Quote of the day:
“Glad we are still alive to enjoy this pillow tutorial” -jaderbomb

Oh what a happy day! I had so much fun making this pillow and I know you will too. It’s obvious I love doing crafts that an adult or child could do by themselves or possibly together. I think there is something special that happens when you craft with your little ones. Trust me, they remember it!  I can’t tell you the last time I Tie Dyed something. I didn’t want to make a “shirt” because that is what everyone does. Making a basic tie dyed pillow sounded like the thing that would put a smile on my face!

Let’s get started with our Tie-Dyed Pillow.


This is what you will end up making. I like our bed to be completely white but every now and then it’s fun to give it a PUNCH of color!


I used the Tulip one step Tie Dye Kit.


It’s super easy to do because the bottles already come with powder in them. All you have to do is fill them up with water. Make sure to stop at the line. You don’t have to wear gloves but your hands will be stained if you don’t. Be creative when you put your rubber bands. After all, the bands are the things that break up the color so make it fun!



You can see I just started squeezing color onto my shirt in different spot. Remember that color chart from when you were a kid.
Red + Blue = Purple
Yellow + Blue = Green
Red + Yellow = Orange

The reason whey I want you to know this is because even if you only have a few colors you can make so many more by pairing them up with other colors. This is my favorite part.


This is my mess when I was done. You want to let it dry outside over night or 7-8 hours. I did mine in the afternoon so checking on it in 7 hours would of meant me getting up in the middle of the night….
Well. I decided it wouldn’t hurt a few more hours, haha. When you let it dry rinse it out, then wash it. Don’t wash with other clothes.


When you are done washing and drying lay your shirt out on a flat surface. Make sure you turn the shirt inside out. Lay your pillow down on top of the shirt. Get a piece of chalk and outline the pillow. Sew all of the sides except one. Cut all of the edges then turn the shirt right side out.

Stuff your pillow inside and then hand sew the side that we didn’t sew.
That’s it Jaderbugs!

I wanted to include this fun print for you. I thought it was so cute and perfect for this time of year!

Sending you and yours and HUGE hug from my family to your’s….


Happy Sunday! I have been crafting away lately and I realized I didn’t post anything since Friday! What’s wrong with me! I think I am loosing it (hahahah).

I absolutely love the craft I am posting today. I posted  a “hint” on facebook & twitter, and everyone was exited about it. Wanna know what the hint was? {{matches}}.

I don’t know about you but I LOVE using matches instead of those long donky lighters. Don’t get me wrong, when I need to light something that’s impossible to do with a little match I am happy I have a long donky lighter! Speaking of flames, remember my post I did the other day?

How to cut glass

Well. I am totally STOKED because in 4 days it has gotten over 74K views! WHAT! I know. I am just as excited as you! I think we can top this with this baby! But I need your help Jaderbugs! Let’s get started because today’s a big day! It’s Father’s Day, so Happy Father’s Day to all your “Faja’s” out there. Especially “happy” day to my {faja} and {faja-n-law}.  Yes, you MUST say Faaa-Juhhhhhhh like this! (hahahah)

Seriously. How.cute.is.this.

You will need a few things to make this!


I love using Mod Podge! Do you?

You know I am a HUGE fan of Martha Stewart products! ESPECIALLY her crafting tools! I am using her scissors, paint brush and glue gun today.

 I love, love, love MOD PODGE. It literally can go on top of ANYTHING and work! Check out my friends website MOD PODGE ROCKS!  Her book just came out it’s called Mod Podge Rocks! Stay tuned I will soon be doing a review and givewaye!!! 


How practical is this little crafty-roo!!

I hope you enjoyed this craft because it really is a “practical” thing to do. You know they come in those boxes and if you accidentally leave it outside the box get’s all soggy and soft. Then you can’t light a match because the matches all soggy and soft. This should eliminate most of that problem! And don’t worry, if you are wanting to do this for a “DUDE” just don’t bedazzle the top and make it in a color a “DUDE” would like. {{or if you are a DUDETTE who doesn’t like bedazzled things}}

You can find me in these spots too!!!! {{down below}}
