Nabors Family Crest

Always a fan of Aaron Draplin, thanks for a great class.

I did a bit of family crest research. My maiden name was Day, so I looked for reference to both families.


I liked the color scheme, but was feeling uninspired to create my own family crest. I made a list of things my husband and I like to do, things we do with our families, etc. We're both from Michigan, but met in Texas, so I considered tying in these states. We also really love our boxer, so I obviously needed to include him. These are some initial sketches:


I liked the patterns I saw in some of the family crest research I did. Since we enjoy camping (even though we get rained on consistently) I made a pattern out of tent icons for the outer portions of the crest. I created a geometric representation of our dog & had fun creating laurels too. Below are two versions of the crest, but I like the last one the best.

Feedback & criticism are, of course, welcome.
