Green, kinda like a Christmas tree, now all you have to do is add decorations to it and you will be decorated every where you go. Good luck with your cast and hope all goes well.

I don't normally decorate for Thanksgiving and will not start on Christmas until after Thanksgiving. Not sure what all I will pull out and put up for Christmas besides the tree and things for the tree.

Is that a wrapping over the cast? Looks so much different than the blue when Tyler had a cast on his leg last year. His looked like blue plaster of paris. I like the color of green you picked.

it's some kind of wrap material, he got it wet and wrapped it, then it sets hardened when it dried, which only took a couple of minutes. he actually picked the color for me....said it was because i work for the forestry lol

What a lovely color! And a fine way to celebrate the holidays! What did you do? Break your arm? Hope it heals fast though....and I have started going through my decorations with the intent of giving some to good will or salvation army and share some of the too many I have! Now all you have to do with your cast is hang some holly off the end and you will be complete~!

i'll have to keep the holly in mind lol, i injured it back in april on the job, and mri and mra isn't showing whatever the problem is, so the doc is trying complete immobilization, if this does't get it better than the next step is surgery. i'm thinking that if i start now.........i'll have the house decorated by dec. lol

Oh my - that is just horrible!!! I had a removable split on my wrist for a week over the summer and that was awful - I couldn't do anything!!! How are you coping? Hope you have loads of help. As for the early decorating - no, haven't done a thing yet and don't intend to do much really - we are going away for the Christmas week so not much point in doing loads of decorations here - although will probably put up the tree closer to the time... Decemeber some time I guess. Violetdreams

luckily it's my left wrist and i'm right handed. i started out with a removable splint (in mid-april), have had 3 different types of those, now full cast. i'm getting really good at doing things one-handed,lol. and my s/o is great help, he even put my hair up in a ponytail for me. i'll be gone christmas week too, but i'll have all the decorations up by weekend after thanksgiving, since my s/o won't be able to go with me, and his daughter will be here for christmas.

that's a good idea, for him to help. normally my oldest daughter is here for thanksgiving and she helps me. but she won't be coming up this year, so probably won't do as much outside. my s/o always goes with me to pick out a tree, then i do all the decorating, but this year i'm sure he'll help me more because of the cast.
