Taloola just introduced this to my world this week, but I've found quite a few boxes in the Reynoldsburg area I'm going to hunt down as soon as I make my stamp!

Anyone else?

Oh my gosh!  That is so cool!  I am from seattle, washington and the outdoors was a big part of my life there.  I moved to columbus in november and have since started school at ccad, so i have had no time to do anything but school.  However, i really want to get out here and exlplore what you have before i move back to the great northwest in a few years. 

I checked out this website and it sounds awesome.  I sent the info to some of my friends back in washington so they can find the ones there, and i think i am going to try to find some here this summer.  It should be a good way for me to explore and learn the area.

Such a cool idea!

Awesome!

Wow, I admire you for tackling CCAD.  One of my friends went there and she was in the same boat as you, not much time to do anything but school (not even sleep!).

I'm actually working on my stamp this morning.  I live in Reynoldsburg & hope to find the Reynoldsburg series (3 boxes) this weekend.  They are all very close to one another and very close to my home.

This stamp carving concept is a tricky one... Cheesy

Hey - I love letterboxing, although I usually only do it in the warmer months.  I've gotten some boxes in the Dublin area and at some of the parks around town.

Isn't it tons of fun?  I love that its part outdoors, part crafts (if you make stamps) and part adventure!

Bought some ink pads tonight, and I *think* I am happy with my stamp.  Gotta do Justin's now & I think we're gonna venture out tomorrow... so excited to do our first adventure!

Some traditional stampers don't show their stamps, but...well...I'm not one of those people. Cheesy  I think it's neat to relate the people who have been to logs before you. Smiley

Here's mine:

Here's my fiance's (mr.sweets4ever):

They're about the same size, I just resized the pix differently when I cropped them.  I made them both from Pink Pearl erasers & an Exacto knife. Cheesy  We haven't stamped anywhere yet, but hopefully someone will recognize us in the future! Grin

I've been thinking about starting too.  Maybe I'll look around Columbus when I come home over the summer!
