I haven't felt like crocheting or knitting lately. But I have been feeling "crafty", lately. I don't know what set it off. I think it was a combination of not having any money, and remembering a box I made ss a gift for my Grandma (back when we didn't have any money at all). It was heart shaped. (I don't have one pictured here, but I did start one. I started- and finished- these other things first, though.)  These little hearts are for little goodies; stickers, a candy or two.   This idea was in "The Tightwad Gazette" by Amy Dacyczyn.. I don't remember if it was one, two or three.   I found a video of an interview someone had with her, online the other night. I always wondered what she looked like. Kind of neat.

And this is a paper heart I weaved. Also from "The Tightwad Gazette". I just wanted to make one. The color is way off. It's hot pink and purple.    Maybe someday I will get a decent camera. AND figure out how to use it. lol...  Here is a similar pattern to make your own heart: She calls it a Swedish Heart..   :)

When I was in elementary school, back in the chariot days, we mad things similar to the Swedish Hearts that we gave to people on May day as May Baskets. It was fun . . we even made the flowers to put inside them.
