Capricorn, done for the Zodiac LTC swap.
Night’s Watch Oath from Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire.
I got two packets of LTCs today. Yay!
This was for an original art challenge. I did the calligraphy, scanned it, traced it onto my stamp image, and then carved it out. It’s from a haiku poem by Basho (a very famous poet). The text translation can be found <a href=”http://carlsensei.com/classical/index.php/text/view/43”>here</a>.
Carved for a vintage railroad posters LTC group, based off a Japanese Government Railways poster. I’ve since straightened out the bottom.
This is my workspace. I am in love with the desk, though I need to figure out something different for my seating.
Welcome to my Letterboxing blog! For those wandering in from other websites, Letterboxing is a “stashing” game a bit like geocaching (though it doesn’t require GPS or expensive equipment and predates Geocaching…it’s sort of nice in that you can more or less spend as much money or as little as you want).
Anyway, letterboxers follow clues posted on websites such as atlasquest.com to find boxes hidden in public spaces. Generally boxes have a logbook and a stamp; stamps are usually hand carved with unique images.
To start, all you really need is a book to stamp in and an ink pad. Most people also have signature stamps to sign logbooks but it’s not required.
There are various non-traditional kinds of letterboxes, too; I especially like Letterbox Trading Cards (or LTCs) because you can find groups running on certain themes; in exchange for your cards you get a bundle of others back along the same theme.
This blog will probably be primarily image-based, with pictures of my stamps, LTCs, and photos taken while boxing.
Thanks for stopping by!
