Disney Blog Hop

Welcome to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Disney and crafting are a magical combination, and we are so happy you joined us to day for this blog hop.  Some of the crafters participating in this event have been doing this together since 2011!  Over the years the hop has grown but one thing has always stayed the same . . . amazing crafting projects that feature your favorite characters from Disney and Pixar movies.

For 2016 we are going to attempt to have a hop every other month for the entire year . . . February, April, June, August, October and December.  If you are on Facebook you can like the group page so that you can be the first to learn about each upcoming event.  Just click HERE to go the the Facebook page.

To make sure you don't miss any of the fun, be sure to start at Shawn's blog to see all of the projects.  Just click HERE to head over to her blog and then follow the hop line up at the bottom of the post to see everyone's projects.

I just returned from a trip to Walt Disney World January 7th and want to go back already!!!  I got to see my friend Melissa Allore who was an original participant in this blog hop!

Before we left for Disney World, I wanted to decorate my Magic Band.  I grabbed the band from the last trip and practiced on that one first.

I took a fine tip paint pen and traced the Mickey head.  It was a little plain but better than blank.  I colored it in white (not pictured) but the paint did not cover well.  I was afraid it would rub off.  So back to Pinterest I went.

I found this Mickey headband image and traced it with my Silhouette Program and cut it out in black 651 vinyl.  I added my initial in a fun font.  Not every L looks good so I had to find one that I liked and fit the space well.

Tanner wanted his done too.

After 11 days at WDW, my Magic Band looked the same.  Tanner's T peeled off around day 9 - it lasted longer than I thought it would!!

My next project was inspired by a shirt that popped up on Shawn's newsfeed.  I traced the hand and used a font from my computer to create this shirt out of HTV (heat transfer vinyl) and my heat press!  My husband can wear it on our next trip!!! 

Here are some of our favorite pictures from this trip.  I kind of miss waiting in line to meet the Characters.  Tanner is 10 now and prefers riding the rides.  The only characters we saw were the Star Wars Characters and the ones at our two character breakfasts.

Before you go, make sure to enter to win our prize for this hop . . . a Disney paper pack from Queen & Co. 

The paper stack will not even be shipping out to stores until late February 2016, so you can have it before the stores are even selling it!  Note: Due to the fact that we received this paper stack so early, it is considered a promotional proof and there could be some slight variations from what will be shipped to stores.

Good luck, and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Making Love Signs!

I have been pretty busy painting wood signs since September and have neglected my blog a bit.  I find it easier to post to my facebook business page from my cell phone when I am away from my desk.  If you would like to see some of my work, you can see them HERE.

I am getting ready for a Love themed craft show and here are some of the signs I have painted:

These are made with pallet wood or fence boards.  I make stencils with my Cameo and paint with acrylic paint.  It started out as fun but has grown into a nice way to make some extra money for baseball, Christmas and vacation funds.
