Since I’m organizing my book collection I decided to make a Christmas tree out of books! hahaha. Here it is so far. I might put lights on it too. If I had the patience I’d string popcorn and put it on! hehe

Christmas Ships Project for School

I’ve been working on this design project for my typography class. I chose to do an event series centered on the Christmas Ships that parade up and down the rivers near Portland, Oregon with Christmas lights. Find out more at http://christmasships.org if you are interested. Here is some of my work so far. There is a whole bunch more process work that I’m not posting, but this is where I’m at right now. We have to create a whole bunch of different parts for the whole campaign. You can click the below images to enlarge them too.

Polly McKean Bell’s Book

This is a wonderful little book that was written by my dad’s stepfather’s mother about life in the 1880’s in Astoria, Oregon. The story is very charming. I haven’t scanned the whole story, but I thought I’d include a few pages here. The title is “Evergreen Boughs and Mince Meat Pie.” It is a very sweet story about Christmas time traditions just before the turn of the last century! Be sure to click on the pages to see an enlarged version of the page!

UPDATE: Just found this great story about Polly’s aunt Eliza and Uncle Hustler! http://files.usgwarchives.net/or/clatsop/bios/hustler1188gbs.txt
