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!

Jewelry takes people’s minds off your wrinkles - Sonja Henie

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

BIG HUGS TO ALL OF YOU GLITTERY CRAFTERS! XOXO, JADE

You don’t have to carry a designer bag that costs more than a car to look cool.
-Kesha

Today I will teach you how to become a Fashion Blogger.  I totally think I missed my calling in life and you will completely see this in the pictures below.

Yes, that would be a high end fashion model… You don’t think?

My son actually took these pictures and we figured out two things after he took them.
1- He should be a high end fashion photographer (attention attention)
2- He know’s all about shutter speed (or this was just luck)

Who’s ready to see the REAL way to take pictures of “bags” for your BLERG.

Check out my tie dyed shirt I did for Old Navy and this canvas bag for I love to Create. Click on the links and you will see the FULL tutorial.

EXAMPLE 1: STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD WITH BAG SLIGHTLY COVERING THE TOP PART OF YOUR LEGS.
fashion blogger  EXAMPLE 2: STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF ROAD AND HOLD BAG WITH A SLIGHT SEXINESS TO IT AND JUMP STRAIT UP IN THE AIR. CAREFUL NOW THIS CAN BE DANGEROUS.  fashion pictures EXAMPLE 3: STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD TOUCH THE BAG WITH ONE HAND LIKE YOU ARE PROTECTING IT FROM ALIENS WHILE OTHER HAND IS BENT AND SEXY. P.S. DON’T FORGET TO BEND ONE KNEE, NOT TWO. JUST ONE.  how to pose for pictures EXAMPLE 4: STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD AND JUMP STRAIT UP WITH KNEES BENT.  REMEMBER WE STILL NEED TO LOOK WHIMSICAL AND SEXY ALL WHILE KEEPING THE BAG IN THE PICTURE. WE CAN SEE I OBVIOUSLY SUCCEEDED HERE.  jumping in pictures  EXAMPLE 5: STAND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WHILE HOLDING YOUR BAG AND PRETEND TO RUN AFTER A CAB WHILE SMILING AND POINTING YOUR TOES. learn to run in pictures
EXAMPLE 6: RUN ACROSS THE ROAD WHILE TRYING TO DO A SPLIT IN THE AIR ( BUT NOT TOO MUCH )

MAKE SURE TO CUT THE HEAD OFF OF THE PICTURE. THIS WILL TOTALLY GET YOU THAT GAP CONTRACT YOU HAVE BEEN WANTING. KENDI CAN PROLLY HELP ME ON THIS ONE.  learn to take action shots  EXAMPLE 7: STICK YOUR ARMS OUT AND PLACE THE BAG IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE. I RECOMMEND WEARING A LITTLE BIT OF MAKEUP FOR THIS ONE.  picture shots for bloggers  EXAMPLE 8: STAND SIDEWAYS AND HANG YOUR BAG ALMOST TO THE GROUND ON THE SIDE OF YOUR BODY. posing for action shots  EXAMPLE 9: FACE THE CAMERA WHILE HOLDING BAG IN FRONT OF YOU. REMEMBER THE KEY IS TO LOOK AS UN-NATURAL AS POSSIBLE. posing with bags for pictures  EXAMPLE 10: THIS IS THE MOMENT YOU GIVE IT YOUR ALL WHILE THE MAN IN THE BACKGROUND UNLOADS A DRESSER FROM A TRUCK. TRY TO MAKE YOUR HAIR FLOAT IN THE PICTURE SO YOU LOOK LIKE A DISNEY PRINCESS.  How to become a Fashion Blogger I mean, I will be honest with you. It’s that easy to become a fashion model. If I can make it so can you. Stay tuned for the next photo shoot with a really cool Old Navy Striped Dress.

Today it’s all about my trip to Old Navy and this fabulous Powder Dyed Shirt. Let’s be real, when you add Tie-Dye to anything you get a bundle of happiness. Here is PROOF! Powder Dyed Shirt When I was asked by I love to Create to make a fabulous DIY with some of Old Navy’s new line of spring clothes I was JUMPING FOR JOY, literally. I had no clue what I was planning on creating until I walked in the store. I think for a minute I was upset I only had to create ONE thing once my eyes saw the new spring line. I know you will love this powder dyed technique I used so let’s check it out.  k Be sure what you want and be sure about yourself. Fashion is not just beauty, it’s about good attitude. You have to believe in yourself and be strong
-Adriana Lima

As you can see there were so many choices. I knew I wanted crisp and bold so I ended up going with this “Textured-Dobby Shirt”. Since I am using Tulip Tie-Dye I made sure the shirt was 100% cotton. I almost bought these white pants and pink button down but I changed my mind in the end.
111.jpg
Wahoo! Time to check out and CREATE! Yep, you see that black and white striped ball? I can’t wait to show you what I created with this.  11.jpg
You will need:
* Tulip Tie-Dye
Women’s Textured-Dobby Shirts
whiteshirt
I am using the Mini Tie-Dye Kit. DSC_0139 As you can see the bottles have powder inside of them already. We will not fill the bottles with water for this project.  DSC_0141 STEP ONE: Fill a bowl with water and wet your shirt.  learn to tie dye
STEP TWO: Twist water out of shirt and lay it down on a clean surface, flat and unbuttoned. Lay your shirt on a garbage bag if you can’t find a clean spot.

STEP THREE: Remove cap from bottle and lightly shake bottle over wet shirt. The powder will slowly start coming out of the bottle.  kids crafts
I used all of the colors in the pack. If you are not a fan of bright colors you can use one or two colors. This technique looks great with a single color or multiple colors.  how to mix dye I love how all of the colors start bleeding together. If you know me then you know bright it right!  mixing colors You want to let the powder sit on the wet shirt for a couple of hours. The longer it sits the brighter the colors will be.  confetti tie dye
I simply love the dye that was left behind. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  DSC_0202 After a few hours I rinsed my shirt under cool running water then washed it separately. WOWZERS! I am so happy with the way it turned out.  DSC_0193 old navy tie dyed shirt DSC_0195
This shirt looks great paired with anything.  POWDER DYED SHIRT craftgawker

I hope you enjoyed this post.
Have you ever dyed anything using the powder????
