    I think I saw that idea on the non-crafty FE gift thread. Can't link to it on my phone, but it was on the first page or two of the cruise board.

    ... I am so excited about my fish extender gift.. I'm trying my hands at sewing.. (gasp). I'm actually in the sewing stages of making my extender...
    anyways, I found really cute Mickey fabric and plan on making change purses.. is this something you guys would be interested in getting.. I hate to begin working on them and have people not like...
    I hope all this planning helps the 3 months 3 weeks pass quickly lol

    Change purses are a wonderful idea. And you can use it for things other than coins. Like a safe spot to store a necklace or earrings overnight. :)

    Now if you meant "you guys" in the literal sense I am not too sure about them. ;) but this gal would like. :)

    Yes, that is the FB page it is on. Search in Photos. There are two pictures. She used a Colorful plastic bowl to keep everything in.

    I'm not the one you're talking about cause I forgot to take a picture but I did something very similar for teen/tween boys. I made ice cream topping/mix-in kit. I found two pack ice cream bowls with spoons at Dollar Tree. I kept them in the two pack and filled with a full pack of M&Ms, a few fun size candies that could be crushed easily, a pack a peanuts, a small pack of Oreo type cookies, and some small Nutella packets. I then put in a quart size bag (barely fit) then topped the bag with some cute bag toppers I made. I thought they looked really neat and wished I had taken a photo.

    Hello Corinna,

    Thank you for PMing the hidden Mickeys for the necklaces. Unfortunately, it never came through. Could you please send it again.

    Thanks Kathryn

    We aren't cruising until next year but I'm so excited to get started on our FE gifts...wish I knew about them before. I have a couple of questions about them:

    * Since we are a group of adults going...Should we have a pocket for each person or just one for the group?

    * Are there any gifts that people feel are overdone?

    I don't think it matters how many pockets you have, so long as there is enough room to hold several gifts. Some families use a single canvas tote bag for everyone. It's totally up to you. I have a personalized FE with 4 pockets for my family (one pocket for adults, one for each of my 3 kids) and a second generic FE with two pockets for when family/grandparents travel with us.

    Gifts that are overdone? We got a heck of a lot of magnets on our last FE (like 20+). I like magnets, but I just don't need that many. Of course, on our next cruise I probably won't get a single one!

    Candy! We go way too much candy. We will make sure NOT to use candy in our FE gifts. :)

    We gave all of the candy except special theme candy from another country, to the kids club CM.

    I agree we had a lot, too. But I was glad that I could share it with CM.

    I made little sachets of talcum powder to remove sand from the beach. (like http://www.powderpouch.com/about ) Mine wasn't refillable, but had more than enough for several trips to the beach :) I made it out of a Mickey fabric.
