Can you believe I’ve never tried Shrinky Dinks?? It’s on that list of things, like a Polaroid camera, that I always wanted as a kid but never could have. I finally bought some the other day with the Michaels gift card my mother-in-law gave me for my birthday. IT IS SO COOL!!!!! I did these doodles while I was at work, and I learned that drawing on plastic is not so easy… In fact, I kind of hated how they turned out. But once they shrunk I loved them! And watching them shrink was seriously amusing. Shaun had never done them either, so there we were, two grown adults glued to the oven window giddy with excitement as little plastic things squirmed around and got smaller. Juniper came upstairs and was all “What’s all the excitement about? You guys are weird.” I can’t wait to make some more. I’m going to shrink some of Juniper’s doodles!
I turned the ‘Temperance’ banner into a bracelet and the little fox made a perfectly adorable little brooch. I glued a tiny pompom to him, just because I thought it was cute. I gave them all a coat of clear nail polish to stop them from smudging. I think a lot of people are going to be getting Shrinky Dink gifts this year! Earrings, pins, necklaces, bracelets… My mind is of full of ideas!
This weekend we are going to make our first ever cake pops. We’re going to do it up right and film a cooking show with Juniper as the host! She is so excited about being on YouTube, she’s so silly.
