Unicorn Wood Burned Kitchen Utensils

Wood Burned Unicorn Kitchen Utensils at www.happyhourprojects.com

Oh, I totally DID make wooden unicorn spoons.  Today’s project isn’t anything earth-shattering – after all, I didn’t invent wood burned kitchen utensils, and I didn’t invent the dot-art that’s everywhere right now.  I didn’t even invent unicorns (although that would have been AWESOME if I had) but I DID put them all together in […]

New Orleans Inspired Muffuletta Dip at www.happyhourprojects.com

With Mardi Gras wrapping up today, I though a couple of recipes inspired by the flavors of New Orleans would be fun to share!  Once a year, I start getting hungry for the New Orleans classic: the Muffuletta.  It’s a huge sandwich with olive salad, salami, ham and cheeses.  But this year, I put a […]

Valentine’s Day s nearly here, and with that comes all things chocolate.  Or, at least in my house.  I can’t speak for every woman out there, but it’s good for a large percentage of the ones I know: the way to her heart is, in fact, chocolate.  Are we on the same page?  Good – […]

How to Make Personalized Serving Utensils

Hand Stamped Canape Knife at www.happyhourprojects.com

I had so much fun with today’s idea, guys.  It was one of those light bulb ideas after having seen some serving utensils where you could add your own beads – I picked up a canape knife knowing I wanted to do something with it, but not quite sure of what.  I saw some new […]
