Have you ever asked yourself what it is about the shape of a heart that makes us melt or simply just smile?
I can't have enough hearts through out my home, they make me happy.
I think I am mostly parcial to the elongated hearts that you find when you look at primitives or grungy crafts. I love those.

But, for my website, I prefer to create heart sachets and fill them with dried lavender buds. Oh boy, do they ever smell so sweet and fresh.

I had so much fun creating these hearts. Some have beadwork and some have fringe. They make the perfect gift too and are ever so romantic.

The above blue, key to my heart has found it's way to another home, but the three sachets above the blue are for sale. I hope you have enjoyed my post today and come back soon. I love to share what I have been up too.

Since I have discovered the art of creating a Tussie Mussie, I have to admit, "I am in love with this craft." There are so many beautiful papers to choose from, and of course, playing with trims, ribbons, lace and bobbles....well, it's just fun!!
 These can be found on my website, along with many other styles and colors. The Halloween Tussie has been sold, but have a peek, you might find something you love.
If you enjoy working with paper, please give this craft a try, it's fun and it's easy too. Tussie Mussie's make a great gift for teachers, friends or keeping for yourself. Fill with small gifts or with sweets, what's not to love!?
