Picture Holders that ROCK

Happy Sunday Jaderbugs! I hope everyone is having a happy and peaceful day! Guess what! We bought a fish today.
{{insert a big ole yay}}

Just one more thing for ME to clean, haha! I really think it’s the prettiest fish I have ever seen. It’s obviously a Beta because let’s face it, I couldn’t keep anything else alive. How do I know? I have tried MANY a few times and never been successful. So, we get home with our fish and I notice all of this WHITE stuff all over it. I’m thinking wow Jade, you have had it for 3 hours and already gave it a bacteria infection. Just kidding, but I did look it up and it is an infection. They say (whoever “they” are) this happen’s from being in those little containers for so long and they don’t ever clean the water! I transfered it to a much bigger bowl, put shiny jewels at the bottom, stuck 2 big sand dollars in them and gave it tons of fresh water!

ALERT! ALERT! I wrote this post this afternoon and three hours after Free Willy came home… it DIED! I know, I can’t believe it either! Click HERE to see Free Willy.

Wer’e not sure what we are gonna name it yet but I’m thinking something like….Free Willy! What do ya think! I mean, I know it’s not a WHALE but I sure saved it’s butt!!!!

Now to the craft.


If you want to glitter your rock do this step before so you know how big it needs to be!

Make sure when you do this part that the wire it tight!

You know I am using my Martha Stewart glitter! It’s is by far my FAVORITE!!! I do a section then let it dry before I move on. You can glitter the whole thing at one time if you want to!

This is how your rock will start to look if you decide to “glitter” it!

I like to use a round object to “start” if off then use my finger to roll the rest

I LOVE MOD PODGE! My friend Amy’s new book just came out! Make sure to check it out! It has TON’S of amazing project’s in it. It’s called MOD PODGE ROCKS!

I love this picture! I feel like the rock and the picture go perfectly together!

Everything about this picture makes me smile!

Sending you ton’s and ton’s of big hugs!

    Poor Free Willy, may he rest in peace. I too, have lost a couple of fish to bacterial infections, but since then I have managed to stave them off pretty well by buying one of those fish medicines from Walmart, Ick Away is a pretty good example! About the project, I love how fine the glitter is, it looks better than the glitter in the chunkier bits, which I think would have looked tacky but that gold rock looked great! I might have to re-purpose some of my mom’s rock collection for the sake of some picture holders! Thank you for more inspiration!

    If you get another Betta, while it’s good to move him to a larger tank, you need to pour his old water into it, and add no more than 50% new – bottled – water.
    And remove 2/3rds of that water each week, adding back – yep – bottled water.
    The gunk at the bottom isn’t what killed him – infections will clear up over time but all fresh water = deader than dinner.

    What a great craft! I love the gold glitter. So, paint, then glitter? I like that. We decided to get a fish – a goldfish – about 2 years ago. Actually we got two (one for each kid). Well, my daughter lost two in a row and then my son’s died, but for some strange reason we have had the same goldfish for 1.5 year now. That thing just keeps going and going. The biggest mistake people make with fish is overfeeding. We sometimes skip a day and don’t feed him (or her) at all. Apparently goldfish can go days without eating. Who knew? Good luck with the next one! Sometimes you just have to hit on the right fish.
