We needed something "from the goody basket" all the time. During card games, before dinner, after dinner...it was always easy to catch someone chewing as they left that corner of the kitchen.
As I was packing for the holiday weekend yesterday, I realized I had my own goody basket, except my goodies are crafts. It is brimming with all the projects I want to work on over the 4th.
The only thing it is missing is a box of Junior Mints!
