Just FYI for anyone making ornaments ... Michaels sells clear, round or oblong ornaments that look like glass but are actually plastic. You can't tell the difference. I used them on our last cruise's FE.

I carried all of them to the ship in a plastic shoebox.

Some of this may be a repeat. But I started my FE journey on the 15 day Eastbound Repositioning cruise. I wanted to create a collectible about each country we would visit. I did this FE on card stock using stamps from each country. This photo is missing a Panama stamp (actually most I gave out had a "Canal Zone" stamp which is the US territory that the canal was located in):


When I did a four day Bahamian cruise in 2011 on the Dream I did a twist on it using coins:


The coins made for a flimsy card stock, so for the Candian cruise I use a styrofoam type backer board. The rear of the FE has a little history of the Canadian Maritimes and some info on Canadian coins. The glue unfortunately expanded when drying and dried white. Since I ran out of some coin demominations, some FEs had less coins than others... I am showing a sample of each... but the ones I gave out that had all the coins did not have so much glue bleed as the photo sample here:



For my Western Fantasy cruise, I may do a coin and stamp combination...

Corinna! I love those hidden Mickey images! Could I possibly get a copy of them also? Thinking I could make a cute magnet or two for our door (for our upcoming cruise!)!

Thanks!

Hi Corinna!
I am so sorry for bothering you, but could you please PM me too with the design?
I hate to be a burden and I do understand if you feel that enough is enough. But I would really appreciate it. :-D
It would look so nice with an idea I've been working on were I will surprice my DSs with our Magic Med cruise in June.

Hi Corrina-

I already have the file, but I was wondering, did you give them as pendants or necklaces? If necklace, what type of chain did you use?

Hope all is going well.

I have done both. I did not use a chain, but got ribbon necklaces from Ebay.

That sounds nice-did you use one color for all? Trying to picture what color would go with all of them.
