Howdy Hoo Jaderbugs! Can you believe it’s already almost Thursday? I started thinking earlier about this…what if we worked on Saturday and Sunday and our “weekend” was the entire week! That would be so great, right! The only bad thing is a blogger’s life is spent blogging. So I really wouldn’t have any time off.

Quote of the day: 
Whoever knocks persistently, ends by entering.”

The picture at the top is fun right. I think is super fannn-cyyyyyy (say that with your lip cocked to the side and a victorian voice). I don’t have a  CAT but if I did it would look like this. Top hat and all!

Did I share the news with you that I am now a contributing editor for The Graphics Fairy-Crafts. How coolio is that! She has the best graphics ever! I really had fun getting creative with this one and if you want to see the FULL TUTORIAL on how I made this from beginning to end then head on over to Karen’s blog to see it!



Did you get to see my fun Chevron Halloween printable? It’s FREE! They come in three different looks so get them now and start crafting with them. Something that would be really cute is to print it out, put a round picture in the black circle and frame it. Perfect for the Fall season, and Halloween.

A “dubleeeooo” for you.

Even though it’s the 5th of the month, you still have plenty of time to start this fun photo game I started. Don’t worry, if you start on the 19th it doesn’t mean you have to post all the days prior. Just start, be happy, have fun and share with your friends. It’s a fun way to stop and click. Kinda centers you actually.

I hope everyone sleeps well and I will see ya in the next post

So it’s Simmer down Sunday and it’s time to break out the instagram pictures of the week! This week has been {cray-cray}.
The one good thing that came out yesterday on the blog was my new  photo game:

I SPY with my CAMERA eye

Sign up with Instagram. Take a picture everyday. Share on facebook and twitter.

It’s really that simple. The cool thing is you can link up your facebook and twitter through your instagram account. It’s like 3 in 1.

The most important thing is tag each with this:


That’s it Jaderbugs! Click HERE to read more about my photo game!

See you in the next post!


With all of the excitement and  preparation for Blog Her 12 I forgot to post this baby! I am telling you my mind is going bonkers lately! We have this canister in our bathroom that I keep bath salts in. I am ALWAYS changing the scent of the salts so I wanted to put something on the canister that displayed what was in it. I didn’t want anything PERMANENT so after a little bit of thinking I though this would be cool.

Do you realize how much you can do with these labels! They are perfect for canisters in your kitchen, notebooks or gifts! How cute would it be if you would make these labels and put them on your christmas gifts you give out. You can write the name of person it is for! If you do something like that but your scared it would get wiped off, spray it with hairspray after. It will seal the chalk!

Let’s get started!


I got my address labels from Office Depot .  They are fun and bright! Check out what else I made using these labels here!

First thing you want to do is start painting your labels. I just painted the entire sheet. It is worth it in the end! After they dry, just peel the off and stick them where you want them! Yep, Jaderbugs… It’s that easy!!!

This is what my face looks like before it sees NEW YORK! I know, it doesn’t look that excited but it IS!

Guess who I will be seeing while I am there…..I will give you a few names so you can feel as excited as I am!!!!

1. Martha Stewart
2.  Katie Couric
3. Margaret Cho

I know, I am just as excited as YOU! I will be doing LIVE tweeting using hash tag #blogher12
Can’t wait to see my Graphic Fairy!

See ya in the city that doesn’t sleep [living my dreams everyday],
