Good Morning Party Peeps! I know, it’s a bit early for me to be a bloggy mcbloggerson…but I have an exciting project I want to share with all of you! As I am such an uber mushy romantic, I obviously LOVE Valentine’s Day. And though I will definitely be spoiling the boy with lots of goodies and kisses, I think it’s time to start spreading the love. Maybe it’s all of the talk of change in the world, maybe I’m pumped about the New Year, maybe I just feel like giving out hugs and kisses…Whatever it is, I say: Let’s exchange Valentines, Party Peeps! I’m not talking an e-card or an e-mail…I’m talkin’ a good ol’ fashioned snail mail, made with love, bundle of loveyness! And better yet, received from a new unknown friend!
So, Party Peeps, here it is. I present to you, the scoop on the 2009 Crafty Cupid Valentine Exchange. PLEASE feel free to invite friends and spread the word…the more the merrier!
Step 1: Leave a comment to this blog saying you’re in. SIGNUP DEADLINE IS Thursday, Jan. 29, 2009.
Step 2: Send Cupid an email with your mailing address and a brief wishlist of things you like. Cupid’s email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 3: You will receive the address and wishlist of your randomly chosen Valentine in your email inbox on Friday, Jan. 30, 2009.
Step 4: You have exactly one week to mail your Valentine to your secret friend. Here are the guidelines for your Valentine…
- You can either craft something, or purchase something. Just make sure it’s cutesy and lovey and Valentiney!
- Spending Limit: $15
- Try to avoid chocolates or edibles. And really fragile things for that matter – Remember you will be mailing these things. If you are a master packer, however, knock yourself out 🙂
- Include a brief note revealing your identity to your Secret Valentine. Who are you? Where are you from?
- Be Creative! And Spread the Love!
Step 5: Mail your Valentine by Friday, Feb. 6, 2009. This will allow everyone to ship ground and still have it arrive in time for Lover’s Day. Most importantly: Ship via UPS, FedEx, etc…Any Shipper that will provide a TRACKING NUMBER. We don’t want our Valentine’s getting lost in the mail!
Step 6: Log on to my blog on Valentine’s Day (Sat., Feb. 14th, 2009) and we will share what we got! Feel free to post an image and who your secret valentine was.
Last but not least, follow through people! Please don’t sign up if you don’t think you have time, ability to mail a package, etc…Be honest! And Have Fun!!! Hopefully in a few short weeks we will all have cutesy lil’ valentines, sent with love, from a new friend! Good Luck, and Happy Valentining!
Spread the Love Wayne,
