2014 Calendar

| December 10, 2013 11:11 am

I enjoying making a new family calendar each year and this time I actually got it finished in time so it will be printed before Christmas.  Sometimes I don’t have enough photos, especially of Jeff and his kids, so I have to wait until we get together a couple of weeks before Christmas.  But with the family reunion last summer I have plenty to work with.  John and Sara also send me photos and Sara, being a fantastic photographer, always gives me left with not enough room to include all the photos.

For the cover I used a photo I took of the flowers at Thanksgiving point.

There are two months where no one in the family has a birthday. For May, instead of using the typical photos about Mother’s Day I included the family group photo we had taken in August. For December I like to include something Christmas related. This year I came up with an idea of doing a collage of some of the Christmas related photos over the past 40 plus years. I found a Photoshop Action at PanosFX.com that did the trick for me.
