How to use: When you see a behavior from someone in the family (including parents!) put a special candle, designated exclusively for this honor, in the middle of the table. Everyone will know that someone has done something extraordinary! At dinner that night, light the candle and share the behavior you are honoring. Place the key that signifies this value in front of the plate of the recipient (or it can be placed around the neck with a ribbon). Take out the Family Values Journal, and jot the date, who you are honoring and a little bit about the reason. You will be amazed at how proud everyone is at the recipient and at how everyone else at the table starts plotting good deeds as well!

The While I’m Away Box is a delightful way to stay connected to your loved ones while you’re away on a business trip, church retreat, weekend with the girls, or a vacation with your spouse. It’s also wonderful for siblings who go back and forth between two parents and two homes. The purpose of the box is to fill it up with bits of you and lots of love… cards to open on particular days, favorite stories tape-recorded by you, notes, photos, or treats… something special to wear or play with that belongs to you, perhaps a t-shirt with your perfume on it, or some old jewelry. Even though you can’t be together, a part of you will always be with them. Personalize box with your own 4″ x 6″ photo.
Dimensions: 9″ x 7″ x 3.5″

We all remember the big events–the exciting trips, the new baby, the big fish that got away–but sometimes we forget the smaller snapshots of family life. The routines that shape our days, the school papers, the size of our child’s hand, the family’s favorite foods…All these take on a special significance when examined twelve months later. A time capsule captures these priceless details.
Hide the capsule in the house, garage, or attic. You and your family can decide when it should be retrieved. Given a child’s rate of development, even a few months may be long enough. Can you imagine your children’s delight at seeing how they used to write, or how small they were, or how silly they were?
This charming box is designed to store love letters, mementos or photographs. Instead of stuffing the precious love notes you receive in your desk drawer or your purse, you can keep everything in one place. Buy one for yourself and buy one as a gift for that special someone in your life – like your spouse, a boyfriend, your children, a favorite Aunt, a Grandparent or a special friend. When you give this box as a gift, add a personal touch by filling the box with a love note and sweet smelling rose petals or yummy chocolates. This box is a gift of love that you and your loved ones will treasure forever.
Decoupage-style box measures 9″ x 7″ x 3-1/2″.
