It is Finally Finished

Yes, that's right. My Christmas tree is done. However, it doesn't quite look like this anymore. Titus and I went out to Wal-Mart this morning to look for the last spool or two of ribbon that I needed to finish off my tree, but we couldn't find any anywhere in the store. So, we went to Michaels instead. And we looked. and we looked. and we looked. We found blue Christmas balls that couldn't be found anywhere else, then, just as I had finally given up all hope, Titus saw another long length of shelves jam packed with ribbon. Brilliant! But...they didn't have what I was looking for. Determined to have ribbon on my tree, I picked up a skinnier blue and a skinnier silver ribbon. These spools had 30ft. ea instead of the 9ft. on the Wal-Mart spools. I almost bought only one...Titus said it should be enough. Thankfully, common sense kicked in and I told Titus that I needed more because this ribbon wasn't as wide as what I already had on the tree. So I grabbed three spools of each color and let me tell you, I am soooo glad that I did! Behold! the finished tree with the Michaels ribbon!

I like this sooo much better!

So, is it better or worse than the original? (I'm asking your opinion, but it's staying like this cause I love it! lol)

It looks dressier with the extra lengths of ribbon. Yeah, I think Tree B wins the prize.

Congrats on your first tree!

I like the second version better also.

Have to say it's not bad for blue and silver.
