Sisters’ Day (first Sunday of August, 5th August 2012) celebrates being or having a sister. That means a lot of us will celebrate this special day tomorrow.
Sisters are truly that inseparable part of us and no matter how much we fight & play pranks, we can’t actually stay without her.
Her love, encouragement and motivation are enough to give us the strength to pass through the various obstacles of life.
There is a feeling of exaltation in the mind when she is there in times of all our needs, giving us a shoulder to lean on and brushes away all our worries and cares.
Tomorrow is a great opportunity for those who are blessed with a sister, to convey their warm and thoughtful regards to them.
Spend some time with your sis on Sisters’ Day. Grab lunch, hit the beach, or watch some home videos.
No gifts can take the place of a personalized homemade gift.
Make a special gift box for her and enclose in it
DEAR BELOVED SISTER QUOTES FOR 365+1 DAYS OF THE YEAR.
She should read only 1 message a day and she will definitely love it!

April 21, Husband Appreciation Day
If your husband always remembers Sweetest Day and makes sure to schedule trips around your Valentine’s Day plans, we have a holiday for you: Husband Appreciation Day.
As we enter into marriage, we may wonder how we ever lived life without our mate. We’re focused on each other, and that makes us close.
However, the longer we’re married, our focus tends to turn to jobs, bills, or children and less on each other. Unfortunately, this causes many marriages to turn cold and some eventually die.
Have you ever wondered how people stay married for 30, 40, or more years? Do you want your marriage to last a lifetime?
The key is to stay focused on your mate. Here is a great way for you to show your husband your love.
Prepare a Love Box for him and fill it with
ROMANTIC MESSAGES AND LOVE YOU QUOTES FOR 365+1 DAYS OF THE YEAR.
He should read only 1 each day.
A Love Box is something you make, for example a gift box with embroidered hearts on it:
Beautiful cards with 365+1 loving quotations can be downloaded and printed from here:
Husband Appreciation Day is just a date on the calendar, but the love you and your significant other share is something worth celebrating all year long.

Happy Great Lover’s Day!
April 2nd Great Lover’s Day marking the birth of Casanova, the legendary lover, in 1725.
What is love?
It is one of the most difficult questions for the mankind.
Centuries have passed by, relationships have bloomed and so has love. But no one can give the proper definition of love.
To some ‘Love is friendship set on fire’ for others ‘Maybe love is like luck. You have to go all the way to find it.’
No matter how you define it or feel it, love is the eternal truth in the history of mankind.
Be together, share your joy and sorrow, understand each other, provide space to each other, but always be there for each others need. And surely love will blossom to strengthen your relationship with your matter of affection.
See instructions on the blog of Creative Itch:

In the 1940′s Pietro Ferrero had a dream. The gifted Italian confectioner wanted to bring fine chocolates to the world.
First, though, he needed to change the way his countrymen bought chocolates. In 1946, Pietro began to do just that.
At the time, confections, cake and pastries were reserved only for special occasions, and even then Italian consumers chose products from small manufacturers and local pastry shops.
Pietro’s vision went far beyond these confines. He wanted to create original premium candies and make them widely available at affordable prices.
He succeeded. In just a few years Ferrero Rocher became the favourite chocolate treat for millions of people. Today it’s the world leader in its category.
After you have finished those delicious spherical chocolate sweets, do not throw their containing box away. You could make a pretty gift box out of it, just like Norwegian Gro Nilsen did:

Did you know that…
There are statistics that say a baby is born every 3 seconds. Other statistics say one is born every 8 seconds. Given our knowledge, or at least approximate knowledge, of the world’s population, and the increase in that population from one year to the next, it would seem that the discrepancy in statistics could be easily resolved.
When your baby has it’s first birthday, he or she can celebrate it with around 9 million other one year olds, who were born on the same day.
To make one see Sue Berker’s tutorials:

18 March 2012 - Mothering Sunday
Mothering Sunday, sometimes known as Mother’s Day, is held on the fourth Sunday of Lent in the United Kingdom. It is exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday and usually falls in the second half of March or the beginning of April.
Mothering Sunday was originally a time when people returned to the church, in which they were baptized or where they attended services when they were children.
This meant that families were reunited as adults returned to the towns and villages where they grew up.
In time, it became customary for young people who were working as servants in large houses, to be given a holiday on Mothering Sunday. They could use this day to visit their own mother and often took a gift of food or hand-me-down clothing from their employers to her.
Mothering Sunday is now a celebration of motherhood. It is a day to honor mothers and other mother figures, such as grandmothers, stepmothers and mother-in-laws.
Treat your mum to a special present with a unique homemade gift box.

Fill you lovely box with
She will definitely love it!
To all those special Mothers out there, we celebrate you and thank you not just on Mothering Sunday, not just on Mothers’ Day, not just on Mother’s birthday, but on every day of the year!
