Happy New Year! This is officially my 1st post of 2016 and this will be my year to organize my life and hopefully everyone else’s, haha! Michaels has the perfect items to choose from to help your life stay organized and that is the hard part! This #MichaelsMakers challenge really put me in the perfect mood to get a few new items for my studio and I can’t wait to show you what I decided to get!

Inspired to organize your own space? Start the year off right! Michaels has tons of products and storage supplies that can be used to decorate and inspire creativity in any room of your house or office.


I especially love this time of the year. It is the perfect time for us to do a fresh cleansing of our spaces we spend a lot of time in plus it’s aways fun to get new things to help us organize our chaos! Remember last year when I showed you my WHOLE studio and how I stay organized?

organize your craft room

I was stoked when I found out about the new line of organizational products from Michaels! Cre8ted spaces has bright and whimsical products that will freshen up any space you are in! Did I mention that this line is now 50% off right now!!!! I literally started screaming inside when I saw this cute teal cart and I knew I just had to have it!

I just loved the idea of having a mobile cart of art supplies to bring back and forth from one room to another!

For starters why not clean out those cardboard boxes filled with tubes of paint and throw them in these cute green boxes. I can’t even express how much I love this color, it totally fits my personality.  easy organization tips Now I love having ton’s of containers for pens, pencils and paint brushes. I bought about 6 of these cute patterned ones and scattered them all over my studio.

Why not clean out your bathroom and place those items you use daily in cute containers or baskets so they actually look nice sitting out!

basket organization

Honestly I could go on for days because you can literally organize every single corner of your life with these containers. I did however run across this Christmas tray at Michaels for 65% off!! It has a sweater pattern on the top and I will keep this out all year long. I love using twine for all of my project pictures so I figured this would be the best way to display them.

I also bought these containers to store different brands of products in. I love staying this organized! STORE-PAINT-IN-A-CRAFT-SPACE

This cart holds all of the things I use daily and I love it. I think I might just have to get a cart for my house as well.  organize paint

happy crafting

Michaels just launched a new line of storage and organization product called Cre8ted Spaces available in stores now and it has tons of different colors, bins and office supplies – with more than 300 new items in 4 coordinating colors, you have to check it out!

I hope you enjoyed this post and until the next one, HUGS!!! XOXO, Jade

If you don’t know where to begin, you can always take a look at some of the fun storage projects on Michaels.com or the other 49 makers’ ideas on The Glue String for tips on designing, organizing and decorating their favorite places!


There are a few things in life that make my heart flutter.
Prednisone, a good kiss, seeing my son every afternoon and glitter. All shades of glitter.

This Saturday, November 15th Michaels will be hosting a super rad Holiday Pinterest Party! When you go in you will get a list of “Pinterest-Inspired holiday projects and an exclusive coupon to use when purchasing products needed for your project.

Michaels sent me a list of every single project they will be creating on Saturday and asked me if I wanted to create one using a little Jaderbomb love to it. HELLER! It’s on like donkey kong. BTW: Did you see my Dream Tree I did with Michaels!

Michaels created these super soft and delicate glittered jar candles and I decided to bring out the fun and whimsical side of glittered candles.


Obviously I can’t settle with just pink glitter and an eiffel tower…. SMH

Don’t get me wrong, I loved the pink candle that Michaels created (Michaels instructions here). I personally have a thing for black and white with POPS of color. Maybe it’s the fact that I simply can’t be satisfied long enough with color. Plus every color in the world looks better with back and white. Preferably stripes! I used fun colorful beads to wrap around my candle but you can use any beads that make your heart flutter.

Glittered Jar Candle Supplies
Glass Candles, Foam Brushes, Ribbon, Glitter, Mod Podge, Twine, Beads & Scissors  

P.S. Black and White striped ribbon is the BEST.  michaels holiday pinterest party

When I saw these alphabet beads for about 3 seconds I felt 10. I used to give these to my friends as “BFF” bracelets. I am now reminded that I need to buy 5 more packs of these. So stay on the look out, you might be getting BFF bracelets!  CHRISTMAS JEWELS

Create any word you want and use baker’s twine to connect the letters.

I used flexible jewelry wire to wrap wooden beads around the top of candle. This adds a little, ok a HUGE pop of color. If you squint your eyes they kinda look like NERDS. #JS  BEADED NECKLACE

Carefully wrap your beaded wire around the base of your candle or the top portion of candle. It’s pretty much that simple! Last, tie your beaded words the same way.

P.S. If you are wondering what “HEAUX” means, it’s sorta the cajun way we write things. Don’t ask, we have our own language in Louisiana! HEHE

Hope to see you at the store Saturday! If you can’t make it in person and want to shop Michaels online, you can use promo code MERRYSALE for 40% off any one regular price item, now through November 15.


This is my first year that I get to make a tree for Michaels and I will tell you I had so much fun! There are so many talented bloggers involved with the #MichaelsMakers #TagATree challenge this year and I feel so honored to be one of them! Make sure you stop by Michaels’ blog, The Glue String to see all of the Dream Tree reveals. To kick off the holiday season, make sure and check out of Michaels’ Make it Merry inspiration book or all kinds of holiday tips and projects. Stay tuned on the 14th I will share with you how I created my ornaments!


WAHOO! It’s finally time to reveal my MICHAELS DREAM TREE! I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I had creating this tree! If you know anything about me then you know I love black and white stripes. I mean, if I could wear stripes all day every day I would be happy… (minus being behind bars)… I wanted to take this tree to a whole new level with more DIY ornaments than I have ever done. Stay tuned I will be sharing how I made the ornaments later this week. I wanted to tie in my quirky personality with the stripes so I added some fun creamy pastel shades throughout the tree. The great thing about black and white is you can throw in any accent color and it will look fabulous!


I was super excited when Michaels sent me this 7ft Willow Christmas Tree! The tree was completely brown but I wanted to lighten it up a little so I flocked some of the branches and even a few ornaments. Of course I flocked the tree before I added my ornaments but once it was complete I added a little more flock. I really wanted a “white” christmas! I live in Louisiana so we know the chances of that happening are very slim!

I am excited to share with you the #TrickYourPumpkin sweepstakes that will be going on Oct. 4 through 31 for a chance to win a $250 Michaels gift card and Plaid products each Friday throughout the month of October. 

Post your pumpkin project on Instagram using hashtag #trickyourpumpkin, #sweepstakes and tag Michaels.

If you are having trouble figuring out all the different ways to keep this sucker up all year long then you and I are on the same page. It’s funny because when I started doing the rainbow pumpkin I really fell in love with it until…the matte black one was born.

…There is something sleek and sexy about an all black pumpkin, don’t you agree!

What You’ll Need (You can purchase all of the items I used in this post by clicking on the links below. These are affiliate links so ordering from them helps me buy more glitter and glue)

I love this glitter. It has a matte look to it and it goes perfect with the shiny spiders!

vintage glitter

The first thing you want to do is place the spider on your finger, add mod podge to the end then sprinkle glitter on top.

Once your spiders are dry, grab a pair of scissors and cut the ring section off.

How gorgeous are these spiders…

Start applying the spiders on the pumpkin by adding a little hot glue to the back of them, then placing on the pumpkin. That simple. This is all we are doing with the cream pumpkin.


For the matte black pumpkin you will start by spraying the pumpkin with Krylon chalkboard paint. Make sure to do this in a well ventilated space.


Take your black spiders and repeat all the steps from the cream pumpkin. Once all of the spiders are glued on spray your pumpkin again with the chalkboard paint.


Here is a quick tip: Remove loose strands of hot glue with a heat gun, or a blow dryer. It heats up the thin strands then they magically disappear.

DSC_0380 This month’s theme for Michaels Makers is Fall Home Decor. Fall is my favorite because the weather is changing, the leaves on the trees are changing, even food tastes better. Today I will show you how to dress up your table with a punch of Fall, surely this will make all of your guests excited! All of the materials I am using today come from Michaels. I hope you enjoy it!


DSC_0355 These pumpkins come in different colors so you don’t have to spend time painting them, my kinda pumpkin. They are on sale right now at Michaels so go grab a few. You can do so many different things with these pumpkins. The best part of these pumpkins is they will never rot! So you can bedazzle your hearts away and save them for next year.
DSC_0357 These Martha Stewart pumpkin sleeves are phenomenal. They are made from a stretchy mesh material that can cover a pumpkin in no time. The best part is you can take the sleeve off when you get tired of it, leaving you with a blank canvas! DSC_0358 I love the lace design on this pumpkin sleeve.
DSC_0359 To make our chalkboard pumpkin, tape off the top part of your pumpkin. I am using tape from Martha Stewarts line.  DSC_0364 Once you have it taped off you can spray paint the bottom portion of your pumpkin with chalk board spray. Make sure you do this in a well ventilated spot. DSC_0367 Add some E-6000 to the top of your pumpkin and place the knob on the top of it. This will make your pumpkin look a very classy. DSC_0370 On one of your plain pumpkins we will apply these lace removable stickers to them. It adds a pop of class to them.  DSC_0360 DSC_0361 I am placing these adhesive dots on top of each lace sticker. The great thing is you can purchase these in multiple colors. Did I mention this whole sheet is only $1.  DSC_0372 On your chalkboard pumpkin, grab your Sharpie and write whatever inspires you on the top portion. This is a great time to grab your favorite quote or poem. Don’t forget to grab some chalk for the bottom part.  DSC_0375 DSC_0379 DSC_0380 DSC_0381 DSC_0382

I am so thrilled to finally show you my Michael’s Arts ‘N Crafts Haul! I had so much fun filming this video minus all of the complications like…

♥ Filming for 30 minutes only to realize my camera DIED!
♥ Filming again for quite possibly longer than 30 minutes not realizing my memory card ran out 15 minutes into it.
♥ Sweating profusely due to 100 lights blasting on me.
♥ Having to “re-package” all of my items every time I started over.
♥ Having my son film and STAY behind the camera to let me know if it dies, memory card runs out or anything else! Finishing the WHOLE thing then realizing he didn’t “focus” in on me at all!

Needless to say I am thrilled to be a Michael’s Maker! All of the items I chose for this Arts ‘N Crafts Haul were purchased at Michael’s. I didn’t get to take any still shots due to the “MANY” complications but I grabbed some from the video! ENJOY
Michael's Arts ‘N Crafts Haul These ceramic jars have lids on them and a painted chalkboard label on the front. You can put clothespins, pens, rulers or trinkets in them.

I purchases every color, imagine that! chalkboard calender How cool is this adhesive chalkboard calendar! You can move this calendar around multiple times and it will continue to stick.

I love when labels are black because they seem more elegant so this is a win win!  Black Canvas Michaels arts n crafts haul I fell in love with this black canvas which you can get in the canvas section at Michaels. This is great as an inspiration board or a bulletin board to put all of your favorite pictures and memorabilia on.   felt tip markers Michaels arts n crafts haul You can never have enough colored pens! These are by Recollections and come with 20 different colors.  gel tip markers Michaels arts n crafts haul I have never been a fan of gel pens until I used gel pens, haha! These are also by Recollections and come with 20 different colors. I stay organized by using certain colors for different events, birthdays, blog deadlines, and my son’s practices and games. If you have never color coordinated your agenda book then now is the time.
paper clips Michaels arts n crafts haul I love this set of push pins, clothespins and binder clips. Michael’s has packs with multiple colors so you can match your room decor.  wrapping paper Michaels arts n crafts haul This wrapping paper is not only FABULOUS but can be used to line the inside of a locker, wrap books or to wrap a gift with!  paper trays Michaels arts n crafts haul Stay organized on your desk with these paper trays.

These are great for socks, bows, undies, craft supplies or things to keep out of your way.  monster pencil pouch Michaels arts n crafts haul Who wants a boring pencil bag when you can get this rad monster bag. It’s so cute! When you unzip it the teeth show! This is worth getting just incase you are having a bad day, it will surely make you laugh.

Let’s get started! Time to get crafty and create your very own back to school bag!

Michaels Create2Educate Sweepstakes

you will need Tulip Fabric Paint | Imagins Backpack or Drawstring Bag (got these from Michaels) | Gold Iron-ON Studs | Foam Pouncers | Heat Gun 

If you don’t have any of the products I used in this project you can click on the links above and order them all from one spot! Yes, they are affiliate links so thank for helping me buy tons and tons of glitter to put more smiles on your face!
painted bag supplies I got these two white canvas bags from Michaels and I truly love them! I love that you can personalize them to match your own personality!  white canvas bag What product goes the best with fabric? Tulip Fabric Paint. This product owns my entire crafting heart. I use it on so much and it’s the most durable product I have come across for painting on fabric.
black puff paint

rainbow fabric paint michaels The first thing I like to do is insert a piece of card stock or water color paper in the inside of the bag. This stops the paint from bleeding through the bag to the back side.  how to paint a bag

I prefer to have every color available on one big sheet before I start the project. Grab your foam pouncer and add enough paint to cover the bottom of the pouncer. If you have a big glob on it dab it on the side to get the excess off.
washi tape Start adding the dots onto the bag in random places. I had to add a few dabs to get a perfect circle. What helped me is once my pouncer touched the bag I sorta applied a little pressure to the pouncer and this helped push the paint out of it.  tulip fabric paint projects How pretty! how to paint polka dots On the drawstring bag I wanted to use one color and how could I not use this Aqua color! It’s to die for. To add a little spice to the bag I added black whimsical circles around the dots. Don’t worry about these being perfect because they are supposed to be fun!

Heated Studs

how to use a heat gun The instructions for the iron-on studs said to use an iron but I used my heat gun which I also purchased from Michaels. Place the gun a few inches away from the stud and while heating the stud I used a screw driver to hold it down to make sure the adhesive backing attached to the bag. I then opened the bag and applied heat to the stud from the back end. This is my favorite tool ever! Please do NOT touch the stud after you applied heat to it because it will indeed burn you. I have proof if you really want to see!

I am so pleased with the way both of the bags turned out! I hope you have fun creating your very own DIY back to school bag! Don’t forget to enter the sweepstakes!  diy painted bag michaels back to school

A few day’s ago I created some fabulous cupcake ornaments for the I Love to Create Blog. I knew they were cute as a button but I didn’t realize they would be such a big hit! I never make a ton of ornaments, I usually make enough for a photo. I knew these ornaments would make me smile during the holiday’s so I made lot’s of them! At least enough to fill up my cute gold tree.

If you want to see the FULL tutorial on how to make them check it out HERE!

This weekend I hosted a Pinterest party at the Lafayette Michaels store and let me tell you it was so much fun. I had so many happy faces come out to see me. Here are a few pictures from the event, before it got crazy busy!

This was one of the happiest employee’s I have ever met! Good job Michaels for snagging her, she’s a keeper!


I had my handy dandy Tulip spray paint to protect me. Look, there are my cupcake ornaments.  1461872_682780021756163_1230335570_n

Someone was happy to have a Tulip glitter tattoo. I hope you enjoy making these ornaments. See you in the next post!

Happy Friday Jaderbugs! Remember yesterday when I said I would share the rest of what I got in the mail from Martha Stewart? Well today is the day. I believe I saved the best things for last because everything in today’s post are items that can be used to put your goodies in. Let’s take a look. There are 3 different items for you to check out. Remember to check for these items and more wherever Martha Stewart products are sold.

Let’s get started!

*6 match box treat boxes
*Approx. 5-1/2″L x 8-1/2″W (each)

Create a thoughtful gift by filling these boxes with anything homemade and they are great for the Holiday’s. I had to make croissants the other day and I sent them in these cute boxes. Everyone loved them so much! Plus, it feels good to give something homemade in a precious box.


Wonderland Treat Bags And Baskets

*8 cellophane bags,8 ribbons, 8 tags, 8 adhesive strips, and 8 paper baskets.

(Click on the link to order or get them where Martha Stewart products are sold)

These  are ideal for giving home baked treats as gifts or at bake sales. I made sugar cookies last night them stuffed them into these bags! If you click on the picture you can see them better. I put crushed jolly ranchers in the middle then baked them. They end up looking like “stained glass.” So pretty. If you want me to put the recipe up tomorrow just let me know in the comments below.

Dear Universe, thank you for sending me a huge box of Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint by Plaid. When I say there is a party going on in my head, believe that! I am always amazed by Martha Stewart’s products. They are consistent and dependable.  Martha Stewart has this new line of glass paint out and I was so honored to review the glass paint and glass accessories. I will tell you the one thing I could not wait to get my hands on the adhesive silk screens. Yep, you heard that right. Adhesive.

In today’s tutorial I will show you how to turn a boring plate into a phenomenal work of art, and all by using the  Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint.

These are all of the new glass tools. They work great with her Crafts Glass Paint.

Check out these whimsical colors! The groups matter in this case. Some of the frost colors look very pigmented but in actuality they are very translucent. I don’t mind that because when I think of glass paint I think of something that light can actually pass through.

These are some of the new stencils for the glass line. The great thing about all of the stencils are the adhesive backs. You can adhere them to anything, which in return will give you a perfect stencil.  No bleeding with these!

You can find the Martha Stewart Glass Paint from Plaid at all at Michaels stores.

 I made this “sample” so I could see what color I want to use. One reason I recommend doing this is because some of the colors change once they get on  the glass. I used some plastic knives, painted each color on the tip, wrote the name on the other end, drilled a hole in them and voila! I can always go back to this for reference. I know, it’s extra work but totally worth it in the end. (I actually think this is so pretty).

Cotton Balls
Paper towels
*Bright and Happy Thoughts
[this is the most important ingredient]

First thing you will do is clean your surface with soap and water. When it’s dry take off any residue by rubbing alcohol over the entire surface.

When you open your pack of silk screen stencils you will notice they are on one sheet. Get your scissors and cut along all of the lines. Your silk screens are separated and ready to use.

When your surface is ready you will gently peel the stencil off of the paper. Remember you have natural oils on your hands so try not to touch the adhesive backing too much. Place your stencil where you want it and lightly press the stencil down with your hand. I used a paper towel to rub it down onto my plate. Double check for any bubbles or lumps before you start applying the paint.

You do not need a ton of paint to do a silk screen. Put a line of paint at the top of your stencil and get your squeegee ready. If you wanted you could also use the dauber instead of the squeegee. I tried both of them and was pleased with how smooth the paint looked when I used the squeegee.

P.S. If you mess up and you need  to start over, put some alcohol on a cotton swab and rub your paint off of the surface. This can only happen when your paint is wet. If you notice a mistake when it’s dry, use your scraper for that. That baby works wonders.

Slowly start pulling the paint down over the stencil. Try to let the squeegee do all of the work, be gentle and you will get consistent results.

Make sure to take your stencil off while the paint is wet.  It’s very important after you put a coat of paint to take the stencil off immediately and put it in water. If you let it dry on your surface then pull it off, it will more than likely pull up some of your paint.  You do not want the paint to dry on the silk screen.
After you clean your silk screen let it dry and you can reuse it again. How awesome is this!

[Are you getting excited?}

This is what it will look like when it’s done. Make sure to let the paint dry before you do your next layer of paint. It’s not mandatory but you will see better results if you do this.

One thing that I am loving is the tip on the bottles. The tapered tip makes it really easy to free hand pretty much anything. I think it adds that whimsical pop to your project.
Mexican Folk Art is screaming all over this already, don’t you agree. I also made two tea light holders to go along with the plate. I used the exact same process as the plate.

Are you inspired yet?

When you are done it’s important you let your project air dry for about an hour. You can cure the paint by sticking in an oven for 30 minutes at 350°.  Get the complete glass baking instructions here.  FYI: The fine glitter paint can NOT go in the oven.

 I hope you enjoyed this tutorial because I had a blast making this craft. I already have ton’s of ideas going through my head so stay tuned for more crafts with Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint.

Paper Butterflies

 Happy Friday Jaderbugs! I could not wait to share this craft with you because everyone LOVES butterflies. I know for me when I see one I feel in my heart that it’s a loved one that has passed. Maybe I am “cliche” but I just feel that way! I think the weather in Louisiana is supposed to be GREAT this weekend so I can’t wait to take it all in! Life is what you make of it! Just always remember. When you think you have it bad step back and look around you. God gave you what you need. When he is ready for change you will know! Happy crafting!

Get a Monarch Butterfly Punch. You can order one or get it at Michaels Arts and Crafts. 

Grab some scrap book paper and get to punching! 

Place your paper in the slit and give it one good punch. I have to tell you the awesome things about these punches is you barely have to press it. It really just works so easily! 

How pretty is this! I want to cover a piece of wood with TONS of these butterflies! You know you can even make these and put them at your loved ones grave site! Just saying they would prolly like it! 

I am using floral wire which you can get at your local craft store. 

and my handy dandy glue gun! This glue gun has a dual temperature on it so it’s really cool to work with! A must have for your “wish” list!

They come out FLAWLESS!

After you punch your butterfly out put a line of hot glue along the back of it then place a piece of your floral wire in the glue. 

These suckers are so fun! I don’t usually like “thing’s” like this because I am not a scrap-booker but I really like this and I would totally put them in another bouquet of flowers.

You can also put these on top of Christmas presents! That would be fun!
