Happy Monday, Crafty Friends!
And happy first day of spring!


Today I have another card to share for the fun new challenge feature over at Photo Play Paper, the Mix and Match Challenge. To play along, simply pull out your Photo Play collection kits, and mix and match them into unique, one-of-a-kind creations, like my card here that combines the bohemian Rhapsody collection with the summer travel line, Boarding Pass.


This month’s contest is open until March 28th. To enter, share your card creation with us on our Facebook page and tag us on IG using the hashtag #audreymarchmixandmatch for a chance to win a collection pack of your choice. Hope you join in on the fun!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I think we made a final college decision, which is very exciting here in our house. And I’ve been working away on some new additions for my shop, and think I’m finally ready for the grand opening of my spring shop. Be sure to check out my AudOnes Prims Facebook page throughout the week for sneak peek previews and all the details.

In Like a Lamb

Hello Sweet Friends! Happy Wednesday, and happy first day of March!

p1130285
We are expected to hit a high of 83 degrees today. I know I mentioned this the other day, but really, this is unseasonably warm weather for this time of year. I think that old phrase, March comes in like a lion, falls way short of the mark. Looks like March is coming in like a lamb, and probably will leave like one, too… or perhaps some even gentler animal, like a baby chick or a baby harp seal.

p1130288
My poor winter snowmen have been quite out-of-place these past couple of weeks. We’ve been trying to hold on, waiting for winter to make an appearance, but I’ve finally given up. So my frosty friends are now making their way into storage, and a few shamrocks are coming out instead.

p1130286
While I tend to go overboard for many of the holidays, I don’t do much for St. Patrick’s Day. When Easter is early, I usually skip it completely. But Easter is later this year, and that gives me an excuse to break out a few lucky charms.

p1130287
As a hunter and gatherer, I have managed to collect enough “schtuff” over the years for a few small scenes. Anything with a bit of green will do. Vintage transferware dishes. An old trusty rusty watering can. A few precious Majolica plates. And of course some of my own funky junk handmade pieces. I gotta have a few of those.

p1130282
Over time, I’ve managed to amass quite the collection of handmade bits. Clovers from paper bags. Clovers from foil. Water-colored clovers. Shabby hand-painted clovers from fabric. And of course, a pair of leprechaun monster dolls (made by my Missy Nik and me), too.

p1130283
I think the older I get, the more I appreciate the sentimentality of homemade. So you know how that goes….

p1130281
A little bit of decorating leads to a little bit of crafting, for more things with which to do a little more decorating!

p1130289
My poor basket looked a little bare, so I figured a few more shamrocks were in order. Prim shabby shamrocks made from my latest crafty love, Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements fabric.

audonesprims-st-patricksdaytuck
I used some adorable Ledger fabric from the Wallflower collection for the backing, creating a bit of messy patchwork from torn and stitched strips of fabric. I really love the worn collage look that brings. The shamrocks have been pieced from fabric hand-tinted with Distress Inks, and topped with my favorite twine and vintage pearl buttons.

I made a few for me, and there’s some for you, too, if you’re interested. Just listed in my AudOnes Prims Shop.

AudOnes Prims- Valentine Misfit Dolls

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends!

It’s been a right long time since I’ve had the chance to play with fabric. Between the rush of the holidays and the Creativation CHA show in January, there hasn’t been an extra moment to spare. And you all know me….. I go through withdrawals without my fabrics. I do.

audonesprims-lululongstockingsmisfitdoll2
I finally carved out enough time to re-bond with my sewing machine this past week, and that makes me one very happy girl. I’m pushing it on Valentine’s this year, getting the late start that I am. But I couldn’t let the holiday pass completely. So I do have a couple of little misfit dollies to offer today. For your special Valentine, or for you.

There’s silly sweet Valentine voodoo dollies, and a new Valentine art doll, too.

Keeping Warm with Therm O Web

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

It seems like once Halloween is over, time just has a way of gathering momentum and zipping by. The holidays will be here before we know it. And if you are already feeling short on time, and are looking for holiday gift giving ideas, then be sure to stop by the Therm O Web blog. All month long, the team has tons of quick, easy, last-minute, and do-able projects to share with you.

audreypettit-thermoweb-snuggleupframe
I don’t know about you, but that sweet little snowman face kinda melts my heart a bit. Love snowmen for the holidays, and all winter long, too. Such a fun way to add some cheer in the cold winter months. And better yet, this easy, no-sew project can be completed in under 15 minutes. A definitely plus when the rush of the holidays begin.

audreypettit-thermoweb-snuggleupframe2
I tend to grab up wooden frames whenever I get the chance, and keep them on hand for last minute project ideas like this. They’re usually readily available at second-hand stores for just a few cents, or can be found unfinished at your big box craft stores for very little cost, too. Then just remove the glass and add your favorite papers and embellishments. This is the Snow Patrol collection by Simple Stories and sequins by 28 Lilac Lane, and an adorable Therm O Web fleece snowman.

audreypettit-thermoweb-snuggleupframe2

I added vintage buttons and a big carrot nose. A little hand-stitching for the mouth. Therm O Web Fabric Fuse tape easily keeps fabric, even thick fleece like this, in place. I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Or, you can find this holiday cutie ready-to-go in my AudOnes Prims Holiday Shop, too!

Happy Shopping!

From the Shop- Brown Eyed Sue and Daisy Lu

Happy Monday, Crafty Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Sweet Annie pup went home Friday night, and I have been grateful for a couple of quiet days to just rest and recharge the old batteries. I knew a puppy was work, but ohmyword that little one is constant energy. And constant teeth.

AudOnesPrims BrownEyedSue3
Crissy and I have both made the most of our puppy-free weekend. She has enjoyed some peaceful long walks and naps, and I managed to start a new book and got caught up on some Netflix watching, which is serious business in my house. And, even better, I finally got back to crafting, and managed to finish up those new flower girl dollies.

AudOnesPrims BrownEyedSue2
It’s just about time to close up my Summer Shop. But of course, with the puppy here, I got behind. So I’ll keep the shop open a few more days, and add these new flower girls for you.

I made more Brown-Eyed Sues.

And here is her cousin, Little Daisy Lu.
