Lately I've been craving Rock a little more.... I'll be driving along wishing that I had my old Sublime, 311, or rock mix cd's with me, only I think it's a good thing that I don't because they probably aren't appropriate for my 3 year old to be listening too.
Anyway - I am currently LOVING Linkin Park - Waiting for the end it's been all over the radio lately... If you know me at all you know I love lyrics, here are a few lines....
With fists flying up in the air Like we're holding onto something That's invisible there, 'Cause we're living at the mercy of The pain and the fear
Waiting for the end to come Wishing I had strength to stand This is not what I had planned It's out of my control....
Wouldn't it be fun to hit up a mosh pit at the Huntridge like the good old days...eh Vegas kids?
About a year ago I saw this idea for melting crayons on a blog. I would tell you where, but I honestly don't remember. So, a year ago I headed to the dollar store to get 2 hand towels and a cheese grater. I already had a large box of well used broken crayons from my childhood to use.
I finally did the project.
Elizabeth helped me sort the colors ....
And peel all the wrapping off.
(fyi: I didn't even come close to using all of these.)
Then once the kids were in bed (E is too little to handle a grater and an iron)
I set up shop.
If you don't know the next steps... well, just ask I guess. I think most people have done this before.
Then I cut out the shapes I wanted.....
This one shows off the pretty flowers Jer gave me. :)
We had a ROCKIN' VALENTINES' DAY PARTY the on Sat. the 12th. I sadly didn't get any pictures. HOWEVER, rest assured that we had a great time, with TONS of AMAZING food, (my friends are the best cooks!) and GREAT company! It was a BLAST!
Here are some of the decorations that I did with the crayon melts (that's what I'm naming this project)
And with the rest of the hearts we made E's Valentines for her class.
