another question

DO you have to give EVERYONE in your group a FE gift EVERY day when you participate in the FE?

Nope! The idea is to give a little gift to each cabin in the swap (or your group) once on the cruise, as will everyone else. have fun!!

NAH!!!! We have a sewing machine that I bought brand new about 10 years ago and my DW and I still don't know how to use it!! So ours will probably fall apart when the first gift gets put in it!!!

It's up to you. Some give one gift per day, some gift one gift per cruise. We had a small group of 12 cabins, so I had no problem delivering everyday. It only took me 20 minutes. I was super excited the first night and couldn't sleep. DH and delivered gifts around 1:00AM. It was also fun to hear folks delivering while in the cabin. The kids were so excited while the mom was shushing the whole time. Too cute!!

We came across two cabins who had FE's but weren't on our list. One even had a "Do you DIS?" sign on their door. Weird?

We love the excitement of delivering our FE Gifts !! We try to deliver them very late in the evening so they will be there when everyone leaves their cabins in the morning ! Is so cute to see kids sneaking around the ship delivering the Gifts and trying not to get caught !

Fish Extenders

We found our Fish Extender on Etsy.com

They have a lot of different designs for sale at reasonable prices.

Happy hunting!

FE Exchange

Do most people give one gift per cabin or a gift for each person in the cabin?

Here is my no-sew FE from our cruise last year... I had the ribbon, letters and mickey buttons on hand from scrapbooking but they are all something you could pick up at any store... The base was a shoe holder that I picked up cheap and cut to size...

OK, so I need some creativity help from some of the most creative people I *know*!

I've got this long red "thing" that I used when I was teaching. But, it's got WAY too many pockets (there's just 2 of us, and it's got 12 pockets. I hope I NEVER have use for all of those pockets! LOL!!! ) The "white" things are actually clear holders for pocket labels.



How can I "spruce" this thing up and make it look more Disney and more "FE" appropriate?! All suggestions (no matter how horrible they actually are ) are MORE than welcomed!!!
