{what happened to the crayons?}

just in case anyone was actually wondering what became of these crayons...

i pencil sharpened them to death, and then pressed the shavings between pieces of waxed paper with an iron...

then i cut them into hearts...

Photobucket
then i sewed all of the hearts together...

and now they hang in the front window, casting funny shadows on the walls.
