Some people are so hard to shop for. My mom is one of these people. This year, for her birthday, she asked for two Barbie outfits and a new Lego set so she could play with my kids. Well, that's great, Mom, but I'd like to give you something.
After some thought, I decided to give her a family tree of some sort. I really want to do a tree with both branches and roots, so I could show her parents and grandparents as well as her children and grandchildren, but I couldn't come up with a design I really liked.
So instead, I came up with my own version of this amazing, hand cut family tree that I saw on Etsy. I do not hand cut things, so I spent about two hours coming up with an image in Silhouette Studio. It was a bit of a pain to cut - my blade is a little dull so I used a brand new mat to improve the chances of it cutting well, but then it was really hard to pull off the mat in one piece.
But I think it turned out really well, don't you?
