If you have spent any time on Pinterest, you've probably seen these awesome growth charts that look like giant rulers. I love that they are both beautiful and functional, and have the potential to become treasured heirloom pieces with your children's heights carefully marked off over the years.
When Rosanna from Little Acorns by Ro asked me to develop a project using her vinyl ruler decals, I jumped at the chance. We brainstormed a few ideas and ultimately decided to make a classic, yellow schoolhouse ruler with the words "HASKE & SONS est. 2001" (I chose the year we were married as our established date).
I am blown away by the finished growth chart! The vinyl decals give it such a professional look and were sooo much easier to apply than attempting to hand paint each tick mark and number. They are priced very reasonably, so if you've been looking for the perfect handmade baby shower gift, this is it!
