New Barbie Craft, part 1

Hi Friends!

It's been a while, I know! I had planned on posting this Sunday but when you're pregnant and get a burst of energy, it's time to go out to town and get things done! Like:

Shopping (food)
Shopping (non-edibles at a different store)
Wash the car


So while I was out a week ago looking at A-DOR-ABLE baby clothes I found something I could NOT live without!

Oh my goodness, does anyone ever remember doing these when they were a kid? I remember when my brother and I did them with his "Ghostbusters" shrinky dinks. They were tons of fun! This kit is unique because it includes all the fix-ins to make your own Barbie charm bracelets. Cool!

And, the kit is complete!

This was such an amazing score! And I will blog the process. I plan to get them all colored this weekend and am prepared to bring back my childhood and watch them shrink in the oven!

This store also had a few dolls for sale which I thought was totally awesome. I have to watch though as I have eliminated my purchases of the newer body type. I've been buying any old Barbie body types that I find so I can fit them in all the old clothes that I have. Unfortunately all the dolls they had there were the newer body type. I do have plans to go back, maybe I can find another score at that time!

It's just a few more short days till the Ever After High comic contest will be over and I can post my fun comic on my blog for all to see. In a couple of posts down the line I'll also be featuring some awesome Barbies from my personal collection that I've been wanting to feature for a while. I hope you'll like them!

Until then!

What a great craft set! Something like that was not available in my childhood, but I would have loved it. I always liked creative toys. So cool, that it is complete.

I wish you luck for your next visit at that store.

I hope your pregnancy is not too stressful. I remember shopping for baby clothes, lol, it's so easy to go overboard with all that cuteness.

Oh my, yes, I can't wait till I know what I'm having. I'm dying to buy pink or blue :)

I can't wait to give this a shot. Yay, childhood toys! :)
