On a roll: Mama Loves

It started several months ago with this pin:

From that point on, I began hoarding toilet paper rolls. Yes, if it meant saving a roll, I had no problem digging through the trash can if I discovered Marty had inadvertently thrown away my latest craft supply.

And, then, as with many of my best-intentioned Pins, my plans were flushed down the drain from the swish of daily life with twin two-year olds.


the Babies came home from school with their 'noculars.


For days, the 'noculars were the IT toy around our house.

And, just like that, I was on Pinterest inspired again.

Oh, the ideas...

We could paint.

Which would go great with this idea:

Or for my Emily Bee...

Creative, but not sure how the recipient would feel about candy in a toilet paper roll...

I could even make something for me:

Oh, this is pretty:

Nice! I have a whole stash of TP and paper towel rolls as well. As were were packing up some things to de-clutter, since we put the house on the market, the hubs asked if we needed to pack up the those. I said---yes, of course! You just never know when we might need them for a craft :) Ha!

Great to have you linking up this week, Melissa! :)

I always love your Pinterest posts!

And I have to laugh, thinking about what a nut my hubby would consider me if I started saving rolls of TP. Of course I'd have to fight the girls for so makes their day to take those to the recycle bin. ;)
