All my obsessing about ferning just had to lead to something, so I have decided to make a web page about saliva ferning. This is my first stab at it

There is going to be lots more on it, I want to give more scientific background, more pics, links to all the lipstick models, links to cheap microscopes, etc, but I just had to share the start of the page with you!

Look at it and let me know what you think!

Thanks Karen! Just seeing a few photos different from what came w/the Ovulens is helpful to me.

I know, envirobecca! The Ovulens frustrated me to no end when I was trying to figure out what the heck my ferning looked like and why it didn't look like ANY of the pics they included LOL

Still, it is a neat little thingy, even although I still haven't figured out what I am looking at all the time. Most of the time I can figure it out though, but the support of a real microscope helps a lot, at least I can double check my theories :-)
