As a child, you must have rushed to get your hands on a delicious frozen treat whenever you heard the ice cream truck drive by. Ice cream trucks were a source of frosty happiness.
Vibrant stickers of assorted, frosty ice cream treats were strewn across the truck’s sides, seeming so real and tasty, our mouths watered in anticipation.
There were chocolate nut cones, ice cream sandwiches and assorted ice pops in every flavor. Strawberry Shortcakes, Chocolate Eclairs and Cherry Bombs to name just a few…
And there was an ice cream of all – the Buried Treasure!
It was called the Buried Treasure because you had to eat all the raspberry ice cream to discover the “treasure” deep inside.
An imprint on the plastic stick! It might be a lion, a dog, or even a funny clown. Whatever it was, it was well worth the wait!
Bring back sweet old memories, and make a nice Ice Cream Truck Gift Box for your sister, brother, best friend…
Fill the truck with
INSPIRATIONAL QUOTATIONS AND PERSONAL NOTES FOR 365+1 DAYS OF THE YEAR.
You can get the free downloadable template of the truck from Samantha’s site:

Tomorrow (11th August) is a special family holiday to celebrate: Sons’ And Daughters’ Day.
The relationship of a son towards both his parents is very complex.
A son will likely feel a close bond with his mother, yet see his father as an adversary and competitor.
When a son sees how his father interacts with his mother he will either attempt to model his father’s behavior or reject his father’s example of relationships with woman.
From the parents’ point of view, having a son can be one of the greatest joys they will ever experience but also one of the greatest challenges. Balancing the need to offer freedom to your son while placing appropriate boundaries may be an area of contention.
Tell your son that he is very precious to you on Son and Daughter Day with a nice homemade present.

The flip flop originated from the sandal which was the first footwear humans ever invented and it has stood the test of time through the centuries.
People over the years used various materials like leaves and straw to give a better hold and add more wear ability to the flip flop.
From the first Egyptians who wore flip flops to their spread in the Western world, the humble flip flop’s popularity remains undiminished.
The name originated from the “flip flop” sound they made as you walked in them.
The words that come to mind when you think of flip flops are comfort and practicality. For that hot summer’s day at the beach nothing is more wearable than the flip flop which protects the sole of the foot and also gives the cushioning comfort to protect against different surface textures as you walk.

The sight of rows upon rows of a sunflower field in bloom can be truly inspiring…
The sunflower is more than just a pretty face however – it is a versatile and useful plant with interesting characteristics.
It originated in North America, and of the 60 species of sunflower, most are native to the wide stretches of sun-laden prairie and naturally occuring open areas of the Great Plains.
Sunflower is believed to have been domesticated from wild sunflower around 1000 B.C. by Native Americans to produce the single-stalked Common Sunflower.
The sunflower provided the tribe with food, was ground into flours for making breads and soups, and the ground seeds were also boiled to extract the oil. This oil was used for cooking, to soften leather, as a salve and as a hair conditioner.

Siblings are the people we will know the longest during our life span. They are the people who at least saw what it was like growing up, even if they were not treated the same. They remember the best and worst times in our lives.
Often we go too long without telling those we love what they mean to us. Time flies, it seems too mushy, or we just forget.
We find our own lives cluttered with more ‘important’ issues, we move away, or we work too hard and become too tired.
Your sister has always been there for you, in good times, great times, sad times, and devastating times.
Now, on Sister’s Day (5th August) it’s your turn to tell her how much you love her.
Make an impressive handmade gift to show your feelings towards her.
