I thought I would show you a picture of our tree. I don't have as many ornaments on it as I should because of the kitten. She has that tree constantly shaking. I am hoping to find some of those sparkly swirls to poke in through out the tree.
We can't keep our light strands doing the same function. So one strand might be blinking, one fading in and out and one on, etc. Not too bad in person, just hard to capture in pictures.
Here is a Santa ornament I painted back in 1990.
Here is an angel I made.
We are hoping to find a slim, pre-lit tree this year to take the place of this one. It is really fat at the bottom and we have it shoved back in that corner. Don't look too closely at the bottom. The kitten has been reeking havoc with the red beaded strands.
