Time to Share Some Love

Happy Monday! I'm pretty sure most of you know about ETSY, the wonderful on-line marketplace of all things handmade. Well, I found out that they have this sweet Valentine tradition called:

They've joined hands with Citymeals-on-Wheels to provide nutritious meals, handmade greeting cards and companionship to the elderly in New York City. Isn't that TADA! especially in the brutal winter the East Coast is currently experiencing?

This is where we crafters come in! ETSY needs us to make the Valentine cards. You'll find all the details right here.

I've wasted no time and made a bunch of cards in true blah to TADA! fashion:

These are made from paper remnants
{scrap book paper, gift wrap & magazine pages}

Left over felt turned into miniature pillows

Crafted from felt scraps & string

Cards that double as bookmarks

Little greeters made from cut-out doilies

I hope these have inspired you to make your own Valentine cards for ETSY's Special Delivery Project. You'll never know how you can cheer up so many people with your handmade cards! Truly, these are a gift from the hands and heart. Don't forget, deadline is on February 9, 2011.
