Valentine card haul 2023

February 16, 2023

I like receiving mail and it turns out I like sending mail as well. It’s one of the least expensive ways to brighten someone’s day, and you can be creative as you want.

I’m a member of the MetaFilter online community and a small group of people who enjoy sending and receiving cards set up monthly and holiday card swaps. I often write about the cards I make and send out as part of , but I wanted to feature the lovely cards I received in return.

Here’s my 2023 haul:

valentine cards spread out on a tabletop. they are all pretty and overwhelmingly red/pink

Some are store bought, some are handmade. Some had stickers enclosed, one had a hedgehog made out of foam hearts!

hedgehog? porcupine?

All were perfect in every way.

Ironically, WM and I don’t exchange cards. I texted him this though because I’m shmoopy like that.

a download from the NJ Devils website, it's a valentine featuring goalie Vitek Vanecek that says "just vanecek-ing if you'd be my valentine'

I hope your Valentines Day was exactly how you wanted it to be.
