The Saucy Mews

This year myself and Isobel thought that instead of buying pressies that we would make hampers for everybody. Cheap and easy we thought.. how wrong we were! Iz was still baking bread and I was still cutting out tags right up until Christmas eve. We had eight boxes to do, jam-packed with chutneys, mince pies, preserved plums etc all with stickers of characters and even spray painted lids, never again! But on the bright side we think everybody enjoyed them. Here are all the characters I designed and the captions that Isobel came up with.

To Ian and Isobel.....you pair ROCK! The time and effort.... I hope all the hampers where apreciated. The designs are superb and the idea alone was pretty awesome. Fair play to you both. Hope you had a lovely chilled New Years! :)

...Except poo Benny, never put poo in a jar unless it's completely unavoidable. And for christ sake don't stick a label on it. Nice work though, looks great.

if there was poo in a jar I'd definitly want a label on it with the date and time of the birth of the poo.like they have on budweiser bottles. nice work benny. great idea.
