6' Ruler

I love Pinterest!  I try to look at it daily.  Seeking inspiration for my next project.  I have boards I created called "For The Home"  "Craft inspiration" and "In my home".

How I manage my boards?  When I see things I would love for my home, or think I can re-create, I pin them.  If I eventually buy or make the items I pinned, I move them to the board "In my home."

So, just before POKENO night in August, I was inspired by a 6' ruler, that looks like the 6" rulers we had in school.  I followed the link to ETSY, and found that the woman was selling them for $80 each... OUCH!  So I decided to see how it would turn out if I made one... so of course I made 2.  One to keep, one to give away.

OK.. So it isn't just a really cute home decor item... it is a functional growth chart!  This is so much better than marking the inside of a door frame, and much prettier than those folding paper charts.
Since the first 2 rulers were so successful, I have decided that these are the perfect baby shower gift.. so I made 5 more.
