bump!



Just a quick bump! I love the ideas - and sometimes turn them into Christmas gifts, too!

Thanks for the bump. I've been meaning to do this.
Disney Fantasy 7 night Western Caribbean - Oct 13th~20th....
Coloring books

Honorary Pirate Scroll

Jack Sparrow's Guide to Being a Pirate

Inside pages

Back Page

I noticed that a lot of people made cook books so I decided to try my hand at recipe cards. They worked out pretty good

Packed up and ready to go

Magnets from Vistaprint

Mini Clipboards

Packed and ready

Teenage girls recieved a princess pendant while boys got a key chain

I saved myself a ton of time by investing in a $20 laminator. It worked out great. Then I added celebration magnets as well as candy, stickers, tattoos...you know the drill. We had a great time delivering these and recieved some great gifts in return. This is a must for our cruises.

You want to check with DCL about what they'll accept as shipment. The Aleve might be an issue, so if you call them they can tell you if you would be able to send those with the Aleve already in them. If not, you could carry on the Aleve and send the rest and quickly put them in the boxes before delivery.
When you say send what do you mean by that. Can you send your FE Gifts to the ship so you don't have to pack them? I'm going on my first cruise May 2, 2013 and I am just trying to get all the information I can.

I am so super excited - my cruise is just a short 75 days away and when I first posted in the meet thread for the cruise no one responded for months - I even stopped checking it everyday and just started checking once in a while and well now we have several people in our group and several doing the FE. I am so super excited about what I made and want to post pictures sooooo bad, but I don't want to ruin the surprise for those in my group that may be looking in here! So I have been taking pictures as I finish one thing (I think I am making about seven things per person for a six night cruise - oh well I am an over achiever I guess). So I have decided that the night before I leave I am going to go ahead and post them - I figure no one from my cruise would be looking at the FE thread then - they would be too busy of course!!!

I wouldn't be so sure I love when people make things so I promise I will be in Houston that night and flying so I won't look. We won't land till 11pm so I am going straight to bed. I will post on the DIS most likely before leaving port but I promise not to look here!!

We have 77 Cabins Participating in the FE on the East-Bound Panama Canal cruise!! Thankfully I ordered a few extras of what we're gifting as there were some late comers. I won't post what we made until after the trip - I just need to remember to keep a photo b/c we didn't order enough to keep some for ourselves!!

I hand pianted (not so well on some) mickey heads on the side of the dice with 1 dot, decorated the dice holder and then included some games along with balnk paper that could be played with the dice. I also made pens to match.
I love this idea... I first thought of this and Yahtzee came to mind...... I have over a year to come up with something creative... But I have already seen so many neat and creative ideas....

I would think the Key Chains are a great gift for the boys over 14. Water bottles, and maybe nerf football or something.

I have been wracking my brain trying to get an idea of what to do for the FE for my cruise in 5 weeks, and now that I see these nice ideas and gifts you artsy people made...well...I think my ideas are very inadequate now

Has me thinking that this might be an expense I cannot afford
