Sorry to hear your furry friend is having trouble with moving. Change is hard on some animals AND people. Do the best you can. Be patient. Be very loving. I'm sure you are but wanted to give you a little extra support. I had a cat that got depressed. But with him, it was after we had him fixed. We had just moved so he lost two things. His home that he was used to and now his...... Poor kitty. He did come out of it. So hang in there. Do what you would do for your child and I'm sure she will be just fine.

Sending "kitty support" and extra love,

Good thing I just found new boxers that like to walk. Gosh.....you are wearing me out with these walks.

If you're only missing the new two boxes, it's a pretty short walk. And it brings you near the 8-bit box if you're missing any of the stamps :)

One other thought...if you are planning to plant the stamp after it returns, you could always make a log book with lots of pages and a good size for a traditional plant so it can be re-used for planting.

She gets really weird with catnip, she is quite a mean drunk! She didn't come out all night so this morning I finally moved the bed and pulled her out. She is now sitting cuddled next to me. She finally got her first dose of medicine. It can take 5 days to a couple of weeks to work so we won't know if it helps for a while. Man I hope it does. One time when we moved she would find ways to crawl up IN the box springs of the hotel beds. I really hope she doesn't remember that trick. It's not the easiest place to get a cat out from.

My mom (ZTurtle) & I (along with my 11yr old- leaving the husband at home) will be in NH for the first week and some days of August. We plan on letterboxing along the way- though not sure on time and where we'll be just yet.

We'll be staying around Tilton, but going every which way (yes- we'll be hiding boxes also!)

Anyhow-- just wanted to put that out there. My mom is in Texas (but gets to visit much more than I do. I live in Montana and haven't been back to NH since my son was little. We're all super excited!!

Ithaca area question

I'm going to be in Ithaca over the weekend, and was wondering if there are any stores that sell the Color Box re-inkers? I know where to get them online, but didn't order them in time to have them for tomorrow so I thought I'd look there.

Also, any recommended, must-have boxes?

Thanks in advance!

I bowl on a summer league (it's 15 weeks) last night was week 8. We had a new person bowling with us who had bowled in the winter league I used to bowl in but on a different team.
Last night we along with the team we bowled were the last ones to leave; during the second game she started rushing everyone because she had to drive back to her house 45 minutes to an hour away. She is suppose to be joining our team (maybe). We finished at 10:15 pm one of our earlier nights (my exact words to her), She then says well we would have gotten finished earlier if you hadn't been distracting So and So by talking.

Excuse me but I don't come to bowl to be rushed through games just because someone has to drive home.. I come to have fun and some adult time. (occassionally I have to bring the kids with me--like last night which is something she hates too). Also I have bowled the previous weeks and it doesn't matter if we talk or not 10:15 or later is what time we get done.

I didn't know what to say to that because in order for me to have talked to so and so, so and so would have had to talk to me... but did she say anything to her no. I just walked away and put the baby in her car seat and got the other two and left, so and so saw me and I told her what was wrong.

I plan to tell the others if she comes back to bowl on the team they will need to replace me I don't need her type of drama and blaming me, I put up with that on the winter league for 3 yrs before finally having the team die, I won't put up with it again.

Hi Light Travelers, I am also thinking of a hybrid box for our area! I'll probably plant later this year, too many others things on the LB to do list. A lock-n-lock is totally acceptable, I've seen ammo cans, spice jars, older tupperware, disposable tupperware type, film canisters...all kinds of containers. Do you have a GPS unit? There is atleast one other boxer that geocaches besides me, in this neck of the woods. I'd be more than happy to help and I'm sure she would too.
I'll AQ mail you. :)

If anybody here uses a Cricut for making log books or ltc's, the Cricut Paper Dolls Cartridge is on sale at Micheals for $20. After buying it I was shocked to find out it cuts WAY more than what is shown on the back of the package. It would be really great for making lots of neat books and ltc's and cover's a lot of holidays like Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, Thanksgiving, Halloween and other stuff like Weddings and more. Here's a link that shows other stuff it cuts besides the dolls and their clothing.

No problem! The cartridges are normally so expensive, I refuse to buy them unless there is a GREAT sale and even then, I look at the images very critically to see if they will be versatile and usefull for letterboxing purposes. This one was just too good not to share with you guys.

I rate sporatically and I think that effects how your rating is counted *Shrug* I mean to say I only rate a box if I was really wow-ed or it really sucked - otherwise I don't rate at all.

Your ratings won't count if you rate sporadically. Check the quality of your vote her: http://www.atlasquest.com/boxes/traditional/ratingstats.html

I agree that the cartridge prices are ridiculous. Although I did see that Walmart has a line of "lite" cartridges that are $40.

Have your heard of Make the Cut Software? You can turn any image or font into a diecut using your cricut machine. No need to buy cartridges ever again. There is another one too, but the name escapes me at the moment. I am seriously considering buying it. I think it is around $70. Which is less than the full price cost of a cartridge. They have a free demo so you can play around with it before you buy it. I liked it from the little I played around with it. I looked into Cricut's Design Studio but it only works with the cartridges you already have.

Team Awesome Pants and I were talking about a low-key meet & greet for those attending GenCon this year. I have never been to the event, but I am curious. We are scouting locations outside the Con for a mini-meet. I am partial to the Indiana Historical Society along the canal. By then there may be a series of letterboxes planted as well (get busy, TAP!).

GenCon is Aug 5-8, 2010.

I have what I am sure is a REALLY stupid question. How do you use a Cricut to make LTC's? I have never used one and have seen and heard lots of talk about them. Could someone explain how they use them. Just curious, to hear your comments and see if it's something I should look into for making LTC's. Thanks :)
