Yay! Typepad helped me fix the things that were bugging me in my design. Soon I will sit down and get the rest of it set up.
But since Halloween is almost here and gone (blink), I wanted to share the kids' lunch from today. Since my youngest is in kindergarten and only goes to school three days a week, I made their Halloween lunch a day early. Does anyone else have fun with lunches?? I figure I am going to make them anyway, might as well enjoy it!
The coloring is kind of odd due to indoor lighting since the SUN wasn't up before they left this morning. Who am I kidding ... I live in Oregon so the sun won't be up until May.
I made candy corn pizza, ghost yogurt, and a jack-o-lantern "cutie" orange. For the pizza, I bought three different cheeses and placed them in circles before baking so when cut into wedges would form candy corn stripes! Their yogurt simply has two raisins for eyes. I like to keep things very simple. And the pumpkin face is drawn on with my trusty Sharpie =).
I plan on sharing the kids' lunches from time-to-time in hopes that there are others out there who are on the lookout for inspiration like I am. My goal is to share well-rounded crafty inspiration on this blog, from clothing to parties to lunches to scrapbooking to cards to home decor to anything-I-can-make-a-little-cuter-with-some-glue-or-scissors =).
While I'm at it I should share a couple more lunches I thought to actually photograph this year. The first day of fall called for busting out the leaf cookie cutters and leaf sprinkles!
And to prove I don't alway do pizza (in fact it's pretty rare), here was their lunch on the first day of school, in star-theme.
