A most beautiful family tree

Thank you SO much for all the lovely comments and messages about my baby news! It's so lovely to be able to finally talk about it. :) It's funny, perhaps when you are starting your own family, it makes you think more about your own history and family, so when an email came in from Canadian illustrator Eva Juliet, her work really struck a chord.

Eva creates personalised family trees, but via the most beautifully illustrated piece of artwork - a far cry from your usual spider drawing of a family tree! I think everyone is at least a bit interested in their family history so there are so many gift options for these - a big birthday, mother or fathers day, or even for a new baby - so they can grow up aware of their family background...

There's three different design options to choose from, which one do you like best?!

  4. These are SO pretty! Thanks for the tip. I love the first bunch of olive branches - such a beautiful idea.

    Last summer my boyfriend's great great Auntie celebrated her 90th birthday and they had a family tree that spanned a whole wall up for the party!
