Following my previous Gallery of my bentos which I made in April 2014, here is a round up post with all the bentos I published in the month of May this year, I hope you enjoy looking at my springlike bentos! As I am uploading these bento photos, I realized I was in a mood of making cheerful and pretty things. The month of May is one of the most beautiful months here in Norway and maybe it was the season who inspired me.. There were very small things with details in my bento in this month as well. The sun started to come up early and I enjoyed getting up and spending time to create these bentos. We had a week called Girly Bento Week and I enjoyed picking up different objects that could be easily associated with typical girly things. One bento was dedicated to my bento friends I communicate almost everyday on Facebook, it became a special bento for me too.
As you may have already found out, my bento style changes from time to time, it is because I just don’t want to be boring or taking safe decisions all the time, I want to be creative for what I do. In order to be creative, I need to be challenging. I enjoy freedome to be silly sometimes and I should not be afraid of making mistakes. Being creative does not come from your hands, I think it comes from your mind. Hands are the important tools I have to produce something creative but it is my mind that moves my hands. I really think so.
The month of May started with a variety deco onigiri bento followed by a bento for Japanese Children’s Day May 5. I made KOINOBORI, the symbol for the day of celebration, wishing all the happiness for our children of the world….
