I've Started to Make Books

Ok, so this is off topic from my normal posts but I just thought I'd show you two books that I have made so far.  My materials aren't by any means professional, but hey they worked and the final product looks pretty neat.  For the covers I used heavy cardboard and construction paper and the pages were just light cardstock and computer paper, oh I also used thick thread to sew the pages together.
I've been thinking of getting a bunch of professional materials and selling these books cause I find making them quite enjoyable.  Let me know what you think! :)

The First book I made, It's going to be my garden journal.  I'm going to snazz it up a bit with some distressing ink and chipboard bits :)

 Pages are glued in and it's drying time..
Finished!  ( I had a brain fart, I don't know why I chose green and blue)
It turned out a bit crooked cause the pages shifted when I was gluing, but oh well I still like it :)

New Kitty Onigiri Bento Box!

Hey there just thought I'd post my brand new Onigiri Bento!  I LOVE it so much, and plus it has an adorable kitty on it which makes it so much cuter.  I got it from Ojamiya on, the seller was super kind!
I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet, but once I do I will do another post with it all filled up.

UPDATE!! Hogwarts Student Amigurumi

UPDATE!  I've finished the little guy!  This one comes with a hand dyed parchment scroll and sling, and a quill pen (which my cockatiel donated).  I will definitly be selling them now, check out my etsy shop for more info!

Hey guys I decided to try and make little Amigurumi dolls and this is what I came up with!  Little 'Hogwarts Students"!  I attached all the hair by hand, strand by strand and they only stand about 4 inches, if that!
This one's not quite finished yet though, I still have to crochet a little house scarf, make a wizard hat and a little wand.  I'm also thinking of making a little messenger bag with some mini spell books!  OH and I have to add a little house patch.
I haven't decided whether I will add arms to them or not...what do you think??  I will be making more in the future and hope to sell them in my etsy shop, so keep your eyes open if you're interested!!

Breakfast Bento for Easter

Sorry for the lack of posts!  I haven't been able to make any bentos in a while due to short shifts at work.
I really would have liked to have some easter eggs with my bento but I never got around to coloring them this year :(
Today I had some french toast sticks with syrup (in the blue penguin container), Japanese sweet omelet roll, sugared strawberries, milk jelly and some sour gummy worms.   I added a little chick pick just to give it a little easter flair lol! 
I was running so late this morning and my camera decided to die so I only got one picture, but at least it came out clear!
