in truth, i want nothing for christmas.
i feel absolutely 100% blessed this christmas to have everything i need.
i feel like i'm coming into a season in my life where i can accept who & what i am & be content.
(that's not to say that i don't have faults, but working to better them is part of life i think)
i think that's the mark of a grown up.
well, maybe not.. but it's maybe a sign of evolving as a person?
who knows maybe i'm just talking out my rear-end this morning.
but, like every other human being..
i have a short wish list of pretty things.
(aside from the non-tangible things like peace, forgiveness & selflessness i always keep a wish for in my heart)
i need a break from my christmas present project, and this seemed like a time-filler..
because i really don't want to mop the floor that really needs it.
(can you say no-leak sippy cup, my butt!)
i've had my eye on this q&a 5 year journal for some time now.
i have REALLY good intentions when it comes to journaling..
and REALLY bad follow through.
this one gives you a single question to answer each day
& then space for answers for the next 5 years.
one question? that's totally do-able.
i've had the same fiskars paper trimmer for probably 6 years..
it's never done me wrong, it's extremely portable & space friendly.
but i'm an american crafts girl... and.. i can't help but love this thing.
cuts paper & has multiple blade attachments that can be stored in the trimmer?!
what's not to love!?!
i sorta feel like a grandma with this thing on my list.
a bed-pillow. but after hours upon hours of reading this year..
a pillow like this (maybe not this exact one) is so high up on my list!
i stumbled upon this little ring set on etsy over the weekend while cruising for ideas for christmas for my mom, and fell in love.
it's not too often you see 'mama' on stuff
i love that it's stacking & has the #2.
i love that it's made from old pages.
and i especially love that it's handmade!
i've been collecting ideas for wall art for my bedroom the last few months..
i aiming to make most of it by hand..
but i just love this poster, and think it very well may make it's way onto our wall!
anyone who really knows me, knows how much of a techie i am.
i CAN NOT help it.
trust me i've tried.
i've been in love with e-readers since they arrived on the market.
first the regular kindle & then the nook.. my latest affair is with the kindle fire.
i can't help myself.
(but at $199 it's a lot more feasible than the ipad which though desirable, is far beyond what i'm willing to consider for a tablet!)
well.... i guess i didn't kill enough time...
(who i'm seriously considering renaming linus, ya know, from charlie brown)
is still sleeping & i should really mop the floor.
so i can get upset later when 2.5 seconds after he is handed his sippy cup there is milk all over the floor again.
