Aren't these Ninjabread Men Cookie Cutters awesome?  I'm getting them for DS karate sensais (hope they don't have 50 sets already!)

Does anyone in WA know where I can buy jars for mustards, jams etc. either online or local?  I used to buy mine from a shop in Subiaco markets, which of course is now no longer there. I am after small to medium size.
Silverlock Packaging in Canning Vale sell to the public but you have to buy minimum quantities and I don't remember what those quantities are.  :( :( sorry. Give them a ring- they were very helpful when I bought from them. I think Faffa mentioned another place in a post somewhere.

The other place is www.cospak.com.au they also have a minimum but I use jars all the time so just buy a box of 20/30 depending on the size. They are in welshpool. I am pretty sure the min spend at silver lock is $50

Black sheers with scarf for DD's room makeover......which I am seriously needing a good shove to start.



Buying the stuff that's going into the room is the easy bit  :-\ I already had to delay the bed delivery, as it was meant to be Friday just gone.......and I haven't painted it yet  :-))

Oh Maddy the one thing I hate making are curtains -despite the wonder of a finished curtain when hung - the wole process I find quite boring!!!!  Give me costumes for a stage show or adding bling to dance costumes any time, painting is in the same basket as curtains for moi!!! Good luck  :)  :)

I went into the city this morning a bought some of the just released Nespresso Christmas capsules. I also had a spend up on Lush bath bombs for Christmas gifts. I also shouted myself a new cleanser and primer at MAC. I need all the help I can get.

I saw Meagan too, on her way to hopefully make a sale.

I love Lush I am able to smell it from afar when in a shopping centre with the said outlet - our closest Lush store is the Sunshine Coast.  :(  :(

We first saw it in Brisbane many years ago. DH can smell it from about 100 metres or so. We have just got one in the city recently, before the only one here was at a local shopping centre.

Kezza,  re Panasonic bread maker,  if you want any help just ask.    Best to make a basic loaf to get started.
Thank you chookie. I made a sourdough loaf in it yesterday (bake only) and it was great.  Have now got a  a basic loaf in using the recipe in book using the rapid bake just to see what it is like. I will go back over your posts and re read your recipes and tips.
What a shame that I am not nearer Kezza you could have had mine as I no longer use it.  CC really like the look and the thought of using the Kransekake Pan - how interesting!! I love the Christmas season and Maddy I am with you re mags and a mention of Christmas   :)  :)
Johnro, how sweet. I was given a gift card at work, so thought I would now get one.

And a BIG thank you to all who gave me tips on the jars  :)
