    Thanks!! If you buy a yudo the best advise I can give you is don't give up! It can be a really big pain in the butt at first! I wanted to pitch the thing through the window a few times! You can also "hack" it and use different chemicals and use different screens! You can find a lot of information online!

    I was thinking about going to a local shop and seeing what I can get but candy etc has to be pre-packed right?

    Oooh, I'm a good hacker. I have a (ProvoCraft-made) Cricut and I've hacked it with third-party software. Good to know.

    I would prefer to get pre-packaged candy myself, but I'm sure if you found something individually wrapped, you could then break a big bag down. You know? Good luck finding something! If you don't come up with anything, what you've got is amazing anyway!

    Ohhh, do you mind if I ask what the 3rd party software was!? I was looking for something to use with my cricut, aside from the cricut software!

    SCAL 2 works with the Cricut, but is no longer sold and I think any updates to the Cricut firmware will make it unusable (I have one machine I use for JUST SCAL and another that I use with the Cricut software). SCAL 3 works with new machines. Once my older machine dies, I'm leaning toward getting a Silhouette Cameo or an eCraft machine. There's lots of threads over on the Scrapbooking board! We'd love to meet you!

    I was looking at the silhouette! It seems like you can do a lot with it! Most of my scrapbooking is digital but I do a lot of paper crafts and stuff! I'll have to swing by the scrapbooking board! Thanks!

    Hi Erin!

    Wow! I love the pendants and magnets. Can you give me an idea of how you made the pendants? Do you think my crafty 9y/o daughter could do it?

    Thanks,
    Susan

    Totally up to you.

    I like to. I usually include a little note that says enjoy your vacation or something with our last name and city on it.

    How many people are signed up?

    On our Dream cruise last Sept 4th, I found it didn't pick up till June, around final payment.

    It mentions on the bottom of the page that the store owner is currently away.

    My DD9 just made homemade luggage tags for each stateroom in our FE exchange. We ordered the luggage tags from E-bay, and bought the paper and ribbon at Hobby Lobby. I thought she did a great job and they turned out cute! Just sorry that we didn't order enough extra to keep one for ourselves!

    Thanks everyone! She's pretty crafty, and had so much fun doing this.

    She'd say sure, just as long as she could go on the cruise too!! :lmao:

    Very cute! I've been looking for Disney ribbon. Too bad we don't have a Hobby Lobby! Your daughter did a great job!
