Earlier this month, Etsy.com HQ sent out a call for members and friends to contribute handmade or vintage Valentine greeting cards to be distributed to Citymeals-on-Wheels clients on Valentine’s Day. What fun it would be, I thought, to invite friends to join me on Saturday night for dinner and crafting… and it was!

Elaine, Elle, Kat, Holly, and Janet came over to my place last weekend. I served Penne Alla Vodka and my favorite salad. After dinner and some wine, we spread out ourselves and our craft supplies on the living room floor to start creating. There was some trepidation at first, but once we began putting things together, inspiration took hold. Listening to our favorite tunes from the 80s helped, too! In the end, we had 18 Valentine’s cards to contribute to Etsy’s cause! I would have been happy if we had 1 or 2 cards per person, so I’m bowled over by everyone’s efforts. Links and results follow:
