I'm sure you've all seen these on Design*Sponge already but I just had to post because they are done in collaboration with my dear friend Shanna Murray. Shanna and the also amazing, Betsy Dunlap collaborate at their shop hello handmade and have come up with yet another beautiful piece for all those romantics out there. For their second year, those clever gals are offering handwritten valentines customized by you and writen and illustrated by shanna and betsy.

This year they have taken a cue from Jane Austen, and adding their own modern twist! The valentines are elaborately folded in the regency style of Austen's time, then sealed with black and white striped washi tape and a wax seal.

Each valentine features Shanna's illustrated swallows-which have been off - set printed and then watercolored by hand in persimmon and a gorgeously subtle silver - as well as a personalized, customizable note penned with jet-black sumi ink in Betsy's uniquely romantic calligraphy.

Perhaps you have a million lovey-dovey sentiments racing through your mind, but your chicken-scratch handwriting doesn't exactly do them justice? If this is your particular problem, this keepsake is the answer to your valentine prayers! Don't have a true love this February? Order one for yourself, and we'll compose a little love note just for you!

**Best part is that the girls are are happy to be donating 10% of each sale to American Red Cross relief for Haiti.

Get em while they are hot because they will only be offering these for a short time, from January 19th until February 5th All valentines will be shipped out on February 8th to arrive in time for Valentines Day.  you did it again girls!!!
