Thank you . I'm glad it was useful to you! I've actually got this photo for this month on a photo calendar I made and gave to some family and friends as it does feel very festive.
The secret to getting the shot was putting a white sheet over a couch the cats would already sometimes curl up on and also putting an electric heat pad under the sheet to make it a nice warm spot. Once the cats were comfortable I could put baubles and lights around and they just didn't want to move, although it was pure fluke which way they were lying!

What an amazing picture! I love all the different textures used in this piece, the softness of the pillow to the shiny cool touch of the bell to the fluffiness of the cat! The colors mesh together to make an exquisite piece! And the DOF is superb also! Well done!
