Last Minute Gifts: Hanging Treat Box Ornaments

Last Minute Food Gifts: Hanging Treat Boxes at www.happyhourprojects.com

Well, we’re down to about a week left before Christmas (cue the sobbing in the corner, I am NOT ready at ALL).  Are you making your edible gifts this week?  It’s on my to-do list, but I am definitely scaling back this year.  Much fewer baked goods, and more no-bake, easy treats.  Yesterday  I shared […]

Thank you to Staples for sponsoring today’s 2-minute #HandmadeHoliday Christmas card display solution!

You should have seen me when I found these adorable tiny mason jars on my last trip to Target.  There was an audible squee.  Not my shining moment, if anyone witnessed it, but I had to have them. I knew exactly what I wanted to stuff them with.  Christmas is coming and we give a […]
