Hi all,


Well I have made the commitment to do the Christmas lights and decorations next Christmas, I guess you would see a lot of similar posts this time each year though,


Anywho the plan is to keep it simplish with the intent to engage people to come walk through our yard and enjoy what we have put up, using a combination of lights and wooden cutout style decorations, trying to bring back some of that Christmas feel to out local neighbourhood, it's been very quiet here for sometime now
I would like to make the wooden decorations myself although I will purchase stencilling to do so, combined with lights etc,


A little about me, I'm from Werrington County NSW and enjoy boating and 4wding in our spare time, oh and coffee, I do love a nice coffee.


Anywho I will no doubt be asking plenty of questions and browsing ideas from here forth, (Appolagies for any silly questions, they will happen.)


Cheers
Darren.

G'day Darren. I'm just around the corner in claremont meadows and grew up in werrington downs. I'm not sure if you would have seen my display on myrtle rd, hence the name christmas at the Myrtle.
Anyway welcome aboard

Welcome to ACL, lets hope you keep the commitment and work at it now instead of in November when the learning curve is too much for most. So feel free to ask any questions

If you haven't found it yet, the new revised 2nd addition AusChristmasLighting 101 manual is a great resource for all things RGB and more. :)

The only silly or dumb questions are the ones you don't ask. ;)

Thanks for all the replays folks and Michael (myrtle) your are part of the reason/inspiration for me being here,


I would like to keep my display relatively simple this year........... With the following intent


White icicle lights across the eves, RGB rope lights across the ridge line of the roof and the same style rope lights on my pathways


Then, some automated cutouts on the lawns, a couple with the faces cutout so as people can stick their melons through for a photo, I do enjoy building things as a former aircraft maintenance engineer and fitter/machinist I do like to tinker.


Now here's where I need to ask a few questions and no doubt these questions have been asked before perhaps if someone could link me to a thread it would be greatly appreciated,


I would like to sync all the rope lights so as they change colours simultaneously, I.e. Changing to the same colours at the same times and this is where I require some assistance if possible


Thanks in advance,
Cheers Darren
