Hey people! Happy February! You know what that means - it's almost time for Valentine's Day. I know a lot of people hate this holiday, but having a little shop that I design and make products for has put a totally different spin on things for me this time around!

I think that people resent this holiday in some part because it is a big capitalist-y, corporate moneymaking machine, so I'm here to show you the collection I have created, and convince you to support me instead of THE MAN!

So, here's my little collection! Introducing: the Sentimental Hearts range! I've created a range of illustrated valentines that are smooshy and mooshy and often plant-related. I love valentines day - even if I never really do much, I just like all the decorations and stationery out there. I am also a big fan of the sentimental card (please, if you buy me a mean card I'll be upset - I need a hand written soliloquy on the inside about how much you love me) and so my range of illustrated valentines was born!

The range features two cute valentines cards, one referencing my love of the Cheese Plant, and the other a song that always makes me feel mushy - The You and Me Song (so old skool). I have also added a set of three prints which can be a proper gift, they are A4 and crisp and high quality, and will easily fit in an IKEA frame. They feature more mushy song lyrics, but of a more obscure variety: the Make You Happy Print, the Feel The Love Print and the Be Mine Print.

I also added in a sweet little 'congrats on your engagement' card because I mean, now is the time, more than ever, that you might need to pick up one of those! Everything is created in a Pink-and-Red colourscheme because it is one of my favourite combos and never was there a better time in the year to use it!

I did a collection last year but it was very last minute, and looking back at it now, I can't believe how much I have improved. The range is tiny at the moment, but I am planning to add to it, and will probably carry on the theme of 'sentimental hearts' beyond valentines cards, so if you want future updates, sign up to my mailing list. You can officially shop the Sentimental Hearts Collection here!

I am also pleased to share that I am now shipping out all orders in packaging as pretty as my prints! More info on my Shipping Info page!
