I havent done a newsletter with our Christmas card before. But I'm thinking about something short and sweet this year. I do enjoy getting them from friends and family... but I dont want to be THAT girl. You know.. the one who says too much and has everyone whispering behind her back. Every family has one.
So here are some easy guidelines to remember if you are crafting a newletter this year:
1. Short and sweet. No more than one page...and keep the font up around 12. Don't skrink the letters to fit the page. We all know that trick.
2. Don't brag. There is a big difference between, "Sara graduated from college this year..." and "Sara graduated from the prestigious University of ____ with top honors and already has a job making more than you."
3. Nothing negative. Yes, times are tough... but if you can't fill your newsletter happy things maybe this isn't the year to send one with your card.
Short and Sweet, positive, and no bragging.
