As I’ve posted about previously, I created a Holiday Paper Clips Journal to sell in my Etsy shop. But… let’s call a spade a spade: it’s a Christmas journal. It’s chock-full of reds and greens and Christmas trees and vintage Christmas papers and… it’s a Christmas Journal. And so I started feeling lame and awful because I have a ton of Jewish friends who, clearly, wouldn’t really benefit much from Christmas-themed papers. Not that they don’t appreciate awesome papers, but… you know.
Sooooo… I was inspired to create a Hanukkah journal, which I’ve dubbed my Eight Nights of Hanukkah Paper Clips Journal. Rather than reds and greens, there are blues and silvers and gold menorahs and stars of David and historical pages about Hanukkah and Hanukkah activity pages for kids and stickers and usable gift tags. Oh, and did I mention that I’ve included 8 dividers with silver number stickers to signal the eight glorious days and nights of the Festival of Lights? Great for keeping track of ideas, memories, gifts, recipes… or to use the papers for scrapbooking and collage projects. The majority of the pages are sized to a convenient 4″x6″ and there’s a mix of vintage and modern pages (just like my Christmas journal).
I’m pretty proud of it. Know anyone who might like one? Click HERE for additional images and ordering details.

Just saw these found paper stitched garlands over at decor8 and had to investigate further. AWESOME.
And then I found these festive holiday-themed paper garlands over at 3GIRLSandagoat:
And THEN I found this little gem of a paper garland over at Bookity, constructed from pages of Shakespearian plays!!!!
Can you freakin’ STAND it?!?!? I want to drape my apartment in these things. And maybe my mini Christmas tree, too. Oh, and PS) there are also Shakespearian tree ornaments:
