  • Happy Father's Day 2012!!!

     

     

    From all of us at Charming Chick -- we would like to wish all the Dads, Step-Dads, Grandads, Papas, Uncles and any other man who spends quality time teaching and enriching the life of a child -- a VERY Happy Father's Day!!!!!

     

     

    In honor of Father's Day here are some quotes you can add to any cards you plan on giving...

     

     

     

    Blessed indeed is the man who hears
    many gentle voices call him father!

    ~Lydia M. Child

    The greatest gift I ever had
    Came from God; I call him Dad!
    ~Author Unknown

    A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed,
    and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.
    ~ Billy Graham

    My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived,
    and let me watch him do it.
    ~ Clarence Budington Kelland

    By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right,
    he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong.
    ~
    Charles Wadsworth

    I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong
    as the need for a father's protection.
    ~
    Sigmund Freud

    If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right.
    ~
    Bill Cosby

  • Earth Day ~ 20 Things You Can Do to Help the Earth

      

     

     

    Earth Day is April 22nd. Many of us celebra and try to bring awareness to environmental issues on this day. Some background on Earth Day, which was founded in 1970, can be found on the website www.earthday.org

    Here at Charming Chick, we believe that the power to change our world lies in the products we buy every day. We also believe that  just because you're helping the Earth, doesn't mean that you should have to pay more or sacrifice style! Our GreenChickTM items are the stylish new way to protect our environment. These specially designed eco-friendly products are functional, trendy and affordable.

    In honor of Earth Day we have complied a list of 20 things you can this year to help the Earth. It's kind of like giving it a giant hug and saying thanks!

     

     

    1. Skip the bottled water and instead and buy a reusable container.

     

    2. Turn off your computer at night.

     

    3. Recycle glass, plastic, aluminum and anything else you can think of.

     

    4. Reuse by shopping consignment stores. They carry gently used clothing, toys, home furnishings and more.

     

    5. Turn off the water while you are brushing your teeth. This will save a lot of water.

     

     

    6. Say "no" to paper and plastic; instead bring your reusable totes on all of your shopping trips.

     

    7. Change at least one (but preferably more) of your light bulbs to the compact florescent bulbs.

     

    8. Only wash your clothes on the cold or warm cycle to conserve energy.

     

    9. Buy energy saver appliances when your old ones bite the dust.

     

    10. Adjust your thermostat one degree lower in the winter and one degree higher in the summer to conserve energy.

     

     

    11. Purchase items made from renewable resources or recycled materials.

     

    12. Group errands together. Before you head out the door get a plan together so you can take the shortest routes and get the most done.

     

    13. Maintain your vehicle but don't worry about getting your oil changed every 3000 miles. The cars of today can actually go at least 5000 miles which save you money and it saves oil.

     

    14. Telecommute whenever possible. If you can just work from home one day a week it can help save gas.

     

    15. Pay bills online to save paper and also request to have your bills emailed to you.

     

     

    16. Use rechargeable batteries.

     

    17. Bring your own reusable travel mug when you frequent your favorite coffee shop.

     

    18. Keep your fireplace damper closed so your precious warm or cold air isn't being lost.

     

    19. Recycle your old cell phone. Some companies will even give you a credit toward your new phone if you turn in your old one.

     

    20. Spread the word and make sure your friends and family know the right things to do toconserve energy and be kind to Mother Earth.

     

     

    Have a very Happy Earth Day!!!!!

  • St. Patrick's Day ~ How to Catch a Leprechaun

     

     

    Leprechaun's are tricky little guys! They are also quite mischievous and a tad bit naughty -- but in their defense they are trying to protect their pot  'o gold. Do they visit your house? If you are lucky enough to have a leprechaun visit you on St. Paddy's Day you may wake up to some funny things around the house. Your food may be green, your chairs turned over or you may find gold dust scattered around your home. You may have a bit of a mess to clean up -- it's surprising just how strong these pint sized cobblers can be!

     

     

     

    If you and your kids want to try to catch a leprechaun this St. Patrick's day you'll want to build a trap! That's right -- if you are clever enough to devise a leprechaun trap that can trick a trickster -- well then, you may just get a pot o' gold!!! How exactly does one go about building a contraption fit for catching a leprechaun? It just takes a little creativity and some careful planning. Gather your boxes, cans, nets and egg cartons. Grab some glitter, glue, yarn and stickers and get to work!

    I found the adorable leprechaun trap pictured above on TheCraftingChicks.com. Click on the photo for their blog post for the details on how to make this or at least glean some inspiration to create your own. I don't know how any leprechaun could resist a temptation like that!

     

     

     

    (Photo via www.familyfun.com)

    This leprechaun trap was featured on FamilyFun.com along with a couple of others. Just click on the photo above to go to that post and find the instructions on how to make it. I think my kids have decided to give this one a try. We are sure hoping to finally catch the pesky little guy who visits each year and makes mischief. He's quite sneaky and pretty clever. We haven't been able to catch him, but perhaps this year we will -- will you?

     

     

     

  • Leap Year 2012 Fun Facts ~ What is Leap Day?

     

    It's Leap Year again! You know that it comes around every 4 years but do you know why? What are some of the traditions associated with the holiday? What do people do who are born on February 29th do -- that's got to be a little strange, right? What would happen if we decided to do away with Leap Year all together? Well, in honor of the day we thought we could help by answering a few of those questions and also provide you with a few fun facts you can share with your friends come February 29th.

     

     

     

    First, we'll start with the Days of the Month Poem in Honor of Leap Year. I found 88 versions of the traditional Mother Goose Poem On the website LeapYearDay.com but this is Version 68:

     

    30 days hath September,
    April, June, and November.
    All the rest have 31--
    Just a minute, we’re not done!
    February’s the shortest one.
    With 28 most of the time,
    but in Leap Year twenty-nine.

     

     

     

     

     

    Leap Day Facts

     

    ~ Supposedly around the 5th century the tradition of women proposing men on Leap Day began. Folklore states St. Patrick officially set aside February 29th as the one day that women could break from tradition and propose marriage to their fella. Leap Day is not to be confused with Sadie Hawkins Day, which is November 15th.

     

    ~ Born on Leap Day? Lucky you! It is said that people born on February 29th  posses special talents. What's yours?

     

    ~  There are a few issues with being born on Leap day, some Leap Year babies report that their parents wanted the birth date to be changed to either February 28th or March 1st. There have been some computer issues noted as well. When those born on Leap Day try to enter their birth date some programs won't recognize February 29th as a valid birthday! In addition, some folks have been teased and experienced licensing issues

     

    ~ The ancient Egyptians discover that the man-made calendar didn't match up with the solar year. The reason for this is because it takes the Earth a little longer that a year to make its way around the sun -- as noted on the Cliff.com website it exactly  takes 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds.

     

    ~ Also noted on that same website - is that leap year was to occur very four year but the Gregorian calendar  implanted a more precise formula stating that only years divisible by four would be included. This meant that were divisible by 100 would not be included but those divisible by 400 would be. Confusing? Maybe, but it keeps us on track. At least for the next thousand years or so.

     

     

  • Wedding Day Planning~ Ring Warming Ceremony

    True Romance Bride and Groom
    Every Day Low Price ~ ONLY $34.99

     

    Your wedding day is one of the most important and special events of your life. You'll spend many months - and countless hours - planning so you can rest assured that everything  will be just the way you've dreamed and hoped it would be. For many couples,  the guest list is one of the things on their wedding day to-do list, that they agonized over most.  You may narrow it down and bulk it back up to ensure all the people you love most will be there. With all of that thought and consideration that goes into to deciding who you want to share in your special day, wouldn’t it be wonderfully fitting to include those people in your ceremony?

     

     Bride and Groom Personalized Champagne Flutes
    Every Day Low Price ~ ONLY $23.99

     

    A growing trend among many couples is to have a Ring Warming Ritual as part of the ceremony. This deeply meaningful, yet simple gesture, is a beautiful and unique compliment to your wedding day ceremony. During the service, your wedding rings are passed around to all of your guests. Each guest holds the rings briefly, while silently saying a blessing or wish for your union. This ritual is ideal for small  ceremonies and is an interactive way to include your guests in the service. They will all feel so cherished by your gesture to include each and every one of them.

     

     

    Personalized Signature Photo Frame
    Every Day Low Price ~ ONLY $69.99

     

    If you are worried about your rings getting dropped or lost, consider placing the rings in a small bag or tie them together with fabric. In addition if you are having a larger ceremony - or if you just don’t like the idea of having everyone touching your rings - pass them just among your immediate family members. The passing can even take place during the vows, so that by the time you get to the ring exchange the rings will have made their way back to you.

     

     
    Glass Love Coasters Favor Set
    Every Day Low Price ~ ONLY $4.99 (or $1.99 each when you buy 24 or more)

     

     Your wedding day is your special day, so make it fun, unique and choose to include things that represent your personalities and your love for one another!

     

    HAPPY PLANNING!!!
