I'm working away on the Christmas newsletter and am looking for some kind of jazzy template to show off my writing. When I google 'holiday newletter', it comes up with all kinds of advice and tips on how to create a readable one. Deciding I need a pat on the back (after all, I'm an excellent writer - just ask me if you don't think it's true), I click on the link to one advice page, then another, then another. A common thread that runs through them is, "don't try to fit every event and accomplishment in." They warn that your newsletter can lose a reader's interest if it stretches to two or (god forbid) three pages.

Without pictures, our newsletter weighs in at EIGHT.

Whoops. It would seem that I have some editing to do.
