Valentine's Crafts 3 - More to Wire & Twine Hearts

Hi there! Its weekend again :)

I work full time in an office I have to travel to for almost 2 hours.
Yes, two hours one way. Lots of reading time :)
However, that means being exhausted most of the time :(
But I still can't give up crafting and this blog, which makes every weekend so precious.

OK, enough whinging - let's go to my plans for this weekend.
I'd like to complete 3 projects and here's the first one.
In fact, I just tried a couple of variations to my wire & twine hearts here. (I was sooo encouraged by your kind comments - thank you very much!)

(Boy, I really need to improve my photography skills! Sorry about this.)

For this one I used cotton cooking twine and a bamboo button - the same material I used for my 'Down-to-Earth Bag' (coming in my next post). So here's the result:

And here's one with raffia. I love the texture of this one but it does require a little more patience to connect the pieces of raffia. Here it is:

That's it for now, I'm off to finish my bag!

Love, DK


  1. So you're a weekender too - That's me, only my commute when I am traveling is about 12 hours. Live in CA and work in the Midwest. But when I'm home on the weekends - it garage time. Ha. Thanks for visiting my site.

  2. These are wonderful! I know what you mean about having a full work week... but for me: I just Gotta CREATE! {Thus, the name of my blog}. I'm so glad you shared these at the Kiss & Tell party over at my place. <3

  3. Adorable! Thanks for linking up at From Scratch Friday! Come back next week :)


  4. Love the twine, but then, I have a problem with time!
    I understand the weekend issue, if I want good pictures I have to race home from work (45 minutes if I'm lucky!) or try to get it done on the weekends.

  5. Those are so charming, DK. I really like the raffia one, the button gives it a little extra romance.

  6. I love it. Im on to one with wire and coir :)Visiting frm Sundays best
