    Mine is the same as the plan I had for 2015: To not do a display. I succumbed to pressure from the neighbours.

    Who knows what I'll get done but currently the list is as follows
    -add a pixel spinner
    -convert existing incandescant spinners to rgb
    -add 2 spiral mini trees
    -add strobes to mega tree
    -add more of the incandescant fairy lights I have lying around as tree wrappers
    -either add a 2nd P10 matrix or enlarge and move the current 1
    -make my driveway arch interactive so that people can change it from the existing sequence
    -animate some faces onto P10 matrix
    -remove last of the 240V wireframe props
    -replace incandescant icicle lights on the fence with warm white leds

    I want to replace my incan snowflakes. I would prefer to do it with pixels but it might just be leds.

    Major project will be to add wireless so that i can add a couple of elements on neighbours houses etc and "glow with our show" capabilities.

    Change all my lights for minleon. Swap out my mega tree to a 5m ray tree with 2 2.5m Ray trees.

    Full size Santa sleigh

    Perfect vacuum forming to convert corflute items into acrylic items.

    I'm thinking of:
    - Replacing dumb mini trees with pixel strip, and adding a couple more trees;
    - Adding a matrix to side fence. Leaning towards P10s but not ruling out pixel strip;
    - Coro elements such as stars and/or presents;
    - Maybe a 2d strip mega tree;
    - FM transmitter and tune to sign;
    - Maybe some singing faces


    Too ambitious?!

    I am still building items for this year..
    But next year I want to redo my pixel mega tree as it was a rush job and I used 2 different brands of string, so the pixels don't line up.
    I also want to do a Ferris wheel. I started planning that this year, but I got side tracked and built a nutcracker instead.

    That is a shame MarcD. Some people just don't know what Christmas is about.
