Thank you!  I still haven't decided what to do with it, but I thought I might make him a pillow and a new bed and use it as a patch.

Thanks guys!  They were perfect to take for lunch, they would be partially defrosted and ready to heat and eat by the time I was hungry.

Some were definitely better than others.  The Greek lentil soup was THE BEST EVER!

My idea came from here http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/kzb1v/my_friends_just_moved_they_decided_to_use_all/ via here http://ianbrooks.me/post/11033327010/halloween-house-made-by

I loved this idea.  I only have three windows that face the street...but I figured I'd give it a go!  I used black foam board, tissue paper, contact paper and an exacto knife and circle cutter.

This is a crappy shot from the street on a phone that doesn't zoom enough to compensate for the fact that I live on the third floor:

You can see I did little extra eyes.  It wasn't that impressive from three floors down...but oh well!

Each monster up close and during the day:

My friend brought over a Sublime Stitching book that had tons of cute patterns...but I picked this one:

An homage to my baby boy, Walter Sobchak

A few weeks ago I came across this http://www.hellobrit.com/food/12-healthy-soups-to-warm-you-up-all-winter-long/

A couple Sundays ago, in just about 5 hours, I made five of those soups.

1. Creamy White Bean Soup (I used turkey bacon)

2. Roasted Squash and Pear Soup with Brie (probably the least healthy)

3. Fresh Greek Lentil Soup

4. Beet and Fennel Soup with Greek Yogurt (two grocery stores I went to only had flavored kefir, but greek yogurt works just fine!)

5. Roasted Garlic Broccoli Soup

All in the freezer:

I made 35 small containers (plus a little extra of the squash and Greek lentil soups).  I gave one container of each kind to my neighbor and one of each to my mom.  Still enough soup for me for a month!

Did you just buy 20+ boxes of crayons or is there another way to get multiples of the colors you want?

I did buy a lot of crayons...at WalMart right before back to school.  However, and I am ashamed to admit this, I cherry picked some of the colors and made a few of the boxes only have the colors I wanted.

I felt slightly guilty afterwards.

Thanks for all of the kind words, folks!

28  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Melted Crayon Art to match my living room! on: August 18, 2011 12:41:16 PM
I have been seeing this project EVERYWHERE on the internet...except I haven't signed into Craftster in a while so it's probably all over here too...sorry :/

Anyhow...a bunch of the originals I saw said they glued the crayons to the canvas and then left them out in the sun.  Then I read a bunch of blogs that said even in 100+ degree heat, that didn't work for them and they used a blowdryer.  So I skipped the sun and opted for my blowdryer.  My recommendation would be to use an attachment that concentrates the heat into one place.  Mine kinda flares out...hence the splatters.

Anyhow.  Onto the pictures!

First I picked out all the colors I wanted to match my living room:

Then I lined them up by color:

Then I lined them up on the canvas panels (I think I rearranged a bit after this):

Then I glued and melted them.  They'll hang above this couch(and there's the blanket I knitted that I have yet to tie in ends or post):


I have a third panel, but I need more crayons.  I also desperately need to paint my walls...but this will help...once I figure out how I'm going to hang them.

Pink wouldn't be my first choice, but I can see past the colour to the fantastic design, which I may have to pinch to help me out!

Pinch away!

Wow, that's bright. I'd never have any problem finding that in my bag!

Yeah, it's a bit pink for me...but I think it's just the right amount for her.
