Seeing as though this coming Friday is already Black Friday (wow), which I suppose many would call the “official kick-off” to holiday shopping, I figured that now would be a perfect time to bring you all this amazing giveaway.
Back in August, I shared some of the beautiful work from my friend, Christina, who has her own design website, christinanorrisdesigns. You’ve already seen her designs, not only on canvas, but also at Sarah’s bridal shower. Her talents are just incredible.
After talking with Christina a few weeks ago, she told me that this time of the year tends to be her busiest for family trees, as people are using them as holiday gifts. She often has clients purchase them for anyone from their babysitter, employees and family or friends.
One type of family tree that Christina does is the traditional style. It has just one tree with the family name and year of marriage.
Another style family tree that Christina creates includes one tree for each member of the family, which is then placed with the family name and wedding year below.
This is the perfect kind of style for those who have a larger family with children.
In addition to the family trees, you’ve also seen that Christina does traditional couple trees, such as the one seen below. This can include anything from the couple’s initials, to a special date (engagement, marriage, etc.), to full names.
One of the coolest thing about Christina’s designs, however, is that she loves the challenge of thinking outside the box. She has created many trees to cater to a specific theme for a couple or family that has a particular love or interest. She’s also designed couple trees to include specific seasons and holidays, such as this Halloween-themed tree.
When I tell you that Christina can do it all, she seriously can do it all. She has even had a bride ask her to paint one of her trees for her wedding program cover and wanted her to include a likeliness of their dog at the base of the tree. Amazing!
So with the holidays right around the corner, wouldn’t this be a perfect gift for somebody in your family? Maybe a close friend? If so, then definitely be sure to contact Christina. You still have time to order before Christmas!
**Note from Christina:
As long as the winner contacts me by Monday December 5th I will guarantee their order for Christmas. I will be taking Christmas orders with regular charges through December 5th. Anything placed after December 5th will have a rush order fee. However I can not take any orders for Christmas after the 18th.
Well, Christina has once again, generously offered up another STSL giveaway…
