I know its early but I thought maybe we could try to plan a Postcard Exchange for some unique February holidays since it would be kinda weird to send each other Valentines. lol You would need to sign up and PM me your address by 12/31/08. You would then just need to make your postcard and send it out to your person in time for them to recieve it for the holiday that you choose.

Here are the Bizarre, Unique and Special Days in February:

1st- National Freedom Day
2nd- Groundhog Day
2nd- Candlemas
3rd- The Day the Music Died (Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper died in the plane crash)
4th- Create a Vacuum Day
4th- Thank a Mailman day
5th- National Weatherman's Day
6th- Lame Duck Day
7th- Wave Your Fingers at Your Neighbor Day
7th- Send a Card to a Friend Day
8th- Boy Scout Day
8th- Kite Flying Day (in February????)
9th- Clean Out Your Computer Day
9th- Toothache Day
10th- Umbrella Day
11th- Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day
11th- Make a Friend Day
11th- White t-shirt Day (whhooohoooo)
12th- Abraham Lincoln's Bday
12th- Plum Pudding Day
13th- Blame Someone Else Day
13th- Get a Different Name Day
14th-Ferris Wheel Day
14th- National Organ Donor Day
15th- National Gum Drop Day
16th- Do a Grouch a Favor Day
16th- President's Day
17th- Random Act of Kindness Day
18th- National Battery Day
19th- National Chocolate Mint DAy (mmmmm)
20th- Cherry Pie Day
20th- Hoodie Hoo Day (????)
20th- Love Your Pet day
21st- Card Reading Day
22nd- Be Humble Day
22nd- Walking the Dog Day
22nd- International World Thinking Day
23rd- International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
23rd- Tennis Day
24th- National Tortilla Chip Day
25th- Pistol Patent Day

26th- Tell a Fairy Tale DAy
27th- Polar Bear Day

Pshew! That's a long list!

That sounds like fun - do we pick one to do, or how would that work?

After everyone signs up I'll assign you a person to send your postcard to. You get to pick any of the holidays in February to make your postcard for and send it out before that date.

Yes, you make them from fabric. Chele listed a good site for directions.

I found out what Hoodie Hoo Day is. Go figure!

Hoodie-Hoo-Day -- At high noon (local time) citizens are asked to go outdoors and yell "Hoodie-Hoo" to chase winter and make ready for spring, one month from now.

Can't believe February will be here before you know it!!!!
Do you have any sites with ideas for fabric postcards?
I would like to do this and will think on it, however I am feeling a bit overwhelmed right now with the holiday projects.

There will be plenty of time after Christmas to put a postcard together. I know how you feel about the holiday projects but then after Christmas when the winter blahs kick in, I thought this would be a fun project.

I'll look around for some sites. I know Chele has already posted one but I'll look for some others.

Go on, take the plunge!
