Yea, it's April!

First:  Remember:  this is the place to wish.  We all have wishes.  If you feel someone has asked for something too large, expensive or extravagant,   just ignore.  Please be kind.  Don't make someone feel badlyNone of us know someone else's circumstances, unless we ask...........................For those of us asking, let's remember this  is Not a Christmas shopping list.  It's a place for members to wish for items for themselves and immediate family.

Here, you list a few things you like/collect/can use.  Obviously,  we all like certain things like  credits, wish-list books, etc. This is NOT for that kind of thing.   This is for  things others might have around the house that you can use (for instance if you collect postcards, bookmarks, Coke codes, or if there's a candy you love you can't find in your area, etc).  **   Please remember that books, by title or genre, should not be requested in this forum(I Wish thread).  There may be other places for that.  If someone sends you a book, please receive it and thank the member sending it.

Please limit your list to about 10 items (Remember,  you can edit your list), and if someone PMs you for your address, please acknowledge and thank them when you receive whatever they send you.  There is a separate thank you thread so we can  keep this one clean and easy to read.   It can get jumbled and hard to read with extra clutter so if we can do our best to keep it to our requests and the rare bump, that would be awesome :) ;) It's important to thank everyone who send something either by PM and or the thank you thread.

It's always good to check the RAOK thread before you post your wishes - someone may already have what you are looking for. (For those of you looking for them, coupons are offered on the RAOK  on a regular basis.)

If you post wishes, try to grant at least one wish yourself, so this place is not considered a "gimme" group,  where people post but don't send out.  PBS members can become good friends, don't abuse, please!

If you see a wish you are able to grant, just PM the poster and ask for their name and address - that's it, simple and easy and a lot of fun!

Any questions, please feel free to PM me, I will try to help.

Just a reminder - thought I'd put it in the wishes also -

These members collect expired coupons  to send to military bases.   Coupons should be no more than 3 months past date, please.  Just PM them for their address and send a bunch when you can.  Much easier than posting here and waiting for someone to request them.   This is a great help to our military families.

My wish is that we all treat each other better.  Pay it forward,  be kind and generous.  A smile or a good deed is worth much more than money can buy. 

Happy Easter to all of you, I am so happy to be a part of this group.  Sincerely, Virginia.

My wishes are always the same -

         Any sheep stuff - figurines, stuffed ones, stickers, note cards, books,anything you see with sheep on it.

        Ditto Saint Bernard items.   I am owned, protected and  dearly loved by a big ole guy named Bear. Finding anything with Saint Bernards on it is difficult, so think of me if you happen upon something.

        Stationery - I will take any off your hands.  I write to people all over the world and it will get used. Email is great, but snail mail is still  the best!

        Bath stuff - powder, bubble bath, bath salts, love any and all.  Did you get some for Chritmas and have it still sitting around?  I'll gladly take it.

Thanks for looking.

PS - I second (or third?) Virginia's wish - excellent!!

Box Tops for Education, Cambell soup labels, and the Tyson points.

 I am looking for any Barbie accessories (shoes, purses, etc)  that you have that your daughter no longer plays with.   Or a link to a good place to buy them online would also work.

Small beads to put on the Barbie dresses I will be making.

Doily pattern books that you no longer want.

Grandson is wanting Legos.  He doesn't care which ones since he likes to make his own creations.  He is only limited by his imagination and the Legos he has.

Hubby collects dragons so is looking for any you would like to send to a new home.

I would be thrilled with anything related to the Fullmetal Alchemist anime/manga. I just got sucked into the fandom a couple of months ago, and am now thoroughly obsessed. :)

I collect Bookmarks and I especially love handmade and/or beaded ones. 

If anyone has any glass beads/metal charms they want to get rid of I would be happy to take those off your hands. 

I LOVE Disney pins if anyone has any lying around.  I'll take just about any character, movie, etc. 

I also could use any Disney Movie Rewards codes if you don't collect them. 

I am also looking for a MMPB or Trade size fabric book cover. 

Happy April!  Spring is here!  :)

My only wish this month is for a bookmark.  :)  (or a few bookmarks)

A few years ago when I got married, someone on PBS made me a beautiful string bookmark with silver charms and lavendar beads.  I misplaced the bookmark after almost 3 years, and it's killing me that I can't find it.
