Best of 2013

2013 has been a great year for me and my family. It started early this year with us moving across the world from Okinawa, Japan back to the States to Fort Worth, Texas. Where we bought our first home back in January. Then our new blog “oh” Everything Handmade was Launched on June 14, 2013 and our Facebook page followed shortly after on June 17, 2013.

However, giving birth to the cutest boy named Bailey Shane on July 3rd was my highlight of 2013! 


April from smithyjewelry and Hanna from pearlsandscissors are our two DIY editors which joined our blog this year, both ladies have already contributed some stunning DIY projects so far.
