We watched a couple of childhood sweethearts get married this weekend. At the reception, we were seated with the pastor who married them. When the groom's mother came by, he made a point of telling her that her son was "present" for the marriage and that his bride was too. This young man, who had begun his courtship by riding his bike over to his future bride's home at the age of 15, had committed himself to loving her at an early age. Now, both he and she were following through with the promise. They were expressing their true love by making serious vows to each other. The kiss at the end was a three kleenex tear jerker. Sweethearts, God bless you.
I personally love making and sending Valentines. In fact, I get pretty sappy about Valentines and have a small collection of antique pieces which is nothing compared to the 10,000 pieces Nancy Rosin, President of the Valentine Collector's Society has. Her video, hosted on The History Chanel is wonderful.
So, get out your own scissors, glue, lace and glitter and start spreading some love around. If you need a little vintage inspiration, I scanned a few 1930's novelty cards that move, slide or fold out. I converted them to the proper size for mailing and designed an envelope template.
One order prints as many copies of the three included designs as you want to make. They are available by clicking the Buy Now button on the right, or by going to my Etsy Shop. Have Fun.
