Man, these are the best things ever. I love your childhood heroes. (And your embroidery is gorgeous and looks so cheerful! I love the smiling trees and the little mushrooms on the ground and his neon green paint, and Jaques Cousteau riding a really cute fish, and Crystal Gale's random flight and flowing hair, and Shel Silverstein's friendly childhood atmosphere.) The only one of those I ever saw on TV was Bob Ross though :/. I've read some of Shel Silverstein's poems (and he is very cool), but was he on PBS? I want to see Jaques Cousteau's sea adventures...

Your project is really inspiring. It makes me want to do something like that too.
I never really had childhood heroes, but I guess my equivalents in favorite show would be Bill Nye the Science Guy, the snails from Waterspider Wonderspider (Hungarian show - Vizipk-Csodapk), Sheldon Turnipseed from Ghostwriter, the Smurfs, and Care Bears (I never cared that much about the stories, but was fascinated by being able to create items from nothing and from drawing them on a whiteboard....although why you'd use such an awesome skill to make an empty toilet paper roll I don't know). And maybe TinTin. Your educational value puts mine to shame Wink.

Wow, the package you got is really cute  Grin. I'm excited to see more photos. (Are those spoon-picks? What the heck are the lobsters? Is that PacMan on that bento belt?)

The bento you made looks delicious and pretty. Your sister is lucky Smiley. Is it a tree with hearts?
13  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: UMAgurumi (Unusual Marine Animals) - pic heavy! on: January 30, 2008 10:10:13 AM
I love all of your umagurumis so much. I've never seen anyone do any of these animals (and I can't believe you made a sea slug <3 <3). The narwhal is my favorite because of its mysterious straight horn. I can't wait to see what the other umagurumis will be.

I love your leaf design on that purse so much. It's so simple and cheerful. It looks like it would even make a good business logo, but I guess it would need to be for a plant or ecology related business.

It's also awesome that you design multiple purses and can reproduce the design exactly. Good luck Smiley

Hey guys, I found a thing - http://www.sugarcharms.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=50
This site is neither jlist nor ebay, and sells bento boxes at decent prices. Their accessories are a bit overpriced, but they have a few bento boxes nobody else carries (and some at better prices). I don't know how much their shipping is; maybe it would make up for the overprice.

Actually, another thing too. A couple of weeks ago I saw  really cute carrot and chick shaped plastic Easter eggs at Dollar Tree. The one in my town is a bit small and never seemed to get any or ran out though. I bought them at a different one I went in by chance. (Last year I saw a different kind of carrot at Giant Eagle grocery store; it might be common now.) I've been stuffing mini carrots in a carrot one and putting them in my husband's lunch. It fits about five. He thinks they're cute too  Grin.

And another nother thing: Japan has all these flavored KitKats that we're not lucky enough to have, but there's been a recent weird surge of candy companies randomly stocking different stores with special and/or limited new items (so far my favorite is banana Reeses). The Unimart in my town had coconut Nestle Crunch and regular KitKats, and the Unimart in another town had coffee and caramel flavored KitKats and no new coconut anything. It's really weird; even within the same chain.  But now we can have a few flavored KitKats too  Smiley.

they are Wilton brand cookie cutters from JoAnn's!!! they last a life time and come with three sizes. they have oval, square, heart, star, flower, circle, triangle, and diamond.  They have other individual ones too but these are my favorites!

That was actually my best guess, but all I ever saw was flower and maybe square at Walmart; my JoAnn's never had any and this Walmart stopped carrying them. But now I know to look in larger JoAnns (and maybe other Walmarts) Smiley.

Ryoruki, your bag with the kanzashi on it is completely gorgeous (and so is the kanzashi). I think I'm in love with it Grin. Do both bags reverse to the fabric the other one has? Also, I admire your skill at getting a towel into that super thin container.

CraftyMcCrafterson, I love the unique and cool design of your lunch bag. Your packing skill is also awesome, making it look like a bento  Grin. I love the ribboned cookie cutters too. Where did you find cookie cutters in such similar sizes  Shocked? Did they come as sets?

Thank you for that embroidery picture Lillian Cheesy. They're even more beautiful than I could see  Grin.

wow what a great package! yumm hello kitty food. =D

Thanks Smiley. Lychee drinks are delicious. I've never tried that brand though.

And merricat, I actually got those (cheaper; I was lucky) from ebay. I've never bought anything off jlist, although it's fun to look through. How much is their shipping?

The blue around the towel's eyes is just chalk pencil ^^;;. I had to let the dye dry for days so I was afraid to wash it.

Now detail for detail:
(It seems we are hard-to-show detail twins Grin. ...the black thing in the top photo is a cat with green eyes peeking out. I kind of imagine Hello Kitty is lying on the grass, but she could be walking too.)

I tried sewing a pre-existing insulated bag into it along with batting. Let me know if it worked? XD;;

And a bonus zoom in of the grape jelly drink with Heero Yuy from Gundam Wing as the advertiser (?!). These things give me endless amusement. He changes clothes for each flavor, even into a Hawaiian shirt. (Also they're very sweet but pretty good. It's like drinking juice with jello bits in it. The stumpy straw at the top has an X in it to break up the jelly.)

Heero says thumbs up for vitamins!

That's some nice screenprinting skill with the color aligning Smiley. Besides that, it's very cute and I love the felt (and now that I look closely, all the other) Rorus' (one is half broken?) teeth. I don't know if that's on purpose or not, but I think it gives him a cuter expression and more character than the standard Cheesy!!!! face chibi. Bonus points for making toilet paper this cute  Grin.

I love your work! Your cartoon style makes me happy just looking at it; you do expressions very well. Your kawaii things really are very cute, and I love that the girls can hang by a loop in their hair. I hope you can do this for a job too Smiley.

Wow, your candy looks incredibly real  Shocked. I love the bitten chocolates the most. (For some reason they look the most edible...I don't know why I'd want to eat something someone bit, but I do XD;.)  What did you use to make the bite marks? (What glaze do you use? I'm always afraid I'll use one that melts later and has dust permanently stuck to it, since that happened to me before.)
