oh my stars!





Summer is full of family get-togethers and family reunions. At each one, Lucy gets excited about playing with cousins. And after each one, we spend a lot of time explaining how those cousins are related to us. I thought it would be fun to put it all together in a visual way, something to point at as we explain and talk about families.



It turned into this wonky, wacky family tree with hubby and I at the center and branching out from there. Then it turned into a solar system, it just happened. And THEN it turned into something that would look great hanging on a wall.



Shameless etsy plug, I've now made it available in my etsy shop! I will make a custom chart just for you and your fam. Check it out here.

Yes please!! What a fun family Christmas present... to us. And maybe if I'm nice, to others as well!

You're just amazing!

Jul--this is amazing! I love how your ideas grow into something totally their own. My sister-in-law is expecting a baby girl in November (finally a girl!!), and this would be such a fun way to welcome her to our world of boys.
