STUMPED
------------
Lately I have been stumped about-
I feel like I am the odd one out -
even though I am feeling a bit blue
I draw the line at joining you
....

Actually - what happens to all the little pencils that we seem to overlook - till what size do you use yours before replacing it - as there's still some lead left in them -
I know of one person that uses these stumps in their garden to mark newly planted seeds -
It's as shame you can't put them all together in a pot and melt them down to a new pencil - like you do with candles.

Interesting idea!
And such a good point too! I, myself, end up tossing away pencils once they reach a certain stumped period, not as stumped as these though, they wouldn't do much for me =[
But I never considered using them for other purposes...hmmm

And holy crap! I never knew you could do that to candles!
Very, very awesome.

But oh! The photo! I like how you set them up and and how there's that one blue one too.
The white background fits well here too.
Nice job!

oh ... my little collection of pencils that have been gathering at my work desk.
Yeah - candle making is fun - just heat up your old stumps and add them all in a mold
and tatatataaa - one new slighty weird candle - (( remember to put a new wick in the middle ofcourse ))

Yeah - the blue one is cleary the odd one out - as in the other 2 images in the series -
it's my favourite 3B ... nice and soft -
Oh - background is just an A4 - handy - and good for the colour contrast-

Again - thnx for the nice comments and favs ----
