    My first puzzle pin set was Lilo & Stitch. I was able to complete it the same day (thank goodness), but it was the first time I realized there are 'chaser' pins that aren't shown on the artwork. :eek:

    Over the past week I’ve gotten a lot of great Pin mail and excited to share.

    The top was purchased from @MerlinEmrys from his fantastic sale that I was super glad to get to add (and to start some more collections which is always dangerous haha) and at WDW.

    I finally went to my first pin trading event on Saturday and had a lot a lot of fun! I was amazed at some of the pins I got. The Haunted Mansion Christmas and from the Fairytales event I was shocked to get as well as some POTC mystery, Pandora mystery (have been wanting this set for a loooong time now so glad to get some of my top wants in the set, and more added to the Soarin around the world set which I am getting closer and closer to completing). Also got many many older pre 2000 and released in 2000 pins which I always enjoy the old pins. Got 2 Brer rabbit pins which I was shocked to get but very grateful. Some older authentic hidden mickeys that I was glad to find of course and getting very close to completing the 10 year of pin trading GWP set that I really like. And even a Jurassic Park pin!

    Managed to grab a few more of the new Hidden Disney pins of Star Wars, Castles, and Lion King at WDW so very glad with that. Some older pins as well and a really neat Soarin and Rock n Roller coaster pin!

    Thank you! I was at a state park near Disney and started talking to someone who was a self-proclaimed Disney enthusiast (I would concur after talking with him for a while). I asked him if he had any pins and he said he enjoys pins and has a decent collection but doesn't usually trade or go crazy. He was claiming he had pins I've never heard of (I was like suurrrreeee). But he said his main reason for pins is to give them out and he ended up giving me that one and another one! Was a serendipitous meeting!

    Got two packages in the last two days. The Genie Magical Comics was from a trade with @Pinfun for my Robin Hood collection, and the Judy zodiac pin was an ebay purchase to keep up with that collection. The character cards were a freebie that came with Judy.

    I finally got a chance to get scanned pictures of the pins so I'm uploading actual pictures to PTDB. I ended up with a few of these sets, oops...

    I told myself I didn’t collect art pins but I couldn’t help myself. I need the whole series now.

    I wonder what the “art” for the entire series will be. Any thoughts?

    The art in this pin seems very greek gods to me... I am very non-artistic, but how about this:
    - Maleficent would be a jeweled golden chalice with maleficent from chest up on the front. The repeating design behind Mali will be an flowing artist rendering of a flying dragon? A top border repeating pattern would be the spinning wheel?

    I'm thinking maybe different versions of art? A painting, mixed media, wood carving, or jewelry?

    I agree that each release will probably be a different medium. Sleeping Beauty’s art direction takes many cues from medieval art, so I can foresee them doing a tapestry similar to St George and the dragon...

    I agree with everyone else, the art will probably be reflective of the period the movies came out. The Hades pin is influenced by Greek vases. Sleeping Beauty will definitely be medieval. Tangled has strong renaissance vibes. I do like Brave being a woodcarving. Fits with the movie so well. They could do Pocahontas with Native American art. Princess and the Frog could be done in a style from the Harlem Renaissance. I am going to be super bummed if we do not get a Princess and the Frog pin. It would be so beautiful.

    I think so. The Artfully Evil is a Pin of the Month release. However, as the Cruisers taught us, it may be less.

    I just ordered a bunch of pins from ShopDisney a couple days ago, and I'm super excited to get them! The only thing that sucks is that I live in Canada so it's gonna take forever to get here :/

    I just saw it and it looks so cute. I know I said no new collections this year, but I’m really like the series.
