AWESOME CLUE !!!

I tried to take my visiting family to Southside Park today, but the playground is being re done, because of the recent flooding..... and was all roped off.
We ended up at the JAYCEE park up the road.

6 DAYS FROM TODAY !!!

Ummm... I seem to recall you completely revised one of my clues since the story really wasn't particularly creatively written....

But I'm trying to get better!

Ummm. . .

only because you ASKED me to. Not because i looked at them and said, "wow, these clues are sucky and boring!" LOL. i don't usually go around rewriting clues just because, silly ;-).

And i think these new ones were really great! Whoo hoo hoo hoo!!!

I seem to recall the asking being prompted by some feedback. But in any case, I am interested in making more creative clues. My past clues are mostly just directions. I'm trying to do something different with the clues with each new box I plant now. :)

And i'm working really hard at way more creative containers, logbooks, stamps and clues. All because of the same kind of feedback. That said basically the reason my boxes didn't get 5's is because they sucked. LOL. Because they did.

. . . and MAN! maybe i don't want to be planting any more boxes. These things take a helluva lot of TIME.

When you opt to focus on quality instead of quantity the time it takes to make one box definitely increases. But after over 200 plants (not including all the donations), I think I've done quite enough quantity! :)

Plus I like to push myself to try new things, and learning to write creative clues is probably the biggest challenge I've had so far! I've been working on it for over a year with some really great clue writers and don't have much to show for it. But I'm slowly changing that...

Tell me about it! I've now been carving a certain series for over a year--that's just the carves. Not boxes, not pouches, they're not mounted, no logbooks have been made--just the stamps. And not all of them--13 are carved, with four to go--and the last two will be the hardest (which is why they're last).

I TOLD you people to stop me before I did another long series!

Oh yes, please proceed on, you can do it, you can do it, 4 more to go. Just want to give you some support although you certainly don't need it. :)

Better not to do a long series because you know that the bar has now been raised for you and nice handmade logbooks and box constructions are now required. Once you start doing that stuff, you can't go back! ;)

The ones I just had planted in Maine had an urban style box construction with a code on it. You got a stamp out of that box but then solved the code off it to get another box. I really need to do some of those around here. But they do take some time.

Handmade logbooks, yes. Box constructions--no! Too tasty for Georgia critters!
