Better safe than sorry!!!!  I am sure michaels is going to wonder why they had a run on sewing kits HAHA

 

I will not be doing an iron on transfer, originally I wanted to but I didn't like the shiny outline it leaves and then I thought I want my guests to be able to reuse them so we are just doing a nice bag tag.  It says "Bienvenidos" and it simple but I think it does the trick!



 


Glad to hear you got a few more!!!!! I am sure I will have 5 extras so if you don't find them somewhere else I'll be able to help you out!!!!



 

SKU 4 00100 84751 0

Travel Sewing Kit 20pc

 

(saw you ended up tracking them down but for any other brides who are calling this may make it easier!)
 



 

HAHAHA I am glad to hear it!!!!!! How many do you need all together?

Back from another trip to the wedding planning store aka. Dollarama  No Tylenol or Advil 10 cts (they sold on really quickly!) but I did come across 2 new brand name items that I had to share with you all!

 

My absolute FAVOURITE blistex in the entire world is the raspberry lemonade one.  If you havent tried it DO because it is amazing and like a vacation on your lips! It is also SPF 15.  Well believe it or not I stumbled upon it tonight at Dollarama and for only $1!!!!!! They had about 4 other types of blistex as well most for $1.25+ so I was really excited!!!!!

Another great find was Poly to go!!!!! FOr only $2 this was a great find as I am pretty sure it has cost me $5+ in the past at the drug store!  Another brand name find at Dollarama, gotta love it!!!!!! I only picked up 3, one for FI and I, one for my mom and dad and one for my future in laws.  If we had the money I would do them for everyone but I just don't have it in the budget and can use the $2 somewhere else.  I may pick up a couple more to throw in our "master first aid kit" that one guest (likely my mom) will have and everyone will be able to use, it will be stocked with lots of extra first aid items not included in the mini kits for major injuries etc.

Remember to ALWAYS check the expiry dates - I always get carried away with my excitement about my finds and sometimes forget!!!!

 

My last share of today is probably not as exciting for some but I mentioned in my own OOT thread and possibly here before that we would be including test tubes of dish soap in each of our guests Bubba Mugs in their bags so that they can wash them before using them.  Well before I had a chance to order the test tubes online I found these mini craft containers that were perfect for a little dish soap so I just went ahead and bought them, save on shipping and I love immediate gratification (no patience for online shopping lol) 8 for $1

I accidentally bought the larger size the first time, and then when I went back to get these ones I bought 2 more packs of large (they were mixed in on the rack) so I have a whole bunch of the larger ones.  I think I may include some sensitive laundry detergent or delicate detergent (like woolite) in each of the larger ones that people can use to wash their bathing suits.... what do you guys think of that?  Is it too weird or a good addition?  I have them so I thought I may as well use them but I also don't want to take my OOTS from GREAT to weird with one little thing lol

 

That's all for now :)

Me again... what a surprise! SO I picked up so extra safety pins tonight as the michaels sewing kits only come with one and I think that would likely be the MOST used item, do you think they should be added in the survival kit or the first aid kit?  I'd love to add them to the sewing kit but everything kits just so in it and they wont close properly..... thoughts?

I love the new finds!!! I don't think it would be weird to add laundry detergent, it's something I have never thought of but it would be nice to wash swim suits or if you spill something on a shirt that you would like to wear again. Plus it's not that expensive to add and you already have the containers.

 

I would add them to the first aid kit it's too bad it doesn't fit in the sewing kit.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
