“quick holiday cheer on the cheap!“
Available everywhere, colourful, cheap and cheerful, candy canes are for more than just eating. Why not incorporate them in a vase or add one to a few houseplants? There is probably no easier or instant Christmas decor than grabbing a whole fistful and jamming them in a vase for the coffee table or as a fun (and inexpensive) centrepiece for the dining table!

Another made-with-love-by-mom Birthday cake. My cakes are not even close to being professional looking but they usually taste good and kids always seem to love it when there is a theme and free toys on top. It’s the cake version of a Happy Meal! I picked up the pack of horses at La Boutique Du Dollar (a discount shop) for $1.49.
I really like how the sliced Rice Krispie squares turned out (I used the individually wrapped kind by Kelloggs). They kinda look like bales of hay! First, I sliced the squares in half (width wise) to make skinny Rice Krispie squares. Then I cut them into two strips per square. Not only do they stick to the cake better when they are thinner, but you will use 7 Rice Krispies instead of 14!
Happy Birthday Clo!
