Killers Caught

Kankakee: Police release names in Buckner killing – The Daily-Journal.

Kankakee: Local grassroots group meets tonight to carry on ‘Joe Buck’s’ legacy – The Daily-Journal.

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 — Step by Step

Posted: November 11, 2011 in Crafts, D.I.Y, Home, Party

I posted a few weeks back about the dip tray I made…  Well through emails I learned you guys want a step by step guide to making it…

History of my $3.oo tray

Bored day, went to Dollar Tree got  a plate and a bowl and was on my way home to make a dip tray…

So I washed it…. didn’t take a picture because EVERYONE knows how to do that. I dried it and it was another step that I know everyone can do without a picture.

So I added the glue to the candle stick… The glue is mixed with orange paint so I can mark my spot… I simply put glue on the the bottom of the candle stick holder….

 

 

 

 

 

I put it on the plate so I can mark it…. Once I marked it

Once I marked it I applied more glue to it and placed it all together.  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

 

all you need to make this

  • 1 plate
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 candle stick holder
  • or vase
  • E-6000 glue
PLEASE LET IT SIT… I RAN OUTSIDE TO SHOW MY HUSBAND…. 
BAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM 
IT DROPPED AND I HAD TO REDO IT… LOL
