You’ll think I’m crazy (and you’re probably right! lol) but I have a dedicated shelf in my craft cabinet for toilet paper rolls. They take up so much space as I collected so many in the last few months but never had enough time to use them all. I do have a nice home decor project in mind, but time is not my friend! Until then, I’ll settle for smaller projects like these kids spy binoculars.
