Family Tree Art
I designed this paper family tree from a similar fabric project that my great friend, Jen, was doing with the young women (12-18 year olds) at church. I made the original for my brand new baby's nursery...then made a few more for family. I got it into my head that maybe other people would buy these family trees from me...so I've made stencils and templates for the tree, leaves and heart, and I bought a cool die cut machine and several alphabets for the title lettering.
I decided to post these family trees on Etsy (an online venue for crafters to sell their stuff). I just posted this project to my "Etsy Shop" at whatisemilyupto.etsy.com. I'm actually a little nervous, but also excited about having a piece of myself out there in the wide world for someone to buy.
Wish me luck!!!!
