Squint Now - Thank Me Later

I don't even know where to start with this one.

Don't laugh, OK?  Try it then let me know if it works for you too.

There have been some things, over the years, tricks or whatever you want to call them that I've done to help me....figure things out when decorating.  This one trick is probably the most simple and  unconventional thing ever.  I squint.  Squint?  Yup ....squint.

When adding lights to any of my Christmas decorating and wanting to make sure there are no bare spots, I SQUINT!!  That's right.  Squint.

When you squint all the lights will become blurry and you"ll be able to see if you've got any bare spots.  Crazy I know....but it works!

Once you've decided where the bare spots are, you can adjust your lighting where necessary.

Simple, but it works.



  1. I squint too ;) Great to see you posting again! Ger x

  2. I had never thought of that - thanks for the tip.
    I have "squinted" at lights in shops to try and get an idea of how they may look as displays are often in areas of the store that are too brightly lit to give a good effect. I'll now give it a go when decorating the tree etc.

  3. Ha, ha - ROFL here - that is exactly what I do as well! And I thought I was the only one who was crackers, but it certainly does work a treat!
