    Thanks so much for the link! I’m glad you found my lunch postings helpful.

    I did want to take a second to point out that the Three Little Pigs lunch is not one I made though. I’ve never pulled off something even approaching that cute — it’s something a rushed mom like me can only aspire to. It was made by a bento artist who goes by the handle “LoveBones” and you can find it here on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lovebones/3572356393/

    Here bento boxes are *stunning*. You should definitely take a few minutes to look at some of here work. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lovebones/sets/72157604510333876/

    Oh those are adorable!

    Last year, my mom made me some reusable sandwich wrappers and she used brightly colored fabrics and fun designs. I think it makes lunch a little more cheerful for my kids.
