Previously I shared about having an Etsy shop for some adventure-inspired and Wood Badge-inspired creations. I've moved to a new location through Shopify, and have expanded the selection a little bit, with more new things coming soon (some in production and others just needing to be photographed and uploaded).
Currently, there are two primary collections of goodies - FOR YOUR HOME and MEMORIES OF GILWELL, each with subcategories such as:
- Coasters to Protect Your Surfaces
- Ornaments for Your Tree
- Pillow Shams to Dress Up Your Space
- Magnets for Your Fridge
- Adventure (or Gilwell) Inspired Watercolors
- with more things to come soon
I invite you to take a look by clicking the image below. You might find something you like for yourself, or for someone else special in your life.

As most of you know, during the past decade I have enjoyed sending guests all over the world as a travel agency owner. With the current pandemic and the lack of travel happening, I've gone through 10 years of adventures and have created some fun travel-inspired coasters from images I took (mostly) or from postcards I collected while on the assorted adventures (a few, but mostly my own photography though). I have more adventures and destinations not yet represented, but you have to start somewhere, right? A sampling of the images is displayed below. (I've also coupled these with my love for Wood Badge, and have a few Wood Badge-inspired items as well.)

Downtown Disney includes three distinct sections: Marketplace, Pleasure Island and the West Side, and is filled throughout with fanciful shops, restaurants, a marina, 24 screen movie theatre, small pay-to-play attractions for the young or young-at-heart such as the small carousel and train ride, or for the more-adventurous at heart the "Characters in Flight" balloon ride.
Dining adventures can be had, either with endangered species of the wild in the Rainforest Cafe, or extinct creatures of old over at T-Rex; Wolfgang Puck is represented in both the Cafe on the West Side or the Express location in the Marketplace. You'll find quick casual choices such as Earl of Sandwich or Pollo Campero; or nicer table service options such as Fulton's Crab House, Portobello, Raglan Road Irish Pub and more.
The area includes various entertainment offerings, both on a temporary and more permanent nature in an effort to keep it fresh, and ever evolving. Some days you'll find musical acts performing on the stage in the Marketplace, other days not. More permanent entertainment can be found in the West Side at the House of Blues, combining dining and entertainment, or DisneyQuest, an interactive indoor theme park, or Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba.
And then of course there is the shopping. One of my favorite stores to look in (and occasionally purchase something) is the Art of Disney store in the Marketplace, and the Days of Christmas store. Once Upon a Toy is a lot of fun, as is the Lego Imagination Center. My wife loves Basin for all of the fancy, scented soaps and bath supplies; and we all love Pin Traders... but there are so many other fun shops to explore!
Here are just a few images of the fanciful Lego creations found at Downtown Disney:
