The necklace as described in previous post.

FE question

We did the FE for the first time in the MV of the Fantasy. We were under the impression that the giver was suppose to be secret. We got a lot of FE gifts with the givers name or business card. We're doing the FE on the Oct. Hawaii cruise.Do we include our name and cabin #? Thank you

Need ideas for ribbon FE gifts

I need some ideas for ribbon crafts for the FE gifts. I bought some really cool ribbon for our Hawaai cruise in October. Not sure what I can make with it besides little bows for the little girls on the FE list. Any ideas and pics would be appreciated.

If you're on the Dream departing next Thursday, May 3rd, PLEASE don't look! Highlight below for text

I made drawing pads for the kiddos http://www.flickr.com/photos/79505618@N04/6969547222/
and small goodie bags with a few pirate things and a box of crayons

for each stateroom, a bag http://www.flickr.com/photos/79505618@N04/7115630235/ made with my yudo

and a water bottle http://www.flickr.com/photos/79505618@N04/7115630565/
made using water decals

I have 2 concerns at this point! again; highlight...

I being that I didn't even think about it until yesterday but the bags have a sturdy base that I can't fold or anything! So they aren't going to be able to be put in the actual FE! Can I leave it on the floor in front of the door or hang it on the door nob or something?

The next is what to put in the bag with the water bottle! We have a lot of adults on the cruise so I want to put something extra in there! There is no way I'll have time between now and next week to make something else! But what should I put?!

Those are really cool! I've been eyeing the Yudu for a while now...you've got me thinking I neeeeeeeeeeeeeed one

You should be able to hang the bags on the doorknob.

Is there something you can buy that is native to where you're from? Candy, etc.?

Thanks!! If you buy a yudo the best advise I can give you is don't give up! It can be a really big pain in the butt at first! I wanted to pitch the thing through the window a few times! You can also "hack" it and use different chemicals and use different screens! You can find a lot of information online!

I was thinking about going to a local shop and seeing what I can get but candy etc has to be pre-packed right?

Oooh, I'm a good hacker. I have a (ProvoCraft-made) Cricut and I've hacked it with third-party software. Good to know.

I would prefer to get pre-packaged candy myself, but I'm sure if you found something individually wrapped, you could then break a big bag down. You know? Good luck finding something! If you don't come up with anything, what you've got is amazing anyway!

Ohhh, do you mind if I ask what the 3rd party software was!? I was looking for something to use with my cricut, aside from the cricut software!

SCAL 2 works with the Cricut, but is no longer sold and I think any updates to the Cricut firmware will make it unusable (I have one machine I use for JUST SCAL and another that I use with the Cricut software). SCAL 3 works with new machines. Once my older machine dies, I'm leaning toward getting a Silhouette Cameo or an eCraft machine. There's lots of threads over on the Scrapbooking board! We'd love to meet you!

I was looking at the silhouette! It seems like you can do a lot with it! Most of my scrapbooking is digital but I do a lot of paper crafts and stuff! I'll have to swing by the scrapbooking board! Thanks!

I also found a bunch of High School Musical things for one young man who I'd heard loved it. We had so much fun participating in this!
Hi Erin!

Wow! I love the pendants and magnets. Can you give me an idea of how you made the pendants? Do you think my crafty 9y/o daughter could do it?

Thanks,
Susan

Totally up to you.

I like to. I usually include a little note that says enjoy your vacation or something with our last name and city on it.
