~Crayon Canvas Art ~ I just had to try it~

As soon as I saw this on Sara's Blog I knew I had to try it!  So many happy colors!
Sara found here inspiration from here!
All you need is an artist canvas, crayons ( Crayola work the best) a glue gun and then a heat source.
 Row all of your crayons however you want, I choose a rainbow of colors.
Then use a hot glue gun to glue into place.
 Make a nice neat row!
 I do love crayons.......
 Once they are all glued into place I propped mine up against a glass vase to hold it up right.
Make sure to put some sort of protection under your canvas I used paper towels!
Then I used my heat gun (the others have used a hair dryer on the hottest setting).
 and just go back and forth over the crayons until they begin to melt. 
Mine made a more drippy pattern.
 I just LOVE it!
 I think this would be a great gift for a teachers classroom!
Christmas is right around the corner!
I already had a glue gun so this total project cost under $10.00!
I hope you try this project! It is sure to brighten up any room!

~Crocheting a Flower Garden~

I have been on a crocheting spree I found this super talented gal awhile ago!  She makes such beautiful designs and when she posted this tutorial on how to make Japanese flowers I became "hooked" literally!
Here is a look at what I have been working on.
I loved these colors but this yarn was a bit thick to work with...
 I still really like how they turned out!

 This yarn was a bit better to work with...

Next on my list Granny Squares....
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
