Hi I’m Mique. I live in the Los Angeles area with my 3 kids and husband. I love sharing my passion for creativity daily on 30days. I also co-owns the Queen Bee Market, a San Diego based handmade market.


I wanted to share a super simple project that can be used at the holidays or any time of the year: bread in a decorated can

Needed for this cute project:

Self explanatory but just in case: using the Chasing Fireflies post as a guide, I baked bread in a can. When I made these last, I used Chasing Fireflies recipe for banana bread but would love to try zucchini bread or my favorite favorite favorite bread Almond Poppyseed from Our Best Bites. mmmmmm. I then cut out fun cardstock and taped it around the can. Then for the picture above, I used the yellow tag and twine to add my note. BUT I made a cute little printable that can be used for the holidays. Just download and print. OR there’s another version that could be used as a thank you all year long.

about mique: Mique (as in Mickey) started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, She has now realized that she’ll never check them all off her list. When she’s not creating, she loves spending time with family & friends, and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.
