I made my first post here on the DIS Collectors board. I was looking for Villain character pins so I could make a Villains pin set. I did not like the one Disney made, although I do like the pins :D , and decided to make my own which I still haven't finished. :rolleyes:

In the last 13 months I have been bitten so deeply by the pin bug that I doubt I'll ever get him to let go! I have waited in lines at 4a.m. (something I thought I was over after after trying to get concerts tickets as a teenager) and even enjoyed it! (flashlight pin trading!) I have traded with people all over the USA and even a few from Japan, France, England, Canada and Germany. I have been to WDW as many times this year as I have in my entire life prior to 2001. I have become a moderator on PinPics and come to be known as ..........and Dom.

But the best part of all I have made some great new Disney friends and strengthened a few existing friendships all through pin trading!!!! I want to thank Pete Werner for helping to make this possible and all the people on this board for the wonderful community that exists here.

I look forward to the next 13 months!!!

Yes, Kath, 13 is a lucky number for me. My very first youth soccer team won their first game on Friday the 13th. It has popped up alot since then, it is my extension at work, as does the combination 67. Definitely pops up more than it randomly should.

Donna, no princesses are DEFINITELY not my style!!!

Barb, I may have to come out there this June if the reports I'm hearing about the Spring pin event is correct. I'm hoping it is early June as Late will be out of the question.

I should have picked up on the significance of the 13 months sooner, but I'm still recovering from my week at WDW. Of course with Dom we don't celebrate 1 year, we celebrate 13 months! And the reason Dom comes after the Three Caballeros has NOTHING to do with his importance, it's just the the three of us have been around longer. We coined the 3C name before Dom joined us and we just could NOT come up with a Disney foursome name. Besides, the boards wouldn't be the same without the Caballeros now, would it. So please allow us to claim our seniority but know that Dom is our #1 "AND".
