Welcome to the October 2018 Colour Combo blog hop! I am currently in Orlando Florida, having had to alter our travel plans at the last minute due to hurricane Michael. We just barely made it down through Tallahassee this morning, as we drove down we saw a huge contingent of service vehicles heading back to the panhandle to help out after the storm goes through. I saw caravans of utilities...

When Hub said hey is that snow up there? Little did we know how much snow we would find around that hill. I had to video it to share. It was totally unexpected, but luckily a short while later we had dropped down out of it /whew!

We saw alot of beautiful countryside, a picturesque white mausoleam surrounded by a large cemetary.  Pronghorn, horses, cattle and sheep.

We are quickly...

How We Plan Our RV Trips | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I have spent over 15 years traveling in some sort of an RV. RV travel requires planning ahead. There are special considerations to take into account when you are over 40 feet long.  I have created a two part video series walking through how I use Google Maps to map out every leg of my RV trip. I demonstrate my camping membership tools to guide me in making good campground choices, I even show...

Year Two Full Time RV Experience - Update | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I created a new presentation documenting our experience with full time RV living. We had an interruption in our travels that delayed this update. We are now finishing up 13 months on the road so I packed this with everything I thought would be of interest for those planning on RVing part time or full time. 

The video ended up being a bit longer than I like but I had alot of details to...

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...

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...

Video - Using The Brother Scan N Cut 2 CM350 To Cut Out Stampin' Up! Stamps

I got my new catalog stamp sets in May during the pre-order and I managed to get one round of electronic fussy cuts made before we hit the road.

Today I finally pulled out the Brother to cut out stamps from Calligraphy Essentials, Lemon Zest and Fabulous Flamingo. I already have cut outs stashed from In Every Season, Bird Banter, Amazing Congratulations and Rooted In Nature.

Video - Two Bathroom Updates For Our Fifth Wheel

Hub had two changes to make in our Bathoom. First, he disliked the toilet roll holder that came with the RV, thank goodness they did not install it. I think they knew how lame it was. Once he cut the hole in the side of the cabinetry, he could more easily fix the pluming leak.

Now granted he could have just turned the black knob on the pex and called it done, but he wanted to have...
