Our family newsletter is really one of the only traditions we have, so I'm holding onto it -- and tight! Instead of a paper newsletter (because we are lazy and cheap and don't want to pay for postage), we do a digital newsletter that began as an infographic when those were all the rage. They are all graphics that hail to the year they are honoring.
Here's what our family was up to in 2016... It was mostly just me going to bunch of doctor's appointments, but that's not very exciting and it's hard to romanticize so it looks good on a graphic.
For this year's newsletter, I used Canva. Typically I make my own from scratch, but with a new baby and a toddler running around, ain't nobody got time for that!
May 2016 settle in peace in our memories. Welcome, new year. Welcome.
Here are the newsletters from years gone by... 2012 I remember taking forever to make all those wretched circles. Plus, the idea of the Swedish flag morphing into the Finnish flag, indicating we had moved from Sweden to Finland, was completely lost on most people, and all those circles were for naught. Sigh. That was the first time I was really using my beloved Inkscape. But, though stiff and slow, 2012 in Inkscape was nothing like using Microsoft Word to create our first one in 2011. Ah, the memories.
I love herbs & spices, cats, low brass instruments, international relations, culture, traveling, writing, and most of all, my family.
