Valentine’s Day is coming right up, and this year I wanted to do something new. Something that involved three of my favorite things: art, calligraphy, and candy! After noting my dilemma, artist Pam Ash came up with some lovely printables for me — and you! — that present the opportunity to indulge in art and calligraphy; plus you can eat some of the Valentine’s candy you bought as you make them (hey, why not?). When you hand the Valentine’s out to your recipients, they’ll be enchanted with the creativity and thoughtfulness behind the gift!
