Working Wednesdays – Computer Work

I’ve got some super exciting parties coming up in the near future, which of course means invitations! I’m currently working on not one, not two, but three different party invites. Thankfully, its pretty fun work. Above you can see the invites that I am making for my son’s 17th birthday. Holy moly right? 17!! His party is going to be a “saturday night cartoons & cereal” party so for the invites I’m making little boxes of cereal, with real cereal & prizes inside. I’ll have a PDF to share with you soon in case you ever want to throw a similar party, and I’ll share some photos of the finished boxes when I am all done.
Oh and working on the cereal box was so much fun that I’ve started working on a fabric design of cereal boxes, I can’t wait to upload it over on Spoonflower :)

Back To School

My boys are heading back to school this morning. My oldest son is starting his senior year of high school. I can’t tell you how hard this is still for me to believe. My youngest son is starting the fourth grade (also pretty mind blowing, it feels like we just went in for his first day of kindergarden)
My boys are both packers and both pretty opposite in tastes. My older son is vegetarian and will eat just about anything. He likes things in his lunch like asian noodles, lots of fruit, raw veggies, sandwiches, etc. He is so easy to pack for. My youngest on the other hand eats chicken & tuna, and is a super picky eater. He is a bit more of a challenge. He gets bored with the same food so I feel like I am constantly trying to keep it new and fresh, plus I feel school lunch is good for trying new foods because he is more likely to eat them when he’s very hungry.
All that being said by the last few months of school I am over the whole “packing lunch” situation. This year to make it a little easier on all of us I created a lunch idea cheat sheet that works for my kids. You can print it out and add to it, I think it might be helpful for lunch packers of all ages.
