Idea: Spread the Love With a Valentine Swap

Idea: Spread the Love With a Valentine Swap

Looking for a unique way to celebrate Valentine's Day?  Spread the love by hosting a Valentine Swap!  

This is the second year Carina Murray, the creative lady and voice behind the blog Crow and Canary, has hosted such an event.  It started as a way to encourage cheerful correspondence and support during a holiday many people dread.  The payoff, a mailbox stuffed full of handmade Valentines, is just the icing on the cake!  If you'd like to join in on the fun, you better hurry!  Today is the last day to sign up for the Crow and Canary swap.

It's not too late to spread the love, though!  Consider adapting a similar event to your local community or neighborhood - or gather a group of friends for a day or evening of Valentine crafting.  Send them to unsuspecting people, Valentine bomb random mailboxes, or hand them out to your office mates.  The possibilities, and good karma, are endless!
