I promise you every year when they open that box they will always think of you, I think that is so special and sweet! Let’s face it, decorative ornaments can be pricey but if you make them you will be surprised how much money you can save!  Whattya say?!

Happy THANKSGIVING! I sit here and it’s past 1 am in the morning. I contemplated even writing a post only because I am extremely tired however, I get constant LOVE all year long from all of my readers so this is the least I can do. 

This past year has been a roller coaster to say the least. Lot’s of major changes went on in my life and there were many days where I didn’t feel like I had anything to be “Thankful” for. Of course just as seasons pass so do moods and feelings. Don’t we all get stagnant at times in our lives, I know I have hit some pretty rough moments where I just felt stuck. 

It did however dig really deep into my soul to really pull out everything I could possibly be thankful for. That is what I think we should all do. Is it hard, yes! Can you do it, YES! But you have to surrender everything inside of your soul to truly find beauty in everything around you. Being thankful is a beautiful thing and it’s even more beautiful when you finally realize all you have in your path.

Thanksgiving isn’t just about that one day of the year that your entire family get’s together to eat a grand ole meal and see people that you only see for special occasions. In my eyes this day is about giving thanks to things you have already been giving thanks to. 

Some of us don’t have large families that get together. Some of us spend the day alone, because we feel alone. I am not saying any of this is bad but I believe we should reach out to anyone who might feel alone and show them what they have to be thankful for. I will be spending the day with a few people in my family who love me and support me to the depths of my soul. The people who remind me how to be thankful all year long. Just keep in mind there are so many out there who don’t have a family to celebrate this day with. So for me, when you say grace for lunch or dinner please say a prayer for those alone, sad, depressed, angry or lost that they can soon feel love from someone, and possibly enough love to help them recognize what they have to be thankful for. 

2051da50817b28f94a6b256c857e858c Take time today to reflect. Jot down some things you might want to work on to become more aware of things in your life that you have to be thankful for. Every morning I wake up and I say thanks to the Universe for allowing me to be on Earth one more beautiful day. Thank you Universe for my healthy body and my hands that are allowing me to type this beautiful message to you tonight. I could go on for days but we ALL have so much to be thankful for. Lord knows I am already thankful for my dads yams tomorrow… hehe

0538cc05a2222530aced7672cb9efcd9 Take a moment to put yourself in someones else’s shoes. Not literally peeps. But seriously you never know the battles others are facing. Is it out job to judge? Is it our job to tell others what we think they should do? NO! It is our job to be understanding and loving. After all, love is the answer. Plus if you trust in the Universe then you will feel safe knowing that all things come to us at the perfect times. We may not know it now but lord knows we will figure it out one day. On another note these shoes are FIRE, right! 

22e5408d8458b517cc399d912a7a598e Last but not least. I am so THANKFUL for my loving home that I can provide for me and my son. It may not be a mansion but boy I can tell you it is FILLED with so much LOVE! I have an idea this Holiday season. The weather is getting colder and let’s teach kids and adults a loving lesson. Collect old blankets, scarves or sweaters and pass them out to those in homeless shelters or people you might just see on the streets. They will be thankful and in return you will get so much that you will be thankful for. It’s how the Universe works friends. Karma. 

I love you all and I would not be here if it were not for YOU! So Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!!!! 

XOXO, Jade

Y’all it’s almost Christmas! Seriously I feel like I made these DIY Coffee Mugs a week ago. Welcome to my world! I can’t quite grasp Christmas this year. Maybe because it still sorta feels like Summer-ish / Fall-ish here in Louisiana. I mean come on mother nature, can you give us like 4 days of snow? It’s not too much to ask of you. I just want to wear some scarves for a few days without my neck getting hot.

Which brings me to the subject of why stores in Louisiana even sell scarves. However it’s quite funny when you go into a store here and a mannequin is dressed with a scarf and tank top.. Insert WTF here.

Speaking of Mannequins. Are you totally loving this new fad all over the internet where everyone stands still (minus the people who blink every now and then) and pretends life is at a dead stand still? I know I am. Shoot’s, it’s better than that whole “plank” fad that went around a few years ago. I think THIS ONE is my favorite so far. I mean you can be in the WORST mood ever and once you watch this you will wish there was more, or you will wish you were in that front row. Either way I bound and determined to do one and you can bet I will get creative. Stay tuned. I think my DIY Coffee Mugs would work perfectly in a mannequin challenge.

Today I wanted to share with you a really fun tutorial I did last year for I Love to Create. I am always down to wear an ugly sweater and I wanted to make sure my mugs had the change to do the same thing. Click on the link below for the FULL TUTORIAL.
DIY COFFEE MUG

I won’t give aways the deets but I will tell you that anyone can create fun mugs. These can be for yourself or for a friend. Either way they are the perfect gift! I will say that the ceramic markers below are by far the best I have ever used. No, I am not getting paid to say that (well technically I am but…) I am very serious.

These would look great next to your mugs! ugly-sweater-snowman-mug

Yep! They are safe to use once you are done. I thought I would add hearts to the bottom of my mugs so when their drink is all done they will have a heart felt surprise! How sweet huh! ♥

OH SNAP! I almost forgot to tell you about my Dream Tree Challenge for Michaels. Every year I am honored to create a beautiful tree and this year I went all out! Wondering what theme I went with? You hoping I tell you right now huh! NOPE, haha! Click HERE to see my beautiful creation… I am still in love with last years tree but I am totally digging the beauty of this years.  DIY Coffee Mugs - Christmas Mugs - DIY - DIY GIFTS

Merry Christmas!

No, not really but if you live in my “land” then it’s time to break out the egg nog and mistletoe. So with that being said I will graciously sit here in my cozy pajamas, half cold coffee and good music to give you a little blast of Christmas…Why? Because, WHY NOT!

I have to give a huge shout out to Michaels for giving me the opportunity to participate in yet another year of the dream tree challenge! It’s always fun plus it gives me a great excuse to break out my winter wonderland! I always try to do something different each year to test my limits and go out of my typical “colorful” comfort zone. Remember my woodsy tree last year…I seriously wanted to keep that baby up all year long but after 3 months of seeing it I couldn’t handle another month of it, haha!

This year I wanted clean and crisp and that is just what was delivered. I can’t lie, I walked out of Michaels with way too many ornaments this year but I can totally explain it.  When I saw all of the themed decor at the store I went into sensory overload and acted like the little girl on Willy Wonka who ate the blueberry gum. She just couldn’t help herself, as I couldn’t either. Let’s get to it!

project-ranking-format5

This year I came very close to setting up my tree in a different place (someone else’s home) because I just miss having a real tree in my home. Don’t get me wrong I love my faux tree but it’s not a real one and let’s face it when I spend this much time into a tree you can bet your bottom dollar I will not be taking it down to put up another one. Although I will admit I will be doing another tree soon for another brand so lord knows where I will stuff that baby.

Let’s enter into my faux winter wonderland…

dream-tree-challenge

I have to admit I started out with just white ornaments but somehow I ended up getting some rose gold and silver ornaments to pop into the tree. So I guess we can say it’s a bedazzled winter wonderland.

This year Michaels had some really unique balls in boxes (say that three times really fast) that are not actual ornaments. I think my favorite ones were these snow ball, balls. They stuck immediately to my wreath which I thought was very cool!  diy-snow-balls

I made some cute deer ornaments that I fell completely in love with. I hot glued glittered deer antlers onto the top on an ornament then glued the ball onto a block of wood. Voila. Instant gratification. You can sit this babies onto a window ledge for some added decor. OH, another thing you can do is put them on top of a present. Boom. Done.  snow-christmas-tree

This year Michaels had these beautiful snowflake pillows so you know I had to get ALL of them. Literally it’s not a joke. I bought all of them. But why? I ask myself that every time I get home with loads of stuff. I mean, I needed them for the pictures.  glittered-pillows

I bought this glittery wired ribbon and started stuffing it into my tree when I accidentally pulled on it and it magically opened up into a stream of “ooh’s and ahhh’sss”…. I don’t know if you actually get what time type of accident feels like. I can sit here and tell you I found myself trying to find anything to put this ribbon on just so I could pull it apart over and over.  michaels-makers-tree

It’s always a must to add glittered pine cones to your tree or just placed under your tree as if nature naturally dropped them there, right. Get a plain pine cone, brush some glue onto the edges then sprinkle glitter on them till your heart falls out of your chest. Want to get real fancy, sprinkle some german glass glitter and really show off your fancy pants to your friends and family. You will have people lined up at your door begging you to decorate their pine cones.  glittered-pine-cones

What’s Christmas without a corner filled with faux sneaux balls and styrofoam deer. I mean we can’t leave out the pine cones, see you just throw them anywhere and you will instantly have a winter wonderland. A great way to dress up a live plant is put it in a cloth trash can. I know, genius.  deer-christmas

snowball-decorations

Remember that wired ribbon. It kinda made it’s way onto a garland. What can I say it’s a stress reliever.  garland-christmas-decor

I took all of my books out of this book shelf and gave these babies a home. Don’t worry they are just chilling here for the holidays. It actually took a LOT to take my books out but I again, I went out of my comfort zone for the babies. Round of applause.  white-christmas

I love candles for the holidays. I love glittered candles for the holidays as well. Simply add some Mod Podge to the outside of a candle then drench with glitter. So simple yet so elegant.  all-white-christmas

wish

An easy way to add some cheer to your space is throwing some white balls onto faux deer antlers. I know what you are thinking… I thought Jade was doing an all white Christmas. I was ok, but I had to add a pop of color to my world. It was literally begging to go up! Now my soul feels complete.

Hey Everyone! I know it’s been a HOT minute since I posted on the blog but I have to tell you LIFE has a crazy was of throwing so much at you at once…I am so excited to show you how to make Moss Covered Pumpkins today. I am always so excited to do this challenge for Michaels.

I wanted to create something a little different and magical. You all know I love color and even though these are more natural pumpkins I am totally in love. I love the thought that there are little creatures living in the moss in their own fairy land. Maybe I created these because subconsciously I want to be one of the creatures, haha! Who’s ready to get started! P.S. I am leaving tomorrow to go to Carmel California to our annual Michaels Makers Summit so I can’t wait to share with you this adventure! Check out what we did LAST year…You will see why I am so excited!

To kick off fall in your own home, visit Michaels.com and check out the variety of craft pumpkins available – there is every color, shape and size you could ever want! There are tons of ways to DIY your own craft pumpkin for your home, a party or even as a gift.

EASY DIY PUMPKINS

Supplies: Craft Pumpkin | Moss | Glue Gun | Glue Sticks pumpkin project supplies

I don’t know about you but I am in LOVE with this beautiful picture of this MOSS! I won’t say what it looks like, haha! If you have never crafted with this Moss you will love it when you get some. It’s so soft and feels like it came strait of a forest.  moss projects

Michael’s has a wide variety of Pumpkins to choose from so I picked the white ones. I wasn’t sure if some of the pumpkin color would show through the moss so I chose white! Guess what… The Moss fills it up completely! None of the pumpkin color shows! craft pumpkin projects

The first thing you will do is plug in your glue gun then when it’s ready add a few lines starting at the top of the pumpkin and carefully place a small piece of moss on top of the hot glue.  craft pumpkins

This is what it will start to look like once you start adding your moss. I did choose three different moss colors so I can have three different pumpkins. I wanted them to all look different and boy am I happy I did that! fall pumpkins

Look how beautiful! It’s like a cute little secret world… Imagine what’s living in this!  diy fall pumpkins

I added a few wax plants in the mix to bring it to life. These would look great on a table top for the Fall holidays.  michaels makers

Today it will be all about Adult Coloring Books! Did you know that Michaels offers free classes in their stores? You can try out a new craft skill for just the cost of supplies.  

  • Michaels has everything you need to craft the perfect handmade gift that will make Mom’s day.

ADULT COLORING

This month’s challenge was a little different from my past challenge’s! We were asked by Michaels to sign up for one of the classes that’s offered in the store! Did you even KNOW that they had classes offered in the store!!! It’s AMAZING! I wanted to do something a little different than what I normally  do so I chose to go to the “Coloring Time” class. Now I know this isn’t the “typical” class where you create an amazing wreath however I never got into this whole adult coloring book fad and I wanted to try it out and get some feed back from other’s on why they enjoy it and how it benefits their lives!

These classes are great because if can force a person to learn a new craft, hobby or technique that they otherwise might be hesitant to take up.  When I got to my Michaels store the instructor did suggest that if we wanted to purchase our own coloring book we could so and as soon as I saw this Chalkboard coloring book I knew it was meant for me!

Once we got in the class they gave us sheets that we could use if you didn’t want to purchase a personal coloring book. I kept them just to show you.

MANDALA COLORING SHEETS

These were the instructions that were given to us when we got to the class. I also kept this as well. I thought it was very helpful. If you do any of the classes offered at Michaels they give you a detailed sheet like this telling you what you need to purchase before the class. You can also sign up online!

MICHAELS CLASSES Materials needed for this product were:
*Chalkboard Coloring Book
*Color Pencils
*Pencil Sharpener  CHALKBOARD COLORING BOOKS  I just love how vibrant all of these colors are. I am usually not a fan of colored pencils but these really worked nice while coloring in the small details.  COLORING BOOK PENCILS  Not to mention the pencil sharpener helps!  COLORING PENCISL

Another great way to explore your creativity is by trying out a craft kit. Michaels has everything from sewing kits to art kits and everything in between.

I am so happy with the way these turned out. What I love the most is you can literally take it right out of the book and just frame it for your house. You can give it as a gift framed up as well!!!

EASY CLASSES AT MICHAELS CRAFT STORE Look how beautiful it looks once you start coloring the white spaces. A lot of the ladies in the class said to me that they enjoy getting out of the house and coming to Michaels for these coloring classes because it’s a good way for them to meet people and it actually settles their minds. It takes them into another land that is relaxing to them. I thought that was neat since I usually do something really crazy like move everything in my house around to relax me. I know, fist bump… I’m a soldier.  how to color   It was nice to see how easily the colored pencils blended with the other colors. It’s very hard to tell how great the colors look in this picture but just TRUST me they look better in person! michaels classes in store

chalkboard coloring book pages I hope you enjoyed this adventure of mine and please don’t forget to sign up you and your kids for in-store classes at Michaels!!!!

See you in the next post, xoxo Jade

Good Morning Frens! Someday’s I wake up and when I open my phone I love seeing quotes that are just flowing on social media.

Some might think that quotes reflect how a person I am feeling that day or just in general however that is not always the case.

Today I will show you how to make this rad Rainbow Ombre Tie Dyed Bag! I don’t know about you but I feel like my soul never left the 80’s and with that being said it’s clear that I still love anything Tie Dye! Seriously, my boho hippie soul would rock this to just about anything. Now if rainbow isn’t for you no worries because you can still follow my steps but do which ever colors that fit your fancy pants! Who’s ready to go back to Woodstock, I know I am!

Let’s get started!

how to tie dye a bag rainbow ombre Summer is always an exciting time of year especially when you can express your personality with your backpack. Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye can make this happen in a matter of minutes. I always have a hard time choosing the colors I want to use so in today’s post we will use the 3 primary colors. You can never go wrong with these colors because you can create so many shades with them.

Red + Blue = Purple
Yellow + Red = Orange
Blue + Yellow = Green

MATERIALS:
Plain Canvas Bag
One Step Spray Dye Kit

((( These are affiliate links so when you purchase from these links you are helping me out a lot! So YO, thanks!)))

When you open your kit it comes with everything you need. Bottles that are pre-filled with dye powder, rubber bands, plastic gloves and a project guide. How freaking cool is that. It’s like a one stop shop!
how to paint a bag I love how each bottle’s spray top matches the color that is inside. This makes it easy when storing.
easy kid projects The first thing you will do is fill the bottle with water all the way to the black line. Make sure to use warm water when filling your bottle.  DSC_0313 I am leaving my bag dry when applying the spray dye. Some instructions will tell you to wet your fabric before applying dye but for this project we are going to leave it dry. Start from the bottom and use the darkest color and gradually go up with red in the middle then yellow along the top.
spray dye projects After you apply these three colors let it sit for about 2 minutes.

Grab your yellow and spray on top of the red dye, it will start turning orange.

Apply blue on top of the red and you will see it change to purple.

Add yellow on top of the blue and you will see green come through.

!!!How fun is this so far! I want to do this to everything I own now! I think bed sheets would be amazing! Also, you can continue to spray over and over on top of each color until you get the shades you are happy with.

Are you drooling yet over this Rainbow Ombre Tie Dyed Bag!!!! how to tie dye a bag Let it sit over night to dry and this is what it will look like! Notice I even dyed the string straps! I always hand wash and let hang dry when I am completely done.

I am absolutely in love with this project. It’s fun, easy and kids or adults will love doing it! bohemian diy bag Have a great SUMMER and don’t forget to show your personality in everything you do, because there is only one you!

Let me start off by saying I love miniature dishes, bowls, plates, saucers, or whatever you feel like calling them. I also have to admit that I have like 500 of them all over the house in little nooks and crannies. I always feel like an empty spot in some room needs a little dish to catch things like lip gloss, change, chargers, keys or whatever else you can find to fill them. I won’t lie, I sometimes give them away to friends or family as gifts but for some reason the hoarder comes out in me and I tend to stash them all over. Speaking of stashing I was cleaning my bathroom the other day and I found a little dish I made behind a picture frame with change in it. I wasn’t sure if I had more change or more dust in the bowl! HAHA. So I just washed all the change and put it back in the dish. SEE, I told you they are handy!

Since my friends at Michaels asked me to create a Mothers day project that can be for moms, dads, grandmas or whoever, I knew immediately what I was going to create. The great thing about this project is you can personalize it to fit your anyones personality! My mother is one heck of a crafter to I guess I owe a lot of my craftiness to her..

  • Michaels has everything you need to craft the perfect handmade gift that will make Mom’s day.

Who’s ready to get started on this mothers day project!

organize your craft room The only bad thing about posting this on here is my mom might actually see her Mother’s Day gift… hahaha! Sorry mom if you are reading this!  air dry clay projects Materials for this project:
Air Dry Clay : I love this product and it’s great for kids! No need for baking, you just let them air dry and voila!
Maxx Gloss Paint : I purchased these from Michaels but you can use any gloss paint that you like. This brand tends to dry really glossy which I like because it’s easy to wash them if they get dirty. Remember, “dirty coins”…
Mod Podge : One thing I love about this product is once you apply to your product it dries clear and coats it nicely.
Glitter Flakes : You can use any glitter you want for this project. You also don’t have to use any glitter and can just paint the bowls with paint.
Brushes : Make sure you use good brushes so your bowls don’t have streaks on them.

You can purchase all of the products I used by clicking on the blue links!
kid friendly clay Make sure when you open your clay that it is cold and soft. Sometimes people open the containers in the store the clay gets hard. I seriously love this clay because you can make so much with it and the next day it’s ready to use! clay diy projects The first thing you will do is get a chunk of soft clay and slowly mold it into a little bowl. You can press the edges to make them thin and curve the edges to make it look like delicate flower petals.  clay projects When you are done forming your bowls let them sit out over night to dry. I like to leave mine out for 48 hours so make sure they are really hard.  how to paint clay Once they are dry these babies are ready to be painted! Have fun with your colors! I made them a little plain today because these are for my mom however I might keep a few and spice them up. You know me, I love my color! NO, I am not at ALL saying my mom is PLAIN… She is just not as BOLD as me….♥ glitter projects When your paint is completely dry you will brush Mod Podge onto the bottom of your bowl then sprinkle with glitter flakes. Press down gently with finger and blow excess glitter out. Coat the top of glitter with another layer of Mod Podge to secure the glitter! Let these suckers dry then you are done!  easy mothers day diy I am simply delighted with how they came out. Simple, modern and handmade. Let me also mention, made with ton’s of love!  clay dishes You can make these as small or large as you want! You can even make one to fit your cell phone!

“First things first I’m the realist”. I have to tell you I am so excited to finally get to show you my (personal) top 20 Rainbow Hair Color Ideas. A while back I got this wild hair up my you know what and decided I wanted to change my hair color a little. I already know I am somewhat limited when it comes to changing “my” hair color only because my hair is so dark. After days of scrolling on Pinterest and other sites I finally decided on this mahogany shade of red. It’s easier to pull reds with dark hair so I gave it a go.

I can’t say I was 100% pleased when it was all said and done but I also didn’t hate it. I think my hair dresser thought I would flip out if she went as red as I wanted so she toned it down a few notches and told me to gradually go to the red I wanted. I agreed a little BUT I still wish we would of pulled the plug and went RED.

Anyways, I always wanted lavender or pink hair but I can’t imagine bleaching my hair first then adding the color I want. I do cherish my hair and it’s long and healthy. I guess I will live vicariously thorough all of the pictures below. Enjoy my top 20 choices for colorful bold hair!
