2013 Family Christmas Tree
Every year we get a live 7' tree that is placed in the front window of our living room. This year, I just haven't been able to find the energy to go get a tree, put the lights on, and then get all the ornaments out of our garage. I just don't like it when Thanksgiving is so late. It throws me off balance.
I was in Target last week and saw a 4-1/2' pre-lit artificial tree, on sale. I knew I could work with that. Over the past few years, I've folded a lot of origami. I realized that for the last two years I've always had a separate origami tree to show off things I've made. Well, this year, the family tree is smaller, not in the front window but sitting in a corner, and it is completely covered with handmade origami ornaments. I love it. The stress of getting the bigger tree ready has now left me and I'm happy with our little, charming tree.
Also, I never realized that if you stick your tree in a corner, you don't have to decorate the back!
