DIY Some Disney Love This Valentine’s Day

Ok so Christmas is over (boo) and we are in the middle of another cold, cold winter (double boo). BUT – luckily Valentine’s Day is coming up (well, luckily for those of you who love this holiday – like me!). I know many think it’s just a Hallmark holiday or a waste of time – but I love it! I love the hearts and pink and red decorations and flowers and candy – and I especially love homemade gifts – they really show how much you care, and since I am a huge Disney fan, I love when my man makes me Disney gifts for Valentine’s Day even more! Here are some ideas/things he has made me that I hope can inspire the romantic in you:

DisneyGifts Cards

Even if you don’t celebrate or enjoy Valentine’s Day, a card saying “I Love You” is great any time of the year – and if you have the time and talent, making one yourself is always the way to go. Over the years, my husband has drawn me several cards featuring some of my favorite characters (mainly Disney ones of course!), and they are some of the best things I have ever received! If you aren’t sure you can make a card, a store bought card with a heartfelt message works too

I couldn’t believe it when I opened this one – talk about awesome! My guy had seen a similar crayon art piece online, and decided he wanted to do one with Mickey and Minnie on it for me! Check out the instructions on how to create your own Melted Crayon Art here

Isn’t this one fun? My favorite Disney movie of all time is Cinderella – so my husband made this for me, and I just love how he incorporated pictures from our fun times in Disney! Something like this would be easy to create for the one you love – or you can do something simpler and get a great Disney photo frame and put a picture of the two of you in it. Or you can always check out photo websites like Shutterfly.com which have tons of photo gift items that you can personalize (with pictures from your Disney vacations perhaps?)

Another idea that can really be personalized is a Disney gift basket – there’s tons of Disney merchandise out there, from the Disney Store (both online and in malls!) to almost any local store near you – Grocery stores, Target, Wal-Mart, Department stores like JP Penney – all of them carry an assortment of Disney apparel, toys, accessories, food, and more! Especially around the holidays – places like Target will have Valentine’s themed cards, candy, mugs, plush toys, snacks etc – grab a bunch and put them in a nice basket and boom you’ve got yourself an easy DIY Disney Valentine’s gift! Of course, if you wanted to get a little more creative, you could do a basket themed after their favorite Disney movie, or make one full of stuff for their next Disney trip – the sky’s the limit here!

While the main purpose of this post was to brag about how awesome my husband is and how he gives me great gifts (just kidding – sorta!) – what I really want to impress upon everyone is that making your own Disney gifts for your Valentine doesn’t have to be hard or expensive, and you don’t have to be the king or queen of crafting to put together a nice, personalized gift that shows them how much you care!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to everyone! Hope you enjoy this fun holiday as much as I do – I love scary movies and trick or treating and candy and costumes and decorating for it – it’s a great time for all, and now that I have a little guy of my own, it will be great to get to experience it all with him too!

20141023_112219

Here’s my little guy all ready to party! Ok well maybe not party – maybe take a nap. and poop. But still – he’s dressed for the occasion anyway! He also has a Mickey Mouse costume to rock out tonight when we hand out candy (what kind of Disney lover would I be if I didn’t have a Disney costume for him, right?!)

Speaking of Disney costumes, you can buy them pretty much everywhere now – costume stores, Target, Walmart, KMart – you name a store, they carry Disney Halloween gear! If you’re planning on heading to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at WDW’s Magic Kingdom, then you will definitely want to think about what to wear to it – costumes are encouraged and are a must for any trick or treating party! People really like to think outside the box when it comes to dressing for the party:

Halloween1

Toy Story Themed Toys – Love this as a family costume idea!

Halloween2

Haunted Mansion characters – so creative!

Halloween3

UP themed couple’s costume

Halloween4

These Mickey Bars look delicious, don’t they?!

Halloween5

Classic Couple Mickey And Minnie pose for a kiss!

So while you can buy premade Disney costumes anywhere, if you use your imagination you can probably come up with something even more unique and amazing to wear to the Party – whether it be at Disney or at home!

Enjoy your Halloween – and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Check Out This Awesome Disney-Themed Baby Shower!

Ok – so the title of this might be a bit misleading – but I can’t help but brag about how amazing my recent baby shower was! My mother in law made pretty much ALL of the decorations – from the garlands, to the wooden letters, to the silverware holders, to the cupcake holders and the cupcakes themselves – which contain a famous mouse made of brownie inside them! Check it out:

 

 Shower4 Shower3 Shower2 Shower1

 shower5

shower6

Oh, and aside from the amazing décor – she also went ALL OUT when it came to sewing – curtains and a valance, a crib skirt, quilt, bumpers, blankets, burp clothes, a teddy bear, onesies, teethers – all handmade, and all Mickey themed! This picture isn’t great, but you can see some of the items she worked so hard to make for us! Makes me feel so special – and we are so grateful that our little guy is already so loved (and that he is getting introduced to the Mouse so early in life too!)

 

Don’t worry – even if you or your family isn’t quite so artistically inclined, you can still outfit your baby in plenty of Disney – clothes, bedding, toys and more are available at most major retailers like Target, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and department stores

 

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Tote Your Stuff In Style (DISNEY Style Of Course!)

MeBags

It’s no secret that Disney likes to merchandise it’s brand – you can buy pretty much anything and everything you can think of emblazoned with a Mickey head on it. Pens, keychains, tech accessories, clothes, toys, and a personal favorite of mine – BAGS! Purses, totes, backpacks, shoulder bags, crossbody bags, suitcases – they have it all! Check out some of these adorable styles:

Bags Pixar

How cute is this suitcase for your little one? Or you – I am thinking about getting one myself…it’s hard sided which makes it nice and sturdy!

Bags Lesportsac

Or if you’re more of a “pack lightly” person (what is that like anyway? As I would not know ha!) then what about a cute crossbody bag from the Disney Lesportsac collection?

Bags Ipad

Keep your ipad safe and secure in this super cute Minnie tablet case

Bags Vera

And then there is the coveted Disney Vera Bradley collection – so coveted that its currently sold out online, but never fear – you can sign up for email notifications so you can be sure to snag one as soon as they become available

Bags Dooney

There’s a whole designer Dooney and Bourke Disney collection available online and at the Parks – I personally love this sketch type style – nice and big for all my stuff!

 

Check out the bags and totes section of the Disney Store, and be sure to have your credit card ready – as there are some really cute bags on there! Places like Target and Wal-Mart also usually have a small assortment of reasonably priced bags featuring some of your favorite Disney characters – so be sure to check those out too!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fun Disney Finds For Your Love At Target!

I am a HUGE fan of Target – they have pretty much anything and everything you could ever need all in one place, and the prices are usually more than reasonable. I would say if I had one complaint about them it’s that I seem physically incapable of walking out of there for less than $50, but that’s just because their stuff is so cute! Like these awesome Mickey and Minnie Valentine’s Day finds – aren’t they cute?

Mugs, candy, Pretzels, cookie sticks, plush Mickey/Minnies – they definitely have something for your Disney loving Valentine – so head over to your nearest Target and pick some up before they are all gone!

Personally I am hoping for the kissing Minnie and Mickey mug from my honey this Valentine’s Day (hint, hint!)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Pumpkin Carving With A Disney Flair!

TGIF FIsney Pumpkins

It’s almost fall, which means the candy, décor and costumes are out in stores and have got me thinking about how to celebrate Halloween! There’s always pumpkin carving of course, and while I do love the classic triangle eyes and nose with the two-tooth smile, why not branch out and try something different this year? There are plenty of Disney choices to pick from when it comes time to slice and dice up your Jack-O-Lantern:

TGIFPumpkin Mickey DarkA classic Mickey perhaps?

TGIF Kermit PumpkinOr you can always go with your favorite Muppet

TGIF Pumpkins Star WarsOr perhaps something more on the “Dark Side” for you? Find Instructions and Star Wars Patterns here

Check out more Disney pumpkin templates here, and if you want, you can also buy books of these and similar Disney/Star Wars patterns at Target, or Wal-Mart

TGIF!
