Well that 2nd link may explain my Japanese obstetrician's obsession with ultrasounds.... entertainment!

The toilet paper roll sculptures are very neat.

Are there any of those pregnancy dolls left that won't beat my bank account to death? I'm getting ideas for a shoot...

Is it me or do several of those toilet paper roll sculptures resemble George W. Bush? Perhaps there's a correlation.

You can make snowflakes from toilet paper tubes. These are pretty and every pair looks different!

I'm amused that the bog roll faces look like bog people. Boggling bogles.

Here's some accidental, on purpose stuff. Things that fall over.

I made a lot of my own molds for my soap company. Amongst them were molds that I made from my son's hands...so we made hand soap. He thought it was the grooviest thing ever to be able to use an "extra hand" in the bathtub.
