Christmas Letters--the twelve months till Christmas

I love getting Christmas letters! 

I hate writing them!

So I found a way to share our year without having to write:


It's the Twelve months till Christmas letter!  For each month I chose a photo (taken in that month) and wrote a little title and there you have it...my letter is done!

Now if I had more time (and inclination) I would have put more artistic effort into the project.  Instead I just opened up Word, made a table, inserted titles and picture.  Re-sized everything to fit and print.

Easy Sneezy! (the sneezy part is my littlest who seems to have another cold!)

If you use this great (if I do say so myself) idea--please share!  Let me know how it turns out! I'd love some format inspiration for next year!

I LOVE this idea. Not only is this good for Christmas, but it encourages people to find one great thing a month that's worthy of a photo....kind of like a gratitude photo journal. Fantastic!

Okay, that is GREAT! I love it.

I've typically never done Christmas letters, just photos/cards. This year, I found a way to work in a few words in a creative way. I'll post it on my blog once my cards have been shipped and are in people's hands.

Thanks for entering my giveaway and commenting on my blog. Good luck :]

And I agree about Christmas "newsletters", we've never done it as we're just too lazy. We're terrible people, I know but I like that idea. It's quite cute.

I love this idea because I never seem to like how I sound in the big, long letters. Pictures are so much better! Thanks for sharing!!!

I am with you on writing the annual letter! In fact, I stopped doing it. Now that I write a blog I just direct people to it's url. But I love this picture caption style so maybe it'll be back next year:)
