“Crayon Muffins”

  

Description from Beadzilla aka Wanda: Every so often when the girls were young, we would grate all our little bits of leftover wax crayons. I would then fill up little muffin tins with the grated bits and heat in the oven till they melded together. Then let them cool and the girls would have these mixed up wax crayons to color with. Anyways to try and make this long story short(haha) the girls would fill theirs up with pinks and purples. Well my crayons looked like this pick.

    Beautiful pick. Delightful story!

    Would love to have a couple of your “crayon muffins” right now :) Especially that KP pendant, the Red Silver leaf rice, and the Toho hybrids. YUM! I have both waxed linen shades and they are gorgeous!
