Fell into Bento

Maybe you have heard about all the new rage lately? The bento lunch box craze has bitten me and my daughter could not be happier! I really love hot lunch and always wanted it as a kid. Instead, my mother, a single mom of 3, would make me bologna and ketchup sandwiches with that generic cheese popcorn and apples....yay. Now I know why I loathe ketchup in every form. Since Ms. M hates hot lunch and insists on packed I figure why not try?

Here is my first

Just google bento and a you can find all sorts of shapers, molds and cutters. Yes it does take time but I am a creative person anyhow and this gives me an outlet. The 5th graders try to trade with her at lunch and I am sure soon she will ask me to stop making "cute" lunches.

I have been posting sneak peeks of Winter/Holiday over on FB so if you are not a "fan" yet click on the box to the left so you can be the first to see the pics! Your orders will ship in approx 2 weeks after you place them next week.

I am going to sew up some American Doll outfits for Ms. M for her birthday gift at her party this weekend. We are going to do tie-dye shirts at the party - not sure yet if that was a good or bad idea - I will get back to you on that one.

That's SO cute! I barely have time to throw things into a lunch pail. When I grow up I want to be like all the other cool moms ;)

Can't wait for Oct 1st...all the cuteness is going to break me!! :)
