Jewelry takes people’s minds off your wrinkles – Sonja Henie

Hey everyone! I am just getting back from the most amazing trip ever and I wanted to share this tutorial with you on making Color Blocked Gold Bracelets . I will be sharing more about the my trip later this week so make sure to come back and check it out!

If you are like me then you can sometimes be cheap! Very cheap!

I personally call it being “smart”, right. I found a set of gold bracelets a while back at Old Navy and bought them. Check out what I was REALLY doing there when I found them.  I wasn’t sure exactly what I would do with them but I knew I would figure it out and it would be RAD. If you like gold check out this cute gold flag banner I made for a cake.

I finally decided I wanted to add a splash of color to them. Finger nail polish is the best thing to apply to metal because it stays on for a LONG time. Let’s get started. Color Blocked Gold Bracelets How beautiful are these bracelets. I knew they would be a hit on my vacation and now I am madly in love with them. I think I need about 10 more on my wrist.

You will need:
1. Nail Polish
2. Gold Bracelets or Gold Chain HOW TO PAINT METAL JADERBOMB I am using Covergirl outlast stay brilliant nail polish. I am in love with all of their colors and they fit perfectly with my smile!

15 gold diy's Step 1:  Lay out your gold bracelet on a clean surface and coat one side with nail polish. painting gold bracelts Move on to the next one and remember to coat one side at a time. It doesn’t take too long for the polish to dry. In 10 minutes you can flip it over and do the other side. I like to do about 2 good coats  of each color. My goal is to give it a matte finish.  how to paint You can see below how it will look if you only do one side of the bracelet. Depending on the links I would decide if I wanted to do both sides on some of them.  diy bracelets One tip I have when storing bracelets is to sling them over the top of a really cool jar. You can find these at garage sales or vintage stores. Plus it looks really pretty.  EASY KIDS CRAFTS

Happy 12 month’s of MARTHA! I am so glad you are here and I know you will love the tutorial I am sharing and the giveaway I am doing!  This month’s box of goodies made me smile from ear to ear.

 How simple, cute and elegant are these apothecary jars?! Seriously, these would look great in any room. I made them for my kitchen and I filled them with coffee, tea and pomegranate powder for my water.


 You will need:


You can purchase all of the above supplies by clicking on the links.


 Don’t you just love these great colors. Someday’s when I feel down I just go in my studio and look through my tubes of paint. They are filled with happiness I tell ya.  For this project I used Geranium and Pool.
(colors of paint)


 When you open your pack of silk screens they will look like the picture above, all connected on one sheet.


If you notice they have white lines separating each design. You should cut along the line to separate them.


 This is how they will look once you cut them.


 Find the image you want to use and gently peel the silk screen off of the paper. I like to start on a corner. Plus if it get’s crinkled it will not mess up the actual image. Once you remove the silk screen place it where you want on the glass.


Once you apply your silk screen to the glass add a bead of paint right above the image.




 Get your squeegee and pull the paint down over the image. I suggest going from the top to the bottom in one stroke. It will make the paint consistent and even. Repeat the step if you have to do it in two layers.


 As soon as you finish, peel the silk screen off of the glass. Very important that you wash it immediately.  If you let the paint dry on the silk screen it will not work properly again. Once you wash it lay it out on a towel to dry.


 Move on to your next jar.


It’s really that simple.

Quote of the day:
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.”-John Muir

Oh HAPPY day! It’s gloomy outside and we have not had sun for a few day’s. Most of the time this weather makes me feel just like it looks! However, since it’s Christmas time I couldn’t even imagine the sun beaming through my windows right now. It actually feel’s like what you would imagine “Christmas” would look like here in Louisiana. Well…minus the snow, cold weather and fire places burning. Good news is we are supposed to get a cold front tonight.
{{insert a loud YAYYYYY}}

The other day I got home and found a NICE brown box sitting at my front door. I got super excited and couldn’t wait to see what it was. When I finally got to it I was pleased to see it was from my friends at Martha Stewart.

As I started to open it I realized it was all great things to use for the Holiday’s and GREAT last minute items to pick up for your holiday decor.  I will post some now and some later today so make sure to come back. Let’s get started!

The first thing are these babies!


Martha Stewart Crafts™Wonderland Christmas Light Window Clings
Easily add a festive decoration to windows and mirrors with these Martha Stewart Crafts™
Wonderland Christmas Light clings. Glittered bulbs stick without adhesive and peel off for use year after year. Includes 12 pieces, each approx. 4in long.

(you can get these where Martha Stewart craft products are sold)


I absolutely love the way they look on our window. I put them above our kitchen sink so I can feel happy every time I look out of the window. What I love about them is they will not stick to your windows like stickers do,  which makes it super easy to take off. Since they are window clings you can store them in a bag for the next year and use them all over. You can even put them in your vehicle to add some Holiday spirit. At night when I light all of the candles on the window seal they look so pretty!

The next thing that was sent to me were these beautiful Martha Stewart Crafts Snowflake Hanging Rosette’s.
You can purchase them HERE.

*Makes 3 decorations: one 19.5-inch and two 13.5-inch
*Coordinates with other holiday party decorations
*Perfect for winter parties and holiday celebrations



The color palette for them are soft and delicate. I love the jewel in the middle of them.


I put them outside on one of our sheds. It added a little “Holiday-ness” to it and I love them!
They are so easy to make which is why you could go grab some and put them up in 10 minutes!

See ya in the next post! Don’t forget to make it a DIY kinda day!
