Pop a top and grab a roll

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was jammed packed. Then yesterday was Mr. Ink’s Uncle Art’s funeral. It was a very nice service but a super long day.

So is everyone gearing up for Valentine’s day? Sam and I have been brainstorming ideas for his Valentines. Mr. Ink said they could not be girlie! LOL! Then I started to think about what I was going to give Mr. Ink for Valentines day. My friend Chelsea showed me a link to a mini book. I thought this would be perfect little gift for him. Of course I can find the link how to the book. But the book was made with toliet paper  rolls. Of course this is perfect since every time I go into the bathroom I find the empty roll!!!! I also thought about what else my beloved Mr. Ink leaves behind that I have to pick up. The one think I can count on is picking up his Mt. Dew cans. I love this project since it is very GREEN 🙂
