Ribbon Mobile

Use any ribbon you have on hand (ours are fabric) to make a mobile for hanging over a crib or changing table (well out of baby’s reach). Line the inside of one ring of a 13-inch embroidery hoop with double-sided tape. Fold ribbons over ring; press against tape. To hang, tie two 20-inch ribbons to opposite sides of hoop; hang from ceiling.

You know why I loved making this craft? BECAUSE I LOVE EVERY COLOR IN THE WORLD. I feel like everything around me expresses ME. I don’t have a tip top always perfectly put together house but you know what? WE LIVE IN IT! Oh my chichi wachi- I feel dizzy all of a sudden…think it’s from LACK of sleep? If so then here goes nothing:

Dear Sunday,

I can’t wait to meet you.

Jaderbomb.

I hope you dream about ribbons,

Magical Beans Mosaic

This magical bean mosaic is a wonderful activity for kids and adults to do together. I got so aggravated excited every time I saw beans hitting my studio floors. I didn’t know them suckers could BOUNCE! Fa reel! Then Ceaux Ceaux started eating them and all you heard coming from the floor was crunching and some little eyes looking up every now and then knowing she was up to no good. She was probably like “haha, thought you could drop something and pick it up faster than my mouth can pick it up”.

FAIL.

Let’s get started!

Get some wood!

Lot's of BEANS ( you know what this means) HEHE

We can't forget about our Martha Stewart glue gun! (links below)

I put them in separate containers. Makes them stay together...We don't wanna separate the babies do we.

I started by making a small circle with beans in the center of the wood. Yes Jaderbugs, first I put my hot glue down!

Start arranging your BEANS until you like how they look.. Guess we would stay we are BEAN professionals.

Look how DELICIOUS this baby looks! Woud you believe me if I told you I tried eating a raw one.. What? I just wanted to see if it would crack.... Thank GOD it didn't crack me teet.. HAHA. Happy Beaning Jaderbugs!

Sending you a BIG BEAN BABY hug,

Popcorn Wreath

Let me just begin by saying I did a BIG popcorn wreath and SMASHEd  it on the floor! I am so frustrated because I put a sheet over it so nothing would get to it until the morning and when I walked in my studio the next day I WALKED RIGHT ON TOP OF IT. Of course I didn’t see it. I know. If you were to know what being in my shoes have been like in the last week then you would understand not “seeing” something that is right in front of you. It’s such a horror story.

Grab a good ole bag of popcorn! I used organic popcorn because I knew I would be “snacking” while making!

Look how pretty and fluffy this popcorn is!

I started by getting some dental floss and stringing these babies together. I wish I didn’t step on the one that took me 2 hours to make. UGH. I am totally being fonky and making a baby wreath. I’m sorry Jaderbugs! I just don’t have 2 hours to do it all over again! <3 you though!

This is by “baby” wreath! I actually think it’s cute. It looks like the start of an OLYMPICS symbol. HAHA! OH and I just used some twine to hang it!

Love ya, mean it,

Santa Claus Crackers

Oh MYYY Santa Claus! This tasty little treat had me eating more than I wanted last night. I didn’t know I even liked this stinking pepperoni. Where have I been. I though pepperoni only came on pizzas.

Assemble jolly hors d’oeuvres for a holiday party with kids among the guests. Your kids can be little helpers: Use kitchen scissors to cut a pepperoni hat; attach to cracker with a dab of ricotta. Spread on a ricotta beard. Add celery slices for mustache and capers for eyes and nose. Cover bottom of hat with more ricotta for fluffy trim.

I love love love this little santa’s! AND THEY ARE GOOD!

Running around like a fool trying to squeeze everything into one day but doing because I heart my Jaderbugs,

How to Etch Glass

If you want to personalize a cup or plate then you want to continue reading this post! Sometimes things look REALLY hard but are REALLY easy! Let’s check it out!

All you will need is glass conditioner and etching cream! I got these babies at Michael’s.

I used this frost etching! Get some HERE. It’s really easy to do. The only advice I can give you is don’t leave the stencil on ALL night and expect your edges to be clean and crisp in a couple of days… EPIC FAIL (see below) Paahahah

But, it’s still super easy and totally unique!

Wishing I could get this Laffy Taffy ornament to open,

Sequin Ball Earrings

Get festive in a flash by donning a pair of homemade sequin ball earrings.

Sequin-wrapped wooden beads are attached to stud posts and chains from a jewelry-supply store. The only thing different than using sequins is using Martha Stewart’s fabulous GLITTER!!!

I figured I would jaderbomb the earrings plus glitter is much prettier than sequins…ahhh this red glitter makes my heart beat really fast!!!

Get some glitter HERE

I used this awesome Martha Stewart wide tip glue pen. This is so cool. When the glue comes to the tip it is BLUE!!

Get some wooden balls. I got these from Michaels Art’s and Craft’s. They were like…1.00 for a pack of 4.

Grab some earring findings from your local craft store.

Coat your wooden ball with the BLUE glue!!!

Oh wait! Get your hot glue gun and put this little sucker on it! (or you can use super glue)

These babies are coming together!!

These babies are SO FANCY!!!

Oh if you know me then you know I wear two different earrings at a time! Not sure why but I do. I am giving the red ones to my friend Jess (sorry if your reading this haha) because yesterday she said she LOVED the red glitter.. and I made a gold one for my left ear lobe… Not sure what I will match it up with yet.

FULL OF GLITTER

Dot-Punched Stationery

Give everyday — and inexpensive — note cards and envelopes some flair by trimming the edges with a decorative rotary cutter or using Martha Stewart’s paper punches…(which by the way are MAGNIFICENT)…

Bottle Beauty

GOOD MORNING JADERBUGS!!!

I hope you love this craft because I am ADDICTED to it. I want to “paint” everything clear that I see.  Transform everyday vessels into elegant vases by coating their interiors with glass enamel. Any container will do — buy up old bottles at a flea market or try kitchen cast-offs, such as jam jars. We used white enamel, which yielded different shades of green depending on the tint of the glass.

I got all of my products at Michaels arts and crafts store. If you don’t have one locally you can go to Delta Creative and order some! 

Wash the bottle inside and out with soapy water; let dry. Pour in a small amount of the paint’s surface conditioner, which primes the glass for the enamel. Swirl to coat fully, then pour out excess.

Stand bottle upright, and dry for an hour. Pour in enough enamel to easily coat the inside. Swirl, and return excess to container for reuse.

This is so pretty! Make sure you coat it good so you don’t have streaks.

I mixed a little white and blue to get this effect! So pretty!!

All I did was pout the 2 colors in the container and started painting the inside.

I dressed them up with my homemade pom poms! Did you see my post on how to make them? Check it out HERE!

See how fun these suckers look! I hope you have fun making some! OH! Check out my video I made on “How to Paint on Glass”… I did this a while ago so forgive if it’s cheezy. haha

OVERWHELMED with everything I have to do but I will feel better when it’s bedtime,

Glitter Bird Centerpiece

Jaderbugs! I am serious when I tell you this is a craft you can display all year long. The only thing you would have to do is change the colors of glitter for each occasion! This craft was so relaxing and I could totally do this ALL day! Let’s go! Just think you could do purple/gold for LSU, red/white for UL, purple/gold/green for Mardi Gras…or whatever holiday’s you might celebrate.

Tools and Materials
Small craft brush
Feathered birds
White glue
Glitter in various textures and hues
Thin lametta tinsel
Branch

These are some of the materials I used.  The only think I did not put in this picture is a brush. OH and my birdies. I used the iridescent glitter from martha stewart, mod podge and branches from my yard.

When I saw this branch I just had to get it. It look’s like a big claw hand. Right!

Seriously. How pretty is this picture. It looks like pink gems and a magical wand. I might put that on my list to Santa. {{along with my Hello Kitty bag:)

Make sure you collect all of your glitter so you don’t loose these precious jewels.

Sea of green…

How Pretty is this sucker! I love the way they turned out. If you notice I didn’t glitter the entire branch. I like little nuggets showing up in different spots. HAHA

Like this little birdie who looked sad and lonely and wanted some sparkles on her.

Whatduhya know. Look what I found. LIttle glitter babies full of glitter. I may have just saved these birdies lives!!!

Yep. They look so much happier.

I love glitter. Why does it make me feel good in 3 seconds.

Weeeeeeeeee…I hope you had a great day jaderbugs and I hope you enjoyed this craft!!!

Falling asleep faster than I expected tonight,
