I see you made a lot of photoshops actions, but what are photoshop actions?
Photoshop Actions are the recordings of commands that can be applied to one or multiple images in Photoshop. When you press play, it applies these recorded commands. Using an action can actually help you save a lot of time.

Where do you find al those ladybugs?
I live in the Netherlands and you have many ladybugs here in my garden, neigbourhood, especially in spring. I think I'm just lucky! (because I love ladybugs)
Where did you bought those little bottles you used in your photographs?
1. Craft shops
2. Second-hand shops
3. Etsy.com etsy.com
4. Claires claires.com
What's the liquid made of inside the bottles?
Most of the time it is food dye mixed with water, this makes the mixture clear. I also use paint mixed with water, this makes it turbid.
What about the ceramic mugs with the smiley faces and rosy cheeks? Where do you get those?
I bought the cups without faces at a Dutch shop. Drew the faces on it myself with a black erasable pencil. (brand: stabilo) I added the cheeks with a red erasable pencil (stabilo) and blurred it a bit with my finger.
How do you get your guinea pigs to sit still?
My guinea pigs are very calm animals, especially Booboo. They just don't move a lot in front of the camera, I guess I am lucky with that!
