Happy Hump Day all you crafty crafters! It's Jade here showing you how make glittery, swirly ornaments. I know Christmas is almost here but I have an idea for you that you might just love. When we think of "ornaments" we think of buying them and putting them on our tree. This usually happens a few weeks before Christmas, right! BUT, what if you make a dozen DIY ornaments and give them to someone as a gift! Let's face it, decorative ornaments can be pricey but if you make them for a special person next year when they start decorating their tree they will fall in love all over again! They will think of you as they put every single ornament on their tree. Plus its something they can use year after year! Whattya say?! 
Let's get started!

Colorful Crystal Watch Band


I have a jumbo thing for watches. They're functional so I can wear them any time and there is something comforting about the way they wrap around my wrist. So I thought a personalized, crystallized watch band would make an amazing gift. 

Unfortunately I've decided to gift myself with this one because I LOVE it! Oops!

10 Minute Bead Mosaic

Mosaics are always an awesome way to create 3D works of art, but the traditional process can be messy and cumbersome with grout, tile adhesive, and all kinds of stuff that make a really bummer out of a Saturday afternoon. Lucky for us, there is Tacky glue to the rescue! 
This project takes no time at all, and is a great way to use up spare beads and junk jewelry. Anyone who has partaken in a Mardi Gras celebration probably has a bunch of beads laying around the house just waiting for an opportunity to shine!

Glitterville Christmas - An Interview With Stephen Brown

It is rare that I pick up a craft book these days that I can't put down. Maybe I have been around the crafty block one too many times and seen it all. Then along comes Stephen Brown and Glitterville. You have seen his amazing sisal trees staring back at you from the shelves of Anthropologie this winter. You have probably pinned his glass octopus ornaments. More importantly you need to move his new book right up to the top of your Christmas list. Not just for you, but for all your crafty friends. Take out a pen and paper right now....Dear Santa, For Christmas this year please bring me a copy of Glitterville's Handmade Christmas: A Glittered Guide for Whimsical Crafting. You can thank me later.
