I like the idea - now decorate the rest of the tree.

Baubles, "tinsel" (or at least zig-zag chains), the works.  Come on.  I'm waiting.

Cool, but it seems like it could be made stronger.
Killer~SafeCracker (author)  Oblivitus5 years ago
Yes, I had it more filled in before, but it didn't look as good. Odd enough
All right, I just try to critique when I make a comment.
Killer~SafeCracker (author)  Oblivitus5 years ago
Yeah, that's fine. Oh yeah, you need to send viccie the results of your judging.
It's strong enough for the job - if it was much bigger it would be heavy enough to bend many trees.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them,

Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

~ Linus - Charlie Brown Christmas

Just felt like that needed saying :-)

Good job on the star! Neat idea - I wouldn't have thought of it!

Ha Ha. Thanks.
