Well, Christmas and the Holidays have come and gone and my house and my life have finally returned to “normal”. I’m not really a New Years Resolution kind of person, but this year I decided to make a couple. I totally think that voicing your goals for all to hear is a great way to make you stick to it, so here it goes:
My first one is to get out of the house more and do the things I say I’m gonna do. I tend to make myself a lot of promises about going and doing things, like going to the zoo, or going to Disneyland with the kids more, or whatever and then, I decide I don’t feel like taking on that challenge so we end up not going.
My second New Years resolution is to not let things bother me so much and be more laid back (like my husband). I really envy his ability to just let things roll off his back. To be honest, sometimes it’s a little annoying, too. But, I would like to channel that side of me a little more. I think it would make me (and probably a couple of other people, too) a lot happier.
What are some of your New Years resolutions? I would love to hear some.
Alright, after we finished making L’s teacher gifts for Christmas we had a lot of leftover crayon bits so I decided we needed to do something about that and so we melted them.
Here is the link to the crayon frame post if you didn’t catch that one.
Here is a simple way to turn your old crayon bits into usable crayons again:
1. Gather up all your broken crayons and other little crayon scraps.
2. Preheat your oven to 150 degrees. Divide crayons in to colors and fill your muffin tins up to a one inch thick layer.
3. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until wax has melted. (Keep an eye on it.)
4. Let them cool and then pop them out and you’re ready to start coloring!
