My lo's for Crazy Daisy this month. . .I.loved.this.kit. So many of my fave manufacturer's and fun goodies to play with.

The full mini is pictured here.
I opened up a tumblr awhile back, but never used it.  I have started now, because it drips with inspiration.  I just love the photos and quotes that tumblr produces from all of that talent out there! So, if you want to follow along. . .here is mine (I just reblog whatever I see that I like)! 

Gearing up for school this week.  I'm getting all of my bento stuff together.  I love to create bentos for the girls and their friends really get a kick out of it too!  I use the Bento blog Wendolonia as inspiration for easy but yum bentos.  There is a link in the sidebar too (under cool sites).  I also am in a flickr group that has inspiring ideas for bentos, though some are pretty elaborate, and I can't imagine my kids eating quail eggs for lunch!  LOL! 

Here is the post that started it all for me.  She gives great ideas for food for picky eaters. 
Also a bento example of Wendy's.  FYI, I get my bento supplies from Amazon, E-bay, Sugarcharms, and Obento.  I enjoy it as a way to make my girls feel a little extra special.  I also use supplies from Bake it pretty (link in sidebar) in their Bentos.  I've mentioned them in posts before (I have the mustache candy molds).  :)  Here is also a great source for free printables for lunch notes and teacher's gifts, etc. 

Well, we're off to the pool (for the last week. . .*sniff)!  Hope you're all enjoying these last wonderful weeks of summer!

I am loving bento boxes this year- need to get some! I saw one that had skulls on it for the boys. Adorable layouts too by the way. I need some inspiration. I have not scrapped anything in a while!

Thanks for the bento ideas and the links. My son started school this year and I pack him a lunch everyday. Unfortunately, I started doing cute things in his lunch and the crazy kids in his class made fun of him I guess so it's back to boring sandwiches and such. We will see if I can squeeze something in for him again.
