Posted: October 12, 2011 in D.I.Y, Food, Holiday, Home, Party

While at the dollar store I decided to get crafty

I got a plate and a bowl

and was on my way home to make a dip tray…

all you need to make this

  • 1 plate
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 candle stick holder
  • or vase
  • E-6000 glue
I simply glued the bottom of the candle stick holder…. I used a lot of glue …Let it sit for 2 minutes so it could get sticky/ tacky… Put it on the center of the plate.held it down . Added glue to the top of the candle stick..Let it sit for 2 minutes so it can get sticky/tacky like we did to the bottom 3 minutes prior. Put the bowl on top and hold it down

Summer Road Trip #1: Car Snacks

 3 easy snacks for the road or camp ground.
1) Empty peanut butter jar + celery sicks
Finally a way to have p.b. and celery without the mess. Fill an empty jar with an inch or two of peanut butter and then fill with celery sticks. Kids get a yummy snack without sticky fingers and the car stays free of kid schmeer.
2) Empty sour cream container + empty baby food ja
A quick way to pull off carrots and dressing without the dragging the jar along or buying those expensive to-go dressing singles.
3) Empty 32 oz. yogurt container + single serving yoplait
Easy peasy fruit slices and dip. So yummy straight from the cooler at a camp site or rest stop.
So there you go–easy straight-from-the-recycling-bin solutions for eating well on the road.

Kiss a Mouse

Posted: October 6, 2011 in Christmas, Crafts, D.I.Y, Daycare, Food, Holiday, work
Total Time Needed:
1 Hour

Sweeten up the Christmas tree with a collection of chocolate mice ornaments.

  • Hershey’s Kisses
  • Pink felt
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided carpet tape
  • Fishing line
  • Self-adhesive googly eyes
  • Curling ribbon
  1. Remove the tags from two Hershey’s Kisses. Cut out mouse ears from pink felt, about 3/8-inch high. Using double-sided carpet tape, affix the bottoms of the ears to the flat side of one of the Kisses.
  2. Tape an 8-inch loop of fishing line behind the ears to form a hanger.
  3. With more double-sided carpet tape, join together the two flat sides of the Hershey’s Kisses, with the mouse ears and fishing line loop pointing up. Add a pair of self-adhesive googly eyes.
  4. Slip a tail — a 4-inch piece of curling ribbon — under the foil. Now, see how they run (or disappear) from your tree!
