Used plastic toothpicks with hearts on the top to hold together.

Cute idea! I bought Melissa so many of the Disney snow globes when she was little! I should have just bought the little plastic dolls (Wait! I bought those as well!) and made my own!
Ha ha...so cute! Great idea for a 1st birthday shoot. Much easier to get those fun moments in its own shoot then to try to get them during the party when youve got everyone around trying to get their own photos. family-photo-ideas-newborn-and-up

Great Pumpkin idea for Halloween! Let your kids pick some of their favorites from their trick-or-treat stash and leave the rest for the great pumpkin (who then donates the candy). In the morning the great pumpkin leaves a special gift as a thank you. SO cute! Love this idea! Your kids get to enjoy all of Halloween without too much sugar and a little extra magic!

25 Manners Kids Should Know #1: When asking for something, say "Please." #2: When receiving something, say "Thank you." #3: Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency. They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking. #4: If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation. #5: When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later. #6: The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults. #7: Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome. #8: When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are. #9: When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had. #10: Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering. #11: When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling. #12: Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect. #13: Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant. #14: Don't call people mean names. #15: Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel. #16: Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best. #17: If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me." #18: Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public. #19: As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else. #20: If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new. #21: When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile. #22: When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again. This is especially true with teachers! #23: Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do. #24: Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary. #25: Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed.
Bikinis are a summer staple. They come in so many different color choices and styles, it would be hard to find one you didn't like! This one is a very cute example of what is available at Milanoo. It has a traditional bikini style top with shoulder straps and a strap across the back. There is a little bow accent on the front strap that adds lots of interest. The bottoms feature a gathered waistband and attached belt that creates a nice effect when worn. This is a very stylish little suit for just about anyone. The top alone would be cute paired with some shorts or a long, pretty skirt. Just a great addition to anyone's summer wardrobe.
If you're a fan of romantic little dresses, you love them as much as we do. They have a charm that dresses of other styles cannot duplicate. This one is a great example of that romance. It is made from a nice chiffon fabric and features spaghetti straps on a bodice that is embellished with gorgeous fabric roses all across the front. The midsection of the dress is accented with a nice ribbon sash that ties into a large bow in the center and trails down the front of the dress beautifully. The A-line skirt is light and airy, made from many layers of lightweight fabric so that it moves beautifully when you do. A simple, yet lovely design – perfect for any occasion.
When you think about neutral color shoes, you think of browns, blacks and variations thereof. You hardly ever consider white as being an option – but it is! And a great one, too – as these darling little shoes clearly show. They are made from a PU material and feature a low stacked heel and semi-rounded toe. A band of scalloped edge trim circles the tops of the shoes, adding visual interest. They have two straps that cross the top of the foot to secure them in place with buckles and a dainty bow on each strap. We think these would look so cute with a pair of lacy, frilly socks.
DATE A GIRL WHO READS
by Rosemarie Urquico
Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.
She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.
Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.
It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.
She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.
Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.
Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilight series.
If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.
You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.
You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.
Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
Or better yet, date a girl who writes.
