Do you measure up?

So here I am, all excited about this new publication that happened to catch my eye, and I am flipping through the pages when I come across this! Isn’t this just the cutest thing??? Ohmigod, say it with me now…. Fabulous! I know several new Mommies that would love this idea, and it would be such a snap to make. Heck I’d make this and put it in my house. Instead of watching myself grow I could measure myself every year and see how much I shrank! Remember, I’m middle-aged, so it’s all downhill from here.

Anyway, the idea came from a special issue of Southern Lady magazine called FreshStyle. Must say it is a great little magazine with some really fun ideas. I’m still browsing through it, but got so jazzed up about this project I decided I just had to share.
Instructions posted below are as they appear in magazine.

“GET GROWING”

Mark all-important growth spurts with a so-big ruler. Use an all-in-one stain and varnish to cover a 6-foot length of
6 x 1-inch board. Mark inches with a permanent marker. After drilling pilot holes, attach painted house numbers with screws. Attach a hanger to the back, and mount on the wall 1 foot from the floor.

  1. I want one:) I don’t know how good I would be at making this myself, but I am up for the challenge! Maybe for Tan’s 1st Birthday! I’ll call you about it soon!
