Valentine Card Swap
I doubt many of you are thinking about Valentines Day already, but I must admit, I've been thinking about it since November. Why, you ask? Well, because it's nearing the annual handmade valentine card swap that I host each year over at MaryJanes Farm Connection, the other place I hang out! If your not familiar with Mary Jane, well, she is just the neatest lady living! She has made it ok to be a farmgirl again, and it's become classy too! Check out her website soon, it's listed under wonderful websites to the right. I've been a member for 4 years now, the forums are full of information covering everything. Every year we make old fashioned valentine cards and swap with all who have signed up. This year, I'm inviting you to join in too. Now, don't be shy, the girls will welcome you with aprons on....and you can make your valentines any way your heart desires, there really is no right or wrong way, as long as you have fun doing it and in return your mailbox will be flooded in pink pretties come Feb. and let me tell you, the talent out there is amazing! I've been anxious to start making mine since before Christmas. So, if you'd like to join us in this fun swap, just email me your name and mailing info. and I'll add you to the list, which will go out next week so you will have plenty of time to start making those cards. We've only gotten 10 so far but hope to get some more, we love to see them waiting for us in the mailbox on a snowy February day. I'll also be giving away one of my custom clipboards(some will be added to my Etsy shop soon too) all decked out for Valentines day and to aid you in your card making. So, feel like a kid again, and craft up some valentine cards with us, but beware, it's addicting!
