  1. As a rule of thumb, you should endeavor to avoid taking irrelevant or trite pictures, which are commonly seen by people every day. In the word of Nick Bilton who works for the New York Times, (his Instagram account has more than fifty thousand followers) "people are more likely to admire you for quality over quantity - yes you may well take a fancy picture of your Starbucks cup but if I don't know who you are and your photo is generic, I won't be monitoring you. At instagram, "think quality" rules!

  2. I am going to try and make this for my kitten he had one but has hidden it and i can't find It is all most time for Spring cleaning so i will find it then Thank You for the pattern God Bless and keep u the beautiful work
