I hate August… and Gremlins

Monday, October 3rd, 2016


Do you ever feel like there are forces out in the world conspiring against you? Messing stuff up every which way you turn. Maybe it’s Gremlins. Like the pointy eared, green, scaly, don’t-feed-after-midnight kind. If that’s the case and Gremlins actually do exist they were out in full force during the month of August. Which is why I made that bold statement in the above headline. And it’s also why I’m currently sitting here still looking at the above pile of junk. It’s fun junk of course, but it’s been sitting in the middle of my living room for going on two weeks.


Harvest Market Days

Thursday, November 27th, 2014


Hey there it’s me, still alive a kickin’ but just barely. The last two months have been a bit crazy and don’t look to slow down anytime soon, especially since “The Holiday Season” has officially hit. I say it’s officially “The Holiday Season” because I’m writing this post on Thanksgiving Eve, is that a thing? Thanksgiving Eve? I say it is and I guess it doesn’t really matter since it will be Thanksgiving Day by the time I’m done writing. And since in my mind Thanksgiving still falls under the “Fall” category I can sneak this post in under the wire about our Harvest Market Days Sale.

If you remember from one of my last posts (a long, long time ago) I promised to give you all a peek inside my new endeavor, Willow Station.


Halloween Care Package

First Pumpkin

The last time I left you all (which was again, way to long ago) we had time traveled back to October to check out “Revival”. We’re going to stay in October just a bit longer because I have to show you the amazing “care package” my sister concocted for out great-niece Sawyer.


Throwback Thursday – Little Piggies

Brown Paper package

It’s ‘Throwback Thursday’! That’s a thing right? If it isn’t it is now. Actually it’s just a cute title I’m giving this post to make it look like I had every intention of writing it a good five to six months late. So let’s just set my flux capacitor dials back to August of 2013. What? Were you expecting a trip back to the 1950’s ‘Enchantment Under the Sea’ dance? Sorry, nothing that exciting. We’re just going back to last August when I was invited to a baby shower for my beautiful little cousin Malaina. (I for some reason tend to call all of my cousins kids “little cousins” even though many of them are now grown adults as is evidenced by Malaina’s belly.)

I put in an order to sister Kris for some of her cute little burp rags (peas and carrots this time) and then wrapped them up in a “brown paper package all tied up with string” (just sang that as I typed) and headed out in the August heat (remember that August heat? I can’t believe I miss it) for a baby shower in the country.


Hello Kriso – Raggy Crazy

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Welcome to “Hello Kriso”, a new little corner of the “Hey Kerri P” blogosphere that will keep you up to date on all of the crafty goings on down south in the Newman household.

Kris has entered into a region of the craft world that still scares the dickens out of me… sewing. She asked for and received a sewing machine from our parents several years ago for Christmas. Since that time she has been slowly experimenting and teaching herself how to sew. Mom helped out in the beginning but her sewing skills are kind of limited. She can hem and “take in” a pair of jeans like nobody’s business, but that’s about it. I’m by no means making fun of her skills because I received a sewing machine several years ago for Christmas as well and still haven’t even figured out how to thread the darn thing.
