Valentines Inspired Mickey Mouse Sun Catcher

I’m always looking for new things or crafts for us to do at home. Adding in Disney just peaks my girls interest so much more, and keeps her engaged. What can I say we are definitely a Disney family. 

These sun catchers are something fun for the kids to do. They can hang on the window to catch the beautiful rays of sun in a fun way. If you have older kids they can do most the work, with younger ones like my toddler you will need to do most the work. 

Here is what you need: 

A fun paper plate- these were themed to Valentines Day but you could use anything

Big Pieces of Glitter or Confetti 

Clear Contact Paper 

Scissors 

Mickey Cookie Cutter (you can also just use a cut out) 

Pen or Marker 

Ribbon (optional) 

To start flip your plate over to trace your Mickey head onto the paper plate. 

Poke your scissors through to cut out the Mickey shape. The plates I used were super thick and harder to cut. I might recommend using something a little less thick. 

Cut 2 pieces of contact paper to fit the middle of plate. 

Add contact paper to back side of the plate then flip over and add the glitter or confetti. Once that’s added top with the other piece of contact paper, and make sure to smooth it down really well. 

I decided to add some ribbon but you don’t have too. To add it I just poked a hole with my scissors and strung it through. 

Now you have a fun sun catcher you can make with supplies you probably already have at home. If we could get some Sunshine here so we can use ours that would be great! Make sure to show me all your creations. 

My Rocks Box Review

I’ve seen Rocks Box floating around for so long, and I’ve debated and debated it. Part of taking care of me more this year, was also about putting myself together more. I can be really bad about as a Stay at Home Mom it but I feel so much better when I do. 

Jewelry can fix up the most simple of outfits, even if it’s jeans and a T-shirt. I love jewelry, so when a friend had a code for free month with a credit I figured why not give it a go. I honestly love Subscription boxes and they make life a little easier. 

As far as the process goes, you fill out a style profile very similar to Stitch Fix.  You can note your favorite designers, color preferences etc.. After I signed up and had set up to receive my first box Rocks Box emailed me to go and fill out my “Wish List”  and they would give me an additional $5 credit. Doing this also gives your stylist an idea of pieces you really love. They may even grant those wishes when you receive  your box. 

The monthly cost after the first month is $21 but that credit is good until the end of the month towards anything you purchase. You can keep the pieces as long as you want, just pay the monthly fee. They send you a prepaid label to send back what you don’t want at any time. If you choose to keep everything you get a $10 credit. 

An email was sent a few days before my box shipped showing what was inside of it. I also had the option to swap anything out that I may not have liked. I was happy with what they had picked out and two of the items were actually on my “Wish” list.  

Inside the box was a description of each piece, as well as the prices listed.When your ready to mail it back you just go online and rate what you received and check out. Then you just place any returns back in the envelope, place the return shipping label on there

Here is what was in my first box: 

Kendra Scott Irene Earrings in Gold Iridescent 

I love these earrings so much! These are a keeper for sure. They also give me all the Tangled vibes too, but they are perfect and a good versatile piece to go with just about anything.

Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace in Magenta 

I’m a huge Kendra Scott fan, and I’ve been eyeing one of these necklaces for far too long. While I love this necklace I’m not going to be keeping it. For the price I decided I needed something that would go with a little more. I have some other colors on my wish list so if I decide to continue the box for a little while hopefully I’ll get one again. 

Sophie Harper Pave X Ring in Gold 

I loved this ring. I’ve wanted something like this for a while. Sadly this ring was a little to small for my middle finger where I wanted to wear it so I’ll be sending it back. 

While this isn’t something I will do all the time it is a fun way to get a few new pieces added to your wardrobe. I’m at a place now where I would rather have some nicer pieces of jewelry than a bunch of cheap ones. I definitely recommend giving it a try if your looking for a few new pieces, or to do a little something for yourself. Men this would also make a great gift for the ladies in your life!

Valentines Gift Guide for the Disney Lover in Your Life

*This post may contain affiliate links. That means I may receive a small commission if you purchase something off my link at no extra charge to you.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Have you got something for that special someone in your life? 

Today I’m rounding up some of my favorite things you can still snag for the Disney lover in your life. Not all of them will arrive in time for the day, but you can always do a super cute I owe you! 

I’ll start with some of my favorite easy to add to your everyday pieces. My go to for this is Lillian and Co. I just love their quote bracelets, and the quality is amazing! They come in Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver and look great mixed together.

I also love their watches! I was gifted their Kingswell Dreamer Watch in Rose Gold for Christmas and it’s probably my favorite watch ever. The stainless steel mesh band makes it’s super comfortable, and it has a great vintage Hollywood vibe with a modern day feel. It’s perfect for casual days and easily dressed up as well. 

For a super sweet everyday necklace head over the Make It Minnie. Her 2nd star to the right necklace is the perfect everyday piece. They are currently back in stock right now, she keeps selling out of them and I always miss them. I can’t wait to get my own. I’ve hinted at my husband about this one, so I’m hoping he is going to make it happen.  I have also seen a preview of some things to come to her shop and they are so cute!

I’ve fallen in love recently with A Girl and the Castle Small Shop which is owned by Ashley from @danggooddisney. She has a variety of cute items in her shop, and each month donates a portion of her profits to a good cause. Currently she is taking that money to give to others to go on a trip to Haiti in August. She has raised money for her part of the trip and now is giving that money back to others. This girl has a heart of gold, so go support her shop! 

One of my favorite items right now is her new shirt, It’s Important to Remember We all have Magic Inside of Us. I just snagged this shirt in the heathered navy color and can’t wait to get it in. These shirts won’t arrive in time for Valentines Day but you should still get one and give an I Owe You!

I’ve recently discovered Evelyn Henson and I’m in love with her work. This one isn’t just Disney and if you have someone who loves art work she has some great gift options. I love her Orlando print we lived there for 4 years and it still is home to me. She has many other cities available as well as her customizable travel print which I’m so in LOVE with. I’m ordering the prints from each place we have lived little by little and I’ve started with the Orlando one and can’t wait to receive it. I love having special artwork like this in my home. If you sign up for her emails you can get a 15% off your first order code as well!

If you have a Disney Pin collector in your life the small shop pins are the way to go. Magical Monograms has the perfect Mermaid heart pin. Lindsayland Pins has also become a new favorite of mine. She has the perfect Dole Whip pin which is currently unavailable , and a Violet Lemonade Pin perfect for Flower and Garden Festival. 

 

Ears are from Pixie Made Ears, I just added the pin

Speaking of Ears, you can never go wrong with the gift of ears for any Disney Lover. I absolutely love Pixie Made Ears, they are some of my favorite ears. She happens to be restocking her shop tonight. Her Ears are also super affordable!

You can also never go wrong with a pin from one of my favorite shops ever Happily Ever Tees. Their Coffee with the Mouse Pin is perfect for the coffee lover in your life, and you can never go wrong with a Happily Ever Tees shirt either. 

Another great little gift for the coffee lover in your life is a coffee cozy, or mug. I love the knit cozies from House of Mouse Hand Made. The Castle one pictured above is one of my favorites that I own. My absolute favorite coffee Mugs right now are my Shellie May mug and the Mickey Memories Mickey Pants Mug for January. You can find both of them on Shop Disney.

I’ll give a little love to my own small shop, before I jump completely out of the small shop thing. Cups, Mugs, Coffee Cozies  are always a great idea. If you have a Rosè lover in your life my Rosè is better than people wine glass inspired by the movie Frozen. I’ve got many other fun items in my shop perfect for the Disney lover in your life. You can shop my store right here.

Disney Style has taken on a whole new world in the last year or two. I love how it’s evolved and how you can add the perfect touches of Disney to your regular everyday outfits. A Danielle Nicole Bag is the perfect gift. I just love these bags, and how fun they are and so will the Disney Lover in your life. You can shop them here on Shop Disney. I snagged this Snow white Cosmetic bag a few weeks ago on Sale and they had an extra 25% off,  it is still on sale online. 

 

Box Lunch Gifts has some great items you can get for the Disney lover in your life. The best thing about Box Lunch is for every $10 you spend they donate a meal through Feeding America. 

 

 

 

They have some super cute bath bombs, and you can never go wrong with a bath bomb as part of a gift. Actually a cup or mug, with a bath bomb is great idea for a small gift if your on a budget especially.

Box Lunch also carries a different variety of Danielle Nicole Bags, Hats, Shirts, Pop Funko and other Disney apparel. So Gift Some and Give Back.

I have to share these Kendra Scott Earrings that I’m currently obsessed with. These give me the Tangled Vibes but honestly I just love them and they go with so much. The place I could find these Irene Studs Earrings was through Rocks Box. I received these in my first one ( review coming soon) and I looked online to share but they are sold out everywhere. If you would like to try and snag these on Rocks Box use code MEGANABFF31 and get your first month free. It can be cancelled at any time and you have no obligation to buy anything.

 

It is still winter, and whether your throwing something together for your child, girlfriend or loved one you can never go wrong with a cute little Lip Smacker Tsum Tsum chapstick. These can be purchased at Target and Walgreens, or on the Lip Smacker website. They are so cute and fun, and my 2 year old is obsessed with them.

What are you doing for the Disney Lover in your Life this Valentines Day?
