    Thank you for all you kind words everyone I know that I said in an earlier post that I will not start decorating until Nov 1st. The Halloween party was great and the morning after my wife and I started to take down the Halloween decorations in our condo. We finished ahead of schedule so I dragged out all of 20 Rubbermaid bins of decorations and started setting up the crystal tree.

    Progress report:

    I am sorry for such a long post but I know there are other extreme decorators out there that would like to know the details. For everyone else.. Yes I know I am nuts

    After 7 hours of work the tree has been put together, the stand has been reinforced and checked. I spent hours going through all 3000 mini lights and replaced 24 dead bulbs. I have been able to set up 1200 lights. The next step will be to set up an additional 800 lights that weaved in and out of the branches starting from about 12inches into the tree and then out to each tip. These light sets will support about 30 ornamotors. I will have to make sure that ornamotors are secured and spaced throughout the tree. The final step will be to wire the outer branches with 1000 random twinkling lights. I will also have to try and hide the wires under the branches with twisty ties.

    I wire the tree 3 separate ways so that I can change the look of the tree from twinkle only to
    core to tips with ornamotors etc.

    If I can get some quality time in the next few days and keep focused, I should be ready to start decorating by some point this coming weekend.

    I promise lots of detailed pictures

    This tree has become a labour of love

    Is she amazed and appreciative or does she think you're nuts?

    No MW she thinks I am an elf that escaped from the north pole ( She is sitting next to me and I am trying to obscure her view of what I am typing ) She took this picture a year or two ago ( she cannot remember ) of a 1 foot by 1 foot section of the crystal tree and the first thing out of her mouth is "your nuts" and it stuck
    I have no idea what she is talking about
