Happy Easter

Popping in today to wish my friends and family who celebrate, a very happy Easter!
May your house be filled with the blessings of the day, and hope the Easter Bunny brings you a wee bit of chocolate, too!


As you all know by now, it wouldn’t be much of a holiday at my house without a little seasonal decor. So in honor of this special day, here’s a peek at some of my spring things.


The dining room sideboard is once again filled with vintage ironstone and my favorite transferware dishes. This time, the plates are a combo of Johnson Brothers Friendly Village with some no-name pattern that I like to call “My Happy Place”. I think I would transport myself to that sweet farm house in a heartbeat if I could.


Of course I’ve managed to sneak in a few of my handmade things. Chicks in nests and Old Mother Goose, and some twine-wrapped eggs, too.


For my front entryway table, I went for a very simple and natural look.


White and green, bunnies and chickens, and a few nests, too.


A few more handmade cuties are tucked here and there.


My chocolate bunnies and vintage crepe paper eggs. My new Lori Mitchell figurine I managed to score for a song this year. My mom gave me this amazing antique wooden scoop at Christmas, and I love it for creating a little scene.


The wee bunny in the wire basket is a new guy I made this year at one of my weekly crafty play dates with the girls. The mushrooms are another project we tackled this month, too. Our first attempt at spun cotton. Hope to try that again soon.


It’s so hard to believe that Easter is here already. The year just flies by so quickly, don’t you think? Of course now I’m already thinking ahead to the next thing. I should really get started on crafting some summer things. And my sweet little missy Nik’s 20th birthday is this upcoming week. So lots to do, and lots to celebrate.

But before I move too far forward, I have one last spring bunny to share with you. A custom order I’ve been working on. From my little Easter Bunny to yours, wishing you all a very wonderful day!

Spring Preview- Fresh Produce


Hi friends, happy Wednesday! I’m back today with another sneak peek from my new spring shop goodies. These mischievous guys have been caught red-handed out in the garden, filling their pockets full of fresh produce. Naughty bunnies!


Is it spring in your neck of the woods yet? Our temperatures soared into the mid 70’s last week, but we’ve dipped way down into the gloomy chill again. Looks like March will come in like a lion this year. Even so, I’m taking down the winter snowmen this week. Time for bunnies, don’t you think?

If you’re ready for spring things, too, stay tuned for my upcoming shop opening.

New goodies are coming to my AudOnes Prims shop, and I thought this week that I’d share some sneak peeks. Starting today with these sweet and shabby fabric carrots. Perfect companion for the bunnies to come.

Shine Brightly Lantern Box with Tim Holtz & Sizzix

Hi friends, happy Friday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Here we are, only a few days into the New Year, and already I’m falling behind on my attempts to get back to my regular blogging schedule. Seems that even though the holidays are now officially over, things are as busy as ever here at my house. The big CHA-Creativation show is in two short weeks, and I am holed up in my craft room working away. Lots of secret things in the works. So not much new to share right now.


Thinking of CHA, though, has reminded me of last year’s show projects, including a few that I never got the chance to share…. like this lantern box I made for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations booth. A cute little winter inspired project, fitting for this time of year.


The lantern is such a fun and easy box to assemble, and I love the 3D nature of the design. Perfect for home decor, or even a tiny little gift box. And it’s the perfect size for a battery votive candle, too. I decorated the top of my lantern with winter greens and a pair of tattered pinecones. A shabby bow and a slim hang tag. Coated the bouquet with Distress glitter for a bit of snowy shine.


I lined the lantern windows with clear acetate sheet. The base for the lantern is one of Tim’s Vignette Boxes, turned upside down and lightly painted and sparkled. A fun accent for some winter home decor.
Hope your 2018 is off to a great start! Happy weekend!

FYI: *Edited to add: All Sizzix and Tim Holtz products are currently on SALE at Scrapbook.com. Great time to take advantage and stock up on some deals!

A Mad4Plaid December with Photo Play Paper & A Shop Update!


Hi Friends, happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start! I’ve got two little furballs here with me again today, which is definitely keeping me on my toes. But I’m hoping to sneak in here really quickly to share a fun holiday project with all of you, and a bit of news on my AudOnes Prims shop, too!


A little while back, my friends at Photo Play Paper joined up with the gang at Maya Road to share some holiday inspiration featuring Maya Road’s adorable embellishments along with PPP’s super fun Mad4Plaid Christmas collection. I made several cards for the match-up, along with this little guy here… a frosty snowman scene vignette box.


I coated both the insides and outsides of the box with a variety of patterned papers, and added a popped-up die cut tag to the inside to do double-duty as both the focal point and sentiment. Maya Road bottle brush trees bring a touch of the woodlands to the scene. Love the icy look a bit of white paint and chunky glitter bring to the party, too.


SHOP UPDATE!
(Edited: all items are now listed! Hope you enjoy!)

I know some of you have been asking, and I’m so excited to say that, puppies permitting, I am planning on adding a few new items to my AudOnes Prims Holiday Shop today… including this sweet vignette box here and a few new frosty friends!

Wish me luck! And stay tuned!

2017 Halloween Haunted House Tour- Day 3

Hi Friends, and welcome to day three of my annual Halloween haunted house tour! So far, we’ve peeked into my eerie entry and deadly dining room, and today I thought we’d step into the lurid living room and gaze upon my morbid mantel.

As usual, I have lots of photos to share. So let’s dive right into it! I hope you enjoy the tour!


Next week we’ll wrap things up with my spooky sunroom, the last stop on this year’s tour. Just in time for the real spooks to arrive! Until then, hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
