Martha Stewart Countdown #37 Christmas Cloche

Last night I broke out the Christmas decorations! I swear this year I started so late. What? You don’t put up your Christmas decorations the day after Halloween?  Me either lol!  BUT…I usually put them up like 2 weeks before Thanksgiving. It’s funny because I used to be on the dot with “traditions”. I grew up putting up the tree the day after Thanksgiving. I think people start Christmas so early that they tend to forget about giving “thanks”. I don’t though. I am just decorating early for a HUGE birthday party! I love love love Christmas. Maybe it’s the vision I have in my head from all the {{Chiristmas}}movies I watched when I was little. Although, I must say I think I am living up to my visions 100%. I do want to say one thing that bothers me. I really don’t like how Christmas has become all about the money. I believe “retail” stores forget about the meaning and only think about how much more they can make this year. OH! I also don’t like when people write “X-mas”… Really? Is it that hard to write CHRISTMAS? What does the X stand for anyways? X marks the spot? Maybe I missed that but Christ is why we are celebrating! We need to remember that. Life maybe not be all that you thought it would be but with Christ, your life will be awesome with what was given to you.

Did you know that I heard black friday is called that because that is the day they get out of the RED! LOL….. Cuh-razy…. I guess it’s the day WE GO IN THE RED…

The craft I am doing today is super dooper fun and it’s so crazy because I did it last night without knowing that it was even a Martha craft! So I said “guh you betta use this”… and I did.

I just had these babies laying around and when I saw them I thought they were be perfect to put balls in! It’s super easy! All you have to do is turn the jar upside down and fill it with whatever ornaments you have. Yep! That simple!

 Have fun putting all of your CHRISTMAS ornaments up!!!

Sending you a big ole house full of love, your one and only JADERBOMB

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

Martha Stewart Countdown #35 Astronomical Accent

Hey my JADERBUGS! How are y’all doing tonight! I am {{totally}} making like 100 more of these babies. I saw this craft in Martha’s December issue and I just could not pass it up! I have a feeling all of my jaderbugs are gonna be glittering it up this weekend! Let’s get started!

 You will need a couple of things to begin. {{drummm rolllll}}… Scissors, paint brush, paint, scrapbook paper, tinsel glitter, scoring board, hole puncher, template

Seriously. How pretty is this tinsel glitter! When they sent me these babies I could not craft fast enough! OH, and I am so amazed at how awesome this scoring board works. They have detailed measurements on it and a little compartment for you to store the bone folder tool in… SO MUCH FUN. I mean, who doesn’t like tons of compartments. I always seem to do that to everything in my life then I forget what compartment I put it in to begin with.

The instructions online may SEEM confusing but they really aren’t . I put a picture of each step to try and make it easier for you to follow. If you click on the picture it will enlarge and you can see it better!

Measure and cut the watercolor paper to make two 20-inch squares. Use a bone folder to fold 1 square as shown in this diagram; in the last step, measure four inches up from center and mark a line to each corner and cut along that line. Unfold shape; it will be a star. Repeat to create a second star.

 When you are ready to start glittering just grab a brush and coat with paint. You want to make sure your paint is wet when you sprinkle glitter so it sticks. I have to admit that using tinsel glitter is way different than using Martha’s regular glitter. If you want to use the tinsel glitter I suggest using Mod Podge instead of paint.

Let it dry over night! {{truh-rust-me}}. I tried to rush the project so I could get it up for you but eh eh…Once it is completely dry you will line the crease in each point with hot glue and hold together till it’s dry. This will give you that crisp point on top of the star. See! How cool is this! I never knew I could make a star but not I will be whipping these suckers out!

r

 I wanted to use some pretty ribbon then I remembered I had all of this pretty string. I love bright colors!

 WELL!!! Whaduyuh think!

  I am absolutely in love with it! I think I will make some with glow in the dark paint! I hope you enjoyed this craft and you make 4000 of them tonight!

Sending you stars hanging over you while you sleep, your JADERBOMB

Shabby Chic Lampshade

~First things you will need before you start this project are a pair of scissors, felt, lampshade (new or old) and a small hot glue gun. Are you excited yet!!! I AM~

Once you find the lampshade you want to work with then you can start to make it shabby chic~I like to use old dingy lampshades because it feels nice to bring it back to life, however you can use a new one if you choose to. You will be applying felt on the lampshade so you want to make sure you have enough felt before you start.

I just used the 9×12 sheets from Hobby Lobby, or you can get them at your local craft store. They are usually really cheap, I paid $.29 per sheet and used about 10 sheets. Before you start cutting the felt plug your hot glue gun in.
Below is the lampshade I am using today.

I cut squares approximately 1 1/2″ x 2 1/2″. All I did was fold the sheet in half then cut at the crease. As you can see below I have 4 different sizes all done by continuously folding in half and cutting.I continued this process until my squares were around that size. Remember, the smaller you go the fuller the lamp will look.

When you are ready for gluing you will need to get one of your squares and fold it in half. (thanks paige for being my hand model) LOL

Next you will gently take your hot glue gun and squeeze the glue onto the crease you just created.

Once you have your glue on the crease, quickly fold your square in half again. This will make it a lot smaller so do not worry if your square has shrunk a lot!

You will directly place the felt onto the lampshade without letting go of the fold you just made. Your first piece will take the most time because you need to hold it down with your fingers until the glue is completely dry. (please be careful, glue can really burn you :)

Once your first piece is glued on, you can now start adding the other pieces of felt using the same technique as the first. The only difference now is that you will not have to hold the piece of felt down as long. Don’t be discouraged after you put your first one on! I promise after you put your 3rd or 4th piece on you will start to see the way it’s supposed to look~

GOOD LUCK~~ Please post pictures when you are done and I will do a follow up blog with all the ones that were sent to me~~~ I can’t wait to see your magnificent lampshade~

P.S. This would be a great Christmas gift~

Wanna see how I decorated my craft booth

I totally had my first craft show this past weekend! It was AMAZING! I have been wanting to do a craft show for years and I never took the plunge. WHY? Well, it’s scary to think of people walking past your booth and not coming in or coming in and NEVER buying anything. Good news though, people DIDN’T walk past my booth because they came in AND, I sold a lot of things! I just wanted to share the layout of my tent because everyone online wanted to see the outcome. Can’t wait till the next show~
This is the front of the tent. You can see it’s not that big but big isn’t always good :)
Keep Calm and Carry ON!  
Ashy made these awesome wooden trees for me to hang all of my signs on. They came out so great!
This is the other wooden tree and it is FULL of my awesome scarves. You can find them in my ETSY shop HERE!
You remember my tutorial on my “stained glass curtains”…Well, these are them! Click HERE to see how I made them! Here are some other glass crafts
Stained Glass Frame
Stained Heart Mobile
I found these wire structures in my studio so I figured I would put them to good use. I THINK they are made for tomato’s  but  we all know I am not a gardner {{lol}} All of my wooden signs are made from wood that is SUPER DUPER old. They are really pretty when you can see them away from the rest. I will be updating my ETSY shop this weekend so keep an eye out for some of these babies in here! If you want to get to my ETSY shop click HERE.
These are my vintage fabric notecards and boy were they a hit. Not as much as a hit as I would have liked but I just wanted to show you how you can hang things but putting twine up and using baby clothespins. What did you say? Where can you get baby clothes pins? Well in my ETSY shop!!!
This was the fabulous chalkboard section. This was a HIT! Everyone loves {{especially ME}} being able to write different messages on things without it being permanent.  Remember my Chalk Board paint tutorials? You can purchase any of my chalkboard wine glass in my ETSY shop HERE. Here are some other crafts I did with Chalkboard Paint:
Chalkboard cabinets 
Homemade Bulletin Board
Chalkboard Bakers Rack
Puzzle Canister
OH and my DOOR!

Do you see a pattern?

 

We hope you enjoyed our tent! Have fun with your booth and if you don’t have a booth you can use all of these ideas in your house!!!
Sending you loads and loads of bright colored ideas,
your one and only jaderbomb
