Herb Drying

I decided to dry some mint and strawberry leaves from the garden. I heard that strawberry leaves are good for acne but don't know a recipe using it. As for the mint, it makes a great tea and is in a book I just bought describing herbs and their uses. Below are pictures of the herbs drying.

Is it really that easy? I've been trying but they always end up "crumbling to dust".

Well what I did was take my fresh herbs, tie a string around the stems, and hang them upside-down in a room. How did you try drying yours? I don't know much yet about the process of drying. I heard that oven-drying for 20 minutes isn't too bad if you need them right away. I wish you luck!
