Did You Know That...?

"1) You're an awesome person.
2) You always help me when I need you.
3) You never let me down.
4) You make me happy.
5) You are...."

A month ago, when I was down, I received a note from a close friend on flowery stationary stating reasons why I am amazing and how he is glad to have me as friend. To be man enough to go out there and even buy the stationary makes him an awesome friend to have. Thank you very much! I hope you all have a friend you really care about and can make their day like he did mine! Go out there and DO IT!!!

Birthday Gift Ideas!

Yesterday was my friend Calvin's birthday. A group of us made a list of what he likes and came up these items:

Children's Adhesive Bandages, Disney Princess, Assorted Sizes 20 each,

A Picture of a Rainbow-Vomiting Unicorn,

And a Black Forest Cake!

Goes to show you that even in college, creative gift ideas exist everywhere!

Fortune Cookie For You!

"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate." ~Oprah Winfrey

Other than the fact that the quote is a chiasmus and Oprah came up with it, I recently received this advice from a fortune cookie at the dining hall. Along with another fortune that told me "Don't panic!" and such, I suddenly wondered what it'd be like to receive a huge fortune cookie with a personalized fortune inside.

From personalized fortune cookies to pictures on oreo cookies, this site has got it all! It's fun and entertaining to watch someone's expression when they receive these gifts because, quite frankly, who'd think to receive a huge fortune cookie for a present?

The Thrifty One's Needs (Part III)

Today's post comes from reading an article from the well-known Times magazine. The World's Longest Yard Sale is obviously a sign of the times but at the same time, it brings ideas to the table. Yard Sales are great for little knick-knacks to give to people. Some people even sell relatively new things at cheaper prices than Amazon or Ebay. I mean, how much more creative can you be than giving a Life-size Darth Vader away to your friend who's a Star Wars fan?

Beware of Giant Microbes!!!

Tell me that isn't the cutest thing in the world?? This picture was taken at a local game shop. I absolutely fell in love with Hepatitis the moment I saw him! There are many others and they are relatively moderate when it comes to pricing. These Giant Microbes are creative gifts and great for entertainment! Expand your horizons! Give someone Herpes today!

You Say GoodBye and I Say Hello~~

I absolutely love greeting cards!

Greeting cards are amazing. They are simple, lovely, and they are, in general, one of the most caring presents in my opinion. Of course, not just any greeting card, it has to be homemade to show someone you really care or a card that encompasses everything. Check out the link above to see some examples of the cards you can make using the instructions from this site! Make something just to say hello!

Homemade Gifts are from the Heart

Sweet and Simple.

The Thrifty One's Needs (Part II)

Holy cow, why didn't I think of this??

For those who love to knit, sew and crochet comes this website! Use your ability to blow people away with these simple gift ideas! Not only for those people but also those who love to cook or are proficient in computers or art, this website offers everyone a little bit of creativity in the art of gift-making!

The Thrifty One's Needs (Part I)

In today's economy, I understand how hard it is to buy an expensive gift for the Loved One. So, here's a way of getting someone something cute at an awesome price!


As dumb as it seems, it's cheap, usually creative and convenient. I've found a variety of great gifts at cheap prizes from dollar stores. I recommend searching up the different dollar stores in the area. The one closest to home might not hold what you need. For example, when my parents and I went out to lunch at this Japanese buffet an hour away, there was a dollar store nearby. I found the greatest gifts at a dollar each! From the ordinary gifts like cards and teddy bears to the unique ones like "Birthstone miniframes" and "Derek Awards: Lover (or Friend) of the Year" trophies, it's great for your loved on and your wallet!

Another great thing about dollar stores is the opportunity to fill up those Fun Packs (*wink wink*)! Stock up on the candies and teddy bears, guys!

Video Love~~ (Part 2)

The other video focused only on those who draw and using that ability to make videos, leaving out another key group of people. Here is the same song as the previous video but, instead of traditional artwork, the person uses animations to show his love for his dear Daniella. A great way to demonstrate his love and, in a way, much easier than spending hours upon hours drawing, inking and coloring pages. Have fun with this idea!

Video Love~~

Another great way of paying tribute to someone's favorite band/artist! However, it's very time consuming and requires some sort of skill in the field of art so not everyone can do it! If you try though, mad props!

38 Creative Gift Ideas??

38 Creative Gifts that are Cheap and Nice? Heck yes!

If you ever want to look at what's around, this is a great site! As it says, "How you spend your money is how you vote on what exists in the world." This link shows you some gift ideas that are not really heard off and gives you the prices of each. While I do not particularly advocate buying gifts, the ideas were too creative and not that expensive so I had to share this link! Hope you guys like it!

"Dear Loved One..."

Today's focus is on letters. Not very creative, huh? Wrong. The only thing that's the same between all letters is the fact that it's on paper and you write a message on it. Besides those facts, everything else is different. The language is different, the handwriting's different, the message, the grammar, the expressions as well as the little inside jokes you share with the recipient! So here's some ways to spruce up the original way of communication (that is, after the spoken counterpart):
