    Here are our doors from the August 15, 2009 cruise on the Magic. This was after I started giving away magnets so there are a few gaps where magnets were taken...unfortunately someone also took my Mickey Ears. I probably gave away 3000+ magnets on this cruise. I had created about 190 peace magnets (I printed at least 5 of each), 100 or so Mickey magnets (I printed at least 5 of each), and three different styles of letters...nautical, rainbow mickey head, and mickey characters (I printed between 4 and 50 of each letter). You can see an example of the letters on the door on the right. In the end, I came home with maybe 1 lb. of magnets...I brought 50 lbs. Almost everything I put out on the door was given away, but I just got tired of putting out more magnets and so had a few to take home. I started using any surface to put out magnets...all of the panels between cabin doors are metal, so I was able to spread out and put magnets all over.

    I also gave away about 50 pairs of black Mickey Ears to the cabins around me...unfortunately after a couple days somebody stole one ear from each of the doors. It was sad.

    The Fish Extenders were made by my sister who is amazing with a sewing machine. The dowel ends are antenna toppers.

    I have powerpoint files of all the images of the magnets I gave away...let me know if you want one with a PM including your email address and what you want...I can't send the files via PM. All of the images were downloaded from the internet, manipulated in paint or photoshop, and fit into a circle in powerpoint. I have four files....ears (black or rainbow), letters, peace circles, and mickey circles. Forgive me if I don't get back to you right away....I only check my PMs a couple times a week.

    Yes, my DW made them on a cricut for our last cruise. She made 4 -- a different Mickey one for each of our three boys and the Minnie/Mickey one for our door. She plans to do some more this cruise for my DSIL/DBIL's stateroom door.

    Ours from Oct 2008 (actually these are on our door at our house -forgot to take a picture on the ship):

    On this cruise, I had a couple of little children who loved our Mickey Heads and I gave them some. Their mom said it really made them happy. I decided that I would always make some to give out to people if I ever cruised again.


    And from our May 2009 cruise:

    The mickey heads are the paint chips from Home Depot. I peeled off the head and put a small square sticky back magnet on the back. I made well over 200 of them and passed them out to all kinds of people. I would go down the hall and if I saw a room that had children, I would put 3-4 mickey heads on their door.

    On the cruise meets boards, people find their cruise, and there they will find others cruising the same time. On your cruise meets board, if someone wants to start an FE gift exchange, thats where it'll happen and thats where people sign up for it. The Fish Extenders have pockets in them that treats and small gifts are put into by others in the Gift Exchange. It's like a Secret Santa.

    Visit the cruise magnets and graphics links thread a few up or down from this thread. Once there, either request blanks of any disigns you see and like and personlize them yourself, OR request personalized disigns from the disigners there. Milliepie has a link to her photo bucket album in the bottom of her signiture in each of her posts, and you can access my album by clicking on any of the thumbnail photos I've posted.
