Have you ever wandered through Disney World and had to search for a trash can? It's like your eyes just glide over them. Same thing if you are wandering over to the castle, and the fence is there. You just...don't really notice it. It blends in.
Well, it turns out that that green, is actually a special color...a no see um color! Gray and green!
Here's a fantastic article about these colors! Tell me...do you find it as fascinating as I do?
I admit, I struggled with what color I wanted to paint out new picnic bench and I ended up going with...go away green. I can't wait to see how looks once our grass turns green.
That's my favorite quote. My 8 year old also uses it quite often.
We've a special surprise for you readers today, too. Danielle Jaycox is a gifted graphic artist and writer, who, like those of us here, has a soft spot for all things Disney.
As a special gift, she's giving Disney Magic Mommy Readers a bunch of TOTALLY FREE Wallpapers and Live Wallpapers!
Danielle can make wallpapers out of anything. Family photos, ideas stuck on your head, whatever you are imagining, she can probably create it.
I have done graphic design and writing for almost 14 years. I take pride in helping people make their vision come true, whether it is for something as simple as an invitation or complex as a website for their business. I make wallpapers mostly for fun.

I do any kind of wallpapers, including taking family pictures and editing them for mobile platforms.

If you are mourning the loss of the Halloween Party, we have a small DIY for you. No, it's not quite as fun as enjoying the real thing, but if you have kiddos or someone else who is heartbroken about not attending, this might be just the ticket!
Right now, Target has these awesome small treat bags in their dollar spot. There's a cute pumpkin, an awesome teal allergy friendly bag and some others. I only bought these two. They are only $1 and will go fast, which is why I'm sharing this now!
Buy a few bags, fill them with your favorite treats, and either keep for yourself, or boo your neighbors and coworkers! These are the perfect size to hold small toys or plush as well with sturdy little handles!
I want to see what you've put in yours!

Recently, my dad showed me his old, old Mickey Mouse that his Grandmother had gotten him when Disneyland opened. It was well worn and much loved you could tell, just by looking at it. The paint was off of his nose, his fur was thin in spots but it was Mickey!
There's something special about a treasured childhood toy that brings back memories, no matter how long ago. I have a few of those myself. Recently, I was invited to write out one of those memories for a new blog called Toys for Memories. I didn't choose a Disney toy, but another old favorite.
