My niece came to stay with us for a 2 weeks during spring break, and we had a blast getting to know her, considering its been years since we have seen her last. She is an intelligent girl who discovered the beauty in music while staying here at our home. My Fiancé plays the Violin, and she had played one afternoon after work, and the first day my niece spent with us, over heard here playing. She crept upstairs to where my Fiancé was, to see what was making such a beautiful sound. When she found it was my Fiancé playing she asked if she could teach her how to play.
The next day after my Fiancé got off work, they got together and sat down at the computer to see if they could possibly find any violas that my Fiancé could order for my niece so she could take it home with her to keep practicing after she spent some time with her learning during her stay with us. They found the perfect one in no time, and ordered it. When it arrived at the house, they immediately opened the package and got right to it. My niece is an absolute natural, and is still playing even till this day. We are so excited to see how far she takes her playing from what she had learned during her stay.
A distant niece of mine is moved here a few months ago from Arizona, in hopes to start a new life and to open up her own Massage Therapy Business, since she has finally gotten her Massage Therapy License last year . She had plans of her own, with no outside help, to get things started with her new business ideas and plans. It didn’t take her long to find the perfect spot for her to make her dream a reality when she walked by an old abandoned shop a few blocks from my home, to buy and start renovating.
She hired a few friends of the family to help her do just that, and in no time they had got the place up and running beautifully. She purchased a large sign to put outside of her shop that she was so proud of, but she realized it wasn’t enough to get her name out there, even though her customers used the “word of mouth” to do so, it just wasn’t enough business like she had hoped for. I came up with a clever idea to help her out by sitting down at the computer one evening with her and searched the net for business cards to create and some ideas.
We ended up coming across a great site that offers the lowest price printing we could find, and needless to say we put in our order and ideas and in no time her business cards were all ready to start handing out one by one to each customer, friend, family member, or just a random stranger. Just doing this one easy task led to her great success in this town and she is now, within a matter of few months, the most popular and busiest massage shops around this area.
I’m so glad to hear that the movement that has been growing to make more girl games available for the young female population of online game players has finally made a difference. I know that while I was growing up it was a real pain in the rear to try and find games that would appeal to girls like me, except maybe Ms. Pac Man, and how many times can you play that without going totally out of your mind?
The other day I ran across a site easygirlgames.com that was jammed pack full of girlie girl games like, dating games, kissing games, make-up games, dress up games, make over games, fashion games, cooking games and games for Barbies and Bratz lovers as well, which I thought was pretty darned cool. I have a niece that just turned 11 last month that I sent an email to with the link to this site in case she wasn’t aware of it all ready. She is a good kid, an only child that spends a lot of time on her laptop and loves playing games so I hope that she will enjoy the huge variety of these girl games that they have listed there for girls just like her.
Something that I haven’t seen in so long are the paper dolls that were so popular back in the day before computers. I remember about 15 years ago I was going over to babysit my niece so I stopped off at Toys R Us and I bought my niece, who was about 7 or 8 at the time, some paper dolls thinking it would be a fun thing for the two of us to do that afternoon. She wasn’t impressed, nor was I. What a pain in the rear they turned out to be. It was a real struggle to get the things punched out, most of them ended up torn and bent up and the darn clothes wouldn’t stay on the paper dolls worth a darn, so we ended up trashing those after 20 minutes of frustration.
Now a days they have so many cool virtual girl games to offer young girls that make the old fashioned paper dolls really look out dated and boring. The computer makes the whole process less tedious and totally more exciting and I can see why the market has dropped out of the paper doll industry. It took a while for them to figure out that the need for more virtual girl games were a big issue and we are finally seeing a good amount of virtual girl games coming out and the girls are just eating them up as fast as they can produce them.
