Christmas tree over the years

I’m putting Christmas decor away and I am looking at items thinking, is this even worth me keeping and storing for another year, or should I give it to a friend and let things go. Are you doing the same?

I’ve had these images of our Christmas tree over the years and had hoped to share them in a post but I was so busy with parties and well, never got around to it.

Well, why not now haha.

I used everything I had, wood beads, didn't tuck in my ribbon just swirled it.
Pretty much the same as the year before only changed the way I wrapped the Christmas presents!

I bought so much more garland this year and I’m wondering where or how we’re going to store it in the photo studio which is now just back to storage. Anyway, it’s what it is! We don’t really have a closed garage for storage so this is our storage. I bought a lot of extra plastic storage bags to put the garland away. 

Also, a technique was me just completely shoving it in the bag without disassembling it, battery lights and all, haha! I figure I’ll be spending time putting it up anyway so we will see if next year it will even save me time or not!
