Color Me Happy

July 11, 2011

This morning I saw an idea “pinned” on Jennifer’s wall that captured my attention.  It went something like this:

Pull out the  broken crayons.

Peel them. (This is harder than it seems. Turn on a good movie; you’re going to be a while.)

Divide into pretty, pretty groups.


Place in silicone mold.

Love the red and baby blue combination~

Bake at 320 for fifteen minutes.

Oh my goodness! Beautiful~

Art for making art!

Guess which combination is my favorite.

Beauty and function.

I approve this Summer Afternoon DIY activity!

    Which one do you use to colour in the naughty bits?

      Please do not make me speculate about exactly what it is that you’re planning to do. Oh well, too late.

    OH, my goodness, but this is beautiful!!!!
    and of course, dang your photos are simply amazing.

    (now, I’ve got to see why instead of a normal pic under the “I like this” bit there is this unhappy face that says it’s my name. I still have a lot of wordpress ironing to do)

      Thank you! And regardless of WordPress’s bizarre emoticons, I only associate you with the happy face! 🙂 heeee!

      I was worried when they first came out of the oven because the underside wasn’t very pretty at all, but once they cooled … what a beautiful surprise!
      Thanks for the idea!

    Awesome. I own zero crayons at the moment, but I’m filing this one away for the future…

      For shame! Zero crayons? No coloring at Harvard? Oh well, just start ordering from the kids menu at Chili’s and you’ll have a lot in no time. Of course, they will all be red, blue, and green, so that’s kind of a bummer, but really, all you need are red & blue. After they set up, you can carve a little “33” in each one. Perfect.

    Your photos are beautiful, Anne! We are so enjoying Jen and family here in NH as you can well imagine.
