oving these vintage Portuguese transportation ads — particularly the awesome lettering, which I found over at Dias que Voam, which you should visit PRONTO.
The majuscule letters (do we say that in English? for capital letters?) at the bottom of the first ad above kind of remind me of the style of lettering I used for lettering the names on my last round of family tree orders (finally shipped!):

***HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALL!***
I hope you’re having a lovely, cozy, pumpkin pie-filled day.
In honor of this, one of my oh-so favorite holidays, I wanted to show my gratitude for you all and offer a special Thanksgiving Day promotion in my Etsy shop: Place any family tree order by midnight E.S.T. tonight and receive FREE SHIPPING! Trees range in size from 5″x7″ (New Baby Tree) to 18″x24″ (Large Family Tree). Shipping can get expensive… but not today! 🙂
Additional reminder: Today is the deadline to order a family tree if you would like to make sure that it’s shipped in time for the holidays.
My family trees are hand-drawn, hand-cut, hand-glued, and a lot of other entirely handmade acts. I customize them exactly how you wish, taking into account your color preferences, name and label preferences, framing preferences, etc..

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.
