It's March already and I've realised that what I've been missing these past months is taking over the dining room table with my paints and actually creating new artworks.

I have so many ideas for new types of family trees for celebrating newborns, anniversaries, wedding guestbook blanks and more but I need to make a decision and get started!

A year ago a customer sent me a printout of their family tree on an ancestry wheel/fan chart.  These charts are usually very plain but I want to create a really pretty fan chart using foliage in place of the lines between the names.

I'm considering which plant to base it on and wondering whether a vine of some kind may work.... or maybe a winding clematis...

anyway, I thought that if I put my idea in writing here then I will be obliged to finally get those pencils out and make a start!
