Shop Small Saturday with AudOnes Prims

Hello sweet friends!
Happy Saturday. Happy Small Business Saturday, that is!

I am so excited for this special day for small shop owners, like me. I couldn’t let the day pass without some fun things to share with you! I have filled my shop with a brand new line-up of  holiday creations. Some special guys that kinda steal my heart. I hope you will enjoy.

All my new items today are one-of-a-kind works of he(art), that I hope will fill your holiday home with lots of cheer. Lots of sweet and shabby snowmen and their little friends, in need of a new home.

I’ve had so much fun with this new release, and I hope you love it, too. All my new items are loaded to my Holiday Shop and are ready to go.

Plus, you’ll find special markdowns on all remaining prims from my shop opening, too. This is a one day sale, so be sure to hurry! And don’t forget, today only, I’ll refund your shipping costs on all orders over $75.

It all starts HERE!

Happy shopping!

Small Business Saturday at AudOnes Prims

Hello, hello, Crafty Friends!
Happy Black Friday.
Hope all of my friends in the States had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Did you all have big plans yesterday? I went out to the most amazing seafood buffet with friends. So nice and simple, and such a peaceful way to spend the holiday. Today, of course, kicks off the biggest shopping weekend of the year. Now I personally am not one for the Black Friday crowds. As a matter of fact, looking back, I don’t think I’ve ever gone shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. No, I prefer the quiet at home. .. taking down the fall decor and starting to put up the tree. But I have been known to take advantage of a great online deal or two, though! 😀

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, and if you are doing some shopping, I’ve got some great deals for you! I am celebrating this special day for small shop owners with markdowns, free shipping, and a brand new holiday release at AudOnes Prims!

If you’re looking for truly unique holiday gifts, I hope you will come take a peek. This new release is filled with my favorites…. snowmen and gingers, and maybe even a Christmas mouse. And all are special handmade one-of-a-kinds.

Tomorrow only, enjoy:

  • markdowns on all remaining previously-released holiday prims
  • free shipping on all orders over $75 (shipping charges on orders over $75 refunded via PayPal)
  • a new line-up of one-of-a-kind holiday prims

It all starts at 10:00 a.m. EST

right HERE

Happy Holidays!

Happy New Year

Popping in to wish you a very happy New Year! May 2016 bring us all health, happiness, and much crafty play time!

The last of my CHA boxes are finally out the door, so I’m starting off the new year with a clean slate and a feeling of peace. Hopefully I’ll have something new to share soon, but for now I’m just enjoying the time I have with my parents and kiddos. But before I say goodbye completely to 2015, I do have one piece of old business from my AudOnes shop.

So Jolly with BasicGrey Juniper Berry



Hello my friends! Happy Black Friday! I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving holiday yesterday. And now that Thanksgiving is officially over, let the holiday crafting begin!

AudreyPettit BG JuniperBerry SoJollyCardI’m kicking off the Christmas season today with a holiday card made with BasicGrey’s Juniper Berry collection. A simple, rustic card in my favorite shabby style, all tied up in elegant touches of vellum and gold.

AudreyPettit BG JuniperBerry SoJollyCard2I really love how versatile this collection is. I’ve got a second Juniper Berry card, done up in a retro 50’s vibe, up on the BasicGrey blog, if you’d like to see more.

Time Out

I really wish I could put myself in time out this morning!  What a crazy, crazy weekend we had!  Pete had two consecutive sleep-overs, and Nik had one.  Nik went to a birthday party, and Peter finally got his long overdue party. Then there were several play dates in between, as well. Plus, we had some friends come over yesterday afternoon to give Nik a long awaited art lesson.  Felt like I was on over-drive the entire time.  And did I think to take any photos during all this activity?  Nope….not a single one.  And I call myself a scrapbooker!

Really wish I would have gotten some of Peter and his friends.  Especially when we all packed into the van to head to the movies.  5 thirteen year old boys can look a bit frightening from the outside.  All of them had long hair, bangs into the eyes, baggy clothing, etc, etc. One was so bad I thought for sure he couldn’t even see where he was going.   They spent the whole time singing various skits from YouTube.  I was snickering, especially when they started dividing up the parts, fighting over who got to do which bit.  They look like a bunch of drowned rats.  Sorry boys!  fun stuff, though.

Now that it’s over, I’m enjoying the peace.  I have tons of things to clean up and put back in order, and I still haven’t finished my cards or my shopping.  Yikes!  I really need to get off the computer!

But before I do, I have one more super simple page to share using the December kit from Paper-Playground.


It’s a bit hard to tell from the scan, but I machine stitched a double row of lines around the entire perimeter of the page and then painted the space between the stitches.  I also painted the holly leaves on the Kaiser wooden flourish, and broke the piece into two to use on separate spots on the page.  I let the die-cut photo mat be the star of the page and just added a few pieces of patterned paper, some of the flocked MM brads, touches of ribbon, and that gorgeous bling title.  I added a few MM mini alpha stickers from my stash to finish off the title work.  I just love this sweet and happy photo of Nik from several Christmases ago.  She loves everything about Christmas still, and even though she’s been told by plenty of friends and classmates that Santa does not really exist, she still chooses to believe to this day.  I hope she never looses that magic and joy that she feels now.

Today is December 15th, and that means that the Paper-Playground kits are packed and waiting for the mailman at my doorstep as we speak.  Just one more task that I managed to accomplish this weekend.  I do love seeing the kits lined up and ready to go.  There are still a few left, if anyone is interested!  I also want to let you all in on a very secret sale for all my bloggy friends.  All of our previous kits are on sale for 25% off now through the end of the year.  The sale includes any kit, except for the current December kit.  We have tons to choose from.  They would make a wonderful gift for yourself or anyone on your scrappy list.  You can check out the previous kits by following the link from either the home page, or the join the club page.  Just leave me a comment if you are interested!  I can do that, cause I’m the co-owner, right? 😉

Have a great day everyone!
