Photo Challenge Week Six: February 5th to February 11

So here we are at the end of week six already...that means to date I have intentionally taken for this challenge 42 pictures.  That's pretty insane, and also the longest I have ever stuck with a photo challenge. YAY ME!!!

That was my week's worth of photos.  I know I am a touch behind on posting my pictures but I have found it easy to keep up on taking them.  Even if that means getting up last minute to take a picture of something random because I am sick and just realized I forgot like last night.

The prompts for week seven are:

Evie The Crayon Creator Blog Tour

Evie is 5 years old and has a dream of going to Disneyworld. When begging and pleading didn’t work Evie started on a new plan to make her dream come true… she started a business! Now she is saving her money while making crayons and selling them on Etsy!

From Evie: The first crayons I made were just a homework project with my mom. I wanted a dino birthday party and my mom said she would help me make decorations. We made dino art to put up on the walls, dino invitations and dino favors. The favors were little dinosaur crayons that my mom helped me poor into a mold. After the birthday party some of my friends wanted more. So we made more... and more... and more... and then my mom helped me put them with dinosaur books in my grandpa's shop. I sold so many that I went to the store with my mom and bought new shapes to make and we ordered molds for those shapes too. 

Now I sale them on my mom's site (Etsy store) that we share. Now my mom helps me cut the papers and I take the papers off the crayons, melt them, and put them into the molds (with a little help from mom or dad). I get half the money I make to spend on things I want; right now I am saving for Disneyworld. The other half goes into my college fund for when I'm a grown up. If you have broken crayons you want to let me use I would be really happy to recycle them (that's a big word mom taught me) into new shapes to make kids happy everywhere! You can send them to my grandpa's shop the address is on the Contact Us page, or if you want crayons for your kids or projects you can send me a request or buy some off the store my mom and I share here...
