POSTCARD KEEPSAKE ::: While Wearing Heels

Whether your summer travel plans involve a trip across country or a night out in the city, be sure to buy a stack of postcards.

And, while you fill out postcards to your family and friends, why not write one to yourself as well.  Write out the highlights from your trip, the things that made you laugh.  Include the moments you want to capture and remember.

Put a stamp on your postcard and drop it in the mail.  Until we meet again, bon voyage postcard.

Your ‘back to normal life’ self {the one suffering from post vacation blues}, will appreciate getting something in the
mail other than the bills from your latest adventure…

About Amy: Amy, from While Wearing Heels, suffers from a severe form of Crafter Attention Deficit Disorder SO does her blog. She finds herself 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). She likes to share things she thinks are interesting or helpful and hopes to get that across with a few laughs thrown in. Join the good times and ideas with Amy on Pinterest or Facebook.

HOW TO MAKE A PALLET BED ::: The Space Between

Hello there! Right now you are probably in the full swing of summer, hopefully it is going superbly. It was right around 3 years ago now that my husband and I chose to move to a land of eternal summer, Curacao, with sun shiny days and constant coastal breezes. And, we recently made a pallet bed for our rooftop patio so we can enjoy the weather day and night. This project would be perfect for any patio, deck or outdoor retreat you would like to create in your own space. Find out all of the details right here
