Laura dreams the dream of living like a craft-star pop diva. Striving to become an artisan whose art is the "day job." Knowing that in an alternate dimension this is the case, she does the behind the scenes work in this reality to create the cool items, that score her diva status over there, in that alternative place.
Last year a friend and I decided instead of sending our kids to school with even MORE candy for valentines day we would make heart shaped crayons. The kids had a blast chopping up old crayons and melting them into these heart shapes. This year my kids and I did it again. They both really enjoyed the process-even though momy had to finish the last batch--short attention span theater. The better quality crayons have less wax in them and make for better crayons, the ones with more wax end up creating very cool color layers.
