Eric Taylor’s City Pack Basket doubles as a Kitty Condo as well

Mr. Basketmaker made me this pack basket a few years ago. It got it’s name from the photo I posted of my sister wearing it while we were speed walking in New York City (see post here if you missed it).

Eric has it out on his workbench because he will be teaching this basket in November and is referencing it while making the materials (well, I’m assuming that’s why it’s there).

But someone else has decided to make it her own private little condo…

It even comes with its own special patio…

Perfect for stretching following an afternoon nap…







Now I get my wine back.

Well I didn’t meet my self-imposed goal of complete photo organization yesterday. Not only did I discover tons more photos on my old laptop, Mr. Basketmaker was photographing more photos!

Below is his Wine Caddy Basket he was shooting.

Note: this basket has gotten a lot of wear and tear over the years. We probably should’ve photographed it before we started heavily using it. Glad he took the photo—now I can break open one of these bottles! (To EricTheSherpa from Maine: my favorite wine is Francis Ford Coppola’s Black Label Claret… see it sitting in there?)

Now back to processing even more “new basket” photos…

Knee deep in basket photos…

I’m back home and back to work. Today’s priority? Organizing all of Mr. Basketmaker’s photos! What a job, let me tell you.

There’s thousands of photos in various folders within more folders and not only on my computer but Eric’s as well.

And then there’s different sizes and versions for proposals, print and web. Not to mention on the duplicates and triplicates we have.

It’s a project that’s been on my ‘To Do’ list for years. But I need to get it done because Eric and I are putting together a large portfolio book of all his baskets. Our goal is to finish today, before midnight!

If I don’t make our self-imposed deadline, it will probably go on my lengthy ‘To Do’ list and stay there until next year…
