1. Mom - family tree (this is the coolest thing I've ever seen) I saw it in a catalog and loved it, but didn't have $100 for it. So I'm making my own. Its really quite easy.
My mom has made a family tree, but it's a bit different from your link. She bought a small fake Christmas tree and printed family pics spanning several generations in the "index" size. I think it prints about 35 to a page. They're tiny. She made flat "ornaments" from sticky foamie (I think) and attached the pic to the foamie. Printing the pics in the index size also prints whatever you name the picture. It's a real conversation piece, as it gets everyone talking about the people and events in the pics! (My family was lucky enough to have my extremely tech savvy uncle take all my gma's old pics and digitize them for her b-day. Also, my mom has digitized my gpa's slides.)
It's a really cool project and easy to do and fun to look at. This one seems to only come out at Christmas, for some reason, but I think you could easily have it out year round. The one in your link is a lot more year round friendly, though.
