Pinterest Challenge

Today I'm joining in on the Pinterest Challenge over at Young House Love.  The rules are simple... Create something using inspiration from Pinterest.  Easy peasy.  I've actually got two things that I've made recently.  Here's the first:
 I love the idea of a giant ruler to mark your children's height as they grow.  And if we move we can take it with us.
 I'm so happy with how it turned out and it was so easy to make. If you go to her blog you can follow her easy tutorial.
My second inspiration photo was this awesome costume:
Super cute!  But, I just can't bring myself to pay $150 for a costume.
 So I studied the pictures for a while and thought about it for a couple of months and decided to just go for it and attempt the costume myself.  Now, hands down the inspiration is better constructed than mine and a little cuter, but I'm absolutely thrilled with how mine came out, especially considering I only spent $15.
Such a cute Wild Thing!


  1. I pinned that Max costume too! I think you did a great job!

  2. Your wild thing is WAY cuter. And, I've totally been loving that ruler for keeping track of heights. Love love your version.
