I stepped out of my comfort this year and went back to basics with my Christmas tree. I'm pretty particular with how my tree looks and I usually use non-traditional decor. I have a fondness for Buffalo Plaid (or Hunter Plaid) and I wanted to incorporate it this year. I bought some inexpensive fabric and cut strips to make plaid ribbons. I even got RED ornaments (I almost never use red at Christmas!) And...I bought a roll of Buffalo Plaid wrapping paper! haha...whaaat?

Thanks to SToP, I made a gif out of my decorating progress last night! I had no idea Google Photos did this! Very cool...had to share! BUT...I forgot that I always have trouble posting videos on here. It never works. What do I need to do?

If it is a GIF, it's just like any image file. Can you upload it in the photo gallery or attach it to your post?
