We’re going to hop right into the year of the rabbit with a lucky giveaway from Earth Grown Crayons, a fun new business focused on all natural, earth friendly soy crayons, tinted with non-toxic pigments in designs that celebrate earth’s treasures. Melissa, the creator behind Earth Grown Crayons is offering a Welcome 2011 Year of the Rabbit set and a Good-bye Year of the Tiger soy crayon set to celebrate Chinese New Year which began on February 3. Melissa’s shop is filled with crayons any child would treasure-it would almost be a shame to use them they are so pretty! Pictured above are the Walley fish, sea turtles, and my absolute favorite, the big blue whale. Melissa shared a little bit about her business with us & in keeping with our Handmade Here theme, a list of some talented Minnesota crafters. Melissa is also offering a 25% discount to OMHG readers for the month of February using the code OMHG25 at checkout.
About Melissa & Earth Grown Crayons
I live in beautiful Minnetonka, Minnesota with my husband and three children. I enjoy reading, running, and spending time outdoors. Besides making crafts, I am a reading teacher and have a passion for finding well-written and beautiful illustrated children’s books.
My soy crayons are inspired by my love for animals and other living things. Why soy crayons? Soy is an all-natural, renewable resource that is one-hundred percent biodegradable – making it an earth-friendly choice for kids. Soy beans have been a part of my life since I can remember. Growing up I spent time on my grandparents farm in rural Minnesota. I watched my grandpa plant and harvest soy beans in the fields behind his farm. Now, many years later, I’m making my own creations from soy.
I love all things natural and earth friendly. My favorite local Minnesota crafters include:
Julie Meyer – reusable lunch and snack bags, Mirasol Farm – organic soap/ bath products, Beeper Bebe – plush toys using recycled materials, Crafterall – lovely paper creations, Kellybot – beautiful recycled jewelry
I LOVE the rabbits! These would be great (much better than candy) in my children’s Easter baskets!

lovely! i think the penguins are super… looks like they’d fit so nicely in a small hand. i’m curious, though… what do the colors look like on paper? bright or subtle? smooth or clumpy?
