I have a nice collection of vintage valentines and I've been busily scanning them to use in some of my craft projects. I think I'll make some tags and try and sell a few on my other Etsy site, Etsyshop2, "Just a Little Something". I remember in grade school how excited we were to get valentines from our friends. The teachers always decorated the classrooms so nicely and we had a large box covered in hearts that we would put all our valentines in until it was time to pass them out. Just like going to the post office : )
I don't know if they do anything like that now, but I suspect some teachers make a special celebration of it. We need all the positives in our lives that we can get nowadays.
