Hello all.. I hope your new year is off to a great start.
I'm not gonna lie, my 2009 is off to a kinda crummy start...so what do you do when you're feeling down and out?
Make Valentines for strangers? That's what I did today. I got an email from Fred Flare saying they are seeking our love. Make your version of a Valentine (they even suggest a mix tape..I might have to throw that in, as well) to be sold online or in their new store and the proceeds will go to Elder Craftsmen, an organization that brings craft workshops to senior citizens in Nyc. How much fun would it be to volunteer with that?? I'll have to see if Chicago has something like this set up.. Anyway, they are to be postmarked by the 15th of January! Read all the details right here and be sure to spread the word. Be sure to show me photos when you have yours made!
