Day Nine - A Lovely Drive To Tennessee

Publish Date:

Our drive along the east side of the Ozarks was a little bit more hilly, twisty and windy. So, I warned Hub to expect most of our trek the next day to be a repeat. I was wrong with that assessment. We were so far east that our drive started out steep and twisty but quickly turned into rolling hills. It is so beautiful in Arkansas, something I was not expecting.

There are LOTS of chicken...

The second purple project I want to share is a purple on purple A2 sized card. First the Gorgeous Grape base was embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing folder.

The focal is created from two layers of Gorgeous Grape, starting with the mat and then arranging cut up punched parts from the Darling Label punch.

Layered hand colored Highland Heather cardstock and striped Gorgeous...

The next two projects I have to share are purple. I love purple!

This first one uses the puzzle stamp and die set "Love You To Pieces Clear Bundle". The project uses Gorgeous Grape and Heather Highland cardstock and ink. The only color comes from the Whisper White sentiment puzzle pieces, the pearlized doily and the two pearls. The stamped hearts added along the bottom make a perfect...

We drove back up to I40, A pleasant highway with lush mowed green grass on wither side. Today there was zero wind, we were glad for that! The highway is surrounded by either farmland or large deciduous trees. We stayed here for most of the drive.

Today was our day to encounter traffic! I am surprised at how many days in a row we had with no slow downs to speak of. Unfortunately the...

This is a pretty straight forward card. I like all of the busy-ness going on with it. It has lots of layers and embellishments. The sentiment and decorative stamping behind the sentiment is from the "Detailed With Love" stamp set. The DSP is Love What You Do and the seed beads are Tranquil Textures Sprinkles.

I already posted our tail light fix so will not discuss it here.

First let me talk about how little sleep we got. It was MUGGY! It stayed in the 70s through the night and we kept our downstairs AC on. We've confirmed that the low will be 76 tonight so we will be sure to turn on the bedroom AC. 

Ok, back to our drive. Just south of Newton I did a double take. Hub glanced over and...

When we setup camp in Kansas I noticed our right tail light cover was missing on the fifth wheel. We'd checked our lights in the am, so it had parted ways with us at some point between Nebraska and Kansas. We'd already designated a day of rest while in Kansas to shop and do laundry, so Hub added this to our shopping list. We already had clear and black Gorilla tape on hand.

The top of...

Day Five And Six - Resting Up In Kansas | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We made it to Kansas yesterday and Hub opted for us to go shopping right away so we could spend the next day "resting". I quote resting because it meant we had the pleasure to clean five loads of laundry. We took turns and I wrote articles in between. I noticed we lost the red cover on our right taillight, bummer... I've called the trailer manufacturer and have instructions on how to get a...

I am making the big trek from Washington state, down to the Floriday keys and back up to Orlando for OnStage. I have saved a selection of cards to share as I will have no time to bring out the crafting supplies but I will have time to write while we are driving. This card was from a Stamp A Stack event I attended in July. It was this very card that convinced me to purchase the die set. I can...

Today's short video is a funny one. We'd camped at Powder River Campground, up at the top of Wyoming, just east of the middle of it. Next to us was a custom fifth wheel with full body paint and a matching newer Ford dually. Guess who we saw in the morning as we prepped to leave, that same rig had parked one row behind us! There's no mistaking that it was the same rig. 

Then, Hub was...
