Disney Glasses

I'm not the only Disney cruiser this season.  Four of my friends are also booked on Disney adventures, with one of my friends cruising over Christmas.  How fun!  This friend approached me to make some fun stocking stuffers for the adults in her party.  I loved her idea!  She found some wine goblets at the dollar store and asked for Mickey heads in black and colorful dots in red and yellow.  We decided to use more of my new polka dot vinyl.  We stuck them on the glasses and finished them off with ribbon tied around the stems.  Adorable!




So adorable in fact, that I decided to make some for the adults in my traveling party for our "Bon Voyage Breakfast."  And I made the red plastic cups above for my boys.  I figured it would be a safer option, I am sure my boys will be wild with excitement on our cruise morning.  :)

Countdown Blocks

I have been wanting to make countdown blocks forever!  But as usual, I craft for others before I craft for myself.  :)  I decided to make a set of countdown blocks for each of my boys' school teachers.  (Actually both of my boys participated, I insist on them helping pick out or make gifts for their teachers.)  Both teachers are expecting little bundles of joy before the end of the school year. 

The first teacher is expecting a girl and her classroom is decorated in pink, black, and zebra stripes.  I designed blocks to match:


The second teacher is expecting a boy, so I went with a bright color scheme:


My personal twist to the countdown blocks is to use chalkboard vinyl on the front.  I like the idea of being able to personalize and update the blocks to celebrate specific events.  Plus, you can choose to countdown weeks or days. 

Now I need to find the time to make my own set of blocks!  :)
