VA, MD, DC folks -
is anyone else interested in trying the rubber stamp carving blocks from sweetloveqiner?

While each block is $2.99, shipping is high ($4 for one block, $10 for four blocks, $22 for ten blocks). At least sharing the postage would make it a bit more manageable.

So, here's my proposal: let me know if you're in, and for how many blocks by Monday 10/14. I'll order, and then distribute at the Reindeer Roundup event, or sooner, if I see you before then -

Thanks-
Laura/paper trail

Here's a situation that confuses me a little: this box has not been found in 3 years, the planter has not even logged on in 3 years, but it just changed status from unknown to active. How can that happen if the planter didn't update it, and nobody found it?

All I can tell you is that when a PERSON updates the status, the 'last modified' changes. That one still says August 20, 2007.

I have never paid attention to that field on the boxes that AQ changes automatically so don't know if it changes it or not.

This reminds me of a book I have! Its called American Fashionable Letter Writer. It is from 1830!!!!
It was falling part so I used my arts & crafts skills to hold it together & make jt safe to throw in my purse. Ive read it front to back. I love it!!

"Take care. If I find she is withdrawing your affection from me, that I do not come down, and pull her cap for her. As for yourself, if you were within reach of my little tongue, I would give you such a peal as should make you remember it for sometime to come."

:-O !!!!

So I am joining :)

Parking near the Four Corners of Law is hit or miss. This time of year you can probably find parking but you might have to drive around the block a couple of times. That is a great box.

If you are downtown Lime Blue is a cute box in the downtown area.

Check out Freemasons of South Carolina.

Hunley is close to the Convention Center and is an amazing carve.

There are others but those are the ones that come to mind. If you want my phone number let me know.I grew up in Charleston and still have family down there.

Let me start by saying I am not by any means an expert, an arts and crafty person, or ever much of a carver.

I started out with Master Carve and the Tan stuff. I used very non detailed things from coloring books. Funny little pictures but NO detail.

Had I tried that with the good stuff, I never would have carved the second HH and also my dear husband, Coffee Mug would never have started carving in this hobby at all. He could see that he wanted more detail immediately after seeing the texture of what I was using and went immediately to Webfoot's site.

I still say that the non artsy person in me enjoyed the little bit I did carve but quickly learned my job in this family was clue writing and planting vs carving.

His carvings are great. Thanks, Coffee Mug.

Hahahaha no no no!!!

Its from a little girl giving her older brother a verbal lashing because he is away from home & has started spending time with another young girl. Or maybe she has manifested this from jealousy. In any case, she wants his attention.
I love this book. When my daughter's kindergarten teacher became unreasonable & nonaproachable, I 'fashioned' all of my letters to her using this book. Amused me so!!! Lol!!

So....9 episodes have been recovered, bringing the number of missing episodes down to 97. The episodes that were found are:

The Enemy of the World (1967-68) - episodes 1,2,3,4,5,6 (episode 3 was already in archive)

The Web of Fear (1968) - episodes 1,2,4,5,6 (episode 1 was already in archive - episode 3 still missing)

Another serial complete - that's excellent. And with only one episode missing from The Web of Fear, it's entirely possible that they could animate the missing episode as they have done with others, thereby completing another serial.

Like carving on a block of well aged extra sharp cheddar cheese.

Mmmmmmmmm, cheese. :-P <licking lips>

That is almost as good as bacon.

Because an attempt that used to be on the box went away so the last person on the finds/attempt list is a find rather than an attempt.

Christmas Carols Openings

Hi Guys. I have 2 openings in my Christmas Carols 2013 tracker. Recycled stamps are welcome as long as you change the card up a bit from the last time you used it :)
http://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.html?gTrackerId=7274

Last year I participated in the "Something New For Christmas" LTC tracker. There were a lot of cool ideas and there was one that I just had to try. So that is what I am doing for these cards! I have waited all year to carve this stamp and make this card. I just went to 2 craft stores gathering goodies. Do you want to know what technique I'm trying out? Well, you'll have to join the tracker to see ;)
