Hey everyone today I am going to share with you something cool that I found online while surfing. I found these decals for Apple products such as Macbook Pro, iPads and so on. They are designed to compliment and make the Apple logo on your product stand out. I found a whole bunch HERE!
Happy December everyone! Are you excited? Stressed? I hope your not stressed but enjoying the beginning of the month!
I love christmas, in fact I put my tree up literally right after Thanksgiving. Last year I made a video with my christmas tree and again I made one this year inspired by Cinderella’s Castle Lights. If you wanna see last years click HERE. This years is right below! I hope you enjoy!
If you’re a Disney World fan, then I have a fun project that is easy and affordable – DIY Disney World Map Coasters. I was originally going to make map coasters with maps from a World Atlas. You may recall I used a map from an old World Atlas for aPersonalized Map Art project.
I’ve seen several do-it-yourself map coasters all around the internet. I wanted to change it up…be different…have some fun with it. Well, we are currently planning our next Disney vacation which is what inspired me to use Disney World Maps. I was excited to do another Disney-themed project. (My last one was a Disney Vacation Countdown.)
These coasters are so much fun! My kiddos were all smiles when I first showed them the coasters. They love putting their drinks on them and talking about the attractions on the maps.
The materials I used for this project were old coasters, Mod Podge, polyurethane sealant, foam brush, pencil, scissors and printed maps of the Disney World parks. If you don’t have any old coasters, I’ve seen others use tile.

I first printed maps of Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. I also printed a Disney World map. You could use the maps you get at the parks. You could also print your own maps from the Disney World site. I printed mine fromwdwinfo.com.
I put the coaster on top of the map and positioned it to the part of the map I wanted on the coaster. I traced around the coaster using a pencil. I then cut out what I traced. I recommend cutting slightly smaller than what you traced. And, line up the cut out map on your coaster to see if you need to trim off any excess. I needed to do this.
I then applied Mod Podge on the back of the cut out map and also on the top of the coaster.
I placed the paper onto the coaster carefully and smoothed it out. I waited 15 minutes for it to dry.
I applied a thin coat of Mod Podge on the top of the paper and waited 15 minutes for it to dry. I then put another coat of Mod Podge.
I also applied three (3) coats of polyurethane sealant to make it more waterproof. I recommend this. I read somewhere Mod Podge alone isn’t enough to seal your coaster especially from wet glasses. Also Note: If you do not use a polyurethane sealant, then do NOT put anything hot on the coasters for a month. Mod Podge takes about one month to fully cure. If you do use a polyurethane sealant, then you could wait 1-7 days as directed on the sealant.
Take another look at the Disney World Map Coasters. Aren’t they fun?! Have you made any fun coasters?

Like most people I love the Disney Parks’ shirts. I think they are so creative and some of them make me laugh every time I see them. coming this fall are a bunch of new designs for WDW and DL. Take a look below…What do you think?
As some of you may know, Disney kicked off the “Limited Time Magic” announcement in Times Square in New York City. This is a celebration of 52 weeks with new and exciting fun to be found all year long in the Disney Parks.
So, what can you expect with “Limited Time Magic” at Disney Parks when it begins in January? Here’s an idea:
- True Love: Celebrate romance and enchantment throughout Valentine’s Week with special moments and entertainment geared to lovebirds. Disney Princes join their Princesses to meet park guests in special settings, prix fixe menus turn up at select restaurants and Valentine’s collectibles will be offered for the week.
- Independence Week: It’s red, white and blue as Disney Parks salutes America with a 4th of July Fireworks Party — for an entire week, with patriotic lighting bathing the Disney castles on both coasts. Mickey Mouse appears in his patriotic finest and guests will find special USA shirts, Ear Hats and other limited-edition souvenirs.
- Long Lost Friends Week: Lesser-known Disney characters will move from the shadows to the spotlight meet-and-greets on both coasts. Photo opps with characters that could include Flik, Clarabelle Cow, Remy, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum will surprise and delight guests. And Disney guests even have the chance to vote online for which characters they want to see.
- Pirate Week: Why talk like a pirate one day when you could celebrate these scalawags all week long? The adventures of Jack Sparrow come to life like never before during a bicoastal buccaneer bash in which Disneyland and Walt Disney World become pirate-palooza: pirate bands, pirate meet-and-greets and more.
- Dapper Dans Sing Boy Bands: The Dapper Dans, the iconic quartet from Main Street, U.S.A., will add a special finale to their show, claiming the title of the “Original Boy Band” and delivering a medley of hits from One Direction, *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys.
- Unleash the Villains: Friday the 13th in September 2013 is a special day, so Disneyland park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are staying open until the 13th hour (1 a.m.). Maleficent, Captain Hook, Jafar and other Disney Villains host a dance party, complete with limited-edition collectibles and other nighttime mischief.
- Golden Horseshoe Revue: The fabled Frontierland show returns to Disneyland park for one month only, bringing back the corny jokes and enduring songs that were often enjoyed by Walt Disney himself.
