Bring on the Photoshop!

Several of the catalogs I love to order from are now promoting the fact that they no will not Photoshop or retouch the images of their models.
While I should be all, "yay for natural beauty!" I am, in point of fact, thoroughly bummed.
This means that the dewy-faced girls with all the golden freckles and tousled locks in those sports bras are, I am to believe, actually that gorgeous.
Whereas before, I could plausibly believe that those six pack abs had been digitally re-mastered, cellulite smoothed with the Bandage tool, and lanky shins artificially un-scarred.
No more!
Usually, when you meet someone model-gorgeous in person, you can pick out their flaws to see that they, too are human: they're an ugly crier, or their penmanship is horrible, or they're a low-information voter, or their cuticles are in terrible condition.
But, caught in a moment of sheer, well-lit photography, all you can see is: God just wanted to make sure you know that life is just that damn unfair.

Come Over and See the Hell I've Made for Myself!

So, I'm trying to hire some help with my eBay store and to get my Etsy store up and running.

I thought I was offering a kind of nifty deal: you get to work at home, when you want. Decent hourly pay with a percentage of profits.

It's not really difficult work. I mean, after all, I do it. And I've done most of the tedious work of photographing, weighing and measuring. It just needs to be listed and shipped.

But good help seems to be very hard to find.
