I'm just glad I'm not being stalked by the TagFairy. That could be embarrassing!

Nice to hear they did a good job! You really only hear negative things about TSA. Too bad as most that I've come across have been pretty nice. It's the not-so-nice ones that give them all a bad rap.

Haven't made them myself yet, but someone had cool ear bud cases they made with Mickey fabric and caribiners. (Maybe it was on the FE Facebook group). Anyhoo, she also found cute earbuds in the mickey shape for older boys and girls off ebay.

Good luck!

I personalized plastic cups with lids and straws, made personalized luggage tags with their name, favorite color, and favorite character, and bought cheap mickey shaped earbuds from ebay in their favorite color.

I will post pictures next Friday after we board the Magic for our first ever cruise! Hopefully no one from our FE exchange is reading this.

For those that have made heavier, breakable items (ceramic tile coasters, for instance!), how did you transport them? We are driving, so we could bring them with us, but I'm considering shipping them to the port, since that would be quite a bit to lug around until our stateroom is available. I'm just worried about how a box would be handled (shipped or checked with luggage), and obviously would like to avoid any breakage!!

Thanks for any advice/experience you can share!

We made 100 ceramic tile coasters for sets of 4. I put them all in a box and stuffed shirts around the box. I then put all of our fish extender stuff in its own suitcase. The suitcase was a bit heavy but it worked!

Yes, I am so sorry! We live 8 hours away so we drove and I did check it onboard. It was much too heavy of a suitcase to carry around. We got to port at 11:00 and the rooms are not ready until 1:30.

That is perfect, thank you so much for the info!!!!

I thought the same thing about lugging it around - we have a PAT of 11:30 and plan on exploring a good bit before the staterooms are ready.

Thanks again, you rock!

FE Gifts from December cruise

I've been a lurker on this thread for months, but got so much great inspiration from the two homemade FE boards that I wanted to share the gifts I made.

Originally, we had a fairly small FE group, so I planned for gifts that were a bit more time-consuming. That was a big learning, as there was a big wave of participants that came in at the end. I still had a great time making everything, but there were some long nights in the weeks running up to our departure to make sure I finished.

So, here's the results-- sorry I couldn't figure out how to actually post the Pictures here:

Welcome packets for each cabin with personalized magnets, wristlet key chains, shrinky dinks key chains, and a wordle souvenir magnet
[URL="http://pinterest.com/pin/439312138621154722/"]

Princess/Minnie tutu bags for the little girls
http://pinterest.com/pin/439312138621154740/

Appliqued Backpacks for the the older girls and all the boys
http://pinterest.com/pin/439312138621154720/

http://pinterest.com/pin/439312138621154731/

Zipper pulls for girls and boys
http://pinterest.com/pin/439312138621154723/

Coffee Cozies for adults
http://pinterest.com/pin/439312138621154728/

http://pinterest.com/pin/439312138621154727/

I've also assembled as many of the pictures as possible from these two threads on my pinterest page: http://pinterest.com/dzhenna/disney-...fe-gift-ideas/

Hope these are helpful! Happy Sailing!
