However, a lot of people say they bring a little something from their hometown, so today I went to our Visitor's center, and came back with a stash. I live in Mooresville, NC, otherwise known as "Race City USA" due to its very strong connection to the Nascar Race shops in the area. I explained about our cruise meet and my FE group and asked the lady at the desk for a few "free" postcards, thinking that would be nice. She gave me PACKS of Nascar postcards, a Nascar race shop tour brochure and pens and post it notepads with our town nickname on them. I plan on including these with my hand made gifts. Of course, if you're not interested in Nascar, they won't be interested in the postcards or tour brochures, and I expect those might get pitched. But everyone needs a pen and a post it notepad, right?

Isn't that great?!
It was also pretty reasonable - about $10.
Just had to share!
Just looked it up online, and though it's only available for purchase in stores, it is only $4.99!!! Very nautical looking too!

I used this for our FE on our cruise last month. I personalized it with Disney appliqués on the pockets and sewed on Disney ribbon long enough to hang it from the fish. It worked great!

We cruise two weeks before you and we had closed our FE group on Christmas day - then reopened it when we realized alot of people found out about their cruise for Christmas - then closed it again on January 4th - then all of a sudden there were like 10 more families that wanted to join. What they did is they started a second FE group - so maybe there are some other late comers that would start a group with you. And no I don't think it is stupid to do stuff for your family. I have FE gifts for my own kids that they don't know about. They have seen all of the stuff for all the cabins, but they don't know about the extra stuff I made for them.

I hope no one from my cruise is reading because I made coasters. What I did is I made one coaster for each family member - it has the ship, the dates, and their first name. Each family had four to five people so some are getting four and some five. We had one mom and daughter and I did make her two extra with no names, but I really did that because she is traveling with inlaws so I thought she might like to share them with them or keep them for herself.

Has anyone joined the FE only to have a second one open later, and then switch from the first to the second? Just curious
