Yes, indeed congrats to them!!!

I just baked a big ol' "Humble" Pie. Maybe I should I use the "Silver" when it gets served?

Possibly some "crow" to eat for main course?

All in all... "well done" to the team!! (just cant seem to get away from those cooking terms.) LOL

Quote The Marvy blue clever lever punch 2" opening makes perfect circles for logbooks. The pink punch fits exactly inside but is a little tight.
With a Micheals or Joanns coupon and they are only $6.

We us the pink Marvy 2 1/2 inch punch. It's a snug fit, but it gives maximum stamping area for the small box. You can get it at AC Moore with the on-line 40 % off coupon. Both punches are excellent!

But I guess practice makes perfect.


In this case it really does. The biggest lesson I've learned from carving is that the way to make a good stamp is to take your sweet time. Whenever I try to get around that I make a mistake.

That and a REALLY GOOD magnifier help a lot. My current magnifier was a gift from a veteran who has poor eye sight. He was able to get a "machine" from the V.A. that enlarged print that's about this size to letters that take up an entire TV screen. Stick a piece of rubber under there and you can carve just about anything.

trying to letterbox with a beanie with a propeller would not be very stealthy either......


Bumbleboo, the smallest member of the Sunnyside clan, has one of these. I'm not sure if he's ever boxed in it though, but I think it would be great for stealth. Whenever he wears it everyone is so busy fawning over him that I could probably grow a second head and they would not notice!

Mind you, the lines not being exposed to the elements may also mean less maintenance needs to be done!


At the same time, it's got to be more difficult to figure out where the origins of problems are. We usually lose internet when it rains here....some squirrel probably chewed a hole in the line....we can't even get the telephone company to come out and fix that when our lines are above ground. I'd hate to think of how annoying it would be to get them to fix occasional problems that would result from ants and the like.

Mother of Five
just4bees
Hornicorn
Moon Flower
Mumma and Bunny Boy
sunmoonandstars
Poodle Dudes

And, just four requests for Snake Problem right?

Geometry Junkie
alamocito
Mother of Five
kmbaker

I did send out an email to several of you this morning about personalization for your Nursing Mom LTC. Please know that I have a very limited supply of the pink and blue so they will be given out on a first come basis. ;)

I'm experimenting with one of my letterboxes - container is a lock n lock, logbook isn't in a baggie.


I recall someone mentioning that they had issues with people putting the LnL lids on upside-down so the seal was the wrong way. I guess in those situations the ziploc is your only hope of protection; but how frequently would that happen? I would think most people know how to put lids on containers! hehehe!


I wouldn't ... I started just using LnLs without baggies. 4 times total (1 was 2 times on 1 box) someone put the stuff back together wrong and the logbook got wet. I KNOW you are gonna say I did not put those 3 boxes in dry spots. But ...

ONE of those times it was just not put back together at all. It was sitting out in the open in a sunken spot and was wet.

The 2 time loser box was sitting on a big flat rock in a tree trunk with a rock on top of it to put it above water ... just in case and to make it higher in the tree to hide it. When I found it after damage reports, both times, the rocks were in front of the box. The clues indicated that the box was sitting ON the rock and to please put it back ON the rock.

The other damage was a poor plant in that it was a spot that got soaked when it rained. If the LnL had been put together right, it would have been fine. If I had put in baggies, it might have been fine too.

I am back to baggies inside the LnL.

Of course in this case, zippy bags wouldn't help anyway. But I hear you in the other situations; this is why I haven't followed through on the experiment yet! It's sad when people don't "care for your gift" like you hope they will... I've been fortuate so far, but then I only have 2 boxes planted. (I am off to plant two more today! Yippee!)
