Photo Styling with Mini Weiner Doggie (^•^)


Working on a project for the Blogging Your Way online class that I'm currently taking this month. Remember the hand carved stamp I did? Well, I figured I could use it in my project and I was having my kind of fun arranging it this way and that way for a photo.

I cut out my stamped image and stuck him on a spool of thread that I got from my sister Hillary. I placed that on layers of petals that I had cut to form a flower. I snapped my photo. 

Later, I took a photo from a different angle. I also stuck a doily under the petals. I got my pack of doilies from my mom during my last trip home to Kauai. I can always shop in her craft stash and find lots of cool things to use.

This is what you can find me doing in the day while I'm at home. I can do this stuff forever, it's super fun for me! Plus, I had lots of coffee to keep me going, and some great music in the air. My kind of perfect day. (^•^) Mini weiner doggie will appear in a little spot in my project that I hope to post soon.

Thank you so much to the wonderful Minitoko for hooking me up with the cute Doodle-Doo digital clip art you see in the 1st and 2nd photo. XOXO!!!

  3. Hi Merissa,
    I am a fellow student at BYW and I am discovering your blog.... very very inspiring, I love it so much. May I ask where you got the BYW Winter 2010 button?
    Talk soon ;)

  4. Merissa, just popping over from Blogging Your Way, and I'm so glad I did! Your blog is flat-out lovely, and it's always nice to find a fellow Hawaiian!

  5. Aloha Marie!
    Thank you so much for visiting (^•^) so glad that you could find bits of inspiration here! It's the reason why I love blogging. As for the Winter BYW button, I was a student in Holly's previous class...and the class before that too..haha. So that's where those buttons came from. I'm sure that Holly will make new buttons for Autumn 2010 when we're just about completed with class.
    xo, Merissa.
