We changed the layout of our living room this year so a new Christmas tree location needed to be found. The spot we picked had no nearby outlet. I think at this point a lot of people would either pick a new location or start running an extension cord across the room. This is why I'm lucky my husband is so handy.
His solution was pretty simple really. Put in a new electrical oulet behind the tree. This seemed like it would be a lot of work to me, but he had it finished in less than an hour. What a man!
There are not really any updates to our decorations from last year, but I still love them anyway. I'm hoping to make stockings for the fireplace sometime in the next week. If I find the time and motivation I will post photos once they are finished.
