Well my tease about the retro craft was short lived, as I was too excited to put them off until later in the month. It’s Shrinky Dinks!
I found them on clearance at my local craft store earlier this week. Hello 1985! Had to buy them. When 25 years has passed since your last Shrinky Dink experience, the wonder of them is completely renewed. I was for some reason shocked that they shrunk so much. Hooray for recapturing some childhood joy.
Shrinky Dinks are also nearly impossible to photograph well. So, my apologies for the sub-par photos today. I wish that I could capture the cute polka dots and stripes better than I did. Just trust me, they are adorable. And shrunk to the size of nickels and quarters. I loved every minute of it.
