Birth Announcement Ideas

Announcement 005

We never sent out birth announcements which makes me sad. I had even scoured the best of the interweb for birth announcement ideas and found some real winners. Not that anyone didn’t know she was born thanks to Facebook, but I love sending and receiving paper mail. It’s such a lost art. I love sending out Christmas cards too, but with postage that can get so expensive.

Anyway, I just got my newborn photos from my very talented sister-in-law, Kensie M Photography and was looking at birth announcements on Pinterest and said to myself, “Self, you could make these. So I did. Just because I didn’t mail them out doesn’t mean I can’t show them off here. I used picmonkey and a little creativity and this is what I came up with.

I was really in favor of more colorful fun designs as opposed to classic or simple. There were a lot more birth announcement ideas that I liked but didn’t play around with. You can see them here on my Pinterest board.

Pinterest is seriously so fabulous. You find awesome ideas that other people came up with and then you can recreate them and look all awesome. How in the world did I plan a wedding without Pinterest? Oh yeah…it was super-lame (besides that whole getting married thing. hehe)

Enough words. Announcing my daughter:
