Be Our Valentines

Posted on February 03, 2015 by Robbi Behr

Our press has been loaded with red ink for the past few days. And for once, its purpose was not to correct my many mistakes.

No, this was Valentine’s red. It is the season of love, and so we decided to make some new cards and Anonygrams.

Here is the disk, ready to print.

And here is our Valentine. A next an a bird, a culminating twig and a stream of tiny hearts. You get the picture.

The inside says “Be my Valentine.” We have plenty, should you wish to send one to that special person who holds the piece to your puzzle.

And here is our Valentine-themed Anonygram. We thought about designs professing true love or ardent desire but wondered if it might be a bit too creepy to receive such a sentiment anonymously. And so we staged a play between a fruit fly an a banana, who enact the act of love on your behalf.

An awkward metaphor? Perhaps? But you are a visionary. Your secret feelings now have a fitting outlet. You will carpe that diem, my friend.

For the person who dances to their own beat. For the one who isn’t afraid to be themselves even when the rest of the flock is sticking to the script, we give you the duckling of a different color.

And then for the person whose very being emanates the best in life, who soldiers on unrecognized, who simply needs a splash of recognition.

What’s better than a cupcake that you get to enjoy and over again each day? (Glass of cold, creamy milk not included.)

And, finally, a dancing cow, because nothing can express so well the way that special someone makes you feel than a dancing cow with a top hat and a cane.

And yes, that cow is purple. And yes, that is no accident, given the surprising (yet explicable) number of people with an affinity of purple cows who read this blog.

The printing is done and the stacks of envelopes await your orders. So have at it. Spread a little love. Or joy.

Or just plan like.
