Old Crayons Made New Again

I saw this on Pinterest once and had to pin in on my "trying this" board.

All over our house we have cans of broken crayons. Must be the pack rat in me. they are still usable so there is no need to throw them out right!? 

Well my hubs disagrees, so I knew this would be right up his alley. Being that I can't seem to throw out old muffin tins pans either, I had a few of them laying around too ;-)

The boyz had a blast peeling off the paper, well the babies any way, my oldest was handing out rewards to the one that shoved the most crayons into one muffin cup. 

Of course there was a mess to clean up!

Once all the poor, warn out, and broken crayons were in their place, I tossed them into the oven at 350degrees until they were thoroughly melted.

The boyz LOVED watching them slowly melt away

I have to admit it was pretty cool

Once they were cooled I was able to pop them out onto the counter, however if you have trouble stick them in the freezer for a couple of mins first.

The Boys can't wait to do it again...........breaking crayons left and right, UGH!!! :-)
Needles to say this is one project that is not pinned to my "did this" board ;-)

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
