My kids are little now (1 and 3 years old) but they are growing so fast. I wanted to document it on an adorable ruler growth chart. There are a lot of ruler growth chart DIY tutorials on Pinterest, which is where I first got the idea. Some use sharpie marker for the number and…

Bungee Ball Storage

There were a few balls rolling around loose in my garage that were driving me nuts. My boys are only 1 and 3 years old, so I know these balls are going to multiply like rabbits as the years go by. I decided it was necessary to build this bungee cord ball storage contraption. It was…
