Pregnancy Announcements for Facebook

With our first pregnancy I couldn’t wait to tell everyone, so as soon as we got the news we wanted to post it to facebook, so that we could avoid calling everyone individually to tell them (and having hurt feelings because we called one person before another and so on). We called the new grandparents and then took this picture and posted it with the clues to facebook.

It was a cute way to announce it until I got a few people telling me I really did look pregnant. I was 5 weeks along and shouldn’t have looked any more pregnant than before! So we decided to find another way to tell everyone for the second pregnancy.

I searched all of my pins and decided to do something a little bit more unique. With a second child our Jeep will be full, so we went out to our closest wash (aka dry creek) and took this picture. Click on the picture to see it bigger!

The idea was a little more confusing but still super cute! Once I explained it in the comments everyone got it. At least no one’s calling me fat this time!

Beware of Dog and Owners Sign

As a gun enthusiast, I love this sign:

(Image from Applegate Signs on Etsy)

But I am more worried that people need to be aware of the dog, I wouldn’t want her to get the wrong idea about someone and attack. So I created my own sign to cover both the dog and the owners.

Materials:
Square Piece of Wood
Acrylic Paint
Pencil or Stencils
Silver Sharpie
Outdoor Mod Podge or other Sealant

Directions:
1. Paint the background color onto the wood. Let it dry completely.

2. Pencil the words onto the wood. It would be easier to use a stencil, but with my spending fast I used a pencil and tried to do everything by hand.

3. Paint the words onto the board. After they are dry, outline the letters with the silver sharpie.

4. Using the mod podge as a sealant, spread it over everything. When the front is dry, do the same for the back.

Now it can be hung on the fence. Hopefully if anyone gets attacked in our yard, this sign will help save our assets.
