A few years ago I created a fairly artistic family names Christmas tree and this year I thought I would update it. I was a little surprised by how many new names I needed to add, but I was totally unprepared for how difficult it was to add those new names and still manage a clean looking Christmas tree. I wasn’t sure about sharing the result, but then I thought about real family trees, how all family trees have the odd branch that sort of sticks out a bit or gives you a lot of trouble (either researching them or the people themselves, I’m not judging). It made me look at my new family names Christmas tree in a new light and I rather like it now, it’s not mass-produced, it’s one of a kind just like my family.
Happy Holidays everyone.
