Disney Inspired Gifts for Sale

With all this “down time”, I’ve been working on more creative endeavors to keep busy and work on bringing in some income.  I blame my friend Liz from TravelWithLiz.org on fueling the Disney inspired bug!  Some of the items are riffs on ideas I already added to my shop, and others are totally new… kinda!

Handmade Gifts with Love

Having found myself recently unemployed, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands.  So I’ve been putting those hands to work producing more handmade gifts for friends in exchange for both money and thanks.  Many have involved my trusty Cricut but others are more, well, hands-on like a small commissioned cross-stitch ornament I’ll be working on this week.  I’d be happy to put these hands to work on your custom, commissioned gifts as well!

DIY Disneyland Bleach Silhouette Shirts

I mentioned before we went to Disneyland a couple weeks ago that I’d tell you more about how our DIY Disneyland Bleach Silhouette shirts came out.  So I’ll make good and tell you that they came out pretty great, with one exception.  In all, I ended up making 7 shirts, 4 of which came out wearable after trials and tests that weren’t meant to be tests.  Let me tell you, this was definitely part pinwin and part pinstrosity!

2 Days until Disneyland!

For a 34 year old woman, some would say I’m far too excited to be going to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure with two other 34 year old women – and no kids.  The three of us are varying levels of Disney fans, and the fact is that none of us have been to Disneyland in years.  We have also never been there during the Halloween season with the ride overlays and fall decor.  To boot, I’ve never even been to California Adventure.  So we’re doing this.  IN 2 FREAKIN’ DAYS!

DIY Disneyland Water Bottles

I mentioned earlier this week my obsession lately with Disney themed crafts for my upcoming trip to Disneyland to enjoy their fall festivities for the first time and share in the 60th Diamond Celebration fun.  Since my travel partners are two of my best friends, Rachel & Lorenza, and no children, I’ve been looking for some crafts that don’t involve countdowns, reveals, or stuff that’s obviously for kids.  We had discussions on what kinds of things we’d need for the trip and what kinds of things we wanted to embellish ourselves.  One of the things we decided we wanted to make unique were water bottles.
