|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
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. Since this is the holiday season, let's all try to help out and give as much as we can. 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 NOTfor 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 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.
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.) There is now a separate coupon thread within the RAOK forum, if you wish to trade there.
It has gotten more and more difficult for me to handle this forum the way I feel it should be handled. I don't think I have let anyone down, but I feel it is time to ask for help. I don't even remember how I got into this but I have enjoyed it tremendously. I don't want to quit, but I would like someone to help if they know the rules and are willing to just post the threads and answer questions, every other month. Of course, I would still help, if anyone needs me. It's just that some days I co not get to check or even turn on the computer. Any takers? PM me.
I guess I need to explain a little more. I would rotate duties with whomever helps me. Duties are quite simple. On your month, you would start the new threads for each of the three subjects: RAOK, WISH, TY. Next, simply read the new post daily or couple days to ensure no one has broken the rules and finally, answer questions if someone PMs you. As I mentioned, I am always available to help out until you catch on. There is also the live help, which I have been known to use a time or two(lol). I try to welcome new members and explain the rules, not be aggressive. Still, some members might feel offended. Some have dropped out due to this, right or wrong. This has happened to both Pat(Sheeplady) and me. Go figure.
Hugs and thanks to you all for being patient and so supportive!

In reading all the forums, I have seen people discuss the bookmates/openpage covers. I would love a tradesize since I have been accumulating a lot of tradesize books since joining pbs. I know it's a longshot, but you never know.
***If anyone makes cloth bookcovers, I would love a betty boop, comedy and tragedy (masks) or celestial tradesize. (or solid color. stripes, dots or patterns- no green, yellow or orange please) ***still hoping
Tylenol Cold and Sinus coupons
Thanks to everyone who has granted my wishes. I post in the thank you thread, but in case I've omitted anyone, I want you to know I appreciate it!

Christmas Blessings to All!!
JESUS IS THE GIFT
Do you have any Nativity scenes you no longer use or have bits and pieces from?? Not oversized- pieces. ( example- Jesus- about 2 inch size - give or take a little ) Just not LARGE pieces. Any kind- Older, vintage or newer- blemishes okay. Just need the following pieces. Figurine ornaments of these figures listed below okay too:
Looking for Baby Jesus in the manger figurines ( or just Jesus )
Christian or Bible Verse Stickers or memory cards, Christian Christmas stickers
Swedish or Scandinavian Christmas decor, or cards or stickers, ( GOD JUL )
Oh thank you so much!!
