Facebook Fan Page!

Today we launch our Facebook Fan Page! This will not replace the Facebook Group, it’s just that Facebook actually prevents me from sending out updates now due to our size (5000+). I have planned a bunch of projects and other fun things and they’ll all be more successful if I can quickly update all of you about them. So join the Fan Page if you want to show your support for the site and especially if you want to be involved in any of our upcoming projects or even help plan some of them.

booooooom facebook fan page

The Facebook Group will continue to be the place to promote yourself and post links to things you think will inspire others!

Thank you to all of you who submitted designs to Erin (designformankind) and to the hundreds of you who submitted encouraging words during the first part of the project!

The postcards are all beautifully printed, gloss finish, and come in packs of 5 – each individually sealed and then shipped in a stiff cardboard package so they won’t be all bent when you get them.
