May your coming year be filled with joy, magic, dreams and good madness!
I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return.
And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.
And have lots of fun, joy and happiness!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with love around you! You had all your family members gathered, had great meals and fabulous conversations… But the Holiday Season is not over yet! Get prepared for the New Year’s celebrations!
Did you know that…
It was only relatively recently that 1 January again became the first day of the year in Western culture.
Until 1751 in England and Wales (and all British dominions) the new year started on 25 March – Lady Day, one of the four quarter days (the change to 1 January took place in 1600 in Scotland).
Since then, 1 January has been the first day of the year.
During the Middle Ages several other days were variously taken as the beginning of the calendar year (1 March, 25 March, Easter, 1 September, 25 December).
In many countries, such as the Czech Republic, Italy and the UK, 1 January is a national holiday.

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…

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.
Create a cute Flip Flop Gift Box to celebrate a summer birthday. Excellent homemade gift idea, unique and pretty.

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.

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.
