Valentine Exchange 2014
« on: December 31, 2013, 11:28:14 AM »
Guess what -- Valentine's Day is only 6 weeks away! I would like to get my Valentine's to everyone on time (unlike my holiday card!) so that means there are only 4 weeks to get prepared! We need to give people a little time to sign up and then time to address envelopes.

The deadline for signup is January 14, 2014.

If you would like to sign up for the Valentine exchange, please email me your full name and mailing address to [email protected].

Guidelines:

1. Although the cards do not have to be handmade, some kind of calligraphy should be used on either card or envelope.
2. A card will be sent to every member on the list (if a large group signs up, I will break the list down into smaller groups).
3. Valentine related theme.

Can't wait!!!!  ;D  :-*

I would love to do this but I'm afraid my skills aren't yet up to this! What a great idea!

All skill levels welcome!  ;D But I know it can be intimidating and scary to share so I understand!  :)

I just emailed out the Exchange list so if you do not receive an email from me, please let me know. Please check the list and make sure your address is correct.

I can't wait for this exchange! It's my favorite!  :-*

For some reasons I thought the exchange was something like "Secret Santa", where each of us will get ONE random address...but nope!
We get to write 10 cards! I am 10 times more excited now  ;)

 :o So sorry Michela! I hope that isn't too much! I will be more specific in my description next time!  :-[

It is quite delightful to receive so much beautiful mail but I know can be overwhelming to get them out there. Thus the reason for starting early, too. And it's great practice for those wanting it.  :)

Hi guys, best of luck with your valentines :) Just curious, what will be next "holiday" exchange in 2014? Maybe if I practice enough I can be ready to join in the fun :)

Hi Karen,
I don't know!  :D Anyone can start an exchange though. You just have to post and organize it. I'm sure we'll plan something in the spring. Maybe something not focused on a holiday but a theme. Open to suggestions, too!  :D

That would be great if you join in next time!  :D

Easter?? Do people send cards for Easter? Haha.

I was READY this time! I had all my cards made and ready. So when I got the list, I just had to do the envelopes (and write the cards) :D
