Cool Sew much to do, sew little time - but it was worth it! New PTR link posted! ~~~~~~~~~

Or the TR could have been titled...

Am I insane? I took my two teen-age daughters to Disney alone.

Or...

Hey mom - Our logs are backed up.

Look - A Photopass photographer! Go, go, go!

Hold that bus, our Mom is coming - she just has short legs.

Ack! Girls... Catch that bus!



Really this TR could have had many titles, but this trip never would have happened if it wasn't for my sewing - and of course, my family sacraficing time with me, so I could sew. And that is how I named this TR.

First - for those of you that don't know me...

I go by D~. And I sew, I sew a lot actually. If you would like to read about my sewing adventures - I strongly advise you to check out my PTR Table of Contents - it will tell you all about how I learned to sew, and follow me along my journey of creating items to subsidize our trip to WDW. It might make you laugh, and it might make you cry, and it might even inspire you to try a new hobby.



I am the wife to an amazing man (Josh) - who tolerates my Disney obsession - and encourages my obsessive need to create and be creative... Not to mention - he is very creative himself.



I have 2 amazing, almost, teen-age daughters - who really never get along. They never have, and I have almost given up hope that they ever will.

DD #1 - Alli:


DD #2 - Victoria:


I am also the mom to 2 fur-babies...

Rufus - who died 4 days before we left on our trip. He was 12 years old and lived with us for 11 years. It truly broke our hearts to watch him suffer and to make the decision to let him go. He is still very much alive in our hearts, and we miss him so much.


Max - who is almost 9 weeks old. Josh adopted him while the girls and I were in Disney... He is just a cute little guy. We are looking forward to many happy years with him in our family.


So, that's all of us.

If you would like to read more about us - are curious about how this trip came to be - or about all the custom items that made this trip a reality, I have a very detailed Table of Contents in my PTR that highlights everything you need to know, in one convenient space.

I also plan to use this TR to display all my latest creativity... So, not only will you get a TR - but I'll also show you what I've been working on.

I hope you'll sit back and enjoy the (sometimes bumpy) ride, that is my TR.

The day before...

Mostly, I had been packed for weeks.

All along, I had planned and budgeted for 2 checked bags. At the last minute, I added a 3rd checked bag, because our suitcases were just too full. I am so glad I did this, as we really needed the space on the way home.



Josh, the great guy that he is, brought me my favorite Jimmy John's sub for lunch... Mmmm - that was tasty. Didn't take a pic of it though.

I also wasted way too much time on The Dis.

I managed to check us in for our flight - so that was good.

I did my nails - but I forgot to take a pic... However, I do have a photo of my original test run a few weeks prior:


And my toes:


After dinner, I did the girls' nails for them...

A went with a Minnie theme:


Of course, V went with a Goofy theme:


And then we went to bed...

Actually - Lisa and Judy - I was going to appoint you to be part of my decorating committee... You know, make this place feel homey and all. But I knew that both of you have been very busy - and I wasn't sure you'd have the time, so I figured, for once I wouldn't be presumptuous - and just let you all decorate when you felt the urge.

Glad to have you all here - hopefully everyone else finds their way.
