Expressing your feelings on a Valentine can cause some anxiety. The decision to go cheeky or sappy can prove difficult especially in the early stages of a relationship. Now I won't presume to tell you which type of Valentine is best, this isn't a relationship column after all. But I can let you in on an Etsy shop that carries both.
Alisson Burda, owner of the Etsy store Artsy Fartsy, designs handmade mixed media artwork that she uses on a variety of mediums including cards, prints, and tote bags. Vintage photographs are used in each piece, creating a quirky and lighthearted feel.
Burda has several Valentine's Day greeting cards that are definitely not your average fare. Their messages range from a card expressing feelings of romance over the smell of garlic to more sentimental expressions of love. My favorite card falls among the latter, declaring "As constant as the stars above, know that you are loved." Simple and sweet or funny and silly, Artsy Fartsy has the Valentine for you.
If you would like to get your hands on an Artsy Fartsy gift right away, Burda also sells her products at the following Madison locations: Pick More Daisies, , and
