Having a sister in your life can be a wonderful experience.
If you have an older sister and you are a girl, she can often show you how to navigate the way through some of the more difficult areas of growing up.
This is also true if you are a boy. Your older sister can help explain to you how to interact with the opposite sex.
Younger sisters are a joy as well. They often worship their older siblings and it can be a nice experience to be admired.
Relationships with sisters, like any relationship depend on the people involved.

Many parents justifiably worry about the seemingly endless fighting between siblings. No worries – the fights give children a chance to learn how to make up and to regain control of their emotions, skills that come in handy down the road.
“Having a Sister Makes You Happier”: that was the headline on a recent article about a study finding that adolescents who have a sister are less likely to report such feelings as “I am unhappy, sad or depressed” and “I feel like no one loves me.”
Why? The usual answer is that girls and women are more likely than boys and men to talk about emotions.
Statistical analyses show that having a sister protects adolescents from feeling lonely, unloved, self-conscious and fearful. It doesn’t matter whether the sister is younger or older, or how far she lives.
Surprise your sweet sister on Sister’s Day (5th August) with a thoughtful gift.

Did you know that…
The default direction of the sunflower head is to point east towards sunrise (the location of the sun when it rises over the horizon in the morning.)
During the day motor cells in the sunflower stem tilt the flower bud to try to receive a maximum amount of sunlight. By evening, the sunflower head is pointing west, towards sunset (the location of the sun on the horizon just before it is no longer visible.)
This causes the sunflower to basically trace a 180 degree arc, tracking the sun’s position throughout the day, from horizon to horizon, sunrise to sunset.
Overnight, the sunflower will reset to its original eastward positioning and wait for the morning, ready to follow the sun’s path once again.
Once blooming however, sunflowers no longer exhibit heliotropic behaviour, and the stem is generally frozen into an eastward-facing position.
Make summer last forever with a pretty Sunflower Gift Box made using FIMO soft modelling clay.

July 22, National Parents’ Day
Happy Parents’ Day!
In the United States, Parents’ Day is held on the fourth Sunday of every July. This was established in 1994 when President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution into law for “recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.”
Parents love their children unconditionally and support them to get through the thick and thin of life. They often put their self-gratification aside, in order to nurture their children in a loving and secure environment.
It becomes imperative to dedicate at least a day to the parents, who readily dedicate their whole life for their children. That is why, since the establishment, Parents’ Day is celebrated with gusto.
Parents Day has today become a special day for the parents, their children and the society.
Surprise your dear mom and dad with a pretty DIY gift on this special occasion.
For instance, make an adorable Family Home Box and fill it with

Parents’ Day (fourth Sunday in July) is significant because it honors parents everywhere who are vital to the developments of future generations.
This day has been celebrated to show our honor and express gratitude to the two most important people of our lives.
This special day is a tribute to the efforts of parents and encourages everyone to show appreciation for their own parents.
In 1994, the U.S. Congress unanimously passed a bill to create a national observance for parents.
On October 14 of that year, President Bill Clinton signed the bill into law, thereby establishing National Parents’ Day.
Parent’s Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in July each year. On 2012, this special day will be celebrated on 22nd July according to Gregorian Calendar.
Whatever be the occasion, Mother’s day, Father’s Day or Parents’ Day, we try to convey our love and regards to our parents with some special gifts.

Butterflies are something unique of a creature in the insect world.
They start out as one thing (a caterpillar) and become a butterfly. They start their lives as caterpillars eating everything as much as they can till they get big enough to start a cocoon.
They spin this web of silk to hide in and as they are hiding in their cocoon they change into a butterfly. When they are ready, they then fight their way out of that cocoon to what we see flying about on wings of pure beauty.
Did you know that if you were to do what you think is the a kind thing and help a butterfly out of its cocoon that it won’t be able to fly? Its the fighting it does to get out of its cocoon that strengthens its wings so it can take to the air.
Now think about that in your own life as a example. We all started somewhere – good or bad, we started our lives somewhere in the world. As children we eat as much as we could till we grew up large enough to leave home. Our families and the world around us put’s us into a cocoon. We fought out of our cocoon that are families put us in to grow up and become the persons we are today…
Make a pretty Butterfly Gift Box to a friend or your mother, your sister. It is a lovely gift idea.

Why do we love summer?
The sun is what most people are missing the colder parts of the world. We long for summer because it is warm and nice, the nature is splendid and generous.
The question “why do we love summer?” may appear silly. Why?!? Summer time is obviously so great.
Summer heat means tan bodies, sundresses, flip-flops and bikinis. It means soaking up Vitamin D by the pool and watching summer afternoon storms roll through.
It means taking a refreshing shower on a hot day and sitting outside with friends on a warm night. Put on some sunscreen in relish in the summer.
There is always so much more to do in the summertime: concerts, festivals, cookouts – good times! Grab a cooler of your favorite iced beverages and bring along a few friends. There is nothing more you need in order to enjoy those perfect summertime events.
A Colorful Summer Gift Box is a nice handmade gift idea to celebrate a summer birthday.

Did you know that…
The history of hats starts a very long time ago in Thebes.
The first hats were those made out of straws, or a simple skull hat.
The slaves in Greece and Rome used to wear Phrygian hats to denote their social status. Women didn’t use to wear hats as they were only allowed to wear veils, hoods and caps.
Today a hat has become a symbol of fashion.
Men are rarely seen with hats, now women are the ones that enjoy the benefits of such beauty trademarks.
Ladies hats are even more that mere accessories – they can be real lifesavers when you are having a bad hair day for example.
They can be worn almost in every season: in winter to keep you warm, in spring and autumn they can shelter you from the rain and in summer they can simply shelter you from sun rays.
A pretty handmade Summer Hat Gift Box is a nice gift idea for any ladies.
