    Hi Everyone –
    Have not been on here in a couple of days and tons of catching up for me to do!

    Jeff- What design did you pick for your FE on Etsy? I am even getting excited to see what everyone has for a FE for my to put my gifts into. Your gifts are looking great. I am totally looking forward to having our doors covered in magnets. If you have not printed out our door hanger, just wanted to let you know it is Haworth.

    Andrea – You are so far ahead of me in the planning. I keep thinking I will get to the store to perhaps get a couple of new outfits, but I have not made it past the thinking stage. My guess is that my kids will be in the club during formal night anyway, so I am not too worried about them.

    Lori – Sew and have an embroidery machine… I so wish you were my neighbor. :cool1: What kind of embroidery machine do you have? I have been wanting to buy one, but have no experience at all with them. I went to Joann’s 2 days ago and the lady working there seemed to know nothing about them either. She could hardly get the graphic onto a thumb drive from the computer and then couldn’t get it to work on the machine. That scared me as I thought if she can’t make the machine work and is the sales lady, will I just get it home and have an expensive paper weight.

    Dorothy - Looking forward to seeing your FE. Should make it easy for me to remember that your gifts go there. :)

    FEE – Sounds like a good plan to me too Jeff to close the 3rd group. If there is anyone else out there that has been lurking and not joined and would be heartbroken not to do the FEE, please email me by the end of tomorrow. I have added nickiB, sasbass, and threeofhearts to group 3 and sent all of them link back in an email. Jeff, if you could add them to the spreadsheet you set up and the cabin location graphic, I would be forever thankful. You can not begin to imagine how helpful your FEE by Cabin list has been to me. I had been taping and folding all the lists together and now have one list that is just perfect for me. Thank you! :thumbsup2

    Ok..I am new on here. Very excited about everything. We are planning our FEE gifts & wondering if anyone can help me. Are there any basic guidelines, rules, minimum/max pricewise etc. That we need to know. Can't wait to meet y'all. Also are any of the kids(tween/teens hooked up to chat online amongst themselves?
    Thanks!! Nicki

    I ordered a pirate themed FE from Bullfrogs and Butterflies Boutique on Etsy. I should have it in a week or so. Here is the example of it.

    Sorry about your last name, I must have transposed a couple of letters when making the new sheet. I've corrected it on my end now too.

    I will get the graphic and the last tab on the spreadsheet updated tonight. I put down about 500 sq ft of laminate flooring in our basement today and I'm ready for a break. Doing those will be get me back into a vacation mood.

    FEE graphic updated

    Rule #1 - Have fun with it.
    Rule #2 - see Rule #1

    No guidelines - do whatever you are comfortable with. Hand made or store bought, or a combo of both, it's up to you.

    Love the pirate themed FE, Jeff. We put down about 150 feet of laminate a couple of weeks ago in our storage room, so I am positive that you need something to get you back into vacation mode after 500 feet. :goodvibes


    Nicki – No real rules for the FE. It is set up so that everyone can participate in a way that is right for them… both cost wise and time wise If you need some homemade FE gift ideas I have been pinning a bunch onto my Pinterest board. http://pinterest.com/off2wdw/fe-disney-gifts/ Just 9 more pins and I will have 500 ideas there. :)

    Hi all,

    If it's not too late I'm going to jump onto the Group 3 Fish Exchange list too. I've decided I'm gifting something I want to give to everyone. No worries if its too late for you to add us to what you're doing.

    Happy New Year everyone! party:

    Beth-I may be ahead with clothing, but I'm way behind with getting our FEE gifts together! I haven't even started yet. :scared1: I have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to do, I just need to get going.

    Nicki-I have a 13 year old DD too. However, she doesn't do e-mail or facebook or any of that, so hopefully our girls will meet up on the cruise. I'm a little worried about her this cruise because she is pretty shy and doesn't make new friends easily unless they approach her. Our last 2 Disney cruises her BFF's family cruised with us, so they stuck together in the clubs. I unsure if I will even be able to get her to go to the clubs by herself. :confused3

    Then we should definitely meet up with our girls. We've been on several cruises and my kids have always always made friends and had such a blast in the clubs...especially my DD, who loves her independence. She is also pretty shy, but still has such fun. I can't imagine a Disney Cruise not being the best yet for the kids.

    Oh that doesn't sound good about the lady at JoAnn's! If you're truly interested, I'd see if there is an actual sewing machine store near you - My local one is a Brother dealer, so that's what I have. My embroidery machine is a Brother PE-770 - only a 5x7 hoop so I wish that was bigger, but the 6x10 hoop machines are $$$$$$! I also have a Brother serger and a Janome (Brother company) sewing machine, so I'm kinda partial to Brother I guess, but they've all been good for me so far!

    I'm one of those crazies who sews clothes for the kids to match any and all occasions - Disney trips included! Well, my son doesn't really want me to make him anything this trip - I guess he's too cool now for all that - but my daughter is all about it! Wow, that was probably way more information than you bargained for, huh?:rotfl:

    Whatever you do, I'd steer clear of Singer brand - I hear nothing good about them.

    I so wish I could sew. ;) My mom and grandma have both tried to teach me and I still can't even hem a sheet. I sew like a drunk person (according to my mother). Having to pay for things like the FE make the sewing bug even stronger! Maybe ill give it another shot this summer.

    Yes, groups are now closed and locked in. Several families wanted to be part of more than one of the groups so that is why you see some in 1 and 2 and several in all 3.

    Thanks for the advice Lori. I will look to see if we have a Brother dealer in our area.

    I am by no means a professional sewer, but do like to dabble a little. It is so much easier to dream up ideas for me than it is to actually make them. Plus, I find that most of the “tutorials” on the internet tend to leave out steps that they are doing when the camera is not running and it is those steps that give you the really nice finished product. :(

    Thank you, Katie, for updating the first post to show that the FE groups are all closed. I have really been enjoying making my gifts and can’t wait to be able to deliver them. :goodvibes

    dismom73 and nickiB, my DD is 13 too. She is pretty mature for her age, but can by shy around new people. She is excited about the cruise, but not exactly thrilled to be in Edge with her 11 year old brother, so I am happy there will be some other girls her age there. :)
