The Tree is Up

We put the tree up yesterday.  This is a big one.  My ceilings are 12 feet high.  This is the latest my tree has gone up in  a long time. I seem to be so far behind this year.  My husband always does the lights so I left him to it and went to bed last night.
 When I came downstairs this morning, I flipped the light switch and this is what I saw.

Now it is time for me to do the rest.

I've been working on these tags/ornaments.  I like to make as much homemade stuff as I can for Christmas so this year I decided to make tags.  I saw these on pinterest and thought they would be fun to try.

All you do is buy craft clay from Michael's, cut it in any shape you want, impress it however you like and then bake it until it hardens. 

Then you can paint them or leave them plain and add ribbon or twine.  You can attach them to presents and then the recipient can hang them on the tree after they open their present.
