THREE:  The kids would have fun with this one: some simple poses from the kids, camera, printer, laminator, hole punch, string and you are done

FOUR:  This calendar is classy and simple:  we have even created a template for you to use (visit our For You page to download), just print each month and add your photos.  I love the idea of framing the current month.

FIVE:  Peppermint bark is simple to make and delicious as well.  Here is a link to 3 variations of Christmas Crack.

SIX:  Cash or vouchers are always on someone’s list.  This creative way to dish it up made me laugh out loud, although our crazy coloured currency might make it look odd.
