Hopefully I'll get to grab a box or two. Not sure where I'm heading though.

No boxing for me tomorrow--it's Ian's last high school band competition. I'm proud of him, but boy, this senior year thing is a bittersweet time!

Someone left a black backpack with an Old Navy grey fleece at Poison Oaks. Let me know if it is yours.

i'm sad there's lost belongings BUT -

WHAT A GREAT TIME!!

LOADS of great boxes, wonderful food (and hot chocolate that smelled ghoulishly good!), happy companions (Ben, you're a great TALL box collector). What more could anyone ask of an event??? karmakat and peepstone, you did a phenomenal job of our Inky Something!! ;-)

And Big Red: your home is beautiful, your daughter is lovely, and boxing with you is truly a blessing! Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Also, not our backpack but kudzu goes out to karmakat, big red and peepstone for this event. OOPS, make that kudos to(sorry but this is the south). Thank you to big red for allowing us to traipse all over your property and home. Thanks to peepstone for organizing some crazy boxers into a somewhat cohesive unit. And big thanks to karmakat for the event, the creative way the clues were done and being charming enough to talk big red into letting crazy boxers traipse all over her property. JOBS WELL DONE!! Thanks to the little folk who put up with us and I hope someone told the zombie to come in out of the cold and enjoy some hot chocolate. Many Thanks again!

I didn't leave a backpack, but I did leave my chair out on the porch. I appreciate so much the hospitality and work that goes into an event like this.

Ditto to what has already been said!!! Thanks for a great event -- my last and SEVENTEENTH of 2014 -- unless someone else sneaks one in before New Year's.

Thanks to the Mamas, B3 (I didn't get your exchange!) and GAPackrats for letting me tag along with them. It was FUN!

BTW, I made it home safely!

Thanks for letting us now you got home safely, Colorful.
B3 and I had a wonderful day & evening. Thanks to everyone who boxed with us yesterday- Bugfood Babe, Phantom Finder and Mountains of Miles during the afternoon and Tigs, Eeyore, Colorful in the evening. 'Tall' Ben is laughing at the posts above and is ready to go tromping though the woods again. (especially if he's with people who think he's tall!!)
I thanked Red, Peep and Karma for their hospitality but I completely forgot to thank Artemis for the hot chocolate- the house smelled SOOO good when we got done and the hot chocolate was yummy! I can get the chair from Red and get it to GaCandygirl if y'all need me to be a go between.

Jingle Boxing?

Is anyone doing it this year? If not, could we do what I think Isabeau mentioned last year - we pick an area and all plant Christmasy stamps by a certain date and then hunt them in groups based on availability throughout December?

Well, if we do that, it would be good if we picked an area that is more or less central to most of us (even us west side folks) and that is not completely covered over with boxes already. Any ideas?

Another version of this could be that we all plant in our respective areas by a certain date and use the prefix Jingle Boxing 2014 on our boxes?

Here's what I have for area ideas if we do the all plant in one place thing -

Alpharetta
Dunwoody
John's Creek
Norcross
Sandy Springs
Smyrna

Um. . . don't know yet. It depends on weather, and driving conditions and what's going on on the weekends. Probably mid-December (she says without consulting her sister at all) or after Christmas. If it's after Christmas, i may plant this week before i leave the state. . .
