This fountain of all knowledge had to look it up--"get cracking" is based on the old slang use of "to crack" which meant to travel at speed--maybe it related to cracking a whip?--so it doesn't just mean get going, it means get going FAST.
I imagined it meant something like, "Get cracking those nuts, kids! Only two days till Christmas and we still have ten fruitcakes to make and deliver!"

Hello!


  • Thanks for visiting my blog! In short, I'm a wife, mother, artist, and just happen to have been born with an insatiable need to create beautiful things. I've categorized my creative endeavors into seven main areas, hence the 7 Layers; Textile/Pattern design, Sewing, Photography, Interior/Landscape design, Painting/Drawing, Monotypes/Printmaking, and Baking/Cake Decorating. There. I think that's 7(ish). You're welcome to use any of my ideas for personal use, but please do not copy and sell the things/ideas you see here without my permission. Thanks, and enjoy!
