family tree

a few years back my sister-in-law Laura bought a family tree kit from Red Envelope for my mother-in-law (pictured). i have always admired this family tree-- it has such a simple, clean look to it. so when i was asked to re-create the tree for encrichment night i was pretty excited! i thought it would be simple but it has proved to be a little more time consuming then i had anticipated. my super talented husband made a template for the tree and the leaves while i shopped for paper and did the cutting and tracing. tonight is the big night and luckily the 45 kits are prepared and ready to go. now comes the really hard part- teaching the class. i am not a fan of public speaking. wish me luck!

i thought i was going to be able to come tonight but can't because patrick had a conference call come up and won't be home till after 8. will you please save a kit for me and i'll pay you later? i'm so excited about this! (didn't know until this post that YOU were the one in charge of the class, though!)

That's so awesome! Want to send that template my direction? You should sell kits like that on Etsy. I bet they'd sell really well.

If there are any left, let me know. They'd make great gifts for a couple family members.

I recently found your blog this week and am loving your outlook on life, creativeness, and your writing. Is there anyway you could post the template your husband made up for this project?? It would be a FANTASTIC project to do in my ward (I'm the Enrichment counselor).

Hey! New watcher here! Great blog! Found you through OnePrettyThing.com This is awesome! I would love a copy of the template used for this if it's available! What a great gift to pass down! I'm glad you took the time to make and post! =D Do you mind if I add your link to my "Other Cooks in the Kitchen" links section?

I found your blog because the kitchen idea was linked from another blog. Now I'm in love with that kitchen. I'd love to have the template for this family tree if you're sharing.

Thank you so much for providing these templates! I just finished my tree and have pictures posted on my blog. I changed the layout to fit our needs; ours is a current tree vs. one of past ancestors. Thanks again!
