Halloween Box 02

Posted on 31 October 2012 | Comments Off

Humorous Gifts For Scary Halloween :)Happy Halloween!

Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition.

It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts.

In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain.

The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween.

Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating.

In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.

Make a fantastic gift box for Halloween to cheer your friends or family members.

How To Make A Unique Homemade DIY Fathers' Day GiftHe 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

Paper Robot Boxes For Children And Grandchildren For International Children's DayJune 01, International Children’s Day

I wish a very happy and joyful holiday to all children of the world!

Children’s Day is celebrated on various days in many places around the world, in particular to honor children.

The World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland proclaimed June 1 to be International Children’s Day in 1925.

Traditionally kids receive very special attention from their family, including Birthday-like presents. All drivers are expected to drive with their lights on all day long to demonstrate extra vigilance over children’s safety.

Schools usually hold activities such as camping trips or free movies on Children’s Day to allow students to have fun, and children of civil servants might also receive small gifts from the government.

Many organizations from both government and commercial sectors have celebration activities for children. Children can enter zoos or ride buses for free.

Green Crocodile Box To Fill With 365+1 Popular Quotes On Family And LifeThe source for fully loving a child is found within each and every parent’s heart; it’s the capacity to love.

L is for Limit-setting. Whoever invented the word love knew that the first letter needed to stand for limit-setting. Good behavior just doesn’t happen. Appropriate behavior and the benefits of hard work—sticking with something until it’s done well—need to be learned through consistent limit-setting.

O is for Open CommunicationBeing understood builds self-worth. It means first listening to a child, especially during a conflict, and then putting the L into play—limit-setting. Yelling and consequences are not open communication.

V is for Valuing. At the center of love is the letter V for valuing and validating. Disciplining children effectively requires both V’s; they are as important as a child’s need for food. Value two things: what your child does right every day and the feelings a child has during a conflict.

E is for Empathy. Teaching your child to stand in another person’s shoes ensures less risk for physical health problems and develops kindness, compassion, and quality intimacy. It’s the lifeblood of enduring close relationships, the most gratifying life success your child can experience.

Tomorrow is International Children’s Day. Surprise your son or daughter with an instructive homemade gift idea: a stunning gift box filled with the

Mint Magnet Gift Box

Posted on 30 May 2012 | Comments Off

Mint Magnet Gift Box Gift Idea For International Children's DayBack in the middle ages, people thought of children simply as little adults. Modern psychology has destroyed that theory.

More than 50 years ago, the psychologist Carl Rogers suggested that simply loving our children wasn’t enough. We have to love them unconditionally, he said — for who they are, not for what they do.

Nurturing children is about the way we love them, the way we bring them up.

A parent’s love is our children’s destiny. A parent’s love is whole no matter how many times divided. It’s the legacy we give them.

Parents need to show their children that they do love and care for them.

Simply saying “I love you,” or taking part in a child’s activities and interests are very straightforward means for a parent to show a child love.

International Children’s Day is approaching. Show your love to your kid with a homemade gift: a Mint Manet Gift box filled with


for children.

To make the gift box, visit Plaid’s website and follow the instructions there:

Cheese Shaped Box

Cheese Shaped Box To Celebrate Whit Monday Cheese Rolling TraditionsMay 28, Pentecost Monday

Pentecost (Whitsunday) celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit in the form of flames to the followers of Jesus, as recorded in the New Testament. Jesus had told them to wait until the Spirit came to them.

Ten days after ascension, 50 days after the resurrection, the Spirit came.

In Gloucestershire, England, this holiday is often referred to as ‘Bread and Cheese Day’ because of a very strange custom that takes place on this day.

On Whit Monday, basketfuls of bread and cheese are thrown from a wall near the old castle, to be scrambled for in a lane below. The locals have been hurling bread and cheese since the 13th century.

After rolling three double Gloucester cheeses around the church, one is cut up and shared amongst bystanders and the other two are rolled down a steep hill.

Cheese rolling also takes place in other areas around England.

It’s the perfect occasion to make a Cheese Shaped Gift Box for family and friends.

See the Hello Sandwich Blog here to inspire you:

Fill your ‘cheese’ with


and your unique Whit Monday present is ready.

Pentecost Blessing Basket

Pentecost Blessing Basket Filled With Peace QuotesMay 27, Pentecost Sunday

After Easter Sunday, Christmas is the second-greatest feast in the Christian liturgical calendar, but Pentecost Sunday – also known as Whitsunday – is not far behind.

Coming 50 days after Easter and ten days after the Ascension of Our Lord, Pentecost marks the descent of the Holy Spirit on the apostles.

For that reason, it is often called the “the birthday of the Church.”

The English word “Pentecost” is a transliteration of the Greek word pentekostos, which means “fifty.” It comes from the ancient Christian expression pentekoste hemera, which means “fiftieth day.”

The symbols of Pentecost are those of the Holy Spirit and include flames, wind, and a dove.

Pentecost in the time of the Apostles was a great and grand harvest celebration. The streets were clogged with thousands of pilgrims who had come from every point of the compass to celebrate the goodness of God and the bringing in of the wheat harvest.

Make a nice present, celebrate this holy day with a pretty Pentecost Blessing Basket, make one, just like Angela Coles has created one:
