I can’t wait to show you today how I made a dog bed out of an old television. It’s the best dog bed in my eyes and I know you re going to love it. Some beds for dogs are not the coziest and I figured out a way to make a cozy one that’s great for cat’s too. It’s pretty simple to make which makes it nice. I am loving how unique it looks. Most dog beds can look a little generic but not this one. It’s a Jaderbomb dog bed!

How cute is Ceaux Ceaux here! She loves her new bed so much. I think certain dogs like to be in small spaces because it makes them feel safe and secure. Ceaux Ceaux is part beagle and terrier and they love being in a small spaces. I drove up one day at home and my neighbor had this T.V. at the road. I don’t know why I wanted it but I knew it would be something cute. Once I got it home I started to gut it out it. Then I realized it could be a dog bed. Right! It’s really simple to make so let’s get started!

How_to_make_a_dog_bed

1. The first thing you will do is find an old T.V.

2. See how your animal looks in it,hehe

3. Gut out the entire thing!

4. Start painting it the color of choice. I like things to look “clean and crisp” so white is what I chose.
It’s really that simple. You can also paint or decorate the inside to add your personal touch.

Just thought I would share with you my roses. I have this crazy habit that forces me to buy fresh flowers every week. Trust me they usually take me from 1 to 100 in about five minutes. The good thing about flowers is you can choose different ones each week depending on your mood, how you feel or colors you are attracted to. I always have different ones but my FAVORITE flower is the stargazer lily.

Well I am so excited to share some pics I shared on Instagram this week! If you are not following me just look me up: my user name is JADERBOMB.
How was your weekend? Is anyone else having trouble getting back into the swing of things with the kids being off for so long, I know I am!

1.  I love this picture because it never fails. I always find glitter or confetti either in my hair or on the floor. I took some photos this week and there was confetti involved! Hour’s later I found a few hidden in the nest.

2. Our water machine. I had to take this picture because I completely gave up my favorite thing in the world which is Dr. Pepper! Wuhhh! I gave it up 100%. I feel so much better which I already knew I would but Dr. Pepper is my weakness. Working from home can be hard at times because you are in your comfort zone, it’s easy to just grab a Dr and sit at your computer for hours. So this water jug was put in Friday at 12pm, this picture was taken Friday at 8pm. I drank that much water in ONE day! Our water man came this morning and I usually get one jug but I got 3 today. Eeekk, he just looked at me and I laughed. I know all that sugar is bad for me and I don’t want to do that to my body anymore. Did you give up anything for the New Year that you miss SO much already? Let me know in the comment section below, I would love to know.

3. Ceaux Ceaux laughing at me when I told her I am not drinking Dr.P anymore. No, just joking she just smiles when I put the camera in her grill. What? You don’t know Ceaux Ceaux (co-co).. Check out her blog HERE and her Facebook HERE.

4.  Our new piece of technology in the house. Jaderbugs, you have to get one. It is so amazing! You can monitor it from your phone which means if you are cold in bed you can turn the heat up FROM BED. Lazy, yes. Smart, yes. Check it out HERE.

5.  The other morning I was sitting in my car about to get out when all of a sudden something flew up and hit me on my neck. I immediately looked like I was
a: dancing to some hip hop song on the radio
b: dancing to some cray cray song in my head
or
c: freaking out because I felt something fly on me
When I realized it was a lady bug I instantly smiled and made sure I didn’t kill the lil sucker. I mean you don’t just fly on me and expect my instant dance moves to not to splatter you. Not smart lady bug, not smart. Good news is she lived and made it on my instagram.

6.  We collect vintage signs. I love these two from Pop Stew. He used to work at a gas station and these were the signs they put up at the tanks. Cool ey!

7.  Remember earlier when I said I don’t drink Dr. P anymore? Well I forgot to tell you I gave up eating babies too. Here is my yummy egg whites that I ate while drinking WATER.

8.  Me and Ceaux on our bike ride through our lovely city. It is so much fun to ride bikes when it’s FREEZING outside, right! (SMH)

9.  Yep, I rode around just like this. I kept wondering why everyone was staring at me but I guess they thought I looked dangerous. Ya know, me and my dog with a decorative leash. Rarwwwww

10.  Sorry Bill. This is my cute Dr. Not Dr. Pepper tho! He prolly wouldn’t like if I drank him. He texted me and said “guh you better not post those pics on your site”. I said OK. Bill if you are reading this, it’s because I love ya! Ladies, he is single and can crack a back like nobody in this world.

11. Oh, Co. Yeah any room we go in the door get’s shut. Somehow this extraordinary nose can open every single door. The thing is, she pops her nose in just like this and does not make a noise. She will stay like this for 15 minutes strait. Half of the time you think you are alone, but you are not. I think she holds her breath too, haha!

12. My friend Sue introduced me to water color crayons. I know I thought the same thing. How could I be an Artist for so long and not know these suckers exist. I love water color and now I love water color crayons. Check them out HERE.

13. A preview of a recipe that will be on the blog this week! It’s a yummy one!

14. Yep, our tree trimmings are up in flames. Lil one loves to burn leaves because they make a cool crackling sound.

15. Is it weird that I wish I still had this awesome pleated skirt. I think it’s so cute. #tbt

16. My little man that greets me every time I wash dishes. I usually put soap on here but I had to change it up a little.

17.  I love posting quotes on here and my facebook. I think you can tell. Quotes just make me happy. They give me inspiration daily.  I know they are words but I promise if you put quotes up everywhere will make you feel great.

18.  I am happy to end my instagram recap with this one. It’s free and easy to do. Sometimes you don’t realize what a smile can do to a person. You never know what is going on in a person’s life or that day. Your smile could make them feel noticed and all mushy inside. I usually smile at myself when I pass in front of a mirror. Who said smiling at myself won’t make me feel better. Trust me it works.

Well Jaderbug’s I hope you enjoyed seeing my week through the eyes of Instagram. Stay tuned this week I have some NEW VALENTINE crafts going up and they are cuh-yute.
See ya in the next post,

Happy Happy Friday Jaderbugs!!!!! I am so excited to show you this recipe. My little family loves when I make pancakes. We got this baby cakes maker and I can’t lie, we were not sure it would make PERFECT cake balls. But it did. We actually tried to make spiderman cake balls. EPIC FAIL. Decorating a BALL is much harder than it looks! I would post a picture of them but you might change your opinion about me (paaahahah)

The recipe I am posting today is super easy and if you don’t like Nutella, you simply don’t have to put it. I am pretty much IN LOVE with the stuff so watch out! We are making NUTELLA PANCAKE BALLS!

 

INGREDIENTS:

The ingredients are pretty basic. That makes it easier, a lot easier! I remember when I was a little girl, my mom made the BEST pancakes! That is prolly why I love them so much to this day!

Start by mixing your oil, egg and 1 cup of mil together until it’s well blended. In a separate bowl sift flour, baking powder,nutmeg, sugar and salt together. When you are done sifting, you can add the flour mixture to the milk mixture. Blend very well.

When you are done mixing all of the milk mixture and flour mixture add in that extra little tablespoon of milk.

Instead of using a frying pan for this sucker I am using this amazing Baby Cake’s Cake Ball maker. I know what your thinking. This is not cake balls. Guess what! You can use this sucker for ANYTHING. Which is why I am loving it more and more each day. Ashy made cornbread balls the other day when she made homemade chili. Can we say DELISH! Baby Cakes cooked them SO good! They were bite size which means they were perfect for single bites! Everyone ate the cornbread balls before the chili was gone! So, after this I thought. Why not make pancake balls. Let me tell ya. CUHRAZY good. If you don’t have one you can purchase it at Bed, Bath and  Beyond. It’s only $19.99! Get one here!!!!

I like to pour my batter into a ziplok bag. It makes is SO easy to pour out!

 Right after I pour my batter in I start squeezing my Nutella right in the middle. Yes, I put my Nutella in a Ziplok bag too! It makes it super easy. One hint tho, you want to go QUICK when doing this step! It starts cooking them right away and you want to close the top as soon as possible!

Even Ceaux Ceaux had fun watching the whole family do this. I think she was laughing in her head at us!  Don’t forget to check out her blog!

I hope you enjoyed this fun recipe!

Sending you lot’s of hugs and positive energy,

 WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FLAVOR PANCAKE SYRUP?

Wowzers!!! I can’t believe it is already THURSDAY!!! RIGHT! I have been having so much fun making all of these crafts for you {{and for me}}!  The other morning while I was making my coffee I ran out of creamer. {wahhhhh}.  So the typical routine is to throw the empty bottle away, right! That is exactly what I would have normally done {UNTIL} my lightbulb went off! I thought “how cool would it be to use these instead of throwing them away..
And here you have it! JUST FOR YOU my little jaderbugs.
I hope you enjoy!!!
Ingredients:
 The pieces do NOT have to be a certain size.  Use the size you like.
  Are you having fun yet? OH and I am using “sparkle” Mod Podge!!!! When it dries it is full of GLITTER!!!
  Don’t worry about being perfect! It’s about having fun!!!
 This is what it will look like still damp!
 OMGJB {{ohmygodjaderbomb}} HOW FLIPPING FULL OF CUTENESS  ARE THESE LITTLE SUCKERS.
Wishing my coffee pot could bring me another cup of coffee,


If you want to decorate your dog’s bowl in a very unique way then this is what you need! I have to tell ya, I did this baby twice. First time I did it just like Martha. I put it down to take a picture and Co ran up to it thinking I was putting “food” down. Yep it smeared all over her and ALL over the bowl. I tried to wipe it all off before it dried and I was not successful.  I had to change the look of the name. It’s a little more “bubbly” than I wanted but I had so much fun making it! 4 days left Jaderbugs till the 100 day’s of Martha is OVER! Can you believe I have been doing ONLY MARTHA STEWART crafts for 100 day’s! It feels crazy that I have not done Jaderbomb crafts in that time period. I guess I didn’t realize how much Martha would be involved in my life! I mean, if you thought I loved her then…Just think how much I love her now. I practically eat, drink and sleep Martha Stewart. You know what I am doing after the 10th? Sleeping. I might not step ONE foot into my studio for a couple of days jaderbugs. Momma’s tired!

Ingredients: Ceramic bowl, Ceramic Paint.

I got my bowl at Pet Smart and it was only 4 bucks! My vitrea paint was purchased at Michaels! Links below…

Dog bowl. Vitrea paint. Remember, you can use ANY bowl that you have. It doesn’t have to be this one. I just liked this baby because it was plain.

Sorry Jaderbugs that I only have 2 pics and not “in the process” pictures. Remember Co messed up my first one so I didn’t want to post pics of two different bowls. You can totally see how easy it is to do. When I first did it I used some carbon paper and applied her name onto the bowl using that. It just helps your image to go on strait. After Co messed it up I just painted big letters over it!

I also put TONS of polka dots because there were little black marks all over it. Can you imagine what Co looked like! Let’s just say she took a bath right after! I hope you have fun with this craft. Remember, if you want to make memories put the bowl down by your pet. HAHA~

Still loving on my ceramic paint eating dog,

DIY- Pet-Silhouette Tote Bag

Keep your pet — or at least his image — at hand all the time, and show everyone just how cute he is. Adorn a bag with a silhouette of his profile. Ultra suede fabric doesn’t fray, so it’s simple to work with, and twill tape, used for the collar and leash, is easy to shape. If you want to use different fabric you absolutely can!

I love my baby girl Ceaux Ceaux! You know she has a blog! You should check it out. She does LOT’S of fun things!!

Grab a bag you want to use

I love Martha Stewart’s all purpose scissors! They cut flawlessly!

Photocopy picture, enlarging so that dog is about two-thirds the height of the bag; cut out along dog’s outline. I drew my baby girl instead of printing a picture! But it works the same way!

This is what your image should look like when you are done cutting it out. My baby girl’s nub is so cute!

Lay photo cutout, face up, on front of fabric, and trace with fabric pen.

Ceaux Ceaux is all cut out!!!

I used this stencil adhesive for the dog. I coated the back side with this spray and then stuck it where I wanted it on the bag. This stuff is magic!

This is where I stuck her!

Does it look like her? HAHA! She wasn’t too happy about me stepping on “HER” outdoor rug. She kinda looked at me like “guh get of my rug with that ugly bag”…But Martha loved it so whatever CO!

Martha Stewart Countdown #51 Gumdrop Pops

Howdy Jaderbugs! I can’t believe today is almost over with. Where does time go and who gave them permission to take it so quickly…I just want to warn you before doing this craft! You will be cutting and rolling pieces of gum drops the entire time and I suggest putting a wet wash cloth by you unless you plan on licking your fingers the entire time {{like I did}}…..Then you will be pouncing off of the walls! So let’s get started {{i feel like a real live gum drop people}}….

I used some plain ole spice drops. I really forgot how much these suckers stick to your teeth…I think that is why our parents told us they were bad for our teeth {{duhhh now I know why}}…

Grab some skewers! These babies will hold the spice drops!

I used a razor blade to cut the spice drops. These suckers are hard to cut!

I don’t know about you but I WISH I had enough time to make hundreds of these and hand them out to my neighbors…. Obvisouly this one is not done.. Well, technically it “could” have been done but someone could have “ate” his parts… Were gonna go with NOT DONE.  I listed the directions for each design below for you!

For Santa
Use top half of 1 small gumdrop for hat. Trim 2 oblong candies for arms. Use candy-coated seeds for buttons and pom-pom. Poke candy where facial features will go with a skewer; use sticky tip to pick up and place nonpareils for eyes and nose.

For Tree
Use 1 flattened gumdrop for base of tree. Use 1 small gumdrop for trunk. Cut sides from 1 gumdrop; press sides around top of stick, for treetop. Flatten 1 gumdrop; using an aspic cutter, cut out star. Insert sprinkles for lights.

For Snowman
Trim top of head; top with 1 candy wafer and half of 1 small gumdrop for hat. Using a skewer (see “For Santa”), place nonpareils for eyes, mouth, and buttons. Insert sprinkle for nose.

For Mushroom
Use 1 small gumdrop for stem. Use sequin sprinkles for dots.

You can’t tell me you didn’t feel good when you first looked at these honeysuckles. I felt good when I ate one… JS

Martha Stewart Countdown #44 Suede Doggie Coat

OH my LAWD! I finally saw breaking dawn today and lemme tell you it was SOOOOO good! I almost freaked out at the end when Bella’s eyes just popped open. I just am not sure how long I can handle waiting for the next part. Why do they do that? I mean the Titanic was like 3 hours long! Don’t get me wrong the Titanic was “it” back in the day! But in THIS day, we want to see blood sucking hot people! {{at-least I do}}

Guess I will have to wait another year for part 2…

Let’s start crafting! This crafteroo was so funny because I kept trying it on Ceaux Ceaux to make sure it was right! She HATED it. Every time I went near her she would try and grab it out of my hand and take off with it. Did I mention she is the fastest dog in the world? Check out her blog HERE and her you tube video HERE!!! I’m telling this baby girl is FUNNY!

Tools and Materials

1/3 yard of fabric (for a 20-pound dog)
Scissors
Erasable fabric marker
Four buttons
Needle and thread

I used some felt because it’s very affordable and you can choose from LOTS of colors! I just used two sheets of felt and sewed them together because Co is long!

After you sew the felt together it’s time to cut your strips that go around the neck and across the bottom!

This is what your strip should look like after you cut it. Drape over dog.  Mark where buttons will hold the straps, across the lower neck and behind the front legs.

I used some old vintage buttons that I had. Sew buttons onto main piece; cut slits in straps. (As dog grows, make longer straps.)

Ceaux Ceaux was so distracted. I wonder if dog’s can be ADD! This thing on her is SOO funny!

She was SO awkward and didn’t know how to move! She just stood there and moved her eyeballs!!! To think there were people out there that didn’t love this dog like she needed to be loved is unreal to me! She’s just amazing!

Seriously. How could you not love this face! I swear she did NOT move until I took it off! I hope this craft is fun and easy for you!

Martha Stewart Countdown #36 Cozy Travel Cushion for Pets

What’s upppp Jaderbugs! It’s such a pretty day outside! I could not wait to post this craft because I just knew everyone out there would be able to do it and it’s a perfect Christmas gift. Last week Martha’s dog’s tweeted me about this craft and I meant to post it earlier but due to a death in the family I kinda got sidetracked. {{so sorry Francesca and Sharkey}} Wanna meet them? OK!

Read more about Francesca HERE

Read more about Sharkey HERE

They really are the cutest things ever! Plus, they are totally into computers like Ceaux Ceaux.. If you don’t know who Ceaux Ceaux is you can read her blog HERE… She is my dog and FABULOUS!
There are a few things you will need to do this craft. A towel, batting and embroidery thread. OH! Plus lots of doggie love. Let’s get started!

I bought 2 towels thinking I would use one color on each side. Ya know, dark blue so you don’t see if it get’s dirty and light blue {{for show}}. Smart huh! HOWEVER. I only used 1 towel. I didn’t realize how big they were and my Co isn’t that big. But I still plan on making the light one so she looks pretty on it! Co is spoiled. Seriously.

 Since I used 1 towel I just folded it in half and sewed the 2 sides together. Leave one side open so you can slide the batting inside. See how I did it? Super easy. I doubled up my batting so it was really comfy for her.

 I used an off white embroidery thread. Make sure you get the right needle (embroidery needle) for this because it needs to be tough to go through all of the layers. You will push the needle through to the bottom and after just pass it back through to the top. Tie a knot to secure the thread. Your doing this to the batting does not move around inside of the towel. VOILA!

 So, I put it down and CO just went right on it. It’s like she knew it was for her. She does this “stretching thing” and she was totally doing it here.

Then all of a sudden she started doing her yoga. Yes. She does yoga. Did you know dog’s can do that? Click here to read more!

Last was the look. I don’t know how she does it. Maybe it’s the mixture of the eyes, moles and hair coming out all over her face. What cha think? CUTE or WHAT! I hope you enjoyed this craft because I did!

I hope you get loads and loads of puppy dog eyes today, your JADERBOMB
