I work at a church as a Children's Director and everyone always brings me crayons. Soooo - Here's what I worked on today - 300 crayons to send to the kiddos at my church for Valentine's Day!
I never want broken crayons again!

I...I...I don't think I could ever do that. My brain would be melted into the shape of a tiny heart I think.

Congrats on finishing all of that hard work.  Cheesy

LOL - the melt and pour is the easy part - it's removing all those wrappers from all those crayons that drove me insane!

'kaBlewiyiey1!!1!'

Ok guys, tell me I can sooo let go of a skein of yarn (even though I can not afford to buy any more this year) that just annoys me each and every time I look at it for the last several months.  Angry

This yarn is fine, good yarn but it is a baby yarn in weight and coloring. I can not see me using this stuff in a million years and I just want it out of my life now.  Undecided

Let it go--I have a fuzzy rainbow huge skein of yarn that I keep passing over--it is time to let it go, too! Cheesy

ehinders--love your use of your plaid fabric...I am not a huge fan of plaid, but I love the scarf...I think because your plaids are soft, pastels...mine are ugly woodsmen dingy looking plaids...maybe it is time to let those go as well...

k-star--I will be missing your daily hat report... Cheesy  You have churned out a few...

omg--so many crayons...do they not make crayons without wrappers?  Next time I go to the Crayola factory, I am going to ask!  What a good cause, though..the kids will love the hearts!

rottenlittleboys- It's perfectly okay to get rid of it. I've been hanging on to so much stuff because, "I might use it someday." even though I don' like the color or in some cases, it's ugly. I have decided I need to stop hoarding and start giving away. I start with my mom and crafty friends. Then, if none of them want it, I give it to one of the local thrift stores. (Of course, saying all this is easier than actually doing it...)  Tongue

AIMR-thanks!

My mother works at the business office for a school and I'm giving her all of my clay to bring in to work to donate to the art class. that way I don't have to feel bad about just throwing it away (most hasn't even been opened!) and I free up lots of space. All of it filled a medium sized flat rate shipping box. I bought the clay a few years ago off of Ebay for about $20. I have decided that I just don't do enough with clay (or anything at all really) so I want it gone. A couple months ago I did buy some paper clay but that is for when I do mods and props for the dolls that I collect. So I only have that one block of clay as opposed to a huge box full.

My mother also destashed six skeins of yarn for me. She crocheted a scarf and is donating it like I do with the scarves I make. ^.^

It took 3 gallon sized bags of bits and pieces to make these  Shocked
I melt them in the oven in a throwaway aluminum cinnamon roll pan. Heat at 275 until melted. Pour into silicone molds. Once you use a mold for crayons don't use it for food! I find shaped molds in the Target Dollar spot and at the Dollar Tree.
