Year in Review Newsletter

With our Christmas cards, we like to send out a little newsletter about the events that went on during the year. We don’t get to see a lot of our family and friends throughout the year as they span from Hawaii, BC, Ontario, FL, CA, well all over. This year we decided to create a little infographics newsletter. Kev was psyched! Anything where he gets to design he is always on board for. We were totally inspired by the amazingly talented Amanda Jane Jones (LOVE HER!) and by Nick Feltron (so cool, huh?).

Kev worked his magic and made an awesome graphic for us. We got them screen printed at a local shop in downtown Troy and voilรƒย ! the finished product…


We love getting a little extra creative with things!
p.s. somewhere in all the revisions we made, we lost/forgot the names under each pie chart. Whoops. Can you guess who’s is who’s?

  1. we received ours yesterday! Love love LOVE! and I liked that the pie charts didn’t have your names, it was cute to “guess” who’s was who’s (even though there was no guessing needed, knowing full well Kev’s cheeseburger addiction and Rowan’s preference for Cheddar Bunnies)

  2. Aww, I love it! Very fun. I’m a big fan of anything that involves a pie chart *and* a flickr mention. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well done!

  3. so cool!!

  4. You are too cute! This is great!

  5. This is wonderful! So creative, love it!


  6. You’re selling your cats?

  7. Haha No. We aren’t really selling our cats. It’s a family joke.

  8. WOW- This is so AWESOME! How will you send them out? In a big envelope? Just curious ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I love your newsletter. Now I want to create one for my family next year!

  10. Such a great idea! Your family and friends will love it so much and you will have a great souvenir of this year forever! I can’t wait to have a little family of my own ๐Ÿ™‚

    My very best wishes to the whole clan for this Holiday season!

  27. I love the Food Consumption graphs! And, to think that the three of you all live in the same house!

  28. What a subtle, funny, and eye catching letter! I have a feeling I will copy this later in life… Kev did a great job!

  29. I love the graphics! Awesome job! It’s so crazy though, because I live in Ann Arbor, and never knew about Amanda Jane Jones until just now, and got a little excited when I read that she was from Ann Arbor! Yay! Have a good holiday season!

  30. The first is Kevin, the second is you (from the pita and hummus), cheddar bunnies is Rowan! This is SO cute!!

  31. This is just about the coolest idea I have ever seen! It would be SO fun to get that in the mail. You guys are such a fun little creative family, I love it!
