Recycled Crayons. 3.19.2011

This was actually a lot more entertaining than I thought it would be. My 3 year old little sister helped as long as her attention span would let her and that was fun. We peeled every broken crayon and then sorted into colors. If I ever do this again I will sort crayons by brand as well. They didn't mix well and the wax sat on top of each one {we had to color for awhile before we actually got color} It was super fun to watch them melt. We didn't even keep track of the time. They didn't want to come out so we stuck them in the freezer for 10 minutes and they came out perfect!

Crop Chocolate. Freestyle Challenge. 5.4.2011

Super Fun Giveaway!

So a couple weeks ago I did a Craft Fair and found this beauty for my baby girls pink shabby chic nursery and I loved it and had to have it! It is perfect for Jemma’s room and I love the color. Although Jemma’s room is still a work in progress it is coming together and she loves it dearly {trust me I’m not lying}.Note the two turquoise vases on her dresser... those were from Ericka as well (I'm still working on flowers for those).

Here it is after I added Jemma's pictures. 

The girl I purchased this from had some spectacular pieces and I wish I could have taken them all home (she makes ugly boring drab furniture look like pieces of art and something  you cant say 'No' to!) The wonderful, fun and amazing Ericka from Rose Colored Glasses has agreed to a giveaway for all of Summer Sweets fans! Trust me she is AH-Mazing! She did this…
