from a box of crayons

Crayons are neat. They're fun. They're colorful. They're cute. They're.....a lot of things, and I love 'em :) Recently, we bought a rather large box of them for the younger folks (and older folks :P) to use for school. Crayola has been putting out some pretty wacky colors lately, and I was amusing myself by reading the names on them the other day, and filling up a sheet with "color samples".

When out of the blue (forgive the pun)....I saw.....

Now what do you think of that?!?!?!


  1. Oh, wow, that is so cool! :) I love crayons...and I'm 18. Hmmm.

  2. Haha...that's funny. :P I love all the different names. I mean, who would've thought of the name 'bittersweet' or 'mountain meadow'??

  3. Ahhh, crayons... Been collecting them all my life. I have scented ones, glitter ones, fat ones, old ones, new ones, ones with no labels, homemade ones (made with my very own Crayola crayon factory!), gel ones, restaraunt crayons, giant ones, and all colors you can think of! I haven't bought any recently, so I haven't had the pleasure of all the new names, but I think I just might buy some soon... :) Please note that I am a FOURTEEN YEAR OLD TEENAGER and I adore crayons. As Shaynie said, "Hmmm." LOL


  4. GA! You ruined a little something I was going to send you! Than has what he calls his "Mama's mustang blue" which is after the color of Mom's dream mustang. This is HIS special crayon and he uses if for everything. The day before we started school, I was cleaning out the pencil boxes and put all the specialty ones in the main crayon box. Than was devastated when he went to do something and his "Mama Mustang Blue" was missing. I started going through our HUGE box of crayons pulling out every possible shade of blue and finally found one called Wild Blue Yonder which Than said was the right one. So I decided that I would have to send you a WBY crayon...but now you know:D

    As for crayons in general, I agree! Nothing is as beautiful as a box of brand new crayons. Or, to quote You've Got Mail, "a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils."

  5. WOW!! Wild Blue Yonder is such a cool lookin' color!!! I LOVE it! :)

    Giving GOD the Glory!

  6. "A box of new crayons! Now they're all pointy, lined up in order, bright and perfect. Soon they'll be a bunch of ground down, rounded, indistinguishable stumps, missing their wrappers and smudged with other colors. Sometimes life seems unbearably tragic." ~Bill Watterson

    *I thought this quote was super funny! I love crayons!* :)

  7. Ooh. I love that blue!
    I used to have a box like that what i was younger.
    P.S. I just could not resist:D ... LOL, Nana my dream car is a blue mustang as well.
