Answering questions

Does it work if I reply in the comments? Or does it not feed that way?

Either way:

Janelle - the shapes for the sandwiches and veggies are just mini-metal cookie cutters. Some are from Minoya in Plano, some are from Williams Sonoma, some are from my mom's house. ;o) Really, anything metal works well. Plastic works alright, but metal works better.

Cortni - the yogurt jellies are from Asian World Market at 75 & Legacy. They come in a big bag or a big cookie jar like container. I know the cookie jars were on a front cap the last time I was there. I think they are also down one of the snack aisles.

Jonahlisa - the faux sushis are just rolled out white bread with the crusts cut off. :o) The meatball recipe is easy--mix equal parts of apricot or grape jam & BBQ sauce; pour over frozen meatballs and bake for about an hour. The dumplings, I buy frozen at the Oriental Market, but I don't know what the brand name is (it's written in Chinese characters).

Kelly - the bento bags, I just flipped one of Faith's real ones inside out and kind of followed the pattern. I really can't sew, so thankfully, it was a bunch of straight lines. It's basically a little drawstring bag (fold the flap down and sew it, then sew up the 3 sides) with the corners taken in so the bag sits nice.
