“No problem of human destiny is beyond human means.”-John F. Kennedy

As I sit here with a hot cup of cocoa I am enjoying thinking back on our Christmas. Even though it’s over I will not be sad because we had a great Christmas (season). Sometimes life get’s so chaotic that you forget to enjoy the MIDDLE. You know those moments when you are so focused on the end getting here that you totally miss out on what happens in between. I’m sure just like everyone else reading this there are some things that you wish were a little different or wished for things to happen in a different way but why stress over things that are not worth stressing over! I wanted to share with you a few things that put a smile on my face this season.

How to grow a tulip

One of our good friends Reno sent us a HUGE box full of flowers last week. I have to say it was so fun when we went to our front door to find a HUGE box there. I was like “what what”.  I had to share a close up of one of the tulips. They are still so pretty. It was a mix of red and white. I wish they lasted forever because they make me smile so much. Thanks Reno, we love you. 

Tips on making a Gingerbread House

The next thing that was super awesome this year was our gingerbread house. We do one every year but this year we really outdid ourselves. A few years ago Ash bought me a cookie cutter set to make your own homemade gingerbread house and can you believe we have never used it? It’s like I forget every year! Next year we will use it “fo sho”. Wanna know why? Cause the ones you buy in the store will break yo teeth! How do you like Ash’s little person on a couch. I think it’s so cute. Lil one went crazy with icing on the house! 

How to decorate a christmas tree

I am so sad. Today we took down our beautiful tree. This year we put up 3 trees but this one was my favorite. Click HERE to see before and after of our tree. This month I was featured on Yahoo!Homes AND they featured two of my DIY tutorials. Click HERE to check out the article. I really loved the wrapping paper that looked like an old newspaper so much that I made sure to keep some after the presents were open. Stay tuned for a tutorial with it this week! 

Teal and White Decor

Last thing I am MOST excited about is this little beauty that I actually bought last night at Target. I went to check out the things on clearance and as we were leaving Lil one said “Mom!, check this out. It’s totally you”… I wasn’t sure if I wanted to cry just because he “know’s” me so well or cry because he is so thoughtful. If you are wondering if I bought it, YEP! I pretty much fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. 

Teal and White Decor

I actually decided that next year my “Christmas Decor” will be based around this little beauty. I am not sure of the name brand because it didn’t have it on the actual house. There was only ONE so I’m sorry! I will try to find out. I can’t wait to have a glistening candy land next year! 

I hope you enjoyed a little view into my Christmas! So excited to share some BIG news with you but I have to wait a little longer! (eeekk I hate waiting to share fun things, and this is FUN)

Stay tuned for some funny funn fun DIY tutorials in the next few days. If you are wondering where I have been for the last few day’s I kinda took off just to enjoy my family! But I am back and FULL O’ GAS! 

See ya in the next post!

Happy Friday Jaderbugs! I couldn’t wait to share this amazing thing that happened yesterday. It is pretty awesome, at least for me it is. When I started my blog 2 1/2 years ago I never imagined it would end up defining me as a person. This blog, sorta saved me. It all started as a way to “show” the things I love. I had NO intention of ever having a DIY-Craft blog. Guess the Universe showed me, hehe.  I have always been crafty I just never realized that others could possibly enjoy the things I create as much as I do. I never understood this thing that my brain does. I can look at something and the thoughts just come flooding in. Sometimes they are so overwhelming that I have to jot them down just to remember them. If I don’t jot it down I feel like I might not ever think of it again. This is mainly how I create all of my crafts that I post on Jaderbomb. Don’t get me wrong, I get ton’s of inspiration from everything I encounter daily but I can’t ever stop thinking of ways to “change” things or simplify them. I love showing ways to use every day items to decorate your home with. There is something special that happens to a person when they see something beautiful that they made. It’s something a store bought item can’t ever give to you.

A few weeks ago I got an email from a friend asking if I wanted to be in an article about hosting a crafting party. Of course I said YES, while I was JUMPING all over the place. I didn’t know exactly what it was for or where it was going to be but I am down with anything crafty. The best thing is that I was able to do this with a good friend of mine, Lenore. She was the producer of my show when I was on Martha Stewart. Click here to check it out.

So here is the picture of the front page of Yahoo!Homes! I am SOOO excited you just can’t imagine! If you click on the picture below it will take you there. They featured my
Cotton Ball Garland and my Candy Decorations

See that shiny gold candy picture!

I feel so blessed and can’t wait to share with you more amazing things happening in Jaderbomb land! Enjoy this good read.
