I put my tree up this year the Sunday before Thanksgiving. What, too soon you think? I've been quite pleased with that decision so far. So here is this year's rendition of the tree:
Every year my tree is a little different. Ok, some years it is a lot different - I have a husband that is patient with my Christmas tree love. I'm also a logophile (word lover), so that played into this year's theme.
The whole thing started from a spool of ribbon I found on sale. I knew my kids would love this ribbon, and they do. It set the tone for a slightly more whimsical tree than recent years. It also dictated the green, red and gold color scheme - not surprising colors for a Christmas tree.
I made the bow - googled how to do it, watched a couple videos and voila. It was easy.
I added the red spikey branch things for drama. My tree always has to have a little drama. Just to be clear, I like drama in my tree and novels, but notsomuch in my relationships.
OK, your turn. What's your tree style? I'd love to see pics of your tree. If you've posted photos online please tell me how to get there!
