I’ve been thinking of creative ways to publicly announce our good news! When we had our first, three years ago, I carved a pumpkin and posted it on Facebook. I did it during the Fall season when pumpkins were readily available. To read about my step-by-step on how I made our Fall theme baby announcement, click here. For our second baby, I didn’t do anything since I took almost a year and a half sabbatical from Facebook. We did have maternity photos taken by a photographer (and then we took pictures of her ourselves when she arrived) and I used those to make a thank you card to give to friends and family.
Now that I am back on social media… and not only Facebooking, but also blogging (for the first time!) I thought I should probably do something creative to publicly announce that our family is expanding.
I like using my husband as a sound board when I am brainstorming. My mind can go on and on with so many different ideas. My husband being an engineer as he is, can help me have a better focus and scale things down for me.
Last weekend, after much deliberation and procrastination, I decided to go with scrabble letters. (A game we both enjoy playing that can easily go for hours!). After taking LOTS of pictures, I showed them to my husband and asked him to pick his favourites. And so did I. Together, we came up with our TOP PICKS! Let’s take a good look at them, shall we?
