I'm confused what you mean by the "white background"??? You can see the image I want to post
Haunted Mansion DISsign

I would like to do the top one and put it on a black shirt...what would be your best recommendation Wendy!!! Feel free to PM this poor soul!!!!
Jen... for that design... which is great.... I would use the regular white transfer paper made for dark colors.... because the design itself is dark you will want a white border around it. Once you print out your design you will want to trim it ... because when you print it .... it will be 8 1/2 by 11... so I would trim about 1/2 inch all the way around the oval... that will give you a good contrast between the dark of the shirt and the dark of the design.... does that make sense.....??????

In a nutshell what I said was....Today was perfect

Weather fab again at 82 degrees...went to MK at rope drop and rode everything first thing (first to ride dumbo )

got haircuts for the girls and hubby (hubby even got green gel and pixie dust too) I'll post pics at a later time.

Crowds were great in the morning, then picked up later in the day.

It was a magical day,my eyes misted a few times, esp at rope drop and waiting in line to get into MK when my 2 year old was screaming singing "i know you I walked with you once upon a dream"...it was really something else

We plan to get to MGM at rope drop tomorrow too to help with the crowds...the cast members say that crowds are way up from what was anticipated..Oh well..we are enjoying ourselves.

yes...Wendy, my husband says I can rent him out.

Sweet dreams everyone.
So happy for you having a great day - I'm jealous!

My mom is joining us on our trip and then my sister is also going to m. eet up with us on the 18th. I have 2 dd's 15 months and 3 at the end of January.

We are all packed and already on our way, well DD1 and I are. Dh and DD2 are meeting us in Vancouver on Sunday., then we fly from Seattle to Orlando.

I have managed to get most of the character dinning that we wanted and we will be spending 10 days in the parks.

So far we will be doing MK for 4 days, AK 1 day, Hollywood 2 days, Epcot 1 day. Any suggestions on what parks to do again?


This is our 3rd trip to WDW MK in the last 2 years, but we haven't done any of the other parks because of length of stays and our kids ages.
I agree that you might want to do another Animal Kingdom day - it's a pretty big park, and sometimes you can't see the shows and all the animals in one day - especially when they have short hours in the winter. I wish I could be there that many days too!

ME TOO!! Not too much longer for us though Wendy! I also appreciate your input on the t-shirts. I have plain and dark transfer paper and so far I've printed off two on the plain. They have white in the background of the picture, so I figure I'm putting it on white or pale pink shirts, it should look okay. So far we've only messed up on two pages! I hate to screw up and waste paper that costs over a dollar a page! Will try to do more tonight! Cross your fingers for me!

I found clear background ones at Target, I think they are Avery Brand. I used them on light blue T-shirts and they looked great. I think if you want a lot of color, you should use the white background ones, but if you're going to use lines and not fill it all in with color, then the clear ones are best.

I'll be working on mine this weekend - I'll post some photos next week!

YES!! This makes perfect sense and I thank you so much for your time!!! I'm going to be making my shirt on Saturday. This gives me 3 homemade shirts and then a couple I bought which should be plenty for me LOL!!!!! I'm going to have other things to wear also while I'm there and I'll be shopping LOL!!!!!!!

The same person who designed that also made me a really cute valentine design and she is making me a LGMH so I will be able to make some cute designs with that LOL!!!

Lots of rest! I'm sure that will be easy!
Have you tried zinc or zicam? They say it shortens the length of a cold - but I don't know if you have to start taking it at the beginning. Sometimes those dang colds just linger!! Maybe a nice warm climate will help!
Oh, I know what you need...

Oh man, good luck!! Last year I had a cold before we left, and I brought every medicine known to man. We get there, and it's cool and rainy. Great. So I load up on the meds, and we only had one day at the park, so I'm going no matter how I feel. The next day we went to Miami and the day after got on the cruise. Cold was gone. Hopefully it will go quickly!

Up your water intake...make sure you are getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep (best thing for any illness is rest)...start taking lysine or zinc or both!! Lysine is an amino acid that helps to boost your immune system and helps with skin health (nice little perk there). I hope these ideas help!

Lysine is also great for canker sores!

Does anyone know what is the active ingredient in Airborne? I've been thinking about trying it before the trip. Anybody use it before?

Thought it was fun!!!
Did you hear they are making a Dewey movie?? I saw a report on CBS Sunday Morning about it, and it was really a beautiful real-life story. I think it will be a wonderful, inspiring and really sweet movie

Don't worry about leaving on your flight on Friday. They'll have the roads cleared by then - promise!!

One time we had to dig a path through foot high snow to get to our van to drive to Disney World - we did it and by the time we hit the main roads, everything was great. I'm sure the airport will be fine for you.

I KNOW!!! It doesn't "help" that my mom, dad, and brother are also coming down for the weekend. I average an email from each of them a day about "Disney planning." Today, my brother asked for an update on eating plans!

Oh good luck and feel better soon! In February 2007, I went when sick and I mostly felt bad for my best friend who had to listen to me be sick! (And I did actually take off the day before work, but it was very apparent I was sick PLUS crazy nasty boss was crazy about Disney, so she understood without being nasty)

Ah, this is SE Michigan, where every snowstorm is treated just like the first! Plowing? Salting? Sanding? What is this crazy thing you speak of! In 2005, we drove on untreated roads to the airport. It's getting to the airport that's most difficult. The airport does a better job of maintaining planes/runways than this part of the state does!

But we'll be fine, once we get there. I have a LOT of time built in to getting us to the airport. And it's NWA's last flight for the night, so they need that plane in Orlando. We'll get there when we get there! (plus, no one's talking any accumulations of snow, so we'll definitely be okay. I am, however, a big old worrier by nature!)

My parents signed up for the chEAR squad for the marathon on Sunday. They'll have finish line grandstand seats, private bathrooms, and hot beverages. I was too cheap, so I shall be roadside with group port-a-potties and whatever I take with me for food and drink! But it'll be a blast!
