    WOW! That's fantastic! Is that a special embroidery machine or a sewing machine?

    If they're being sold off eBay why not just include the link, the person wouldn't be on eBay if they didn't want people buying from them.

    Just to clarify... I rec'd these same decals on a cruise 6 months ago. I loved them. I contacted my FE counterpart and asked if she minded if I use that as a future FE gift (on a future cruise) and if she could tell me where she got them from.

    She gave me the creators ebay name. She was selling other Disney decals, but not DCL, on eBay. I contacted her and we struck a deal on the DCL decals offline.

    Here is a sample of what she is selling on eBay today:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Disneyland-...052?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a29065fe4

    In my last correspondence with this lady yesterday, she said she was beginning to get a lot of requests for these from you guys and would likely post it in eBay to deal with the small orders (where people want to buy one or two for their own use) and deal with bulk orders via email (but its entirely up to her how she wants to deal with everyones order).

    I dont know this woman personally and have no financial relationship with her.

    Best of luck!

    I didn't get any response from her yet, but I'm sure she got so many requests it will take awhile.....

    Edited...she listed them on eBay :)

    May I ask where did you get the DCL logo? I have a tiny machine myself and I'd love to make a few things for Christmas gifts!

    For our Cruise we're going on in April 2013 I made ribbon key fobs as part of our FE Gift. I just finished making 120 of them last weekend. Made enough so every person in our FE group can have one. They were fun to make & quite easy to put together. Ordered the key fob hardware, nylon webbing & Disney Cruise line Grossgrain ribbon online to make them. I'm making disney character magnets next weekend. I bought chipboard Disney characters from the scrapbooking section of our local craft store & I am attaching them to magnet paper (also bought from local craft store) & then cutting them out. There you have it Disney character magnets.
    Here is a link to the pic of the ribbon key fobs I made. Couldn't get the pic to load properly, sorry. I guess I'll get the hang of this one day.

    What are the rules for telling people about a website? I don't want to break the rules.

    I have a mailing list for crafters where we buy as a group to get wholesale prices on things you'd use to make FE gifts. (ribbon, key fob hardware, bags etc) I won't say the name unless someone says its ok, in the rules. I looked and can't find specific info either way.

    Jen,
    Can you private message me the website info for the FE gift supplies? That way we're not breaking any rules. That would be great.
    Thanks

    The rules (as I understand them) say that if you recommend someone, you are supposed to put the entire website address in the post. If the filters blank it out with asterisks, then that website is banned by the Dis and you cannot post it. If the website is not currently banned, then you are ok.

    You may not use vague language or PMs to get around banned websites to recommend a vendor.

    If the website is banned in the main forum it will be banned in PMs as well. Those are also monitored by the moderators. If you want to share information with someone that is not permitted by the rules of the Dis, you must use your own e-mail.

    I'm one of the people that organizes the "buys" so I wasn't sure how that mattered. I certainly recommend myself. LOL But there are 600 other people on the list that would vouch for the people that do the buys. I'll wait and see what the consensus is.

    I've seen people do it before but I just wanted to make double sure before I said anything.

    Better safe than sorry. ;)
