Candy Canes!

I follow quite a few baking and craft blogs and one of my favorites is, 
Mom on Timeout
And she had a post last week titled, 

17 Candy Cane Recipes and Crafts

Find it here

Anyway, one of the crafts were these adorable candy sleighs that were featured on 
Ellyn's Place

And I had to try them. They are quite simple to make and you can customize them any way you like.
Here are the two I have put together so far.

Let it Snow!

Instead of the usual red and green, I love blue and white for Christmas colors. They remind me of snowflakes and snowmen, which here in sunny southern CA we don't see too often. So I've put together a few crafts, gift bags, and ornaments in these two colors. Hope you enjoy them.

Wine or Sparkling Cider gift bag.

Gift totes to fill with whatever!
Purchased gift bag with plastic canvas topper.

And a snowman scene made from plastic canvas and decorated with items from the dollar store.

What are your favorite Christmas colors?
