I received from Calabaza today!!!!

She made me a great utensil roll and cloth napkin!


A bento box strap with an apple button on it and sauce containers!


A silicone cake mold, tiny apple paper puncher, and bread sandwich maker!


And tiny cookie cutters! These are great! I have found it so difficult to find small cookie cutters, especially ones that aren't Christmasy so these are fantastic!


Thank you so much, Calabaza! I love all of it!!!

Yay! It arrived! As I said in the note, I had a hard time coming up with things to make and send so I'm very glad you like your things. Whew!

I'm looking forward to your package and arcadian green's! Smiley

I received my package yesterday!


First for the crafted items I received an awesome bento bag with pirate ship. I really really love this!  Smiley  It also came with a matching cloth napkin.



Some cute little veggie cutters or cheese or fruit or whatever I feel like making fancy! I look forward to using these to jazz up my lunches a bit.



I also received sauce containers, onigiri molds and cute little punches.



Thank you Calabaza... I love everything! I can't wait to make some cute lunches soon.

I received from mom2em yesterday... here are the pics!


handmade food picks.


A bag, 5 cotton napkins, and a set of small cookie cutter shapes, including heart and butterfly and flower.


Stay Fit Box with a detachable freezer gel pack and spork and knife in the lid. I left it in the box for the pic because I think the pic on the box is better than I could get of the actual box (I tried).


Thank you so so much! Now I just need to finish getting your package together and mailed off... then I'll get busy bento-ing Smiley

Love the fabric choice for that bag you you sent, mom2em! It reminds me of a kitchen towel. Perfect for a homey feel to lunch on the go! ETA: That box is really neat too! Geez, I can't believe I forgot to mention that. I love the built-in icepack!

I'm glad you like your things, arcadian green! The fabric said bright picnic for what I made ShannonMN but for you it said mist and water so I tried to make the pirate ship look ghost-like. I don't remember if I put it in the note or not, but I figured you could use the cookie cutters and cute stuff for your son later if they weren't your style.
BTW there is an elasticized pocket inside to tuck a napkin or snacks as a.g. requested.

And...
I received from arcadian green today!

A bag made from some fabric I truly adore. It's lined and has one of those drawstring closures that don't affect the width of the bag. I love those!


A pouch with a button closure and 2 elastic bands also made from the super fabrics. Also a salt and pepper shaker (cool!), 2 sauce tubs, food markers (I've been dying to try these) and mini autumn cookie cutters! I love these. There's even a pumpkin! If you know me at all it will come as no surprise to hear that I am completely enamored with it. I've been looking for one for ages. A.g. said she picked out the set specifically because of the pumpkin. She is such a good partner!

Thank you, arcadian green!

Calabaza, I'm glad you liked everything.  Smiley  I made the bands to match the bag and I'm sure you noticed they are two different sizes. I based them off my two tier bento box and made one a bit smaller hoping it might fit a smaller box if needed. I figured the pouch could be used to store utensils, sauce containers or whatever you choose.

I'm excited to see what everyone else receives!  Smiley

@arcadian green: The pouch is coming in handy already! I have the "cute-fying" supplies you sent inside for quick and easy access and finding. I'm always misplacing things so this is a very good thing.

There are 4 packages still to be sent/in transit. I know I'm excited to see them! Thank you for staying in contact, ladies.  Smiley

ETA 9/1: I entered feedback for all of you that are eligible but entered it wrong. I'm so sorry! I've opened a help desk ticket so it should be corrected soon.

Here are pictures of what I sent to Fullmoon. The pics are not so great because I took them with my tablet.

Heres a pic of everything in the box.

Inside are some little containers inside containers. Some food cups and little vegetable cutters are in the little bag.

Another box I sent along with a knitted band. I ordered this from amazon and I thought it was to small.

These are cookie cutters I made. I think they turned out decent for my first time making any.

Heres another pic of everything. I sent some Eggies and egg molds. I love eggies and they are fun to use. Also a cup cake holder and some other little containers. Also in the orange box I put some sword picks.
