Growth charts are growing cooler by the minute

personalized growth chartsGrowth charts aren’t exactly one of those items that has overtaken the design world just yet. Mostly your options are semi-cheesy printed paper wallhangings, or what we use at my house — a pencil mark on a door frame. Klassy, I know!

So I was blown away by the fabric growth charts from A E Wilder‘s Etsy shop. As much art as milestone marker, these hand embroidered linen charts are simply and lovely with found vintage button embellishments and pretty ribbon for hanging. They can be made all the more special if you have it personalized with your kiddo’s name.

It even comes with a fabric marking pen to help tick off the days until little Caleb is old enough to take on those amusement park coasters by himself. Hopefully in about 47 years. –Liz

    Great write up on a great Etsy shop! I love this growth chart (and about everything else she makes!)! Hard to keep track of how fast they grow, might as well do it in a pretty way!

    ugh, bad timing! The shop is closed for a few weeks and doesn’t have any products to browse at all. You can sign up to be notified when it reopens tho. (if you sign in to your etsy account)

    Looks like they reopen again on Tuesday (June is only a few days away!) – it’s a bummer, but worth waiting for. Promise.
