etsy finding...

i have read many post about people LOVING esty. actually, it was one of my sister-in-laws who first told me about it a year or so ago.


i would look on there every once in awhile but never bought anything until last month.


i was in search for the perfect gift for my mom.


yes, its really late birthday gift but i think i accomplished what i wanted to do... finding something she will love & cherish forever... put it in a frame & you have our family tree.

the lady making it had to make it larger than she normally does - ha! i would say 21 family members is a BIG family! anybody else have that BIG of a family?



i have had it over a week now (sorry mom!) i am enjoying looking at it but its in the mail today!

You know that at certain places like Costco and Archivers you can photocopy your 12 x 12 page? Just an idea so you can have one too!

I think your mom will love it!

I'm so glad I stumbled on your blog tonight! I'm sitting here with a painted yellow canvas and exactly 21 small round pictures from the kids in my son's class. I had them arranged w/ the teacher's initial, in a caterpillar, in a loop. Nothing seemed right. That's it, I'm drawing a tree in the background! Thank you, Thank you! I'll have to post a pic on my blog when it's finished!

Couldn't find an email for you, so hopefully you'll still see this. Wanted to let you know I finished the Class Tree. Thank you so much for the idea! http://aturtleslifeforme.blogspot.com/
