The University of California’s English Broadside Ballad Archive is also a fantastic project, with a dedicated team making previously hard to find (on microfiche or in archive) broadsides available to everyone, and transcribed to modern eyes and ears. Amazing. What we have online is amazing.
My Halloween invitations: let me show them to you.
Every year I plan a Halloween celebration that centers on a theme and we do something based on that theme every weekend. There is always a scavenger hunt and we always carve pumpkins. Past themes have ranged from the 7 deadly sins to the Spiritualist Movement.
I was feeling nostalgic this year & went with a Harry Potter theme. Everyone got their own Hogwarts letter…..that was really a 14 page fold out invite I designed.
We woke up in the middle of the night to hand deliver each one to the recipient’s doorstep— complete with owl & feathers!
