Anyway, I'd love to hear some of your ideas for creating my new signature.

It saves lots of time to put one's city and state on the signature stamp too.

Where do you see your trailname on your stamp?
Around the panda, on the panda's jumper (British sweater), beneath the panda (kinda like a pedestal)?

I'm looking to create a new, hopefully permanent, signature stamp but my creativity is just not there. [...] I have a thing for pandas so I'd love if I could include one in my design, and maybe my trailname if I'm feeling ambitious.

When I read that first line that I copied above, I looked at your trail name and thought of someone parachuting. Then when I got to the other line I thought that it could be a parachuting panda. Put your trail name on the parachute and your home town below the panda. If you city and state have a common letter then you can cross them below, like the "X" for the landing zone.

I love this idea, I've never been parachuting - the thought terrifies me. Buddy used to be a horse that I rode.

Would you rather have a horse jumping? ;-)

Come up with an idea and someone will carve it for you. Or you could carve it from an image that someone comes up with. Just let us know on this group and someone will pick up the challenge you give us.

I would love for someone to design a stamp for me! Unfortunately I can't pay anyone to do it at this time but if someone is willing to design for free I would be forever grateful!

Perhaps a horse jumping over my trailname and location? Kinda like this horse (https://img0.etsystatic.com/070/0/9830689/il_214x170.826174786_hgd7.jpg)? I'm an okay carver but I'd like to challenge myself to carve my own signature stamp, even if it takes me many tries!

Parachuting Pandas would also be really cool too!

You're welcome! Do you need a specific size? I can email you a .PDF with various sizes so you can figure out what's comfortable to carve.

Please join me in supporting the 12th Annual 5k for Epilepsy that will be held nationwide on Saturday, March 25, 2017.

Each year thousands of families find themselves facing uncertainty when their loved ones suddenly experience seizures and epilepy-associated challenges. My husband Tom has had epilepsy since he was 12 and two years ago it turned our lives upside down until he was able to get it controlled again. This year he will be walking in the Arizona walk and we would like to ask you to help us raise awareness and funds to support the Epilepsy Foundation. Any amount would be greatly appreciated, even $1.00 would help him reach his goal. I will be creating a special stamp for this event and will send it to anyone who donates and sends me their mailing address.

Thank you for your support,

Shameless but Humble Request For Help

Tex, "the third lost boy", has come down with a sudden, intense, and yet undiagnosed illness. We've pretty much drained our savings account over these past 3 weeks in an ongoing effort to pay for his vet bills, treatments, and tests. These are our hands (and paws) extended out in need, with the hope that kind and caring friends and angels will help us to afford the treatments and medications necessary to pay for Tex's veterinary bills and care until he can make a full recovery.

His full story is at the link below.

Please help in any way you can:

And if you can't donate, please share!

With all of our love, Silvio & Eri

We put our Dory to sleep last month when we decided it was neither humane or financially responsible to extend his time beyond his 19+ years. I would love to send you something in his memory. Do you have PayPal? Laurie

Did the vet look for intestinal parasites? We had a very young cat waste away from some unknown parasite. She outright refused to eat or drink.

Muggle saves stamp

My faith in muggles is restored! While out hunting for a Christmas tree, a muggle family came across one of my letterboxes. The box was destroyed, the stamp and logbook just sitting there. He took the time and effort to track me down (this is why you put a "Congrats! You've found a letterbox! card in the box) and arranged to return the stamp and logbook to me.

Thankfully the logbook and stamp are in perfect condition, which was shocking due to the amount of snow the area it was planted in gets.

I wish there were more muggles like this man and his family! Thank you, Muggle!

I had one of my letterbox/geocache boxes found by a similar muggle. It was planted next to a golf course and hidden very well (because it had gone missing where it had been before). A man and his son were searching for golf balls (in the park next to the golf course) when they found my box.

I had put my email address in the logbook so he contacted me about it. I thanked him for contating me, explained about geocaching (since that was the most frequent finders) and that the box should be returned to where it was found. He did so, and I checked on it a few days later.

There are plenty of good muggles out there, just not enough.

Yup! Happened to me too a couple years ago. Muggle, probably a NOXER, who was on vacation stumbled upon one of my boxes just laying around on the ground. She knew exactly what it was and notified her letterboxing relative in another state and after a whole lot of money in postage and a couple months it was back in my hands safe and sound.

I agree completely. She has provided great advice and know-how to my daughters (GF4LIFE and SoccerGirl02) and I, by allowing newbies to participate in her single postals. Big thanks to Woodshed from my girls and I. We are looking forward to receiving the next Postal from her.

Totally agree! She's awesome! And super extra bonus - I got to meet her in person when she traveled all the way to NC for the Disney event! Plus her sidekick, Mr. Woodshed! She too introduced me to the world of postals.

Hey Letterbox family,

I am need help with a project with my classroom. I am trying to finish up a donorschoose project before the school ends. My project is for 6 wobble stools for my active students. These have been proven to help kids learn. Can you help me? Anything will get us closer to our finish line.

Many times you ask but no one helps but I know my letterboxing family won't let me down. :)

Thank You in advance!

My students need 6 wobble stools for their classroom. Could you help? #donorschoose #flexseating #kindness #ripple #classrooms #donate Check out my classroom on @DonorsChoose! I'd love your help to bring my project to life: https://donorschoo.se/e/pU25bf3QkM

I SO excited to let you know about a wonderful fundraiser TEAM TLM is hosting NOW through August 29th: PAMPERED CHEF !!!

https://pamperedchef.com/party/ToniCancerFundraiser

25% of all sales over $650 will be donated to the American Cancer Society for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. You'll note on the link above that it says 15%. My amazing consultant Yvonne is personally donating the additional 10%!!

You can order ANYTHING in the ENTIRE catalog. You all know how much I love Pampered Chef items. This is the perfect time to get those gadgets you've been wanting, update your cookware, or try some of their delicious food items. Who couldn't use a new cutting board or paring knife?? Looking for recommendations - just ask! They have 76 items UNDER $10 - LOL I think I own and love all of them!

Christmas will be here before you know it - get some of your shopping done early. Great quick gift idea: Season's Best cookbook + Mini Nylon Serving Spatula + ribbon! Maybe add a yummy Seasoning Mix. Pampered Chef makes the best wedding or anniversary presents, too.

Really stuck on what to buy - I HIGHLY recommend the Garlic Infused Canola Oil!! Buy 2 bottles - once you try it, you'll be using it all the time.

Lastly - PLEASE share this link with all of your friends, family, and co-workers and post on your facebook page. It would be very much appreciated and helpful. The great thing is that anyone anywhere can shop via my link to help our effort.

Thank you again. Every dollar counts.

If you like garlic, the Garlic Peeler & Slicer Set is a must-have. Perfect, paper thin slices every time. And the Carnitas seasoning on a pork picnic roast simmering in the slow cooker will drive you insane...
