We scaled back on decking the halls this year since we are going to be leaving for vacation and won’t be home for the holidays. I did still put up the tree, though, and snapped the obligatory “This is what the place looked like in 2008″ pics. Then, well past the hour I ought to have been sleeping, I was instead playing around with homemade filters. I cut out some star, heart, pine cone and diamond shapes and then moved on to experimenting with cake decorating tips to some interesting effects.
