I keep meaning to do them online. She will be three weeks tomorrow and I still haven't taken the time to do them.

I did baby announcements with DS and I will most likely do them with this baby also. I had them made on Shutterfly because I had a gift card and I only made enough to send to immediate and close friends and family.

I didn't with my previous 2 children, and honestly I doubt I will do it with this one unless my hubby wants me to. Honestly (and I am terrible I know) I usually keep them for a week and then toss them afterwards. It kind of weirds me out to think that my children's pictures are in the trash somewhere. I'll probably email an annoucement now that I think about it.

I would make mine own since I have all of that paper, but I am sort of a freak when it comes to buying supplies.

How many announcements are you getting Missy? I could do all of the cutouts for hello kitty announcements that you could just glue together, if you want. Let me know.

I didn't do them with DD, but will probably do an e-mail/facebook one this time. DH has some experience with graphic design and could probably make something really nice.

Ours should get here today DH designed them and ordered through a printing place online (aka: cheap). We went super-simple, I will post a pic when they get here. We have large families and they all freak out about wanting pictures as soon as the baby gets here...so it is an easy way to get them a picture. We got 50 of them and a solid 30 of those just go to MY family. I think about 10 go to DH's and 10 go to friends.

We spent a crazy amount on Liam's baby announcements because we had them done through the professional photographer we used. I look back and am like "WHY did we do that?!" But ya live and learn with that first kiddo.

I would need at least 60. Thank you very much for the offer Courtney - I think I am just going to buy cheap xmas cards from Walmart and put a picture in there.

I really appreciate you thinking of me. Means a lot.

Try Walgreens when they have their picture sales. I know they post announcements in there.
