Happy Monday Y’all!!! Today is the day I show you what I created with the new Make Market line from Michaels! Yes my friends at Michaels just knew I would create some rad project and I am super excited to share with you what I came up with!

Let’s be real. You can’t go wrong with flowers and a glue gun, hehe!

BOHO CRAFTS

YOU WILL NEED: Peg Board Letter | Artificial Flowers | Glue Gun | BoHo Decorative Screen | Twine (optional)

  • The best part about crafting is putting your own spin on a project. Whether it’s decorating with marquee lights or crafting an initial that represents your family name, Michaels has made it easy with their new Alphabet Soup by Make Market™ line of products.

Step One: Pull flowers off of stem. michaels makers projects

Step Two: Add a drop of hot glue around the bottom of flower.  love diy

Step Three: Place flower in peg board hole.  valentines day diy

The back will look like this. If you plan on putting this on a wall when you are finished with all of the flowers you can trim the backs so it fits flush against the wall.
pink crafts

I am so in love with this letter already. How cool would a the entire alphabet look on a wall!
valentines day gifts

I am putting my letter on top of a screen so I am not worried about cutting the backs of the flowers.  valentines day projects

Grab a little hook (btw this came on my boho screen that I got from Michaels as well) and add hot glue to one side of it.  glue gun projects

Step Four: Stick hook on back of letter. Leave it be for a hot minute to dry completely.  easy flower projects

  • This collection of surfaces, letters, frames and more come in modern, eclectic or rustic styles. From natural and finished woods, to a variety of metals, resin and patterned styles, the possibilities are endless.

Who’s ready to make a Recycled Planter! Yo Jaderbugs it’s been a hot minute since I posted something here but like always sometimes life takes over and our priorities get shifted a little. I am sure some of you can relate to that. I have some exciting projects I am starting this week and I can’t wait to share them with you! How have you been???? How’s life treating ya?!?!

I am excited to show you this Mushroom Planter I did a few years ago for the Graphics Fairy. It’s really easy and practically anyone can do this project. Now if you like planters then you have to see this one I made with Cupcake Liners!

I wonder if everyone out there eats mushrooms…I personally never could get my mouth to adjust to the taste and texture but then again I used to hate pickles and somehow the universe changed my tastebuds and now I can’t eat enough of them. No, I am not preggers, haha! We have this little bistro in the lobby of our building and usually everyday around 3 I walk over to get my daily pickle from them. I prolly should just go buy a big gallon bucket of them and keep in the fridge at the studio but for some reason I think they taste better from them. Plus I like supporting the bistro so a pickle here a pickle there adds up, hehe!

Now for this project you can do so many things with it. You can put a plant in it like I did or use the tub to hold anything your heart desires. It’s practically free to make (((sorta))) so in the end you an make tons of them! I don’t know about you but I am ready to started!
Recycled Planter

you will need

Empty Tub | Glitter | Brown Paper Bag | Mod Podge | Craft Brush | Scissors | Mushroom Printable

YO! You can seriously order all of the products I used in ONE hot spot by clicking on the links (above)….Yeppers these are affiliate links so by shopping from here you helping a sista out!  6

The first thing you will do is download this rad mushroom printable. Now look, if you are not into mushrooms you can find any image on this site that makes your heart happy! I simply like the look of mushrooms, just not in my mouth!

Once you print it out on durable paper (like card stock) carefully cut it out. You can use any scissors that you have but craft scissors work the best. 1

Next thing you will do is tear pieces of brown paper bags with your hands. You do not want to cut these pieces with scissors because we want the edges to look “torn”. Got it, great!  3

Once you have way too many pieces of brown torn paper bag pieces it’s time to glue these babies onto our hideous tub. Now, I used a gatorade tub but by all means you can use anything you want! If you plan on putting a plant in it just make sure the inside is durable and that you can puncture a few holes on the bottom so the water can drain.

Dip that brush in the Mod Podge, brush some on the tub, put paper bag tear out on top of glue then seal with another coat of Mod Podge. Wham Bam that’s it!

If you have never used Mod Podge I’ll tell you that it will look super white when applying initially. Don’t you worry little ones this stuff will dry clear and win over your heart in 20 minutes. Yep, this little container of white glue is majorly addicting. There is your warning. Bam.
4

When you are finished with your brown paper bag layer then it’s time to glue our Mushroom onto the container. You will use the same process as the paper bags. Don’t forget to sprinkle the glitter of your choice onto the mushroom while the glue is still wet. Heller, we always need some sparkle in our lives. I used an iridescent glitter so the colors will change depending on the angle you are looking.
5

Let this ball of beauty sit for a few hours and then you are ready to stuff it with whatever you want. Now if you don’t want some orange showing through then just add more brown paper bags but I kinda like the hint of color coming through in some spots. Another option is painting the tub the color of your choice before applying the paper bag.

I planted a Christmas Cactus in mine and I LOVE IT! This also makes a great gift to give someone, right! Thanks for hanging out with me on this wonderful Monday morning! See ya on the flip side Jaderbugs!  mushroom planter

I have a SNEAK PEAK OF A NEW PAINTING and BIG NEWS to share with you today! I am quite ashamed that I have not posted more of my paintings on here lately and maybe it’s because I haven’t been in the mood to share with the world, until today. I have been working on a series for about a year now and boy it’s the slowest dam series I have ever encountered in my LIFE. That is not a joke. I just started this one about a week ago and it’s not quite done but I wanted to share some details of it that I am in love with. I have to say I always get super connected to my work to the point of not wanting to sell it BUT if someone feels they NEED something I created then I am cool with that. Keep in mind these are FAR from finished.

This series is bases off of myself (sorta like a reflection of me) over the last year and a half. The only thing is, I have not shared with you the other paintings that go with this one. I think I am finally ready and I won’t lie they are just devine, to me. Don’t worry I will try to explain each picture and why I used certain materials and objects to help you understand my story. Incase you are wondering I only use OIL paint. I love how I can go in and out of it days later. What is your favorite medium to paint with? 

Don’t forget to check out my 20 favorite FREE PRINTABLE CALENDARS OF 2016!!! 3 d art In this series you will find push pins in the paintings. I prefer to use RED which symbolizes blood to me. Not in a bad way but geared towards the blood running through my veins. Deep huh, haha!  This piece has different elements in it that I think you will really love!  3-d Mixed Media Paintings I used rolled moss around one of the girls’ neck to symbolize growth. Don’t we all grow? Earth, grass, dirt… Anyways I thought it looked cool as well!   how to do mixed media art About while back I created these girls and painted them to reflect how I felt at the time. I have quite a few of them but these two were my most powerful ones and the I related to them 100%. You really can’t read the words I wrote and I like it that way. After all I have to leave something to your imagination… YES, the words mean something to me and that is all that matters.  art journal Here is one of my beautiful girls. Now I mentioned earlier that they are reflections of ME so don’t get confused when you see the blonde hair. Clearly I am not a blonde but this girl needed to be. I had fun creating the head separately then adding it to the flat body on the canvas. I believe it adds another dimension to the entire piece.  how to paint with oil Both of my girls have red/burgundy dresses on and again this symbolizes LOVE, BLOOD, PASSION to me.  mixed media art  I plan on adding much more texture to the dresses. I am thinking of adding lace to one of them….Stay tuned you never know what I might end up using.  painting with gesso I do love my background especially with all the texture I added. I can’t wait to show you the finished product! YES, this baby will be for sale and I will have prints of it for sale as well… Also I have exciting news! I am in the process of building a new SITE for you and I know you will love it. It should go LIVE in a week or two – so stay tuned! Sign up to get my emails so you don’t miss it! Trust me this site will be good for your “soul”… Love you all!

Until next time Jaderbugs!

Happy New Year! This is officially my 1st post of 2016 and this will be my year to organize my life and hopefully everyone else’s, haha! Michaels has the perfect items to choose from to help your life stay organized and that is the hard part! This #MichaelsMakers challenge really put me in the perfect mood to get a few new items for my studio and I can’t wait to show you what I decided to get!

Inspired to organize your own space? Start the year off right! Michaels has tons of products and storage supplies that can be used to decorate and inspire creativity in any room of your house or office.

XXXXX_SO_0101_Jan_Michaels_Makers_m

I especially love this time of the year. It is the perfect time for us to do a fresh cleansing of our spaces we spend a lot of time in plus it’s aways fun to get new things to help us organize our chaos! Remember last year when I showed you my WHOLE studio and how I stay organized?

organize your craft room

I was stoked when I found out about the new line of organizational products from Michaels! Cre8ted spaces has bright and whimsical products that will freshen up any space you are in! Did I mention that this line is now 50% off right now!!!! I literally started screaming inside when I saw this cute teal cart and I knew I just had to have it!

I just loved the idea of having a mobile cart of art supplies to bring back and forth from one room to another!

For starters why not clean out those cardboard boxes filled with tubes of paint and throw them in these cute green boxes. I can’t even express how much I love this color, it totally fits my personality.  easy organization tips Now I love having ton’s of containers for pens, pencils and paint brushes. I bought about 6 of these cute patterned ones and scattered them all over my studio.
how to organize pens

Why not clean out your bathroom and place those items you use daily in cute containers or baskets so they actually look nice sitting out!

basket organization

Honestly I could go on for days because you can literally organize every single corner of your life with these containers. I did however run across this Christmas tray at Michaels for 65% off!! It has a sweater pattern on the top and I will keep this out all year long. I love using twine for all of my project pictures so I figured this would be the best way to display them.

twine projects

I also bought these containers to store different brands of products in. I love staying this organized! STORE-PAINT-IN-A-CRAFT-SPACE

This cart holds all of the things I use daily and I love it. I think I might just have to get a cart for my house as well.  organize paint

How nice is this basket for paints! You will never have a problem looking for that perfect color.  basket organization tips

Old Navy Artists Hateful T-Shirts – BACKLASH

How NOT funny Old Navy! To think I used so support all of your clothes and I even did a few blog posts for you! This is so disappointing to me and many others out here for the mere fact that it discourages young children to aspire to be an ARTIST. Here is the LINK to one of the shirts and a screen shot because I have a feeling soon, this shirt will be down as if it never happened.

Old Navy customers are going crazy on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Seriously I am not shocked!

Why would Old Navy think it was ok to sell shirts that say “Young Aspiring Artist” with the word “artist” crossed out and replaced with “astronaut” or “president” instead. What blows my mind even more is that an ARTIST created this disgusting shirt.

Screen Shot 2015-12-30 at 10.48.24 AM

Am I mad? NO. I am disappointed. YES! I don’t think there is anything funny about this for one and I believe they are sending out a horrible message to our youth. As if being a president is much better than being an Artist. Frankly you couldn’t pay me to even WANT to be the president. As I sit here writing this I am also wondering how many people have already purchased this shirt…Surely it can’t be alot! Maybe a few people who have this wild dream of their kid becoming the president might have thought this was appropriate to purchase.

Maybe they are sending the message out to the world because they feel that financially a person would be better off as anything other than an Artist. Personally I would rather be a starving Artist than anything else.

I wonder if the ARTIST who created this shirt enjoyed making it. I wonder if the ARTIST who got PAID to create this shirt feels good about sending out this message.

Personally I think I should make a few shirts like this, right!

Bad call OLD NAVY, bad call..

Remember when Old Navy was slapped with this lawsuit??? Let’s all get together and share the shit out of this post! Let’s send out the RIGHT message, that this is NOT OK!

Follow JADERBOMB on Facebook.

 

WOW! What an amazing day to celebrate! It’s quite funny how the older I get the more I get “caught” up in the everyday bustle that comes along with Christmas. I love Christmas so much and I can honestly say this year I slowed down a lot and tried to enjoy every little ounce of Christmas. Last year was a rough year, a very rough year and if you were around then you probably remember THIS post! The good news is life is good. Of course it can be stressful at times but don’t we all have a little stress in our lives, hehe!

I am sitting in our living room with the smell of cornbread in the air. My honey is sleeping with a comfy red robe over her and my bestie is sitting on the sofa with her dog, Duke. Tomorrow we are having all of the family over and I am so excited. It’s been a LONG day and for some reason when I have big things going on I have a little trouble settling down for the night, yes it sucks! Mom gave me her recipe for her yummy fruit cocktail and GOODNESS it’s good. I think I will have to share it with you soon on the blog because I can’t imagine you not eating this at least once in your life. We wrapped green beans in bacon earlier and they are all nestled in the fridge just dying to get thrown into the hot blazing oven then into our bellies! OH CRAP did I mention that I made some ridiculously good toffee candy? I know, I know I will share that with you too!

Anyways, I just wanted to take a moment out of my day to tell each and every one of you that I LOVE YOU and I am so blessed to have you all in my life! I really don’t know where I would be today without all of YOU! You have all changed my life and for that alone I am forever grateful. Best Christmas present any girl could as for…

I wish you and your family a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS. Yes, incase you were wondering that is ALL of our animals below minus a few chickens. Until my next post…. Huge Hugs, Jade

Hello!…Perfect Gifts for the Adele lover in your life . I have to admit that I am one of the MILLION humans on this earth that absolutely fell head over heels in love with Hello by Adele. It’s great to know that she is back and ready to mend millions of the broken hearts with her amazingly new album , 25.  Now let me be the first to tell you that when I drive in my car I turn this new and overplayed song up really loud and pretend I am in a forest like she was in the video. But when I wake up from the dream I am just on my way to Kroger to get toilet paper and chocolate. Yesterday me and my son were driving and I was belting Hello, and right when I the main verse came on I let it out LOUD with my Sprite Microphone and my clever son decided to press PAUSE on his phone. It was epic and horrible all at the same time. Check it out here, trust me you don’t want to miss out on this doozy.

In today’s post I wanted to do a fun roundup of “Hello” inspired gifts to get for your family and friends for Christmas. Some you can make which will make it nice if you can’t find these gifts in stores! Ready!

Did I mention that Adele just ruined the entire word HELLO for everyone! Anytime someone will tell me “Hello” I will always sing “How are You” in my head. SMH

HO HO HO it’s all about DIY Hand Painted Mugs today! It’s a cold night in Louisiana and I am typing this while watching the Kardashians and eating Taco Bell. I know you are all wishing you were in my shoes, NOT! I have a few things on my mind tonight. For starters I would like to meet the person who invented these new “star beam” lights that place little dots all over your entire house! Let’s face it who has time to put thousands of real lights all over their house? Not me! Although I will admit that all year long I have sugar plum visions of my house decorated like the ones in the mushy Hallmark movies.

I guess I should keep those visions in my head because I can execute them much better there, haha! OH, my good friend Aunt Peaches just did something incredible and I am so jelly but I will start manifesting us doing it together next year, check it out here! You will FLIP OUT!

Also incase you didn’t know I added some charm in my house this year with a RED Christmas Tree. I know…a RED ONE! You won’t believe how gorg it it y’all check it out here and see exactly what I am raving about! Also, is there such thing as TOO many trees in one’s house? I think I might be a little obsessed because I counted the ones in our dining room and I have 5. Yes they vary in size but still, who has that many trees in ONE room? I also have 3 in the kitchen, one in the living room and one in our main bathroom. I am sure you are all shaking your heads huh…

Let’s all make hot cocoa and drink out of cute mugs, especially the one I am showing you how to make today!
DIY Hand Painted Mugs

We are making some cute painted mugs using minimal products, literally. You all know I work for I Love to Create and all I will say is these markers have to be my favorite thing in the world lately. They are bright and fun so if you think this will be a boring roller coaster ride you are sadly mistaken.

You will need: Painted by Me Markers & Painted by Me Mugs (Bird Mugs)  diy mugs

Now rest assured, these markers are made so anyone can use them. You remember those paint pens that you would SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE and press the tip down on paper until the paint would slowly trickle down! These pens work the same way, but better! Hope you enjoy this project.  HOW TO PAINT ON MUGS

It’s really that simple. The reason why I love this project is because anyone can do it. Seriously you could have a paint party and it would be so much fun. Plus your mugs will be personal and every time you look at them you will have happy thoughts!


FYI: WHEN YOU ARE DONE PAINTING YOUR MUG YOU HAVE TO DO THIS….
*Place mug in a cold oven.
*Turn your oven to 350.
*Bake for 45 minutes.
*When timer goes off, leave the mug in the oven to cool off with the oven.


That it is! Now your mug is safe to handle, wash, put in the dishwasher or throw at someone… HAHA, don’t do that we wouldn’t want to ruin the mug for anything stupid!
CHICK MUG

These mugs I used today have a little bird on the handle and I love it. It’s like a thumb rest, seriously. Plus you can decorate the bird however you want.  homemade mug

These pom pom’s have absolutely NOTHING to do with this post but why not. Look how beautiful they are! My friend Alexa Westerfield sent me these! colored pom poms

polka dot mugs DIY Hand Painted Mugs are fun for the whole family so get everyone involved. Plus it’s nice to see your personal mugs in the cabinet when you grab one!

Happy Holiday’s Y’all! Hope you eat too much candy and drink a lot because I will!!! See you in the next post… XOXO Jade

***This Red Christmas Tree is brought to you by Treetopia – All opinions are 100% mine***

I am so honored to be on the Treetopia Design CounciI!  Today I am showcasing the Tango Red Lipstick Christmas Tree from Treetopia! If you are a fan of COLOR then you just found fake tree heaven, seriously! I will simply call it my BOHO Red Christmas Tree, mmmmkk!

I’ve always wanted a bright and whimsical tree but never found one that looked good in person until Treetopia came into my life. I know most of you will not understand what I am about to tell you but I truly had issues picking out the tree I felt I needed this Christmas. It took me about 3 days, I know I have issues. People this is serious business!

Once I finally decided on a tree I realized I had bigger issues figuring out what theme I would go with for this stunning red tree until I went in my studio and saw a collage of DIY tissue paper flowers. It dawned on me that I needed to dig deep into my tissue paper collection (yes I have one) and start busting out flowers. From there on I completely saw “the” vision in my head. A flower tree enhanced with a few spray painted pine cones and a handful of vintage glass ornaments…..I DID say BOHO!


red christmas tree

If you know anything about me then you know I am a fan of BRIGHT colors. I don’t have a preference I just love color. A few years ago we painted all the rooms in our house white and I just love it. For some reason it feels cleaner and it allows all of my gems to constantly POP! TISSUE PAPER FLOWERS

I love making paper flowers especially ones with black and white stripes bursting out of the centers! I will show you Friday how to make these flowers on the blog so make sure to come back! You don’t want to miss it.

If you are wondering if I went with a certain color theme for my flowers the answer is yes and no. I knew I wanted pink, green and orange….. the teal and white just made sense once I started. Trust me anything will look good on this tree! TREETOPIA TREE

I bought a bag of scented pine cones and spray painted them then dashed them with some shiny glitter! TREETOPIA RED TREE RAINBOW CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS

How beautiful are these miniature ornaments.
CHRISTMAS SCENTS

I always have a “Christmas Scent” and last year I found this one. Let me tell you it smells AMAZING! If you are wondering it doesn’t smell like a cigarette smoking hippie, haha!  BRIGHT RED TREE
