Our Newest Items Include Planners for your Walt Disney World Vacations!

Are you ready to have a truly Magical Walt Disney World Vacation? Great! We are here to help you.
 Ultimate Walt Disney World Vacation Planner Set by 4girlsdesigns

As any Disney World Vacation Veteran will tell you, it is all in the planning. The degree to which you research and make at least basic plans is directly related to the amount of fun you can have while you are there.  My family moved to central Florida so we could be near the place "Where Dreams Come True".  After having lived here and written hundreds of articles for other blogs concerning Disney, we are now launching our Ultimate Walt Disney World Vacation Planner along with various smaller sets for each Theme Park as well as deciding on where to stay while you are here. We just added a set for the 2016 Epcot International Flower & Garden Show that will help you if you are coming in the next couple of months. We keep up to date on what is going on in the World by visiting the parks every week and watching for news that will impact guests in the future.

The planning sheets are easy to use and you will in the end only need to take one sheet of paper with you each day, that can be folded and stuck in a pocket. We wanted this to be a fun way of educating you on choices you should make prior to making a reservation all the way through the layout of each day when you arrive. The sheets have some color and images thrown in to make them "prettier" but not use all the ink in your printer! You will recieve the PDF file that includes all of the Planning sets you want and then you print them out and get started planning the best vacation for you and your family. There are tips from us along the way to help you!

Custom Hand Embroidered Pet Portraits Using Thread Painting Techniques

NOTE: Our Hand Embroidered Art has taken off and demanded its own shop so please find these wonderful items at Harrison Custom Gifts, also on Etsy and their blog can be found HERE.

I am still doing hand embroidered wedding items but also enjoy doing custom hand embroidered pet portraits. Our pets are so much a part of our lives and I so enjoy making a special image of them for you to treasure through the years. It takes many hours of work to make these pet portraits, one thread at a time, all made completely by hand.I use a technique known as "thread painting" which uses one thread at a time to layer on the colors of the embroidery floss to create a beautiful portrait. I am happy to combine multiple pets on one hoop if you like. I would suggest the larger hoop for more than one pet.

I use 4", 5" or 6" bamboo embroidery hoops with the finest DMC cotton floss to make these images. I will need at least one detailed photo with good light of your pet. The more detailed the photo, the more detailed I can make your portrait.

I would love to know any details you want to share about your pet to help me understand his/her personality. Please share the name you would like added to the portrait or any custom details you would like to have included. Please contact me with these custom details prior to purchasing the listing. If you have a pet that has gone on before you to Heaven, I can make you a portrait from your photographs to memorialize your sweet pet.

Thank you for visiting 4girlsdesigns blog today. Please take a moment to visit the shop on Etsy today!

Happy 2016! Hand Embroidered Wedding Gifts

HAPPY 2016! 

Are you looking for custom hand embroidered wedding handkerchiefs, tie patches, wedding dress labels or a custom hand embroidered pet portrait? Please come to 4girlsdesigns for all of those!!

Wow, 2015 was a whirlwind for my family. After moving to Florida one of my daughters met the man of her dreams, they were together a year and became engaged and the wedding date was chosen for early January 2016. They desired to have a Hobbit-themed wedding which meant handmade items were needed! It was so much fun, everyone had a wonderful time in Hobbiton. 

I have included some of the embroidered wedding items in my shop that are available for any style of wedding. I hope that you find what you are looking for and if not please send me a conversation through my Etsy shop, with the details of you want your custom embroidered items to look like. I can embroidered pillows using wedding or engagement photos. 

Brides: An important thing to remember when your wedding day is approaching: Don't wait until the last two weeks to try and choose gifts for your parents who have put so much into making your Wedding Day special. Order your special message to them to be carefully hand embroidered on a handkerchief or tie patch to let them know how special they are to you. Don't forget the Groom, his parents, Grandparents...include these in your plan from the beginning so you can get exactly what you want.
