Details of swap:
This swap is for bento newbies and experienced lunch-crafters.  You will be asked to craft one medium and two small projects for your partner & their bento box.  I'll try to partner non-bento-owners with folks who will purchase bentos for them.  You can also think beyond the box: accessories, carrying cases, special things to tuck inside one's lunch, etc.  If you are crafting something that will hold food, please make sure it is food safe and include info for your partner about its microwavability and dishwasherness. 

Remember that the more information you put on your questionnaire and provide to your partner via PM, the better the results are likely to be!

You guys seriously have no idea- we have such an awesome group here!  I've read all of the questionnaires so far and everyone is so fantastically fantastic!  I'm really excited to do partnering (but of course, showing restraint and waiting until sign-ups are complete).

OOOH and two people have already put on their questionnaire something that is my super-brilliant-genius idea that I've been thinking about forever and have somehow not managed to spill the beans about.  WOOHOO!

Kirashii-  We now have 3 people requesting the thing I'm dying to make.  Odds are I'm going to get one of them.  I can't wait!

While we're enduring the endless wait for sign-ups to be complete and get partnered, if you have a bento tip to share or photos, go ahead and post them!

Here are some of my LLB entries on Flickr:

I don't remember to take photos very often, but would like to work on that.  I normally pack leftovers (as you can see)...I had to chuckle a little bit because I just looked at my bento photos again (I haven't for a while) and I had leftover turkey fashioned into turkey salad after Thanksgiving.  The turkey just never goes away, does it?
