Monday Morning Question from Krissy at; http://journals.aol.com/fisherkristina/SometimesIThink/
Kathy's question is:
I am getting ready to write my Christmas Newsletter and I was wondering: "What Do People Think About Christmas Newsletters?" Do they read them? Toss them? Think they are braggy? Boring?
Personally I have always liked them and I enjoy receiving them and I've been writing one for years. Before I had a computer, I hand wrote a note inside each Christmas card that went to family members or friends out of town. But since a computer came to live at my house, I've resorted to that. (Besides my hands are old & tired, so the computer is a God send.) And the way I do it is to go into Word, write a basic letter and then I can personalize & modify it for each person. I print it out and when it says "Save" I just click no, then I have my basic letter back again. I've also simplified my Christmas card addressing. Originally it takes a little time but after that it's a snap. Again in Word I make a label for each person on my list, and save the labels as"Christmas Labels." If someone moves I can just go in and change the address, so that's no problem. When the time comes, I print them out on the clear address labels you can buy at Office Depot or where ever and slap them on the envelopes. Some addresses like the ones in England are too long for this process so those are hand addressed. I love to send cards, I send approximately 70-80 each year (I got that from my mom I guess) and I enjoy each and every one that comes into my mailbox.
