Snow Day!

I have been here at the Staunton KOA campground one week and I have seen beautiful sunny days, 5 inches of snow, and mud!  I can’t imagine what the next 8 months will be like!  Let me share some of the photos with you: The good news was that I got some stamping done!  I made about 30 of these cards – to give to my top selling team members… Read More »

Exciting Day – New Mattress!

Most RVs come with a so-so mattress. Well, I decided that I have spent way too many hours on a so-so mattress and I deserve an amazing mattress!  So this week, I went and bought one! I didn’t think that I would like a memory foam because I heard that they hold in heat and I like to sleep on the cool side.  And I learned that an air-based mattress… Read More »

Cooking in an RV

I’m going to a party tomorrow night and wanted to take some queso dip and cranberry squares, plus some holiday Ritz crackers for a treat package.  Cooking that many things at once is a challenge, but as long as I clean up after myself and am careful, it can get done! Everything is ready to take to the party – I will try to remember to take pictures at the… Read More »

Sewing in an RV

When I bought my RV, I figured out where I wanted to do my paper crafting, but wasn’t all that sure on where I would sew.  And then I needed to figure it out fast.  I offered to make some tote bags that the ladies from Alamo Craft Company would fill with toiletries, gifts, etc, for a local Battered Women’s Shelter.  So  this past weekend, I got everything I would… Read More »

Status Update

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while – I am still trying to get used to my new lifestyle.  I include a little update in my newsletters, but just in case you don’t subscribe (why not???), I wanted to catch you up a bit. I started out at Admiralty RV Resort in San Antonio because the location was close to my handyman who helped me with some modifications to my… Read More »

The RV Crafting Studio Revealed

As I explained in previous posts, I converted the bunkhouse of my new fifth wheel RV into a crafting space.  I officially moved into the RV (I call it my tiny house) about a week ago, and have pretty much organized the space for working.  Someday I will tidy up more and take more pictures, but I thought you might like to see how you can organize your crafting, stamping,… Read More »

Almost moved in!

After making my craft studio mods and spending hours thinning out my belongings, I am almost ready to move in full-time!  The RV had to go into the shop this week to fix some little problems but it came home last night and I am about ready to actually sleep there!  And craft there, too!  Most of my supplies are already over there and my fingers are getting itchy to… Read More »

And Progress Continues….

I haven’t been at the RV much since my last post.  I did take some stuff from the bathroom and bedroom over and I put the DVD media shelf together.  Other than that, I have spent time at the house with my business (did some stamping and got ready for my team meeting) and I also went through my *stuff* one more time.  The first time I did a purge,… Read More »

RV Renovation – Day 2

Second day.  I am so tired.  Why am I doing this?  I know me and I know I must have a good reason, so let’s keep going! Yesterday was pulling apart.  Today is about putting together. The crafting space.  The desk used to be the bunk.  It is held up by some MDF panels and the bunk brackets.  The curtain rods have a 2-1/2″ return which makes them stick out… Read More »

RV Renovation – Day 1

The RV finally made it to San Antonio (though the auto-leveler is not working), but it is time to start turning that bunkhouse into a studio.  I must admit that it was scary pulling apart a brand new unit!! First up: remove the closet.  A closet seems like a good idea to have in a craft room, but I am going to put DVD shelving here instead and it is… Read More »

Moving my new RV – Or maybe Not!

Yesterday was supposed to be a big day but it didn’t go the way I had intended. I drove to Buda Texas, where Crestview RV Sales has been kind enough to let me leave my fifth wheel for a while.  The plan was to do the final walk-through to see how everything worked and then to have my new friends, Sheila and Roger tow it back to the Admiralty RV… Read More »

Buy RV: Check!

I am one step closer to my dream! Last week, I drove up to Buda, Texas and signed the paperwork on my brand new, 2015 Open Range 427BHS bunkouse fifth wheel! I took my friend and handyman with me so that we could do some measurements and figure out how to go about the renovations that I wanted to do. Here, I will show you the “before” pictures, and next… Read More »

Convection/Microwave Oven?

I have been doing a lot of research lately on things I never thought of before.  One of them is to find the best way to cook in the RV.  Alot of people don’t use their ovens because they run off propane and no one wants to run out of propane, right?  One option is to use a combination microwave and convection oven.  While surfing the web, I came across… Read More »
