Mission ACCOMPLISHED, thanks for the challenge, @goodtype. I combined two of my favorite events, Hannukah (which is starting tonight) and #GoodtypeTuesday (with this week’s ampersand theme), and made a menorah of my #infinity_ampersand. Let it glow, let it glow, let it glow.
Happy #Hanukah, y’all!
HT416 / Post # 3 in my #lexicronicles, where I use newly-minted Hebrew words (yes, that is totally a thing. The @hebrew_academy is responsible for creating native equivalents of not-yet-hebraicized terms) for #hebrewtype. This is “oo.go.neat” עוגונית- the new word for cupcake.
Lettering done in the #spencerian style for #GoodtypeTuesday. It’s not my first attempt to marry a language nearly incompatible with swashes and curves (see #spencerianhebrew), and this time I decided to take it up a notch or three with #foodtype made of (duh) cupcakes and icing gel. @goodtype
HT415 / I can draw “simha” שמחה (happiness) a million times over, and it’ll never be enough. I wish you all the happiness in the world, because when you surround yourself with happiness, you can get through any and every challenge. .

“Fanani banani” פאנני בנני. This week #goodtypetuesday asks for our personal mantra, and I either don’t have one or have a billion. Regardless: fanani, fab, excellent, and awesome are things you’ll hear me say regularly. Life is nuts, crazy things happen. I make the best of it by making it the best. (swipe to zoom) #typeforants .

Todah תודה! A mighty thank you to every single one of you for hanging out here with me, encouraging me, meeting irl, and otherwise being awesome. I started this journey thanks to your support (especially looking at you, Elisheva), and even through busy weeks like right now where I’m not taking as much time to create new things here (as it happens, I’m prepping a massive holiday treat for @dappernotes), thank you for sticking around. I appreciate you.

Before I went traveling I thought I could accomplish so much work during all the little in betweens. Alas, I did not, but #hallelujah I am home and getting back into my groove. This #ambigram was made to celebrate the life of #leonardcohen and his iconic song that very much helped me through many moments of my life. And yes, I do have stickers of it, and no, there aren’t many available anymore. Link in you know where if you’re interested.
Wishing you all a weekend full of all sorts of hallelujahs.

Happy birthday to the love of my life @elishevasa. You got a weird birthday, you got a weirder husband, and I’m super lucky to have your support putting up with all of my shenanigans, including (and especially) all of the time I spend on the work that goes up here.
Here’s to not looking a year over five hundred and two, and to many more, together, in happiness and great health
(Tag a friend with whom you’d like to share ribs, and you can both win a TGIF gift card) I teamed up with @officialtgifridays to announce their new “bigger, bolder, meatier” ribs, coming this Wednesday. Bon appetite! .

HT408 / You’ve probably heard of an en–dash, em—dash and the regular old dash-dash. But Hebrew has a special one called upper־dash, which for the most part is pretty much like a regular dash, used for things like repeating-repeating words-words. In chocolate here we have an upper־dash #ambigram of shwayeh-shwayeh שוויה־שוויה: a phrase of Arabic origins meaning “chill, one moment buddy, take your time.” Next time you’re feeling anxious, just reach for a bar of the nearest chocolate and remember to take things shwayeh־shwayeh.
HT407 / You may have noticed that my theme this week was same’ah שמח. Happiness. Apropos that the holiday which we consider a time for happiness (sukkot) fell at the same time as world mental health day. What does it mean exactly to be happy? I don’t think such a state exists; rather happiness is a journey of contentment, of being satisfied with the things I have. Your happiness isn’t the same as mine, necessarily, but for the next three days I’ll be away and focusing on counting my blessings. Journeying towards happiness, whatever it may be. #חגשמח #etroglettering
