Some Rainy Day Color

Its been work, work, work, and rain, rain, rain around here.

When I saw this mini-tutorial for DIY Recycled Crayons over at Living the Swell Life--a wonderful little blog, I knew we had to do it to bring some color into our dreary day.

I think the best part of this craft are the pictures! 
Love all the color!








Aren't they fun?  We're going to package up a handful
to put in birthday gifts for a couple of Brooklynn's friends.

Now, what other things can we do to forget about the rain?

P.S. I'm linking up to Friday Pretties
Go on over and visit Joyce and all the pretty things!

Love, love, love the colors you created! So wonderful with spring on the way. Makes me want to color! My 16 yr. old just had me purchase coloring books for her the other day. She said she has always loved to color and wanted to do it again. I love it!

Yes ~ GREAT pictures. Looks like fun to make. Maybe I should do them with my kiddos. They would probably love it. Are you going to MT.? Hope so!

I had a giant comment written out for you for my grateful post but I lost it!! Damn phone!! I will try type it on a CPU if I remember.

I'm grateful for my patient bf after I put my back out this weekend and I've been a snappy cranky in pain pants!
I'm grateful for my aunt for the 3 bunches of giant dafodils I got today!

Your pics are fantastic!! I also love what you did with them. Think I might give it ago!

There's a giveaway on my blog n a mini survey of 5 questions - I think you'd like the book. Just if you haven't already filled it in! xo

this project always brings back super warm, fuzzy memories. my sister {who is 10 years older than me} would make these recycled crayons with me when i was little. i thought it was so much fun!

Gorgeous Pictures!!! And, what a great idea. :)

I still love, love, love to color. A friend of mine and I were talking about coloring and she told me that while I was waiting in a waiting room while she was having her first baby, 26 years ago, that I colored the whole time. ? Who knows why, and I do not remember this, but she says so...Anyway- Love this!!!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
