valentiny treat

oh valentine's day. not my favorite holiday {although i don't dislike it} but let me tell you what i do like: making things, receiving some snailmail, and sharing the love.
 so this valentine's day my bestie and i are hosting a card exchange!
i'm excited.
This swap requires you to dust off your best grade-school-art-class moves and get down and dirty making something sweet for 5 new friends. Nothing big and fancy, just a little snail-mail love. In return, you will receive 5 cards from fellow swappers.

If you want in on the bestie love, please e-mail sarah: helloauburnst@gmail.com by January 23rd. Leave your home address and your blog address, and whether you're willing to send a card internationally.

We'll e-mail you back with the names of the people who will be receiving your love notes that week. Then you'll have till the 14th to get them to everyone!

We hope you'll join us!

  8. Cute idea! I have a little group of friends that does this each year and then we make extra to send to people that need some extra cheer! It's so wonderful to see the younger generations continue this things. And seriously. This post just made me depressed now because that sounded like I am about 90 - when in fact I am only 89 - ha! Have a happy day!
