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 […]
