So… I have been MIA for way to long lol I really need to post more. With vacation, Christmas and the family getting sick I guess time flew by but no more procrastinating I have many ideas and many crafty projects to share with you. I also have a confession part of my procrastination and absence was due to the crazy new fad that has taken over my household and anyone with little girls knows what I am talking about SHOPKINS!!!!
I blame McDonald’s for having Shopkins toys in there happy meals last month lol I had no idea really what they were about but I learned fast and I am happy to report we managed to collect all 56 of the McDonald’s collection, In all honesty as much as it was a PIA and yes at times it was; I had so much fun bonding with Emma and making new Shopkin Mommy friends.
Emma now wants to collect the regular shopkins and we have started to give her an allowance to buy them. Actually the allowance thing is really helping Emma do her chores sans complaints. I guess the idea of more Shopkins is working lol lets see how long it lasts.
After we completed our McDonald’s collection we were struggling with a way to organize and display them. I had a 12X12 scrapbooking paper container that I purchased from Michaels when it was on sale for $2.99 and we quickly discovered it was perfect. It held 24 Shopkins baskets and all 56 Shopkins perfectly. Plus these containers stack nicely. I then used my cricut and cut out her Name in Vinyl and placed it on the container. We purchased some stickers at the dollar store and she went to town decorating it.
She loves it and I love that all the Shopkins aren’t all over the place!!!
