My Christmas Wishlist 2012

What?  A Christmas wishlist for myself?

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Lincoln and Adelaide's Christmas wishlists.  I'm linking up to Growing Up Geeky for Toddle Along Tuesday today, and the subject is My Holiday Wishlist.  It's honestly been a long time since I've given any thought to what I want.  I'm mostly just concerned about the kids.  I want them to have a special Christmas.  I may even be trying to work on some surprises for hubby.  After that - I really just want everyone to be happy and healthy.

So it took me a little while to come up with some things that I actually want and think I would use.  I don't expect to find many (or any) of these under the tree, but just for the fun of's my list.

ChewbeadsThese fantastic accessories have been on my radar for awhile, but I don't have any of them yet.  I am really limited in what jewelry/accessories I can wear because a certain little boy is pretty determined to destroy anything he finds around my neck.  Chewbeads are designed to be chewed on.  Since the little lady will be here soon (and teething before I know it), this seems like a great solution!  My favorite is the Jane necklace in purple and/or gray.

Camera Strap Cover.  I'm attached to my DSLR - it goes everywhere with me.  A little bit of personalization would be so fun!  A custom camera strap has been on my sewing list for months years, but as projects for myself rarely get's the next best thing.  My current favorite is this Purple Damask/Houndstooth Strap Cover by Bluebird Chic on Etsy.

Winter Moon by Mindy Gledhill.  I listen to this album on Spotify almost every day.  Would love to have it in CD or mp3 form so that I can take it with me in the car as well.

Kiwi Berries by Yankee Candle.  This is my favorite Yankee Candle scent, and I burned mine to the very end this past summer.  I have Christmas scents out right now, but once the holidays are over I'm going to be missing my Kiwi Berries!

Macro Lens. I dabble in photography and really, really wanted to have a macro lens by the time  Adelaide arrives.  If you don't know - a macro is what allows you to shoot super up-close details.  A lot of people use them to shoot flowers or other nature.  I want to shoot baby fingers and toes.  The budget hasn't left room for the purchase and I am kind of a Swagbucks slacker lately, so I haven't earned enough Amazon credit on the wishlist it remains.  The model I'm eyeing is the Nikon 40mm f/2.8G AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras.  Maybe by the time we have a baby #3?  :)

Fuji Instax MINI 25 Camera. This little camera is just too much fun.  It's like the new version of Polaroid and takes the cutest mini instant photos.  Is this a logical purchase?  No.  I'm drowning in photos as it is.  But it sure seems like a super great idea.

Silhouette Cameo Starter BundleAfter years of scrapbooking, I think I have finally accepted that I want a die cut machine.  I've been in denial a long time.  But this is the awesome model I want: the Silhouette Cameo.  Not only does it cut paper, but also vinyl and fabric.  Can you even imagine the possibilities.  This thing is incredible.  I would also need the Fabric Blade to aid in all my crafty sewing projects.

So that's the list.  A little outlandish, but oh well.  No one said it should be about what I need (ie a spare phone charger for my car and some new kitchen storage containers).  But honestly?  I think what I would like most is just one solid night of sleep.  Pretty sure it's not going to happen.

I'm linking up with Growing Up Geeky for Toddle Along Tuesday!  What are you wishing for this holiday season?


  1. The dye cut machine sounds awesome! I wish my cricut did all that!

  2. Did anyone get you the chewbead necklace yet? I think I'm going to place an order today. I'm in love with the Jane necklace in black.
