The Melted Crayon


Life isn’t about how many breaths you take but about the moments that take your breathe away.

The Idea

Did you ever accidentally leave your crayons out in the heat?  I did as a child and was surprised and amazed how the colors ran together to make new colors and textures. My hope with this business is to bring together different great items to create unique product opportunities and gift sets for you. Thus the name: The Melted Crayon. 


Style & Quality

I have been in the business of kids for 20 plus years. I am a teacher by day and a creator by night. The spring my last two children were preparing to graduate from high school, I found myself dreading the empty house that was coming. That is when I decided it was time for me to start my own new chapter. I started this business by combining my two passions of children & sewing. I’ve always loved sewing - thanks to the influence of my great Aunt Dorothy and the encouragement of my mom. I started out just simply sewing kid’s aprons & bags and expanded into puppets and toys. I recently expanded into embroidery and vinyl design, which has added a wonderful new dimension to my business.
