that I have been on this earth for thirty*mmphh* years and have JUST NOW found out the sheer wonder and awesomeness of Shrinky Dinks? OMG, they are sooooo cool. For the record, I did want them as a kid, but thought for some reason that you needed to have an oven with a window, otherwise they would not work. We did not have a windowed oven in our harvest gold range while I was growing up. And admittedly, after watching it through my oven window this evening, it would not have been nearly as satisfying.
