Umm... you are the creator of the game. You put it in the 2013 deck that I have and you have. It doesn't get any more official than the creator putting it in the deck!!! It IS official!! It IS!!!

And NOW it's in the 2014 deck making it double official!! HA!! :D

I really like that card.

Send it east. We haven't had any snow near Binghamton either.

Her grandpa brought her over with some of her belongings. She can't stay with her grandparents because so many of her cousins are staying there and there would be no peace or place for her.

I was sitting around, avoiding being productive, and I made a 3/8th inch unicorn sillouette, a 5/8th" rainbow, and a little less than an inch head. Lol. I guess I'm joining the swap. I'm curious. How small is micro in the case of those stamps?

I love snow. I am walking distance to everything in Endwell and my kids love it. You are right though, we don't need it.

I just turned on the Weather channel. I went to school in Fredonia in 1997-1998. Watching this makes me glad that it was an almost snowless year on lake Erie. :) They got more snow in Binghamton that year.

Thanks. Actually, I'm going to have a lot of these. But not all will have suede unless I decide to go buy some more. I have lots of purple cardstock laying around.

How many times do you change signatures stamps?

i've changed mine 3 times in 4 years. granted, one of those was because i lost the original one. However, i think it's important to have your sig stamp reflect yourself and your carving ability. that improves over time.

i like the idea of your name, connected with the P, down two sides of the stamp. Perhaps with an eyeball looking through a lens in the middle? i'm not quite sure how that would work.

Thanks to all who have offered to help. It's come to my attention that there are differences between how finds are numbered in my logbook vs. how you see them when you search. Because of this, could you please reference the name of the box? I'm looking for images from boxes I have found with finds dated 9/5/12 - present. Thanks so much, and I'm so sorry for this added wrinkle.

Always good to take a realistic/practical perspective when you're dealing with these sorts of things, especially in the case of a puzzle event. Something else to consider: when you're forcing people to pay attention to every teensy detail to solve puzzles, sometimes you can even trick them into thinking that *everything* is a puzzle, and then they start paying better attention to all your non-puzzle details. ;-)
Box suggestions - drive bys & indoors

Hello All,
We are going to be visiting family and friends between Woolrich and Newark, probably driving on the 295, the 95… (up and down, NJ & PA, so to speak). Boxing time is very limited, since this is a 'visiting people' trip, but we would like to get a few boxes in if possible. The only boxing things we are taking is our log book, sig stamps, & a few ink colors. We hope to return in the Spring or Summer and actually hit some trails, but for now, I'll just be glad if we don't freeze!

So far, I have found one box (Kenya's Calling, in Princeton) which seems like it would fit the bill.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!

So I just had a teen girl move in who is ill and life is rough at home. Don't know how long she will be here, however, she is a bit depressed and the situation is really hard on her. If you would like to send her a bit of love I'd appreciate it. Last year I bought her 2 frames that hold ATCs - she got sick and never made any to put in it. If you would like to send her a LTC that would be great. She has 2 frames each hold 40 one is perpendicular and the other is horizontal.

Just send to my address but write c/o Schyler on it . Also please make any note very generic - like feel better soon.

This is my prior post

I just need to come over to your house! ;). Soak up your creative juices!
I did not do well on my own yesterday.... Granted I was watching a webinar on compositing photographs while I was trying to be creative.
Note: watercolors do not do well with plastic stencils.
I did happen to go back to michaels today and got the amethyst spray to go with the mint. So back to square one. Now what? I tried to look up tutorials but the Heidi swapp website was not acting right and even got the mcaffee warning asking me if I wanted to go there. I will have to look up the tutorials you mentioned and maybe they will help. I just need help getting started, to have an idea in mind first, then I can soar!
So I have that stencil and I got an onion bag wich has a cool texture too.
Anyway...

If there are interesting boxes along the 276, 476, 202 etc, we could also drive along those routes as we make our way to Woolrich (crossing to the NJ side from Philly or Chester).

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

MWAH-HAH-HAH!!!

Makes me think of when John Lennon wrote I Am The Walrus, in part to mess with a former teacher of his whe he heard was teaching Beatles lyrics as literature. And I think there are some indications that they got wind of the "Paul is Dead" rumors and intentionally fed the fire.

The ones that are gone are finds dated 9/5/12...

Actually this is fun... kinda a mystery hunt! I only have one image on your find list, our Virginia Hiker, and its from May of 2012, so you don't need it.

I think you'll get them all replaced, AQ boxers are good people.
