Please Say Yes.

After writing about missing beloved pets and employees dealing with the loss of a man they loved and respected, my boss said it might be time to mention that sometimes our globes are actually created for happier occasions.

That was Then and This is Now.

One of my favorite family personalized snow globe recently was simple and sweet.

Music Snow Globe

Music snow globes that have the wind up music box in the bottom of the snow globe have been around for a very long time. The component that makes the music is typically a 18 note harp that is activated by winding it up. The music will play until the spring has to be wound up again. The music that is available is very limited in these wind up components and the availability is very undependable.

The Idea Fairy Commeth.

Whine and complain

One thing about making a custom item, is people always want to give you ideas on how you can make it better. We get requests from folks who think we should take their photos and make them into 3-D figurines, and find ways to suspend pieces of confetti so they never fall to the bottom of the globe. People say "wouldn't it be cool if you put a little fan inside each globe so the glitter kept swirling and I didn't have to shake it?"

A Plug for the Competition - sort of.

Original Snowglobe Factory in Vienna. You can look it up. These guys claim to have invented the snow globe and since none of us were around in 1900, we aren't about to dispute that. Bravo for coming up with good idea and staying around for more than 100 years. If you are ever in their neighborhood in Austria, they have a snowglobe museum that is supposed to be pretty neat.
