glowing hurricane glasses jaderbomb

Glowing Hurricane Glasses Tutorial

Good day my little Jaderbugs! It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood, won’t you be my neighbor {please hehe}…
I remember when I was little I loved Mr. Rogers. I LOVED that he changed his cardigan every 5 minutes. Looking back now, that sucker was very fashionable. Plus, you can never go wrong with a cardigan.  So the days are getting closer till I get to see Martha! I keep pinching myself because this just can’t be happening to lil ole me! BUT IT IS, and I am so thankful to my UNIVERSE.
Matthew 21:22 
And all things, whatever you make request for in prayer, having faith, you will get.

With faith, love, and passion anything’s possible.  God rewards you and you will know when it’s just simply your time. 

This craft we are doing today was really easy.  The one thing I loved the most about it is you can mix and match with any color tissue paper.  They give off the best lighting once complete. {{can we say affordable also, that’s always a plus}. After all it’s about using what you have and loving it. There is nothing in this world like crafting. It is the best feeling in the world when you can create something with your bare hands. Nothing like it I tell ya. 
I can’t even go a day with out looking at {{everything}} in my path and thinking what I could do to “jaderbomb” it. 
So grab a coke {or water, or pepsi or whatever} and stay a while.  I don’t mind. Shoot’s bring your friends! 

p.s. These are all the ingredients I used.
p.s. You want to start off by folding your tissue paper in half then cut with your scissors.
p.s. After you cut your tissue paper you want to make a fold about 1″ from the bottom. Do another piece and slip it into the first fold. Just continue until you are happy with the look!
p.s. On the left is what it should look like prior to wrapping around your glassware.  Then you want to take whatever “glass” object you are using and lay it flat on top of the tissue paper.
p.s. Tape down that first piece and start rolling. (hint: if you use two sheets in some spots it will make it look darker)
p.s. The one on the left I simply brushed on a little mod podge then sprinkled Martha’s vintage leaf glitter on it and it officially has been jaderbombed. The one on the right I made it look ombre which is so pretty while lit. I just embellished it with that fancy little spider.
p.s. Look how cute this baby is! Has a great jewel on it’s head! So festive!
Sending you all the vintage leaf glitter to sparkle your house up with,

Poo Up Wedding Decorations

Happy Tuesday my little Jaderbugs!  I hope everyone’s day is going just as planned. If it’s not…Just take what you have and make the best of it! After all it’s the end that matters! 
This craft that we are doing today is SUPER duper fun.  While I was sewing the strips of vellum together my brain started working in overtime! {{like I’m not ADD enough}}…..
You can do this craft for birthday parties, weddings, holidays, or special events! You can make it super clean and crisp by doing all white or you can do every color of the rainbow. ENDLESS I tell ya! 
Don’t forget~ Martha Stewart’s new season started yesterday and if you have not watched it yet, you have to put it on your to-do list! It’s on Hallmark! I’ll see you there…
Don’t forget also that next week is craft week {{hint hint}}….. 
Well gotta run, my head is taking off and I have to go catch it {{winking}}
Sending you love sewn together,
jaderbomb

Homemade Potpourri

On a recent trip to my father’s house I took a stroll and ran across a couple of things other’s may pass by without even noticing. I though this was the perfect time to post some things from nature that you could incorporate within your personal space.

Most would see these hanging in a tree and pass by it. Next time, grab a big handful and let them sit out in the sun for a day or two and when they are completely dry, there you have it!!!! Next all you have to do is sprinkle drops of your favorite essential oil and voila!!! Homemade Potpourri ….

While on my walk I ran across these Cattails! There is something so interesting about these little babies. Maybe it’s the fact that they simply remind me of a corn-dog! I know you all love corn-dogs!!

See! I told you these suckers look awesome! I have them outside on my antique wood burning stove… They just add that “perfect” cozy touch to it!  

I hope you enjoyed this easy DIY my little Jaderbugs!!
Sending you lots of spongy fake corn-dogs,

Scented Confetti Tutorial Jaderbomb

Homemade Scented Confetti

Happy Saturday my little Jaderbugs! I hope your weekend is going GREAT! I have lots of crafting to do  ALL day Sunday because I have missed a couple of days and I need to catch up! I know all of you forgive me though {{praying hands}}.  The last couple of days have been “surreal”and BUSY! SO much to do and SO little time. Let me know if there is a special craft you would like to see me do! You can write a comment below ANY of my posts’ to tell me! 


This is one of the gifts I got in the mail!!! {{thanks Martha}}
 PUNCH ALL OVER THE PAGE
I can’t even explain how awesome this tool is! Let me just tell you the best thing about it. On all four corners they have little magnets. Why is this awesome? WELLLL because you don’t have to “guess” where to place the top! The awesome fantastic magnet’s do all the work! AND, you can use the WHOLE sheet of paper not just the edges! 


~For best results press top of punch evenly with both hands. 
~Align the flat corner of base to flat corner of top to punch.  The magnets will connect.  
~Use this punch in the center, on the edge, or anywhere on the page! Punch multiple times in a row or grid to achieve a patterned effect.

It’s all about Frank and the Universe

Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today
I want to be a part of it – New York, New York
These vagabond shoes, are are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it – New York, New York

I wanna wake up in a city that doesn’t sleep
And find I’m king of the hill – top of the heap

These little town blues, are melting away
I’ll make a brand new start of it – in old New York
If i can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere
It’s up to you – New York, New York

New York, New York
I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps
And find I’m a number one, top of the list
King of the hill, a number one

These little town blues, are melting away
And I’m gonna make a brand new start of it – in old New York
And if i can make it there, I’m gonna make it anywhere

It’s up to you – New York New York

New York

sending you nice background music to fall asleep to,

MARTHA MAIL

Beyond excited is what I feel today!! Lot’s of FUN things coming up so you will have to keep coming back!!! I just could not wait to share this with you because when I opened this box my heart was beating so fast it felt like it was gonna burst out. I mean, who doesn’t like to get presents in the mail.  Especially from MARTHA STEWART!!!!
The last 2 weeks have been amazing! Actually SURREAL (fa reallll). I just am still so much in shock at the outcome of where I stand today. The support I deal with on a daily basis is something I would not trade for anything in this world.  Now I understand the saying about is your glass half empty or half full. LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT! Don’t let anyone tell you other wise.  If someone tells you something that puts you in a rut, take that as an incentive to do better! But you have to remember one important thing.  Don’t do it for anyone but YOU.
Don’t do it to PROVE something to someone because you are sending out the wrong energy.
No matter what you do in life as long as you give it ALL you have then the only thing that can come out of it is good.  Ya know.  When I started this blog years ago I had alot of people make “rude” comments about how “silly” it was.  That is OK. It was their opinion. I have had to learn to shake anything negative off. When I did that. My life started changing.  
WOWZERS. How did something I got in the mail turn into this!!! {{head shaking and laughing}}
Onto the GOOD things!!!
Please keep in mind that this is only 2 pictures of what I got. In the morning I will open each thing up and take some really good pictures for you!!! 
She amazes me and I can’t wait to meet her. JS….and Laura…and Jenn (insert lots of big grins here)
I hope you enjoy them! 

Sending you lots of goodies in a box waiting at your front door,

Pinecone Hurricane Vase

Ok… I will just jump to the truth.  This baby did not turn out like I “though” it would. Is it ugly, NO.  Is it pretty, NO. {{paaahahaha}}. It is pretty in person and I think that is what counts. It was fun to make and VERY affordable! I have to say I didn’t think the pinecones would require so much attention. Those babies just kept breaking and breaking!!! It was like “ok, just work with me… do it for Martha”.. Then a couple decided they wanted to work with us! I also used a mason jar because it was a “little” different than what Martha used but I just had to add that Jaderbomb touch! 
I would rate this craft as SUPER easy, but you have to get “good” pinecones.  They can’t be too dried up because they just crack. I think every pinecone tree around my house had DRY pinecones.  {{thanks universe, jj I love you}}
I do NOT think my craft came out as decadent as Martha’s but I still plan on making lot’s more!!
I have some fun and exciting things coming up in the next couple of weeks so you BETTER stay tuned!!!  
p.s. Remember how I told you about them breaking so easy! These are my first two babies I got off in one piece!
p.s. I know it looks messy with all the hot glue strings all over but in the end, once the glitter is on everything it will all be just fine!

p.s. They may not have turned out as perfect as Martha’s but they sure do make me happy! 
I hope you enjoyed this craft you little Jaderbugs! 
sending you lotsa pinecones sticking you all over but making you happy,

All the annoying things in life

Just wanted to share something with you that was sent to me… I usually don’t write stuff like this but I just had to share this with you. I feel EVERYONE who reads this or comes across it could benefit from it and for that reason alone I have to share….
As you might remember, the head of a company survived 9/11 because his son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring the donuts.
One woman was late because her alarm clock did not go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of an auto accident.
One of them missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change.
One’s car would not start.
One could not get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man who put a new pair of shoes on that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there he developed a blister on his foot.  He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today.
You see…. God has a plan for all of us.  Some might not understand that but you must TRUST.
Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone… all the little things that annoy me
I think to myself.  This is exactly where god wants me to be. At this VERY moment.  
So , the next time your day seems to be going “wrong”…
You can’t seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light, don’t get mad or frustrated.
It may be just that GOD is at work watching over you.  
p.s. i took this picture during the summer and i am still in awe of it. it’s just proof that he loves us.

Design your own cell phone case

This weekend I woke up with the “grand” idea to cover my phone case.  What started that idea was the fact that my phone case was FULL of scratches and FULL of paint.  I know, your thinking, “well if you got your real case dirty why would you think you wouldn’t get this furry concoction dirty”.  Fact is I will. If you lived in my shoes a couple days you would see that dirty means GOOD. Dirty means PRODUCTION.  Dirty means, finding ways to constantly “cover” things up.  Ya know, sometimes I hate buying new clothes. It’s so pretty and clean. Those fibers have no idea what it’s like living in the life of an artist.  Well, someone has to do the dirty work {{right eyebrow lifting up REALLY high}}
p.s. if you go to your local craft store you can find every color you could possibly want.  I bough mine at Michael’s Arts and Crafts.
p.s. i like to do a little bit at a time so ensure it is put on well
p.s. just keep on wrapping all over the phone. good thing is if you mess up nobody will ever know because it all blends in.  make sure you don’t cover the spots where your “holes” are.
p.s. when you are almost done you will need to cut the “fur” where your camera lens is.
p.s. tadahhhh.. one BIG ball of love .. YES that is my phone faced down.  funny huh!!!
Sending you balls and balls of hot pink fur,
jaderbomb
P.S. Don’t forget to check out my 100 days of Martha Stewart countdown I am doing. It is a REAL fun project I took on! So fun, I am gonna do a new craft later tonight. Oh you ask. When do I have time to do ALL of this and have a REAL life.  Well, when you are all cozy in your beds at like 3 am… I am crafting.  ((teeheheh))

T-Shirt Bag

Happy Monday! I wonder if I am the only person in the world who sees Monday as a “fun-day”.  I can’t really list any reason why I think Monday is more fun than any other day but hey, it’s only 4 days away from the weekend! So, I guess it’s all how you look at it.  Due to something called LIFE I found it very difficult to get a craft done yesterday! I know, how could I disappoint all my jaderbugs like that! I promise I will make it all up to you one day, and I promise that it will be before the 100 days of Martha is over! 

When I saw this craft I got super dooper excited! I am such a BAG freak it’s not even funny.  
It’s not like I {{need}} more bags. Trust me, if you saw the variety of bags I have you would just stand in a awkward stance and shake your head back and forth… {bad thing is I am not sure how many times you would actually shake your head}. It’s kinda like that thing where you smell something bad and you KNOW it smells bad but you just have to smell it again. It’s like reassurance that it INDEED DOES SMELL BAD! That it’s not your mind playing tricks on ya or some sinus drip your smelling subconsciously. You would just shake your head over and over just to make sure SOMEONE sees how amazed your are by your “shake”… OK.  enough about being AMAZED! 

This craft is REALLY affordable which is ALWAYS nice!!! So let’s get started! OH, and after I did this craft of course this “boring” brain just went to work overtime.  I am gonna post at a later date all the extra creations you can do with this awesome craft! Martha always knows how to get ya! 
You could also use these for your groceries instead of using the plastic they give you. 
very GREEN

p.s. all you will need is a sewing machine, some FABRIC shears ( i used pinking shears) and a bowl.  
p.s. i used 2 different shirts just to show you a variety! ya know, this is a great way to “reuse” shirts that you LOVE but don’t wanna get rid of”
p.s. first thing you wanna do is flip the shirt inside out and sew the bottom part of it.  
p.s.  i simply put a bowl down where your neck goes and just traced around the bowl with a pencil.  i only used half of the bowl.  
p.s. next you want to cut over the line you just drew.  
p.s. with the shirt still inside out you need to cut the sleeves off.
p.s. tadahhhhhhhh! how awesome are these babies. are you going through your shirts yet~~~
Sending you lot’s of T-Shirts cut up and made into bags,

Homemade Heating Pad

Today we will be making a homemade heating pad. I think this is a great way to look cute and relax at the same time. It is very easy to do and only costs around $ 3.00. I know, that sounds absolutely CRAZY!!! But it’s true.
Some of the ingredients you will need are:
Bandana: $1.00 (Hobby Lobby/Local craft store)
Rice: $2.00 (Local grocery store)
and LOTS of LOVE~~

First thing you will do is hand wash your bandana to get some of the dye out and to take some of the stiffness out.

After you are done you will iron the bandana. This will make it really crisp and a lot easier to sew with.

When you are ready you lay the bandana face down (pretty side down/faded side up) you will fold in half twice. At this point you will be seeing the “wrong” side (faded side) of the bandana (or it will look inside out). You will sew at close as you can to the edge. I sewed about 1/4″ away from the edge. If you don’t have a sewing machine you can do this all by hand~ Remember, you only want to sew 3 sides. You will leave the top open so you can put the rice in.

As you can see it’s still inside out.
After you are done sewing, put your hand in the top you left open and pull it inside out. Once you do this, the edges will look clean and you will not see where you sewed.

Now it is time to fill with rice.
I used brown rice. However you can use any type/brand.

You can use a cup or your hand to put the rice inside.
The more rice inside the stiffer the heating pad will become.
I prefer my heating pad to be flexible,
this makes it easier to wrap on my aching or cold body parts.

When you are done stuffing your bandana with rice you will hand sew the side you left open. Make sure and sew it tight enough so the rice does not fall out.

And there you have it!!! Simple, Fashionable and CHEAP!~~
