When one door closes.

Who knew...two years ago, a door would close in my life and I would lose my job. 

Who knew...8 months later, I would started a blog called While Wearing Heels and that in the process, I would discover this creative and artistic side of myself I never knew existed.

Who knew...Mary Janes Farm would discover, on pinterest, the United States Quilt I made.


Who knew...they would then ask if it could be featured in their January/February issue.


Who knew...that the philosophy I have lived by since that unforeseen door closed, the philosophy that saved me would become an inspiring quote in a magazine.


Who knew?   Not me.


It just goes to show, when one door closes it doesn't mean your story ends, it just means you have to figure out what your next chapter will be.

There is no telling where life will take you.

  22. Amy, when I first saw the picture of that quilt, I knew you were destined for great things! That is the most amazing quilt I have ever seen, and I do not expect to ever see one that is more beautiful. It wows me every time I think about it. And, I do think about it!! It is beyond my comprehension that anyone could create that. Congrats on being recognized by the publishing world!
    And a very, very Happy Birthday!! May your life always be filled with love, laughter and all things good and sweet.
    Hugs and blessings

  34. WOW!! Amazing story! I just saw this below today's post (Grace's big girl room, which BTW I am in love with) and the title caught my eye. You have talent lady. Keep creating!!!
    It is truly amazing to me when doors are closed to later see the ones that are opened for us. Many doors were closed for us at this time last year. We are slowly finding some that are open. I get anxious when they truly open. And it scares me to grab that door knob. Have a great Tuesday!
