A rainy day activity

April 16, 2011

The weather was yucky in Morgantown today and I was feeling lazy, so I decided to accomplish a wedding task that required me to sit on the couch with the laptop. 🙂

As I mentioned before, we’re going to have very few out-of-town guests who actually spend the night. However, I want to create guest boxes for those who do. I plan on including some snacks, informational brochures, easily forgotten items (toothpaste, Tylenol, etc.), WVU souvenir, bottles of water, and the above newsletter.

I tried to be a skilled designer and create the document in Adobe InDesign, but that was a big fat FAIL. Google, practice and lots of patience taught me a lot about Photoshop over the years, but I wasn’t in the learning mood today. I abandoned the advanced program and went back to the trusty Microsoft Word. The newsletter isn’t flashy by any means, but it will serve its purpose.

I included a note from us, history of Morgantown, several pictures, and important information. I also suggested things to do, places to eat and bars to visit. Hopefully people will be able to put it to good use!
