I know IrishRef is pretty active in your area, you may want to give him a shout.

YAY! I just placed two Richland County boxes yesterday! We tried to do the boxes at Malabar Farm a few weeks back and we struck out pretty majorly. I will have to look up your boxes! :) We're going to the Ohio Bird Sanctuary this weekend for the fall festival so the kids and I will be caching and boxing around the Lexington area. Hope to see you around some time!

Maybe prep it so the whole front comes off at once?

I put extra tape on the side of the labels because that's where they ALWAYS have placed it before. Today I was prepared for it with the extra tape..guess what..they found a new place for the label today. Back at square one.. I wonder if I could put little tabs like "place tracking label here"..

I bought them, although mine are bigger than these look, and I think Kirbert got some. I haven't carved on them yet, they are VERY heavy, thus the high postage. I got a dark pink & dark purple & I'm not sure if the transfer is going to show up. We'll see. It did take a long time to get them, I think over 2 weeks.

Somehow for some reason, this made me chuckle. Makes me think of a fun time in downtown Knoxville with the stooges.

Aren't they cool? I had never heard of love tokens before and found them fascinating! They kind of remind me of pathtags!

You know, the more I look at the different carved images on these love tokens, the more I think this would make a great LTC tracker!!! Anyone interested in hosting one? I'm already hosting a couple of swaps and don't want to host any more until the spring.

Hey! You didn't mention that I was with you and that it was the first time either if us has seen a falcon!! (Which was super fun for me, not just b/c of seeing the falcon, but also to be with Pete--a knowledgable bird guy--for his first time spotting one!!) :-)

I have one that was passed down from my great grandmother to my grandmother and then me. It is a one dollar gold coin and was engraved with the dates of birth of the first two Amanda's 1871 and 1891. I have it now on a charm bracelet.

What about getting the larger blocks? 15x10 cm for $4.80 (instead of 5x5 cm)

Looks like shipping for the larger blocks is similar to the smaller blocks and per cm2 the cost is cheaper.

Thanks for all the advice! I use the printer at work specifically because it is a laser and my home printer is inkjet. Hence, why I can't use parchment paper, everyone gets nosy when someone uses non-standard paper. I think first, I am going to buy a new bottle of acetone. The one I have is from an old school project and is more than a few years old. Then, thanks to all of your help I will be experimenting with irons and wet transfers. If it dries out as fast as you say, I won't bother with the blender pen. Here in Arizona, my ink pads dry out in a matter of days...
I can't wait to get started!!! Thanks!

There was some mewing coming from the woods/hedges earlier today when I returned home. I went to explore and one of my neighbors noticed me looking. I told him that I heard a meow. Mama cat and boys have been in my apartment technically since Monday evening. Then he heard the meow. So, for the next few minutes looking for the missing addition to her litter of kittens. The baby was on the other side of the fence. Other neighbors came out. He went to get the kitten. My other neighbor received him/her from the other side of the fence. I grabbed mommy and brought her outside to see if she accepted the baby - she did!

So, the family of cats has increased by one. They've turned the tables and taken a koalacat hostage!

You didn't mention that I was with you

While searching out the "Birds of Breakheart" in Saugus on this BEAUTIFUL fall day, we
spied a Peregrine Falcon perched on the Pearce Lake island!

We would be "Me and my favorite treehugger", out for a hike on a GORGEOUS New England fall day!

and that it was the first time either if us has seen a falcon!! (Which was super fun for me, not just b/c of seeing the falcon, but also to be with Pete--a knowledgable bird guy--for his first time spotting one!!) :-)

YUP - First time ever! It was actually the different call which I heard that first peaked my interest. I'm glad we had binoculars in the BOTH backpacks, and we were lucky that it stayed perched for so long that we could get a great ID on it. I'm THRILLED that you were there with me to see it!!! ;o)
