Sharing the Love
I've been in both places in my life. Today is one of those days that is pressure-filled for a lot of people! I for one think there should be a different spin on Valentine's Day - what if we made it less about romance and more about telling our friends and family how much we love them? Simple as that.
I have to thank my ephemera buddy Frank Defrietas for this marvelous "Your Ideal Love Mate" postcard from 1941. Frank had a bunch that he was giving away (all different!) and I was one of the lucky people who got in on the deal early enough to snag one of these beauts! I don't know if this gentleman on the front is my type - I prefer less greasy hair, personally. But I will say that the sentiment is pretty accurate when describing my husband Brian! :D
Now, onto sharing the love! Today I want to spotlight a few of my favorite places that are sharing the love with you today:
First of all, don't forget that you have until 4 p.m. CST today to sign up for the Manto Fev GC giveaway! I'll be drawing the name from the entrants and one lucky winner will receive a $15 gift certificate toward anything in the store (and there is a LOT!)! Sign up if you haven't done so already!
Right now our good friends at Silver Crow Creations are offering 30% OFF through February 16! :D When you check out enter the code LOVE and you'll get 30% off your merchandise total - how cool is that??
The lovely Trina at Paper Flea Market is also offering 14% OFF your purchase TODAY ONLY! She just listed a whole bunch of new items - check it out! :D
Oh, and if I may toot my own horn for a minute, I'm offering 20% off everything in my Etsy shop, Snizzers & Gwoo, TODAY ONLY!
So there you have it. So many great deals await you today! It's our way of saying we appreciate you so much! Now go out there and spread some goodwill of your own today - even if it's just smiling at your fellow humans. I'm always fascinated by how a genuine smile can totally make someone's day. It can, you know - try it and see! Happy Valentine's Day!
