Family Reunion Family Tree Poster
I love a good Family Tree project--and I've made several! So, when my grandmother asked me to make a Family Tree poster to identify the family members & their relationships to each other for our family reunion weekend celebrating their 65th anniversary and my grandfather's 90th birthday, I was happy to oblige.
The large 36" x 24" poster ended up being quite the conversation piece for the celebration weekend as we all re-introduced ourselves to each other and met several new family members that weren't a part of the family yet 15 years ago, the last time we were all together!
Family & friends can read all about the weekend here (log-in to view):

This isn't the first time I've made an artistic rendering of our family tree for an event.
For my grandmother's 80th birthday about seven years ago, I made a scrapbook-y photo-version, showing all their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, which is currently displayed at their house (and is now significantly out-dated!):
And in my own home, we have a paper and canvas Family Tree in our entryway that I made with watercolor paint, cardstock and canvas:
See! Told ya. I love a good family tree project. :)
