Leap Year Babies

To celebrate those cute babies that are being born today, here are two choices of Leap Year Birth Announcement, one for a girl, and one for a boy. A photo of the baby can be added, either in full color, or black and white, together with the birth details. An announcement for twins is coming soon!

Celebrating Leap Year!

Leap Day is February 29, which is an extra day added during a Leap Year, making the year 366 days long – and not 365 days, like a common year. A leap year occurs every four years to help synchronize our modern Gregorian Calendar year with the solar year, or the length of time it takes the earth to complete its orbit about the sun, which is about 365¼ days.

If you are lucky enough to have been born on February 29, you share your birthday with 1/1461 of the population (0.068%) and so worldwide, you only share your birthday with a mere 4,791,239 people! If that's your case wish you Happy Birthday!

People born on February 29 are all invited to join The Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies.

Baby Shower Favors

When planning a baby shower, we want to make sure that the guests walk away with an unique and chic favor, that's also affordable for the party host. Some ideas may include: home made cookies, candy, candles, photo holders, powder cocoa bags, book marks, soap, note pads... you name it! For a special look, just apply a sticker with the same theme of the shower to each favor bag or box, that will add a finishing touch of class and thoughtfulness. Here are some samples of favor stickers and a photo from the Zazzle blog of how to use them.

Love Your Pet

We all know today is President's Day, and by the way, Zazzle is celebrating it with 15% OFF EVERYTHING on the site, but also today is Love Your Pet Day. I have to admit I don't have a pet, but if you do, today is the perfect day to show a little extra affection, handle him/her a special treat, or even get a customized item with your favorite pet on it.
