Good Morning Jaderbugs!
Is it really Friday? Wait… It is Friday!

I posted a picture of this craft on Instagram last week and everyone was excited when they saw the GOLD glitter. I get excited when I see GOLD glitter.

 I also get excited when I see gold glitter with a hint of light near it, don’t you? Today’s craft is super fun and will add that pop of holiday decor to any space. This is great for any occasion actually. What I love the most is you can spell out whatever you want! 

You can MONOGRAM it!
Let’s get started.

Seriously, how cute is this? I wish I could show you how pretty they look when they are lit.

INGREDIENTS:

*Tall glass candles
( I got these from Walgreens. 2 for $5)
*Mod Podge
*Wooden Letter
(I got these at Hobby Lobby. They were around 50 cents)
*Gold glitter
*Brush
*Baker’s Twine 

The first thing you will do is coat the letter with Mod Podge. I actually put one layer of glitter and now I am applying the second layer.

After you coat your letter with Mod Podge, sprinkle with your glitter.
*sprinkle
*sprinkle

Cut a piece of baker’s twine and gently wrap it around the letter (or number).

Once you wrap your twine around your letter then you will wrap your twine around the candle. BTW, I bought my candles without any sticker or wrap on it. It came clean and crisp just like the picture.

VOILA! Peace on my window seal, at night, while I eat Nutella on toast, and drink a Dr. Pepper, while watching RHWOA, then taking my chewy vitamins because I can’t swallow pills…. YEP.

P to the E to the ACE from my crib to yours.

Don’t forget to GLITTERBOMB something!

I know we all love making our favorite spaces warm and cozy! Sometimes we look for the most expensive things to make this happen. Today I am going to show you how a simple “vintage” window frame can do the job for you.

If you don’t have any window frames like this check out antique stores of just ask some of your friends. You would be surprised how many people have the suckers stashed away!

INGREDIENTS:

You can use any color hooks that you want, try to use the same color as the ceiling. If you don’t want to use twine you can use fishing string or ANY string you think will work! Chains work great too!

Grab someone you know and make them pose with it first! HAHA

Screw two screws at the top of the window frame on each end then screw the next two into the ceiling. If you measure the distance from the screws on the window frame this should help you determine the width on the ceiling!

That’s it people! It’s that simple! It really dresses up a spot quickly!

Sending you happy thoughts today!

Let’s FACE it. We all have things we hold on to that instantly make us feel better or instantly put us in a “happy” place! It could be a book, a pillow, a shirt, a pen, a picture, a memory or bracelets. Personally I hold on to anything someone gives me. I still have rocks lil one picked for me from 8 years ago! I know. It’s a ROCK. But it INSTANTLY takes me back to that exact moment in time.

I love it when I can GO BACK to a moment in my life and it feels like it JUST happened. I can sometimes “SMELL” what that moment smelled like. I think that is crazy how our brains can do that. I wanted to do this post today because I wanted to tell you that if you are happy, sad, depressed, anxious… whatever you are, you can totally do things to make life AWESOME! I personally try not to focus on things or people that I can’t control. That has always been a big struggle for me (there you go, I admit it)….. BUT it’s been years since it has made it’s way into my life.

Yes. I know I can’t control ANYONE except myself. I am cool with that. At the end of the day people will have to deal with the things they have done and the consequences. How great is it to LET GO of CONTROL! It’s amazing!

I am posting a picture of this bracelet I got in 2006 from my good friend JAMIE! At the time I really didn’t think much of it because I didn’t understand it! I just remember thinking it “looked” cool. So, I put it on and went about my day. Almost 7 years later I am still wearing it. I KID YOU NOT! I have not taken it off SINCE THAT DAY! This bracelet has gotten me through so much and has been around through so much! It is crazy because I feel like it is apart of me and I would feel NAKED without it!

I know your thinking, come on. You had to take it off at some point in 7 years and your right! I took it off ONCE because it was full of GAS and I had to wash it. THAT’S IT!

Wanna see a picture of it? I warn you, it might now be the prettiest bracelet anymore but who wants a perfect bracelet. Aren’t we all a little used up in the end. Face it, it’s all the bumps and scrapes that makes us who we are!  Here it is. {{ Oh and I have been wearing my CHAZZY bracelet for about 2 years now}} If you wanna read about this bracelet you can click HERE and HERE and HERE. HAHAHAHA

Here is what each color means

BLACK stands for our sin.  
“For all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard” (Romans 3:23 NLT)

RED is for the blood Jesus shed on the cross.
“God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 NLT)

BLUE is for faith.
“We become right with God, not by doing what the law commands, but by faith in Jesus Christ”
(Galatians 2:16 NLT) 

WHITE tells us we are now clean and forgiven. 
“Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow” (Pslam 51:7 NLT) 

GREEN reminds us of growth in God’s love.
“Grow in the special favor and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18 NLT) 

YELLOW stand for the promise of eternal life.
[Jesus said,] ” I am going to prepare a place for you. …I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am” (John 14:2-3 NLT) 

So there you have it. Every time I FACE what’s going on in my life I always look at my wrist. It always reminds me there is more to my life! Everything happens for a reason. Instead of focusing on the problem look at the POSITIVE.

If you wanna buy one you can buy it HERE. If you order one it comes with a little card to keep on you all the time! I still have my card too!

 I really hope you have a GREAT day! Know that I LOVE you and BELIEVE in you! If you have a dried up flower that makes you SMILE put it by your bed so you see it when you wake up and go to bed. That goes for ANYTHING you have that puts you in that HAPPY place. Remember, the UNIVERSE. ATTRACT JADERBUGS, ATTRACT!!

See you in the next post!
