I have been so busy this week getting ready for our winter trek to Texas that I haven't had time to post about the stamp camp I just attended. I am grateful that I was able to go, we ended up having to push out our departure by a week. I really like this particular location, it is spacious and has good lighting. Some folks said it was too cold for them. I wore layers and was just fine. In...

Last Day Of Disc Golf At BakerView Park - And What A View! | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We woke up to a sunny day and decided to go play a round of golf at Bakerview park. It was perfect weather with a great view of Mount Baker. We did end up buying four new discs after losing one in Leavenworth. Hub got a replacement Daudelus. And, after playing a few different putters, he decided to go back to the Nova (so he took his back from me) I bought us each a second Nova since we both...

We finished up our week in Leavenworth with a round of disc golf. The highlights of the round was on my approach shot for hole seven and hole nine. I had to anhyzer left handed over the corner of the tennis court fence (very tall cyclone fence). I am still very inconsistent on any special shaped shots like this. However this shot flew high and at a very steep angle were it needed to go. We saw...

I realized over the weekend that I will be in town for the big fall stamp camp event. During lunch there is a card swap. I signed up and then remembered the card swap. I have a surplus of odd sized white cardstock that I've wanted to do something with. This was the perfect opportunity to use it up! I used the stamps and dies from Stampin Up!'s Oh So Succulent bundle. I came up just short of...

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....

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...
