Link: Colorlovers.com

No Bentos today. Crazy with Christmas Fever.
So I'm sharing, what I think is the best colour/product/inspiration site ever!

Colorlovers.com is in their words:
COLOURlovers is a creative community where people from around the world create and share colorspalettes and patterns, discuss the latest trends and explore colorful articles... All in the spirit of love.
This website is perfect for a crafter who likes to personalise, there are millions of seamless patterns to which you can apply colours!  Perfect for any event.  As they say, half of the gift is in  the wrapping, and with this website and a printer, you are going to be the coolest gift giver ever! 

Hint: Add an envelope lining for that extra sha-zam. ^^ 

Here are two items where I have used personalised colorlover patterns 

Guest Names for Cups
Chopstick Wrappers for Steamboat
But the reason for being on this website is for another project!  I'll post next week and show you what I've done!

Three Alarmed Pigs

First Pig: Quick! Christmas is coming! HIDE!
Second Pig: OMG! I haven't bought my KK present!
Third Pig: "Deck the halls, with boughs of holly"
First Pig: I'll "DECK" you in a sec! Now MOVE!


I do seem to have a great liking for alarmed faces, but the bottom one looks like he's singing carols.

Koala bear bento

Well its not really a bear, so it requires a little explanation.  The Koala is an Australian native marsupial.  They only eat gum leaves and rarely drinks water.  The net result is although they are cute with their oversized ears and noses, furry and no sharp angles, they do have a concentrated aroma, and frankly they are nicer curled up asleep in a tree.
