Valentine’s Day has always been, in my opinion, a false holiday. The exception being, of course, elementary school days where we all had the opportunity to decorate and individualize our own paper bag Valentine “mailboxes,” which would receive personalized Valentine letters that instantly produced smiles (especially the Snoopy ones). Since then, though… you could say I’m not a fan.
But Valentine’s Day is primarily about the celebration of love, right? So… that’s my focus. And, this Valentine’s Day, I’ve decided to glorify my one true love: lettering. Specifically, the lettering of Ms. Jessica Hische, whom I’ve just discovered thanks to the Uppercase blog, which is another love of mine.
Each of the following images are taken from Jessica’s blog:

I couldn’t choose from among all of the ridiculously awesome shops I’ve encountered in the past week, so… for this week’s installment of Wordshop Wednesday, I’d like to offer a collage of Etsy wonders. I hope that, like me, you’ll find them equally infatuation-worthy.
