harry potter always – harry potter baby gifts

Harry Potter Baby Gifts | A gift box from Directions Not Included

It was no surprise that when the bestie had her first, our love of Harry Potter would turn into tons of Harry Potter baby gifts. At her baby shower, I shared my Harry Potter box of goodies. I may have gone a bit overboard. And if you've been around the last few months you've seen a few of these projects pop up on the blog. We have a feeling the little one will have a better grasp on Harry Potter before his own name. What can I say? I'm a proud Tia (Auntie)! Between that and loving to make all … [Read more...]

What The Duck Is It Baby Shower & Gender Reveal

Oh hi there. I won't even say I'm back for real or try to excuse my absence but my day-job has put definitely put a damper on my blogging the last few months. Why do I have to be a grown up?

I used my trusty Silhouette to set up the text for the project. Applying vinyl using transfer … [Read more...]

Harry Potter Nursery Art - Directions Not Included - Birchwood Slices Nursery Art

Clearly the Harry Potter theme is going to be around throughout my bestie's pregnancy. How can it not? The room itself is not Harry Potter themed but that doesn't mean we can't add some Harry Potter nursery art to the mix. So far the nursery is lending itself to a modern, adventurer feel.  I picked up these birchwood wood slices at Michael's a few weeks ago with no plan in mind. I have a bit of a craft hoarding problem. I randomly just buy things I have no concrete plan for (please tell me I am … [Read more...]

Chalkboard Arrow Sign - Directions Not Included

Don't get excited. There is no baby in the works for this blogger. I'm knee deep in planning for my bestie's first born. So far I've made a million Harry Potter onesies, have a secret Pinterest board for her shower & baby crafts, as well as a few other projects currently in the works. This chalkboard arrow sign shouldn't even count as a project because it was so simple. I went to Michael's last weekend for the #mpinterest party and picked up the wooden arrow with a coupon. Sadly, I was the … [Read more...]
