I was super happy last night when I got the news that I would have a new job. You see, we've been working on the basement, and need a little extra "stuff" money, so I figured it was time I worked more than 2 days a week. So I applied for a job - and YAY, got an interview and the job! So very happy. So, in honor of my good news, I could only think of happy faces, so that's what I made! The cheese happy faces were done with a circle cutter, a straw and a knife for the smile. The "body" was actually a mistake that I looked at a second time and saw shoulders. By the time I realized I could have added arms, I was too tired!
So, here it is...
My bento was a little different. On the right: I had chicken leftover from supper cut up, I added some black olives (a staple when all 3 kids love them), and some rolled up cukes. Oh, and a "laughing cow" cheese peeking from underneath. For the left side - well, I was inspired by the Caprese salads that I keep seeing, so I did a simple one - but no mozza, only Gouda. It was... Goood - ah. Yeah, I know, bad joke! Also included - 2 figs.
Then, I made a Bento Belt for my son (or me). (sorry this photo should be portrait, but my settings are a little screwy) I found Maple Leaves, and decided to add it to an elastic belt that I had already made. Poof instant "canadian" belt. My son loved it. Hopefully I can find some felt bats, or cut some out and make belts for Halloween. Something fun and spooky!
Have a good weekend everyone!
