I sent and received today, too! Next week, I'll be doing a test run of my idea on some of my own undies, and if all goes well, I'll get started! If not, I'll have to think of another plan...

  Interesting idea, I would love to have bottles of green in the winter time but I have one point to make...moss like all living things requires oxygen and I see that the jars are sealed, is the moss doing okay without air?  or do you open them frequently enough that it is not an issue?
    ps I like the caterpillar!

Good point. I'm definitely no expert on moss and just made these terrariums based on instructions I found online. I read somewhere that oxygen for some plants can come in the form of dissolved oxygen in water. I don't know how creditable that fact is or if that applies to moss too.  I guess I'll just wait and see if my moss dies. Trial and error! heh

Okay, here's the science teacher in me coming out... Wink

Plants, including moss, take in carbon dioxide and produce oxygen during the process of photosynthesis. This oxygen will be released into the air. When plants need to get energy for cell functions, they use the process of cellular respiration (which is the opposite process of photosynthesis and is what we do). So, they'll use up some of the oxygen they produce and produce carbon dioxide which they'll release into the air. In a closed environment, it's pretty self-sustaining. Plants produce more oxygen than they need, so they should be all set!

Okay, end of science lesson...quiz on Monday Wink

Oh my goodness! I'm so sad that you've finished! They are all so adorable!

If I had to pick a favorite, I think it might be Quinn, but only because I think his hair is a riot, and because he bears a strong resemblance (in physical appearance and in career) to a family friend!

But, they are all so fabulous!

I still do want to do the CAL, I just haven't had the time I thought I'd have this summer. I definitely have a few ideas all lined up, though!

I received an adorable dotee from teachingjonah today! Her name is Rae and she has the sweetest little face! She's made of a beautiful batik fabric and is covered with little stars and beads. I love her!



Thanks, teachingjonah!

Okay, I never did wash them the other night, so I'm doing that today, and then heading to the PO. Hopefully as soon as they come out of the dryer!

Oh, man! I've fallen way behind! I have to post my June (just as soon as I finish weaving in the ends) and then I still have July (07 and 08!) to do! But, after Wednesday, I should be able to tackle them... slowly but surely!

I love how many characters Sarcastra has come up with using one basic form. I can't wait to see the rest of them!

And, on my dotee, the charms are actually buttons!

I can't wait to hang all of mine together! I think I might steal/borrow/copy/sincerely-imitate this idea from panda in Round 1: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=250388.msg2831170;topicseen#msg2831170

So fun!

I love the caterpillar and the owls, plus the apples- they give it a nice burst of color!

I have been planning to make one of these (I've heard them referred to as 'Winter Gardens'), but I've been doing "research" on them. Nothing like just going out there and grabbing a clump of moss, though! Since it grows abundantly in my yard, I have a readily available supply.

A note about the potting soil, though- make sure it doesn't have any fertilizer in it! The Miracle Grow brand contains fertilizer. And, I've read that it's a bad idea to open them up once you've sealed the container because it throws off the environment (unless it's looking bone dry and you need to add a bit of H2O!).

Thanks for re-igniting my desire to make one of these!

Yay! I got the coolest doll from Sarcastra today (and she even included a piece of fabric with the pattern so I could make him an accomplice  Cheesy ). She based her idea on my love of cop and detective shows.

Prisoner Dotee #0142130


And the dangly bits are chains, and beads with a police car charm and a saw charm (handy for jail breaks!)

Thanks Sarcastra! I love it!
