it’s always an exciting day when two of my favorite artists team up to produce something fantastic and new. today artists shanna murray and betsy dunlap proudly launched their new collaboration, hello handmade, on etsy. bringing together betsy’s unique and unusual calligraphy and shanna’s wonderful illustrations, hello handmade was started with the goal of, “turning everyday objects into a joy to behold.” their debut collection is starting with a beautiful screenprinted 2009 calendar and wintery 12×12 holiday print. later in the week betsy and shanna will add holiday cards and gift tags (i can’t wait to scoop those up) to the shop so stay tuned. in the meantime, click here to check out, and shop, betsy and shanna’s gorgeous new “hello handmade” collection.
