Sister’s Day (first Sunday of August, 5th August 2012)
Happy Sister’s Day!
Today is a day to appreciate your sister — she is someone you can always count on.
Forget about any arguments and thank your sister for all of those good times. After all, sisterhood is an everlasting bond!
Sisters are truly special and unique. Sure, we may argue, fight and tell on each other but, when it comes right down to it, sisters are the best, the very best.
Celebrate Sister’s Day by spending time with your sister. Make it a special day in some way for you, and for her.
Give her a special handmade gift, that you have created.

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.
You could make a handmade keepsake box for your mom, and insert
TOUCHING QUOTES ON FAMILIES AND MOTHERHOOD FOR 365+1 DAYS OF THE YEAR.

What do we love most about birds?
I would have to start off with, their simplicity, yet complexity.
Simplistic in a sense that their lives seem to revolve around food, safety and breeding.
The complexity is how they survive in what is a huge world around them, with threats from every direction.
There are those that whirl about the branches and leaves, seemingly oblivious to the world around them.
High up, out of reach of most everything else and in a perpetual motion.
Then there are the ones that are foraging several trees away, and dart away at the first sound of a leaf crackling beneath our feet. Of course, there’s always those in between that are well aware of your presence, and maintain a safe distance.
Birds, are such a delight to watch, and although we always have our ‘favorites’ most of us find pleasure in merely having the opportunity to be in this world with them.
Make a Cute Birdie Gift Box to treat a friend or family member with it on their birthday or Christmas. Such an adorable homemade gift idea!
Here is the free printable paper craft template for it:

Did you know that…
One night, in 1936, Sylvan Goldman, the owner of the Piggly Wiggly supermarket chain in Oklahoma City, sat in his office wondering how customers might move more groceries.
He found a wooden folding chair and put a basket on the seat and wheels on the legs. Goldman and one of his employees, Fred Young, a mechanic, began tinkering.
Their first shopping cart was a metal frame that held two wire baskets. Since they were inspired by the folding chair, Goldman called his carts “folding basket carriers”.
The invention did not catch on immediately. Men found them effeminate; women found them suggestive of a baby carriage. “I’ve pushed my last baby buggy,” an offended woman informed Goldman.
After hiring several male and female models to push his new invention around his store and demonstrate their utility, as well as greeters to explain their use, shopping carts became extremely popular and Goldman became a multimillionaire.
Today, most big-box stores and supermarkets have shopping carts for the convenience of the shoppers.
A homemade Shopping Cart Gift Box is a cool and practical gift idea for any gift-giving occasions.

Strawberries are the first fruit to ripen in spring and early summer.
Heart-shaped and as juicy as a good love story, a bright-red strawberry is a natural symbol of love.
Strawberries used to be the darling of spring’s transition into summer, with local varieties only available for the month of June. But now, with farm-fresh produce available year-round, you can enjoy this fruit anytime your strawberry-shaped heart desires.
You’ll fall in love with how good for you they are. Low in fat and calories, high in fiber, potassium, folic acid and antioxidants, eight medium-size strawberries have more vitamin C than an orange.
There are several theories on the derivation of their name. One has it that early English children threaded berries onto straws and sold them in the marketplace “by the straw.” Another claims the name represents the spreading nature of the plant runners which are strewn, or “strawed,” over the ground.
A pretty Strawberry Gift Bag is a perfect gift idea to celebrate a spring-birthday.

Did you know that…
Father’s Day was the brainchild of Sonora Smart Dodd, whose mother had died giving birth to her.
At a time when many widowed men sent their offspring to live with relatives, Sonora’s father reared her and her five siblings alone, on a farm in eastern Washington.
In 1909, grown and married, Sonora was in church listening to a Mother’s Day sermon when the thought struck her that fathers deserved credit, too – especially hers.
Through her efforts, Spokane, Washington, held the first Father’s Day observance the following year.
Not many countries of the world celebrate fathers with their own official day. However, that is what is done in the United States every third Sunday in June.
Father’s Day is a special day for dads when they are pampered by their children, given gifts, and even surprised with breakfast in bed!
On Fathers’ Day it’s your turn to show how much you love your dad. Express your love with an awesome homemade gift idea.

He is loving and kind, he listens, suggests, and defends… He has the strength of a mountain, and the wisdom of ages…
He loved to tell you stories, he taught you to ride your bike. He surprised you with great toys. You used to share fudge sundaes and ice cream in a cone. Dads really do make a huge difference in their children’s lives.
Do you remember when you used to think that your daddy was a supper hero, and that he could do anything? You used to always say, “Daddy, fix it.” It wasn’t a question, it wasn’t a request, it was a statement. And he always tried his hardest to fix whatever needed fixing.
Fathers are really wonderful people. Working fathers face a unique challenge. They are trying to do it all. Carefully balancing work life with home life. They struggle daily to live up to “the image” as protector, provider, and hero.
Show your love to your special Dad on Fathers’ Day with a heartwarming handmade gift you have spent time and effort on.
For instance make a stunning gift box and fill it with
