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 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.

Happy Valentine's month everyone!

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 Chritams and have it still sitting around?  I'll gladly take it.

Thanks for looking.

My wishes are for my grandkids. One is into any kind of rocks or minerals and one is into anything girly .(she's 5)

I wish for prayer for our country and our leaders whether you like them or not.

I wish for prayers for employment for me and my husband and daughter.

I wish for prayers for my daughter and her marriage.

Other than that, I'm good ! LOL!


Praise the Lord, I have been offered a part-time job. Only part time but only a mile from home and I don't have to have new clothes to do it! Not that I don;t like new clothes (LOL) but that wouldbe an added expense right now.

I'm wishing for ...

-  card stock in black or a very dark color (navy blue, chocolate brown, dark red, forest green, etc.)       in any size from, say, 3x4" on up, and in any amount.  I'm getting back into making ATCs (artist trading cards) and need the dark cardstock to do some designs using my white gel pens.  Anybody else make ATCs?  Let's trade!

- any parts from old Scrabble games: letter tiles, letter racks, the board itself, etc.   I can make great quirky stuff out of it all.  Anything at all Scrabble-related would make me jump for joy, but actual wooden letter tiles or letter racks would have me gasping for joy on the floor.  (My nearby thrift store sells toys and games for just 50 cents, but I never seem to be able to find any Scrabble stuff there.  Maybe yours would have something???)

- wooden spoons or similar utensils  (new or gently used) -- I'd like to wood burn some to give as gifts (was going to do this for Christmas, but I've put it off until Mother's Day).  Also any other miscellaneous wooden objects that I might be able to burn on. 

- back issues of magazines with a positive / motivational / inspirational focus (such as Guideposts):  I'll read it , then pass it on, as I'm trying to help dispel the cloud of negativity surrounding the people I work with (adults and teenagers).  Extra points for articles with inspiring stories featuring African Americans.  Also back issues of magazines for teens that are not focused on fashion / celebrity / music -- maybe a publication of teen writing, or science articles of interest to young adults, etc.

 - freebie bookmarks -- the kind you get at the library or with advertising on them, etc.   I collect and use them.  I have some for trade, too, if anyone's interested in swapping.

- zines -- either your own or ones made by others that you are finished with. (I have some to swap, too, if you'd like.)

My older son always appreciates anything related to trains or Legos.

My younger son would love anything related to the movie Dumbo (we have the movie, just pictures or toys etc. relating to it that someone no longer wants would be neat), jungle animals, or dinosaurs.

Happy February everyone!
