Today it’s all about the infamous Watermelon. Not actually a real one, but one much better! One that will last for a few years if given lot’s of love and attention!

The other day I decided to go for a walk around the neighborhood and I stumbled across random pieces of wood (see below). One resembled a watermelon. It’s like the fruit gods sent it directly to me. My friend had a painted watermelon at her house a few years ago and I fell in love. All this wood needed was a little paint and then it would be complete. I know I have not added the seeds yet but that’s because I am still trying to decide if I want real seeds or painted seeds. What do you think I should do???

After I painted this lovely piece of wood it gave me an idea. Why not make Watermelon Pillows to dress up my outdoor space. There you have it folks. Needless to say I am now sorta addicted to watermelon’s and I want and need more of them, hehehe.

Happy Friday Jaderbugs! I couldn’t wait to share this amazing thing that happened yesterday. It is pretty awesome, at least for me it is. When I started my blog 2 1/2 years ago I never imagined it would end up defining me as a person. This blog, sorta saved me. It all started as a way to “show” the things I love. I had NO intention of ever having a DIY-Craft blog. Guess the Universe showed me, hehe.  I have always been crafty I just never realized that others could possibly enjoy the things I create as much as I do. I never understood this thing that my brain does. I can look at something and the thoughts just come flooding in. Sometimes they are so overwhelming that I have to jot them down just to remember them. If I don’t jot it down I feel like I might not ever think of it again. This is mainly how I create all of my crafts that I post on Jaderbomb. Don’t get me wrong, I get ton’s of inspiration from everything I encounter daily but I can’t ever stop thinking of ways to “change” things or simplify them. I love showing ways to use every day items to decorate your home with. There is something special that happens to a person when they see something beautiful that they made. It’s something a store bought item can’t ever give to you.

A few weeks ago I got an email from a friend asking if I wanted to be in an article about hosting a crafting party. Of course I said YES, while I was JUMPING all over the place. I didn’t know exactly what it was for or where it was going to be but I am down with anything crafty. The best thing is that I was able to do this with a good friend of mine, Lenore. She was the producer of my show when I was on Martha Stewart. Click here to check it out.

So here is the picture of the front page of Yahoo!Homes! I am SOOO excited you just can’t imagine! If you click on the picture below it will take you there. They featured my

I feel so blessed and can’t wait to share with you more amazing things happening in Jaderbomb land! Enjoy this good read.
