A little tp pumpkin ~ Free in your toilet paper bag

Yes, once again my obvious 'use what you have' theme
seems to lead me to the bathroom. ;) 
Toilet paper tubes the free gift for crafters inside every toilet paper pack. :)  


I don't have much paint left these days but we had orange
 and so for fall this is what we came up with. 



My oldest duaghters nick name is 'Pumpkin' so it is fitting that she had the most fun with this project and she basically put together the 'pumpkin patch center piece'.




I will be saving these little pumpkins for Thanksgiving place cards I think. :) 


The pumpkin or tp tube could have said:
Mom is that you?
So are we distance cousins?
But your so short and stumpy?
I am sure I could go on... I will stop though.
*What would you of said?

Cardboard love posts: In the next few bits (that is my non committal way) I will be posting a series called Cardboard Love series.  I have a series of 5 to 6 projects where cardboard was the king and proved to help me create some fun toys, learning aids and crafts.  I really look forward to sharing these with you. I would love to do a linky party for just cardboard projects during this series of posts but truth is that probably will NOT happen. :) We shall see. So be looking for some Cardboard love.

Moments of reflection: Contentment is a practice that daily I must choose.  Joy is a practice that comes from a heart of gratitude in the little and the lot.  I love you dear heavenly Father for your kindness and wisdom that keeps me away from self-pity, discontentment and bitterness. Contentment and joy are beautiful jewels that I want to wear around my neck.





I HAVE LEARNED THE SECRET OF BEING CONTENT IN ANY AND EVERY SITUATION, WHETHER WELL FED OR HUNGRY, WHETHER LIVING IN PLENTY OR IN WANT. I CAN DO EVERYTHING THROUGH HIM WHO GIVES ME STRENGTH." PHIL. 4:12,13

Cute little pumpkins! What a great idea to share some cardboard craft love! We throw out so many cereal and other food boxes - it would be good to have some more ideas as to what we could do with them instead!

Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a great week!
