Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

2013 had some memorable moments...

While Wearing Heels was featured in a magazine.

 

Last year, I made a promise to myself to get in front of the camera more.  There are so many pictures of Grace but there were so few of me.  For Grace's sake, I decided it was time to stop being so self conscious and to start stepping in front of the camera.  As a result, I was able to capture some beautiful moments, including what has become my favorite self portrait from last year. 


My sweet little girl turned 5.  FIVE!  We threw her a bunny themed birthday party that we invited her entire preschool class to...and we all survived.


The While Wearing Heels Etsy shop expanded to include more of the woodaholic's barn wood creations.


And, of course, there were crafts that were made...many, many crafts.

1. Architectural Display Pieces Tutorial
2. Natural Log Slices Coaster Tutorial
3. Crafting With Kids
4. Felt Gnome Finger Puppet Tutorial
5. Embroidered USA Quilt
6. Fabric Corsage Tutorial
7. Embroidered Watercolor Mason Jar Tutorial
8. Souvenir Postcard Artwork
9. Make A Wish Dandelion Embroidery Tutorial and Pattern

Thanks for being around this past year. 

Happy New Year!
