I have never requested but there are some that have blanks that you can edit. What kind of invites are you looking for? I can see whats available and try to customize them for you.

Emteach, I wish I could help you but I find the whole thing confusing as well. I get worried about requesting the wrong way or doing something offensive or against the rules and I give up before I ask

Question for everyone..
Are you bringing anything to read on vacation? I want something really good for the plane, and maybe for a rainy afternoon in our cabin. I just haven't heard of anything lately that really grabbed my interest.
I think the last books I read and loved were The Game of Thrones books, and I read The Birth House on vacation in the Fall.
I used to read all the time but I don't seem to be able to sit still long enough these days. Hoping to find something good for vacation

I have James Patterson's new book, I, Michael Bennett already downloaded to my tablet. I am resisting reading it until the trip but it's so tempting!

As Pigletto said I am worried I will ask the wrong way as well (although, I really dont know what even to ask) and offend and they will not be impressed.

Senaca Wolf, I am looking for an invite to BBB for my sister Amber and brother Jett (who is getting the knight package). I am also looking for an invites for our character dinners/ lunch; Akershus, 1900 Park Fare, Crystal Palace and Hollywood and Vine Playhouse Disney (for Jett). I am hoping that the characters may be able to sign them and we can put in our scrapbook (the only crafty thing I am remotely good at lol )

Any help I could get would be SOOO very appreciated!

I would ask Shadowryter. She isn't picky about how you ask for it. And you can browse through her photobucket and see all of her invites she's created. A couple other good ones are Absolut_Mandy or MarneMouse.

My best suggestion is to ask on a specific thread. If you just ask in the main forum, it's rare for someone to volunteer for it!

Hmm, someone not too picky. I like the sound of that. Looked on the other 2 and was so confused on what to ask and where and whether it was appropriate to ask.

I second Shadowryter. I have used her designs before and come out great. She does get a lot of requests so make sure you let her know when you are leaving and she will get it completed for you.

People say this to us too, but it is definitley the same temp, if not hotter at home. I also don't mind heat- I will sit on the beach in any temp!

I am bringing the latest Kingdom Keepers book! Planning on reading by the pool when the boys swim! I'll have to look through my kindle and see if I have anything to recommend. I need to finish Game of Thrones Book 2 so I can catch up on the TV show!

Oh no! I'd do it soon so you can be recovered before you go. Would hate to have an attack while you're there! Hope it works out for you!

Oh no!!! My husband went through the same thing exactly two years ago. Luckily, recovery was super quick. Will be thinking of you- hope you are feeling better in no time!!! I have an idea of how painful that is

I'm home now, after 4 hours and a lot of medicine and fluid. They did an informal ultrasound and said that I don't have visible gallstones, but it is inflammed. I will schedule a more in depth ultra sound on Monday. They said depending on what they find then, but I may be able to hold off until after Disney. I will just be eating less Disney burgers and more Disney salads . Thank you everyone for the well wishes. You guys are the greatest!

Even though I *love* to read, I will probably not bringing a reading book (assuming I won't get time to sit long enough to enjoy it properly).

That said, I will definitely be bringing along some word search and crossword books. I can spend a few minutes or a few hours on them that way. I am a puzzle junkie. I'm weird like that .
