wrangler and Ferrevite giver.
 A. E. was quite willing to take part in the Ferrevite portion of the photo shoot.
 I love how his hair is mussed up in this shot after he rubbed the hat off.

 He seems to be thinking "Really? I can't believe you are making me do this."

 He liked the pumpkin and was very willing to explore it.

In the end, there were lots of cute pictures.  There were very few pictures with the hat though because he could get the hat off faster than you can imagine. Fortunately, I got one and that is all that I needed.  AE looked so cute that I was even willing to overlook Hubster's foot in the background.

Can we Talk about Packaging?

Today, many people (myself included) use ancient chain maille armor techniques to create jewelry. Basically, artisans take small rings made of wire and weave them together in intricate designs. In this way, the ancient weaves are re-imagined for a modern audience.

     Although some people take raw wire and create their own rings, many rely on retailers for their needs. From that need, a growing cottage industry has sprung up to supply makers with kits that include all of the rings and instructions for a design. Most of these businesses use very simple packaging for their products. Zipper seal bags with simple printed labels are very common.

     For companies that are a little larger, heat seal plastic tubing becomes the most common form of packaging. There is one operation that packages per order so that the rings come in a long, unlabeled, sausage-like strip of tubing with a heat seal between each type of ring. Customers must match the segment of the tube to the invoice to figu…

Ferret Friday #3

We have discovered that our ferret is an addict.  There is one thing that he loves most in this world, and  I am sure that you would never guess what it is.  We don't even know how he first discovered it, but all it took was leaving the kitchen pantry door open one time.  What is this crack for ferrets you ask?  Coffee Mate French Vanilla creamer in those cute little individual cups (and if you dare to follow the link, the comments make me think our ferrets isn't the only one that is addicted).

I am sure that it started out innocently enough.  The tabs on the little cups are probably perfect for ferret teeth to grip.  The weight is probably a satisfying heft without being too heavy. The cups are small, portable, and easily hidden. And hide them he did.  But then, a tooth may have accidentally slipped through the foil and released the contents and a new discovery was made.  I am sure that he thought "Wow...a treasure and a treat."  Since his first taste, he has been t…

Ferret Friday #16 - Pantry Raid

After several months of not having Coffee Mate in the house due to A. E.'s addiction, I felt sorry for the Hubster and purchased a box.  It didn't take long for the A. E. to "ferret" it out.  I caught him in the act as he was investigating the pantry on his way to the "crack".
