Magical Mickey Mail

We've gotten a lot of magical Mickey mail over the past two weeks!  I don't know about you, but I love to receive Disney mail!  It brings a little bit of the magic home!

During March Madness, Disney ran a "March Magic" competition pitting favorite Disney Rides and attractions against each other.  (You can read more about that here.)  This year, they also made t-shirts for each "team".  Since you can't buy merchandise for a lot of these rides, we were all over this.  His parents bought each family member his or her favorite ride.  Eliot and I also got a few of our favorites knowing we might not be able to find merchandise for them again.  The shirts were printed to order, and they just arrived earlier this week!  Eliot and I both got Main Street Electricity, World of Color Spectrum, and the Fantasmic Dragons.  Eliot also grabbed the Briar Patch Splash design.  I, on the other hand, opted for one of my favorites- the Philharmagic Maestros!

One of the perks of working really hard with my Happily Ever Hatter business is that I'm able to occasionally treat myself to handmade creations from other Etsy shops.  I love supporting other sellers.  On Tuesday, I received the bows I'd bought from Mad Hatter Bows.  I fell in love with her Rapunzel and Anna Coronation bows.  The details are fantastic.  They're really cute and I can't wait to wear them!

Last week, I received my order from MigotoChou.  I've been admiring Amanda's monorail bracelet for a long time.  She makes the cutest beaded jewelry!  She had a beautiful rainbow Mickey Balloon necklace that was calling my name.  I also asked Amanda to create a custom order for a Mickey balloon purse charm.  It was like Christmas when the package arrived!  I love all of my new accessories!  The Mickey Balloon necklace is absolutely stunning.  Pictures don't do it justice.

Yesterday, Eliot was home to receive a package that had to be signed for.  I can't tell you what it is just yet, but it has to do with the joint business idea we're working on!  I'm happy to report that we're ahead of the time schedule we were anticipating!  (Yay!!!) Therefore, I'll be able to share a lot more soon!  Here's one more hint!

Finally, I've saved the best for last!  On Wednesday, I received a package I wasn't expecting.  Upon further investigation, I discovered it was from a lady named Joan who is a My Disney Life blog follower!  I've never met Joan, but she comments on my blog posts occasionally.  She got our mailing address when she ordered from Eliot's Snowblade Creations shop.  Joan sent me a beautiful card telling me how much she loves to read my blog and how it brings her joy.  It's an amazing feeling to know my blog brings joy to others.  She also sent me a Disney recipe for the Liberty Tree Tavern Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake.  (I'll have to try it out this summer!  It looks really good!)

But that wasn't it.  I removed the tissue paper to find one more treasure inside of the box.  Before I finished opening it my eyes started to water.  Joan sent me this stunning castle sign with one of my all time favorite Walt Disney quotes.  (She'd never know, but I've been admiring the Hallmark Disney signs for a while now!)  I'm incredibly touched by her kindness.  Her gift left me speechless with happy tears.  Thank you so much for your generous gift Joan.  I sincerely appreciate it and I'll treasure it always.  I'm planning to put it on my desk with a few of my other special Disney keepsakes.   It will always bring a smile to my face whenever I look at it.  I'm so grateful for how Disney brings people together.  Further proof that Disney magic is real. °o°
