Been a little slow to post a few more of the late summer orders we filled. Took a family vacation followed by buying and moving to a new house, which shut down the kitchen for a few weeks. We managed to squeeze out a few last minute cookies, including these Bees for a women's golf tournament group called the Queen Bees.
Me: So, what kind of cookies would your little girl like for her birthday party? Rainbows? Ponies?
8 yo's mom: she LOVES shopkins!
Me: shopping? Cute! So maybe some bags and a credit card and....
8 yo's mom: no SHOPKINS! You know, tiny little plastic figurines that look like food and everyday items.
Me: hmmm. (And seriously thinking this is some random obscure toy that this one kid found on a trip to holland or something).
Then I looked them up. Um, did you all know about these crazy little toys? I've clearly been under a rock (or a large cookie) recently. These things are taking the toy world by storm. I swear some crazy old guy started this craze to make up for investing millions in beanie babies in the 90's. But I digress. I needed to make shopkins cookies for a sweet 8 yo. Cookie somebody, tickety-tock and something called a Gemma Stone. She was happy, so I was too.
