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.

Valentine Love at AudOnes Prims

** Hi, Friends! If you’re looking for my Creativation 2018- Tim Holtz Blog Hop and Give Away post, please click HERE!**

Happy Sunday, everyone! And happy Super Bowl Sunday to all the football fans out there!


It has been quite awhile since I’ve had the chance to share any of my shabby sweet fabric projects with you. The holidays and my new work schedule, and then the Creativation (CHA) show following right behind, has left little time for play…. and I sure do miss it. So I was super excited earlier this week to grab a chance to sit down at my sewing machine and whip up some soft and pretty Valentine hearts for the month of love!


There’s just something about the process of crafting things by hand that brings such a sense of happiness and joy to me. What fun it is to watch the project evolve along every little step of the way, and see that finished spark of an idea come to life. These little cuties have really been put through the ringer, and I love how they turned out. The sweet recycled fabric with the little rips and tears that perfectly meld with the aged painted, stained, and sanded finish. The paper crafting supplies brought in for the finishing touches….Distress inks for dying the fabrics and trims. Archival ink for stamping. Old favorite Hero Arts stamps for verse. Maya Road designer pins. And dies for spiral roses. Makes me smile. Hope you do, too.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your football today!

And in case you’re interested, you can find these shabby little XOXO hearts listed in my AudOnes Prims Shop. ❤ Have a great day!

An Old Fashioned Christmas with Photo Play Paper


Hello, hello friends, and happy Wednesday! I’m taking advantage of a relatively quiet morning here at my house to share with you all another holiday card that I made at my scrapbooking retreat back in October. Emphasis this year is trying to use up leftovers from a pair of favorite older holiday collections. This card was made with the adorable Dear Santa kit from Photo Play Paper.


This time, I pulled some of the brown woodgrain print from the papers to pair with another favorite of mine, kraft. I do so love the look of red, white, and natural kraft for the holidays.


To add some interest to the background I used a Hero Arts stencil and white ink with a blending tool. Popped up the sentiment banner and bells for a bit of extra dimension, too.

I felt pretty good about getting my holiday cards done in October, but I’m chagrined to say that I haven’t gotten any of them in the mail yet! Oy…. I need to get a move on! Hope holiday prep is going a bit smoother at your house!

2017 Halloween Haunted House Tour- The Finale

Happy Friday, friends!
And welcome to the last day of my annual Halloween Haunted House tour.
Today’s stop is the sunroom.


My sunroom is in the back corner of my house and is surrounded by two full walls of windows, letting in lots of natural light. It is, by far, my favorite spot in my house to just sit…. and as a consequence, I’ve absolutely packed the room chock full of spooks. Perfect for taking in over a nice cup of coffee.


As always, I’ve got a ton of photos to share. So you may want to grab a cup of coffee, too.
I hope you enjoy the tour!


Soon the trick or treaters will be here, and it will be time to take down the haunts for another year. But for now, I’m going to enjoy my little ghosts and goblins for as long as I can. And as last minute as it is…. I still have a few special handmade prims left in my shop, for anyone wanting to add to their collection. I’ve added a new princess ghost that you may remember, too.


Giselle the Princess Ghost is now available
HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and for the sweet comments on my Halloween tour! Wishing you all a very wonderful weekend!
