Crayon Roll, 500th Post & A Giveaway


I whipped up this crayon roll last night. It'll be going into Sadie's Easter basket. I've seen a lot of these around but didn't think much of them until I realized how nice they'd be for the church bag. A little organization is never a bad thing.


This, my friends, is my 500th post. Crazy, I know. Keeping with tradition around here at Sparkle Power, it is time for a giveaway. Unfortunately I don't have anything prepared yet. But, go ahead & leave a comment to be entered into the drawing & don't worry......whatever the prize is, it'll be good. :) I'll draw a name on Thursday night.

WHAT? Im too anal to have a crayon roll- I'd be the only one putting the crayons back in it! You have some mad skills to whip it up! Cute idea. Easter baskets-hmmmm- better get on that!

Wow, you crazy blogger!! I love the crayon roll. My friend, Ollie, made one for her knitting needles, and it made me want to knit just to have one. Definitely a much cuter alternative to the little ziploc bag I've got holding the church crayons right now. Love it.

Heather said...

I just have to come out and say I am a lurker. I have no idea how I came across your blog, but my daughter is the same age as Claire. So it is nice to see what she is doing. :) I also love seeing what stuff you come up with. I love the crayon roll and then bag is adorable.

fectoglen said...

Just adorable~
I wish I had the time to be as clever as you!

Retro Gal said...

Just found your blog today and I am hooked. I started my own not too long ago and I hope I can get 500 posts one day! Anyways, this crayon craft is wonderful. I remember being a kid and taking crayons in the car only to have my mom find them melted to the floor the next day. I think this crayon organizer will do a great job of preventing that. Good work :)
