Which ones did you get? They are stunning arent they! Happy fathers day by the way. Shipping prices are such a pain arent they.
We got the Bambi and POTC boxes in January, and yesterday I recieved the Mickey "sorcerer's apprentice" box.

Yep, shipping anything here is a costly pain. My wife buys a lot of scapping supplies and the only way to make it worthwhile is to order up big. Same with Amazon.

Thanks for the fathers day wishes.

That would be such a cool surprise!

The POTC one is really great as is the Sorceror. I have found a local store that has them on Ebay but I kind of want to get them at Disney as it will mean more to me, weird I know but I will have more time to save that way....unless of course a family member is reading this and decides to treat me

My want list grows daily frankly

Awww those are lovely I've just been looking at all the different ones online and I couldnt choose my favourite, they are all so pretty and unique!!

I'd love to be arty enough to scrapbook but I tend to lose patience as i'm not very artistic I love looking at everyone else's scrapbooks - some of them are amazing and so much work gets put into them.

We mostly collect pins, all 4 of us, we have thousands of pins. We display them similar to cpdwiz, we use cork boards and have a few framed sets up as well. We have some in our bedroom, 1 set in the hallway (girls' silhouette framed with silhouette pins around it) and the girls each have their own sets as well as our books. We have quite the plethora of pins! LOL I also like the "tins" that you get when you buy tea, hot chocolate, lemonade etc etc. I love to display them in my kitchen....OH I almost forgot, I also have a dry erase board framed in cork that I display food related pins on, it's super cute and a lot of fun!

Like several others I collect pins. That is by far my biggest collection with over 100 pins. Mostly I collect Disney stuff in general...I have a few mini snowglobes, some old little figurines they used to sell at the Disney Store (they were called Tiny Kingdom I believe), some of the Precious Moments, and now I am getting into the vinylmations.

I'm going to have a go at pin trading while we are there in december, never done it before so wish me luck I've found some albums on the disney website that you can store them in, but I love the idea of displaying them on the wall somehow The frame in your kitchen sounds lovely!!

Precious moments are beautiful arent they! We had one of the ornaments as our wedding cake topper

I've been collecting 101 Dalmatians memorabilia since 1961! I have a huge collection of figurines, original artwork, cels, snowglobes, autographs, press kits... you name it, I probably have it. 5 curio cabinets, covered walls, boxes & boxes & boxes & boxes of toys and "stuff" in the garage. Big figs, pins, and lots more. And yes, dalmatians are the only breed of dog I have owned! Obsession? Spots, spots, and more spots.

My Christmas tree is total Disney. I've collected Grolier ornaments for years. My living room is all Disney for the holidays. Mickey's Clockshop drives everyone crazy!

My latest craze is collecting Disney Cruise Line stuff. My guest room is DCL. I just scored a bedspread on eBay. (Sorry, DCL) I hope this latest addiction stays limited to that one room.

I guess I need professional help!

Pins, of course. I like the vinylmation pins, but they are becoming difficult to purchase at WDW. And Disney is adding new sets of vinylmation pins at an alarming rate. These limited release set are now $16.95 a box, for two pins. At some point, I'll draw the line.

[QUOTE=cpdwiz;33464804]We have over 800 and pretty much display them like this:

What a wonderful collection! Quick question for you... how do you anchor the pins in the frame? Once the pins are displayed, are you able to take them out of the frame and still wear them? Thanks!

Well I've decided to give pin trading a go on our next trip, I've bought some pins ready to trade - so hopefully it will be the start of something cute I'm hopeing to make a nice display for my spare bedroom wall.

I love disney items and buy lots of things But in terms of what I collect, I guess its anything to do with Stitch, snowglobes and christmas baubles Will post some photos soon

You simply push the pins into the frame backing, at least we do. And yes, you can remove them later. In fact I just unframed 3 sets of Tink pins so I could just add them to my Tink corkboard. Corkboards are super easy too, just stick the pin in and there ya go.

I have collected pins on my last two trips to Disney & will pick up some more when we are out there next year. I have just started to collect Chrsitmas Decorations & plan on having a christmas tree covered in Disney one day I few of the Disney Traditons Ornaments that my husband has bought me & a few large snow globes.

I did have loads of Disney cuddly toys however my two young nieces have reduced my collection over the last 2 & half years & I have recently lost my large minnie mouse to my youngest niece at least they have gone to good homes.
