14 days of love for Valentine's Day: Day 9 - order them personalized stationery to show you care

  I am dreaming of special,
thoughtful gifts to bestow upon my family
for Valentine's Day,
 and with February 14 
only a week away what's on my list?
I know I would relish a box of these pretty note cards 
when sitting at my desk to send a handwritten note.


 This Valentine's Day why not adorn your loved one with a box of these gems?
There are many stationery companies,
but what I like about William Arthur is the sublime quality,
yet they are easy to order online. 
With a simple click of my computer keys,
I can order personalized stationery, photo cards, boxed stationery and note cards
and they will be delivered to my door in 3-5 business days. 
We all enjoy chocolate and flowers on Valentine's Day,
and that's a given, but what piques my interest
is anything personal.

How romantic to share lush personalized stationery with someone you love...
This long format from William Arthur
with an elegant monogram is lovely.

and all can be personalized for couples at

My friend Barbara Mangini, author of the creative and inspiring blog 
introduced me to this 60 year-old company,
which is one of the finest makers of luxury stationery. 
for the dreamers in your life - a journal to capture their stories?
With five days left until Valentine's Day,
why not head on over to William Arthur
and pick up a little something special.
