Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! I was sitting around with my amazing family this morning, listening to Ella Fitzgerald and unwrapping my Star Wars toys (yes … mine) and it occurred to me that if 12-year-old me could see how 48-year-old me spends Christmas, he’d only say, “Well done older me. Well done indeed!” I hope your holiday is as full of joy as mine.

About the Hamilton Card

In the Sparks house, we like to make custom holiday cards and often they have a pop culture bent. This year we went for a Hamilton card, which I made with Pixelmator and OmniGraffle. The two MVP features were Pixelmator’s Quick Selection tool, which is like Instant Alpha (just way more powerful), and Piexelmator for iPad and the Apple Pencil. I had to hand draw in several elements. (Strangely, I don’t have any knee high boots and my wife does not actually own a hoop skirt.) The Pencil and iPad Pro really delivered.
