Little known fact about me: I am a total Potterhead.

I am also a Ravenclaw and a Pukwudgie. My wand is 10 inches long, made of fir wood with a unicorn hair core and unbending flexibility. My patronus is a bay stallion. (PSA for my fellow nerds: check out Pottermore to find out yours!)

Recently reading the new Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play reminded me of how much I used to love Harry Potter as a younger teenager. To put it in perspective, I was one of the thirteen-year-old girls dressed in Hufflepuff colors at the premiere of the 8th and final movie (though I wasn't allowed to go out at midnight, boo). I cried when Fred Weasley died, both in the books and the movies, and consoled myself over his death by writing FanFiction in which my OC Alice fell in love with him. I also participated in online roleplays in which I could act out my Hogwarts fantasies by writing back-and-forth scenes with other players' characters.

Embarrassing? Maybe a little. But warranted? 100%.

Harry Potter was for me what it has been for so many others: the classic children's series that I grew up with. As the characters grew older and began to become interested in boys, so did I. As their lives became more dangerous, mine became more complicated with age. Turning to Harry Potter, like the many other books I've devoured and loved throughout my lifetime, helped me escape from some of the difficulties of everyday life. And while some might have described me as "obsessed" with it back then,

Though my love for Harry, Ron, and Hermione had been laid away on the back-burner, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child revived some of that spark. I had forgotten how much I used to love the characters, but seeing the brand-new shenanigans and grown-up dynamic between the Golden Trio kindled something familiar in my heart.

So, in honor of Halloween, I decided to put my creative skills and that rediscovered love to the test! I got to work putting together six gorgeous printables for y'all. They're cute, clever, and full of that familiar Potter spirit we all know and love.

Feel free to print 'em out, frame 'em, hang 'em up in your home - whatever you want to do with them! Just don't steal them and pass them off as your own, k? (Fellow bloggers: if you want to repost, please credit Love, Haley and link back to the blog!)

These printables are yours for PERSONAL USE only!
