Another weekend of Christmas prep. Genny and I worked on the chalkboard tree. I drew the patterns and Genny did the chalk work. We’re doing a “Twelve Days of Christmas” theme on the chalkboard this year.

    Hi Rhonda I would like to purchase a revolving tree stand but I don’t know where to purchase such an item or if I should be looking for a certain size. My tree is 7 feet. I would appreciate your help.

    Mary Jane, we have found the stands for 7′ trees at WalMart. I would expect that most places that sell artificial trees might sell the revolving stands. They are also available on My advice is to buy the best one you can afford.

    FYI, for larger trees up to 9′, you need this one from amazon.
