    I agree with NO Gary, the tree looks great as it is with all the contributions made by members. What would be interesting is to see how members decorated the tree at home for themselves.

    Now that's an idea, stygg.

    We've photographed ours before so I'll put a thread up in a week for "before" and "after everyone's torn open their presents".

    And when I get time, I'd like to post a large version of the tree with a signature crediting the group, done in fancy text and all that stuff.

    I did that last year.

    Well, due to various circumstances this year I won't have a real xmas tree...this virtual TG tree trimming was it. BUT I can share a tree from a previous year which stood in the corner of our den. The tiger painting on the wall is one I painted on canvas years ago (24" x 36").
    I hope you all enjoy the pic.

    Glorious, Maya.

    We haven't had a "real tree" in years. We have a fairly realistic one that assembles in sections. After decades of dragging a dead tree into the house, and then dragging it out for trash pickup and then enjoying pine needles on the carpet the rest of the year...I really don't mean to sound like a humbug! If you're getting a fresh cut, the Douglas Firs are terrific.

    We just are looking back at 40 (50, too), and the lugging done by the two of us became too much. Besides, the roof on our Town & Country was developing a gulley.

    The trees we've had were all artificial, Gare, the one pictured was a 7 foot tall pencil-style tree (only the trunk was wooden with bark on it) and all in one piece. Paul is allergic to real trees indoors, so the last "real" xmas tree I was around was one my parents put up when I was about 6 years old.

    The grandkids like the group tree best so we've made a cardboard cutout of this one I did with the baubles and trinkets and all the great things they posted and stood it in the corner. Only joking, still not finished our tree yet, they keep chopping and changing where what should go where on the tree. Will post when they finally make up their minds.

    That's a well-balanced and beautiful arrangement, Stygg! Oh, and I thought something was missing from the other tree -- Rudolf the Reindeer! That's really cute standing on the present. The new ornaments look perfect and I like the resizing of various ones.

    Thankyou Crow nice Christmas picture you posted ...and Gare(I wouldn't have taken offense to your upside-down notion)

    The tree is looking lovely let me know when it's all done, I have been chatting on Facebook on my site VS Design Tech about Talkgraphics forum and talented members and the uses of Xara. I want to repost it on there for 'guess which one I made'...lol
