I have been building up quite a collection of photo props and wanted to share some with you! I am very lucky to have customers who give me challenges and opportunities to make adorable outfits and props! I love making them, and I love seeing them in action!

I recently laid down a new path in my back yard, and I wanted to put some stepping stones down on the path that led to the play area because my children lovevto play barefoot, and the gravel path hurts without shoes! I didn’t want to have just plain stepping stones, but I also didn’t want to pay a ton of money, so I turned to Pinterest! I found this really cool idea in which you place a doily on top if the stepping stone and then spray paint. Well I couldn’t find any doilies, and I got impatient, so I came up with my own idea. I found this rad little metal sun/moon decoration and some rubber flower coasters from the Dollar Tree. I taped the gap in the sun and cut out some spots on the flowers. Then I placed them on the stepping stones and painted! I think I still like the doily idea better, but these will do for now. The best thing about painting is I can always redo it! For about $20 I got some pretty unique stepping stones, which I’m pretty stoked about
A few of my photographer friends have mentioned how it can be difficult to keep babies happy during a photo shoot. I’m hoping this photo buddy will make it a little easier!

I started with this free pattern for the circle. I love how she uses elastic in it so it stretches!

Attach the pupils to the white circles then sew them onto the top of the red circle. Sew on the nose. I sewed the face onto the seam so it would cover it up

About a year ago my husband came home with a new dining table for me. I was so happy because I had been wanting one for awhile. The only thing was, now I needed new chairs. So I’ve been looking, on and off for awhile, at thrift stores and garage sales and last week I found some! Only 2 though but hey, it’s a start! Not to mention I only paid $20 for them! I knew I was going to refinish them, but wasn’t sure how. I have been wanting to add more color to my home, but it scares me. I’m a very neutral kind of gal. But I took a leap and painted them yellow! I stained the seats brown so it will tie in with the table. The color is growing on me and I’m kind of proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone. I’m thinking I’m going to make the other 2 chairs (when I find them) blue. With how long it took me just to get these chairs, I’d say I have awhile to think about it!
