Homemade Paper Heart Snowflakes

I was looking at the snowflakes that I had cut out of paper and hung in the window thinking I should put something Valentine-ish up instead, but I liked the snowflakes. So I decided to try and make heart snowflakes. Doing the same basic thing as with the snowflakes, just folding and cutting. I am sure I am not the first person in the world to try this, but I am happy with how they turned out. I got more intricate as I went. It was pretty fun.

Tie Dye Booties

A friend of mine asked me to make some tie dye booties.

Well...this is how it happened. We were having a service auction at church and were asked to donate things or services to put in the auction. One of the items I put in was a pair of custom crocheted baby booties. A friend of mine bought it. She said she wasn't planning on having any more babies, but wanted me to make some for her sister, who also isn't having a baby. At least any time soon. And she wanted them to be tie dye. Get all that?

Anyways, here is how they turned out. I'm actually wondering why I don't make more brightly colored booties. They are so cute and bright! What do you think?
