I'm sure I'm not the only person who gleefully browses Pinterest, pinning this and that, daydreaming about all those projects I'll create once I have some Free Time. Of course, Free Time is hard to come by these days, and Pinterest projects seem like a lot to ask of oneself when trying to think of something relaxing to do.
This is where having a helper comes in handy. No, not the sweet boyfriend who loves gardening and insisted we finally try one of the pins I showed him on my gardening board. The bunny, of course! This project involved toilet paper tubes, and Enid went bananas when she saw how many Tony was about to use.
Whoops! Never mention bananas in the presence of a bunny unless you mean business.
Well, OK, so I guess Tony comes in handy for calming the savage beast.
This was a really simple project. We made little seedling pots out of toilet paper tubes. You just cut the tube in half, snip about a half inch up all around the tube, fold down the little tabs you make, and tuck the last tab under the first tab. Voila!
If you can't find your scissors, you can always use your teeth.
And you never know what kind of inspiration will strike you while working on your project. You might come up with the next ingenious pin! Or not...
I'll leave it up to that super-helpful, gardening-loving boyfriend to grow food. I used all of my seedling pots to get a head start on my dyers garden. Let's hope some of my seeds sprout!
