Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year's day!
This year at my job, School Improvement Network, I was asked to create our Christmas Party Poster and email invite. I decided I was going to do what I wanted since this is an internal project. I was basically asked to create this the day before the email invite was to be sent out and I wanted to do all or nothing so it would match the poster I was making.
So that night, I took it home and hand lettered as quickly and perfectly as I could. I drew on a 11x17 piece of paper in graphite. The next morning at work I found a chalk board texture and finished the design in Photoshop. This project was a lot of fun and inspired me to continue to perfect my hand lettering. The best complement I got was, "I thought it was a cute font you found." I thought about using fonts, but I felt that the best way to get what I wanted was to draw it out, rather than spending the whole night to find something that would be okay.
