    Hey Dana

    It’s Ella again I a m terribly sorry to interrupt what you are doing at the moment but I am not a very good techno person so I was just emailing you to ask where the Danish heart templates may be. If you are able to, can you please send me an email as soon as possible as I am trying to make them for my Aunty for her Christmas tree this year.

    Thank you for your time.
    Kind regards Ella Doland
    Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

    When you said you could make garland out of them, all I could think was what a cute advent calendar it would make. You could put a small trinket, bible verse, candy, anything that works for each family! Thanks for the tutorial!

    Dana,
    I love your work and your videos are inspiring. I have been looking for a tree just like you show holdingbthese little heart buckets.

    Please so share where you got it. I would just absolutely love to have one in our family.

    Best

      Thanks Zena! I got the tree at a store called Home Goods. It was kind of a random find, and they only one…but I bet there are stores out there that carry them. Maybe even check amazon? “Wooden tree”?? Not sure exactly what to search for. But that’s where I’d start.
