BY HAND Gift Guides: BUILD. A story that led By Hand magazine to Lee Valley via an offline friend and then validated by Ron Swanson. Lee Valley is catalog store that I’ve loved since high school (which was, ahem, pre-internet shopping era).

Munchkin Munchies: Peppermint Stick Platter. I love this, but I suspect the whole platter would melt quickly in our humidity. I would have to seal it with something food safe and right about there it sounds like too much work.

    I wish I could justify doing the gingerbread block party. I’m nowhere near the location, but it looks like a ton of fun!

    Me too, I’m so impressed with the style!

    Thanks for the shout out with the peppermint platter! :) It actually starts out minimally sticky, but dries out substantially in a few days.
    I LOVE your 3-D Christmas trees!

    Sue – I’ll give it a try! It’s (endlessly) raining here so it’s a good stress test :)

    I can’t believe you knew about Lee Valley and never told us!! ;) I saw that on By Hand and was instantly smitten with everything on there.
