Craft Therapy: Disney Style

Is it ironic that I make Disney things while watching the Disney channel to get my mind off of Disneyland? Maybe...maybe not. Even though just the first millisecond of a Disney vacation commercial sets off a crying spree for hours, it still makes me feel good to think about Disneyland. It's my happy place - always has been and always will be. Mickey Mouse is my worry stone, and while it hurts to think about anything having to with the parks or products, Disney is still ultimately always going to make me happy.

So today when I woke up and saw on Facebook that a bunch of my new Disney friends I met in my Traditions class had started their jobs today, I needed something to make me happy IMMEDIATELY. I wanted some craft therapy but since our place is completely packed up, I don't have anything out to make stuff. So that meant I needed something easy and that required minimal supplies, time and money. 

Ta-da!!! Mickey Shoes!

I need to clean them up a little bit, but it was only 5 bucks for the shoes and the paints and Mickey buttons I had on hand. Cute results for such a quick and fun project! 

(Also, one more resounding, huge thank you to all the words of encouragement and support! I cannot believe how many wonderful people I have in my life! Thank you so much!!! <3 )
