On Stage celebration event in November. I am so excited! It helps...

September 2018 Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop - Holiday Catalog | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Welcome to the September Stamp 'N Hop blog hop. My name is Tracy Marie and I just spent an amazing four nights at a craft retreat where I was able to stamp to my heart's content. One major project that I completed was a set of cards for a holiday catalog swap. It ended up being perfectly timed for me to use them for this hop as well since our theme for the hop is also the holiday catalog. ...

Welcome to the June Colour Combo hop. My name is Tracy Marie and I am working on a variety of projects while at a crafting retreat. This is one of the rare times I am not with my husband traveling in our fifth wheel and though we love each other's company, I had a great time catching up with my crafting buddies who I no longer see very often.

I did not have to spend alot of time...

Waterfront Cards | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I had so much fun at my craft retreat. This time I had large card making projects planned. One project was to come up with a series of basic cards for beginning card makers. From what I was told these folks have never made a card before. So I researched a good first stamp set and then created 10 very basic beginner cards from them making sure to cover alot of different card types. I then...

Whew, I have only 10 minutes to get this article posted. I am at our fall retreat and the Creative Cat Crew color challenge owner is sitting here right next to me. I have my headphones on so I don't get distracted!

This project uses a few holiday catalog items I just received as well as items I borrowed (the cute deer).

My team leader Libby made a suggestion before I cut the...

CSI - Camping, Stamping & Investigating - Solving an RV Campground Mystery

Hub and I often walk through our campground to get all of our fitness steps in. We enjoy the flora and fauna and like to see everyone's RVs. A few days back as we started our walk, we were mystified by a dark line of "something" that an RV had left on the road. We followed the trail to the destination. It was a huge bus that we have seen here before. 

Many RVers live in the Thousand...

Sneak Peek - Holiday Catalog - Kindness Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

One of the challenges of travelling full time in an RV is receiving packages. Many campgrounds do not accept camper packages unless medication or an RV part. So, when I placed my pre-order for the holiday catalog on 8/1, I knew I would not be picking it up until 8/30. However, after we evacuated from Leavenworth because of a fire nearby, we were within an hour of my in-laws. I didn't count on...
