The perfect family tree is a Nike family tree, and it suits my family well as each member's personality is captured with color, textures, and a Nike shoe specific to their their persona! It was a fun gift for each member to hang on their walls.
There are 6 people in my family, and at gatherings our shoes all end up in a pile on the floor. I saw the shoes sitting there and my brain started organizing them into shapes and I began sketching it out and realized they form a perfect tree, and an even better Christmas tree. Thus the project began.
