In winter, when all your windows are shut tight, your house can take on a stale smell. Odors from your furnace, from cooking, even laundry, can make the air in your house not very pleasant to smell. But there is an easy fix for this! Simmering Potpourri is easy to make and gives your house a most delicious fragrance.
I am really sick and tired of the ugly bi-fold doors on many of the closets in my home. The crazy things are always falling off the tracks, or getting stuck. They make me want to scream! But screaming will not get me anywhere, so instead I decided to upcycle them into small French doors. All I had to do was to figure out how!
If you are like me, you have a bunch of jeans that are faded at the knees and seams. They are still in good shape, meaning they are not work jeans, but they are faded from too many washings, or maybe they were too light colored when you bought them. You can rejuvenate them and make them look new again! Save yourself the money of buying new and you get to keep jeans that you already love. Sound like a win/win to me.
I hadn't planned to post any more this week, I swore I was going to take the rest of the week off, but this afternoon when I was browsing in Hometalk, and I ran across the cutest thing......if I didn't share it with you I surely would have burst! Unfortunately, I do not have any small kids anymore, but if I had some daughters, I would not rest until I made this for them. Check it out:
I was looking around on the website Hometalk looking at all the really cool crafts and home decor ideas. I do this a couple times a week, I would do it more but I can't afford the time. I could spend hours on that site, love their innovative posts!
But, I digress. During my travels on Hometalk, I saw one of the cutest, and simplest ideas that I have seen in years. I just lit up! I immediately emailed Lisa, of The Pennington Point website and asked her if I could feature her idea here on Homemade by Jade. I just had to share it with you all, it is adorable!
These candle holders are so easy to make and can be dressed up for the holidays or dressed down. They are beautiful in almost any decor. If you want to make yourself a set of these, the tutorial is here:

I love simple Christmas decorations. The clean lines without all the schmaltz seems to reduce my stress and help me feel more peaceful.....
