Beautiful Fall Colors At Leavenworth RV Campground | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

After staying at fifteen different Thousand Trails resorts we finally have a clear favorite... Leavenworth RV Campground. It could be the time of year, which is fall and the colors here are spectacular. It is definitely the disc golf course even though we both threw our favorite drivers into the lake and could not recover them. It is so quiet here you can hear a pin drop which is also lovely....

Fall Colors In Leavenworth | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

My mom just asked me this today. I am sure anyone who is not retired wonders what do retired people do to fill their day, especially if they travel full time. Don't they get bored?

Since we move to a new area every three weeks, we reserve part of our day to check out where we are staying. It might be a walk or hike on trails in our campground. If there is disc golf or a field nearby we...

Just Sitting Here Thinking Of You Cat Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

For the Creative Cat Crew Color Challenge #26, I used a new stamp set! I bought this set with Copic coloring in mind. It does NOT come with matching dies but I knew that the pillows would be easy to fussy cut and I would be using the cat since I am a cat person and it didn't look to bad to fussy cut. I list the Copic colors below and chose to mat with Real Red and Marina Mist on Whisper White...

I decided that I had PLENTY of cards on hand so to celebrate World Card Making Day, I pulled out cheerful cards to mail to my cardmaking peeps! I then spent alot of time on the envelopes as I like to do. I already forwarned Hub last night that I was going to be busy all morning. He respected my schedule and at 3pm we drove to the tiny town of Plain, Wa and I left my cards in the little silver...

DH Makes A Statement | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I've been blogging our travels since March of this year. Finally just yesterday DH says, I don't like that name. Then this morning my mom was talking about how confusing it is to her to read various blogs with their insider acronyms and names which prevents her from enjoying the storyline. She too doesn't like DH because it is not a term she is used to.

For example she belongs to an...

Purple And Orange Dragonfly Floral Friend Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I wanted to create a project outside of my comfort zone in color, paper and card style. I challenged myself to start with a dark card base, fold the front down, I used Copic X-press IT for the floral image and then used vellum for the sentiment, leaves and dragonfly.

I also used metallic inks on the dark grey base in silver and copper. I wanted the floral image to float over the folded...

Fall Colors Are Beautiful In Washington! | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Yesterday was moving day! For many, many years I had travelled the first weekend in October to Wenatchee for the end of the season reining show. I always loved the drive because the fall colors were so beautiful that time of year. It has been 5 years now since I made that trip and we drove it yesterday to our temporary housing as we finish preparation for our journey to Texas. Since we just...

And This Is Why You MUST Turn Off Your Water When You Leave | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Ok folks, we've been diligently turning off our water since we moved into our trailer. On Monday we left in the AM and turned the water off. One thing was different however, DH had moved our scale from between the sink/shower to between the wall/toilet. It is quite heavy. Upon our return that afternoon I turned the water back on.

We had been grocery shopping and were busy bringing in...

Fall Tree Thinking Of You Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I made this project after creating a different card using Stampin' Up!'s A Sheltering Tree. The first one was in summer colors so I thought I should make one in fall colors. Colors used were: Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. I like the look of the horizontal popped up area for the tree leaves. I stamped off the cajun craze for the lighter leaves. This was a very quick card to make and I like...
