It's Valentine's Day, and some people may have sent a Valentine's Day wish or even a card via e-mail. But sometimes sending a greeting the old-fashioned way has special meaning.
In House Works, we find out how some people are sending Valentine wishes using a typewriter and paper.
Taryn is with Christopher James at Porridge Papers, and they are talking about sending a hand-written or typed note for Valentine's Day.
Christopher says a written or typed card is better than an e-mail. It's more personal, he says.
He's also talking about his event called "Love on the Run."
He says the person comes to the store, gets a Polaroid picture taken, and then he or she types a note. The note is put in a bottle, and placed in a environmentally friendly bag that will actually grow from seeds embedded in the paper.
Then the folks at Porridge Papers take the Valentines and deliver them on February 14th.
Taryn is typing a note now for Jon and her kids, and is enjoying using a typewriter, that no one uses anymore.
Christopher says there is charm in this. It's an 80-year-old typewriter, and if you don't spell a word correctly, it's OK.
It will be a Valentine that your special someone won't soon forget.
