Welcome to Bodhi Tree Greetings. I create greeting cards that celebrate families in all forms.
The Bodhi Tree, the tree under which the Buddha is said to have achieved enlightenment, was a Sacred Fig (Ficus religiosa). I chose this symbol for two reasons: for its association with happiness and prosperity in Hindu and Buddhist culture, and because of the Sacred Fig's unusual ability to grow offshoots of its branches down to the ground, where they turn into roots, creating whole new trees. I felt that this image was a beautiful alternative to the standard family tree, since it more accurately symbolizes the way the trees of our unique blended families are connected in the branches.
I specialize in cards for non-traditional families, including blended families/stepfamilies, same-sex couples/parents, and adoptive/foster families. I hope you enjoy them!
