Why has it been more than a week since I posted anything???? Mostly because I haven’t finished anything I’m proud of…….. but…here we go I guess.  I still haven’t finished the pink/ gold shirt I started, I am LOST and I don’t know what to do about, really wishing I knew someone local that I could take it to and have them tell me its not as bad as I think and show me how to finish it up in 5 mins. But that is not reality. Moving on.

I mentioned in a post earlier that I was going to make crayons. I did, that same night but didnt really post , so heres a pic.

Crayons hanging out with the new sidewalk chalk

 One thing I learned is that you need to break the crayons into bits, not just in half. The blue crayon still has some visible chunks…. but the rest turned out ok. All those random crayons we get at restraunts or picked up at the dollar store last minute when I’ve forgotten the others have been reincarnated.

I also decided, while looking at a bunch of scraps that I wanted to make something.   I’m not going to tell you what I wanted him to be, but at this point he is a monster. I think I’m going to use freezer paper to print his face on, it will be a nice experiment. Who knows if I will ever do it, I didn’t want this to be perfect but it is a LONG way from what I was looking for.

   My house is a wreck, and I don’t have anymore disappointments to share with you right now so off I go to fold laundry.

    That is such a good idea! We have random crayons from restaurants too. They’ve been accumulating in my purse. I’ll have to see how many I have to make crayons.

      I can’t claim it was my idea, but it was easy and fun to watch melting. 🙂
