Crayons and Word Olympics
Part One: Crayons
My gang was sick yesterday. Since the girls were already hanging out on the couch I brought them their broken crayons and made them peel the skins.
We arranged broken bits in holders and popped them in the oven. Maybe I shouldn't have used a rubber ice cube tray because it melted.
But the melted tray was worth it:
we have happy hearts to give away.
Which brings me to
Part Two : The Writer Games
In celebration of the upcoming Olympic Winter Games, I am going to be hosting The Writer Games, a sort of blogger Word Olympics, if you will.
Just like real Olympics, it will include different competitions and will take place for two weeks. And just like the real Olympics, there will be prizes: I'm talking medals, blog interviews, and a giveaway I know you'll love. (Hint hint: It has to do with craftsy recycling, and may even include melted crayons).
So stay tuned, tell your pals, sharpen your wits, crack your writing knuckles and have thesaurus.com standing by. It all starts Monday, February 8.
