flat valentines from stephanie fizer
i can’t say i have any fond memories of a specific valentine’s day. no loverly surprises, no over-the-top gifts, no declarations of undying affection.
but i do have fond memories of boxes of school valentines. there’s something about the way they slosh about in the package. small, flat, neatly cut. so much promise… always ruined by my too-quick, sloppy handwriting. super heroes, cartoon characters, puppies, disney princesses, nothing too original – but then, who puts a lot of thought into a card they’re slapping their name on and depositing in 28 classmates’ obligatory mailboxes.
oh wait, these fabulous indie designers put a lot of thought into it! you may not get the same slosh-in-a-box satisfaction that i got from my late 80s valentines – but you will get the satisfaction of having the coolest kid in school.
by the way, these aren’t just for adults. i’m totally getting in touch with the child in me and sending grade school valentines to friends & family!
