Let the fun begin!

Christmas Lights Tangled

I had only planned on taking a short break from the fun that is Christmas lights, but that turned into 6 months! Where has the time gone? Now that I am behind the curve, I guess I better get it in gear and do something.


New lights for 2011

I have spent most of the last week inventorying the lights that I acquired from last season’s after Christmas sales.  You can’t beat getting lights at 1/3 to half the cost of retail!

New for the 2011 display

I am planning on having at least one Mega Tree in this year’s design. Also, I am working on having the whole display be capable of dimming, not just on and off.
