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.

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.
If you are looking for suggestions how to make a beautiful summer gift basket or a seasonal summer birthday gift, here is a tip for you.

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
HEARTWARMING FAMILY QUOTES AND FAMOUS SAYINGS ABOUT MOM AND DAD FOR 365+1 DAYS OF THE YEAR.

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.
