Celebrating Snow Days with DIY Photo Cards

Our first instinct may be to stay inside, bundled up by the fireplace at the first sight of snow — but what fun is that? Here in the Bay Area, we’re experiencing quite the Pacific rain storm, which means others elsewhere are enjoying snowfall in a winter wonderland. Our suggestion: ignore those basic instincts to stay bundled indoors, grab your kids, and have fun in the snow! After all, the kids are probably restless from being cooped up in the house.

As greater motivation, you can turn your snow adventure into a fun do-it-yourself art project. The only materials you need are: a camera, your family, and snow. Take action shot photos of the kids in the snow, throwing snowballs, building a snowman, or making snow angels. Then, let them choose which shots they like best and upload them onto Cardstore’s Blank Photo Cards to create a festive winter greeting. This is a fun gift to send friends and family, especially to those for whom ‘snow days’ are a foreign concept!

Free Workshop: How to Write a Perfect Love Letter


Just in time for Valentine’s Day, learn how to create a custom-designed, one-of-a-kind gift for the person (or people) you love most. We’re teaming up with the lovely ladies of the Love Letter Squad once again for a free “How to Write a Perfect Love Letter Workshop” in downtown San Francisco on Thursday evening, January 28.

While a love letter can be romantic, it can also be an expression of gratitude and appreciation to a parent, child, friend, teacher, doctor, public figure — even someone in your life in need of an apology or forgiveness.

Janet Gallin and Tresa Eyres, hosts of San Francisco’s inspiring Love Letters Live radio show, will show you how to capture the essence of the people who have touched your life, identify what you feel about them, clarify your message, and express it in your own unique voice. Timed for Valentine’s Day, you’ll leave with the start of a unique “work of heart” for someone you love.

Attendance is limited- so sign up today! Here are the details:

When: January 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Horn Group Office
612 Howard St. Suite 100
San Francisco, CA 94105

Admission is free. Attendance is limited to 35 participants.
