More exciting news! I was recently asked to be on another design team, this time by Kate Teague, another of my favorite designers. I’m super excited to be working with her, since a lot of her things are my “go to” items that I use on practically everything!
So, you want to see a makeover? No, I didn’t dye my hair purple (again) or cut it all off (again) or even pierce anything (else); this makeover is much cooler.

While my intentions were good, I didn’t really think it through. You know, big family, LDS, lots of procreating… Needless to say, it got outdated pretty quickly. She gave it back to me at one point (2? 3? 6 years ago?) and I’ve had it sitting on my shelf collecting dust since then. Every once in a while I’d think of it, but since someone was ALWAYS pregnant, I had a good excuse to “just wait a few more months” to redo it.

I love how it turned out! I printed out a tag with a quote on it and added it, because I didn’t want the whole thing to look too flat. Here’s a close up:
How cool would this be with ancestors forming the roots? The wheels are spinning!
[I had to add twenty-three names. Twenty-three. And we have three more scheduled before the year ends. Not bad, considering my grandma only had two kids, huh?]
