Disney-fied My Gypsy

I got my Gypsy from HSN when they offered the bundle, so I have a very nice bag for her, but it's too bulky for me to take everywhere, so I've been on the lookout for something small but still with a handle.  I had just about given up on finding exactly what I wanted when I saw posts over on the Cricut message boards about the Vera Bradley clutch made to fit the Gypsy.  Yep, that was what I was gonna get. Then I went to Disney World last week...

On our first day there, I wandered into the hotel gift shop and saw a cute little purse that looked like it would perfectly hold the Gypsy along with the power and USB cords.  I mustered up all the will power I had not to buy it until I could bring my Gypsy with me to check the fit.  After all, she was with me on my trip, and they had the purse in the hotel gift shop.  I had 6 more days to buy it. 

The next day, I found a little Mickey Mouse charm.  I'm sure they are meant for cell phones, but it is perfect for my Gypsy stylus!  Isn't he adorable?!?!
All week, I saw that little purse at gifts shops all over the Disney parks, and all week I resisted buying it.  On my last day there, I still had not brought Gypsy down to try out the purse.  I could go upstairs and get her, but my feet had blisters, my back was aching, and it was late on our last night there, so I had packing to do.  "What the heck," I told myself, "I can use it for something. A girl can never have too many cute little purses, and I do LOVE Mickey!"  So, I bought it and ran upstairs, blisters and all, to see if it fit.  It does, and I love it!  I think Gypsy - and my new Mickey charm - will be very happy living in it!  I might still have to get the Vera Bradley clutch, too. You know...just as a backup.

Oh, I'm so jealous! I love Disney too and was just down there a couple of weeks ago, but didn't think to look for a cute bag for my Gypsy. I just found your blog and will definately have to become a follower.

I love this idea and to top it off it's Disney. Disney anything is one of my greatest weakness. Thanks for sharing such a great idea.

Just read that you have Poms. Aren’t they precious? I just lost my baby after 17 years and I am so lost without her. I am trying to convince DH that another one would be wonderful but I think he is still grieving over Bitsy.
So sorry that someone did that to your Blog. God Bless
