Growing up, I remember opening up Valentine’s Day Cards from my parents and my grandma.  I always looked for the Hallmark symbol on the back of the card.  At one point, I even had cards I had collected over the years from my family.  Unfortunately, these cards were lost in one of the many moves […]...

Ever since I was a child, I have especially loved personalized gifts.  I remember being a young girl in Girl Scouts and receiving a gift from my Scout leader that personalized by her with puffy paint (remember that stuff?).  The gift was special, but the fact that it was specially made for me made it […]...

My 6-year-old daughter recently became a fan of Monster High, huge fan!  And I have to admit; at first glance I didn’t see what the big deal was.  However, after watching a few of their movies, they have converted me into a fan as well.  Originality, uniqueness, and being different is cool – I like […]...

 Ok, don’t hate me, but it wasn’t until this past weekend that it started getting chilly here on the Central Coast of California.  I mostly grew up in South Carolina where they have recognizable seasons, and while I listen to the news and hear about all the cold weather my nostrils are filled with the […]...

How many of us wait until the last minute to do our Christmas shopping?  It usually involves running around at the last minute in search of gifts simply to cross names off our list.  Why spend time wandering endlessly in the mall for something generic that might work, when you can discover the perfect gifts […]...
