Minnie's Pet SalonDisney has just released a NEW Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD, Minnie’s Pet Salon!

In this adventure, Minnie opens up her new Pet Salon and everyone is bringing their pets to get glammed up for Pluto’s All Star Pet Show!  It takes the help of the entire clubhouse to get the pampered pets ready.  When three kittens go missing, Minnie and the crew have to find them before the big show.

If your kids like animals, they are going to love this DVD! It is packed full of animal themed episodes. In additional to the full length Minnie’s Pet Salon, there are three additional episodes: Daisy’s Pet Project, Pluto’s Puppy-Sitting Adventure, Donald’s Ducks, and Pluto Lends a Paw.

Mickey Mouse ''Hipster Haunt'' Gicleé by Jerrod Maruyama - LargeHave you ever have priced the artwork at Downtown Disney and on a Disney Cruise? It is EXPENSIVE and out of reach for many of us.   One way you can get the Disney look for a small fraction of the price is to be creative.

Disney Hipster Post CardsOn a recent trip to D Street in Downtown Disney, I picked up some super cute Jerrod Maruyama  over-sized post cards featuring Hipster Mickey. If you aren’t familiar with artist Jerrod Maruyama, he is a talented character artist who has done quite a few Disney art pieces, some of the most popular being Hipster Mickey.  If you look for his prints at Disney Store online, you will see that Hipster Mickey Prints are very EXPENSIVE.  For only $4.95 each, I grabbed two post cards and figured that I would somehow frame them myself for a lot cheaper than if I would buy the original art prints.

Hipster Mickey Mouse ArtworkOnce home, I picked up a $10 frame at Target that already had the matting, placed the post cards inside and voila… a cute Hipster Mickey picture to hang in my home!
