It has been a while

I miss ya’ll.

It started out with me just being too busy to come and post. Between home life, dealing with my  hubby,my  kid, the kids sports, the kids school events, my school, and work I just had no time.

Then, (deep sigh) I had a death in my family. My oldest brother got killed 😦 D=, it happened the day after my 30th birthday on black Friday, which was the day before his daughter 11th birthday...SIGH .. So, November and December were not my months.

So, I have been pretty busy. I am apologizing, I have a lot of great post just like my old page..

Dip Tray

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
PLEASE LET IT SIT… I RAN OUTSIDE TO SHOW MY HUSBAND…. 
BAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM 
IT DROPPED AND I HAD TO REDO IT… LOL

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.

Materials
  • Hershey’s Kisses
  • Pink felt
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided carpet tape
  • Fishing line
  • Self-adhesive googly eyes
  • Curling ribbon
Instructions
  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!

Snowman Gift

Posted: October 6, 2011 in Christmas, Crafts, Daycare, Food, Holiday

Ok…. My kids are getting older and don’t like doing crafts anymore so I will make my daycare kids 🙂 Their parents will love them !

1. Start with a Half Pint Canning Jar.  (these are the Better Homes & Gardens Brand from Wal-Mart…I love the top)
2. Fill it with Mini-Marshmallows

3. Make the Brim of the Hat using Black Paper or Fabric (it should be stiff though, so use Cardstock or Construction Paper or Felt) The most difficult part of this whole project…sizing the brim.  Basically it’s a circle with a center Circle cut out of the middle that just fits over the open rim of the jar but llisn’t big enough that once you slip it over the, it will be flimsy.  So just slightly small than the lid cover.
Different jars will have different openings, so once you find that perfect balance, just use that as your pattern!

4. Cut a piece of black ribbon to wrap around the lid of the jar…to complete the top-hat look.

5. Give that man a face!  I used Puffy Paints, but regular acrylic craft paint works too.

6. You can stop here if you’d like.  And gift your little snowman with a couple bags of hot chocolate.  Everything up to this step, including ALL materials cost me ~$2.50 per gift set to make 12.

7. Thanks to my new friend, Amy…there can be MORE to this Snowman…take another jar and fill it with Hot Cocoa Mix.  (I didn’t have a large jar, so I used the individual serving packets.  It fits 5 servings)

8. Hot glue some buttons on it…and Hot Glue your Marshmallow Jar to the top of the Cocoa jar.

9. Use up some ribbon or Scrap Fabric for the scarf! (I just cut the ends for “fringe”)

***EXTRA BONUS TIP:  adding a third jar to the bottom full of peppermint candies.  Alas, there’s no running to the store while I’m blogging during naptime, so you’ll have to imagine it for me!

GREAT GIFTS FOR TEACHERS, NEIGHBORS, HOST/HOSTESSES FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON!
