This week Ben and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary! I can’t quite believe how far we have come in the last 18 years – we were teenagers when we got married and now we have teenagers of our own. I wanted to make a family tree for our wall. I am a family historian who doesn’t have a family tree on display!

I have looked before for trees that I would be happy to display on our wall but none of them were quite right. So I installed a design program on my computer and spent a few days getting to grips with it so I could design my own. I designed this fan chart, showing Ben’s family on the left and mine on the right. In the middle is the temple where we were married. I am really happy with how it looks so I have decided that while I study Genealogy at University, I will sell these on Etsy. I can even offer my services to research families to complete this 5 generation chart!!

This is the only family tree in our Etsy shop so far, I plan to design others and I have lots of ideas going round my head. I’m going to do my best to put them onto paper in the next few days. If you want to visit our Etsy shop, you can follow this link, or go to Etsy and search for Ben and Clare.
