For us Canadians, American Thanksgiving also marks the start of the holiday season. With one month until Christmas, that year-end frenzied feeling begins! (Especially for people like me who have to design a magazine and get it to print in time for the New Year!)

If you're doing some last-minute Thanksgiving hosting or planning a holiday celebration, Caravan is a new online shop that offers downloadable printables and decorations. The shop is co-founded by UPPERCASE readers Alma and Mike Loveland (whom I had the pleasure of meeting at last year's Alt Summit) and Melanie Burk (Fifth & Hazel).

As you're sitting down to your turkey today, please know that the small UPPERCASE team—me, Eleanor, Erin and Glen—are very grateful for your support of UPPERCASE magazine. Our American friends account for more than half of our readers, so THANK YOU!

(And here's a little code... use "specialthanks" for $10 off orders over $50 in the shop until midnight tonight. Sorry, discounts cannot be retroactively applied or combined.)
