you could always check your nearest trustworthy craft store or fabric store--they tend to have things of that nature.  also, because i am not yet wise in the ways of bento, i have no idea about YOUR idea.   Smiley

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

JoAnn's does have some "colored" elastic, but the colors are White Black and Gold (at least at my local store, and it's not a small store either Tongue) I found that I have luck at the more random stores, like if your Wal Mart has a fabric section, try them. Or possibly Craft Warehouse or Hobby Lobby. Smiley Hope that helped.

Dude, no sweat here.  It's almost as if you guys have been planning this stuff behind my back, there have seriously been a few people that I'm suspicious of because they seem to be soul mates.

Also, I know everyone here can appreciate this, I haven't figured out who I'm going to partner myself with yet...but I had a calling.  I was driving home and Hobby Lobby and I have this telepathic connection, and I had to go.  I knew I would find my destiny there.  Now mind you, I've been jotting down ideas for this since early this summer, but it all came to fruition in the clearance aisle at hobby lobby, and I'm feeling this sense of bento clarity now.  And get this.  Totally TMI, but I had to go to the bathroom SOOOOO bad (and it wasn't pee), but I dug through every single clearance shelf in the store, because I knew something there was made for this swap.  And I found it.  And I drove the whole way home stroking this item lovingly. 

I'm telling you, it was meant to be man, it was meant to be.

Ahaha, Plum. I admire your dedication to crafting. All too often this will happen to me, and the bathrooms at my JoAnns are DISGUSTING (Trust me, I used to work there, I know) and I had a very unhappy, grumpy, impatient boyfriend in tow. Not fun, but a true Craftster just deals with it, lol Wink

I'm pretty sure that people only go to the bathroom in grocery stores, department stores, and craft stores if they are suffering from some sort of african parasite that plants explosives in their lower intestine.  I cannot tell you how many times, while working in a grocery store, I had to use the customer rest room (or worse: clean it) only to discover someone was no where near the toilet with their aim, in fact, they weren't even in the stall.

I've heard horror stories from friends who worked in department stores that involved people mistaking (let's give them the benefit of the doubt and not just call them out for the jerks they are) dressing rooms for rest rooms.

I haven't shopped in wal-mart in a few years, but when I did go in one about five years ago during the Christmas rush, it was like every single person in wal-mart went out for white castles and ex-lax first, then decided that wal-mart was the place to be.  You could smell it outside the rest room, all the way in the front of the store.  I never even made it into the bathroom, I just left my stuff and told my mom I needed to go home to take a pee (she's just a wee-bit OCD and was very understanding).  I've travelled a lot in my lifetime, and I don't think I've ever been in a truck stop or a rest area that was more disgusting than that wal-mart.

*barf face* The bathrooms at my JoAnn's were always spotless! I used to clean them and wouldn't stand for trashers making it ugly.
