Crayon Awesomeness

Sorry for the radio silence on Friday…I was en route to Palm Springs for the most amazing crafting weekend put on by Kimmel Kids. More on that later.

I grew up with a crayon-obsessed mother. She would always buy anniversary “collector” sets in triplicate; one for me, one for my sister, and one for herself. Apparently, these collectibles would make us rich one day…I should really look into cashing those Crayolas in! Now for some impressive crayon finds…


Steve Von Worley created this chart which shows the  evolution of Crayola’s crayon box colors over time. We definitely now live in the generation of options. Found via Black Eiffel.




Deciding which images to show from Chrisian Faur‘s amazing oeuvre was really tough. These are incredible. No need to say more.


These crayons were carved into the symbols of the 12 Chinese zodiac signs. Found via The Bored Ninja.
