I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

That is amazing, I love it. I'm curious, and maybe I missed it - how do you attach the tape measures?

I just used a heavy decoupage type glue (probably gel medium or mod podge).  They were fabric or plastic, and they've held really well. Smiley
