Re: Helpful Hints for Newcomers

Drat, ian-and-penny, I've been eating mints like no one's business for powertrail purposes. (I'm 100% joking, though I did pick up an ammo can at an antique shop, want to get more finds before hiding a permanent cache though). As for helpful hints, here's mine from this week. When you get to the are...

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

RIGHT mad dash, foam troubles and a little bit of rushing about like a madwoman and I have 6 gnomes out in the wilds. Huzzah!

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

I'm in gnome frenzy today because - amazingly, it slipped my mind. Yes, a line up of gnomes on the desk didn't remind me.

Stupid gnomes, one of them should have SAID.

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

You can also pack a gnome with polystyrene lumps and then expanda foam around those to save on foam.

It's true it's practically single use, if you have multi gnomes, do em all at the same time.

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

Surely no matter what size you're looking for, if you spot a gnome.. well it's a gnome.

I don't know how I'm listing mine yet, still getting the little buggers painted.

Every time I think I'm about done, my friends say "You need to do a [Insert random but brilliant idea here] gnome!"

Re: tigersden has female cub

The Welsh meaning of Cordelia is "Jewel of the sea" so perhaps a pearl or something? English and Celtic just have her as "of the sea". It's a lovely old fashioned name, I like it.

She's beautiful (but you knew that). Congratulations :)

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

Female dwarfs have beard, why not gnomes? Discworld fan? I have painted two gnomes (so far, this is a bit addictive isn't it?). One of them was a tribute to Batman in honour of my blokechap, but he's unhappy with the colours I used :roll: Serves me right for dating a gigantor nerd. Still have some ...

Re: Cheap custom stamps - $4 shipped

Same here, the top stamp is cut off and I thought the stamp would be too. Thankfully it wasn't. Nice clear stamp, very happy with it.

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

Be wary on ebay everyone! There's someone flogging gnomes for $50 that I can get for $5.95 locally. Make sure you check out the cheapcrap shops etc before you bid.

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

Well I found two at Bunnings, overpriced but the only kind they had. They're just painted grey, and I'm about to start on them in the Customisation Gnome Station (aka, big ol cardboard box).

Re: The Moving Cache Race for 2010/2011

Spoke to my brother, apparently the gnomes are there, you just have to FIND them, so I'll do that tomorrow.

Mundoo, I too am suffering the pain of finding gnomes I like.

I... I actually said "Oh, I can't use that one! He might get broken!".
