not sure if this has been done before but i thought it would be fun to start up a picture trail of all our christmas trees!

if you email me on
with your mumsnet username so i can title your piccy!

for everyone to view i have set up this

all entrys to be in by the 24th (as i see that few have mentioned thats when they get there tree).

there will be 3 catagories

FUNKY AND MODERN (if thats your style and why not!wink)

TRADITIONAL (for the lovely golds reds etc)

FUN (ie those whos lo are old enough to help and take charge!)

i will send a bar of choccy to all winners- nothing much i'm afraid as i am rather skint! but thought this would be fun?

i will delete all emails and will not share address's with anyone unless user gives consent.

hope that you want to join me!

Fab idea! I'm in, well at least I will be when I get my tree up!

excellent! Glad you think so! smile just putting finishing touches to mine!

Oh cute, I like it! Excellent idea. I'll be a very late entrant wink

Bit of a thicko when it comes to computers though, do I just send you my picture as an attachment on an e-mail?

Santasmissyontheside Fri 07-Dec-07 20:31:34

yes please grin

we got our today and thats the latest i have ever done it! lovely idea to get xmas eve though

Must admit, I can't really be arsed this year! We usually do it the weekend before Xmas and the rest of the decs are usually up by now. My mindees love seeing all the things I put out, but I've got jury service for the whole of Xmas fortnight, so I'm a bit not bothered really. I like to draw a line under 'stuff' and then get on with Christmas, but I can't because I'll be in court every day. sad This thread has spurred me on, to make the effort though, so thankyou.

oh good! bloody hell what a time to have jury service!!

come on people!!!

I am trying to get a good picture of mine! Its either too dark or too light to see the lights on it!

bonkerzaboutxmas Fri 07-Dec-07 22:18:24

will email a pic of ours but not sure what catagory it would fall into. Can you do a catagory entitled.......THREW TOGETHER FOR THE KIDS tree???????

TinyTimLivesinVictorianSqualor Fri 07-Dec-07 22:19:58

thats the fun one is it not??

bonkerzaboutxmas Fri 07-Dec-07 22:24:10

Probably except after 20 minutes of annoying helping me with it i found them other boring more important jobs to do FAR FAR away from the tree!!!

SnowMuchToBits Fri 07-Dec-07 22:27:06

Will probably enter my --old-fashioned-- traditional tree, but not until after 17th (when I receive it,) as is a real droppy-needle type tree!

SnowMuchToBits Fri 07-Dec-07 22:28:46

I meant old - fashioned traditional tree

Sent pics.grin

Santasmissyontheside Fri 07-Dec-07 23:05:27
