Remember a while back when I told you about my bestie Ed Roth and his new product line coming out this year? I am so excited to show you an exclusive sneak peek of the new Stencil1 collection. I am pretty much in love with the entire collection and I am positive you will too!
Today I will show you how to create your own stenciled coasters. These are super easy and so affordable you can make them for everyone you know!
Let’s get started BIG PICTURE FOR SITE AND PINTEREST

You will need:
Craft Paint | Craft Brush | Wooden Coasters | Mod Podge | Stenciling brush/ pouncer | Adhesive Spray |  Stencil 1 Stencil

You can purchase all of these craft products from one spot by clicking on these affiliate links.  STENCILCOASTERS I absolutely love all of the colors I am using from FolkArt! The colors are SO bright and bold and beautiful! The great news is this paint can be used for many things. Glass, wood, plastic and pretty much anything else! FOLK ART PAINT STEP ONE:  The first thing you will do is place your wooden coaster on a clean surface. I like using paper plates for things like this. Squirt a little red paint on your wooden coaster and cover the entire coaster. When you are done with the first color move on to the next.  painted wood diy  Anything rainbow makes me super happy!  RAINBOW CRAFTS
STEP TWO:  One all of your coasters are dry squirt some white paint on a paper plate. Grab your stenciling brush and put a little white paint on it.
how to stencil
STEP THREE:  I like to spray the back of my stencil with a spray adhesive to add a little stickiness to it. It will stick better to the wood but you do NOT have to use this.

STEP FOUR:  Gently start pouncing your wooden coaster with the brush. Make sure you do it in an up and down motion.  ed roth stencils
STEP FIVE: When you are done immediately peel off the stencil. You won’t believe your eyes when you see it! homemade crafts
STEP SIX:  Move onto your next color.  learn to stencil stencil crafts
Are you in love with this! I like to recycle so I used the same plate for each color, yo! Don’t forget to touch up the sides when you are done.  finger painting
STEP SEVEN:  I like to seal everything with Mod Podge.  mod podge diy How beautiful are these coasters! I am so happy for my friend Ed and his creations!  rainbow coasters

Ready for me to show you how to feel AWESOME by watching a few videos ♥First let me tell you that today I had an “ok” day. I went to bed last night 100¾% ready for the “BLOOD MOON”. So ready I set my alarm to wake up an experience this amazing event. Usually when spectacular things like this happen I try to make it a spiritual event for myself. So, I wrote down all of my intentions and things I wanted to release then I went to bed. My alarm went off at 2:42 AM and I walked outside – into pure disappointment. Not only was it COLD (WTF Louisiana) but it was also cloudy. Yep you guessed it, the only thing bloody was my blood shot eyes. Out of anger I didn’t go over my list of things and burn it as planned but I convinced myself that I was still cool with the Universe since I wrote it before I went to bed. Right!? Oh these will also make you feel awesome.

Inspirational quote

♥♥♥ I ran across a few pretty amazing videos today and wanted to share them with you.

The first video brought TEARS to my blood shot eyes and made me feel super happy inside. I think we all struggle with fear. I mean, I do daily especially lately. Fear can sometimes stop me in my tracks and force me to second guess everything in my life, past or present. Anyways. Please watch this video all the way to the end because it’s totally worth it. Grab a cup of JOE in this and it will make you feel warm and cozy while watching these.


It’s about two women, An and Ria who are willing to take a big risk and try something new. They learned how to be free, have fun, share a lifetime experience and feel EMPOWERED with millions of viewers watching. I love how Vodafone is celebrating stories of #Firsts. Surely this video will make you smile and maybe shed a few tears of happiness. After all, aren’t we supposed to always be happy!

The second video literally had me baffled at first just WAITING for the insertion of a joke at any given moment until the end of the video. IT MADE ME SO EMOTIONAL. I’ll blame that on the dang blood moon, k. But seriously let me know how this video made you feel in the comment section below! You will just SHAKE YOUR HEAD when it’s over. I hope this makes your heart smile. I sat down tonight to share it with my son who is almost 14 and he actually got teary eyed….. smiled then hugged me. Insert: BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD 

I also ran across this video that made me super uuber full of yummy goodness in my belly and teary eyed at the same time. Why is it when you combine animals in a video that are purely driven by faith its makes us cry. Oh, wait… Am I the only one that cries for stuff like this? The reason I wanted to share this video with you is because it proves to us that no matter what, if the drive inside of us is strong and we have TON’S and dern TON’S of faith ANYTHING is possible.

I hope I made you happy and smile from ear to ear. Remember when life throws you lemons, freaking throw them back and always wear perfume to bed! See you in the next post my little Jaderbugs!

sponsored-post Howdy Jaderbugs today I will show you how to make the coolest duck tape frame! I do a duck tape post each month and we all know if I could wrap myself in duck tape I would! Especially all of their new designs. I love duck tape because I can transform things in my home within minutes like this frame! Don’t forget to enter my giveaway at the bottom of the post!

Today I will show you an easy way to dress up a frame using the Duck Brand’s new DUCK FABRIC mini rolls. The design I am using in this tutorial is Coral Stripe. I am completely in love with the colors and the pattern. I believe this could go in anyone’s space very easily.

Candice Alexander who is a famous artist and is known for her Fleur De Lis – World’s Within Series. You can find her beautiful work online where you will be stumped with ton’s of decisions to make. Everything on her website is locally made at her studio in Lake Charles, La. That alone is a nice treat! Did I mention she recently got commisioned to do a piece for Keith Urban and personally gave it to him? Check it out HERE!

Duck Tape Frame

You will need:
*Frame of choice. I like using a distressed frame so the edges show a little  character.
*Fabric Duck Tape
*Scissors

distressed frame supplies Dress up a frame
Step ONE: Cut a piece of tape that is long enough to hang off both ends of the frame.
Step TWO: Peel the backing off of your fabric tape. Make sure to do it carefully so it does not stick to the other end of the tape.  duck tape fabric tape
Using a distressed frame gives the sides some texture also.

How awesome is this print! You can do so much with it aside from making a wallet! These designs are screaming for any adult to play with them! Scouts HONOR! (hehe) How to use Duck Tape Step THREE: Cut all the of the tape that hangs over the edge of frame.
I really love the look of this frame and it’s so easy to create. The good news is this fabric tape can be pulled off when you are tired of it and you can put another design down. MAGICAL! scissors to cut duck tape

Hey everyone! I am just getting back from the most amazing trip ever and I wanted to share this tutorial with you on making Color Blocked Gold Bracelets . I will be sharing more about the my trip later this week so make sure to come back and check it out!

If you are like me then you can sometimes be cheap! Very cheap!

I personally call it being “smart”, right. I found a set of gold bracelets a while back at Old Navy and bought them. Check out what I was REALLY doing there when I found them.  I wasn’t sure exactly what I would do with them but I knew I would figure it out and it would be RAD. If you like gold check out this cute gold flag banner I made for a cake.

I finally decided I wanted to add a splash of color to them. Finger nail polish is the best thing to apply to metal because it stays on for a LONG time. Let’s get started. Color Blocked Gold Bracelets How beautiful are these bracelets. I knew they would be a hit on my vacation and now I am madly in love with them. I think I need about 10 more on my wrist.

You will need:
1. Nail Polish
2. Gold Bracelets or Gold Chain HOW TO PAINT METAL JADERBOMB I am using Covergirl outlast stay brilliant nail polish. I am in love with all of their colors and they fit perfectly with my smile!

If you want to purchase all of the colors from one spot make sure to click my affiliate links below! The colors I am using in this post are:
1. Mint Mojito 285
2. Snow Storm 110
3. Go-Go Mango 245
4. Salt Water Taffy (not sure of number) FINGERNAIL POLISHED JEWELERY

COVERGIRL NAIL POLISH DIY

15 gold diy's Step 1:  Lay out your gold bracelet on a clean surface and coat one side with nail polish. painting gold bracelts Move on to the next one and remember to coat one side at a time. It doesn’t take too long for the polish to dry. In 10 minutes you can flip it over and do the other side. I like to do about 2 good coats  of each color. My goal is to give it a matte finish.  how to paint You can see below how it will look if you only do one side of the bracelet. Depending on the links I would decide if I wanted to do both sides on some of them.  diy bracelets One tip I have when storing bracelets is to sling them over the top of a really cool jar. You can find these at garage sales or vintage stores. Plus it looks really pretty.  EASY KIDS CRAFTS
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and you tell all of your friends about it…. NOW GO COLOR BLOCK! EASY COLOR BLOCKED JEWELERY
