I've been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to announce our second annual Valentine Card Swap. The 2010 V-Day Swap was such a hit, that I've been looking forward to this for months - not to mention, I'm still riding the high of having my mailbox stuffed full of Christmas cards and other holiday goodness. I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to say au revoir to lovely and creative correspondence - keep the cards coming, is my motto!
---- SWAP GUIDELINES ----
+ If you'd like to participate, please leave a comment and email carina(at)crowandcanary(dot)com, by Tuesday, January 25th at midnight PST:
Please include the following information -
- mailing address
- email address
- blog/website (not required)
- willing to swap with international partners?
+ You'll be notified of your swap partners on Monday, February 1st via email - depending on the turnout, you may have as many as four partners.
+ Cards should be mailed no later than Monday, February 7th.
+ I would love to see a focus on sending handmade paper goods, but don't want to exclude any non-crafty types. I'll simply say, I'm in the business of supporting and spreading the word about amazing indie designers. So, if you have the choice between a Hallmark card or a card from your local letterpress printer I humbly encourage you to choose the latter! If you need help finding great shops near you, that sell cards from talented independent designers - please feel free to email me. There's always Etsy too!
+ The idea of the swap is to connect with people, so please be sure to write a little 'hello', favorite quote/recipe, or whatever else strikes your fancy. The intention is not to send blank cards for later use, but for recipients to enjoy now.
+ Swap is open to residents of all countries!
+ If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me directly at carina(at)crowandcanary(dot)com
