Want to tell that special someone you care? I’ll send a handmade postcard to your crush, from a secret admirer.

Hi! I’m Joanne. Remember how fun it was to receive homemade Valentines in a shoebox covered with construction paper? Ever find one in the box from a secret admirer? In the spirit of that kind of simple, handmade fun I’ll make Valentine postcards and send them across the globe to those you secretly admire. 

Postcards will be postmarked Loveland, Ohio with no return address so they'll keep the object of your affection guessing. Each one-of-a-kind 4x6 inch postcard will read, “You give me butterflies. from, A Secret Admirer.”

If you have a special message you’d like me to write choose the Be Mine option. Tell me what you’d like to say. Maybe, “Let’s swim through the stars,” or “After 8 years I still get dizzy when I smell the back of your neck.” Or simply, “Say yes.” I’ll write it and mail it to your beloved. Just keep it around Twitter length so it fits comfortably on a postcard. The personalized postcard will be still be signed, “from, A Secret Admirer.”

Be Mine with a personalized message. Make it anything you want!

If your love is so boundless it won't fit on a 4x6 postcard choose the Big Love option. Your message will go on a 5x7 inch postcard and to make it extra special I'll add glitter. 

Big Love. Say it big, and with glitter!

Still not enough for your true love? How about a handmade 5x7 card, with a glittered anatomical heart on the outside, and your message and heart milagros on the inside. And I'll tuck it into an envelope filled with confetti. The supply is limited, so if you were thinking about giving someone a card with a glittered anatomical heart here is your chance.

Look at all that gliiter! With milagros inside! And confetti!

That’s it! I will produce as many postcards as requested during the next twenty five days then I’ll send them off.

The funding goal of $250 will enable me to purchase art supplies, paper, and postage. It will also cover the percentage that goes to Kickstarter and Amazon. All funds in excess of those costs will go back into the studio so I can produce fabulous art.

Remember, Kickstarter is all or nothing. If the funding goal isn’t met then this project doesn’t happen. No funding = no postcards = sad mailboxes and no mystery. Keep romance alive. I’ll play Cupid. Be a Secret Admirer!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I'd love to have these all mailed out by mid February. I’m already making the cards so the biggest hurdle will be getting them addressed and delivered to the post office. You can help make sure the cards are finished in a timely manner by quickly responding to the questionnaire you’ll receive at the close of this Kickstarter campaign. The sooner I have your information the sooner the apple of your eye will receive a postcard from A Secret Admirer!

FAQ

  • If you are already supporting this project please read update #7 "Time to start collecting messages and addresses." It explains where to send your information. You will also receive a survey at the end of the Secret Admirer campaign and can provide all required information then. Please respond quickly! I can't mail your postcard until I have that information so to be certain your sweetheart receives your note please fill out the survey as soon as you receive it, or better yet, send me names and messages now!
