I love crafts and creating something new, pretty or useful. I started making hearts like these a couple of years ago, but with all the activities we had with our move and then getting settled here in Florida, I hadn't had the time to be creative in this arena for awhile. So, in October as life settled down and I had time to kill while waiting for the girls in ballet class I began making these again. I've made about two dozen so far and those I had done graced my Christmas tree this last Christmas.
