    These are adorable! So much nicer than the usual ‘squareish’ RSS icons. But, I’m with Jas up there … trying to figure out how to upload ’em and make ’em active links on my WP site. Any techie helpers out there?

      LOVE these and will ba adding them my website, but was wondering if you had doen a “You Tube” one? Also Cindy & Jaz easiest way to add them a WP theme is DL the zip file for the theme and locate in there where your icons are and simply replace them in the zip file with these, remove the theme using your admin page, then reupload (is that a word?) the zip file direct from your comp and VOILA!! Heart shaped icons!! (dont worry all your formatting will remain when you remove then reapply your theme, the only thing that will change is your artwork) You can use this technique to change ANY of the artwork in your theme, just triple check your pictures are the same size!!
