Meet Amy from "While Wearing Heels"

You know that on Wednesdays I like to introduce you to some bloggers and blogs I admire.  If you don't already know my friend Amy from "While Wearing Heels" you are really missing some fun! 

 She has a great sense of humor and her blog is one that always makes me laugh, not to mention she has some awesome projects!  I asked her to share a few of them with you as well as a few words about herself:

I'm Amy, from While Wearing Heels, and because I suffer from a severe form of Crafter Attention Deficit Disorder SO does my poor blog.  I find myself doing a lot of tutorials.  What sort of a tutorial really depends on the week {crafts, hair, home decor, how to extract a bento box cup from your dog after she has eaten one}.  I like to share things I think are interesting or helpful and I hope to get that across with a few laughs thrown in. 

I think my favorite posts/projects always evolve and change.  One of my favorite tutorials that I shared when I first started blogging and had about 4 followers was A Rose Is A Rose, a tutorial for making a velvet rose.  I do not have a green thumb so this is as close as I'll ever get to making a beautiful rose :)

Another forgotten about post I love is: Reformed Halloween Grinch it's how I became a reformed Halloween Grinch.  Again, I am sure I had roughly 12 followers so it was sadly ignored.

I know most people think of me as a crafting tutorial blog but really I do try and interject some humor into my blog.  So, yes, I do provide tutorials but I also try and share posts like this:  If Only  in hopes of letting my readers know I do have a personality and that I can make fun of myself.

Now, I have a few things to say about Amy and her blog!  First, I'm really not too sure how we started communicating, but I think she was kind of interested in the fact that I own a pumpkin patch and live on a farm.  Now I found this kind of funny, because while Amy dresses like this:
On any given day, you will likely find me in bluejeans and a T-shirt, workin on my farm girl tan, sweating bullets and wishing I had fingernails!!!  Although Amy wears some snappy footwear is waterproof and has the fancy designer name of "Muck"!  But we have found some common ground; blogging, crafting and maintaining our sense of humor.  She just showed you some of her favorite posts, now I would like to show you a few from her blog that caught my eye!

This Timeless Clock Tutorial was one that I loved and may be the first time I saw her blog.  I mean, really, who wouldn't love this?  I'm on the lookout for a vintage-looking clock all the time now!

I really liked this panini sandwich recipe and I really want one right now!

When I read this post Mental Pictures from a Circus Party,
I seriously laughed until I almost cried, really, you should stop reading this and click on the above link and enjoy a laugh right now!

 AND.... I am so making this Punch box for my grandson's 5th birthday party!

I would love it if you would go over and check out Amy and While Wearing Heels.  I promise you won't regret it.  She'll make you smile!  Show her a little comment love and tell her hello from me!  And bonus....if you decide to follow her, you'll be sure to get some morning laughs with that first cup of coffee, not to mention some awesome project inspiration!

Amy, I am so glad to get to know you and I really appreciate you letting me feature you here and share you and your great blog with my readers!  Thank you!

  12. I met amy through the clock tutorial post too and it was friends at first cyber chat!!!! She is great and I have dibs on that polka dot dress she is wearing when she is finished with it!! I'm going to repurpose the fabric into something else - cause that's what I do - I create with fabric!

  13. Hi Danni! What a great post you wrote here about my dear friend Amy! You are right on the money about how she inspires with her tutes and makes us laugh at the funny moments in life! Amy has been one of my dearest friends whom I was fortunate enough to meet 'at the beginning' of my blog. I think it was when she left a sweet comment on my blog and I noticed she was a 'No reply blogger' so I went to her blog to let her know to change her profile settings....we became besties after that - our friendship just bloomed from that moment. She is so uplifting and upbeat, and just oozes empathy and encouragement! It looks like Amy has touched a lot of people in blogland, I am not surprised! It is so sweet of you Danni to share her with all of your readers! Have a great week and if you are sizzling in this heatwave - keep cool! Heather :)
