Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm a single mum with a beautiful daughter and I started crocheting 4 years ago when I quit smoking, I'm a huge fan of the granny square and mostly spend my free time making blankets as well as occasionally trying to expand my crafty skills :-)

Having fun with crayons...

One of my lovely little nieces just had her third birthday and I couldn't think of a thing to crochet for her-I'm not very good at crochet toys and I wanted to make something a bit different this time!
Myf and I came across this on Facebook and decided to give it a go :-D.  We have a lot of crayons around...

And after much peeling away of paper and breaking them into pieces, we were ready to put them into the oven!  Ten minutes or so later...

They need a little stir with a toothpick to get the colours all swirled together-I think Myf enjoyed that part the most!

Once they'd hardened and cooled, it was easy to pop them out and voila!  Chunky crayons, perfect for little hands to scribble and scrawl with.

A little cellaphane wrapping, some purple sparkly ribbon and done!  We added a colouring book for her as well and hopefully she loves her present.  My other littlest niece has her birthday in a few days and we have another set ready to go :-D
