My Planner - Organization Made Pretty | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

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:

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...

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...

Christmas Cards Are In The Mail! | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I am proud that I set a deadline for finishing Christmas cards and that I was able to finish on time. I would say a weakness of mine is an inability to focus on repetitive tasks. I make my Christmas cards throughout the year and I make all sorts of them so by the time I have to mail them I don't have the last minute rush to make any.

You would think that by making them throughout the...

Sunset At Lake Tawakoni Thousand Trails | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I shared a sunrise video awhile back. So, I have been looking out for a beautiful sunset to share. Hub remarked on the peachy fire of the sunset the other night so I grabbed my cell and videoed the very short walk to the lake with that fiery peach sun. This is a very beautiful campground so I am glad to have taken the opportunity to film it. Ironically as this video was uploading late last...

Our Campground Memberships Experience Part 3 | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Here is the detailed tips and tricks part of the Thousand Trails membership topic. I hope this is helpful for folks considering a membership! I am happy that I broke this topic into three segments. It allowed me to go a little long so I could demo the Thousand Trails website which has some great information available if you know where to look. Video length 16 min 28 sec.

Lake Tawakoni Thousand Trails Is An Idyllic Spot | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We moved a couple of days ago. It is hard to believe how fast time flies! We love it here. The huge gaps between neighbors, our close proximity to the lake, which we can both see from the dining room windows, and the scampering squirrels make this a lovely site. The weather is more mild, no wind and not as warm. This property is 380 acres and our loop is far from the rest of the park's RV...

Thousand Trails Membership Cost Discussion | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

This is part two of my Thousand Trails membership discussion. I analyse our cost to usage ratio, our ROI and speculate on our cost for 2018 and 2019. If you've wondered whether there is any sales pressure after you've bought a membership, there is. I talk about those two meetings and explain how I worked the time to my advantage. Part three will finish up the Thousand Trails discussion by...
