I gave a bunch to my mom for Mother's Day (she actually used one of them as a "doily" on the coffee table) and then stacked up the rest on the kitchen table (I don't have any counter space, really). That way, when I needed one, I could just grab it!

I really do need to make a few more, though...

Thanks for such a detailed response! I'm glad you said you machine sewed the signatures. It makes the task seem less daunting Wink

I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for a neat kids book that I can dismantle...with love of course!

Can't wait to see you next one!

I really like the graphic look of your planner! I also like how you laid out the pages on the inside. What size is it? And did you print on both sides of the page?

Did you keep the cover of the book intact, and just glue in pages that you had printed out? Or did you cut the covers apart, sew in the pages and then bind it all together again?

I really need a decent planner for school this year- I saw a really cute one at Barnes & Noble but the inside was just not going to work. I love the idea that I can print out my own pages!

The fabric on those pouches is adorable! They came out so cute!

And, I just realized that I forgot to photograph what I sent before I sent it! Ack! I hate when I do that...

Yay! She made it safely Smiley  I'm glad you like her.

I love her! I'm a bit of an astronomy geek, so the stars are right up my alley! And, I love the stitching around her face. So neatly done- I  hope mine come out as nice!

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!
