When you Wish Upon a Wire

When you wish upon a wire
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you

Have you ever wished upon a star with all your might only for your dreams to come true?  How about wishing upon a wire?  As mystical as it may seem,  magical things are conjured when you Wish Upon a Wire.   Anything your heart desires: Dole Whips, Mickey balloons, or Cinderella’s Castle- that’s right your dreams of the perfect Minnie ears have finally come true!  Jen is the fantastical wizard behind the wire Minnie ears.  She intricately designs and creates customized wire Minnie ears even the Blue Fairy fawns over.

There is nothing this gal cannot do!  Even I tried to challenge Jen, but she is a true master of the art and the end result of my customized ears ruffled some feathers. Before I reveal the whimsical ears that were designed for me; I’d like to share the ordering process.

To start Jen asked me what theme I wanted.  There was no doubt in my mind, I needed Dole Whip ears!  So, I requested something with a Dole Whip on one side and anything magical on the other.  I was very vague,  simply because it was too hard to decide.  I just love everything Jen creates.  I feel like I need one of everything!  It all started with an idea that turned into a sketch and finished with a little touch of pixie dust!   Throughout the design process Jen would send me magic mail to my gmail inbox teasing my ever wishing heart with sneakie peeks.

The whole process was spellbounding.  I felt connected to Jen and the fabrication of my ears.  Ordering from Wish Upon a Wire is truly a unique experience I hope to endure again, and again in the future.  Everything right down to the delivery of the finished product is simply MAHVELOUS!  I was thrilled to receive my ears in tact and in perfect shape after shipping.  Jen packaged the ears in bubble wrap and tissue paper which protected the shape of the ears.  Wire ears are incredibly delicate making it it very easy for the ears to bend;  so packaging is extremely important!

Jen’s design intermixed my love for Adventure, Dole Whips, and the Enchanted Tiki Room.  I just couldn’t wait to take my ears on their first adventure…and when I did cast members and park guests couldn’t help but ask where I got my ears from.  Wish Upon a Wire’s work is literally breathtaking.  I had one park guest chase me down Main Street USA to inquire the craftsmanship of the ears and she could hardly catch her breath.  The brightly colored flowers caught her eye, but when she saw the delicate wire work of Pierre and Collette she was amazed.

And you can be too!  I have so many beautiful words for Jen and her wire talent.  She is just the sweetest and her ears will bring so much added magic to your Disney Day.  Check out Wish Upon a Wire on Instagram.  Don’t forget to give this shop a follow to stay updated on new designs and the official store opening!

Crown her with FLOWERS

dscn7871As Rapunzel looked out over the forest from her tower, she gazed her eyes on a beautiful garden hugging the edge of a nearby stream.   She longed to be free of the prison she had called home for nearly 18 years.  She would often day dream of dancing through the meadow with the butterflies and breathing in the sweet aromas of the peonies and sunflowers. Punzie was left languished, her only escape was expressed through the beautious art her soul created. Most days she would lose herself as she covered the inner rock walls of the  tower with images that bespoke of her deepest desires.  The day arrived when she had run out of  wall canvas.  “When will my life begin?”  Punzie wondered.  As she brushed her long golden hair, she looked out toward the glorious garden, sparkling in the setting sun.  The warmth of the golden sunflowers filled her heart with an abundance of joy.  Rapunzel grew intriguingly fascinated by the rich hues and tranquil design of the wildflowers.  Pascal, Rapunzel’s  pet chameleon and dearest friend, looked upon her with great admiration and a look of surprise in his little eyes.  His brain was stirring.  Pascal quickly scurried down the side of the tower  and gathered as many flowers as he could carry.   Pascal left the bushel on the ledge of the window, where Punzie had fallen into deep slumber while singing the enchanting “Flower Song.”  When she awoke she was filled with awe and splendor as she embraced the bushel composed of daisies, sunflowers, and posies and breathed in the ambrosial odors.  She gathered bits of raffia and twig that had been carried in the tower by the wind and intertwined the flowers together.  As each piece became entangled with another they began to gleam and glow with immense power.  When Rapunzel completed her masterpiece she looked at it and said, “Oh, that’s nice!”  and she placed it on her head.  She glowed like the beautiful princess that she was born to be.

“Crown her with flowers and her power shall shine forever; as bright as the glowing lanterns in the night sky.”

Sleeping Beauty’s Regal Crown

dscn7736It all started “once upon a dream,” where Briar Rose first met her true love.  He was a man with no name that shared a loving gleam  too familiar to her heart.  Little did she know that he would be her hero and her happily ever after.  After falling under the sleeping curse that was so belligerently cast by the mistress of evil 16 years prior, she would only be awaken by true love’s kiss.  So the story goes, and her handsome prince breaks the spell.  The kingdom had finally defeated Maleficent’s  curse and to celebrate King Stefan and Queen Leah held a special coronation ball.  It was time to crown the Princess!  Queen Leah had waited for this moment for what seemed like eternity.  She kept Aurora’s crown behind a glass encasement.  The golden crown was gifted to Aurora at her christening by the Wire Princess so many years ago.

dscn7734The Wire Princess is from Canada, a faraway kingdom where magic is plentiful.  She intricately handcrafts whimsical crowns from silver or gold wire.  Aurora’s crown  is made of wire, golden like the sun intertwined with glass beads that sparkle and shimmer.  Designed with elegance and comfort; the crown sits securely upon the princesses head as light as a feather with just a few hair pins.

As the Monarch crowned Princess Aurora, Prince Phillip took her by the hand and announced their engagement and affirmed his undying affection.  They were to live happily ever after and reign in the heart of two kingdoms.

Laurel, The Wire Princess also handcrafts wands, flower crowns, and fairy ears.
