Ayden’s Milestones

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

Since we’re on the subject of birthdays… I was scrolling through my Facebook feed a few weeks ago and noticed a certain young man had turned two. Oh holy crap! I have now been officially meaning to make a blog post for a whole year. Yes folks, I am an entire year behind. None of you out there are really surprised are you?

Like Michael Phelps returning to the sport he dominates as well as another Olympics filled with nothing but gold, I too have decided to return from my self-imposed blogging hiatus.

Hellooo…. echo… echo… echo… hellooo… echo …. echo … anybody out there? Is anybody in blogland still checking in on me? I kind of doubt it since I pretty much abandoned my post these last few months. To say I was completely unprepared for the holidays this year would be a huge understatement.

‘BOO’ to you

Once upon1

My holidays are starting to blur together. I blame this Willow Station thing. You see I was working on Halloween and Thanksgiving projects way back in August and now my studio is starting to look like Santa’s Workshop and it isn’t even Halloween! And to add salt to the wound, I’m the kind of person that get’s completely annoyed when I head to Hobby Lobby (which I seem to do every single Saturday, yet another annoyance) in search of fall foliage and end up having to wade through all of the Christmas ornaments to get to it. So here I sit, in my haunted house wishing you a Merry Christmas with my paintbrush.

Mahoney Day

Mahoney maps

It came and passed. My most dreaded of days… Mahoney Day. The NFL has Draft Day my family has Mahoney Day. Mahoney Day is the day we have to fight, tooth and nail, to reserve cabins at Eugene T. Mahoney State park, the most beautiful (in my opinion) and conveniently located State Park in Nebraska. It sits on the banks of the Platte River just a stones throw from Omaha. Every three years it falls upon me and my trusty computer to reserve enough cabins and lodge rooms to accommodate up to 70 some Huebert family members. Simple right? Uhhh, wrong.

Order Up, Cowles & Williams

Williams full

Here I am, cleaning old photos off my phone again. I discovered my phone only holds 2,000 photos before it just shuts down and won’t take any more pictures. Can you believe that? Only 2,000 photos? I mean come on, I used to get at least 12 photos out of my very first camera… my Polaroid Instamatic. So anyway, delete, delete delete which means I found a bunch of stuff I never got around to posting.

Where The Wind Goes Whistling Down The Plains

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

wind blown

Uhhh, I was just singing along as I typed the above words. I can’t help it, musical junkie here. And no, I don’t live in Oklahoma, but it get’s pretty windy around these here parts as well. And plains? Well we definitely have those. But the wind, the wind has been out of control lately. It’s howling out there even as I type.

And it was howling last week as well. In fact, last Saturday morning, as I was shuffling toward my kitchen, I happened to groggily look up at my dining room window and stopped in my tracks. “Huh.” I actually said out loud, “My fence is gone.” I headed for my back door to get a closer look. Sure enough, there laid yet another section of my white, plastic fence in pieces on top of my Black Eyed Susan bush. And wait a minute, I was also missing two patio chairs. I went and stuck my head through the giant hole that used to be a fence and there they were, plastered up against the neighbors wooden fence. It was like they made a break for it through an escape hatch.

Red-Ryder-002

‘Tis the season, Christmas is right around the corner, actually a little too close around the corner for me, projects have been piling up and deadlines are looming but I was struck with an idea for a printable and just had to drop everything to put it together.

It’s Fall Y’all

It's Fall Y'all

Hey, hey, it’s Fall y’all! Can you tell that I’ve been down South recently (and watched the premiere of Atlanta Housewives)? I’m going to use that trip as my excuse for being M.I.A. for the past few weeks. We were gone for six days and then it took about six days to recover from being gone for six days (my sis worked us over getting ready for her annual Halloween blowout… more on that later). Anyway, I had to hurry to finish up some projects before I left and then had finish a few more when we got back and in the process neglected the blog. And I had been doing so well… for one solid week. So I’m going to finish up with some end of summer projects and then move on into my favorite season… Fall! The crisp air, colorful leaves (which I would prefer to continue looking at attached to their trees instead of on my lawn), football and best of all… sweater season, I love sweater season. So… on with the show because I can’t wait for you to see the Halloween bash and a certain, adorable, Little Mermaid!

Top 6 Reasons To Go To Grandmas

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

Why would two tiny Texans choose to spend their first week of summer vacation in boring, old Nebraska? That’s a good question. Maybe it was the promise of a brand new bike.
