I just can’t help myself sometimes!
My youngest son is in 7th grade this year,
and this is the year that many of his friends are
celebrating their Bar and Bat Mitzvah’s.
Couldn’t I just buy a a card to give to these kids
with a check inside? Of course not!
Instead I found this amazing scan of a cancelled
letter from Tel Aviv that is dated 1949.
I added text with two fonts, JaneAusten & Saeculum,
printed it out on a mat finish paper, soaked the whole thing in coffee,
and turned it into an envelope.
Voila! The finished piece below!
