Everybody likes SPAM, right?  Well, why haven't we done any swaps or craftalongs with SPAM?

Spam was created in 1937 and is sold in 41 countries on 6 continents. By 2007, 7 BILLION cans of Spam were sold around the world!

Spam is the most popular in the state of Hawaii.  They created Musubi, which is a kind of sushi made with Spam.  Some of it is really cute! In Hawaii, Spam is sold at McDonald's and Burger King.  Yes, it is that popular!

What does Spam stand for?  Some people say it stands for "Spiced Ham".  Others thing is stands for "Spare Meat". It might even an acronym for "Specially Processed American Meat"...SPAM!

Did you know that there is a museum in Austin, Minnesota, the home of SPAM?  What a fun place to visit!

There are now over 39 varieties of SPAM...there is even a lite Spam for those watching their waistline!  My favorite is hot & spicy Spam...

What are some of your favorites?

Let's craft some SPAM!


Here is am using my favorite can to hold my gel pens for coloring books!  Great way to organize!

Do you have a dog?  Mine seems to like it, but I can only give him a little at a time or else he throws up.

I'm in. I've always been curious about all the different flavors. I saw a Chorizo flavored SPAM in the store yesterday. Maybe I'll have to try it out.
