Bento boxes

I just found out about this awesome new idea (i.e. Fedoraharp showed this to me)! To make pictures out of your lunch food! The art form of Bento boxes (otherwise known as playing with your food) is where you take an otherwise boring lunch and make it into art. :)
So obviously I tried it out. Despite not really having the right ingredients.
It's a pretty simple process but took a while to get right, and even so I guess it'll be a while before I'm making things like I saw online. However, it was super fun! And I ended up with a vaguely Futurama lunch!
Then I gave all the art leftovers to Nemo and Dory.
Here's pictures!

I'm visiting my parents for the Passover seder, and I happen to be a great guest, so I decided to bring a gift.
However, they'd told me not to bring any food, so that ruled out treats. That said, I wasn't going to give up on the notion of bringing something, though I had no clue what it would be.
After a number of calls and a bunch of thinking I set out to buy a picture frame, but alas! They had none that were nice looking and within my budget. That's when I noticed the wall clock. My parents have no wall clock at all. It wasn't quite the sort of thing I'd have given them as is though, it was too plain.
So I took it home, sat down, and drew until I found an idea I liked. Then I painted the idea on the clock (in nail polish atually- I've misplaced my paints) and here it is. :)

another move??

I moved! Again! And I'm quite happy with the new apartment, I'd like to stay here. I've put up all of my art on the walls, and also my weaponry. It's still a work in progress though, there's furniture missing and the books are still boxed. But spring cleaning sure was easy, it was just mixed in with the move.
I also rollerbladed around town with the dogs this morning, so they've been conked out on the floor ever since. XD That was super fun.
I'd lost my camera for the move so only recently I took it out and could finally send nail pics. Today I did a quick manicure- half moon nails with Golden Rose matte velvet turquois and a Dalia sparkly gold and a matt top coat from Perfect Chic. Pictures of nails and apartment below the cut!
