What is Chinese new year about?     Chinese New Year is a holiday that celebrates the beginning of a new year according to the lunar calendar. It is considered to be one of the most important holidays for Chinese families.   Family gathering, gift giving, symbolic foods, and beautiful colorful  festive decorations.   In China the celebration last for a month.   Some chinese traditions for Chinese New Year are:  1. Clean house from top to bottom.  It is believe doing so, will ward off any bad luck in the future and rid of any bad luck from the previous year.    The cleaning must be completed by New Year’s eve and ready to recieve good luck in the coming year.  2. Decorating the house .  Families hang up posters and signs on doors and windows with the word “FU” written on them.     Fu means luck and happiness.   Flowers is also another favorites and symbolizes the coming of spring, a new beginning.     3.  Family gathering at the table.   On New Year’s eve, family visits are common and having a huge dinner.   They serve about 8 or nine dishes, partly beacuse of their lucky numbers.   The Chinese word for 8 is “baat”  prosperity and fortune.   nine = longlasting, often used for weddings.  4. Giving good luck gifts is another tradition.   Adults hand out to children little red envelopes “hong bao” filled with money.  This symbolizes wealth and prosperity for the coming year.     5. Red and gold are lucky colors.  Black and white are never worn on Chinese New Year, they bring bad luck during the holiday.

S’mores Hot Cocoa

Smores-Hot-Cocoa-minimalistbaker.com_

S’mores Hot Cocoa perfect for those minus temperatures many of us have been experiencing.  It’s not only a  gorgeous looking cup of hot cocoa but it taste delicious.   My daughter found this cool recipe at minimalistbaker.com

The only changes I made was I used milk  instead of water, sugar instead of non-bitter stevia and substituted the graham cracker to chocolate graham cracker for the chocolate lover I am.

Enjoy this recipe!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk, any kind
  • 1 cup water (or use 3 c milk)
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp light chocolate syrup
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp non-bitter stevia (or add 1-2 Tbsp more sugar to taste)
  • pinch salt
  • graham crackers, crushed (for lining rim)
  • ½ cup marshmallows
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to low broil and move oven rack to the second from the top (high enough up to broil your marshmallows). Place baking sheet on rack.
  2. Heat milk and water in a saucepan over medium heat until warmed through – about 5 minutes. Be careful not to overheat or scald.
  3. Add cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, sugar, stevia and salt and whisk vigorously until thoroughly combined.
  4. Meanwhile, take a few marshmallows and rub them around the top of your mugs so the graham crackers will stick. Then, dip mug in graham cracker crumbs until well lined. You could also add some graham cracker crumbs to the bottom of your mug for extra graham flavor.
  5. Pour in hot chocolate and top with ¼ cup marshmallows each. Carefully set mugs on the baking sheet in the oven and broil marshmallows until browned, watching carefully as to not let them burn.
  6. Carefully remove from the oven with a towel and serve with holders or a small towel to protect hand from heat (they should cool quickly for handling). Top with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and extra graham cracker crumbs for serving (optional).
Notes
* Adjust flavors before serving, adding more chocolate or sugar if you prefer.
* Also, you could add a shot of Kahlua or Bailey’s to make it a boozy hot chocolate.

Great Homemade Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Here are some fun handmade gift ideas for Mom.

Fun Mother’s Day Trivia

  • First Mother’s day – May 10, 1908 was founded by Anna Jarvis, in hopes to fulfill her mother’s wish.  She and her friends and supporters began a letter-writing campaign to establish a national holiday in celebration of the importance of motherhood.
  • President Woodrow Wilson made an official announcement proclaiming Mother’s Day as a national holiday that was to be held each year on the 2nd Sunday of May.
  • Mother’s day is celebrated internationally
  • Kittens are born both blind and deaf, but the vibration of their mother’s purring is a physical signal that the kittens can feel – it acts like a homing device, signaling them to nurse.
  • A mother giraffe often gives birth while standing, so the new born’s first experience outside the womb is a 1.8-meter (6-foot) drop.
  • Just like people, mother chimpanzees often develop lifelong relationships with their offspring.

Earth Day April 22nd 2012

beautiful-earth-natalie-holland

Earth Day is celebrated around the world and this year the date is set for Sunday, April 22nd and although some cities start their festivals and or rallies weeks before.    Earth Day was founded back in 1970 by Gaylord Nelson, and then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin and more than a billion people around the globe participate.   Earth Day is not just a day for celebrating but a day for promoting awareness of growing pollution within our water, air, and soil.  To promote respect for all forms of life on our beautiful and precious planet.   Everyone can pitch in one way or another.

Here are just a few things one can contribute for a safer planet.

  • Turn off tap water while brushing your teeth
  • Repair any leaking faucets
  • Turn off lights and TV when leaving a room
  • Try to walk, ride bikes, skateboard if possible  ( This also promotes great health)
  • Use public transportation if possible
  • Don’t litter, if you do come across garbage pick it up and dispose at nearest garbage can

Valentine Gumball Necklace

This is truly adorable!  What a fun project to make with your daughter.  I think these are cute gifts for your BFF.  I came across this beautiful project on OneCharmingParty

How to:

1. Using a metal skewer, pierce one side of the gumball. Hold the top of the gumball steady as you guide the skewer (see photo). This will prevent the skewer from slipping off the slick surface of the gumball.

2. Flip the gumball over and pierce another hole directly opposite to the first hole. If you try to poke a hole straight through both sides at once, the gumball will crack.

3. The hardest part is stringing the ribbon. Use a large needle to thread the ribbon through the gumballs. Thinner ribbon is easier to string. Tie a knot between each gumball as you string it.

Tip: Look for bags of single colored gumballs at your local party supply store.

QA’S with Author Denise Lewis Patrick – Cécile Rey and Marie-Grace Gardner American Girl Dolls

cecil mariedenise lewis patrick

Denise Lewis Patrick  is the author of American Girl newest Historical Dolls Cécile Rey and Marie-Grace Gardner.   In her six book series, set in 1850s New Orleans, Ms. Patrick writes about two girls that form a unique bond through their shared love for music and their compassion to help their community during the yellow fever epidemic.   Ms. Patrick recently interview by American Girl,  enjoy the Q&A’s:

What did you do to prepare to write Cécile’s stories?

The first thing I did was to read about what New Orleans was like at the time her stories take place. What did the city look like? How did the different people live together? What kinds of work did free people of color do, and where did they live in the city? I found answers to these questions in books, drawings, old newspapers, and in the

narratives, or diaries, of real people who lived in the 1850s. Next, I read about yellow fever, and how that terrible disease affected everyone who lived in the city. I imagined that people must have felt in many ways the same as they did after Hurricane Katrina, or after 9/11 in New York. I decided that I wanted Cécile’s stories to show how something so big touched and changed the lives of real, normal people. But the most important thing I did was to go back and walk the streets of New Orleans, to smell the history in the old buildings and see the wonderful cast iron rails. New Orleans is more than a place to me. It’s a feeling.

What were the most challenging aspects of writing the Cécile books?

I believe the most challenging aspect of writing these books was deciding what to leave out of Cécile’s story! Almost immediately, I began to imagine this lively, smart girl and the family she came from. In my own family, grandparents, aunts, and uncles are very important, and cousins are, too! I even created a family tree for the Rey family, with details such as what Papa’s mother did (she made hats), and how Cécile’s parents met (their fathers were friends). “Building” a life for the Rey family helped me to know Cécile as well as I know any real person.

How would you describe Cécile’s personality?

In my mind, Cécile Amelie Rey is bright, curious, and has a mischievous sense of humor. She loves secrets, of course, and also enjoys learning new things and meeting new people. She’s not quite a “girly-girl,” because unlike most girls of her time, she hates sitting still and being quiet!

How would you describe Cécile’s circumstances in the story?

I would say that she’s a child who grows up fast, because she has to face some very serious events in her family and community. She also outgrows the kind of sheltered life she’s had before, in becoming friends with Marie-Grace and actively helping children who are less fortunate.

Were any of Cécile’s stories based on your own or your family’s personal experiences?

My father and my New Orleans relatives used nicknames for us, the same way her family does. Food is very important to my family, as it is to the Reys — especially when we’re celebrating anything. But on the other hand, maybe Cécile herself is a bit like I was as a girl: always listening to the grownups talk, and always asking questions!

What did you discover about New Orleans in writing the Cécile books?

What I discovered about New Orleans as I was writing these books is that there’s even more to love about this city.

What do you hope girls will learn from Cécile?

I hope that girls learn from Cécile that sometimes, true friendship finds you even when — or especially when — you’re not looking for it. It comes when you need it. She discovers an ability that all girls have — to bravely open their hearts to a bigger world than the one they’ve known.

Product Review – UNRAVELS

IMG_2501

Unravels is a very creative, cute and has a way to connect with friends. When I opened up the package I thought to be a plain pencil with cute designs but there was a secret about these pencils. The colors are vibrant and all the Unravels Wax Pencils hold secret notes inside. Some about jokes and riddles, lucky fortunes and friendship. They’re a creative way to interact with anyone. If your having friendship trouble, grab the “friendship” collection. Unwrap the paper note and it’ll give you advice or a wonderful saying about friendship to make you feel better. If your bored at home and you wanna hang out with the family, grab the “Jokes and Riddles” collection for loads of fun with your family. Also, if you have a class party or just wanna find your “Future” grab the lucky fortunes collection and find your lucky fortune in seconds. This is the way I see Unravels and how I can use them and did I mention, no need to sharpen.
Overall I think this is a wonderful product. The only draw back the paper note could be more sturdy so they don’t rip to easily.  Overall, this is a great product that I’m sure anyone would enjoy!  I did!!!!!!!!

These amazing color pencils are available at Perpetual Kid, Justice, Claire’s Michaels and Five Below.   Don’t forget to visit Unravels on facebook.

    Healthy Yummy Lady Bug Snack

    Here’s a fun healthy Lady Bug snack mom and kids can make and what an adorable presentation.

    What you will need to start:

    • Ritz crackers
    • Cream cheese
    • Tomatoes
    • Olives
    • Black paste food coloring or cut up black olives
    • Chives
    • Toothpicks

    Cooking directions:

    In a bowl, have the kids add in a bit of cream cheese and a small amount of black paste coloring, and mix. If you don’t have black food coloring paste, you can cut up tiny pieces of black olives.

    Set aside for now.

    Next, have the kids spread cream cheese on top of the crackers.

    Cut the cherry tomatoes up and have the kids place 2 tomato quarters on top of the cream cheese.

    For the Ladybug head, have the kids place an olive at the top of the tomatoes.

    For the antennas, have the children stick 2 chive pieces inside the olives.

    almost there!    Kids can take a toothpick and dip it into the cream cheese and black paste coloring mixture that’s in the bowl and use it to make dots all over the ladybugs. Or have them place the black olive bits all over.

    United Nations International Year of Youth Culmination Celebration

    Arianna & Monique Coleman

    Arianna & Monique Coleman

    Thursday, August 11, 2011  I had the pleasure to escort my daughter Arianna to the United Nations in New York City.   She attended as a delegate for the U.N. International Year Of Youth Culmination Celebration.  Arianna was chosen based on her essay on gender equality, there were 192 delegates ranging from tween to teens ages 11 thru 24 years old.    It was a day of inspiring stories from amazing girls and young women from across the U.S. and around the world.

    IMG_4173 Medium Web viewIMG_4176 Medium Web view IMG_4181 Medium Web viewUN+International+Year+Youth+Culmination+Celebration+7nBZadYO_JAl

    The event was hosted by the beautiful Monique Coleman which many of you might remember her as Taylor McKessie in the movie High School Musical.

    Monique was appointed the first ever United Nation Youth Champion at the UN headquarters in New York City last November.  She has raise awareness on youth issues, encourage young people to use their ability to foster progress in their communities and urge the international community to take responsibility on youth issues. She has visited 26 countries in the last six months.  Monique is also the founder & CEO of GimmeMo, a site she has dedicated to empowering youth and bringing awareness about real issues affecting tween and teens and to spotlight Hollywood’s commitment to giving back.

    Keynote speaker such as Farah Pandith, Begoña Lasagabaster Olazabal, Moira Forbes, Gina Otto, Ann Shoket, and more just to name a few were truly uplifting and many young girls share their amazing and inspiring stories on how they contributed to a positive world.

    The most uplifting story came from a young women by the name of Vivian Thakhuli moved me literally in tears.   She lost her mom when she was 11 years old to aids, no father and the responsibility to raise her 13 siblings.   With difficult challenges that she had endured with the help of The Tomorrow Trust, Vivian an educated young woman and an advocate for empowerment of young girls.

    Along with Monique Coleman, let’s not forget the founder and CEO of AllyKatzz, Denise Restuari who created a platform for tween and teens to speak out and together change the world for the better. Denise has created a safe online format where young girls can express and communicate their positive views.

    Meet young inspiring tween and teens who have made a difference and touched so many lives.  After the UN, the girls headed over in a chartered bus  to the French Institute Alliance Francaise where the celebration began.  The girls enjoyed a  fun lunch, fun games and activities.   Arianna and the girls helped filled backpacks for girls in need around the globe, filling them with items such as notebooks, sharpies, soaps, towels and much more that were generously donated by sponsors.

    Birthday Wishes Samantha Parkington

    samathaSamantha Parkington born May 26th 1895,  a bright, loving and compassionate orphan girl who was raised by her wealthy grandmother “GrandMary” in Mount Bedford, NY in 1904.   Samantha’s parent died in a boating accident when she was 5 years old.  Beside having GrandMary, another important figure in her life was Uncle Gardner who was very much a father figure to her.

    Samantha learns the realities of her Edwardian world – from her life of luxury to the prejudices and difficulties faced by women and the lower classes.  Samantha’s best friend is Nellie  O’Malley who has also been archived by American Girl.  American Girl first introduced Samantha in 1986 along with Molly and Kirsten.   Samantha is still till this day the most favorable and popular doll.  Her books were written by three different authors, most notably Valerie Tripp, and were the first of the books to be published. The first American Girl TV movie was produced about Samantha. It was called Samantha: An American Girl Holiday and it debuted November 23, 2004 on the WB.

    Although, Samantha doll was sold out on February 2009 and officially archived on May 31, 2009, you still might be able to purchase her new or used on sites like Ebay.   Samantha books, movie and mini doll are still available for sale.
