I'm not going to tell you what will be inside each Full Moon Valentine bundle, because perhaps you want to receive one, in which case you should copy & paste the address for this post into an email, or that little "What's on your mind?" box on Facebook, or just leave your computer on the kitchen table, with a hand-drawn arrow-pierced heart pointing to this screen.
But if you want to give a Full Moon Valentine, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're only making 25 of them, and each is only $30 (a tremendous bargain, once you find out what's inside).
A hint: Each bundle will contain a contribution from each collaborator, plus some bonus treats. All of the proprietors featured are local makers, living in Troy, Albany, or Altamont, NY, and all of us create with an eye for the natural world, health, beauty and good design. You're gonna like it.
Here's some more info about each of the collaborators in our little lovely team: Underground Alchemy is a small scale herbal apothecary in the City of Albany. We
grow medicinal herbs and handcraft herbal products for sale through a
CSA, Farmer's Market and local stores. Tara
Quackenbush knew she wanted to pursue her interest in restoring the connection
between plants and people through collective participation for the
health of living systems while earning a master's degree in Environmental Science, or more specifically in the discipline of Environmental Communication. Drawn to the magic contained within medicinal herbs, she continues to share her love and appreciation
of these plant allies with others. Jen O’Connor is the founder and owner of the small business
The Little Ragamuffin where she sells her handcrafted soaps, housewares, and
organic heirloom seeds grown on the 5.5 acres of land known as The Kirk Estate, in
Altamont, NY. In addition, Jen is a
musician, songwriter, and producer in the band The Parlor.
Caroline Corrigan is an Albany-based freelance
graphic designer. Her work pulls inspiration from mid-century typography
and Scandinavian design, using patterns, bold hand-drawn elements,
and plenty of white space. Her old-fashioned snail mail greeting cards are
printed on a Risograph at Troy Cloth & Paper on Speckletone cover
stock from French Paper Company.
Valentine's Day is a month from today, and Flower Scout hasn't forgotten you.
(That's actually not true. FS did forget you, and her potential VDay responsibilities, and booked a vacation on the West Coast for the two weeks preceding February 14th. But that's okay, because she figured it out, and there is a plan in the works, a better plan than bouquets even, a plan that will blow your mind and your heart and the heart of the person you love, because:
FULL MOON VALENTINES
are coming at you
Stay tuned for more info in the next few days.
We're only making 25 of these, so you'll have to order quick!
