The painting is AMAZING!!! Even my 11YO was impressed and said he'd love to have one.

We received tons of lovely gifts, but in terms of very unique and noteworthy, we got a group of plastic items made with a makerbot machine that I had never even heard of, but my son had and was thrilled with the items. We also received locally-made soap from one family; that was something we had not received before.

WOW! What a nice gift. That would definitely hang in my house.

This is our first Disney Cruise and therefore our first FE.

I would love some feedback about my idea.

We are thinking about giving each cabin a plain photo mat with a marker. In the bag with the mat and marker would also be a note directing the recipient to drop off the bag at Guest Services so it can be signed and returned as an autographed souvenir.

The plan was to include a smaller bag in each with candy for the CMs at Guest Services as well as a label identifying the cabin # so it is ready to be handed it.

Since We are back, I wanted to show you the completed ones!

Hi guys, since we are back from out Alaska Cruise I wanted to show you a picture of the completed FE Gift we handed out. We only did one per cabin and there were only 12 cabins other than us that participates, so a relatively small FE group.

We made Custom Painted Vinylmations, My husband hand painted them all to look like the Fisherman Mickey and I used Photoshop to design the inserts and backing for the plastic packaging.

Thank you! I told my husband your son liked it and he was very pleased! Maybe we'll be on a cruise with you someday.

We will be on one of the NYC cruises to Canada in September. We have never done a FE before and really do not have any idea what to do. I really want to join in. I am going to have to do some thinking. You guys seem so creative.

AAshleySEG What kind of paint do you use on Vinylmation? I have a 9" one that I don't care for, and I'm thinking of painting it. Was even thinking about using chalkboard paint.

He used enamel paint and then clear coated with krylon for plastic
Chalkboard paint sounds interesting! Hmmmm...

I like the idea!! My only concern is actually a question.

Do you know how many items you can drop off at GS for signature? I for one, plan to drop off 2 or 3 things (if I can) -- two pillow cases for my daughters and one print mat for me. Not sure if I could drop off another one or not.

If so, no worries. If not, then your mat would go to waste (or I guess it could be given to another family that didn't know about the GS thing).
