Ice Cold Hearts

The extreme cold weather continues.  Thanks to Lucy at Craftberry Bush, Grace and I busied ourselves making lovesicles. 

So, though I don't love the cold weather...I certainly do love making things with Grace, especially heart shaped things.


I'm not sure what Lucy used to color her heartcicles but I used food coloring mixed in water.


I let nature do her thing and freeze our heartcicles.

Once they were frozen, I quickly ran outside and decorated our yard with some love and heartcicles...


before my fingers froze, forcing me back inside.

When I did come back in, to warm up, I found someone had stolen my spot. 


I let her keep my spot...because, contrary to this post, I do not have an ice cold heart.


*Don't forget, there is still time to sign up for the Uncommon Goods giveaway where one lucky While Wearing Heels reader will win a $50 gift certificate.

  1. What a fun idea! :) Hope it starts to warm up soon. We just hit a record for January here in MD with the amount of days we've had in single digits. Not really a record I want to hold...lol.

  6. What a sweet baby!!!!
    Have you seen where kids use koolaid to paint the snow? I think they use the powder, I'm not sure how it works. I knew there had to be a less stainful way to make snow art. (Stainful is a word. It's just not in the dictionary yet.)

    1. It's a good thing Riley (the dog) looks so sweet because she is as naughty as they come. Her sweetness makes it easier to forgive. I have a feeling if I used kool aid to make snow art, the dog would have an ice cold snack :)

  12. Such a crafter at heart, even did one in the freezing cold! I love them though. What a nice surprise for people to see when they walk by your house. I bet it puts smiles on their faces and makes their day that much better. I know it'd pick me up!! And what a nice warm seat to come back to. What a cutie! Great pic!
