Now regrettably I don't have any Made It's for school, but they are baby shower gifts. I don't know about you all, but my team had to throw THREE baby showers last year alone and we have another one coming up this year sometime before winter break. We win the Most Fertile Team Award by a landslide. By June, 4 out of 6 of us were pregnant or had a child in the past year. I'm staying away from the water if you know what I mean. But I digress. The point is that inevitably you are going to go to a school baby shower and you might need a gift. So there. It actually IS a School Made It. Hmph.
Again regrettably I can't take any credit for the creative genius of my projects since I shamelessly lifted them off Pinterest.
Here's my Pinterest find:
And here's my take. Sorry to show you up boogaboo handmade :P Just kidding. Kind of.
A gift set of onesies for each month of the first year. LOVE. I admit I thought this was going to be a cheapish project. Maybe $20-$30 range. NOPE. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how my set turned out, but all told and said it ended up being a $70 project. Yikes! Iron-on transfer paper is expensive. So is baby detergent. Oh and the onesies weren't cheap either. I guess that's a delusion only one without babies of their own can have.
Anywhoos, I was so in love that I couldn't help having a little photo shoot in my living room to show you some of my little upgrades :)
First, I added a Newborn onesie. I was going to make this one "0 Months" but I went with this little quip instead.
Plus I added a little "love tap" on the booty of each onesie. It says "Lil' Henderson" with Henderson being the future child's last name.
Here they are all lined up.
Ahh! I can't wait to see the little muffin in these!
Here's my more thrifty baby shower gift. Another friend is also pregnant and the shower hasn't been planned yet but I'm sure it's only a matter of time so I decided to get this done when I still had the time and energy. I recently found this little gem on Pinterest from What to Expect. (For some reason the page is really slow to load so be patient)
I didn't make many changes to this one as it was perfect in it's simplicity already. Here's mine:
It was dark and I had a hard time finding an angle with less reflections from things in the room.
Here's Daddy and Mommy Pin.

Daddy, Mommy, and Baby Pin!
Maybe it's just me but I couldn't believe how a few safety pins could tell a story of love. This is going to be a new baby shower standard gift for me. I got the frame on sale at Michael's for 50% off. The scrapbook paper, safety pins, and hot glue I had on had. The whole thing cost about $10. Oh, one thing I learned from reading the What to Expect post is that you will need foam mounting tape to raise the mat up a bit so the safety pins aren't squished up against the glass.
