I haven't done the Fish Extender thing yet, but if I get the gist of it, there are all kinds of wonderful little $1 disney things for kids at Michael's right now--I bought my daughter an autograph book and a huge Tinkerbell pen, and each was $1. Most of them were Princess, Tinker Bell, or Cars themed. They also had boxes of crayons and pens you could wear around your neck.

I've been using the magnetic bookmark since the cruise, and I absolutely love it. The pens are wonderful, and I hope to use these ideas for our next cruise.

Thanks to all who are willing to share their great finds and crafting ideas with all of us.

I found a great selection of 99 cents Disney favors at Party City.

I am not crafty at all, but like getting the party favor items and making party "loot" bags!!

Oh, I know what magnetic bookmark you're using! So glad it's useful!

Can you please explain the fish extender thing and how we can become part of it. We will be taking our first cruise next year.

Hi yesmylove

Check out the Cruise Meets and look for the cruise you are going on. You can arrange to do a fish extender with others on your cruise.

I am going on the Magic on March 12th and we have a group organized if you want to check out the discussions to see how it is being arranged.

Have fun.

Our Target stores here in Texas have a ton of little Disney stuff all $1...princesses, cars, pirates. Just for some ideas!

FE Freakout

Don't peek if you are on my FE list! (please)

Well, I had thought I had the adult FE gifts wrapped up. I ordered these cute little mint tins and got them personalized for our cruise. They are common for weddings and you fill them with tiny mints like round tic tacs.

So, they came out pretty good, but then I got thinking, these mints won't actually be sealed. Would you think it strange, icky etc... to receive this?? People can just throw the mints out if it creeps them out, but that's not the point. Maybe I should be thinking of something else to put in them, but what? The tins are just under 2" square.

HELP!!

**If you're in my FE group, don't read this possible spoiler!**

Anyone have suggestions for a graphic designer? I can do just about anything on a computer, but I'm not as confident in my crafting to make some of these creative FE gifts I've seen.

I was thinking about giving the adults a CD that would include fun borders and other elements that they could use on their own photos from the trip (like a digital scrapbooking package). Do you think that would work? Or would that be too "digital" for some people??

What about designing a magnet for everyone's door?

As a scrapbooker, *I* would love that, but I don't think it would be something the 'average' person would use or know how to use. ArtsCow runs specials for free books (just pay shipping), all the time. How about a small autograph book, or a hidden Mickeys on the ship book?

Target also has Avengers dry erase boards. We have a Phineas and Ferb one that we use to write messages (where we've off to...etc). I've given a few as FE gifts.

Just discovered this thread! What great ideas! I hope our cruise meet ends up doing a FE exchange. Right now there are only 3 groups on the cruise meet. Hopefully more join in. I really want to order a FE (sooo not crafty enough to make one - HA!) but should probably wait to see if there will actually be an exchange or not.

Also - do you attach any sort of message or card to the gift(s) so they know who it's from or is it supposed to be annonymous? Thanks!
