More photos of my finished page


The little photo in the corner attached by the paper clip is a little inspiration piece that I gathered together and photographed. I'll try to post those photos sometime.

It's about time I posted photos of the completed page from Debee's class {Inspire Lovely}. I fiddle so much with my photos on the computer that it takes me forever. I just need to learn how to properly use my camera so I don't have to do as many adjustments with iPhoto. I am so sad too, I don't have Photoshop CS5 anymore, as I've previously cried about in an earlier post :(.... Oh it's so hard to make my photos the way I want them without that program :( By the way, the striped pennants that I handstitched were made from the security lining of envelopes that come in the mail with bills..hehe, I guess you can say that there's a good side to receiving bills in the mail.

So whatelse is up?
Today, I've been working on making a handmade greeting. I've got so many ideas in my head that I don't know which one to take on. I'd like to say I will photograph and post...crossing my fingers on that one :)

Last night, I went to see Eat, Pray, Love. I cried, and I hate crying at the movies. The locations for filming were gorgeous. Makes me want to take a relaxing voyage to get inspired for art and of course take a kazillion photographs. Loved Liz's (Julia Roberts) outfits, they looked so light and comfy. I haven't been to the movies since Clash of the Titans..haha, not the 80's version, the 2010 Clash of the Titans :)

Have a creative and relaxing weekend everyone :)


  1. This is sooooo delicate! Lovely work, Merissa!
    I´m reading the book of the movie you saw... I´m actually enjoying it a lot.
    Have a great and creative weekend, too!

  2. Thank you Euphoria :)
    The book, I have to read it too :) I purchased it several months ago and haven't finished reading it. Maybe you will get to see the movie after you've finished reading. The scenery is breathtaking :) and Julia Roberts does a great job at playing Liz Gilbert. I'm pretty sure if the story went on, her character would also be in beautiful Argentina :)

  3. i adore your page! I feel so guilty i havent finished mine!

  4. Hi Claire :) thank you! And when you do finish yours, don't forget to put up the photos in the Flickr pool that Debee started for class. I'm sure that your page will be cool :)

  5. Actually, I want to finish it before watching the movie :)

  6. Hi Euphoria,
    That's a good idea! I couldn't wait myself, and ended up going to the movie before finishing the book. I've had the book for months now but haven't gotten around to finish :) I'm such a bad book reader, I get too distracted. I would love some peace and quiet and a nice day to just immerse myself with a book...ahhh someday!
    Have a good week! Enjoy reading :)
    xo, Merissa.


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to.
