Spring break is right around the corner…are you planning an escape to the Sunshine State? Then you absolutely need to check out this month’s issue of Orlando Magazine. The “Get out of Town” feature is full of great Florida destinations that you may have not even heard about like Amelia Island, the Hammock Beach Resort and a little town called Steinhatchee with its quaint Southern-style cottages. Here’s a link to this great travel information.
AND, you might also want to check out pg.33 and Denise Bates Enos’ article, “Gifts from the Heart.” Since Melinda’s idea for Persona Pails was “born” in Orlando, Denise was drawn to our story and included us in her feature! (see what she wrote below)
Beyond the Pail
Instead of using ribbons and wrapping paper, why not package gifts in a cute gift pail that’s a gift in itself? Persona Gift Pails come with stickers that allow you to create different character faces, including “Love Struck Lucy.” Each gift pail includes a “hair piece,” reusable stickers to create seven different “personas,” colorful shredded paper filler and a notecard. They’re $14.95 each and available at Girlie Girl Things in east Orlando (407-380-0012) and at personagiftpail.com.
On a side note, Melinda will be gathering in Downtown Disney tomorrow with a group called the Sunshine State Party Girls. What once started as a Twitter conversation and a lunch date between Melinda and Melissa from Truly Chic Inspirations has now grown to a list of 18 talented women and business owners who share a common vision of making their dreams come true. They have even formed a group on Martha Stewart’s Doers Into Dreamers on-line community! I can just imagine the buzz with that many creative ladies in one place – look out Mickey! We’ll be sure to share pics and more info next week! Have a great weekend!
