DIY - Adding LED Strip Lights To Our Kitchen Slide | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We made our trailer festive for Christmas. We brought in some LED lights and draped them over our kitchen slide. They have countless settings and we set them to a fun rotation of christmas colors. The next day we set them to one light and wow did we like them and decided to use them all the time...I made a short video documenting this quick DIY project that really enhances the lighting inside...

Our First Christmas On The Road! And We Survived To Tell The Tale | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We had a very quiet Christmas as you can imagine. The weather here in Texas is quite cold. Way too cold for us for sure. It will be in the 20s at night all week. Part of Christmas Day we surfed alternative places to go that are warmer. I also processed three videos and loaded them up. That means I met my weekly three video upload six days early.

One thing Hub did, and he wishes he'd...

Disc Golf At Quinlan Community Park

It has been awhile since I spent the time to gather disc golf video footage. I can understand Hub's reluctance to be filmed and to do any filming. It definitely slows our game play down, not to mention it does add some level of nerves which I think is great to content with. I enjoyed this course, but would not want it to be my "home" park because it is pretty easy. I did like that it made us...

I am back to using a planner. I took almost a year off of using one! This time however I bought one that is pretty and I plan to spend time making it even more pretty using a variety of products. I've done some research, joined a couple of planner groups and am making this a a fun way to stay organized.

Here's the general product list:

Color Challenge Wishes With Bee Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I have this collection of 6 x 6 DSP papers that my Supreme Team Leader sold me. I find that I have to go pull them out when I remember I need to use them. This project was one of those moments. I really like the mult layer looking cards with a variety of coordinating DSP. So I looked up a template to mimic and attached a pic of it below for reference. Initially I was going to use stamps from...

Let's Go To Oklahoma For My Birthday! | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

The card in the main picture I made for my Paper Pumpkin video and I left it on my desk very late / early on the 22nd. Hub, being resourceful as he is, sorted through my Paper Pumpkin creations in the morning before I got up and picked this one out. He wrote a birthday message for me on a post it note and put it inside the card. Voila, instant birthday card for almost no effort, I gotta love...

Alternatives - Paper Pumpkin December 2017 - Flora and Flutter | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I love this month's paper pumpkin kit! I think the colors are great and the designs are unique. So unique that I video'ed various ways to replicate them using supplies I have on hand. I discuss various ways to make coordinating embellishments. Then I dive into three alternative projects.

In the video I used discontinued dies and said that I would research the current product equivalents...

I enjoy crafting and creating content for the web. Unfortunately neither of these hobbies are free. I told myself and hub that I would take 2017 off, which I "mostly" did. You likely know that at the end of June I became a Stampin' Up demonstrator. I have engaged in side businesses since 1992 so I know that it takes time to grow a business. I joined SU six months before I planned to earn some...
