October Craft Class – Tiered Serving Tower October 8, 2013


Ever wanted to turn those china dishes in your cabinet into something you may ACTUALLY use, but didn’t dare repurpose your grandmother’s coveted china? Well . . . don’t worry, we bought somebody else’s grandmother’s china for you to use during this craft session.

These Serving Towers will be an amazing center piece to your Holiday feast, a fantastically thought-provoking hostess gift or a useful teacher appreciation gift. Many different materials will be offered to choose from: vintage china, glass platters, aluminum serving trays, and more. We will also incorporate a secret repurposed how-to craft that will make gift giving fun, easy and recycle-e this Holiday Season.

Let’s Eat Together November 22, 2012

It’s hard to take in the fact that the ‘kids’ on both sides of my family are getting older. Last year, on my side, many of the kids were not able to make it home for Thanksgiving. I went to work and created care packages that I mailed out. The main contents of the package were picture cut-outs of the entire family. I tried to get most of us eating. In the package I also included a paper fold out turkey and placemats for them to color. One of my niece’s took this picture in her dorm room. It wasn’t the same as us all together, but it was the closest thing to it.


You will need:

  • Photos
  • Card stock
  • Scissors



  1. Compile photos of family members eating.
  2. Add a little rectangle at the bottom of each photo to act as a base. Cut half circles from card stock. Cut a slit on the half-way mark of the circle, do not cut all the way through. This can be done on the computer or you could do it by hand. Print out photos onto card stock, trim out photos.



Here’s the letter I sent:



Boy-oh-boy I sure do hope this got to you all on time!!! We miss you all terribly. Since you were unable to come ‘home’ for Thanksgiving, we thought we would send the family your way.

Now, you’ll need to assemble each family member. You simply take the little half circle shape and fit it into the slit at the bottom of each white box, it will create an ‘X’ shape so you can place everyone on the table when you are having your Thanksgiving dinner. So, we will all be eating together all over the country. I’ve also sent a marvelous center piece and handsome place mats (be sure to fill it out).

Hope to see you soon. We’ll be thinking of you all.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Hugs and kisses,
Auntie Kor

Joyce’s Meatloaf February 19, 2012

I was never a big fan of meatloaf until my late mother-in-law made this. It’s easy and kid approved.

1 lb Ground beef

12 Crackers (any kind)

2 Eggs

1 Package of onion soup mix


Mix all ingredients (except catchup). Place in a loaf pan. Moosh (Yes, ‘moosh’ is a word . . . I just made it up) the meat together and dome the top – so it looks like a loaf of bread, run a knife along the inside sides of the pan. Squirt catchup over the top.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes (or until it’s no longer pink on the inside).
