Wishniks


Today's SCS challenge was called Childhood Memories.
When I was a kid I had quite the obsession for collecting Wishnik Trolls. The large troll on the end with the red hair is the only thing that I have left from my childhood (other than my game of Clue). I remember standing in line with my father holding my hand at the Provident Bank in Willingboro, NJ where they were giving away these trolls if you opened an account there. I must have been about 5 at the time. The troll was a pirate with a red and white striped shirt, an earring, and an eye patch. Don't know where they went to over the years. The other little trolls I got on ebay, I guess I must be "vintage" too because that is how these are listed :)
The troll stamp is by Inkadinkado, paper Craft Secrets, cardstock SU of Purely Pomegranate and Bermuda Bay with Bermuda Bay polka dot ribbon. Sketch is Mojo Monday 131.

OH MY GOODNESS--you have just whisked me away to my childhood (in not-too-far-away SE Pennsylvania)! I am sending this post to my sisters, they will crack up! What a fun image and you done them proud! I think all my trolls (we called them Iggys for some reason) were naked, though!!! ;D

Wow a blast from the past. I also loved trolls - my favorite one had purple hair. I used to sew my own clothes for the dolls - kind of my start in crafting. I adore the card and your picture with the trolls you gathered. And I really enjoy your blog and appreciate your talent. Thanks for sharing.
