D is almost two years old now and making a growth chart for him has been on my to do list since before he was even born.. yes, that is how far behind I am on my list of things to do.. hey.. don't judge!
I started with cardboard from the white corrugated display boards you can get at any Micheal's or Staples. Cut it in to pieces.
I attached the two pieces with colorful stripes of felt. I used a pliable material mainly so that it could be easily folded. Else I'd have D pulling at it and most probably doodling on it.. I also used the same colored felt as an edging.
The back being brown and covered with writing I decided to glue on some colorful gift wrap, so that it looks nice folded.
I marked D's height at 6 month intervals and glued a button at the end of every marking.
Then I marked M and my height too.. yes that is me under the 5feet mark..
I added a jute loop to both sides of the chart to I could fold it and hang in D's room.
and in other news.. I just sold 'Dark Day' to a lovely woman in Germany!
For those who can't get enough of me ; )
