I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

I've had this idea in my head for quite a while. I always thought this would be cute to use as a favor for an ice cream party. But, alas, none of my children want an ice cream party! So...I decided to turn this idea into a Valentine's gift.

It's a ball of cotton candy on a sugar cone.

I bought the cotton candy from the Dollar Tree. You could probably make 6 balls of cotton candy from one bag.

The sugar cones were from Kroger. You could also use larger waffle cones with a larger "scoop" of cotton candy. It would probably be even cuter than the ones in the regular sugar cones.

The cone-shaped bags were from Hobby Lobby. They were 1.99 for 26. Not bad!

I printed out a little saying on the computer and tied it to the ribbon around the cellophane bag.

I thought of another cheesy saying, "Valentine, My heart is like ICE CREAM. It MELTS for you."

More Valentine's Ideas to come. And most of them were inspired by findings from the Dollar Tree.

I'm linking to Frugal Fridays at The Shabby Nest

  24. I get a lot of ideas there too! I love those triangle bags. They look pretty as home-made cocoa packets and filled with colorful candies too. I used some last spring for baseball coaches with paper doilies and spring flavored oreos.

    What a terrific thing to be swimming around in your pretty lil' head! TFS, you are getting rave reviews all over blog-land. To be able to make 6 with 1 bag...a good thing.

  93. With many transport options, you'll find good local travel agencies in every tourist stop in Vietnam. Competition among service providers works to your advantage, and you can find affordable deals for Getting around Vietnam with just a bit of shopping.

    By Car

    • Going by car is the best and safest way to see Vietnam.
    • Self-drive is unwise.
    • Drivers in Vietnam and Cambodia (and pretty much region-wide) use the horn constantly. Using horn doesn't mean a driver is angry

    By Plane
    Someone said “It's a good idea to fly the longer hops along Vietnam's length: from Hanoi to Hue; from Danang to Nha Trang; and from Nha Trang to Ho Chi Minh City .

    By Train

    The Reunification Express runs the entire length of Vietnam's coast -- from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi, with routes out of Hanoi to the likes of Sapa, Lang Son, and to coastal Haiphong. There are a number of classes, from third-class hard seat to air-conditioned cushioned seat to sleeper, but in general the more comfortable seats are affordable. Be warned that you need to book trains a few days in advance, especially for weekend travel.

    By Bus

    • Local buses depart from stations usually a good distance from the town center.
    • Buses leave only when full -- and full means that everyone is uncomfortable, two to a seat, produce hanging, bags under your feet and, SARS be damned, chickens in bags and on people's laps
    • You often have to negotiate a price with the driver or bus tout
    One good alternative is to buy a ticket with assigned seat on the small air-conditioned minivans that ply most major routes in Vietnam. Ask at any hotel front desk, and expect to pay often double the local bus price (still very affordable) and ride in relative style among locals but without the hassles.
    However, Travelling by motorbikes, motorbike taxis or renting your own motorbike also can be seen around Vietnam, yet please take care. Hire a guide can make your adventures a little more manageable.
