    Thanks for looking though!
    Tee Hee, Chinese Mushrooms !!!
    I'll keep an eye out.

    1. Is there anywhere I can buy small, inexpensive loons?
    2. Where would I buy small blue tiles?
    3. Where can I buy loon stickers??
    4. How would I go about getting a printed loon to iron on to something?

    I have searched E-bay before, got a few loons from there last year which I put in caches but they weren't exactly inexpensive. And I've serached the 'net for loons, stickers, etc. Maybe some crafty cacher will see what I need and direct me to it. I can glue with the best of them. And I probably could iron too although it's been a while....
    have you checked big als in wiscasset?

    I get lots of my ideas from online swap pages. Here is a pic of the swap followed by the rock army that I made:

    After putting each soldier in their own case with a little sand, I gave them out at one of Rick's events. Not sure if people still have them or not.

    Default Creative uses for pathtags

    Here is a picture of the bbq invite....I attached one of our pathtags to the invite with a glue dot to ensure that it didn't move during mailing.

    Cool off topic but have to say...

    These were awesome! Not only a lot of thought and effort appreciated, but then we all had to name them! I think mine's called Pebbles. She's on my desk at work! I love it!

    I'm getting really interested in sculpy now. AND, my daughter is very artistic and used to be able to do great things with modeling clay. She got all the "artistic" genes that passed me by. Oriental Trading Company has a good online selection. Anybody have any tips and hints for using sculpy? I already have some ideas...

    And for those who say "go to your local tile store or craft store".... it's over an hour drive to even the nearest Wal-Mart and two hours to the nearest Michaels.. so online sources help a lot!

    KL,
    Instead of tiles, there are pretty rocks up your way. I was collecting a couple at the Moose Lookout cache, (forgot the name )
    Little blue or green pieces of slate would be cool, if they're not frozen in the ground ,LOL!!!!
