Need ideas for Thanksgiving? How about something for your guests or to take over if you are the guest.
Nothing like something personalized to show someone that you are thankful for having them in your life.

I call them yum jars because they pack just the right amount of yummy in a mason jar. Also they are perfect to give away with a personal message.
