Friday Finds...Growth Chart

I have been wanting to make a growth chart for the boys for a long, long time!
I keep putting it off because it seems like such a huge task.
I want it to be portable (instead of using a door or wall) because we'll probably move eventually.
I thought about using a long piece of wood, but then I would have to sand it, paint it, mark it, etc.
Too much work. 
Oh, and let's not forget, I am a terrible painter and my husband won't let me paint by myself anymore.
For now, we have been randomly marking Ande's height on the refrigerator.
It is not working out so well because the markings keep getting rubbed off. 

She found some Jute Webbing at Wal-Mart, made the ruler marks with a Sharpie, and marks the child's height with safety pins.
What a stellar idea!
I think I will be making a trip to Wal-Mart this weekend (unless Hurricane Irene knocks it down)!
