February 2016 Curator’s Note:

The theme for this month’s collection is (not surprisingly) “love”.

Of course the love theme was inspired by Valentine’s Day which suggests romantic love, but I wanted this collection to speak to more than just that.  I’ve included a “love card” that is a nod to Black History Month which also celebrated in February; a love card describing the necessity of love in general with whomever or whatever (“all I need to get by”), and a love card that speaks to the love of music, one of my first loves.

Once again, each card is infused with some old school hip hop flavor.  The hip hop/soul inspiration this month comes from Method Man and Mary (All I Need), the Notorious B.I.G. (Juicy), and Whodini. (One Love).

What I love about these cards is that they are not just “romantic love” cards — although they can be.  I kept the love theme fresh and light so that they could apply to a wide variety of love relationships, and can be appropriate for use all year long.

The cards read:
“LOVE”, inside reads “All I need to get by”
“one love, one love…” (blank inside)
“let the tape rock till the tape pops/Slow Jams (me+you) mixtape” (blank inside)

I hope you enjoy the nostalgia of these note cards and send some love this month.

Love write, people!
