These are what I made.

Highlight to read the description!

They are towel clips, for the back of your deck or beach chair. They are large clips (about 5 inches long) and each family will get a pair. I wish I could have done 4 for each family, but there were about 30 rooms, and I am also doing necklaces for the women like on my last cruise.

So question: (without giving too much away)...matching or mix and match? I like matching myself, and I did one color up and one down so they looked fun. Then I thought people could say, oh, we are the orange ones. I am also including a card that explains what they are, and that they shouldn't be used to hog deck chairs, or I'm taking them back!
They are so cute. I think I would prefer the mix and match option.

I hand pianted (not so well on some) mickey heads on the side of the dice with 1 dot, decorated the dice holder and then included some games along with balnk paper that could be played with the dice. I also made pens to match.








We absolutely loved ours.

Those were for the two boys that were in all groups and were made with our cruise fabric by a seller on Etsy:





And those I just bought in the store for the kids doing all groups:

This was ordered from a company that makes custom Hawaiian shirts. We ordered a bunch of shirts in this fabric on our cruise meet thread and people also had the option to just order some fabric.

I really like that crayon keeper. As a grown up, I still color (when I'm stressed out my crayons are out with a coloring book.), so I've been looking at those crayon keepers as something simple to sew up for FEs.

Great ideas everyone! Too many to quote pictures!

I really need to get some of these down for future trips.

I have mine all done for our trip in June, but I don't want to post anything (like most) till I get back.

Can't wait!!!

I made the notepad holders from wood pieces I bought at A.C. Moore Crafts, painted them the same color as the DCL wrapping/tissue paper I had which was decoupaged onto the painted board, added a giant clip, and then added a Mickey head scrapbook piece (also from the craft store) to the clip. The post-it notes were ordered from Vistaprint (they have the ship name, date of cruise, and port calls on them). The post cards I gave everyone (adults and children) have a photo of Mickey that I took during my May 2008 cruise...I added a bit of wording to the bottom of the photo ("Hello from the Disney Magic"). On the back of the post cards I added the date of our cruise along with the port calls. Post cards were also ordered from Vistaprint. (I did not make the Florida Key Lime Coconut Patties! )

I squealed about the post it note pad - it is SO CUTE and is proudly displayed at home now. I had to save one postcard for my scrap book too. Your gifts were AWESOME and I know we all really appreciated your coordinating efforts!
