Last night I attempted a crayon craft to use with Valentine's Day cards for my sons classmates. What a chore that was. The paper takes forever to come off the crayon, and they all were stuck in my pan after they melted and hardened. I banged the pan on the rug, over and over and over...finally the last one was out and my pan didn't break. Miracle. It is warped however. If I ever do this project again it would only ever be with one of those silicon pans. I did use cooking spray, but it just didn't help, maybe I didn't use enough. But the crayon disks are out and they look awesome! The top actually looks so-so but the bottom, neato!
Night before last, I sewed a knee patch on a pair jeans, then I used some of the leftover denim to sew this little puffy heart. I love hearts, and I love buttons, and I love Valentine's Day!! Happy Valentine's Day to you! Not sure what I will do with it, it could be a pendant, or a pin, or something else. Lately I am really itching for stitching. I don't know what it is. I just want to sew things and stitch things. I love mixed media arts, and fabrics, and many things like that. The lighter pink button laying next to the heart is a button that I made using polymer clay.
