This is where we post things we would like,(except money request or books by name). Please remember that we do not offer money for items we wish for because PBS frowns upon that. It also lessens the spirit of this thread and the forum. If you receive, try to give. Sometimes the littlest things can bring a smile.

Note: If I write to you about something you have requested, it is only to inform you that the request is not what this thread is about. If you wish to leave your request in this thread, that is up to you.

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 badly. None of us know someone else's circumstances, unless we ask...........................For those of us asking, let's remember this is NOT a place to stock pantries, get all our presents for others, etc. It's a place for members to wish for items for themselves and immediate family. Also, PBS rules do not allow one to ask for money, even for charities, here. You may ask for other items, such as stamps and boxtops, etc.

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 an item, please receive it and thank the member sending it. 

Please limit your list to about 10 items.  Some lists are getting very long. (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 so that we know the item arrived. Members do not want to send things, continously, to others who do not let them know the items have arrived.

  • I am in need of diabetic supplies.  Specifically:  alcohol wipes, lancets, Wavesense Presto Strips or FreeStyle Lite Test Strips, and solution for either Wavesense Presto or FreeStyle Lite System.  Items need to be new in box and not be expired (or at least not too far expired).  Really need these!!  With being pregnant, I have to check my sugar 4 times a day and it gets pretty expensive!!  
  • Children's DVD's:  I would love to get some Bible stories, Curious George, Baby Einstein, Berenstein Bears, Thomas the Tank Engine, Feature Films for Families, Sesame Street, Elmo's world (really anything Elmo)
  • Children's CD's:  Adventures in Odyssey, Patch the Pirate, any Christian story-type or character story CD's
  • Anything to do with sign language - especially for babies/toddlers including flashcards, books, dvd's, etc.
  • Coupons:  Desitin Diaper Rash Cream, Aquaphor Ointment, Pediacare, toddler toothbrush/toothpaste, Vicks vaporizer refill pads, Night-time baby diapers, Mylicon, gluten free products, International Delight Iced Coffee

  • DVD's, books, &/or info on RV'ing
  • Magnetic bookmarks
  • Educational Flashcards or small flipcharts:  early math (counting), english (phonics, etc.), colors, shapes, Bible, etc.
  • I work with children at church (and we are looking to be missionaries in the near future) so I would love to get any ABeka flashcard (flash-a-card) stories - Bible stories especially, but also missions & practical/character stories to use in our ministry.

Thanks to those who have granted wishes in the past.  Have a safe & happy summer!!

I posted a little something in the I Wish header to see if anyone reads the info any more.  I offered a credit to the first member who PMd me.  A new member, as it turned out, NANCY (NIMY) just sent me a PM.  I sent her a welcome and the credit.  So........for future notice, read the headers to see what's up!  We all need reminding sometimes!

I am wishing for the following:


1.  Box tops and/or labels for education (for my grandson's Christian school).

2.  Purina One or Friskies dry cat food coupons.

3.  Fresh Step Paw Points

4.  As my name implies, I am a Pittsburgh Steeler fan.  I would love to have anything Steeler-related.  Doesn't have to be new.  I can't find anything Steelers here where I live.


Thank you!

Here is my Wish List:

- Weight Watchers recipes, from WW cookbooks, magazines, shared in meetings, anything like that; I am trying to get more into cooking with Weight Watchers recipes

- Anything cross stitching related, but especially patterns (any kind of patterns as I cross-stitch for the online charity LoveQuilts and a wide variety of themes are requested to be stitched); I'd especially like those 'One Nighter' pamphlets

- Anything Doctor Who or Digimon or Marvel (Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and the like) related, I'll be happy to take if off your hands, no matter what the item is

- A DVD of the Spanish romance film 'Like Water For Chocolate' 

3D puzzle or wood model or any kind of kit or model for building a model tower/building; I'd really like one of the Empire State Building but I'd be happy for anything that looks like it belongs in a modern day city; even if all the pieces aren't there or it has been used before, it doesn't matter to me, I would still be happy to have it


I have a wish for a costume piece. I know it's a long shot but I figured I might as well ask.

- Gas mask. The kind that sticks out from your face like a Halloween mask with a huge nozzle and two goggles for the eyes (similar to this: http://fav.me/d2stb1r ). If not exactly that, I'd take something close to it.

Like I said, I know it's long shot but I figured I should just put it out there in the world :)


Also anything you think I might need for my journey to Peru. I'll be volunteering at a rainforest conservation reservation in Peru from mid-Steptember to mid-December. Any tips, info, little travel objects, or well wishes you think might be useful for my trip would be very helpful. Thanks all!


Thanks for reading my wish list! Happy August, everyone!

Scrapbook stickers, or any themed stickers of any kind, left overs are fine. 
Scrap aida clothe (cross stitch material) just looking for small sized pieces you may have left over from a project, book mark sized to about 4 x 4...I do swaps and just stitch small items so the left over cloth will come in handy. 14 to 18 count is preferable.  Looking for pieces to make bookmarks, also any baby pink or baby blue aida clothe would be wonderful!
scrap cardstock..the harder paper from scrapbooking you use for card making, preferable 4 x4 squares..any color or theme..just left overs are fine. 
coke rewards
lean cuisine reward codes
K-cups you may not like. 
My daughter is learning to cross stitch so if you have any kid type patterns...the teaching kids to learn to cross stitch patterns, having a hard time finding these, maybe you have some. Possibly any kids crafting kits. 
Last but not least...the kids birthdays are coming up, if you have anything small that your kids don't play with or don't use that I could give to mine as a gift I appercaite it, my son loves books, computer games, and transformers. Daughter loves crafting, books, and dressing up her build a bear....also a big one for her, is playing salon with our 6 month old chiweenie pup...she dresses her and the dog just soaks up the love...any size medium to large dog outfits (or that fit a long 15 pound dog)  or doggy ear bows...she would love. If you have extras your dog doesn't wear, my daughter and pup will put it to good use. 
THANK YOU!! God bless!
