They Grow Up So Fast – 4 Super-Creative DIY Growth Markers

Posted on May 26th, 2017 by Uncategorized

My mom can’t be the only one to have us kids stand up against the wall so she could mark how tall we had gotten every so many months? In fact, I know she can’t be because my grandma still does it will all of her still-growing grandchildren to this day! (Though, thanks to my two taller-than-six-foot cousins she’s had to drag over a step stool so she can accurately measure them. ­čśë ) Almost every month she’ll have each grandchild┬ástand up against the door frame of her pantry and pull out the trusted Sharpie! I think it’s an adorable tradition, and I love the idea of just using the wall or door frame, but if you’d like other less-permanent options for measuring your kids periodically┬ácheck these out…

Four Creative DIY Growth Markers

The Ruler 

This Pottery Barn “knock off” by 517Creations is SO cute. And it’s relatively easy with minimal supplies needed as well! Head here to check it out.

I think this idea is so creative! It’s very unique and I love that you can transport it SO easily as the kids grow older and change rooms or you move to a new house. Get the instructions here.

For this one you’re not just marking the height, you’re also recording fun milestones as well! This one is similar to the ruler, though it’s much more detailed! Find inspiration here.

If you’re an embroidery whiz – this one’s for you! Or, if you’re not so handy in the sewing department (like myself) you can always use stamps or markers instead! I just love the whimsical feel of the fabric… It would look adorable in a nursery! Go here for the tutorial.

Have you ever┬áran out of salad dressing? It’s okay, it happens to the best of us.

I can’t stand it though. It’s like when you get all excited to bake cookies and realize you don’t have any flour, or you’re dreaming of spaghetti and find you don’t have any marinara sauce. I’m not necessarily dreaming of salads, but I do find myself getting excited about dumping my favorite strawberry dressing all over my spinach, and I have to tell you, it’s not fun when I realize that all I’ve got is a bunch of spinach and no strawberry dressing.

Then I realized I could make my own!

I’ve always been so used to buying my salad dressings at the store that it never really occurred to me that I could make my own! Salad dressing just didn’t seem like something that could be made by any average Joe like myself. Boy, was I wrong! Making salad dressing is SO easy. My favorite dressing is Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette, and I have the perfect recipe to share with you for making this heavenly stuff. I only put it on spinach for show (so that I don’t look nuts) though I’d be perfectly happy drinking this stuff straight!

Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Add the following ingredients to a blender:

  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp honey (add more if you’d like it sweeter)

Blend on low for about 30 seconds – until everything is well combined.

Done. Seriously, it’s that easy! I’m sure you have all of the ingredients right now, so go ahead and try it. It will make spinach-eating a much more pleasant experience.
