How To Give a Living Locket Gift at www.happyhourprojects.com

So as much as I love personalized lockets – because they are personal – it can be a really hard gift to give to someone you don’t know really, really well.  I mean, my locket has all kinds of details about me inside.  But for most of my friends, there’s really only one or two […]
