    I agree...but never for profit.:sad2: Which in this case is none of my business. Can you just imagine if us DISigners sold our images? I've posted thousands for free because I love doing it not because I want to make a buck. Besides it's not worth a lawsuit from Disney.:goodvibesYou have to be a DISigner here who has seen their images for sale on ebay to know where I'm coming from. We protect our own.:thumbsup2

    I understand about DISigners protecting their images, and I'm in complete support.

    In this case, however, the magnet for sale on Ebay is *not* a DISign.

    love your notebooks, I was thinking of something similar to that for the girls age 11 and up.

    really love the coasters - imagine carrying a ton of those onboard!

    Those really came in handy, and they're such a simple thing to do!

    Thanks - like I said, I needed something quick! I was going to include a gel pen with each one, but just ran out of time to pick them up. And, yes, I thought the coasters would be heavy, but there were only 11 cabins participating in our exchange and the giver did one set of 2 per cabin, so not TOO bad, but still pretty heavy. Al least they don't take up a lot of space!

    Just FYI for anyone making ornaments ... Michaels sells clear, round or oblong ornaments that look like glass but are actually plastic. You can't tell the difference. I used them on our last cruise's FE.

    I carried all of them to the ship in a plastic shoebox.

    Some of this may be a repeat. But I started my FE journey on the 15 day Eastbound Repositioning cruise. I wanted to create a collectible about each country we would visit. I did this FE on card stock using stamps from each country. This photo is missing a Panama stamp (actually most I gave out had a "Canal Zone" stamp which is the US territory that the canal was located in):

    When I did a four day Bahamian cruise in 2011 on the Dream I did a twist on it using coins:
    [​IMG]

    The coins made for a flimsy card stock, so for the Candian cruise I use a styrofoam type backer board. The rear of the FE has a little history of the Canadian Maritimes and some info on Canadian coins. The glue unfortunately expanded when drying and dried white. Since I ran out of some coin demominations, some FEs had less coins than others... I am showing a sample of each... but the ones I gave out that had all the coins did not have so much glue bleed as the photo sample here:

    For my Western Fantasy cruise, I may do a coin and stamp combination...

    Corinna! I love those hidden Mickey images! Could I possibly get a copy of them also? Thinking I could make a cute magnet or two for our door (for our upcoming cruise!)!

    Thanks!

    Hi Corinna!
    I am so sorry for bothering you, but could you please PM me too with the design?
    I hate to be a burden and I do understand if you feel that enough is enough. But I would really appreciate it. :-D
    It would look so nice with an idea I've been working on were I will surprice my DSs with our Magic Med cruise in June.
