Guest Heart Thursday...remembering the love.

When I saw the meme for Guest Heart Thursday I immediately thought of the hearts I made for an altered book collaboration. It was so lovely to go back to some of my old posts see them again so I thought I would show a few here for the meme.

 At the time one of my art goals was to make some of my own beads. There are a few home made paper ones in the photo above but mostly they are salvaged from old necklaces and op shops. I made the ones below from a product similar to fimo. I was making balls but got bored and made hearts...I am glad I did!
 Some of these beads are still sitting unused in my bead box but pictured below is a heart that did get put to good use...
The heart was a perfect handmade, thrifty embellishment to add to the book page. Actually, as it turns out so did a lot of other hearts! Click this link to see them.

May your nest be blessed,


  1. Oooooooh, you're right - these are awesome heart beads! And you made them yourself? Wow - you're my HERO!!! I'm so glad you shared these hearts!

  2. Thank you so much for your enthusatic response! You really bought a smile to my face. Also congrats on being the first commentor on my new blog!

  3. These are absolutely beautiful! I love the colorfulness of your bead collection and your handmade hearts are exquisite.

    Happy Guest Heart Thursday! (grin)

  4. Thanks Beth, I enjoyed making them! I didn't realise how many hearts I had until I saw the Meme though!
