Do any of you plan to, or for the ladies who have delivered, or have you sent out birth announcements? We didn't with our last 2 but I have been feling extra crafty lately (plus I had gift cards) so I stopped by Joann fabrics and got some card making supplies. I only got a 12 pack and we will keep 1 for ourselves. My dh likes to try to send cards to everyone he ever met so by making them myself it forces a limit. I'll have to set up a photo bucket account so I can show pictures of the announcements when I make them.

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

I just do a FB announcement. That way no one can complain they didn't get one and our families are too big to send one to everyone. Christmas cards turned out to be a bad idea after I got several emails from family complaining they didn't get one. Sorry people! DH and I can't afford that many!

I never have. I also just do the FB announcement. The ones I've seen are always super cute though.

That is the reason we don't do the. We wouldn't have people complain to us they didn't get one but my dh wants to send them to every relation he has plus the people his parents have known for years whether he knows them or just knows of them. We can't do that many cards! The postage would bankrupt us! Plus, his mother expects us to send her a list of everyone we send to so she can tell us who we missed. Therefore, we have not sent out cards at all for anything. That is why I am making them. There is a forced limit! If anyone else wants more cards sent they can do them themselves.

I will be but only as my sister in law is a photographer so has allready designed the cards and will be coming up to the hospital once she is born to take a photo. I just have to put a list together and she is going to send them all out for us ��
Otherwise I would probably just do the fb announcement

I didn't for dd1 buy think I may for this little one. I had bleeding early on and it scared the bejeezus out of me that we would mmiscarry and then I announced it on fb but I feel like I've not made as big of a fuss about her as I did with dd1. No idea who I'm getting them through though.

I am older -- or perhaps just old fashioned -- so I will definitely be sending out traditional printed announcements. I have yet to decide whether I'll be constructing them (block print is the idea right now) with the assistance of my sister when she's here after the baby arrives or designing them but having them professionally printed. They will go out to a slew of people -- many family friends, relatives etc. Although you are right, it certainly gets expensive, it's just something that is important to us, . (Well, to me, DH wasn't raised with any sense of social grace or customs, so the concept of announcements would never have come up.) We also have a long "B-list" and those people will get a pdf email of announcement, just to cut back a little on the expense. I'm actually thinking of keeping it off Facebook, but I'm undecided on that at the moment.

We've done them for each child, so we'll do one with this baby too. I'll create them myself and then print them out at my photo lab. I will only be sending them to good friends and immediate family this time. We never get Christmas cards anymore and I do custom greeting cards for our families and friends so now I'm only going to send them out to a few people.

We did! Everyone loves getting cards in the mail that isn't a bill! haha
I found some on clearance at target. I didn't have the right sized picture so on the picture slot I put a cut out of her foot on it instead. So they got her little foot print and then I just stuck the picture inside They loved it. I hope I have the time/patience to do it again. But I haven't bought the announcements.

I am thinking a cute FB announcment and then I got a bunch of free cards from one of those photo sites that I can use up for this. I am really looking forward to it!
