Just found these videos today and I'm hooked!
Things I love about this video series:
1. Short and sweet and to the point.
2. Supply list and instructions written out.
4. Relevant to my life!
When they opened the drawer with the giraffe's top-half, I legit thought they were going to put the leftover butt in with the rest of the toys. I have no idea why I imagined that but now I can't stop laughing. 😆🤣😆
I like the first and last ones the best.
I've always just measured and cut cute/pretty scrapbook paper to fit inside the front of the drawer "window". But I really like the more permanent version with the nail polish water, too.
I was like 'why would you blow dry a giraffe like are you trying to melt it' and then I saw the knife and I saw him go back on forth on this plastic giraffe and I'm like :O like the toys will probably be used more like that but the giraffe... and elephant and zebra....
As a kid those drawers, where the animals were stuck halfway through the plastic with no rear ends like freaky half-alive David Cronenberg nightmare creatures, would have given me nightmares. Cute spray paint, though! 👍🏻
Kim Telford I'm just saying that it its always risky to watch Youtube videos with little kids, since they are easily upset and take stuff very seriously. That's why its a good idea to pre-watch videos if you're going to view them with a younger audience.
leeza yeah, because somebody would think that they need to prewatch a video about organisation hacks, just in case it would be inappropriate for a little kid.
Let’s be honest. Most people didn’t see the giraffe thing coming at all.

So they don't look messy and oh Lord I hate to say it... Tacky. I have about 8 of them myself so I'm not judging but be realistic they're kind of cheap and cheesy looking even though they are extremely convenient.

Hi, my name is Ross Williams . Let me share a personal story with you. Back in 2007, I held an excellent position at a large IT company with a nice monthly salary. By 2008, the great recession hit. The company ran into financial problems and was forced to lay off over 50% of its staff. Unfortunately for me, I was included.
So there I was stranded, unemployed, with all the bills to pay and a family to support. Where I lived, such jobs werent easy to come by. So I decided to do a little research. I spent many sleepless nights on the web just searching for something to do, anything that could help support me and my family. I just wanted a way to make money, and not lose it, as I soon found to be the case with numerous internet scams.
Just like you, I often stumbled upon all types of web sites offering me some money matrix scheme, promising me all the money in the world. Yeah, right! From stuffing envelopes, Multi Level Marketing, High Yield Investment Programs, to selling all types of useless products. You name it, Ive been there, done that.
Finally, I came across something that worked.
Online advertising has skyrocketed over the past few years. In 2015, companies spent close to $50 billion advertising online. That figure is expected to increase substantially in 2016. What does this mean for you? A lot more money could be going into your bank account this year. Thats IF you take advantage of this secret system.
Companies worldwide are desperately searching for people just like you to type up their ads and post them online, and theyll pay you nicely in return. Its a win-win situation. They get more customers, you get paid. Its as simple as that. These companies have cash, LOTS of it and theyre eager to share it with you. All types of individuals around the world are using this system to make more money than they ever could working in a boring, dead-end job. You can work part-time or full-time, its all up to you.
