1  Re: International Snack Swap 2 Gallery! in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by mygrandmasaysimkool on: December 10, 2010 07:09:30 PM
I received my package from plumbucket today (well it came in yesterday but they tried to deliver while I was at work so had to pick it up today)

Unfortunatly most of what I received is available to me in Canada:

I received:
-An awesome knitted hat
-a mirror

what I can get here:
-caramel Milk Duds
-original Mike & Ike
-original Skittles
-wild berry Skittles
-hershey's cookies and cream
-Reece's peanut butter big cup
-york peppermint patty

what I can't get here:
-lemon heads
-5th Avenue
-Slim Jim
-Now and Later.... I don't know if we can get them here anymore but I know we could when I was in highschool.
-Goetze's bullseye caramel

I did read that Hershy has a different recipe between what you can find in Canada and the US. I've tried the Cookies & Cream and Rolo and it was right... there does seem to be a taste difference. I found I do like the Canadian versions better. As for the Big Cup... I didn't notice any taste difference.

Regardless of being able to find most of it here, being able to do the taste difference and receiving the hat definitly made up for it. It's funny because I was going to go winter hat shopping this weekend. I wanted a new one and it's cold here right now.

2  Wall Art in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by mygrandmasaysimkool on: April 19, 2008 09:03:01 PM
I've been a lurker on here forever but havn't posted anything yet. I'm the type of person who would like to think they are crafty but really am not. I keep thinking of starting something but never do.  I had some canvas, scrapbook paper and mod podge. I wanted something for the walls for my new apartment I'll be moving into. Total cost was about $2.00..... $1 for the canvas from the dollar store and paper was 3 for $1.00 from Michael's (I only used one sheet). I'm quite pleased with it and am definitly making a trip to the store tomorrow for more paper.

The completed project
