Email the Happy News in Style!

see more by


When my daughter arrived 2 1/2 weeks early we were soooooo ill prepared on so many fronts!   I meant to send out a cute email announcing her arrival with pictures, but by the time we got home from the hospital, I was so overwhelmed I never got around to it.   My husband sent a basic one to a few family and friends, but that was about it.

This time around, things will be different!   I LOVE getting the email with pictures when friend’s babies arrive.  They are my favorite emails to receive.   That’s why I was so thrilled to find out about First Announcement.   

It is a totally FREE service and a fun and stylish way to e-announce the happy news.  All you do is register, log in, pick a design (cute, albeit limited options), and then you can pre-load your email list ahead of time.    I had my contacts imported from Outlook, then you select who will receive the email.  It was super easy and again, you can do it AHEAD of time! 

Then when the baby arrives, all you have to do is enter in the “stats”, upload a picture and click “send!” Something even the dads can do on their own!
