If you are of English descent most likely you have a family crest. My maiden name is Evans. There was always a family crest hanging in our house. I never gave it much thought,it was just there. When I married 100 years ago.(not really it just feels that long, some days even loooooonger lol ) Any who, I learned there was no family crest for my new name. Okay I can live with that, and I did. Until I found Heather's blog. That got my creative juices flowing and decided I would come up with our own personal family crest.
On the wire tree, hangs a charm that represents each of us. Golf clubs for hubby. Music note for son. Shoe for daughter. Me, I get the scissors. At the bottom is a dog. The hearts are for our love for each other.
This was fun. Come up with your own family crest. If you don't sew use paper and glue. I usually work in a neutral pallet. For another idea check out Maija's
