ST_12_months_of_Martha_Logo-1  GLITTERED SPIDERS

Howdy Hoo Jaderbugs! It’s Monday and I have a ton of glittery happiness for you. Well not technically a “ton” but you understand. It’s all about “Halloween Decoration Ideas” today on the blog. I don’t know if I ever told you just how much I love Halloween and fake spiders. Preferably black ones made of paper.

LOVE.

The one thing that is changing as I am getting older is my Halloween color theme! I do still love the original orange and black but…COLOR makes me happy and jittery inside.  I guess I am sorta like ROY G. BIV’S wife.

I mean if she existed (wink wink).

I am so in love with GLITTER. I am not speaking of a “normal” relationship with glitter. You will never find me without glitter. It’s either in my purse or in my hair. <—haha!

Halloween Decoration Ideas Martha Stewart Glitter

The first thing you will do is coat the bottom of your spider with Mod Podge. Quickly sprinkle the spider with glitter before the Mod Podge dries.

I used the tinsel glitter because in the end it almost looks hairy. I think the tinsel glitter is a great choice to add texture to our spiders. I usually use this glitter around the Christmas holiday’s but I figured I would bust it out a little early.

 Orange Glitter

When you buy your paper spiders they come with little round double sided stickers. You will place them on the underneath and stick them on a wall. I absolutely love how they look full of color. PURE HAPPINESS.

Quote of the day:
God, grant me he power to get out of the shower – Monica Sheehan

Happy Happy Thursday! I could of sworn I just said in a post I can’t wait till Friday. Who would’a thunk it would get here so fast? Surely not me.  I think you know by now I love glitter. I swear, I have inhaled so much in my lifetime I believe it’s running through my veins. How cool would that be if everyone had a different color of glitter inside of them!

I bought this tape dispenser at Target the other day because I truly needed one. I think that is the ONE thing I never bought in my entire life. Can you believe that? Of course it was kinda boring so I figured what better way to “dress” it up!

Have you seen my Mexican Folk art plates? Click HERE to check them out!

INGREDIENTS: 

Tape Dispenser
Martha Stewart glittering glue
Martha Stewart glitter
Martha Stewart craft brushes
Martha Stewart glittering tray
Mod Podge
*happy thoughts which will create happy designs
(at least that is what jaderbomb thinks) 

 What I did first was apply Mod Podge in certain sections with my craft brush then sprinkle glitter on top. I did this step to get my “background” glitter down. The background is the biggest sections on your tape dispenser. Let it dry. Once it is dry I used my glittering glue to draw my designs. The great thing about this glue is the tip. It is tapered so you can really “draw” things accurately with it. I like to do one color of glitter at a time, let it dry then move onto the next design. I did the pink first, then the purple and last my designs incase you were wondering. That’s it Jaderbugs!  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I can’t WAIT to see you in the next post!

p.s. I have some fun FALL things coming up so make sure and check back in with #teamjaderbomb

Yes. Today I will be showing you exactly how my brain thinks! It really funny because every single thing I look at  I think to myself, “I wonder how I could spice this up“. Is that normal? Does anyone else out there do this. Let me clarify it’s not every 10th object I do this to. It’s EVERY single thing my eyes land on Jaderbugs. {{For example I am thinking right now how to decorate my laptop}}. SEE.

I hope everyone out there had a great day SUN-day. A friend of mine sent me a HUGE box of “blue” bottles because she knows I collect them. They are SOOO PRETTY! I can’t wait to do fun crafts with them. They were SKYY Vodka bottles. I said “WOW, that was prolly lot’s of “FUN” nights”.

I told you it was ALOT

Let’s get started on the craft we are working on today!

INGREDIENTS

You can get these magnet sheets at Wal-Mart in the craft section. They are maybe 2 bucks! Of course I used Martha Stewart scissors and glitter. It is the BEST!

Start cutting out triangles. You can cut one and make a template if you want. I just eyeballed it because I wanted them to be different sizes!

SEE! Triangles!

After you cut out all of your triangles, peel the paper off of the sticky side and sprinkle glitter all over it!

Who woulda ever “thunk” to decorate a lil ole coffee pot!

Sorry if my “stainless” steel looks a little discolored, this sucker is worked to the BONE!

I think this is the cutest thing ever! Not sure many MEN will love this (haha) good luck ladies!!!!
I hope you enjoyed this craft and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another fun craft! I will give you a hint {{gold}}!!!

Close your eyes and pretend we are sitting on a porch drinking glittered coffee,

Good day my little jaderbugs~!!!!
It is Sunday and I am super duper excited!!! I have had a great week and I have alot of crafts coming up that you will LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! Fa Reel!!!
Can you believe WOMAN’S DAY magazine LIKED this craft on Pinterest!!! Check it our here!
This craft is SUPER fun and SURE to catch anyone’s eye!
For the warp, cut 1-inch-wide loops from the bodies of one or two tees removing the hem and stopping at the sleeves.
You’ll need a total of 11 loops (to start off with). For the weft, cut at least 50 loops from the remaining shirts. Save the unused sleeves for the basket project.
-Stretch one warp loop over the hula hoop, as shown above in the second picture. Add and secure a second loop, perpendicular to the first (above, third picture).  Repeat, filling in the spaces, until all 11 loops are in place (above, fourth picture)
-Push together two warp loops at the top of the hula hoop. This creates an odd number (10) of warp spokes in your wheel, which allows the over-under pattern of the weft to alternate with each new row.
-Now that you have 10 loops grab an extra t-shirt loop wrap it around the double spoke and loop it back through itself. Begin weaving the t-shirt loop over and under the warp spokes, forming a tight spiral.
 Treat both parts of each warp spoke as a single unit, weaving over or under the two together. As you work, push the weft material (t-shirt) loop toward the center of the hoop and keep it just snug. If you pull the weft tight, the rug will develop lumps or bends. When you reach the end of the piece of weft, add a new loop by threading it through the end of the first and back through itself.
Keep repeating this process till you are happy with the size.
It might take a little practice until you get comfortable with it.
Remember, in order to get this “cone” shape you will need to make it tight. So when you are weaving over and under your original 10 loops make sure it’s snug as a bug.
It’s really more important that you make it snug when you first start till about halfway. When you are about halfway through it start making it looser and looser. This will form our SHAPE.
When you are done you will ut the warp spokes off the hoop one at a time and then tie them into a know. This will prevent out cover from unraveling. GOOD LUCK!!!

Happy FRIDAY Jaderbugs! Such a long week! But I wouldn’t change a second of every second. So you know I am always looking for ways to save money! I will go to the end of the earth and find the cheapest way. Which is what I did today (except I didn’t go to the ends of the earth today)… I just went in my craft closet!!! Your gonna flip when you see this craft, ONLY because these suckers are so expensive in the stores!

I always have an excuse for buying things that SMELL good. For about 3 years now me and seester would always send pictures back and forth of the “new” glade sprays. One of us was always SURE the “OTHER” didn’t know about it yet. The “other” one had already bought it. ((womp womp wompppp))

Things have somewhat changed for me in the last  6 months. For some strange reason I am worried about breathing in all of the chemicals in the sprays. Right? It’s like hey, we know you don’t do drugs but why don’t you spray this spray in your house about… um 50 times in one day because you can’t help yourself and we know you are COMPULSIVE and we promise you will become SO high from the “chemicals” you won’t know what’s REALLY going on. OK. So it worked.

Then I thought… why don’t I just start buying REAL flowers and have a natural smell OR use essential oils (natural)…. I mean let me just say this.  I realize I will sometimes buy things that are not OH SO GOOD for me to inhale (like my addiction to Bath and Body Works, Statin and Co. candles) but I at least TRY my hardest now.

Wouldn’t it be so nice if this was my backyard!
We could just walk outside and pick whatever flowers we wanted and “VOILA”…..OH Natureeeellllllll is in the HOUSEEE

Check out more of these fabulous flowers here.

I thought is was smart to make my own Reed Diffuser. Whatcha think! Let’s get started!

You will need some bamboo skewers, a small glass vase, water and whatever oil you want.

Pour some water in your glass vase, you want to fill it about 3/4 full. Add ass many drop of your oil as you want. I like to put ALOT!! {{{go figure}}}

Put your bamboo skewers in your vase and there ya have it! Your very own REED DIFFUSER! How simple was that!
I added a strip of fabric to BRIGHTEN up my diffuser. It smells so good people! Dont’ forget to turn your skewers upside down so the “oil filled side” sticks up. Just flip flop the skewers when you place your eyes on it!

I hope you have fun making YOUR OWN scents and dont’ forget to “SMELL THE FLOWERS”

Burst of BUTTERFLIES TUTORIAL

Howdy roo Jaderbugs! It’s Saturday and I have so much stuff to do my brain is like
“oh my lawdddddd who do you think I am”…
and I am like…
“hellooo your my brain your supposed to work overtime”…..
and then out of anger my brain is like….
” well how bout this.. “I’m off for the night, good luck finding a new brain”
There you have it. It’s going to be that kind of day!

But lemme tell you about this tutorial. So you know I love “MARTHA STEWART” (((really Jaderbomb,we know))). All of her punches are fabulous. I swear they punch out PERFECTLY and you would think they would go bad after um, 500 punches but NO! I think it actually get’s better! It’s springtime and I thought it was the right time to do a butterfly craft! This would look great in a little girl’s room. There is something whimsical and magical about a butterfly. I always seem to “relate” to them.
{{real or fake}}

Let’s get started.

Monarch Butterfly Large Double Punch
Scissor All Purpose

Do you see how perfect!!

Once you get them all punched out you need to bend them all in half. This will make them look like they are flying!

There you have it! You very own BURST of BUTTERFLIES!!!! The great thing about this project is that you can make all of the butterflies one certain color or you can use your favorite two colors. It’s all up to you! You can use glitter paper, paper with designs on them, or construction paper! This makes it very affordable.

 If you really want you can punch out of loose leaf paper and color them or use markers to add details! See, there are SO MANY things you can do with these magical babies!

Sending you butterflies from all over the world,

Hey y’all!! Happy GOOD FRIDAY!!!
I am not quite sure how I am actually typing right now because I ate SO much crawfish today my fingers are FULL….I could just feel my stomach expanding as I slowly swallowed each and every yummy crawfish!

It’s almost Easter time and you know my motto “it’s never too late to get it done”… If you want to spice up some plastic eggs for your Easter table then get this craft done ASAP! Just don’t accidentally EAT one!!! ((haha))

You want to start by getting some PERFECT PLASTIC  eggs. I think these babies are around 2 dollors a bag!

I used four main ingredients for this project.
1.Mod Podge  (I get this from Michael’s Arts and Crafts) I brush the Mod Podge on the egg then sprinkle glitter so it dries on there!
2. Martha Stewart Glitter  (Just incase you have NEVER used this glitter now is the time! You will fall in love)
3.  Martha Stewart glitter glue set
4.  Martha Stewart brushes

These nuggets are amazing!

 I tell ya, these look so good I just want to take a bite out of one!

I hope everyone is STILL enjoying this wonderful FRIDAY night! Enjoy your “EASTER” weekend and come back tomorrow for MORE EASTER fun!

Giving you a BIG hug through the computer,

DIY: Garden GNOMES

Happy SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!!!   I think my mouth is still OPEN from the halftime show. I can’t even get over the fact that MADONNA is still the hottest performer alive! There is nothing like her. Maybe that’s because I grew up with her and she was the most daring person I knew as a child. She has a new album coming out and if you click HERE you can pre-order it!!! I just did!!!

I wanted to squeeze in a fun little craft before my hectic week started. I LOVE gnomes. Maybe it’s that little “red” pointy hat that make me smile. I wanted to make some little plant stakes for some of my lonely plants. We had a really cold winter and my plants are coming alive again. Figured I could make some “friends” for them! 


It all came back when I got this book. I had a credit at a book store for sending in some old books and one day I went in the store and found it. I had this book when I was little and didn’t think I would ever see it again. When I was a little girl I used to watch “The world of David the Gnome”.  Do you remember it? It’s BASED off of this book!!!I will post a clip at the bottom of this post!!!!

The book is called “Gnomes” by Huygen and illustrated by Dutch artist Rien Poortvliet. You can order a copy HERE  if you are interested! I will share some fun facts that are in the book and maybe you will fall in love with garden gnomes like I have!

* The adult male weighs 300 grams and the female weights 250grams * You would typically only come in contact with the male because the females stay home *ONLY the males wears a peaked red cap *They are 7 times as strong as a man *When it’s really cold the male keeps his hands warm by placing them under his beard *They speak their own language, only animals can understand them.* Goodnight is “slitzweitz” and Thank You is ” te diews”.  

Let’s get started!!!

Grab some air dry clay. You can get this at walmart or any craft store. I order my stash from from the Crayola website!

Grab some  wooden skewers.

Of course you will need red paint and if you are a glitter fanatic like me you will need red glitter! Grab a small detailing brush also. If you follow me then you KNOW my commitment to anything “Martha Stewart”.  I absolutely swear by everything and it is by FAR the best quality of products I have ever worked with.

I used Habanero for my paint. You can get it at Michaels Art’s and Crafts or just order it here. I used red corundum for my glitter and you can get it here.

Start by shaping your air dry clay into the shapes you want. I did two separate pieces for each one then put them together after. Make sure you stick them onto the skewers before they dry. You want them to dry around the wood.

Put some paint on the hat then sprinkle glitter on top!

Don’t forget when you paint your mushroom to leave some little white circles. It will be cute with a couple of these on top.

This is what your mushroom should look like. BEWARE, if you sprinkle glitter while the clay is WET it will stick and you will NOT be able to get it off! ( haha, go figure I learned this the hard way)… But don’t worry, if this happens it will only give your mushroom
“character”.

Tadahhhhh!!! Here are my cute little creations. I just love them and I can’t wait to make a ton of them to put in ALL of my plants. I think I will make them ALL different! I hope you enjoyed this craft and create whatever makes you happy. This clay is super fun and very easy to work with.

Oh, before I forget…here is the video of the cartoon I used to watch.

 

Sending you lot’s of gnome love,

Wowzers!!! I can’t believe it is already THURSDAY!!! RIGHT! I have been having so much fun making all of these crafts for you {{and for me}}!  The other morning while I was making my coffee I ran out of creamer. {wahhhhh}.  So the typical routine is to throw the empty bottle away, right! That is exactly what I would have normally done {UNTIL} my lightbulb went off! I thought “how cool would it be to use these instead of throwing them away..
And here you have it! JUST FOR YOU my little jaderbugs.
I hope you enjoy!!!
Ingredients:
 The pieces do NOT have to be a certain size.  Use the size you like.
  Are you having fun yet? OH and I am using “sparkle” Mod Podge!!!! When it dries it is full of GLITTER!!!
  Don’t worry about being perfect! It’s about having fun!!!
 This is what it will look like still damp!
 OMGJB {{ohmygodjaderbomb}} HOW FLIPPING FULL OF CUTENESS  ARE THESE LITTLE SUCKERS.
Wishing my coffee pot could bring me another cup of coffee,
