HAS WINTER GOT ITS FRIGID FINGERS AROUND YOUR THROAT... uh hem, Uh I mean YOUR THOUGHTS CAUSING YOU TO WONDER IF YOU WILL EVER FEEL THE WARM SENSATION OF THE HOT SUN BURNING THE FLESH FROM YOUR FACE?
Well then -- it MUST BE TIME ONCE AGAIN FOR SOME BLOODY VAMPIRE VALENTINES - 2023! Or if celebrating LUPERCALIA is more your style. (Meaning - Lupercalis "pertaining to Lupercus," whose name derives from lupus "wolf" and per Wikipedia - Lupercalia was an ancient, possibly pre-Romanpastoral annual festival, observed in the city of Rome from the 13th to the 15th of February to avert evil spirits and purify the city, releasing health and fertility.
Take a bite out of your winter doldrums, after holiday blues - share some love - just in time for Valentine's Day!
It's fun - It's easy - a great way to warm up your iced over winter heart and shine a little light into the darkness!
Here is how it works:
Post in this thread if you wish to exchange greetings with other Halloween Forum members, and indicate if you have a mailing limit for the number of greetings you wish to send out and where you're willing to mail to... USA, USA & Canada, Everywhere and Anywhere. (It can be a letter, greeting card, postcard or note - handmade or store bought. We love them all!) - Then exchange addresses via private message with others who wish to exchange valentines, have fun!
Aiming for a mailing deadline of February 8th to get the Valentines to their intended in time for Valentine's Day. Here's wishing the next few weeks of winter will be a little bit warmer thanks to sharing the love with Vampy or Wolfie Valentines!
A Reminder - Many of us love to add a little SWAG in our cards please make sure not only the weight BUT the size of your mailing is within the USPS single stamp limit. The USPS is getting more strict with its limits...
Also - Life happens if something should keep you from sending out your greetings please let those you have said you'll be exchanging with know. Nothing feeds the darkness more than pondering the what ifs...
Mine went out yesterday. I was hoping to have them out much sooner than that but just couldn't seem to get them done. The postal clerk assured me one stamp was all I needed despite the cards having a little bulk so I'm hoping she is right. Also hoping they get there for Tuesday! I received some cards that I plan to open and post about later.
I received 2 more last week. Thank you Lauralouthat'swho for the pretty sliced heart with retro witch card. Love the wolf stickers. And thank you Spookybella for the Wednesday Adams card. She's adorable!
I am still waiting on cards from Loki and Hostesswithemostess which is kind of funny because they are closer to me than most. Hopefully I'll get them soon. It does make it more exciting going to get my mail.
