How To Make A Party Tray To Go at www.happyhourprojects.com

This post is sponsored by Kellogg’s. My mom does a lot for me.  It’s mostly the typical “grandma” stuff – watching the kids, helping with a load of laundry or two every so often – but it’s really appreciated.  I don’t have a lot of opportunity to return the favor because she just doesn’t need that […]

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 […]
