Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Crayon Lipstick

Puddin Pop has recently enjoyed watching some DIY make up videos.
She cam to me with an idea, a couple weeks back, to male Crayon Lipstick.  Sounded a little strange to me but, what could it harm?
She said all we needed were crayons and coconut oil.
A week went by before I was somewhere that sold coconut oil, I'm sure other products would work but, she was in charge of this project so, I wanted to make sure every thing was just as she planned.

We took a teaspoon of the oil and 1 unwrapped crayon.  We put it in a ceramic cup and put that in some hot water... so as not to burn the wax.  It was very quick to melt.

We ended up with 3 shades.  I used a little more oil in the blue... to subdue the color.  It actually turned out more like a gloss than a lipstick... which I, honestly, prefer.

I think thy turned out well.

Less oil provides a bolder color and "harder" product.

A simple project that was lots of fun.  Letting her be in charge... Priceless.
