Quote of the day: 
“Bigger than life is not difficult for me.  I AM bigger than life.”-Rita Moreno

Well that quote fit me quite perfectly I tell ya! If you ever wonder where I get my quotes from or how I choose them I will tell ya. I have always kept a calendar on my desk where you can tear a page off every day and each day has something new on it. I get them from Barnes and Noble. They usually have a HUGE table to choose from and they range from puzzles, cat’s, dogs, inspirational, sports, funny and anything else you can think of.

Last year Ashy bought me a really great inspirational one.  However this year, I got a really funny one. It’s sorta inspirational but it’s about inspirational WOMEN. I will post a link below to show you the calendar I got because it’s still early in the year and you need this one. Super funny!

Today’s craft is very inspirational. Why you ask? Well because when you water color it relaxes you in a way that you won’t understand unless you do it. I should say enjoying your time doing it will relax you, not if you hurry. It’s magical when you mix two colors together and they blend so easily. For me crafting isn’t just a job, it truly grounds me and gives me a place on this earth.

INGREDIENTS:

*Water Color Paint
*Brushes
*Fabric

If you click on the ingredient links you can purchase these items all in one place.

The first thing you will do is get strips of fabric ( use a light color so the water color’s show) and start painting whatever you like on it. I wanted to do some geometric shapes and patterns on mine. I will suggest one thing. When it comes to water color the cheaper ones you buy will not have a lot of color pigment in them. I suggest buying the more expensive one because it will be worth it. Don’t worry even the expensive ones are not that expensive.
FYI: you could also buy the ones with 7 colors and mix your own shades!

Once you paint on your fabric let them dry over night. When dry cut out triangles. I didn’t measure mine because I wanted them to be different sizes.

Once you are done grab your glue gun and some string or twine. Add a little glue to the top of the flag (the back side of your flag) and just place your twine on top of the glue. That’s it!

I just love the way they came out. I figured I would start early with my Valentines decor and I think this is beautiful.

 

I hope you enjoyed this post and you can look forward to new VALENTINE’S day crafts!

Huge hugs, see ya in the next post!

After searching high and low through my attic looking for a VALENTINES day wreath I finally came to the conclusion that:

a) I never had one

b) I just can’t find it, or 

c) I threw it away

I really don’t feel like going to the store to buy any because, 

a) I am too lazy today

b) I have enough things around my house to make one AND

c) I like homemade things much much more than store bough.

I know, even though you buy it in the store “someoneeeee” made it but it’s way different when you make it with your own two hands!!! I started thinking of different things to make it with and then I opened up my HUGE closet full of FABRIC! It all came to me then!

Strips of fabric tied to a wire wreath. I feel like it will be “homemade” enough and super cute! Not sure if you would consider it shabby chic valentiney or country chic! Let’s just say it’s “VALENTABBYCHIC“…. {{teehehe}}

I hope everyone is had a great weekend, don’t forget it’s almost SUPER BOWL time. Are you throwing a party? We are having a HUGE party and I can’t wait to show you all of my decorations! Ya know, I don’t even really like football (slap in the mouth right about nowwww). Can you believe that? I just like everything else that comes along with it!

Come on, let’s get to crafting!!!

Fabric Wreath Inspiration Board

 Grab some fabric that reminds you of  ”valentine’s day”. You can use reds, pinks, whites and black too!!!

I got this metal round skeleton wreath at Michaels Arts and Crafts. It was in some crazy section but maybe someone just misplaced it and I came to save it!

Get your Martha Stewart scissors! These suckers seriously, CUT EVERYTHING. I am sure I shouldn’t be cutting all of the things I cut with them but hey….you live once :) Plus they are from her. I want to use them 24-7

Cut your fabric into strips like this!!! I didn’t measure the strips I just cut! Some are thick and some are thin!!!

Start wrapping your strips around the wire. OVER AND OVER!!!! Until it’s fullllll!!!


I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE WAY IT CAME OUT! Isn’t it so “valentabbychic“!!!! I hope you have fun making this craft and have fun cutting all of those strips!!!!! {{boy lemme tell you it get’s boringggg}}!  

Sending you RED, WHITE and PINK hugs,

Paint Chip Canvas TUTORIAL

Hey Jaderbugs!!! I can’t believe I forgot to click “publish” yesterday after I wrote this!

I wanted to make you something that is FUN and EXCITING for Valentine’s day. I am always drawn into paint samples at any store I go into. I can think of a MILLION things to do with them and I never seem to have enough time! Sometimes I find paint samples that I absolutely can’t choose from, because I love the entire thing. That is why I came up with this fun craft! Why not make your own LIFE SIZE paint samples. You know, the kind where you can “pick” your own colors and “pick” your own names! I had so much fun making this and it would be a great gift to anyone! It is a great and cheap way to add lot’s of decor to a space and you can have tons of them for different holidays!

Some of the things I used to make this craft are:

1.  Martha Stewart Crafts™ Basic Brush Set – 5pc

2.  Martha Stewart Crafts™ Paint

3.  Artist’s Loft™ 2 Pack Value Canvas   

The colors I used for this project are : Pink Carnation, Raspberry Ice, Fruit Punch, Turquoise, Surf and Sea Lavender. They are all from the Martha Stewart line.

I hope you enjoyed the quick show I made you! If you want to see the tutorials on two of the crafts in the picture above here are the links!!! Enjoy!!!

1. Wine Cork Board

2.  Champagne-Bottle Wrap


Stay tuned I will be posting a tutorial on how to make a “head” to put on your wall. You will have to come back to see what kind of HEAD I am talking about!!!!

Sending you lots of paint chip colored canvases,

Howdy Hoe Jaderbugs!!! It’s 2012 and I am so excited that I am healthy, happy and hibernating…..it’s sorta cold I tell ya! I got some leopard slippers for Christmas so I actually have a legit “excuse” to wear them. Living in the South you don’t really wear slippers for warmth. Christmas was uh-mazing. I got to spend a lot of time with seester and that is always a bu-last! It’s kind of bitter sweet getting to see her and then parting from her and my babies (god children). If only they didn’t live like…. a BILLION miles away.

We did have a blast though. We did a FUN photo shoot and let me tell ya they are HAWT. I’ll post a few of her that I have edited for you to see her. SHE IS A GEM! So beautiful!

Enough about me, how has your TUESDAY been?  I hope it has gone a little smoother than mine.  Thank GOD (for real)  I am still happy as ever! Just wait till you see the craft I am posting today.  It will surely  make you smile!

                                                I am using Burlap and a plain white sheet
                        Honestly, I didn’t measure because in this case it really didn’t matter.

But depending on how big your curtain rod is, that will determine how big you need to make the fold.

                                                   See! Nothing perfect. Just Shabby Chic is all.
                You want to make sure this measurement is pretty accurate because you will notice it.

Just sew the end  that is not finished (burlap) to the white sheet. Then fold over and iron.

 

How’s it coming!!!!

P.S.  How cute for real!!! I also made some fabric flags just for Valentines Day.
     P.S. Just a little something extra for you. These were totally NOT planned but well worth it!

They are under my sink.

Cutsie Pootsie!

I hope you totally enjoyed this craft! I actually made these curtains over a year ago but wanted to “re-share” them with you! I figured valentines day is near and and they were just delicate enough for this holiday! 

Enjoying my night eating turkey bacon and watching cupcake wars,

Crayon Stained-Glass Hearts

 I am full of LOVE today. Love for my life and LOVE for the Universe. I will be on Martha Stewart’s show today and I am kinda freaking out. I mean, it’s only in front of millions of people. NO pressure, right? What if I say the wrong thing? Will she think I’m silly? I just wanted to post this fun craft and share with you how thrilled I am and this feels like one big DREAM!
Don’t forget I will be covering the event LIVE on my blog so keep checking my blog out!
WISH ME LUCK!
I will be posting LOTS of pictures from the whole thing so stay tuned my little jaderbugs.

 

p.s. for the wooden sticks i used bamboo.  i had these for decoration and just broke one in half.  how easy is that!
p.s. shaving with scissors was the easiest way!
p.s. when you put your 2nd piece of wax paper on top of the shavings, it’s best to put a towel on top before you iron it.  personal experience, it works best :)
p.s. you can use any cookie cutter or you can free hand your design.
p.s. after cutting out the designs simply put one down, put hot glue on the side facing upward then place rope in the middle.  before the glue dries you need to put the other heart on top and press gently with your hand.
p.s. how cute is this!
p.s. if you put it outside, just remember it is made with paper and if it gets wet it will fall apart.
