i have an idea.. what do you guys think?
you post a list of things you wish you culd have for xmas/chanukkah/kwanza whatever.
and then other people put their list, and you try to grant wishes, and get your wishes granted.


ie.
tanya tootleneck wants:
1. used books
2. mix cds
3. chocolate from sees candies
and i HAVE some used books i can ship or drop off to her! yay! I granted a wish!


[if you you are able to grant a wish, please PM that person and let them know!]

and its just a giant MDC gift exchange!

so post your lists. and try to grants someone else's wishes!


what do you think?

esquisitebones: I really liked this idea but I was embarrassed to be the first person on the list because then people might think I was greedy for presents. Isn't that silly! I swear, I told myself, if no one else responded I would jump on here this evening.

umm, If we have something someone wants, should we pm them for their address?

okay, here's my list:

- handmade original stuff

- Bath/shower stuff (for me)

- Lotion (for sophia)

- Solid color toe socks

- Old issues of Sunset magazine or other
cooking /recipe magazines

- Large size diapers and covers/toddler prefolds

My wish list is out of reach because what I really want is a real sewing station with a spot for my serger and regular machine. My bins desk vibrates so bad that screws keep coming lose from my machine!

But a real list might include:

-clothes that don't suck
-wardrobe consultation (I can only dress other people thankyouverymuch)
-a hairstyle
-dog care instruction (like show me how to brush their teeth without getting bit and how to cut their nails without bloodloss)
-Vegan chocolate
-A book on how to make your old t-shirts into something you'l actually wear, like "generation T"

I'm in, and just PM'd someone I can give to
Hooray for giving.

My list, all I can think of right now (minus the three offers I already have!):
* Knitting lessons
* used novels (and i have some of these to give, as well!)

Hey, how come there is no way to "strike out" text on these boards? That would have been better than deleting things from the list, IMO.

OK, I should just make a fast list - I can always edit it, right?
The only problem is I keep seeing great ideas from you guys, so I am going to look like a big copycat.

Frames! A mom can never have enough!

The CD idea is great! I could use some new music to check out!

Can I say toe socks too?


How about SEWING lessons? I have a machine my mom gave me and I don't even know how to use. Although y'all are making me want to learn to knit!

Books you probably wouldn't want to give up. I would really like to get my own copies of Hold On To Your Kids and Raising Your Spirited Child. Also anything about Homeschooling, or especially Unschooling.

I want to play. I can't think of much in the way of a list but here are a couple of things dd needs:

Tights (size 12 months or larger)

Winter booties
(Dd has poor circulation in her feet and there isn't a shoe that fits her very chunky small foot (she still wears a newborn or size 1). Socks don't stay on due to the fact that she has narrow ankles. I am having a hard time finding ways to keep her feet warm. I would love to have a knitted pair of booties which tie around her ankles).

Turtleneck Onesies (size 18 months)
