    Earth Day is special to me because I have 4 kiddos I love sharing nature with! We do our part in many ways, but one is our small cloth diapering business, ZooNique Baby. πŸ™‚

    Earth Day is, in part, special to me because it's my hubby's birthday. But, it's become more special now that we have a daughter to share our love for nature and the earth with. We look forward to showing her what the world means to us and hopefully watch her grow into her own little tree hugging self!

    This is a fantastic giveaway. I found you from Betz.
    Earth Day is a day to be reminded what we hope to live…a greener lifestyle filled with natural materials in our home, real food in our bellies, and responsible and sustainable consumption. It is a wonderful day to celebrate the progress of everyone, and be inspired by others. This year we are getting the plastics out of our life. So far this has been a difficult task…but we are working on it! happy Earth day.
    BTW, I have been looking for "car" fabrics for my son's quilt (which is still in my head…) yours are perfect!

    I like Earth Day because it reminds people that we can make a difference with the choices we make. I am trying to stop buying cheap clothing that has to be thrown away after a season. I am trying to buy from responsible manufacturers and I'm also making my own clothes so they will last for years!

    I've enjoyed Earth Day products as of late…I love that there are options to buy "green" toys for my boys, and "green" fabrics and cleaners to use in my home that won't harm us and still keep our planet a little cleaner.

    I would be so excited to win! This fabric line would make a perfect quilt for my July baby! πŸ˜‰

    Love this. I'm a follower and liked you on facebook. Nobody really follows my tweets so it really doesn't count as much.

    And this year for Earth Day I'm building raised beds to have a better chance and growing something edible in my vege garden. (The last couple of years have been less than awesome. But I am determined this year. And I'm doing sheet composting, which means no bagged soil.)

    I will tweet this! I will add you on face book!
    Earth day is very important everyday. I have children and 1 grandchild. Our planet is our home we need to care for her! I have a garden and am starting a compost pile this year!

    I feel Earth day is a day to realize that our actions, (even small ones), make a difference to the world around us. From picking up our trash, to using reusable grocery bags, to utilizing natural pest controls instead of insecticides. Every little bit that we do can, and will make a difference.

    Earth Day is special to me because I love plants, gardening, and wilderness. I'm continuing with my efforts to not buy anything new unless I absolutely cannot make do with something I already have, or can buy second hand, and by trying to buy mostly in season foods, grown as locally as is reasonable. This requires more patience and thinking, but is a great penny saver too. I think its about balance – you don't have to give up your lifestyle, you just have to change how you achieve it.

    It's cheesy, but every day is earth day for me. I filled up my car's gas tank in January … and it's still half full. I bike, buy all used clothes, grow some of my own food, etc. I just wish the mainstream world would care more about the state of our fragile marble — and not just on earth day. Sometimes it's hard to keep up the enthusiasm, though seeing more and more fabric companies going to organic cotton is certainly motivating for this quilter.

    Down under in Australia today it is an unseasonably warm 27 degrees celcius, so I am walking to the beach with my 3 year old daughter for a splash and some shell foraging. What better way to celebrate Earth Day! The fabrics are beautiful and have just become a follower via RSS feeds. Thankyou, Pam x

  • Hi, my name is Judy.

    Earth Day this year is about giving away a lot of our extra things via Freecycle. We are moving next week, and the more we reduce, the less waste we make in the move. Keeping our still good mattress, diaper pail etc out of the landfill just helps everyone out.
    PS- I posted links to your upcoming fabric line on a couple FB submarine wives groups. I love submarine fabric for my future submariner toddler!

    For Earth Day, I'm staying home and sewing (what a sacrifice, right?) But seriously, I'm very careful to limit my driving to what's absolutely necessary and mapping out my errands so I can knock out a bunch of "to do's" at once. Earth Day should be celebrated everyday, but it is a good reminder to take care of our mother earth.

    Earth day is to remind us to live responsibly. We should never take clean air, water, or any other natural resource for granted.

    Earth Day is important for me as it means lots of people coming together and having fun while working to help the community and the environment.

    I'm doing my part by working on using fewer resources at home – turning off everything I can, using less heat, using less water, re-using more items, making things myself instead of buying, etc. Love the "Freeze Yer Buns Off" challenge!

    Oh, and I did all 3 of the extra items – follow, like, and tweet!

    As simple as it is, Earth Day is special for me because it is a day that the global conscience is all about our home and preserving it. I want to make a difference this year by not drinking bottled water anymore. I am a follower and I'll get my mother hooked too; she loves quilting. About to like it all on FB.

    Thanks for the giveaway! I'm using this Earth Day as a reminder to take stock of my daily habits–using reusable shopping bags, taking a cup to work instead of using styrofoam. Little things that hopefully add up!

    Thanks for the chance to win your fabulous, eco-friendly fabric…which I LOVE!!! The prints are just so amazing!
    Earth day should be everyday! I try and make a difference in any way that I can every day, but today I actually got to take my daughter's entire kindergarten class on a nature walk for fun AND to pick up the garbage that people had left behind. It was a great opportunity to talk to the children about why it is important to keep our earth clean and our bodies healthy. Kids are like sponges and the earlier they learn, the more they are aware. It was a great day!

    On the very first Earth Day, took my babies and the dog to the park to join a community New Game, rolling a huge earth ball maybe 6 feet diameter around and throwing earth frisbies and singing Simon and Garfunkle. Since then, always plant a new tree(s). This year called the tree man, Peter, to groom and strengthen a 100 foot ash tree we got from the Arbor Foundation about 25 years ago as a take-home from kindergarten twig on Earth Day. My children and their cousins think it's some sort of religious holiday. (Which, of course, it is.)

    I am so happy to have found your fabric…I have been spending night after night trying to find organic and hand printed fabric that would be great for all of my current projects (and some more that I am going to think up after I finish entering all these giveaways!)

    Thanks for the chance to win your fantastic fabric! Tomorrow I plan to take care of the Earth by doing the little things I am trying to make routine; unplugging things that aren't in use (TV, computer, mixer), putting on a sweater instead of turning up the heat, turning off lights, not running extra water. If I can make these things routine, then I can really make a difference.

    Earth Day is a chance for us to even out some of that bad karma and do something nice for the earth for a change. It's a reminder to us that it *does* matter when we go to the trouble to recycle that bottle instead of putting it in the trash because it's easier. This Earth Day I think I'll try to talk my boss into doing more recycling at work! Thanks for the giveaway — the fabric is so adorable.!

    Earth Day is always a special day for me, because I work with children birth to five years. We plant seeds, walk barefoot outside, feel the sun and breeze on our skin, and smell the dirt. We pick up special rocks, admire and smell daffodils blooming, feel the rain on our faces and stomp in mud puddles if that's the weather. We compost our food scraps and unbleached paper towels for our garden. We recycle our yogurt cups. We listen to the birds call and find tiny insects in the grass. I know how lucky I am to see the Earth through the fresh eyes of children every day.

    Earth day is special to us this year, as my husband is in a line of work where the banks want him to throw everything in the dump. He has worked hard, and hundreds of extra hours to make this process more earth friendly, finding ways to recycle, or give these items to those in need instead of heaping them in land fills. Insteaed of letting the government run banks take a back seat approach, I admire him for going the extra mile and educating his clients in other ways of doing "business as usual"!

    It is actually not earth day that is important but every single day on which one should make a difference. Earth day is a reminder that we shouldn't just destroy everything around us but rather live with it.

    Happy Earth Day to you,
    Happy Earth Day to you,
    Happy Earth Day dear planet,
    Happy Earth Day to you!

    We spent the day in a park, running through the grass, playing frisbee and enjoying mother nature before the weather becomes to wintery.

    My kids live in hand-me-downs, we always use both sides of paper and recycle the paper (and everything else) when it's ready to leave our house.

    Earth Day is now more important to me because I've become a countryside walker, and the greens of England don't exist anywhere else. We should work to keep the green alive for future generations to go walking in and breathe the fresh clean air.

    It is important because most people don't care about what's going on with our planet. And to have at least one day to think and care about it I think is a great start.
    This year I am going to a park near my house and enjoy those beautiful trees and flowers.
    Thanks for the chance.

    Love these fabrics! We've recently installed solar panels to heat our hot water to reduce the amount of electricity that we use. We heat our home using a wood boiler so that we don't have to use oil and I'm also putting in a large vegetable garden this year so I can grow my own veggies and freeze what we don't eat so we can have them over the winter months. Every day is earth day in our house!

    We live on such a beautiful planet, and it should be Earth Day every day. I try to re-cycle as much as possible, and encourage those around me to do the same. We should also teach the rising generation to appreciate and respect the environment by not littering, and not defacing our natural surroundings. I would love to get the chance to use such beautiful fabrics.

    Earth Day is the essence of my job, but EVERY day. I work at a Quaker school that has great interest in environmental sustainability, in fact, I'm in charge of maintaining our membership in a lot of the sustainability initiatives that we have joined. I also happen to love sewing, of which numerous kids are familiar. Instead of just recycling old clothes to refashion into new ones, I'd love to be able to create several outfits to show the kids that "crunchy" doesn't have to equal drab and that sustainable doesn't have to mean old and pilly!

    I feel very strongly that we should take good care of the earth. I live in New York City, and I am constantly appalled at the way people treat the environment here. My husband and I find ourselves picking up trash off of the street whenever we see it, removing dangerous items from the sidewalk, like broken glass. This weekend our church is hosting a neighborhood cleanup project, which my husband organized as a result of the trash that litters our streets. I will definitely be participating!

    Earth Day is special to me to see the appreciation fostered in my children. My 6 yr old daughter was happy to announce that we help the Earth by walking to school. She asked if we could plant a tree so we will do that today! My 2 yr old son will enjoy digging in the dirt too! I would like their generation to be able to enjoy the beauty, peace, and awe that nature has inspired in me!

    I always go yeah for Earth day because I love trees, I just love them. And what I do everyday is use cold water for my laundry, never hot to help save energy and use a great locally made non-toxic, biodegradable laundry detergent.

    I try my best to be green everyday, but Earth Day makes some of the "less aware" folks I know stop and think about their actions…

    I try to be 'green' everyday, but Earth Day is a good reminder to get back on track with some of the things I may have started to get lazy with… like using reusable containers for snacks and lunch instead of plastic bags.

    I love that whale fabric!

    Earth Day is just another day dedicated to a better awareness of living a more sustainable lifestyle. We don't want our kids to be punished for our mistakes and it makes for a healthier community and healthier world. I am going to recycle and use a reusable water bottle. No more plastic bags either!

    It's a gorgeous day up here in the Pacific Northwest. When my husband gets home from work, we're going on a walk with our two little boys.

    Earth day is special because it has reminded me that I have been meaning to make a whole lot of reusable grocery bags for shopping at the store. I would make bags that prevent plastic grocery bags from harming wildlife like birds and rabbits, when they are in the landfill those bags actually kill wildlife and because the plastic does not degrade they are terrible for the environment! I would love to make pretty bags from your fabrics that inspire other shoppers to do the same when they see me using them

    I think that Earth Day is the perfect opportunity to show the world our concerns about environment and especially how everyone can change a bit their habits to live a more eco-friendly life. I try my best, even though I can still do better! Whenever it is possible I leave the car at home and walk or drive with my bike, at home we have special bins for garbage (so we can separate paper from plastic, etc.) and I make little projecta with recycled materials for me and my friends (for exemple I decorate frames with pieces of broken cds, I make pouches from old billboard I get from the cinema I worked for, etc.). Sorry for the looong comment! I hope everyone will treat our planet with care for the future generations!
    Ah, I almost forgot! With the fabric I would like to make a little shopping bag and/or some pouches/dawnstring bags!

I want our son to know that not only are these things more cost effective, they are more environmentally friendly as well. We are celebrating tonight by having a special dinner, which will all be used in leftovers (less garbage!) for lunches for tomorrow. (using meal planning!)

    Earth day is special to me because it's a time to reflect on what you are doing to make an impact on the world around you. I can't say that I'm doing something particularly different today, as we try to make each day more environmentally friendly, but I'll say today we are making a point of printing on both sides of paper!

    I'm of a certain age where I'm thinking more of what kind of world I'm leaving my son, and what ever grandchildren I might be blessed with. I try hard to be conscientious each day, but Earth Day is like New Year's Day. It's a time for reflection and renewing a commitment to doing the right thing. It's a day to think, "What else can I be doing? What new habit can I adopt that might help the planet?"

    Earth day is special to me because it represents how far our society has come; recognizing the need to change, and believing in a sustainable future.

    Today I am making plans for the planting of my new fruit and vegetable garden! This summer I will have homegrown, fresh and local foods to eat. Hopefully more people will have this option to eliminate the pesticides on their food and in the soil and reduce food production associated GHGs. The garden will be a quiet place for inspiration.

    Earth Day should be important to all people all over the world. We need to take care of our planet so it will be around for our children and their children and for years to come. I recycle, reuse, and repurpose everything I can. I also use 100% cotton and batting in all my quilts. I love this fabric too!

    Oh my!!Those are some CUUUUUTE fabrics!!
    The thing that makes Earth Day so special for me is how excited my boys get about "cleaning up the Earth".
    We spend a part of that day picking up trash around our neighborhood as a way to make the Earth "pretty". πŸ™‚

    i love how the whole world truly comes together for this one greater cause. it isn't one of those important issues we skim over b/c the topic is too heady or "out of my hands". seeing everyone making their pledges and commitments is inspiring

    1st-became a follower and facebook'd you…yeah! 2nd- love it! fabrics are very inspiring. Earth Day is a great way to remind me to help my 7 children keep on keeping on taking care of this earth for their own children. Today we are starting our seeds in egg cartons…growing our veggies organically helps us to keep chemicals out our bodies and out of the Chesapeake Bay here in MD. We're planting tomatoes and our lettuces today. Thanks! ~anna fogg, annafogg1@aol.com

    Earth Day is a wonderful day to celebrate our planet – but I try to treat every day like Earth Day and to tread lightly in all that I do. One of the things I do is to make as much clothing etc as I can. Your fabric is gorgeous and I can think of many projects to use it for!!

    earth day reminds us that less is more sometimes, and that mindless consumption of all we can get our hands on is bad for every one. with that said, i really do need some fabric from the marine collection in my life. πŸ˜‰

    Earth Day is special to me as I recall being in NYC for the very first Earth Day in Washington Square down in Greenwich Village. I was in the apparel industry then and the rage was "man made fibers." I am so happy to see organics gaining in popularity now.

    earth day is a fabulous opportunity to teach my two sons (4 & 2 years old) about our precious earth & build on their "training" when it comes to their chore at home which is sorting the recycling for mum πŸ™‚

    happiest of earth days and thanks for the lovely giveaway!

    Earth Day is important because it makes people think about the environment more than they would have otherwise. I try to do whatever I can to make a difference like re-using "disposable" items & conserving energy and gas. Most importantly, I try to pass on my ideals to my children.

    I actually try not to treat Earth Day as special – I try to be conscious of the environmental impact of my actions year round and celebrate seasonal events rather than a particular day.

    Today I worked in the garden, and I think it helps make a difference to grow our own food.

    I live on a farm where conservation is key to sustainable agriculture and making a living. Every day is Earth Day for us. We recycle lots of items: envelopes for note paper, milk jugs/coffee containers for gardening/composting , plastic bakery trays for kitchen, lightly used wrapping paper/ribbons, pass along plants, rooting plants and trees from cuttings, manure from the field, family garden (then turn cows out into the garden once is finished). We have lots of items made from reclaimed "stuff" from the dump. And, we save all our fabric scraps for quilts. Organic gardening goes along with organic fabric!

What I'd really like to do is find a way to help clean up the oceans of all the devastating plastic that is killing the sea life and choking the seas. We need to do anything and everything we can to conserve and not pollute.

    Earth Day is special, but if we want to make a real change everyday needs to be Earth day. Today, I made an extra effort to make my shower even shorter, and I took the opportunity to talk to my 3 year old about taking care of the place we live.

    The new fabrics look absolutely amazing. Thank you for doing your part to ensure that more fun organic fabrics are available — it's really exciting!

    Earth Day acts as a nice reminder to reflect on what we are already doing to tread lightly on our amazing planet, and as a prompt to dig deeper and think of what more we can do. This year, some time was spent preparing for our first vegetable garden. So much fun!

    earth day is important to me because I want to see a time when you can go to the park and not worry about trash. I have 2 kids that I am trying to lead, by example, and teach to recycle and reuse. Even an old shirt can have a purpose in the house:).

    Being a mom now makes Earth day so much more special. My boy helped to clean a local park and brought home a seedling to watch it grow. It's nice to see another generation getting involved… no matter how little they are to start.

    Every day I wake up on this planet is Earth day! I'm glad we have a sanctioned "day" however so our environmental issues can be brought into the open- remind all inhabitants of Earth how fragile our environment really is and how consciously we must live our lives day to day to protect and preserve.

    Earth Day reminds us all to pay attention to Mother Earth and to do our part to protect/save it. For me this means picking up garbage when I hike, recycling, limiting the use of natural resources to what I really need, remembering to use cloth bags instead of paper and plastic, and helping to educate others.

    Earth Day is important to me bc I want my children to grow up in a beautiful green world, not one filled with trash, and pollution, and all of the harmful things that we have inherited to them. I hope to teach them how to make their world a better place not further the damage already done.

    Hi there, I'm following πŸ™‚ Earth day is special to me, because it sets aside a certain day where we can all focus on doing our best to help the environment. While, taking care of our planet should be something we do routinely, I think in the business of life some of us forget or don't take that extra special care. I know I've been guilty of not always bringing my canvas bags with me to the store, or being lazy and putting tin cans and jars in the trash instead of walking to the the recycle bin. Lately, though I've gone that extra step (with the extra prompting by my husband)

    People have become so disconnected from the natural world. Just yesterday I saw a bus taking a group of kids from the Mall of America after a fieldtrip, and it made my heart hurt. These kids should be going on trips to our state parks or at the very least, the zoo!

    I love Earth Day because (I hope) it brings the environment to everyone's attention, at least for one day. All the buzz about "being green" is like a background hum these days, but it's nice to have it front and center for a change.

    To celebrate we played outside as much as possible and ate foods that didn't come in plastic wrappers. πŸ™‚

    Earth Day is special because our lives and what we do effects all other living things in the ecosystem, not just humans. We don't get a second chance with Mother Earth. What am I doing? I take my lunch using a reusable sandwitch wrap that I made, and if i have to buy disposable cutlery I buy this brand that is compostable.

    For Earth Day, I am bad – I don't do lots special, but I do the basics everyday – recycle, reuse…plus we have only 1 car & walk/bike whenever the Michigan weather allows, so that helps. And my scrap fabric drawer is a testament to not throwing stuff away…now to find enough projects to make πŸ˜›

    Earth Day is important because it catches people in their busy lives and (hopefully) makes them pause and consider how their lifestyle is impacting the world around them. I spent earth day twittering eco-tips and looking into finding a composting service for the apartment building I live in (have to convince the property owner!).

    Earth Day is great 'cause it makes us all stop and rethink what our impact upon the earth equates to. By being mindful of what I purchase and throw away, of what I eat and what I grow, I try my hardest to be a good steward of the earth and teach my children the same.

    This Earth Day my roommates and I decided would only use canvas totes for grocery shopping instead of plastic bags! I think Earth tends to be one of those blessings we often overlook! What a great day to celebrate the beauty!

    Earth Day reminds me that it should be a daily observance for ALL of us – corporations as well as individuals. Our planet is so special, and has gotten so screwed up. On a local level, where I live is beautiful – if you can ignore the trash on the ground. Why can't people, at the very least, just do something simple like throw their trash in a can instead of out the window? I will step down from the soapbox now.

    Earth day is a great reminder to reduce, reuse, take care of the land and ourselves. We are trying to use and consume less and teach our children to do the same. Living in Vermont makes it easy to see the beauty of the Earth, but also to see what we might lose if we don;t take care of it. I will definitely make some reusable linens and bags if I were to win these gorgeous fabrics.

    Earth day isn't particularly important to me (I am not into special 'days') but taking care of the earth is important to me and my family because it is God's earth and He's given it to us to enjoy and take care of.

    We try to make a difference by reusing, recycling, composting, cloth diapering and more. We try to teach our children how to be good stewards of the earth.

    Very nice giveaway – thanks!

    Earth day is special to me because it shows just how mainstream 'saving the earth' has become. It gives me hope for the future generations.
    I am going to try to really educate my young children about the importance of being 'earth aware' so that things like minimizing waste, planting gardens, and appreciating animals, bugs and birds, will become second nature to them.

    Earth day is important to me because when I was a kid we watched a video in science saying that the oceans were going to dry out by the time we were in our 30s. Scared me half to death. I'm 26 and the oceans are still here and, while that video's claims may not have been backed by much, I can't help but wonder what the earth would have become by now if people hadn't gotten smarter about how to live. Green cars, organic everything, recycling…we're getting back to the basics these days and Earth Day is just a reminder of what's possible when we all work toward something together.

    Earth day is special to me when my kids can get involved and know how important it is to help clean the earth when they are only 7 and 5 1/2! Every helping hand counts! Thanks! Kerry

    We moved to a house that is centrally located in our city and are living completely car-less! Bikes, feet and bus for transportation. Good for the environment and good for our overall health.

    Earth Day Rocks…recently I've substituted paper lunch bags for shaking/coating my chicken or pork when cooking for the large, plastic, zip lock bags that I use to use. I can't take credit for this…I was watching Paula Dean one day making fried chicken and she put it into paper bags to coat it…how cool is that! One less plastic bag that does not decompose forever going into the landfills! Works for me πŸ˜€ Hope this helps some other blog/contest winners, Fondly, Roberta

    it would be nice to turn back the clock and take back all of our plastic garbage, but since we can't, at least we can try to make better choices in the present and future

    I remember Earth Day being a big deal to me since elementary school. My family doesn't just do something on this day for the earth but everyday. We use cloth diapers, recycle and re-use as much as possible, and use canvas shopping bags among other things.

    Earth Day is special to me because I got to participate in the first one (in the 70s) by planting some trees. I raised my kids to appreciate and respect the earth and they are now passing that on to their children

    Earth Day is important to me because it reminds me to teach my kids to take care of the world we live in — I'm lucky to live in a community that tried to keep things "green" so that these become every day lessons for my little ones! (p.s. I also "like" you on Facebook)

    I'm glad to learn of your company and how much of a difference buying organic cotton can make! We have recently become aware of the delights of growing some of our own food and striving to buy as much as we can from local farmers!

    Happy Earth Day! It's such a good way to remember how important it is to do our part in making it a better place to live. We've been teaching our 2 year old how to do our little part, such as conserving energy and recycling. Thank you for the generous giveaway!

    Earth day is important because I like to like living in a rural area where there is lots of natural beauty. We all have to take care of the earth if we want to have a future.

    Earth day means more to me now that I have children. I want to pass on the importance of getting back to earth. I grew up in a small town, but am raising my children in a city. We do what we can, growing some vegetables and walks in the "forest". I am more aware of how "nature" is not so natural anymore with genetic modifications, hormone injections, etc.
    I would love to feel your fabric. Thanks for sharing!

    I wish I could have LOVED you on Facebook, but I had to settle for Like! Earth Day is totally important to our family — we helped out at a city-wide cleanup day today and the kids have a newfound appreciation for how important recycling and avoiding littering.

    I didn't do anything special for earth day, but my husband and I are trying to teach our kids about the importance of caring for the earth. My 3 year old loves sorting the recycling and helping out in our vegetable garden.

    I grew up in a different country and when I first moved here when I was 16, I was shocked the level of recycling and reusing here in the US. Where I grew up, recycling and reusing is instilled when the kids are in preschool!!!! It is not an option, or get any money back. It is about the environment you live in!

    Why is Earth Day important to me? Because it shows, and reminds me on how I can personally contribute to protecting our environment and the health of people that live near and far. By informing myself, by being a conscious consumer. I love your initiative!

    Earth Day is important as we should not be living in a world so dominated by humans… the Iceland volcano has taught us that – Gaia is bigger than us and we must respect her. The stopping of all air travel in the UK and other parts of Europe must be something we learn from – that the environment is enriched and returned to it's proper and natural state the instant we stop poluting it, but we need to take that step in the first place.

    Earth day is a time to reflect on how we treat our planet. As well as the usual recycling and energy saving I try to put into practice everyday. I travel the earth on the internet making my carbon footprint much smaller and my life greatly enriched.

    Earth Day is a great chance to rethink old habits. Right now I'm thinking that I would love to use some of these beautiful organic fabrics for reusable napkins instead of the paper towels we currently use!!

    I feel a special connection to earth day cause it is also my b-earthday (and I was around for the very first one!)… it was truly a novel concept back then but one which kids could really appreciate

    I thought i had commented but I don't think it went through! I 'followed' you and 'liked' you! I remember Earth day from when i was in elementary school and we would plant a tree with our class in the big play field behind the school, then we would go plant seeds and take them home in used milk jugs that we were supposed to bring from home. back then it was just a fun project, but it's certainly stuck with me and now i know the importance of the day as well as having fun memories as a kid!

    (sorry if this is a double post!)
