Welcome to my refuge :)

Disney has become a daily retreat for me. We may only spend 10 days there a year (more if I'm truly blessed), but I have found that making Mickey a part of my daily life makes me feel much better. So I'm running with it! Luckily I have a patient husband and a laptop computer that allows me to do endless searching and planning. This blog is developing out of that. You are welcome to come along for the ride and offer your advice. I don't claim to be an expert, just a lover of the experience!

Right now whenever a post says "Update" that means it is a 2011 trip update and if you click on the tab with that date on it you can read that update.

Our Adventure at the Fabric Store

Yesterday I saw this amazing fabric online and I had to have it.

BUT... It's no longer available online. So after bribing my husband with breakfast, I got him to drive me to the nearest Joanne's, the only store that carries it.

We looked around at a few things. There were a ton of people there. Finally we muscled our way over to the fabric. I was amazed that I actually found some of the fabric. I though maybe no one had it anymore. I had to get it cut then. Uhhh...

Remember I said there were a lot of people. I pushed through and got a number. I looked at it. I had number 08. They were working on number 82. It was going to be forever. And it was.

Jim didn't complain once.In fact when I told him I thought I'd only get a yard, he told me to take what was left on the bolt. It ended up being just over 4 yards. Good thing it was 40% off! I even snuck in a yard on Disney Halloween fabric that was 60% off.

I have big plans for my purchase. A mantel cover. A tree skirt. Maybe some cute apparel.

I'm trying to keep myself busy until I can do some trip planning and until surgery. I think I almost have enough projects now!
