Michael McMillan's newest release “Pink Bat” will turn your thinking upside down and get you and your team seeing problems as opportunities. Maybe you think this idea seems impossible, but you're about to discover: “Pink Bat Thinking” makes the impossible possible.

Pink Bat …Turning Problems into Solutions is an  inspiring story that will change your thinking forever.  It is the perfect gift for anyone searching for creative inspiration whether it be a family member, a co-worker, or even an Odyssey of the Mind or Science Olympiad coach needing to jump start their team as they enter the dreaded but inevitable stage of  feeling like the obstacles to creating a viable solution are insurmountable.  Remember “Pink Bat Thinking” makes the impossible possible.

Designate  your next teacher institute day,  company team building event, or any day,  Pink Bat Day!

Looking for innovative ways to inspire your team without investing in a major team building initiative?  Model your next Pink Bat Day after Smith College's Mountain Day where every year, the president chooses a beautiful fall day and announces a holiday  day off  to re-invigorate the soul by ringing the college bells.  Even though you most likely won't choose to give employees a day off,  incorporate creative thinking exercises and inspirational activities  into the day's normal routine

Deliver a Dollhouse Miniature Baseball Bat painted pink to everyone involved.  (If out of stock, consider this baseball bat penor Baseball Bat keychain)

Develop spontaneous thinking skills by creating 5-10 minute team creative thinking breaks.  Consider investing in an Odyssey of the Mind Spontaneous problem solving book

Create a spontaneous wiffle ball tournament at lunch.  Wrap the bats'  handles in a stripe of  pink duct tape.

Ask all employees to bring in canned goods to donate to your local food pantry.  Now surprise them and ask each department to take the collected cans and  collectively and collaboratively arrange them in a way to denote something special or unique about  your company.  Take pictures and post on the company website.  Now donate the cans.

Make it a great day! Make it a Pink Bat Day!

A Gift that Gives – Healing Hearts Jewelry

Healing Hearts   Healing Hearts Silver Ring

Healing Hearts

Party Idea Pros generally does not highlight jewelry but we recently came across a chic new designer who whose unique gemstone collection is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or any day:

“Gemstones are the spirit of the earth frozen in time. For thousands of years, gemstones have been treasured for their power to heal, energize and inspire. The design, stones and metal all empower you. The artful combination of these elements reflects your spirit and is yours forever.” Tamara Alter

Our favorite collection of Tamara’s is her Healing Hearts collection, created in honor of Tamara’s dear sister Stefanie who passed away at the young age of 43, after a brave and courageous fight against Ovarian Cancer. All profits from the Healing Hearts collection goes to The High Heals Foundation whose mission is to raise funds to develop methods for early diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer and aid in the discovery of a cure through research, advocacy and education.
