I started out with the above layout. The text in it is just a repeated sentence to hold the spot and show you where text was going to go. That just seemed like too much text to manage with my one (non-dominant) hand. I thought about using a voice recognition software to input the text. But then I decided that a photo laden newsletter with just some highlights would do just fine!
This is my final design. I like it. Lots of cute pictures, and a re-cap of our year.
I used the digital kit City Sidewalks by Paper Garden Projects and Kimeric Kreations that just released today to decorate the newsletter with a sweet old-time holiday feel.
Now to get folding and stuffing envelopes one-handed!
