I'm so glad you liked everything, EowynUlysses!   Cheesy

The Parasite Pals stuff is from Archie McPhee (archiemcphee.com) and they are only $8.95 for a set of four entire lunch kits. The cookbook is from the dollar bin near the checkout at Joanne's, if anybody wants ideas for vegetarian bento lunch it's got some really good recipes.

Everything is so super cute! So, once pics are posted will the senders be divulging their sources for these fantastic finds, I hope? Because I totally want a banana holder!

Reading all of these posts makes me so happy to live in Chicago, where there are lots of little ethnic neighborhoods!  I grew up in a very small town in Missouri, so I know what everyone's going through who lives in similar places.  The good thing is that these days almost anything can be purchased over the internet.   That wasn't the case when I lived in small town America  Smiley

I'm in Milwaukee and yesterday I threw my kid in the car and drove all the way to Mitsuwa just because I'm bento-crazed!

I feel the need to go buy huge sack of rice now-unfortunately with only the two of us, it takes an awfully long time to finish one. The bags are incredibly cute, and will be very strong as well. Lovely job!
You might be able to donate the rice to a food pantry on the condition that you can keep the sack. You can also use the rice to make things like eye pillows, bean bags, small stuffed animals, etc. Rice makes a pretty good weighted filler for such projects.

I've been wanting to make a purse out of those, where do you get the bags from?
I bought the rice from the Asian foods store. I think it was about $10, which isn't bad for 25 lbs. or rice. When you buy it in smaller volume it's usually at least $1 per lb. or so. Anyways, this came in such a beautiful sack that I couldn't throw it out when all the rice was gone. I had it hanging up in my craft room for over a year, then finally last night I got inspired to make it into something.

I saw some reusable grocery bags online that were made from bags used to carry rice and other goods in Korea. I had this Dragonfly Jasmine Rice sack for a while, and decided it was time to make something out of it. It was a 25 lb. rice sack made of what seems like woven plastic. It is very crunchy but sturdy. The top of the bag had the dragonfly logo I made the tote from. There was a picture of twin Thai women on the bottom third that I used to make a purse, and still enough left over after making those to also make a wristlet. The tote bag has a cotton strap and clothesline ties, the other two have braided twine straps. Here's a closer view:














28  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / **ADULT** toymaking at work - Kinko's remnant flogger! on: June 04, 2007 12:29:54 AM

I put the Kinky back in Kinko's!





I was working alone for a while tonight so I didn't get a break until the third shifter came in. I'd already had a snack so I didn't need to eat, and I'd just dealt with crabby deaf people so I felt like I needed to do something to unwind.

We have a sign and banner center and there's a box of remnants of adhesive-backed cut-offs from rolls that go on a machine for making die cut lettering to put onto a sign. It's about the consistency of electrical tape, but not as stretchy. I'd used that stuff to make a wallet before.

Tonight I used it to make a flogger.

My little girl and I spent a whole afternoon making swear word shrinky dinks too. Homeschooling is the shit.

Maezen and I were both flaked on so we swapped with each other I got some fucking awesome shit from her!

A reversible cuff:





A flippin' the bird plaque:



Fun four-letter word cubes that say fuck/shit/tits/cunt/piss/puta:



A mirror that will surely boost my self-confidence:



And she threw in a bubble gum tape machine that you can make your own swears on, which my 6-year-old promptly claimed. She punched up some cuss words on it and fed them to me. Like mother, like daughter.





Thanks so much, Emily! You fucking rock!
