Hello Friends -
Anyone know what showed up on my work station? I'm guessing my friends on the other side of the pond will recognize these without trouble, however, on this side of the pond it is not easy to find these.
I received my package from Olde English Crackers. After I made these Christmas Crackers I was on a terror to find the insides (mostly the Cracker Snaps but I decided to buy the hats at the same time). In the US it is fairly tough to find crackers and when you do they cost an arm and a leg. So, I was determined to make them this year. The challenge was buying the snaps. I found a number of companies but all of them were in England and the shipping was more than the snaps.
Finally, I found these snaps in Washington State. Yes, I had them shipped about the same distance as a trip from Jolly Ole but shipping costs made all the difference. I haven't tested these so I can't make any guarantees but, if you want to buy them you can find them here.
I'm thinking about making some birthday cracker's for Da's birthday next month. We'll celebrate while we are in Colorado for Thanksgiving. Would that be just wrong?
I have a few other things on my work station but they are all for my final Bah!Humbug! Guest Designer appearance. I thought about doing sneak peaks but honestly, I just haven't had a chance. I hope to see you all soon. I'm sure everyone else has far more interesting things on their work desks today. You must go see Julia Dunnit's incredible costume for Miss Dunnit. If you get a chance, here is where all the fun begins.
