She might be tiny, but Strawberry Shortcake has a huge heart. Her friends love to gather at her Berry Cafe, where they can always count on Strawberry Shortcake for a helping hand and some berry delicious "treats"-no wonder she's everyone's best friend in Berry Bitty City...
super cute but not for $$
Cons: The small pieces are TINY
Best Uses: Kids ok w small parts, Older Children, Imaginative Play
Describe Yourself: Parent of Two or More Children, Stay at Home Parent
Was this a gift?: No
The small pieces are a pain to keep up with because they are TINY. The doll is super cute and the bike is easy to use and easy to put the trunk up and down. My daughter is 2 1/2 but she is pretty good about puting everything back into the bin I got for all the small SSC stuff. So far she has loved this with the strawberry house. The seat belt is the only part she has a problem with but a four year old (the min age on the box) shouldn't have a problem. I just don't think its worth 20$ maybe the 15 or 10 I paid for it on sale

I have just started to use stwagbucks.com. I so far have 39 sb and I signed up yesterday. I will up date you every week as to how the "pay to search" toolbar/website is working for me.
Ok so it has now been close to a month and I have 243 SB. You need at least 400+ to get anything. The searching is really not that convenient as the first few search results on the list seem to be ad's or a redirection. Try searching for medical info/advice its a joke!
So in conclusion I am going to keep it up for a bit longer and give it a chance. I search silly stuff in the SB search bar and any real search that I need the correct info on I search google or yahoo.
I will update again in a few months.

SO here are some of my ideas.
- White washing the fireplace
- cleaning out and painting the bookcase
- Getting storage containers for the toys and clutter in the bookcase
- changing out my curtains (WHITE here I come!)
- paint the walls and ceiling( they are goldish and red right now I am going with a warm light grey....i think....)

Cinnamon Craft Dough
- 4 cups of cinnamon (if you can, buy in bulk--this is cheapest)
- 3 cups applesauce
- 1/2 cup white school glue
They love these and the kids love making them. They are non edible so that last forever and they smell like Cinnamon every time we take them out of the bag for the tree. We are getting the tree tonight so look out for photos =)
Next is this wonderful invention from knockoff wood.com. Anna is a genius for sure. http://ana-white.com/2010/12/moms-lego-table.html/comment-page-1#comment-25729
I can't wait to get started and I hope that it is as easy as the bookcases
http://ana-white.com/2010/01/creative-guest-knock-off-wood-bookcases.html I made around T day that are still a conversation piece whenever people come over. I did mine in black with baskets for the shoes on the top shelf and the boots on the bottom shelf.
http://joyisathome.blogspot.com/2010/12/berry-beady-wreath-tutorial.html. I can't wait to get started but I think I may add a classic red bow to them.
And for the table top

I BUILT a bookcase (shoe storage) by myself with a little help from Knockoffwood.com. Anna has some great, easy to execute plans. I have only build one of the two bookcases so far. I plan to build the second this week. It cleaned the shoe corner near my back door perfectly. I need to get baskets still but so far so good. It made the whole corner feel much bigger. I will post pics as soon as I get the baskets but so far this non building non organizeed mess of a homemaker is pulling things together YAY!
