Mosaic 101! Well let me correct myself… It should be titled “Come see how easy it is to mosaic without using grout”… haha! Seriously if you are anything like me then you like to do things quick and fast. I tend to love instant gratification and this project will do the job. I created this project for I love to Create and it actually landed on television through the company! I will try to find the link and add it but in the meantime you can check out ALL of the projects I created for them HERE. The one thing I love about this project is the fact that it’s delicate yet still bold and full of of color. Color is the one thing in my life that brings true happiness to my soul. Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to get to the FULL tutorial! If you want to see another cool project I created using grout check this out!

Howdy Jaderbugs! It’s hump day and I have something fun I want to share with you. I created this Watercolor and Paint Pumpkin the other night and I have a confession to make. Usually when I create a project for YOU I take step by step pictures of the process however today is different. The other night we were working late in the studio and I decided to “play” with a few craft pumpkins for shits and giggles. I honestly had no intention of doing a project I just felt like dressing up a boring pumpkin. Once it was complete I thought it was butt ugly. I know, can you believe I thought that!

When I finished the pumpkin I put in on a table in the studio and C passed by and said she loved it. I said, SURE you do (haha). After a few words I realized she ready did and that made me smile. It spent the night on the table and the next morning when we went back to the studio I passed by it and I truly fell in love. I think we all know that feeling looking at something the next day and realizing the beauty in it. I decided to share it with you but I don’t have any step out pictures. It was very easy to make so I will list all of the steps and hopefully that will work for you. Enjoy!  Watercolor and Paint Pumpkin

Grab a kraft pumpkin from the craft store. You want to get the “cardboard” pumpkin so the watercolor will absorb in it. A plastic pumpkin will not work as well.

I used liquid water color, the pigment is much better.  how to water color

I also used this interference blue paint in the end. I will explain the steps below.  neon paint

Step 1: Add watercolor all over your pumpkin. You can use as many colors as you want. I used every color known to man kind. When you are done with this step let your watercolor dry completely.

Step 2: Now that your pumpkin is dry we can add our interference blue paint. You can use any other paint just make sure it’s iredescent. I used a palette knife to spread the paint all over my pumpkin. I wanted it to look sorta messy and thick. A brush will not create the same look y’all, trust me.

Step 3: I slathered (yes slathered) paint at the top of my pumpkin and sprinkled gold glass glitter all over it. Now if you don’t have glass glitter you can use any glitter you want but I will tell you if you have never used glass glitter then you are totally missing out.

Step 4: Sit back and stare at it. Seriously. Grab a drink and stare.

Holy Pumpkin Balls is time for me to share this year’s 20 DIY PUMPKIN TUTORIALS ! Is it really that time of the year and when did it creep into my life ever so effortlessly? Don’t get me wrong the smell of pumpkin/apple candles, nutmeg, freshly cut grass and pumpkin spiced coffee sends goose pimples down my legs but I am really concerned I will not get to enjoy it long enough…..Insert a big laugh here. It’s true because let’s face it as soon as we will get cozy with our Fall decor Santa will shoot rays of his presence right before our eyes. For now I will temporarily sink my soul in the thoughts of how many different pumpkin designs I can create, while I sip on a sweet crown and coke.

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
Cotton Ball Garland and my Candy Decorations

See that shiny gold candy picture!

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