Scrappy Heart Tags
I'm quite pleased with how these turned out.
It was a project that just sort of came together little by little.
I had an old shoe box full of vintage fabric scraps that I wanted to do something with. I used some pinking shears to cut out some heart shapes not knowing exactly what I'd do with them. I eventually glued them onto some gift tags I had on hand. At this point they looked a little blah and I ended up loosing interest and I put them away for a while. About a month ago I came really close to throwing them away when I was organizing my craft closet but then decided to keep them just in case I thought of something to to with them.
They stayed tucked away until a few days ago when I ran into them again. I brought them out and used a small hole punch to make some holes and added a pretty crochet border on the end.
Wallah! That's all it needed.
I'm so glad I didn't give up on them and toss them in the trash.
I rather like how they turned out.
They're a little charming in a vintage, scrappy kind of way.
Speaking of hearts,
I have a new favorite tv series.
I am always late finding out about these things because we don't have cable. We only get about five local channels with our antenna and the Hallmark channel isn't one of those. I wish! I happened to learn about this show while at a friends house. A commercial for it came on and I was intrigued. I did an internet search for it and soon learned that it is a Janette Oke book that became a Hallmark movie, that turned into a Hallmark series. I ordered the movie from Amazon and with a little more digging on the internet I found the series episodes on youtube. I've watched up to episode four.
I love these type of shows. My whole family does. We have the whole series of Love Comes Softly on dvd. We also have Little House on the Prairie, The Waltons, Andy Griffith and a lot of other old timey family friendly shows. That's the kind of entertainment I enjoy.
Have you seen When Calls the Heart?
If you haven't, try it.
I know you'll love it.
