felted boxes...

a few people asked so i wanted to show you what we use the felted boxes for - our block beeswax crayons. these beautiful felted boxes were custom made for me by my friend, leah (kneek), over at spider felt. i specifically asked for these color combinations so we could separate our stockmar block crayons into these four color groupings - reds/oranges, yellows, greens/blues, purples/violets. they are quite a handy way to store the crayons and make clean up a breeze. and didn't leah do a wonderful job?  thanks, leah!



yours in felted goodness,

shelley

Hey Shelly,
wonderful idea. I was thinking about how to store our crayons and now I know. Very inspiring. Thanks a lot. And thanks a lot for that photo of your first waldorf figures :)

those felted boxes are beautiful shelley. what a pleasure for maya to clean up the art table with such tools at hand. it inspires me to make my own storage of necessary items more pleasing to the senses.
