A Growth Chart For A Fisherman-Woman's Son!

This one is mostly just a picture post!
   Danni from Silo Hill Farm knows
I tend to look at the pictures and skip the story, LOL!
  Cheers Danni!

Well maybe a little bit of text.....1/4 inch MDF cut to  5" x  64"


Totem is now Rona who will hopefully still sell "oops" paint



Mixed the cheap blue paint with a bit of white to make wave and bubbles.

Drew some sea creatures down the side.



Filled the drawings in with paint and used a felt marker to make lines at every inch.



I stenciled numbers from 2 feet to  6 feet and marked the inch increments with a felt pen.

This will be hung on a wall at two feet where the stenciled 2 foot mark is made.

Sorry for the crappy photos.  This was a rushed project that went out the door as I was taking the last photo, so there were no retakes.
Cheers!

  10. So super cute! I could never make it look like that. Mine would look more like dead fish in an aquarium that desperately needs a good cleaning. Kudos!

  15. This is such a cute idea! My kids just get their heights measured on the wall...not my favorite. Maybe have to rethink things a bit.
