I’m a Big Kid

Dear Optimists,

You know what’s fun? Legos. They’re the best. Know what else is fun? Crayons. So I decided to combine them.

That’s right, folks, my creative side came out, I ordered a Lego man ice cube tray and then broke up crayons, microwaved them for about five minutes, then threw them into the fridge. Know what came out? Crayons shaped like Lego men! SWEET!

It’s the little things, isn’t it?

    • Thank you, but I just read about it somewhere…I didn’t even know crayons would melt in the microwave! Makes sense though…they melt in the sun!

  9. I havent been around for a couple of weeks. Had a few bits of bad news in the family and ive been a bit of a recluse. Came back to work today, cant concentrate, so decided i would cheer myself up with your blog, and my god you have done just that. I love your blogs sooooo much! So glad i found you.
    P.S. Who does your drawings? I love them! I wish i could draw like that x

    • First, I am sorry to hear of you bad news. But I’m glad we could bring you some happiness in such a rough time. And Nadia does the drawings for the blog, and does a beautiful job, doesn’t she?
