A Handmade Valentine's

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Remember last year when I revisited one of my adolescent hobbies? This year I decided to get on board with an official handmade Valentine's swap*. Hosted by Lyndsay Wells of The Stationary Place, the swap consists of exchanging cards with 4-5 other individuals across the globe. I love this idea. It's sort of like crafts and snail mail had a love child! To me, Valentine's Day isn't about romance. It's about celebrating those you care about. People far and near that mean something to you. Sure chocolates, flowers, and romantic dinners are nice, but as I get older I find that gifts of self are more meaningful than anything that fades. Throw in a little glitter and you've got it made. Here's hoping you find a little something special in your mailbox this February.
