I was thinking about doing something like that. When this one is born I want to get in right away and have some pictures of Matthew and the baby done-so I will probably have them make me some announcements. DH has tons of family in Vermont so that's where the majority will go.
I might do it. I will probably do the same thing as you AnAngel. My husband has an 11 yr old daughter. I will do something like...Amanda would like to introduce her new brother. I will put on his name (once we decide what it is), birthdate, weight, and everything. I want to get their pics done together not long after he is born.
Honestly? I'm cheap. I found out through a friend sending me one that you can send a 4X6 picture as a postcard. So, what I'm going to do it take a blank white onesie, and have printed on it Jelly's name and birth stats, and then take a pic of him/her in it and send them just like that to family.
Since Thumper is our first I may be a little extravagent, at least with family. I have some friends that scrapbook, so I may ask for their help to come up something cute. For everyone else I will probably just go to Circuit City, have a bazillion photos copied, and buy a set of print-your-own-cards to send out with the photo.
I've done all sorts. The last ones I did to announce my daughter were much more expensive and "frilly" - they came unassembled with vellum and ribbon and we had to put them all together, but they were really cute.
This time around I don't know...I'm pretty creative and i love to do crafty stuff, so depending on how crazed I am once he actually arrives, maybe I'll try to do something myself. Otherwise, I may just do the ol' Walgreens special...photocard with stats.
