Well, I spent the cold and snowy weekend snuggled up at home, so thought I would put the Christmas Tree up. Well I'm proud of my tree - sorry to those who like the real thing, but mine is a fake one and its black - yep black (I've had it for around 7 years now and I LOVE it!) I've always decorated it with crystal sparkly decs last year I added some purple baubles as I have that accent colour in the front room. Well the tree went up lovely and looks sooooo sparkly (well it should do there are 400 lights on it - yes you read that right 400!). Now my problem is trying to get a good photo of it! You will laugh when you see the photo below as its the "middle section" of my tree! I wanted to take it in "TV" (time value) so that you get the effect of the glistening lights and well, I don't have a tripod and definitely dont have a steady enough hand to hold it for a long exposure so I put my camera on my coffee table and hence that is why I could only get in the middle section as my front room is not big enough for me to move the coffee table back any further!!!!!!!! I'm still not sure that this photo does my tree any justice at all - but thought I would post it anyway.
I'm going to take some photos of the decorations close up and post those up later (bet you can't wait!!!!)
I do love Christmas because - as you know my absolute love of anything sparkly.
Has anyone else put up their tree yet? Love to see some of your pictures!
Take care everyone and happy crafting.
