Holiday Wishes

STEP ONE

Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered…whatever you’re comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun to medium to really big. The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it’s your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO

Surf around your friends list (or friends of friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here’s the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make someone’s wish come true. Once a wish has been granted, it will be crossed off the list.

You needn’t spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn’t to put people out, it’s to provide everyone a chance to be someone else’s holiday elf–to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not–it’s your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just…wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you’ll have the joy of knowing you made someone’s holiday special.

MY WISHLIST
1. Lots of icons. Any sort. 🙂
2. Custom themes for LJ. Yes, I know, pathetic. I prefer Flexible Squares or Smooth Sailing 🙂
3. Mood themes for my LJ. Yes, I know, LJ-centric again, LOL.
4. Christmas cards!! I want and love Christmas cards 🙂 E-mail me for the address, if you want 🙂
5. FO banners for LJ. Anything and everything works 🙂
6. Caps of movies. I can’t find any decent ones of GWTW and now that I can’t *watch* movies on my laptop (everything else works, just not movies or TV :(), I can’t do it myself.
7. A SelfSIM of me and my family 🙂
8. A Sims apartment like my own.
9. More readers to my blogs
10. A real gift wish: Anything on my Amazon Wishlist

Thanks 🙂 Here’s hoping 😛

The rest will come when I think of them 🙂

Holiday Wish List

Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered…whatever you’re comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related (“I’d love a Snape/Hermione icon that’s just for me”) to medium (“I wish for _____ on DVD”) to really big (“All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.”) The important thing is,make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want…

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it’s your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here’s the important part:
If you see a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make someone’s wish come true. Sometimes someone’s trash is another’s treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don’t want or a gift certificate you won’t use–or even know where you could get someone’s dream purebred Basset Hound for free–do it.
You needn’t spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn’t to put people out, it’s to provide everyone a chance to be someone else’s holiday elf–to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not–it’s your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just…wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you’ll have the joy of knowing you made someone’s holiday special.

Step Three
Post your wishlist to your livejournal/blog! you never know, someone may be able to grant you a holiday wish!

My Wish-List

  1. A Faster PC: Our computer is 4 years old. We’ve upgraded it as much as possible, but now, our C-drive, or our processor is starting to die. That’s causing problems with our graphics card, and just makes me frown.
  2. People to join my site: Since I know I’m not going to be getting a new PC anytime soon (house and car come first :(), I’m trying to make some money so that we can start putting away for it.
  3. A Silky Terrier: It’s my dream to have one of these absolutely adorable little dogs. Hubs has already agreed to it, though he’s trying to figure out a way to keep it from being eaten by his future dog (he’s getting a wolf-malamute mix), LOL
  4. A Microsoft Zune: Because the PC sucks, it’s hard to listen to the music I want to, and I like listening to music. CD players are nice, even when they do MP3 data disks (holds bout 100-200 songs), but it’s not like an MP3 player 🙂 The Zune fits what I want to be able to do, and all that good stuff 🙂
  5. Boxes for shipping presents: this is a weird request, but my parents live 8 hours away, and our gifts to them are fluffy blankets that match their decor and personalities, and we’re having problems finding boxes that won’t cost us an arm-and-a-leg to ship. Hubs doesn’t get discounts at the post office, even if he does work for them, LOL
  6. Icons that suit me: I get so bored, so fast, with my icons, and I’m a permanent user, yet I never reach anywhere close to my max. I’ve only gotten to half, and then I’m deleting half.
  7. More friends for LJ: I love reading and commenting, and getting input myself. I’m friends-only because there’s an asshole who likes to try and make my life a living hell, but I don’t mind new readers :). I also have a post for Christmas cards, so if you want one, I can send one 🙂 I love sending and receiving Christmas cards.
  8. A GPS Unit: My husband is a postal carrier, who might be getting tossed on different routes again (*grumble*), and since we don’t live in the area he works in, it’s easy for him to get lost at times. Instead of him having to wait for our PC to respond (he calls me for directions, LOL), he can just input it into the GPS and be on his way. It’ll also come in handy in May when we all (his family and us) go to Virginia/Carolina for the spreading of his mom’s ashes.
  9. Clothes for my daughter: She’s a size 4 (SLIM), and it’s so hard finding clothes that fit her right. The slims fit her perfectly in the waist, but are a little long. 4T’s fit her in thewaist, but are too short. Shirts are more 4T, but we want stuff to last a little longer.
  10. Clothes for my son: He’s a 2T to 3T. Heck, even some 18 months pants fit him. The kid has no idea what size he is, LOL. We’re looking at 3T’s for him, so that he’s not out-growing them as soon as he hits a growth spurt
