Don’t live in or near Baltimore, London or Vancouver? Or just plain don’t like using the post office? No problem, we’ve got you covered!
Yes. It's amazing how quickly this can be forgotten. But, thankfully, with some nudging, it's easily remembered, too. ❤️🙌🏻And I'm looking into doing You Are So Very Beautiful drops in other cities too. Want to learn more?

If you’d prefer to keep your signs local vs. sending them to one of those cities (and that’s perfectly okay), you are welcome to drop them around your town, as long as they fit in a few parameters: the affirmation starts with “you are,” the hashtag #YASVB is on the back, and you share a photo, either on social media or with me to share.
If you’re going to drop them around your town, feel free to either do so yourself or to get some friends and family together to make signs- it’s quite a lot of fun, and in handmaking/stitching an affirmation, you, the maker, are getting a benefit as well. You are letting those words resonate in your soul, reminding you of just how wonderful/amazing/beautiful, etc. you really are.
As an example, in Baltimore, we’ll be meeting up and making some quick signs (I’m getting some 4” hoops, printing affirmations and fabric and then having them stitch with big needles so it takes them 20-30 minutes); going out and spreading them around the Fells Point neighborhood (and taking photographs!); then meeting back up for a celebratory drink.
You’re welcome to place them around your city whenever you see fit whether it’s Feb. 7th or not! I’m working on coordinating drops in other cities, too, which is taking some wrangling, but is so exciting! If you’d like to work on a drop with me, let me know!
Lastly, of course, I’m not the affirmation sign police and you can do them without those parameters as well, but if you’d like to be a part of the project, it would be great if you stayed within them so we can see what you’re up to!
