I was very impressed with Lauren Meader's family tree project (here) and the sweet story that went with it but I really had no intention of doing one. Then I went to Joann's last Sunday and went down the floral isle (which I never do). Next thing I know, there is that wire "tree" frame right in front of me for a whopping $2.79. I thought, what the heck... I'll buy one and maybe, just maybe make one, too. So, now, three days later, I not only started it, I finished it. I'm not entirely pleased with it. I need to make sure the pictures quit turning funny. I need to tack them down a bit better. I have a larger family than Lauren's so I have more pictures but I think I still need a few more embellies to balance it, yet, I don't want it to get overly busy. I wish I had made all the bows the same, too. Still, overall, I certainly don't hate it. I just want it to be a bit better.
So, what do you think? If anyone has suggestions, please feel free. I am so very open to critism and won't be offended, I'll be appreciative! Honest!
I wish I could find that wonderful red/hot pink bird that Lauren used, too. This was the best I could do but I am still on the lookout! This really will be changed at some point.
I love the Gingerbread Boy. I had to give him a scarf. Hey, it's cold in Colorado!
